Actress Halle Berry turned 44 this past Saturday. She will also cover the supposedly very important September Vogue. Apparently Halle is only the second Black woman ever to cover the famed September issue of Vogue. Naomi Campbell was the first, September 1989. Been a while hasn't it.
I have given up on Vogue long ago. So it really means nothing to me that Vogue is being covered by a Black woman next month. I won't be buying that issue just as I won't be buying any other issue of Vogue. Maybe that will change if Vogue and the fashion industry it covers ever decide to become truly diverse and feature Black and other women of color routinely.
Anyway, happy birthday Halle.
