All black

Under its inspirational editor, Franca Sozzani, Italian Vogue has over the years gained a reputation for being more about art and ideas than commerce and big beauty companies. Ms. Sozzani doesn’t mind a touch of controversy and breaking new ground, and the latest issue featuring models that are all women of colour is totally in line with that. In a reverse of the general pattern of fashion magazines, all the faces are black, and all the feature topics are related to black women in the arts and entertainment. Leaked pics have been popping up on the internet all week, and this is probably my favourite. Can’t wait for it to hit the stores!
