While this is one of the most amazing news this week (I think it tops Viola Davis and Esperanza Spalding wearing natural hair while attending the 2012 Oscars Ceremony), Joan Smalls’ Vogue Italia March 2012 is pretty strange.
Like they say: Over the top. Steven Meisel photographed a handful of gorgeous models (all white but Joan) for a special issue of Vogue Italia, dealing with the excess of all things style and fashion. And more. Not much has been posted online yet, however, I took out two images from the animated gifs which were made available. Now remember – it’s all about excess. All in all, I’m happy Joan landed this cover. As always, congrats to Franca Sozzani’s Vogue Italy for their courage and fashion initiative!
