So as I was at the checkout at the supermarket, I glanced over at the magazines, and saw a photo of a young woman who looked like she had undergone extensive chemo. She was gaunt, frail and looked like she could barely stand up, as she braced herself against the wall. And upon closer observation I was a bit startled that I was in fact looking at the latest cover of Vogue Magazine…then I thought, maybe they are featuring this poor emanciated girl to raise awareness for the disease she was obviously suffering from. But, silly me. It was just a typical cover of the oldest fashion magazine in publication.
So I was curious and found a bit of a history on VOGUE covers. You would think there would be a profound change but really from its inception, VOGUE was clearly not interested in real change. And of course it’s simply a reflection of the mass consciousness. Nothing less. Nothing more.
