The Magazine: FASHION

The Cover Star: Heather Marks

Perceived Appearance of Cover Star: White

Does the magazine appear to feature any models of colour in the editorials?: This was a Whiteout Issue. This is especially disappointing as it is FASHION’s Summer Issue, covering both June and July 2017. There were two fashion editorials. The first starred one thin, white model. The second starred two thin, white models. As such, there were a lot of wasted opportunities for diversity.

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