Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness is the surprise cover star of the January issue of the UK edition of Cosmopolitan magazine.
Van Ness’ appearance makes him the first solo, non-female star on the magazine’s cover in the past 35 years.
Yesterday, the 32-year-old took to Instagram to share a sneak-peak of the cover image that sees him dressed in a Christian Siriano dress and a non-matching pair of trainers.
According to Cosmo UK, the last single non-female to grace its cover was Culture Club’s Boy George way back in December 1984. While boy-band One Direction had the honours in a 2012 cover shoot.
Van Ness’ cover debut follows World AIDS Day on Sunday. Van Ness also recently revealed he’s been living with HIV.
And the glamorous cover certainly proves Van Ness’ versatility. As B&T reported in mid-October, he can also turn his hand to ads – and funny ones at that – recently starring in his very own spot for iconic toilet deodoriser Poo-Pourri. Check out that fun below:
