We Never Thought We’d See The Day When….

Vogue featured nothing but Black women:

“For the July issue of Italian Vogue, Mr. Meisel has photographed only black models. 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. Mr. Meisel was given roughly 100 pages for his pictures. The issue will be on European newsstands next Thursday and in the United States soon after.”

Kudos to the Vogue Italia folks for making such a bold move (this is sure to piss off more than a few of their subcribers – hah!). This display of authentic Brown Beauty is a must see. Get a glimpse of what’s to come just below.

Check out all 4 Vogue Italia covers right about now.

  • ATL_CPA

    I love it… it’s well overdue

  • ma

    umm why would anybody be pissed off? i really dont care what color the models are in HIGH fashion magazines. these women do not represent me anyways no matter what color

  • My son's parole officer said it's gonna be alright!

    Hip Hip Hooray!!!

  • mimi

    Okay… I hate to put a damper on this but until Alek wek is on the cover I will be really impressed. For them to put photos of Black women looking not-so black in the magazine is not surprising.The pictures have been photoshopped to reduce the african influence of their features.

    give me a break.

    Nice gesture though. BTW.. Italy has always been featuring black women everywhere. the only place I’ve been where there is a drak skinned woman on a huge billboard in the middle of the city.

    I can’t WAIT to purchase this issue! You know it’s going to fly off the shelves.

    White women everywhere have something to fear now. Once they see just how beautiful real Black women are (not the video hoodrats purposely put in front of the camera to make our women look bad), it’s a wrap. Black women will likely be featured in more magazines and on the runway, because they’ve ALWAYS had more bolder, unique features than caucasian women anyway. It’s just that nobody wanted to give them their shine, due to racism and FEAR.

  • Miss. Rissa

    @ rain maker. i agree with you 110% i guess you can say african american woman are the new “standard of beauty”

  • Negrodamus Believes

    Negrodamus Believes there is not one black women in this magazine.

  • Doagae

    ’bout damn time! This ain’t the “Angry Black Woman” issue though is it? I’m getting really phucking tired of hearing about how angry we Black woman are…hehe:)

  • LoveMeBaby

    All of the woman they are featuring are lightskinned…I don’t care either way at least blacks are finally getting some appreciation.

  • mini me and dummy you

  • Miss. Rissa
