Thandie Newton - Thandie Newton Slams Vogue Editors For Lack Of Diversity

Actress Thandie Newton has slammed bosses at Vogue magazine for failing to support diversity by shunning black celebrities on the cover.
The Crash star has long graced the cover of a number of popular fashion magazines but Newton admits she has failed to catch the attention of editors at Vogue, insisting the publication is doing a disservice by neglecting to celebrate stars of African heritage.
She tells Britain's Pride magazine, "Don't get me started on black people being on the cover of big magazines. It's so preposterous. I mean, I've been on the cover of Harper's Bazaar four times; I've been on the cover of InStyle four times, but Vogue, not once.
"Literally, people have said to me, 'What have you got against Vogue that you don't want to be on their cover?' And I just laugh.
"They (Vogue) don't feel the need to represent because it doesn't make any sense to them. It's just baffling to me, but, as usual, America will dictate the ways things go and a magazine like Vogue will just follow America, but it's like, 'Don't you want to trail blaze?'"
