Model Jordoun Dunn (below left) said of the shoot: "It was such a fun day seeing all those great models under one roof"- it's true! Legendary super models like Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks and Chanel Iman were all part of the Vogue Italia shoot.
One year later, july 2009, to celebrate the anniversary of "the black issue," Vogue Italia printed "the barbie issue." This issue is basically a celebration towards black barbies (in 2009 Barbie celebrated 5o years of life - although the francie barbie was created in 1967-)
the editor in chief of Vogue Italia explained this issue: "Barbie has been an icon for whole generations which is why I really wanted to give a strong sign in step with the times, and dedicate the anniversary issue to Black Barbie"
I am a huge fan of Vogue Italia (I absolutley loved the photoshoots of Rihanna and Dakota Fanning), and I love what they do, I really do. I think it's very inspiring to try to change the fashion world, and especially when it comes to diversity. Are you inspired by Vogue Italia?

Let's talk about Barbie again, and her amazing designer gowns:
In order: Givenchy - Badgley Mishka - Zac Posen - Burberry - Carolina Herrera - Versace - Juicy Couture
In conclusion, not only does Barbie get dressed by over 70 top name fashion designers, and has worn one billion pairs of shoes but she gets to go to fashion week and appear in VOGUE!
(I know, we can't stop talkin' about Jourdan)
"New York Fashion Week with a catwalk show, which saw life-size dolls including Jourdan Dunn take to the runway in special creations from everyone from Vera Wangand Monique Lhuillier to Alexander Wang andRag & Bone. "
