How do you justify a Vogue September cover? In 2010? Hopefully, with some great fashion pretext, some undeniably significant models. Right? Not.
Not according to Vogue US. Who put Halle Berry on the cover of their September 2010 issue just because she hasn’t done an interview in over three years. And, naturally, all the fashpeople out there waiting breathlessly to receive their Vogue September, they were all craving for some Halle Berry confession session. Right? Not. However, if you are curious for more, hit the jump, hopefully, your curiosity will be satisfied with more images! (click here for the gallery!)
Undeniably looking great, as much as she said to have accepted this Vogue cover and her coming-out again interview because of what it means to the world, Halle doesn’t get to be fashionable about it:
The only reason she is submitting now, she says, is that Vogue made her an offer she couldn’t refuse: the September cover. “What that means for a woman of color and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, ‘No, I’m not going to be on the biggest issue of the year.'”
Basically, the only difference between her Vogue feature and let’s say, a People feature is the Mario Testino shot pictorial. Velvet-ish and Cleopatr-ish, Halle Berry’s Vogue September looks just like another tabloid-like story meant to replace all those other tabloids stories which have been written and published before. So Hollywood. So Wintour. (Halle’s Vogue interview can be read here)
