When I look at these images, I don't think 'Vogue are really wonderful for using black models'. I think 'this is a great editorial' and 'I really love the styling' so what is it about using all black models that is so shocking/empowering/contemporary because forgive me for being ignorant, shouldn't we be past that by now? I think there's something very sad about using 'all black' models as a statement as it only highlights the inequality still evident in society. Racism is obviously still a massive issue and Vogue should have made this beautiful editorial about showcasing the clothes - nothing else.
Sadly, it seems, this still isn't possible, even in the open-minded world of fashion. What are you're thoughts on this subject? Also, having seen that incredible Jil Sander crop-up twice now (Drew Barrymore wore it on the red carpet and looked fab), I really hope an affordable high street version appears because I love it!
