Superstorm Sandy shook New York City to the very core. The damages total more than $63 billion dollars and countless lives were taken. More would have suffered if not for the bravery of the first responders to the disaster. Vogue decided to dedicate a piece to the heroes, appropriately titled “Storm Troupers,” in their February issue.

The piece is aimed to commemorate those from six different departments including the New York City Coast Guard, special divisions of the NYPD, the Bellevue Hospital and the National Guard’s 69th Infantry. The photographs, by famous photographer Anne Leibovitz, display models along side of the valiant men and women.

I applaud Vogue for this piece. Vogue was involved in raising funds for Sandy victims and I admire how they incorporate fashion into stories like this. It was done with a very classy style when things could have easily been depicted in an offending way. I would expect nothing less with Anne Leibovitv’s work.

I think the models do not take away from the glory of the heroes being highlighted in the piece, in some photographs the models, like superstars Chanel Iman and Karlie Kloss, are barely visable and the people are seen carrying on with their work.

What do you think about the idea of “Storm Troupers?” Will you pick up Vogue’s February issue?
