ARCHIVE » TOCCARA JONES FOR VOGUE ITALIA
by Jeremy Danté
at the time these photos were published for the groundbreaking, all black italian vogue, this blog had not been created. i had these images since the issue debuted & wanted to share with those who were not able to experience some of what that historical issue had brought to life. some of you may remember toccarra jones from reality tv show, ‘america’s next top model’. though jones does not hold the title of ‘america’s next top model’, she is still a working model & has appeared on countless covers & was shot here for vogue italia by steven meisel. not too bad for a contestant that didnt land in the top three of the reality show that introduced her to the world. toccorra is represented by wilhelmina model managment. these pictures are fly as hell, how could i not post them here? i fuxwithis editorial, for real. i was able to find the complete editorial spread in picture perfect clarity. i love this editorial & wanted to post for you in the best quality available. do enjoy. no denying she killed this shoot. toccara became the first plus sized model to appear in the pages of italian vogue, in history. raising the bar & opening doors for other full figured women to follow.
