THE POWER OF VOGUE ITALIA

Excerpted from www.rocketrend.wordpress.com
Vogue Italia all black issue:

This is what happened after:
i-D September 08′       
Jourdan Dunn in Prada photographed by Emma Summerton.
I love the tagline ”You owe it to yourself. Set the world on fire.”
Isn’t she a stunning history maker? The bangs distracted me a little but overall, this is the fiercest cover of the year (so far).

Harper’s BAZAAR US September 08′
Tyra Banks
This is definitely not as high fashion as i-D’s cover, but it’s rare for Harper’s to put a black model-host on the cover instead of a random white Hollywood celebrity. Tyra deserves the cover, it is totally for her. (See the editorial of her styled as Michelle Obama here)

Much more high-fashion.

POP Fall 08
Jourdann Dunn in Prada
In this issue, all six models (Aggy, Amber, Natalia, Jourdan, Naomi, Oluchi) are styled as ‘hot nuns’ and  photographed by Sebastian Faena.
And, God knows what Miuccia might already be thinking seeing Jourdan in all these Prada outfits.  A campaign? An opening/closing slot?

Naomi Campbell. I am seriously getting an overdose of her in the  recent months.
Oluchi Onweagba.
I still find it a little ridiculous that this 6ft1 Nigerian stunner wasn’t included in the VI all black issue (is it because of her Victoria Secret contract?)
I am hoping that this trend is not a five minute thing. The ultimate is for more black models to front ad campaigns…
