Halle Berry’s Vogue September 2010

  • Pin it

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)

There is no denying Halle’s beauty but her relevance to fashion is naught! Your right this is just tabloid speak with better pictures.
The big deal about a september cover is a farce – it is just a monthly magazine not a cure for cancer! Vogue is full of its own importance & we all buy into it. Sheesh!
If Anna Wintour had her finger on the pulse then Lara Stone or Freya Beha Erichsen should have been on the cover – IMO.

Kpriss, I feel I’ve to rephrase you: so American? Or the common thing these days? Do we live in a tabloid world.?
I love Halle’s cover and the cover shoot too. If I had the right features I would take a hair cut like this and never changed it until I die. Since I laid eyes on Louise Brooks, saw a few films of her when TV was not only ‘consumption’ but paid attention to film quality and history, I wanted Louise’s hair. Which I had as a child and these photos are hilarious.
Back to Halle and this Vogue cover. As usual I hate the lettering (right sp. grammar?) but the woman, although not a model, is a pearl for a great cover. I hardly say that about a celebrity. This time I feel different.

Keiko, it’s not only Wintour’s fault. If these artists would just stick to their craft they would deny to show themselves off as fashion ehhh……models, designers etc. It’s here to stay for some time I’m afraid. It’s a closed deal: artists and fashion, fashion and artists. I begin to get used to it I believe?

And one day we’re all in awe about let’s say Marion Cottillard for Dior and other fashion shoots and the other day we’re ‘shocked’ by Halle this time? Whatever……and this Vogue is gonna be sold. Oh yeah….

Well I will say this BRAVA and HUZZAH for Vogue putting a black woman on the September issue cover! : )
This would never have happened years ago. And I love the hair style that Halle is wearing on this cover.
The September issue is the one that I usually always get so I will be getting this one for the historical ness of it, but in saying that they could have used Chanel Iman, Alek Wek or Jourdan Dunn for they are wonderful models and are also beautiful black women.

I think she looks gorgeous..stunning.
Besides, la Wintour after 2 decades in the job wouldnt commit an “error” in a business of hundred of millions of dollars.
