"We Are the World" à la Vogue

Halle Berry covers Vogue!
I'm here in Las Vegas for MAGIC (it's hotter than the law allows too!) and it just seems appropriate that I blog about fashion, dontchathink?  The September 2010 issue of (American) Vogue is featuring Brown Girl Halle Berry on the cover and she rocks a bob that is Fierce (notice the capital "F").  Love it.  Love her.  Love, love, love.
What got my attention (of course) is the "We are the World" editorial layout inside.  Supermodels Liu Wen (China), Lais Ribeiro (Brazil), Kasia Struss (Poland), Magdalena Frackowiak (Poland), Jourdan Dunn (United Kingdom), Joan Smalls (Puerto Rico) and Karlie Kloss (United States) all grace Vogue's pages for an "eclectic tribal themed editorial...complete with loads of fur, pattern, print and texture...[for this] fall’s outlandish trends...."  [Quoted text & photos below from Models.com]  Outlandish trends aside, I really enjoy checking out anything that represents a celebration of culture, and this issue is no exception.  The models, all from different parts of the world, look like they were having a blast and even though I still waver about wearing fur and editorial layouts make it so that you can't necessarily make sense of what the models are wearing, I can't help but get lost in the celebration.  Plus, I really like fabric with texture and ethnic prints and the representation of multiculturalism makes me happy.  Any thoughts?
