VogueItalia Vogue Italia Puts Thick Models On Cover

Vogue Italia editor, Franca Sozzani, sure knows how to stir the pot. First she creates a special section on her website devoted to black beauty, then “curvy” (can’t stand that term–it’s the ultimate in meaningless descriptions), and now she has a cover featuring three models who are stacked, aka thick*. That this creates a stir in 2011 is somewhat amazing and speaks to the stranglehold that anglo-beauty standards still hold over the industry. We’re glad to see signs that the tide is turning, but damn the pace sometimes feels positively glacial!

*Thick as defined by Urbandictionary: a word used to describe a female who may be defined by health charts as “overweight,” but still attracts mad guys because the weight is in the right places (hips, buttocks, and breasts).

  1. Lemonade:

    Is it a coincidence that they’re sitting around food??

    Good question Lemonade. I was wondering the same thing. But the cover is trying to for woman sitting around a table full of aphrodisiac food because their dressed in lingerie. You should check out Robin Thicke Sex Therapy video. One of the scenes show’s him and a model at table full of food which is supposed to be aphrodisiac food.
