US Vogue release it April 2020 Cover and this time it features models from around the globe including Adesuwa Aighewi, Ugbad Abdi, Kaia Gerber, Adut Akech and 24 others.
Based on Vogue’s Fashion News Director, Chioma Nnadi who pen the cover story :
While the geographical sweep of runway stars was once drawn along narrow lines in which nationality, ethnicity, and race were often reduced to passing trends, there is a real sense today that fashion is, at long last, embracing an idea of beauty that encompasses the entire world. Phrases once used to crassly compartmentalize models—from the “Brazilian bombshell” to the “all-American beauty”—no longer fit, and the wave of identically cast Eastern European faces that dominated the runways in the early aughts has given way to a new generation of diverse international characters with multilayered identities.
As the fashion industry continues to address its shortcomings in the wake of #MeToo, and the conversation around the health and well-being of models continues to open up, the young women on these pages are raising their voices and asserting their individuality, their perspective, and their points of view. Among them, you’ll find Ugbad Abdi, the Somali-born teenager from Iowa who’s challenging stereotypes about Muslim women, and Adesuwa Aighewi, whose passion for ethical fashion is informed by her West African, East Asian, and Southeast Asian heritage.
Vogue definitely took a different turn with their April cover “Beauty Without Borders” by bringing together different models from different part of the world representing 25 international editions of Vogue.
