Vogue tried to pay tribute with a Hurricane Sandy photo shoot. The fashion magazine featured the cities greatest hit by the storm for their Feb. 2013 issue. Today.com reported on Jan. 17 that the photo shoot caused a lot of controversy.
One photo includes supermodels walking the streets affected by Hurricane Sandy. They have their arms around a group of firefighters. The tall and thin models wear strappy red tank dresses with matching red chunky shoes.
In another photo, three models pose on a U.S. Coast Guard boat. They wear long white dresses. Their hair and dresses flap along the sea breeze.
Annie Leibovitz was the photographer behind this controversial photo shoot. She's no stranger to controversy. She had Disney star Miley Cyrus pose on the cover of Vogue wearing just a sheet when she was just 14-years-old.
Some critics found the photo shoot offensive. It left a bad taste in some New Yorker's mouths. A reporter from New York magazine called the photo spread "awful."
The Vogue Hurricane Sandy photo shoot left mixed reviews on the Facebook page. One wrote that it was "trying too hard," while another exclaimed she "loved it." Do you think this fashion magazine took it too far?
