Vogue Italia phones it in...literally.

Inspired by the undeniable rise in popularity of social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, Vogue Italia created a cover and editorial spread featuring pics of top models seemingly taken by web/phonecams, including the famous Myspace "mirror" pose, for the December 2009 issue. Under the direction of Steven Meisel, models Christy Turlington, Lara Stone, Natalia Vodianova, Gisele Bundchen and Kasia Struss were asked to photograph themselves for the Twitter devoted issue.

Inside, the fashion photos are all framed by the recognizable and iconic style of photo-sharing sites like TwitPic. The issue also includes short status updates and even displays thumbnail-sized previews of other photos.

Opinion on this cover has been a mixed bag, but I for one LOOOOVE it, as I'm sure most fashion-y social media geeks will. The only way it could possibly be more epic? If US Vogue had done it.

On the other hand, that might be the sign of impending apocalypse, so....maybe this is best.
