It seems that the Twitter trend is spreading to the world of glossy fashion magazines. Italian Vogue have never been afraid to take risks with their content and covers, as their issue featuring only black models this summer proved. For December they’re producing an issue inspired by Twitter and Twitpic.
The cover features Gisele, Lara Stone, Christy Turlington, Kasia Struss and Natalia Vodianova in photos they took themselves. Glimpses of the editorial inside show a Twitpic-style spread, shot by Stephen Meisel and called MeiselPic, with models casually posing and having fun in what will probably turn out to be really expensive clothes.
Considering a lot of models are already avid Twitterers – Jessica Stam and Chanel Iman regularly update theirs – is Vogue Italia ridiculing their tendency to reveal too much, or just jumping on the Twitter bandwagon?
We’re not sure, but one thing it made us all-too-aware of is how, sadly, we’re never going to look as good as these models in our own uploaded photos. Sigh.
