Continuing their dedication to promoting diversity in the fashion world Vogue Italia has released a follow up to July 2008’s Black Issue using the same theme except with a small twist, black Barbie dolls. The issue pays homage to black cultures and beauty as well as black Barbie’s cultural impact. This year Barbie will release dolls with a more afro centric looking featuring wider noses and fuller lips. Franca Sozzani continues to use her creativity as Editor-In-Chief to push positive messages in the industry. The magazine is currently available at retailers and online.
