Anna vs. Carine, Black Issue vs. Gwenyth

"I think Carine would win because Anna wouldn't be able to see properly from behind her massive dark glasses."
-Peaches Gedolf on which Vogue editor would win the catfight

So, the Black Issue is a hit seller and Gwenyth's US Vogue issue was a huge flop.
And advertiser's think black models aren't good for sales, but ad sales for the Black Issue went up.

I promise I don't hate US Vogue or Anna, even if it looks like I do

They really just could not recognize an untapped market. Shame on U.S. Vogue.

That, and perhaps some bias, against black models?
After all, they're barely shown in the magazines. How would they know they don't sell, if they hardly let any of them work?

Carine beats Anna, but they both are still fabulous!

Carine beats anna ant day of the week. American Vogue is very boring. I only buy a copy when a model is on the cover.
