All-Black Vogue Hits Magazine Shelves... In Italy
The highly anticipated "Black" Issue of Vogue Italia is out this month. The magazine's editor says the decision to use models of African-descent for this special edition was influenced by a protest group of models claiming racial discrimination in New York, as well as by Barack Obama’s success in America's presidential race.
This issue features images of black women taken by photographer Steven Meisel. Naomi Campbell, Iman, Tyra Banks, Liya Kebede, Jourdan Dunn, Alek Wek and Pat Cleveland and full-figured model Tocarra Jones are among the fashion icons found in the black edition.
