It’s not every month our newsstand dreams become reality so we’re super excited to see none other than RuPaul grace the cover of Vanity Fair. Radhika Jones hasn’t exactly been in our forum members’ good graces this year having churned out many questionable covers, but redeems herself with the title’s holiday edition. Following notable appearances in Vogue back in May and on the cover of Interview for September, Ru strikes a pose in a Swarovski crystal-encrusted bodysuit before the lens of famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
“MOTHER! Absolutely fantastic, brilliant, beautiful, looks like Linda Evangelista, everything about it is perfect!” applauded aracic.
“Finally the glamour and festive spirit I’ve been missing on covers this month!” raved KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Finally! I was waiting for a moment like this. Miss RuPaul gets the cover she rightfully deserves!” heralded FashionMuseDior.

Sharing the same level of enthusiasm was MON: “Representation matters. Bravo, Radhika!”
“While RuPaul is pretty well known in this day and age, this Vanity Fair cover is still a big deal as it is the pinnacle of mainstream media acknowledgment. I am now hopeful that Vanity Fair might find its footing again in the upcoming decade,” praised dodencebt.
“It’s over the top but chic and tasteful at the same time, love it,” raved Nymphaea.
“I mean, this just makes me HAPPY!” said Miss Dalloway.
