Serena Williams Rocks The June 2012 Cover of VOGUE

 

Now THIS is an accomplishment to boast about.  YBF chick Serena Williams landed the June 2012 cover of American VOGUE as the iconic magazine focuses on TEAM USA & top American Olympic hopefuls.  Check the cover pic inside, plus Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade's pic in the mag's Olympic issue as well...

With the Summer Olympics going down in London this July, the magazine world is taking notice of the fittest bodies around.  Namely, for their cover, Serena Williams, soccer star Hope Solo & swimmer Ryan Lochte.

In the Annie Leibovitz-shot feature, the Olympic hopefuls pose in their swimsuits and fashionable sports gear while showing off their toned and rock hard bods.  It's a good look for the fashion designer/nail tech/top tennis player in the world.

 

 

BONUS: Dwyane Wade is also featured in the issue alongside model and ballet dancer Karlie Kloss for a spread where some of the top 2012 Olympians are featured.  Dwyane spoke to VOGUE about his upcoming 3rd Olympics:

The first time Dwyane Wade went to the Olympics, in 2004, he was really still in awe of his heroes. Having grown up on the South Side of Chicago (where he is at work building a community center), he idolized guys like Michael Jordan, whom Wade, 30, patterned himself after in a lot of ways. “We grew up watching the Dream Team, and we thought it was an honor to be on the team,” he says of his fellow rookie Olympians, players like LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. He was shocked when, in Athens, the all-stars lost to Puerto Rico, Lithuania, and then to Argentina in the semi-finals—a golden flop, 89–81. “We had to wait four years to get back and hush everybody up and redeem ourselves.”

He flew past injuries—you don’t make mind-blowing layups without risking at least your hamstring—to lead the so-called Redeem Team in 2008. He scored big when it mattered, especially in the difficult final game against Spain. When Kobe Bryant and Le­Bron ran into foul trouble early and were benched four minutes into the game, Wade surged ahead, coming up with three three-pointers and reigniting the team’s fight for the gold. Is he surprised to be up for 2012 in London? “I thought Beijing would be my last one, but here I am!”

Thank goodness for Photoshop.

Thank goodness for Photoshop. She is a hell of an athlete but she is shaped like a man. She wears horrible weaves that makes her seem even more like a man that is trying to be a woman. Her big booty saves her from all suspicion. There are rap lyrics "ass like Serena". I wish her the best career wise but if it were not for Photoshop I doubt she would get covers.

Huh? I'm really confused

Huh? I'm really confused about these comments because I actually believe Serena looks great. Finally Vogue got a dark skin woman with a broad nose and big lips right! Also for all of you all saying that Serena is photoshopped to look smaller... umm she is standing next to two Olympic athletes, one being an Olympic MALE. If you look at Hope, you can tell she has broader shoulders than most women. Even her neck looks on the large size. Even her hands! Just google Hope and you can tell she has that same "athletic figure" about her. Hope is just taller so she "slims out" more. Hope looks great but I'm only saying that maybe Serena isn't "all that big" when she is standing next to other dedicated athletes... duh! When she is standing next to women who are out of shape, are not athletes, and have no muscle tone of course she is "huge". Serena looks gorgeous!

And quite frankly some of you

And quite frankly some of you all may be mentally enslaved. I'm shocked that vogue has released a cover where ::gasp:: the Black women looks more feminine than the White woman if we go by common patterns. Black women are often portrayed as fat (unhealthy) and white woman are portrayed as skinny (healthy) when side by side. And if that's not the case then Black women are portrayed as having huge muscles as a way of looking more masculine, and the white woman comes off as more frail and "smooth". Serena's muscles are not really displayed but Hope's are. And there's no way Serena can be portrayed as fat but instead her legs looks "smooth". So it's no wonder some of you all can't believe this cover where the Black woman looks good and "the most feminine."

Why are women of color always

Why are women of color always off to the right almost off the page. I seriously have problems with that. See other magazines if you don't believe me.

Its a marketing strategy.

Its a marketing strategy. Your eye goes from left to right, so the more “eye catching” product/person is on the left side. Web pages use the “F” strategy where information is given left to right, then addition information is given on from the top left corner to the bottom left corner.

here they go again with the

here they go again with the king kong theory. black man snags white "trophy" girl, not a black women, to get to the top. subliminal messaging at its finest. first lebron and now him. wake the f*&^ up and stop chalking stuff up to just an "ad". this goes all over the world in people's minds. i guess the white woman is the real basketball "wife"...

@ anon 3:46 pm Will you

@ anon 3:46 pm Will you stop. That is not the point. Vogue is a FASHION magazine and they always do a sports THEME. You're bringing all these outside things to a photo. I think the D-Wade shot is beautiful and I did not read all of what you're implying. My issue with the Lebron photo was the quality of the photo they used of Lebron. He looked BAD..I think they could have found a better shot especially for the cover. The Girl in the Wade shot is just there she is not seen as a "trophy"....where are you getting all of that????? The model is a PROP not a PRIZE to be won. OMG. This comment says more about you than it does about VOGUE.

After all these years these

After all these years these top magazines just struggle with accepting females of color the way they are, if they're not airbrushing the bodies they're lightening their complexion. Congrats on making the cover Serena but even Stevie could see they went overboard with the photoshopping.

I love Serena but I don't

I love Serena but I don't love this cover and I have no problem saying it. This cover looks terrible. If it were HOT like Beyonce or Rihanna's Vogue cover I would say it. But this cover is as bad as the Adele and the Lebron James cover when they did him WRONG not too long ago. Vogue has a history of getting things WRONG and this is a prime example of it.
