All that Buzz….. Vogue India!
When it comes to Vogue, it;s to me the top magazine to report fashion, show trends and introduce you to unique editorials, as well as show you some fashionable cultural gems. Vogue in general is quick, and recognisable not only in the US, Europe or Australia. It is a true Icon in Japan, India, Brazil, etc….
As much as I find Kendall Jenner a true beauty and a nice looking model but with great connections not to have started like all super models from the scratch, she found her way to the top and does a great job. I also understand it;s hard to say no to Vogue!
But it was not her place to be on the 10th Vogue India Cover. Do not get me wrong the images are amazing. Stunning beauty shoot by the fantastic Mario Testino, but morally just wrong!
Well if it;s an Indian Affair, how about an Indian Model on it or a Bollywood actress framed on the cover, Maybe not with the cliche Aishwarya Rai but go with an Indian woman to represent India. It;s a milestone to survive a magazine 10 years in this fast digital world of fashion so be proud and show a true Indian Beauty not a “white ” western beauty!
Why not put on the cover true Indian fashion icons and I am not talking about the Bollywood industry that is over flowing with beautiful actresses, put Neelam Gill or Pooja Mor , Ujjwala Raut, Monikangana Dutta, Lakshmi Menon, etc… all great international models with great reputation and Indian Roots.
How do we explain a little girl in India that dreams about becoming a model or needs a role model from her own country that Kendall Jenner is the way to go?
How do we tell her you need to be white to make it?
At least the location of the photo shoot is in India, gorgeous Jaipur! And since we talk about Indian Fashion, at least she could have put something traditional Indian on her at least for the cover, to show that she embraces the culture and the traditional ways.
Again, please do not comment that I do not like Kendall , its BS. She is a young naive girl that gets a heads start in life due to her name and family, But after that she tries to prove herself to stand strong in an industry that can shakes you up an can toss you into the garbage bin in a minute. She has all the right attributes to be a model, tall , young, sexy, somehow unique, savvy a money maker and in the right place at the right time.
Vogue India, #shame! I was expecting more! But I guess when you have to F UP, you do it with the best!
