History, Pure History

So I know I'm kind of late, but on Friday while I was sitting at my desk staring into the computer I decided to hit to to check out what was going on in the world, or at least in New York. Of course I clicked on Style& Fashion and started to read an interesting article. The article, Conspicuous by Their Presence was about the prejudice towards Blacks in the fashion world and howItailan Vogue is dedicated its July issue to Black models. I was quite intrigued at the thought of a whole issue of Vogue featuring only black faces. This is historic I thought to myself. The mag will feature Tyra Banks and Miss Campbell, who were shot by famous and brilliant photographer Steven Meisel, who shot Madonna for that kinky book called SEX. I am definitely going to buy the July issue ofItailan Vogue! I mean it is a piece of history for pete's sake.
