Vogue Italia features model with 13-inch waist on its cover

The Italian version of Vogue seems to make use of shocking tactics in order to sell.

The September issue of Italian magazine Vogue is dedicated to the Gothic style and it honors Ethel Granger, the woman with the smallest waist in the world: 13 inches.

Granger is known for practicing “tightlacing”. She wore a tight corset around the clock to wind down her waistline.

The magazine put Scottish model Stella Tennant on its cover, with an incredibly tight corset and a whole lot of piercing, as a tribute to Ethel Granger. In the cover picture, Tennant’s waist has been cinched to 13 inches.

The model wears a Prada black gabardine coat and carries a huge nose ring and a lip stud, a pearl reminiscent of Granger’s facial piercing tactics. She also holds a pair of scissors, looking ready to cut.

The mood of the photo is reminiscent of Tim Burton’s films.

This isn’t the first time Vogue creates controversy. Recently, the magazine was forced to apologize for a bad choice of words after writing that on-trend hoop earrings are called “slave” earrings.

“If the name brings to the mind the decorative traditions of the women of color who were brought to the southern United States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom,” the now infamous article read.
