Yesterday Vogue revealed its new March cover models. Adwoa Aboah, Liu Wen, Imaan Hammam, Vittoria Ceretti, Kendall Jenner, Ashley Graham and Gigi Hadid all featured on the cover in a Malibu beach group shoot.
Although Vogue aimed to showcase strong “fearless females” and put across the idea that “there isn’t just one type of American girl,” the shoot was criticised on social media by fans who felt that plus-sized beauty Ashley Graham had been subject to Photoshop slimming.
When Ashley posted the picture to Instagram, many users accused Vogue of lengthening Gigi’s arm so that it covered more of Ashley’s waist and pointed out that she was the only model who had her hand placed on her thigh.
