My sentiments were expressed already.....He could've did something so great with this, but it turned out to be quite tasteless.....I'm quite appalled to be honest.


And the IRONY in it being JOAN on the front cover (her first at that)...

The editorial turned out to be so cheap! This looks cheaper than some of Terry's tasteless mess! What a mess? The styling is horrendous, snas the layout!

Im disappointed because it's not at par with the beautiful! I love the concet but meisel went overboard wth the idea

The main editorial kind of reminds me of 'Live on the Web' (January 2007). I'm not from the US and don't know / get all the stereotypes portrayed in the editorial so I can't really understand how shocking it feels to some members.

Meisel in american, but maybe we should remember this is Italian Vogue, and the target audience is, after all, italian readers. I don't know how much Vogue Italia sells outside of Italy, but I don't think many people who are not very interested in fashion would buy it. After all, all the articles are in italian. Maybe in Italy an editorial portraying something like mafia would be considered shocking (though I don't know since I'm not italian), but I don't think it would cause any kind of conversation of is it 'right' or 'suitable'.

All in all, I think it's kind of appalling how people are accusing Joan of participating in this editorial. She's an adult and should be able to do any kind of editorials she wants without having to think 'are my fans going to think this is offensive'.

Regarding the main editorial: is it really mocking certain subcultures? Couldn't it be a hommage? Perhaps Meisel is celebrating their style.

Its pretty obvious this is supposed to be a mocking and not celebration of style. Meisel is a master photographer and if he wanted to do an homage or celebrate the artistry of a subculture's style, he could do it plainly where no one would even question it. The editorial was probably just supposed to be a light hearted attempt at humor.It's pretty obvious he thinks the style is funny, trashy, and distateful with the references to Joan in the urinal with her legs spread, tuna, the baby changing station in the fast food restaurant. (Also so many references to babies, and they made the one model appear pregnant.)

Anyway, I'm not sure of TFS's rules or else I would post it here myself, but celebrity seaborn, one of the hairstylists that Meisel mocked in the shoot, recently did a shoot for a magazine. You can see that even with the crazy and out there hair styles the models are portrayed with dignity.

I also realized something else about the main editorial that bothered me.

Putting all the race/class issues aside, it doesn't even seem as if Meisel did any research for this. It's like he googled the most outlandish pics of black hair styles (as we can see by the side by side comparisons), threw in stereotypes about malt liquor, weaves and single mothers and called it a day. That's just lazy. He didn't treat the style with any respect whatsoever.

Also, I would not blame Joan for working on this. It would be career suicide to say no to one of the top photographers in the industry. Models of color get very few opportunities and I don't blame her for taking it. Also the fact that she is not American, she may have been somewhat ignorant of what the implications were.
