Implementing their point of views and overtly expressing what they believe in, Vogue has taken significant strides to diversify. Edward Enninfu became British Vogue’s edi- tor-in-chief, becoming first non-white and first male in the magazine’s history to obtain the role. Tyler Mitchell became the first black photographer to shoot a cover story for Vogue, with Beyoncé as the muse who starred on the cover of this US edition. Then, Vogue Arabia published their latest edition with three black hijabi models as the features on the cover. In addition to making a stand for one’s opinions, Anna is clearly a supporter of strong female leaders and role models. Michelle Obama was featured on Vogue’s cover three times. Wintour praised the fearlessness of former first lady, admiring how she also transformed the role. According to CNN Style, Anna said, “She was just so inspiring to so many women. And obviously- on a very selfish note, speaking as the editor-in-chief of Vogue— she did wonders for fashion…” Another female politician who has been featured in the magazine is New Zealand’s prime minister Jacinda Ardern, who has been broadly commended for her response to the terror attacks on two mosques in Christchurch. Reported by CNN Style, Anna explained, “[Jacinda Ardern] truly brought the country together in such a remarkable way that I haven’t seen many other leaders achieve. And she was just so moving, and when she said, ‘we are all one country,’ it was a message that a lot of other leaders could learn from.”
