It’s finally here! And the forums were right — the long overdue model cover for U.S. Vogue has actually happened. Not surprisingly, it features Vogue favorites and uber-models Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss.
Are we excited? Of course we are!
“Hell f***ing yes! So thrilled to see models on the cover of Vogue, was not expecting that at all. And especially happy to see Joan on the cover, I think she’s just wonderful,” exclaimed YoninahAliza.
“I’m so shocked! Hopefully this sells like hotcakes so that Anna will see that models on covers CAN move magazines. I like the breezy and fresh feel of the cover, but I think just Joan and Karlie would have worked much better,” analyzed orchidee.
And LastNight shared: “Perfect!!! Oh my goodness I am so unbelievably happy. These three girls were the most likely out of the current crop of models to be on the very front if US Vogue were to do a model cover and here they are! It looks lovely from that photo and I’m assuming there will be more girls on the fold out. It makes great sense to have a model cover for US Vogue at this time, it feels right. Could not be happier and so glad that all the speculation in the Cover Rumor Thread didn’t amount to nothing.”
Is this the best cover image of the season? Not really, but the fact that U.S. Vogue has finally put young, fresh models on its cover again is reason enough to be deliriously happy about this. Hallelujah!
