Piergiorgio Del Moro & Samuel Ellis Scheinman for Vogue Italia
Piergiorgio Del Moro and Samuel Ellis Scheinman cast the very special September edition Vogue Italia featuring 100 unique covers and stories photographed by Mark Borthwick. It is the first time in history that all 26 editions of Vogue worldwide share the same editorial theme: Hope.
The magazine hit the stands today, and 100 stories will be shared on Instagram in the form of 60-second videos. Editor-in-Chief Emanuele Farneti wrote in the editor's letter, “Last April, when we decided to leave our cover white, we were convinced that silence was the right message of respect and reserve. Now instead, with the onset of a new season that will, in many ways. be crucial, we think this is the moment to raise our voices and talk about hope and beauty.”

Non-binary, genderless, or transgender models, like Indya Moore, Juno Mitchell, and Cici Tamiz, on the frontline in the fight for LGBTQI+ rights. Black activists such as Bethann Hardison. And then again, the pioneers: Ugbad Abdi, the first to walk down a catwalk donning a hijab, or Precious Lee, the first plus-size model of color to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated. But also Cameron Russell and Trish Goff, both key figures in the #metoo movement. Asian model Ash Foo, back on the catwalk after undergoing chemotherapy. Models, activists, writers, photographers and world-renowned artists such as Dominique Durosea, who explores racism, black feminism and gender; the deputy director of New York’s New Museum Karen Wong and star architect Gisue Hariri. The covers also highlight “ordinary” women, like Uber driver Debra Solomon, or softball player Jade Meehan. An interesting fact: the cover stars also include Cassi Namoda and Delphine Desane, two of the artists behind the covers of Vogue Italia’s “Illustrated Issue” (January 2020).
