The “surprise” i-D Magazine cover is finally here! Featuring Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn, Arlenis Sosa Pena, and Chanel Iman, it is the first major fashion magazine to feature women of color on the cover of their September issue. Last April after the shoot Sessilee wrote on Twitter: “Leaving London now!!! My God when you guys see the photos from this shoot you will die, all i can say is ITS A MAJOR MOMENT IN FASHION!!!!!” <via Fashionologie>

Is it possible to have four models of color on the cover of a magazine without making a statement about race? I’m curious to see the i-D editorial and its direction when it hits stands later this month…for now, step aside ‘addicted-to-love’-girls.

Below are some Vogue covers the models have landed in the past:

 

Vogue Germany, May 2009

Jourdann, Brittish Vogue, June 2009 supplement cover
