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.
You can't see that they are mocking these people and trying to make them look like a joke? The pregnant picture is beyond insulting.

Just looking at the Vogue Italia Cover Archive, I think that in the latter of 2011 and so far in 2012 the magazine is recently getting it's special something back..that it seemed to be lacking for the past 2-3 years. I think that it just needs a little refinement. As interesting and controversial the main story may be conceptually, the content itself is a little boring. I think there is a lack of direction in the way Meisel has been shooting his stories..and it's even made worse by the layout. In order for Vogue Italia to really move forward it just needs to be more polished. I feel as though so far these last few months we've seen a bit more of an effort in the stories and the best of what Meisel has done isn't good just because it's reminiscent of Vogue It's earlier days. I for one am now more excited to see what they'll do next month..and I haven't felt that anticipation for the magazine for a while. I've always been interested to see what comes next, but it seems as though there is more of a focus right now that's helping them pull it all together, little by little, month to month.
