The May covers proved positive for the subject of racial diversity as Liya Kebede fronted Vogue Paris, Kayla Scott scored Vogue Italia while Binx Walton starred on Vogue Spain. This month hasn’t, however, been all that motivational toward body image after an advert caused a worldwide stir shaming the bodies of the average women. Thankfully, the Icelandic edition of Glamour comes to the rescue with its empowering 8-paged spread featuring a strong and positive body-image message inside its May 2015 issue.
ALDA models (a group which passionately represents beauty and body shape without boundaries) Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Inga Eiriksdottir, Julie Henderson and Marquita Pring (each signed with IMG Models) reveal their true selves for photographer Silja Magg who captured a selection of inspirational photos, with makeup artist Tinna Empera at hand to tend to the ladies’ complexions. The portfolio is now circulating the internet while sending out a healthy, positive and powerful message to women to celebrate the skin they’re in. Kudos!
We’re sure to be seeing even more of these ladies in the very near future, so stay tuned!
