More Ottobre Woman Pictures





We just received some more pictures to post from the newest, soon-to-be released women's spring/summer '09 issue along with some background information.

The model in the beige dress is Maya - her father is Peruvian. The model in the gray coat is Laura and she is a Finnish Laplander. Also note that the current children's issue features a young boy on the cover who was adopted from Africa by a Finnish family - scroll down a few postings to see him.

Don't you love the international flare of this magazine? What's more....this is a Finnish magazine with an Italian name.
