Over the past 12 months, several changes and shifts have been made in the fashion world to make it a more inclusive and accepting industry. And thankfully, there are no signs of this slowing down anytime soon. While much of the progress showcased itself in the form of more size-inclusive clothing launches or the fact that this year's fashion month was the most diverse in history, other forward-making moves were documented on the covers of some of our favorite glossies, by featuring women of all ages, races, and identities.
Jane Fonda made a powerful statement by appearing completely un-retouched on the cover of Town & Country, while Vogue Italia's October issue starred the always-stunning Lauren Hutton, who is now the oldest woman ever to appear on a Vogue cover (record-breaking, indeed!). The French edition of the magazine cast, for the first time in history, a transgender model to grace the esteemed glossy. And the July cover of Allure featured its first-ever hijab-wearing cover model, Halima Aden.
>On one of the final print issues of Teen Vogue, the magazine featured the first female presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, on its cover, rather than casting a model or actress. And while it may be the end for Teen Vogue's print edition, British Vogue entered a new era under the direction of Editor in Chief Edward Enninful, whose first vintage-inspired cover, which starred Adwoa Aboah, blew people away.
