Is VOGUE Opting For Topless Covers To Sell More Copies?

VOGUE-Netherlandsedita-vilkeviciute-and-anja-rubik-topless-in-vogue-paris-oct-2013-01-cr1380034565795-435x580The fashion glossy – Vogue has two of its editions – The Dutch and the French graced with topless models on the cover for the October 2013 issue.  Vogue Netherlands got on the act with a photo spread featuring model Ymre Stiekema, 21, dressed in 17th century garments and posing in ways meant to evoke portraits by the Dutch painter Jan Vermeer. In the image that’s getting the most attention, Stiekema is half-undressed, breastfeeding a baby.

But Angelina Jolie’s personal breastfeeding snaps, which covered W magazine back in 2008, were met with a much more peaceful reception.

Isn’t it just a stunt to sell more copies? Waaddddyyaaa say???

    In today’s age who’ll be buying a magazine to see pictures of boobs, internet is full of them, of all colours and shapes 😉

    It isn’t a publicity stunt, it’s expressing their creativity as they know best. to many, its art and to many it’s vulgar. the interpretation lies open from viewer to viewer.
    they dont have to do anything for publicity because it’s at the end of the day it’s Vogue and it has a name that needs no publicity resorting to nudity.

    i feel like perhaps, you, the author, shouldn’t be too quick to judge everything. Well that’s like asking dogs not to bark or asaram not to molest. but not everything doesn’t necessarily have an ulterior motive. Be slightly more open minded and open to different forms of expression of creativity, careers and life choices.

    Cheers x

    Davehruv,
    Thank you for your point-of-view.
    Respect it!
    Sorry if you felt that I (the author) am beyond reasoning and your suggesting me to be more open-minded is almost like ‘asking Asaram not to molest’.
    Hope I won’t disappoint you in future with my narrow-minded perspective and skewed judgement influenced by ‘ulterior motive’.
