Fashionista.com has scans of a recent spread in American Vogue profiling some of fashion’s brightest stars:
That’s right ladies and gents: not one, or two, but THREE non-caucasian models. On top of featuring confirmed star Arlenis Pena, they also give shine to Nigerian model Oluchi Orlandi and Indian Beauty Lakshmi Menon.
I must admit, my heart is warming slowly towards Vogue; in July 2008, they asked if Fashion was Racist, and after a resounding chorus answered, “YES” they started to make real strides to be more inclusive.
I might think about reinstating my subscription, but the real question is: Does this change your opinion of Vogue?
