Italian Vogue Feb 2011

The ground breaking all-black issue for July of 2008 prompted the Vogue Italia to repeat an all black model issue.

I have asked my advertising clients so many times, ‘Can we use a black girl?’ They say no.” The concern is that consumers will resist the product, he said. “It all comes down to money.” I find this insulting considering that black folks spend billions of dollars on products….lets not even go there with the beauty and hair weave industry. It is time for advertisers to respect multicultural consumers and make their core focus to market to an global audience that includes African American and other ethnic groups.

The all-black model editorial, “The Black Allure,” shot by British photographer Emma Summerton and styled by Edward Enninful. Just in time for Black History Month. Vogue Italia February 2011 issue features black models Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, Melodie Monrose, Ajak Deng, Alenis Sosa, Sessilee Lopez, Rose Cordero, Georgie Badiel and Mia Aminata Niaria.

Recently American Vogue, ran an all-Asian model editorial spread, hinted that an all black model layout was on the horizone in a blog post.
