The duo are joined on the cover by a diverse group of models including Ashley Graham, Adwoa Aboah, Liu Wen, Vittoria Ceretti and Imaan Hammam, who are all working to challenge the traditional ideas of beauty.
Here’s what the ladies had to share with the mag:
Kendall on the diversity of her Vogue cover: “This is my second Vogue cover, and to be sharing that not only with one of my best friends, but with all of these amazing women, is very meaningful for me. With all that’s going on in the world, this cover makes such an important statement. It’s like, hey, we’ve got our differences, but those differences are beautiful. Everyone is beautiful.”
Ashley on plus size representation: “Sixty-seven percent of the women in America wear a size 14 or larger. Sixty-seven percent. Maybe you could ignore those consumers before, but now, thanks to social media, they’re making their voices heard. Women are demanding that brands give them what they want. And what they want is to be visible.”
Gigi on being called All-American: “It’s funny to me when people say that I’m this ‘girl next door’ because although I know I can come off that way, from another angle, I’m pretty exotic. I mean, as different as Imaan and I look, we probably share DNA. If I’m ‘all-American,’ what does that even mean? But then again my parents came to this country as poor immigrants. So…maybe I’m pretty damn all-American after all. Not because of how I look but because I truly believe everyone should be equal and free.”
FYI: The cover models are wearing Prada turtlenecks, belts and shorts. Liu is wearing Miu Miu shorts.
