Vogue magazine uses hurricane Sandy destruction to make big bucks with fashion campaign.
The other day the Brazilian supermodel Nana Gouvea was slammed and ridiculed in epic proportions, by posing for moronic photos amid the aftermath scenario of Sandy superstorm.

Well, it seems that her idiotic idea was not only copied by the powerful Vogue magazine, but also "improved" with more glamor and less destruction, to promote a new campaign for NY fashion designers

In one corner of the striking image, ConEd employees who worked feverishly in the wake of Hurricane Sandy to restore power to a disaster-slammed New York. In the other: leggy supermodel Karlie Kloss posing in a glamorous Oscar de la Renta couture gown.

Wait, what? It's a real photo spread called "Storm Troupers" gracing the posh pages of February's Vogue and lensed by none other than Annie Leibovitz.

The shoot, of course, was intended as tribute to Sandy's first responders -- as Vogue's website explains: "When Hurricane Sandy hit, the city’s bravest and brightest punched back. With the area now on the mend, we paid these stalwart souls a visit, dressed up in the best of the New York collections. Call them New York’s other finest." That's surely a noble effort.

But that hasn't quelled outrage from commenters saying that Vogue's spread crosses the line in nestling $3,000 gowns amidst some of Sandy's most hard-hit neighborhoods, giving them the effect of bizarre ornaments.

Vogue photoshot a couple of living-dead like models with first-response teams in sequences that are not less bizarre, than Nana's pictures. Just more professional, glamorized and clever in the excuse to make it so.

Bottom line is, Americans apparently no longer think it's THAT outrageous, when it's done of their way.

Just so you know, of no way I'm defending Nana Gouvea because she's Brazilian. I for one would certainly hit her with a balloon full of urine, if I saw her posing anywhere near my house, in those conditions.
But how EXACTLY what the Vogue magazine did, with the authorization of local authorities and the US military, is in any way different from what she did???
