Vogue Italy has gone ALL black!!! Vogue is the biggest fashion magazine in the world and one of the first. The magazine will be the first to have all black models throughout the July 2008 issue. The photographer of the issue is Steven Meisel. He is considered one of the most successful fashion photographers in the industry, shooting regularly for both US and Italian Vogue and lately W.
There will be 4 different covers (as seen above) which include Liya Kebede, Sessilee Lopez, Jordan Dunn, and Naomi Campbell. There are a couple of familiar faces inside that Tyra Banks, Toccora Jones (ANTM), and Chanel Iman to name a few.
I say it’s about damn time!!! Black is beautiful and so is fashion. Fashion shouldn’t be about skin color it should be about the clothes But it seems that the color card is always being played. I love the idea that Vogue will have an all black issue as this inspires me as a future fashion designer; It makes to want to do something great.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF VOGUE GOING BLACK???
