Thandie Newton slams Vogue

BAFFLED: Actress Thandie Newton questions the reluctance to feature black women on the cover of Vogue

BRITISH beauty, Thandie Newton has slammed Vogue magazine for the lack of black women on its covers.

Newton, who has a Zimabawean mother and a British father, recently told Pride magazine that she doesn't understand why style bible Vogue doesn't use a wider range of models on its cover.

"Don't get me started on black people being on the cover on big magazines. It's so preposterous," she said.

"I mean, I've been on the cover of Harper's Bazaar four times; I've been on the cover of InStyle four times, but Vogue, not once," she added.

She told Pride that people have often approached her and asked if she wouldn't like to be on the cover of Vogue.

"They [Vogue] don't feel the need to represent because it doesn't make any sense to them. It's just baffling to me, but as usual America will dictate the ways things go and a magazine like Vogue will just follow America," she said.
