Vogue Italia to Publish an issue featuring Black models



According to Fashionista blog, Steven Meisel has already shot an entire issue of Vogue Italia with all black models. His hope is that the other Vogues will take note and start to diversify their own pages. I couldn't find any information on which lucky models will appear in the issue or when it will go to press. I just know that I might have to camp out at the newsstand when this one lands and if I see any animal print on the cover somebody is going to get hurt. Thanks to Carmen at Racialicious for the update. My vacation is nearing its end and I should be back home updating this blog around the end of the month, much fatter and poorer thanks to French wine and cheese and the unspeakably awful USD exchange rate in Europe.

I've been reading about this, I really can't wait either. I agree with you on the animal print oh and the khaki safari theme.

Where can I buy this issue in the US? I'm planning to purchase several copies and hand them out to my nieces. I would have loved to see something like this when I was a gawky teenage girl.
