Whoever is chosen for the cover of a magazine is a widely publicized decision. Historically, there has been limited diversity featured in fashion. This year, women of color were highly represented in the September issue. Beyonce was posed on the cover of “Vogue,” Rihanna on “British Vogue,” as well as Tiffany Haddish on “Glamour” and Zendaya on “Marie Claire.”
