One of the most fashionable magazines on the planet – British Vogue – has dispensed with the Hermès-clad A-lister for its latest cover, instead opting for three female front-line workers in a dedication to everyday people’s fight against CV-19.

In place of the usual models or actresses, the trio of covers feature Narguis Horsford, a train driver for the London Overground; Rachel Millar, a community midwife; and Anisa Omar, a supermarket worker and business school student were captured. It follows on from a similar editorial move by UK Grazia back in April.

All three were London-based due to the current restrictions placed on travelling and were photograhed by famed fashion shooter Jamie Hawkesworth.

The covers – and accompanying interviews – debuted on Monday for the launch of Vogue’s July issue. Check out the three covers below:

Train driver Narguis Horsford

Midwife Rachel Millar

Supermarket worker Anisa Omar

In a statement, Vogue said: “This moment in history required something extra special, a moment of thanks to the new frontline. It is an uplifting tale of kindness and revived community spirit, of people pulling together.”

The magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful added: I can think of no more appropriate trio of women to represent the millions of people in the UK who, at the height of the pandemic, in the face of dangers large and small, put on their uniforms and work clothes and went to help people.”

Commenting on her cover debut, Narguis Horsford  said: “I am no hero, but I’m proud of being a train driver and the essential role we are playing during the coronavirus crisis. Our services are vitally important to keep London moving throughout these unprecedented times and maintaining safety, to ensure our key workers can get to where they need to be to provide the services that are required.”

Anisa Omar added: “Before the pandemic, people would look at us as service assistants  – we’re there to show them where the eggs are or if they want to complain about something. But now they’re a lot more understanding. They understand that we’re here all the time, and they don’t have to leave their houses. People are a lot nicer, they’re warmer,” she said.
