Sounds crazy right? Well it’s true….kind of. Famed photographer Steven Meisel (who photographed Madonna for her book SEX) has shot an entire issue of Vogue Italia with black models! In the words of Beyonce, that is AMAZING!

So far, there is no word on the models that will be featured or when the issue will hit the stands, but you better believe I’ll have my hands on a copy as fast as people probably exited the church Foxy Brown prayed in this week in fear they would catch a lightening bolt meant for her, or she would slap them for accidentally drinking her communion or something.

I’m not the only one hoping to see Jourdan Dunn or Chanel Iman featured. I’m just hoping the issue will not bring as much controversy as the whole Lebron James cover. You already know how I feel about Vogue so I’m hoping Vogue Italia shows Vogue how it’s done!
