— US Vogue & Hurricane Sandy

In a move which has caused many to criticise the international publication, Vogue have run a fashion shoot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz entitled ‘Storm Troupers: Celebrating Hurricane Sandy’s First Responders.’ Featuring top models Karlie Kloss, Kasia Struss, and Chanel Iman wearing clothing from designers like Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang, and Ralph Lauren, the shoot aims to highlight the city’s “bravest and brightest” by including people who were instrumental in the city’s recovery, such as the National Guard’s 69th Infantry. While the shoot has rustled the feathers of some readers, The Guardian point out that Vogue have been helping with the relief effort since day one, helping to raise over $1.7 million USD.
