Vogue Black

Sometimes vogue cuts it for me and sometimes it doesnt, dont get me wrong Vogue is the most important fashion magazine but sometimes it doesnt lure. However i love reading vogue italia i feel they are more 'colourful' is that the right word hmm. I came across their vogue black issue and loved the fashion spread and the fact its an entire vogue black issue though online. I do remember the heads at Vogue did refuse to give us vogue africa but who cares we can still do our own thing.
Here is a statement accompanying the spread
A tribute is due to the woman whose skin tone ranges from alabaster to mahogany to smooth onyx, who can flawlessly carry any makeup look — from gold dusted lids to fuchsia blush to ripe purple and pink glosses. These pages pay homage to the versatile woman whose hair can oscillate from a tightly coiled and coifed Afro, to sleek layers, to a slicked back pixie cut in a matter of minutes. To the divine woman whose enviably full lips, strong, white teeth, and delightful smile have been known to electrify the hearts of many. To the siren whose smooth, velvety skin blocks the sun yet remains supple and unblemished with the passage of time.
Variable and diverse, black beauty escapes simple classification. But no matter the incarnation — whether the color of molasses, cafĂ© au lait, bronze, tan, or tinged like desert sand — black beauties radiate with poise and multidimensional splendor.
Here is the fashion spread which was a tribute to black beauties.
