Photo Friday: Beautiful is Beautiful

23713853.JPG The New York Times published a great article last week on Italian Vogue's latest issue, which features all black models photographed by famed photographer Stephen Meisel. It's influenced a bit by Barack Obama's nomination, by the important talk about the lack of models of color on the runways and in magazines, and by the particular interests of the editor-in-chief, Franca Sozzani.It's an issue--like the super skinny problem--that I hope stays in the spotlight for a while and leads to change. The slideshow, which you can watch here, is just gorgeous! And in the magazine--which will hit the US sometime next week--these photos cover 100 pages! PS-Vogue has a really good story in the July issue called "Is Fashion Racist?" Check it out if this topic interests you. Happy weekend.
