In an interesting and bold move, Italian Vogue's July issue will feature exclusively black models, including the 17-year old Jourdan Dunn (above), on the cover.
The editor, Franca Sozzani, said:   "Because nobody is using black girls. I see so many beautiful girls and they were complaining that they are not used enough."
Ms Sozzani admitted the issue could yet prove to be unpopular among some in Italy, where the xenophobic Northern League is part of the new coalition led by Silvio Berlusconi: "Maybe in our country it is not the best idea. But I don't care. I think it is not my problem if they don't like it – it's their problem."
