Vogue's March 2017 cover has landed, entitled "Modern American Woman", featuring an eclectic group of models: Adwoa Aboah, Liu Wen, Ashley Graham, Vittoria Ceretti, Imaan Hammam, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
Vogue spoke about the editorial stating "each of these cover girls proudly inhabits her own particular gorgeousness in her own particular way. Together they represent a seismic social shift: The new beauty norm is no norm. And fashion, the industry that-yes-has historically done much to enforce beauty codes, is joining the movement".
Adding "In a climate of immigration bans and building walls, the biggest names in 2017 make the case that there isn't just one type of American girl- nor has there ever been".
However, some people aren't happy with the cover, accusing Vogue of photoshopping Gigi's arm to cover Ashley's waist, and making Ashley pose to cover her thigh.
Ashely has taken to Instagram to banish these rumours stating "I chose to pose like that..no one told me to do anything".
The cover isn't fully inclusive, nor is it leaping that far from beauty standards the industry continually enforces, but it is progress. Calling it a "beauty revolution" may be a little farfetched, but it's a step in the right direction. Baby steps people, baby steps.
