Franca Sozzani, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, is coming under fire for the depiction of violence against women in the mag's April issue. Of the spread, entitled "Horror Movie," Sozzani told The Independent: "This is really a horror show, what we are looking at and what we see every day in every newspaper around the world is how fragile the woman still is today, and how she can be attacked, can be abused, can be killed." This isn't the first eyebrow-raising editorial under Sozzani's direction; you may recall her oil spill-inspired spread, her use of "slave earrings", and her take on cosmetic surgery (a 2005 story called “Makeover Madness”). Such controversial topics are what we've come to expect from Sozzani. Her approach isn't that of a traditional editor. Not only does she "tackle the kind of major global issues – racial prejudice, violence against women, environmentalism, drug rehabilitation – through the pages of a fashion magazine," she says she does not bow down to designers and industry insiders. She doesn't necessarily care about fashion people, holding: "It's not that I only do the magazine thinking about them – this person, that person, that designer. No, I think about not what could make the magazine different, but what could make a good issue, that people will remember."
