It's a Blackout!!!

Viva Vogue Italia!!!! I just want to scream that you must run out and get the July issue of Italian Vogue. I mean RUN, don't walk. The issue is dedicated to Black models!!! http://www.lerockbox.com/?p=437. I heard about Vogue dedicating the whole July issue to Black models due to the disapearance of Black models on the runways in recent years, I think about a month ago. So July 1st I started scouring the bookstores for it, but sadly to no avail. I found that I was actually rapidly becoming obsecessed with it. It got to the point that the salespeople would see me and before I could even say anything, they would say we still don't have it yet Ma'am. So last night my friend calls me, because I have told practically everyone that I know that I have to have this issue of Vogue Italia, short of hopping a plane to Italy. You know I figured the more eyes out looking for it the better. Well to my great pleasure my friend told her friend about it and last night he bought it for moi!!!! So in my eyes he is the MAN!!! So now I have it in my hot little hands I just have to say that the magazine is way FABULOUS!!! I think that I might even sleep with it tonight

I haven't even looked for one. Shame on me, right? Maybe they have some on eBay.

I'm not black (being of German-Irish-French descent) but it generally bugs me that you rarely, if ever, see a black model on a magazine cover. Check out the magazines next time you're at the local supermarket! Seriously, whoever picks out the cover shots should realize not everyone is a blue-eyed blonde. Can't we get some variety out there?
