Vogue Italia May 2011 edition

Vogue Italia have another black edition out this time called Black Beauties, I absolutely love it!  It has a complete 70s style trend, floral, wedges platforms, pastel, bright makeup, Afros and sleek hair. I love how Vogue Italia does this.

With Federico Ghezzi as the hairstylist and the images captured by Ellen von Unwerthwhat could go wrong. 

With bright eyes peering out under deliciously curled lashes, cheekbones and jawbones contoured as if chiseled from sharp stone, full noses, and sumptuously lush lips, black women are unquestionably beautiful.

A tribute is due to the woman whose skin tone ranges from alabaster to mahogany to smooth onyx, who can flawlessly carry any makeup look—from gold dusted lids to fuchsia blush to ripe purple and pink glosses. These pages pay homage to the versatile woman whose hair can oscillate from a tightly coiled and coifed Afro, to sleek layers, to a slicked back pixie cut in a matter of minutes. To the divine woman whose enviably full lips, strong, white teeth, and delightful smile have been known to electrify the hearts of many. To the siren whose smooth, velvety skin blocks the sun yet remains supple and unblemished with the passage of time.
Variable and diverse, black beauty escapes simple classification. But no matter the incarnation—whether the color of molasses, café au lait, bronze, tan, or tinged like desert sand—black beauties radiate with poise and multidimensional splendor.

Models: Jeneil Williams, Kelly Moreira, Ubah Hassan, Gaye McDonald, Jae Childs, R’el Dade, Jasmine Tookes, Ariel Meredith, Cici Ali, and Lily Taylor.

Designers: Boss Orange, Maurizio Pecoraro, Alexis Bittar, Patrizia Pepe, Pamela Love, Nina Ricci, Sonia Rykiel, Prada, and Tommy Hilfiger
