Franca Sozzani is always ahead of the race. Back in 2008 she created the legendary 'All Black Issue' and has since continued to champion black models and for the latest issue of the magazine, the Vogue Italia editor booked three plus size models.
Sozzani has been criticised in the past with many arguing that the creation of the 'Curvy' Vogue website was merely a gimmick, but perhaps the latest cover shows a long term commitment of the magazine to championing a healthy body image in the industry.
This week The Cut spoke to the editor about how the shoot came about, why Crystal Renn was not included and whether she thinks the cover will have a serious impact.
It's official, design duo Dolce & Gabbana are becoming fledgling movie stars. After a brief appearance in Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore’s movie L’uomo delle stelle (the Starmaker), the pair have more recently took to the big screen once more as extras, this time for fashion film NINE, in which they don Catholic priests costumes.
The film, based on Fellini’s legendary movie "8 1/2", is a musical based on the fashion industry, with Hollywood legends such as Kate Hudson, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard and Sophia Loren all taking part. Adapted from the hit Broadway show, the film premiered at Leicester Square tonight, so it won't be long until we'll be able to give our review on Stefano and Domenico's acting skills. A handy hint - look out for them walking alongside Daniel Day Lewis in the opening scenes, we doubt you'll be disappointed.
