More Italian Vogue Pics...



Seriously, the entire magazine is going to be online before anyone I know actually gets to buy it. These pics and several more are up at this site.

Instead of looking at models dressed up like Grace Jones, I would like to see Grace in the issue. I'm really hoping there is a group shot of the older and newer faces.

A few days ago I was hanging out in Borders and watched a highly irate sister asking the customer service clerk about the issue. She said she's already been to five stores and wanted an answer about when the issue would be in DAMMIT!

Lord, if white folks think Michelle Obama is scary they're not going to know what to do with several thousand black women that want their magazine fix yesterday! I don't know about you but I'm just about ready to start coloring in the faces of models in my other fashion magazines.

I was in NYC this Sunday. Since I live in a small town in NJ, I decided to check out some of the magazine shops in NYC. I didn't see the issue so decided to purchase something else. When I approached the counter, before I could say anything, the cashier told me to come back later this week or next week for "something special." According to him, "everyone has been asking about it."

I've been to Barnes and Noble's at least 5 times looking for this issue. I’m starting to get upset as well. This past weekend I refused to walk out of the store with nothing so I purchased Colours, a new mag for me, with Jessica White on the cover. I have to say, it was a nice treat. Expensive, but nice.

Brigitte said...

@shaymer- I bought Colours too! I'll probably scan some images from it soon. The $7.99 I paid was much better than the $20 per issue that they want on the website :)

@st- Even the hole in the wall international magazine store I went to said that people had been calling about it.

@Shaymer and Brigitte

Great minds think alike because I did a post on Coloures two days ago. Now there's a magazine we should support.

I would love to see Grace in this isse instead of a wannabe. I love Grace and have been a fan for 20 years. Damn, I'm old.

If you're missing Grace she has a new fabulous video:

And are you really surprised by the animal skins? That's an old trope.

Yea the current Coloures is a nice mag! I was talking to a guy at BN who stocks the magazines, he said that the international mags come out about a month after they debut in the country of origin. Basically the international mags come out around the last week of the ISSUE month.

Homegirl at the BN needs to CALM DOWN. It IS just a magazin, lol.
