    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.

    i'm actually kind of disappointed with the covers..i love the idea but they all look so airbrushed...liya particularly...she is such a beautiful woman...what have they done to her face...

    i can't make out all of the names on the left but i can see some...

    alek wek..
    arlenis sosa..
    chanel iman..
    iman..
    karen alexander..
    yasmin warsame..

    can anyone read any others?..

    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.

    Im sure she works her but off. And I love Sesilee as well, but its like "one of these things is not like the others"

    All these girls had momentous things happen to them

    Naomi- nuff said
    Liya- Estee Lauder (1st black girl), US Vouge cover (given to a model, and a model of color....Unheard of):woot:, French Vogue issue dedicated to her
    Jourdan- First black girl to walk Prada:woot::woot:. She has risen from having lackluster succes to being featured in the 4 most important fashion publications. (French, Brittish, American and Italian Vogue) Great Runway Season!

    Sesilee- Kanye West video???????:shock:

    Edit: And its not that im trying to pick at anyone and talk about who deserved a cover. If VI had a cover with Linda E, Giselle, Stam and then they had Skye S one. I still would be like " Are you kidding me?"

    i'm really impressed by Sessilee's cover. i think the covers overall are stunning and classy, though i'm not really liking Naomi's. they could've done a lot more with hers.. I can't wait to see the content, and i'm also hoping it's a fold out cover because i can't afford to buy them all.

    What a breath of fresh air. After comments by Nick Knight regarding the difficulty getting models of color in ad campaigns it's wonderful that Franca Sozzani and Steven Meisel took courage in getting an issue dedicated to the model of color - black model. Now a September issue would really be a coup :))

    ^Hysterical:lol:! Anyhow,I don't really believe I've seen Sesilee like that(like a Jourdan or a Chanel). BTW,Jourdan was the first to walk for Prada in awhile...but its been done before.

    finally!!

    the covers look weird though, like the vogue strip is in a black banner and not blended into the cover image. but i do like jourdan's the best.

    This is amazing!
    However I was expecting Alek to get the cover. Tired of Naomi's plastic face. :clap: for Seseilee, she deserves it and what a privilege to be picked by Meisel and introduced to the world of fashion as a "new face". Jourdan shines!
    I'll get Sessilee's cover for sure.

    Yes dahling...I know the one and only Miss Omi did it first. But c'mon almost 9 years???? Liya, Alek, Yasmin didn't move Miss Miuccia, so Jourdan obviously has something going for her!!!!
