Meghan Markle Set Body-Positive Rules for Photographer Peter Lindbergh for Guest-Edited Vogue Cover
For the first time in the 103-year history of the British Vogue, the magazine is deviating from tradition and employing the services of a guest editor. And none other than the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is set to do the honors.
The Duchess is very interested in natural beauty, even on one of the world’s most prominent magazines as it is her strict rule for the magazine to reveal freckles.
According to the Editor-in-chief of the magazine, Edward Enninful, who worked with Meghan on the project, he said she has been ‘quite vocal.’ The pair chose the famous photographer, Peter Lindbergh, to handle the camera.
In an interview with VOGUE, Peter detailed his experience working with the Duchess.
“My instructions from the Duchess were clear: ‘I want to see freckles!’”
Meghan and Lindbergh’s relationship has a history as he was the one who handled her previous Vanity Fair cover, and as usual, she was always eager to show off her ‘freckles’ to the world.
Another instance where she proudly put her freckles on display was at her famous royal wedding to Prince Harry.
DETAILS ON THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE
Insight into the long-awaited project was offered to the public on Sunday through an Instagram post from Meghan and husband, Prince Harry’s official Instagram page.
Entitled “Forces for Change,” the issue highlights “a diverse selection of women from all walks of life, each driving impact and raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice, and open-mindedness,” the post revealed.
The issue as detailed by PAGE SIX featured a long list of prominent individuals such as activists/models: Christy Turlington, Adut Akech and Adwoa Aboah as well as Yara Shahidi, Gemma Chan and Jacinda Arden just to mention a few.
The issue also features an exclusive interview between the Duchess and Michelle Obama, and another between iconic primatologist, Dr. Jane Goodall and Prince Harry.
