The Italian Job

Vogue Italia 50th Anniversary coverIt seems anything Vogue US can do, Vogue Italia can do… And better. To celebrate Vogue Italia’s 50th anniversary, the publication has beaten its American sister at its own game by producing a foldout cover that features 50 of the top models in the industry shot by Steven Meisel. Vogue US only featured 9 models.

These are the women that have helped to shape the industry and paved the way for the ‘instagirls’. Besides, you just don’t mess with Naomi Campbell…
