Covers & Content: January 2017

We’re sad to start our 2017 Covers & Content column knowing we are down a magazine–Flare stopped publishing print issues in December 2016. How will Elle Canada and FASHION represent diversity in Flare’s absence? Read on to find out.

The Magazine: Elle Canada

The Cover Star: model Crista Cober. This is odd, since they did a whole interview with Alicia Keys in this issue, though apparently chose not to make hers the cover story.

Perceived Appearance of Cover Star: White

Does the magazine appear to feature any models of colour in the editorials?: There was one fashion editorial in this issue starring one thin, white model. As such, this issue of Elle Canada was a Whiteout Issue.

Does the magazine appear to feature any plus-size models in the editorials?: No.

The Magazine: FASHION. Note that the Winter issue of FASHION covered December 2016 as well as January 2017, so this data is the same as previously-reported.

The Cover Star: Hailee Steinfeld

Perceived Appearance of Cover Star: Mixed race

Does the magazine appear to feature any models of colour in the editorials?: There were  two fashion editorials in this issue. One starred a thin, white model, and the second one starred one thin Latina/mixed race model.

Does the magazine appear to feature any plus-size models in the editorials?: No.
