The first time I heard about this issue - incredibly excited. The entire project has been extremely successful with the the first printing selling out in 72 hours. Vogue Italia had to reprint 30,000 extra copies for American newsstands, 10,000 for British newsstands and 20,000 for Italian newsstands. Amazing. When I got my copy of the July 2008 Issue of Vogue Italia - A Black Issue, I really wanted the pink cover with Naomi, but that one was already opened and thumbed through. At a 'crossroad' between the high traffic copy or Liya Kebede, I choose my shrink wrapped red copy with Liya. Stilled rocked.
