Vogue magazine landed in a little hot water recently when actress Thandie Newton called them out on a very obvious fact. Newton is currently the face of Louis Vuitton’s “Double Exposure” campaign but feels very slighted that she has not been asked to pose for the high-fashion magazine’s most coveted cover.

In an interview with Pride Magazine , Newton said,

“Don’t get me started on black people being on the cover of 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,” she explained.

“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?”

The British-born and based actress feels that the United States edition of Vogue sets the standard of what is accepted and expected when it comes to diversity for other top publications domestically and around the world.

Naomi Campbell, Halle Berry, First lady Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson are just some of the few talented, beautiful and accomplished black women featured on Vogue‘s cover.

Vogue certainly doesn’t include enough black women on their covers and Newton would be a great addition to the Vogue cover archives. As a matter of fact, here are four additional beautiful and talented black women who deserve to land this spot.

Thandie Newton

An obvious choice … Newton is famous for her roles in the movies Beloved, Mission Impossible 2 and For Colored Girls. Not only is the British-born actress gorgeous, she’s already covered two widely popular fashion magazine multiple times … come on Vogue!

Chanel Iman

One of the youngest, most successful, and well-known black super models … Chanel Iman has been overlooked too many times for this cover. Although she’s still competing with the big dogs, at 20 years old, she’s accomplished more than most models today. A young positive role model for young women to look up to?  Sounds like a pretty good cover story for Vogue to snatch up.

Nicki Minaj

With all the latest fashion week talk between Nicki Minaj rubbing shoulders with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, it’ll be any day now that Minaj grabs the coveted Vogue cover. The Harajuku Barbie has already proven she’s got the stuff on the covers of Cosmopolitan, Glamour, ELLE, King and W magazine.

Zoe Saldana

With her groundbreaking roles in films like Avatar and Colombiana, it’s about time a strong black woman land the Vogue cover. Sandana has made an amazing comeback and impressed us all with her acting and action skills. Vogue would definitely be able to draw in readers with her likeable personality and charming smile.

Kerry Washington

Statuesque actress Kerry Washington has placed at the top of best dressed fashion lists consistently. Her silver sequined mini dress worn at the Espy Awards and that jaw-dropping red sequined gown worn to the Emmys prove she’s attuned with fashion and what looks best on her figure. We can’t forget those pouty lips, doe eyes, and seductive roles she’s so great at playing either.

 

Who do you think is deserving of being on the coveted cover of Vogue?

    It’s always fun to have things in your favorite color, but when it comes to dresses, it’s not quite that simple. You should take into account your skin tone; you don’t want a color which is not compatible. Also, a hue that accents your eye color may be one way to really stand out; this technique generally works best if you have blue or green eyes.
