David Chang in Vogue

The blogosphere of foodies and fashionistas merge in the upcoming September issue of Vogue, which includes the above spread featuring David Chang, the genius, foul-mouthed lord of the Momofuku restaurant empire who was once quoted saying, “I don’t want shithead bankers and the friends of dickhead traders.”

I can see that Vogue is making a “juxtaposition,” but in a magazine notorious for being bereft of Asian faces, especially guys, I agree with this Eater commenter who wrote, “The people at Vogue could have at least given Chang some couture to wear. He looks like the help in this photo.” I think he’s earned it at this point.
