Vogue Italia May 2011: Tribute to Black Beauties

Check out Vogue Italia’s tribute to “Black Beauties” in a 15 page editorial spread featured in the May 2011 issue.  There has been quite a buzz in the journalist world whether it justifying the “color blind” theory to beauty and fashion and whether it was necessary for a race-based issue.  I give these magazines props for featuring black models in high fashion because we may not dominate this industry but we do represent well.  What do you guys think, is an all black issue necessary?
