Italian Vogue to feature ALL black models

For the July 2008 issue of Italian Vogue, photographer Stephen Miesel will put a twist on the commonly accepted fashion magazine layout which generally consists of solely white models. For this issue, he will have a 100 page spread where all of the faces and features are represented and geared towards a black female audience. To name a few of the models who will grace the pages: Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Toccara Jones. The issue will hit the European stands this Thursday (6/26) and U.S stands soon after. Be sure to get your copy Ladies. Miss Elise sure will.

"Over Ms. Sozzani’s initial objections, he also hired Toccara Jones, a
full-figure model, who became known from “America’s Next Top Model". "I wanted to say something about weight, and I’m never allowed to do that,” he said. “I
met Toccara and thought, she’s beautiful. What’s the deal with her? She’s great
and she’s sexy
