US Vogue is celebrating individuality for its January 2016 issue, looking to 44 musicians, athletes, artist, writers, dancer and models to reinforce and commend the fact that fashion is embracing a new era of inclusion, authenticity and freedom.
From Zendaya to Lorde, Jennifer Hudson, Karlie Kloss and more, the fashion bible has put together a video about what it means to be yourself, giving the celebs a chance to open up about their own personal journeys to self-acceptance.
“I feel like I kind of discovered aspects of my identity, or really core aspects of it, through my work,” transgender model Hari Nef explained in the video, while Zendaya shared, “I think a lot of the times we look to other people for validation as to who we are.”
As part of the concept, Lorde, Zendaya, Taylor Hill, Imaan Hammam, Nieves Zuberbühler and Justine Skye also all partook in a stunning and empowering shoot, with Lorde admitting she was mesmerised by fellow singer Justine’s beauty. “@justineskye has the most incredible skin i’ve ever seen on a human being including babies, her face looks photoshopped, i was hypnotised [sic],” the Kiwi singer wrote on her Instagram.
