The 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.
Sure, TIME‘s infamous breastfeeding cover sparked debate last year about extending the practice and added fuel to the “mommy wars” fire. But Angelina Jolie’s personal breastfeeding snaps, which covered W magazine back in 2008, were met with a much more peaceful reception.
Not only Vogue Netherlands went for a cover baring boobs, the Vogue Paris too joined in the topless adventure with models Edita Vilkeviciute and her supermodel friend Anja Rubik showing off their model funbags on the pages of the glossy. Isn’t it just a stunt to sell more copies? Waaddddyyaaa say???
