I love Vogue Italia!

On top of their historic "Black" issue last year, Vogue Italia's July issue features a section devoted to Barbies... those of African descent! I love their forward-thinking; it's inspirational and cool. Although it shouldn't be a big deal, it is. It just shows how hard it is for African-American dolls, let alone women, to be highlighted & loved as much as dolls with a lighter complexion.

July 2008. Historic. Liya. Sessilee. Jourdan. Naomi.
