As we see black beauty continue to get the love it deserves from around the world, Vogue Spain’s March issue follows suit by declaring “Black Is Beautiful” with Ivorian-British model, Aya Jones, at front and center.

Get a glimpse of some of the enchanting photos shot by photographer Nico Bustos and styled by Belen Anolín in Botswana:

Jones just wrapped up Paris Fashion Week in Miu Miu, and even shared with The Cut her favorite natural hair products, as designers continue to embrace the idea of models rocking their tresses naturally on the runway.
