Italian Vogue painted their entire issue black: devoting their July issue to black models and issues showing up American Vogue who dared ask the question “Is Fashion Racist?” in their July issue, then dedicated a paltry spread to a mere three models—Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn and Arlenis Sosa.

“Mine is not a magazine that can be accused of not using black girls,” editor Franca Sozzani, who has put Naomi Campbell, Liya Kebede and Alek Wek on her covers, told the New York Times.

“Franca doesn’t realize what she’s done for people of color,” Naomi Campbell said. “It reminds me of Yves [Saint Laurent] using all the black models.”
