Thanks for the snaps tentalicious, really appreciate it.. The last three editorials sort of make up for this mess of an issue. Candice looks hot.

Exactly. Now if the girls' skin color was painted a different tone and given different 'ethnic features' then yes it would come off as racist.

This editorial is showcasing a culture not a lot of people know anything about. I've been to hair shows and I've grown up in areas where this style is worn everyday and it's a style many races exhibit, not just the one race many are assuming.

With that said, the main edit is fabulous, lush and in your face- the exact qualities that describe hood chic.

I'm not in love with the Meisel editorial, the gifs look better than the photos.

Racism or elitism, I don't even care. That ed is not genius nor provactive, but lazy. It's very easy to rile up people and I don't see any other purpose beyond that.
Consequently, Vogue Italia can leverage itself as the alternative vogue, somewhere between pretentious art and commercial fashion.
So the cycle continues and another ed will crop up and another controversy will start.

Well at least it worked, look at how many pages of discussion we've had for the cover and the main ed alone. That having been said, I don't think they'll reach their ultimate goal which is selling more copies; many members (and probably many people outside tFS) are quite upset about the way this sub-culture is being projected.

For me, the only ed worth opening the thumbnails for has been Guinevere by Sundsbo. Eagerly waiting for another reason to purchase this issue...

Besides the huge dissapointment that was the main edit, the rest of the issue is pretty solid. Love everything about Guinveres edit, her hair, the styling, the pink car, fabulous

Can we not call Joan Smalls an idiot and insult her? She needs to eat, therefore she took the job. Whether she understood the implications or not (and she has never called herself American, always Puerto Rican... just saying, it's important to respect that) is not even the point. Shame Meisel, Sozzani, the stylists, etc. for it, but I hate it when people blame the models.

But yeah, I won't be buying this issue. Sorry, not sorry. I love most of the eds, but the main one is pretty shocking to me. If they wanted to glorify the culture, couldn't they do it like they glorified heavier women in June? Glamorous, high end photos. They could've EASILY done that here.

There is a big difference between paying homage and making mockery of people who inspire editorials. VI could have made a nice homage to the culture they are representing in that heinous edit by appropriating elements of that culture and making them more high fashion. Instead they made a mockery of the people by choosing to highlight stereotypical ideas they have about those women (babies, malt liquor) and presenting them in the most tasteless way imaginable. They forgot to even make the clothing in the editorial seem desirable as they were too busy trying to cram as many stereotypes and caricatured elements as the could into each frame. It's sad magazines like VI are held up as some arbiter of taste and class when they are lacking in both.
