Vogue Italia UPS the ANTE

Just last year, Vogue Italia dared the status quo, the norm in the fashion industry by having an ALL Black Issue. It was one of the highest selling  issue in the history of VOGUE and fashion. Now, Italian Vogue editor, Franca Sozzani has pushed the envelope once more by publishing another bold Vogue Italia issue , this time featuring Plus size models. What?!!!

  Plus models : Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine, and Robyn Lawley in the June 1001 Vogue Italia.

According to editor from the land of pure confidence, Franca Sozzani she wanted to give a voice to the " normal prototype of beauty " as she explained to NY Times in a candid interview. Whoa!!!! Yes, Miss Sozzani, we hear you loud and clear, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. And trust that many young women who starve themselves to death to be accepted as " beautiful " , are grateful for this issue.

Every once in a while a miracle happens in fashion and this one of them. enjoy.
