…it’s kind of a really, big deal that Vogue India — arbiter of all things beautiful — has decided to tackle the issue with a bold headline proclaiming the “Dawn of Dusk” and a cover that captures a bevy of bathing suit clad beauties — all whom exemplify fairness of the dark-skinned variety.
“Every generation has its share of beauty myths,” explains the editorial. “Perhaps it is time to say that as a magazine we love, and always have loved, the gorgeous colour of Indian skin…dark, dusky, bronze, golden – whatever you call it, we love it.” Dawn of Dusk, sounds like the dawn of an new era to us. And maybe even a rallying cry.
We hope you’re listening, Anna, because try as he might, Andre can’t do it alone. (via Vogue India - April Cover | Styleite)
