VALENTINA SAMPAIO: TRANSGENDER BEAUTY!

Sunday, February 19th, 2017
 
Honoring a more inclusive idea of beautyVogue Paris will feature Brazilian model, Valentina Sampaio, on the cover of its March issue.  With the caption, “Transgender beauty:  How they are shaking up the world,” this is the first time a transgender model has appeared on the cover of Vogue.  Emmanuelle Alt, Editor-In-Chief of the publication, shares with American Vogue, “This cover is about the importance of [human] rights, and that we still need to make progress on an awful lot of stuff.” Sampaio, however, is no newcomer to the fashion world — she is currently a brand ambassador to L’Oréal Paris and has already covered Elle Brasil — nor is she fashion’s only transgender superstar:  Hari Nef, Lea T, Andreja Pejic, and Geena Rocero have already been rising in the world of modeling.  According to Alt, there is really no difference between the emergence of Sampaio and models, Daria Werbowy or Anna Ewers; “it’s just that she happened to be born a boy.”

KATE UPTON: ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue for a third time, Kate Upton, 24, decided to reimagine her look and take a different approach for the 2017 issue.  “This year, I had a completely different mindset about my body and instead of always trying to fit in a certain sample size, I wanted to be strong and healthy,” she shared.  “Changing my workout and focusing on weight training helped me do that. It helped me think about my body as a machine and less of something people can judge me on. People feel ashamed when they look bad one day, but it’s okay not to love yourself every second of every day. Appreciate what your body can do.”
