vogue italia feb 2011 'the black allure'

shot by emma summerton and featuring a bevy of famous black-skinned beauties inc chanel iman,i think certain parts of this editorial were v expected,generic and to again attempt to form any group of non-europeans into an outside niche speaks to a slight racism or narrow-mindedness,i detest it when they segregate asians,or blacks on the runway or editorials,then hype it up as if its some exotic,proud achievement,there are times however when the ends justify the means,and the photos here are some of the most gorgeous i've seen,with select,very recognizable pieces from jil sander,lanvin amongst others its apparent every shot took quite an investment of money and time,down to makeup,hair and changing angles,the subtle,alive tones and colors are so inspiring,and the beautiful clothes come second to an editorial that stands strong by its own identity,this is perfection
