Transgender cover star features on Vogue Paris

Read more

Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio covers the March 2017 edition of Vogue Paris, making it the country’s first ever magazine to feature a transgender model on a cover. Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt commented Valentina “is the absolute equal of Gisele, Daria, Edie or Anna. Apart from one small detail: Valentina, the femme fatale, was born a boy. It’s a detail one would prefer not to have to mention, a ubiquitous detail in these women’s lives that they didn’t ask for and a detail one imagines they want to forget. But Valentina is on the cover of Vogue this month, not just for her looks or her sparkling personality, but because despite herself she embodies an age-old, arduous struggle to be recognized and not perceived as something Other, a gender exile.” On the topic of transgender beauty, Alt concludes “only when a transgendered person poses on the front cover of a fashion magazine and it is no longer necessary to write an editorial on the subject will we know that the battle is won.
