Ummm to me Sesilee is should have not gotten the cover, what has she ever done that is so important. Liya yes. Jourdan..duh. Naomi....thats a given. Sesilee...NO. Alek should have totally gotten that, she represented something never before seen in fashion and had a million other agencies trying to find someone who looked like Alek. Iman, this woman was the queen of High Fashion at a time when black girls were not really the prototype of high fashion ( Vogue under Mirabella). Tyra.....she changed allot and opened allot of doors. Beverly Johnson...hello first black girl on Vogue. Chanel Iman....the youngest girl of color in Vogue. So dissapointed.

Oh my gosh, I'm so happy! This is so amazing. I feel like crying. My gosh, Sess looks flawless.

(BTW, I think those Toccara rumors are true--look on the cover! I think I faintly see "Jones" there. Interesting.)

well maybe they wanted models that are still in the public eye? i love sessilee but you have a pretty good point.

EDIT: exactly why there shouldn't be a "black issue." i mean now we're arguing over who should have gotten the cover. if black models would get the appreciation they deserve and weren't limited to being on the cover almost once in a blue moon, there would be no problem.

both liya and jourdan look absolutley flawless. if there are multiple covers i'm buying both. shame they featured tyra, i find her television persona so annoying it's actually turned me off seeing pictures of her.

Names I can make out from the cover.

Alek Wek
Alva Chin
Arlenis Sosa Pena
Chanel Iman
Gail O'Neil
Iman
Jourdan Dunn
Karen Alexander
Naomi Campbell
Sesselie Lopez
Tyra Banks
Oluchi?
Veronica Webb
Yasmin Warsame

And as far as I'm concerned Sesilee belongs there - if she's good enough for Meisel she's good enough for me and she kills it in every editorial. Personally I think its all about who has the best picture - I would have preferred all fresh faces to Liya and Naomi but the creative team made their choice.

Well what can I say....I'm glad this issue happened! The covers are pretty lovely(especially Naomi,Liya & Jourdan),but I want the one with Campbell nothing else will do. But I agree with GB about Alek! I mean since she didn't get the cover,she better have a lengthy layout inside especially considering they picked up people like Banks who rarely was in Vogue and things of that nature. Anyhow,I'm I might just buy all 4 like Incognito said,jokes. Any edit info guys on Veronica,Kiara,Karen,Iman & Yasmin....women like that who were in Vogue & did lots of fashion.
