    That's what I'm confused by. Akiima only became a big deal very recently right? Then they couldn't have done the cover weeks ago before the allegations. ??? It's a bad cover regardless.

    They could have easily whip up a new shoot if they want too. I cannot take this seriously.

    Can they do better with the cover? I mean I love seeing models on the cover but this is sad.

    Sadly, they're only a small magazine so there's no way they could completely throw out a Demarchelier shoot even if they wanted to. Even big magazines these days are cutting costs wherever possible, so you can imagine the budgetary pressures for a magazine like Vogue Australia.

    From Vogue Australia website (vogue.com.au):

    Models Akiima, Charlee Fraser, Andreja Pejić and Fernanda Ly cover Vogue Australia’s April 2018 issue

    18 March 2018

    BY THE VOGUE TEAM

    In Vogue Australia's April issue, four Australian models–Akiima, Charlee Fraser, Andreja Pejić and Fernanda Ly–share their stories of childhood, challenges and of breaking an archaic beauty mould.

    For Vogue Australia's April 2018 issue, on sale March 26, Australian models–Akiima, Charlee Fraser, Andreja Pejić and Fernanda Ly–share their stories of childhood, challenges and of breaking Australia's homogeneous beauty mould. In this issue, they have penned powerful, personal stories for Vogue about their modelling careers and upbringings.

    Akiima, from Adelaide, was born in a small village while her family was travelling to a Kenyan refugee camp while fleeing war-ravaged South Sudan. She writes: “Unfortunately we don’t get to see the diversity of Australian beauty. We have come a long way, but we still need to discuss diversity in the modelling industry … because we don’t want to keep asking for a spotlight.”

    Andreja Pejić says that the fact that her body is presented as an unrealistic ideal of ‘beauty’ to the world doesn’t stop her, or most other models, from feeling unsure about themselves. “Adding to this is the fact that I am also a trans person, a war refugee, and that my long-lost father doesn’t drive a Rolls-Royce and my mother is not a former Hollywood actress with status and fame. In light of this, I have plenty of reasons to wonder: ‘How the **** did I get here?’” But of her Vogue cover, shared with three other Australian beauties, she writes: “The idea is simple, but clear and important: we’re all different, but still the same.”

    Fraser believes: “We’re slowly turning a page in the book of time and beginning to perceive beauty in all forms of race and colour. People often ask me what it’s like to be a role model for young Indigenous women and I often don’t know how to respond. I guess it’s because I’ve never sat down and thought of myself in those terms.”

    “Must there always be a bracketed ‘Australian-born Chinese’?” asks Fernanda Ly, perhaps best known in the modelling world as a face of Louis Vuitton. “Why not stop with merely ‘Australian’? … racial dysphoria is a concept I am constantly struggling with … Cultural heritage does not simply disappear … I feel like an eternal floater. I was raised in what I would consider to be a disjointed mess of Australian, Chinese and Vietnamese upbringing.”

    Wow, they look joyless in every single shot. What a waste.

    A cover is still an achievement - but so many important or interesting stories shoehorned together into the same feature with bland photography, when you know they'll go back to someone like Cate Blanchett with the next issue, with a special theme where it's clear everyone has made an effort.

    So Christine must like Charlee a lot? I like her just as much, but I'd never do the rest of the cast dirty like that. I'm sorry, but Akiima's pieces doesn't suit her frame at all! That blue jumper and skirt combo looks so slovenly, and she sticks out in an awkward way next to the others. Should've gotten Nicole Bentley to shoot this story. She'd at least have done more effort. I liked her edit with Duckie Thot a few months ago.
    I hope VA will continue to book these girls on a regular basis.

    I find all their viewpoints interesting because it differs so vastly from one another. Don't personally agree with Fernanda's contention, but she's entitled to her opinion.
