!! OMG, WERK IT! French VOGUE makes history with first transgender cover model, Valentina Sampaio !!

This is incredible! Such leaps and bounds with visibility for the trans community in the past few years – and VOGUE has a massive readership and legacy obviously, which is why decisions like this can make such an impact.

“This month we are proud to celebrate transgender beauty and how models like Valentina Sampaio, who is posing for her first ever Vogue cover, are changing the face of fashion and deconstructing prejudice,” Vogue Paris wrote in an Instagram post announcing the cover Monday.

Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt wrote on the magazine’s website that she wanted to feature Sampaio solo on the cover because she is “the absolute equal of Gisele, Daria, Edie or Anna,” referring to the modeling industry’s top stars.

“In a post-gendered world which more and more designers are highlighting on their runways, Trans people, the ultimate symbols of a rejection of conformity, are icons that Vogue supports and chooses to celebrate,” Alt added.

Have you picked up the cover yet, OMG? It’s one to hold onto for the history books! Show VOGUE that trans cover models SELL just as well as the next girl, and pick up your copy today!

!! OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Andrew Coimbra SS17 campaign !!

When creating his Spring/Summer 2017 collection, designer Andrew Coimbra had thoughts of immigration and assimilation on the brain. How do we reconcile the two, especially now, in the era of Trump, Brexit, and other unmentionables? A child of immigrant parents, Coimbra explored these ideas by remixing national signifiers (the American and Canadian flags depicted as mosaics of Mediterranean floral tiles), and by blowing up and branding Portuguese slang (Sacana, which means rascal or bastard).

Check out our favorite pieces from the collection, which you can buy now: the champagne bomber, flag T-shirts and Sacana pullover.

!! OMG, it’s called Fashion. Look it up: Bill Nye The Science Guy and Buzz Aldrin walked the runway at Men’s Fashion Week !!

The Nick Graham Fall 2017 show on Tuesday at New York Fashion Week featured none other than Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon (after Neil Armstrong) who was the last model to grace the catwalk!

Buzz told the salivating audience after that walking the show “was as easy as walking on the moon,” which he did in 1969! (Do you get it!?) Bill Nye The Science Guy also narrated the show with his luscious voice, and werked it harder than a FUN FACT on the catwalk as well! Check out more pics of them shutting it down after the jump! (Hope you brought a spare change of panties to work!)
