What’s Jack up to? Oh Jack is a happy camper now that he has the DD to bark at and fight with his day is that much more complete.
Guess what I got my hot little hands on? My very own copy of the much coveted Black Issue of Italian Vogue. The one fashionistas in the NYC are going ga-ga over. Well my DH came home yesterday with a copy for me! It only took him checking 3 or 4 sold-out newsstands and finally hitting pay dirt in the Met Life building.

What a feast for the eyes and I would suspect the mind too if only I could read it. I’m thinking there are some really interesting articles in here dealing with race in the fashion industry. That darn Italian Vogue teases me with English titles and Italian articles. I’m dying to read the conversation with Bethann Hardison. But I’m sure with a little digging it will all turn up somewhere in cyberspace.

In the meantime, I’ll be happy with the amazing pics and hope this is stand by Italian Vogue and Steven Meisel will actually bring about a change in the fashion industry and we can start to see a real global representation of beauty in print and in the runway. Are you listening American Vogue, Elle, Bazaar etc… You can read my past thoughts here. Now for a few pics!
