With a little help from my (white) friends
Now excuse me, but hasn't this been done before? I may be missing something, but why has India Vogue, like China Vogue's first edition felt the need to debut with good little white girl Gemma Ward on their cover? If they really need a western (okay, more Eastern in Gemma's case) vibe in there, why didn't somebody more fresh and exciting get a look in. I feel like I see enough of the "Donaldson, Ward, Stam gang" in US and Brit Vogues.
She may only be 21, but Wardy is getting old in the modelling world. Or perhaps this is just my view, but I like the see the model cycle spin at an exciting pace. Why not Kinga Rajzak or Lara Stone on the cover? Or Diane Moldoven or Suvi Koponen?
This could become quite an interesting discussion, and I know this post is rather politcal, so speak up. Have a rant if you disagree with what I'm saying; perhaps I'm being very naive, or let yourself go if you want to build on what I've said. You may cause me to change my view..
