Yes! Teen Vogue’s ‘New Faces’ Cover Features 3 Women of Color (Forum Buzz)

We’re forever complaining when magazines fail to deliver in terms of diverse cover stars. Teen Vogue undoubtedly provides us with some much-needed diversity on the newsstand this month, serving up a trio of the fashion industry’s hottest new models of color. Aya Jones, Imaan Hammam and Lineisy Montero are each handed their own cover for the momentous occasion and pose together on the fourth (pictured below). Photographed by Daniel Jackson, the girls wear double denim, but who’s looking at the clothes when their fresh faces command our attention?

Our forum members couldn’t be more thankful. “Quite exceptional! I’m digging the casting and having a cover for each girl brings me to tears,” announced Aedlacir.

“Epic casting! Three of the best girls right now,” Style Savvy replied.

Also full of praise was Riseup: “Boom!!! Hands down the best cover of the year (sorry Caitlyn Jenner), ICONIC on every single level!!!”

Sharing the same sentiments was LabelWhore4, hyperventilating, “I’m crying right now! Amy Astley consistently supports young (especially black) models by putting them on the cover. This is so beautiful and I’m happy for all three of them. They deserve this and more!”

Wolkfolk showed enthusiasm too, adding, “I usually don’t care about Teen Vogue but this is really amazing and so unexpected which makes it even better. I was super excited when I read the title but the covers are even better than I thought. All covers are fantastic but the group one is my favorite. I love how they kept their individuality without outshining each other. Great styling too!”

“Sensational, these three are perfect. Love all the covers!” exclaimed TeeVanity.
