Editor in Chief Franca Sozzani had this to day about the issue:
“Barbie has been an icon for whole generations which is why I really wanted to give a strong sign in step with the times, and dedicate [this] issue to Black Barbie."
In other Barbie news, in celebration of Rocawear's 10th Anniversary, Mattel will release a Rocawear Barbie collection featuring four females and one male. All will be dipped in RW thereads from head to toe. This should be interesting.
Remember Kimora's Barbie? I loved it! So I want to see what these will look like....
