Vogue‘s hotly anticipated May issue featuring the top models of the industry will be out on newsstands soon, and many people are excited to see more black people covering the magazine than in previous history. This year, models Liya Kebede and Jourdan Dunn will share the cover with other notables in their field. Last summer’s Vogue Italia featured a number of successful black models, including Naomi Campbell, Sessilee Lopez, and Liya Kebede on the covers and in feature stories.
America’s Vogue is in its third consecutive month of putting black people on its cover, starting in March with Michelle Obama, followed by Beyonce covering the April issue. This May issue is heavily awaited because it will showcase models, despite magazines having been caught up with putting actors on covers these days. It’s good to see an institution, such as Vogue, highlight diversity.
