Your local newsstands are about to be a whole lot more diverse this month, with British Vogue leading the way and Vogue Italia following suit with its cover for April 2018. Following a bland and minimalist Remington Williams offering last month, Adut Akech becomes the magazine’s new cover girl (also currently on British Vogue‘s diversity cover), captured by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The Sudanese beauty, who continues to climb the ranks of the modeling world, is joined by Birgit Kos and Amandine Renard, who appear on the foldout pages of the cover, each wearing Chanel teamed with a pair of white Jimmy Choo boots. Adut is the first model of color to front the Italian fashion bible since Alicia Burke in November 2016.
Our forum members couldn’t wait to sound off on the cover. “Literally SCREAMED when I saw the title but this is a big meh. I was expecting something more over the top, when they’re at their best. But I’m happy for all of the girls. They deserved it,” credited helmutnotdead.
