US VOGUE'S "BLACK MODELS" ARTICLE DROPS

US VOGUE JULY 2008US VOGUE JULY 2008

This much you can say for Madame Wintour. She's not afraid to put her mouth where the money is. The July Vogue has put its " Is Fashion Racist" article out and it pulls no punches . The edit features runway favorites Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn. The casting goes one fresh new step further and puts Dominican newcomer Arlenis in the full Vogue spotlight. Its a great sign of fashion leadership that Vogue didn't wait for anyone's runway or advertising approval before putting their weight behind Arlenis. Rumor was rife that Chanel and Jourdan also lensed a cover try as a part of their shoot, but the speed with which this article has gone to print soothes the possible disappointment on those girls not riding the cover. The thing I find most interesting about the casting of these three girls is how different they all are, Dominican, English of Jamaican heritage and Korean/African-American. The article is a must read.
