Italian Vogue is slowly but surely proving that their commitment to diversity isn’t just a fad. Tyra Banks recently released a statement saying that the next winner of America’s Next Top Model will score a cover of the magazine along with two several page long editorials:
She says, “I was so excited when Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Italian Vogue, reached out to me at the end of last year to be a permanent contributor on the recently launched vogue.it (Italian Vogue’s new website) – I was (and AM!) so honored and excited to be working so closely with such an iconic brand. Franca and I really hit it off; we really connected on a personal level, but even more so as we exchanged visions for the future of our brands. I knew instantly that we were destined to partner together in another BIG way; I even told Franca I’d be in touch as soon as I figured out what that was – OH, and I wasn’t kidding. Here’s ANTM with an Italian Vogue cover, and not one, but TWO in-book fashion spreads for our winner.”
Here’s to a significant upgrade to the ANTM franchise. And OMG, Tyra and I are like coworkers at Vogue.it. How exciting!
