  4. So is Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, in Williams’ opinion, and when the subject of LeBron James’ controversial Vogue cover with Gisele Bündchen comes up, he snaps out of the bored stupor the fourth round of photos has put him in. “I was happy to see that it happened,” he says about seeing the first black man on the cover. But what of the racist imagery? “I’m black so I don’t get King Kong outta that. I think that says something about the person who sees that. [LeBron] doesn’t look like a monkey to me.” He wants to be challenged and when he is, a heated debate ensues. “It’s an iconic picture for fashion. That’s the most important thing,” he says. “And I hate it when people drum up controversy over stupid shit like that. It’s like, yo, look at it objectively. Remove your own personal baggage. Artistically, it’s an iconic picture and it will go down in the books as striking, brave, risky, edgy — and that’s what fashion is. Now, had we given him a safe picture, no one would care. And some of us might even be complaining — ‘See they put him in a suit? They couldn’t give him nothing iconic!’”

  6. As a choir of angels echoed through the Palm Court of the Plaza hotel Wednesday afternoon, Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig sent out a chorus of frothy, gilded frocks of the highest order. Their otherworldliness was inspired by William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s dramatic nineteenth-century painting A Soul Brought to Heaven, and the effect of their shimmering embroidered silhouettes ending in sweeping and swishing tulle made it seem as if the models were walking through clouds in an area of heaven reserved only for the truly glamorous.

  9. …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.

  11. “I do sincerely hope that American Vogue will continue to use Asian models, and that this is not some ‘flash in the pan trend” comments JP on Models.com. “After all, American Vogue has never featured an Asian model on its cover, and I can’t remember the last time I saw a single Asian girl story in the magazine.”
…Not everybody has been ungenerous about the feature however, with many conceding that any progress is progress. “Wow, this is AMAZING! Finally Vogue is featuring Asian models!” comments one happy Models.com reader. What remains to be seen is whether Vogue will continue the positive progress in forthcoming issues. With Asian models becoming so commonplace in the industry as a whole, and with a whole new generation breaking through at the most recent collections, hopefully that cover won’t be far off.
