Vogue Brings A New Sophistication To Poverty, Using Glamorous Children Props

When tragedy hits New York City, the most financially and culturally diverse 300 square miles in the country, we are all the same. But in the recovery processes, our differences are more pronounced than ever.

Look no further than Vogue’s controversial Superstorm Sandy-themed fashion spread in this month’s issue for proof. “Storm Troupers,” a photo shoot by famously exorbitant photographer Annie Leibovitz, features supermodels dressed in couture gowns “celebrating” the heroes of the storm that knocked the whole of New York City temporarily on it’s behind, and left portions of the outer-boroughs permanently in crisis. Salon’s Daniel D’Addario calls Vogue’s decision to combine luxury fashions with a crisis that’s largely become an issue of poverty “clueless.

Annie Leibovitz decides children props do work.
