It seems that US Vogue is following in the footsteps of it's Italian namesake by publishing an editorial featuring only black models in it's March edition. The 10 page spread, entitled "The Life Rhapsodic" features models Ajak Deng, Anais Mali, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, Arlenis Sosa, and Joan Smalls with various black artists in looks from the Spring runways.
I first reported on the all-black fashion editorial in Italian Vogue here and now that American Vogue has come out with its own version, it seems like a cheap ripoff. Italian Vogue has done this twice and now it seems that US Vogue is jumping on the bandwagon, recycling the same models used in the earlier spread. Although we should be celebrating seeing more diversity on the pages of Vogue magazine, I don't think this was done the right way. You be the judge.
