Liya Kebede * Sessilee Lopez * Jourdan Dunn * Naomi Campbell / Vogue Italy July 2008 Cover
The July issue of Vogue Italia features only black models has sparked controversy in both the fashion industry and popular culture. Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, created the “black issue” to draw attention to the lack of black models used in the fashion industry. The issue features over 100 pages of prominent black models such as Jourdan Dunn, Naomi Campbell, and Tyra Banks. This isn’t the first time Vogue has sparked racial controversy but, to Vogue’s credit, the controversies trigger discussion, which is always a good thing.
It's like pullin a tooth, to get a non--white on the cover of vogue, well that's just for vogue italia alone. SHADY BIZ y0.
