Check out these images of smiling couple Chris Brown and Karreuche Tran at the Michael Costello fashion show at NYFW. The lovers, seated next to Christina Milian, look like they just walked off the set of the upcoming Mad Max movie in their matching fur outfits. We’re sure it’s just a matter of time before PETA sends the hounds after them but we have to admit that they do look stylish.

Tran captioned an image of herself seated between Brown and Milian at the show, “my two baes.”

Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
