Congratulations, Ariel!


Twenty year-old model Ariel Nicholson has made history as the first openly transgender model on the cover of US Vogue. 


She shares the cover of September’s “Generation America” theme alongside Anok Yai, Bella Hadid, Lourdes “Lola” Leon, Sherry Shi, Yumi Nu, and Kaia Gerber.


Taking to social media she said: “I’m so excited to share my first American Vogue cover! September 2021 <3 To have the opportunity to participate in the shifting landscape of fashion is a dream come true”.


Laverne Cox was the first trans woman to appear on the cover of British Vogue and Valentina Sampaio appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris in 2017, but Nicholson’s appearance marks a first for the US edition.


We love to see it!
