GIVEAWAY: ITALIAN VOGUE ALL-BLACK ISSUE

Want your own copy of this historic issue of Vogue Italia? It's still in the plastic wrap and features Sessilee Lopez on the cover.

You will not believe what I went through to get this. Let's just say it included a transglobal search involving friends in Dubai, Hong Kong, London and Milan. Why? Because I was straight arrogant; foolish enough to think that I would just be able to walk up to the newsstand in Grand Central (which I've been hounding since early July) to get one.

Boy, was I wrong. In the end, I was able to get a couple of copies--off the truck (literally)--from a distributor, who let me have them, as long as I threw in a few (many!) extra dollars for him. I'm a good capitalist...demand exceeds supply...he only had five copies left...yadda yadda yadda...But, there you have it.

Now, you can have your own, for free. Shoot me an e-mail at stylechil@gmail.com and tell me where the cover girl--Sessilee Lopez, featured above-- is from (hint: I lived in this city for 5 years). I'll pick a winner at random. Don't forget to include your shipping address and "Vogue Italia Giveaway" in the subject line of e-mail. Deadline is midnight [11:59 p.m.] Monday, July 28. Good luck! Stay tuned for a write up of this groundbreaking issue.

Update: The odds are looking better, another copy just came through from Milan. This one features Jourdan Dunn; sorry, it's not wrapped in plastic, but is otherwise in perfect form. Thanks, Nishant!
