Back in 2007, a rumor surfaced that Anna Wintour had banned Vogue staffers from using the world ‘blog.’ While I think we should all take those rumors with a grain of salt, it is definitely satisfying to see that nine fashion bloggers have been featured in Vogue’s March 2010 issue.
Bryanboy, Mary Tomer, Tommy Ton, Michelle Phan, Yvan Rodic, Todd Selby, Hanneli, Catherine Kallon and Garance Dore have all made it in the fashion world. These nine fashion bloggers, from all corners of the globe, appear in Vogue’s “Logged On” editorial, which focuses on the rise of the fashion blogger and how the industry has had to open up to the blogosphere.
For me, this is yet another reason why Vogue’s March 2010 issue is one of their best in a long time. I can’t help but love the fact that they’re featuring bloggers. What do you think? Is it time for Vogue and other magazines to acknowledge the presence that fashion bloggers have in the industry?
