But this is not the only challenge that you can find on the network. Elizabeth II is dressed in a dress with cats, wolves and Sex Pistols. On April 5, Elizabeth II addressed the nation with a speech on the fight against coronavirus. The Queen of Great Britain wore a green dress – a symbol of hope. Canadian illustrator and comic book author Peter Chiykowsky, the author of the @rockpapercynic Instagram account, took the monarch’s outfit as a chromakey and suggested his options. Here’s what happened:
Today it is also worth mentioning the news about the new cover of Vogue Italy. So, the April issue of the glossy magazine will be released with a completely white cover. This is the publisher’s response to the situation in the country and the global coronavirus pandemic.
“In its long history stretching back over a hundred years, Vogue has come through wars, crises, acts of terrorism. Its noblest tradition is never to look the other way.
Just under two weeks ago, we were about to print an issue that we had been planning for some time, and which also involved L’Uomo Vogue in a twin project.
But to speak of anything else – while people are dying, doctors and nurses are risking their lives and the world is changing forever – is not the DNA of Vogue Italia. Accordingly, we shelved our project and started from scratch.
The decision to print a completely white cover for the first time in our history is not because there was any lack of images – quite the opposite. We chose it because white signifies many things at the same time”.
Vogue Italia added that white means a lot of things at the same time.
“White is first of all respect.
White is rebirth, the light after darkness, the sum of all colours.
White is the colour of the uniforms worn by those who put their own lives on the line to save ours.
It represents space and time to think, as well as to stay silent.
White is for those who are filling this empty time and space with ideas, thoughts, stories, lines of verse, music and care for others.
White recalls when, after the crisis of 1929, this immaculate colour was adopted for clothes as an expression of purity in the present, and of hope in the future.
Above all: white is not surrender, but a blank sheet waiting to be written, the title page of a new story that is about to begin.”
