Vogue in China: no Gisele, no September launch?

vogue_logo.jpgAccording to industry gossip, Vogue is getting vague again about the launch of their Chinese edition. According to two different sources:

- The scheduled photo shoot of Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen for the Chinese Vogue's launch issue cover has been cancelled for unknown reasons.

- Problems with Vogue's Chinese publication license — specifically their application to change the Chinese name on the license — may also delay the launch, most recently scheduled for September this year.
