What's your view? Do you think glamorizing this recent ecological disaster for the sake of "fashion" reduces the tragic event? Is it thought-provoking or tasteless?

It is thought provoking! Now if only people would THINK, and stop using oil.

Janice, I agree. The problem I have with this is that it trivializes the deaths of the 11 men and all wildlife in the oil spill. I'm addressing that as it seems to have been largely forgotten. To all who are affected directly in the Gulf region, my heart aches for you. There's no doubt Vogue did a wonderful job artistically, BRAO, the photo's were striking. I'm just dishearteded when people profit from tragedy. Vouge probably accomplishes their goal of free publicity.

I can't help it, I have to add the photos didn't resemble the Gulf Coast. So what areas did they desecrate? (The Gulf Coast is sand, sand and more sand, with only a very few rip rapped harbor entrances) and waterside marshes. Okay, my rant it over. Thnaks everyone!

Namaste`,
Nikki

I thought this quote summed it up pretty well: 'Who does this make you loathe more, BP or the fashion industry?'
