Vogue Italia made a big statement when it released its all-Black issue back in 2008, causing mass hysteria and prompt sell-outs, then it in turn released another issue the following year. For its February 2011 issue, they’ve shot an uber-amazing editorial featuring the top Black models in the industry including Ajak Deng, Aminata Niaria, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdann Dunn, Joan Smalls, Rose Cordero, Kinee Diouf, Georgie Badiel, Chanel Iman, Melodie Monrose, and Lais Ribeiro. Styled by Edward Enninful and shot myEmma Summerton, the story evokes a strong 1920s glamour with the girls’ rocking slinky gowns, dark bold lips, finger wavves and decadent jewels!
