Vogue Sends Karlie, Chanel, & Arizona To The Front Lines Of Sandy

At first glance, seeing Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, and Arizona Muse next to Hurricane Sandy first responders feels a bit...incongruous, like the Vogue shoot is trying to glam up the crucial, hard-working, and decidedly unglamorous heroes. But as the Annie Leibowitz-shot spread continues, with the three atop a Coast Guard boat, or coddling babies at the Bellevue Neo-Natal Unit, it is clear the spread is less about sugar-coating tragedy, and more about New York fashion uniting to support the cause.

Sure, Karlie Kloss in a power station wearing an incredible, voluminous, Oscar De La Renta duchesse-satin gown may direct attention away from the peril of the storm, but to us, this feels more like a timely tribute, and less of a Vogue-ification of a national tragedy. Besides, it's a lot more appropriate than hunting for "a lovely, slender female paratrooper." Head to Vogue to see all the girls (including Arizona Muse) and the emergency workers. (Vogue)
