Ethiopian born beauty Liya Kebede in a ridiculous fur situation.
Notorious bad girl Naomi Campbell looking quite regal and sophisticated. She turns it on and off in a flash - I guess she's a supermodel for a reason.
What is it about black and white images that are so compelling? Steven Meisel surely knows...
Model turned media mogul Tyra Banks still knows how to turn it on for the camera.
So the rumors were partly true, Jourdan Dunn did score the cover of this monumental issue. But there are three other cover stars as well. Will you purchase all four? (From left to right: Liya Kebede, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn and Naomi Campbell.)
Yes, I'm waiting and anticipating for the July 2008 issue of Italian Vogue to hit newsstands here in the U.S. As if the buzz factor wasn't already through the roof, Cathy Horyn's piece in The New York Times today has officially made me beyond eager to read this issue. (Cathy is such a good writer!)
As I discussed in this post, I will give a full re-cap of the issue once I have digested it cover to cover. And yes I am still brushing up on my, ahem, Italian.
Meanwhile, let's all drool over these images shot by uber-photographer Steven Meisel.
Oh and Parlour Magazine is on it! I would not have known about this NYT article until much later in the day if it weren't for their Morning Coffee post today.
P.S.- I truly hope that this issue makes some difference in leveling the playing field (in mags from Vogue to XXL) and isn't just the birthing of an insulting trend. The recent coverage of Michelle Obama is yet another reminder to me about how misunderstood Black women are.
