British Vogue’s November Issue Goes ‘Model-Free,’ Featuring ‘Real’ Working Women Only

British Vogue is dedicating its November issue to “real” women, the magazine reveals.

The fashion Bible’s new issue will be a “model-free zone,” as it features academics and businesswomen instead of high fashion models to fill all of its pages and editorial content for the first time in the magazine’s illustrious history.

Editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman says she was inspired to take on the project after finding it difficult to source sample designer clothing for non-models.

The new issue, which hits newsstands on Thursday, explores themes of real beauty and digs into the wardrobes of successful working women. “In this country, there is still a stigma attached to clearly enjoying how you look and experimenting with it if you are a woman in the public eye and not in the fashion or entertainment business,” Shulman told The Telegraph.

Despite the real-world theme, the magazine opted to follow tradition by placing superstar Emily Blunt on the cover of the issue. Shulman, however, defended the choice and argued that Blunt played a real woman in her latest film “The Girl on the Train”.

“It took three hours of hair and makeup to get me looking this real!” Blunt jokes about her cover shoot.
