Thandie Newton Is Upset With Vogue Magazine
Written by Danny P Ocean on November 1, 2011
In a recent interview with Pride magazine, Thandie Newton expressed her anger with how her and other African-American women have been left off the cover.
“Don’t get me started on black people being on the cover on big magazines. It’s so preposterous. I mean, I’ve been on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar four times; I’ve been on the cover of InStyle four times, but Vogue, not once.
“And people say to me, I mean literally, people have said to me, ‘What have you got against Vogue that you don’t want to be on their cover?’ And I just laugh.
“They [Vogue] don’t feel the need to represent because it doesn’t make any sense to them. It’s just baffling to me, but as usual America will dictate the ways things go and a magazine like Vogue will just follow America,” she said. “But it’s like, don’t you want to trail blaze?”
How do you feel She-Moguls? Have African-American women received the short end of the cover stick?
