After Interview Magazine's issue last year which caused quite the stir with Daria Werbowy posing among a group of African models, many wrote that the editorial showed Daria as a star among "random" models who were just accessories, and one got the feeling that there were racist undertones. Refinery29 wrote at the time something that is very true: "Fashion is at its core a political and social product—how power relationships are set up in editorials can speak volumes." (Tip! Watch this video clip with Nick Knight at ShowStudio.com about "political fashion.")
I can see how the people behind Vogue Australia might have been thinking that they were on this beautiful continent, where they had their photographer Max Doyle on location and their fashion editor acting as a stylist, and when they had traveled so far why don't do two photo-shoots, but still they could have chosen another model other than their favorite Katie Fogarty.
For my Swedish readers, two articles you must check: here1 and this one.
