ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

VOGUE Australia - - CONTENTS - EDWINA McCANN ED­I­TOR-IN-CHIEF

Given the mod­el­ling and celebrity power force she has be­come, it is funny to think that when we pub­lished Gigi Ha­did’s first Vogue Aus­tralia cover in June 2015, we felt the need to de­scribe her as a ‘so­cial su­per­model’. She is a se­ri­ous suc­cess and wears the lay­ers of the sea­son’s ex­ag­ger­ated knits and coats in the most ap­peal­ing way. If you are a huge Gigi fan, we have also printed a lim­ited-edi­tion spe­cial one-off cover (above), avail­able for pur­chase only on­line and sure to be­come a col­lec­tor’s item. Go to Vogue.com.au for de­tails.

This month, we also fea­ture the beau­ti­ful Aus­tralian ac­tress Yvonne Strahovski, who has been cap­ti­vat­ing au­di­ences as the cap­ti­vat­ing Mrs Water­ford in The Handmaid’s Tale. In May, Yvonne was in Mel­bourne to shoot An­gel of Mine, di­rected by Stranger­land’s Kim Far­rant, when she thrilled us with the news she is preg­nant (she later an­nounced it on In­sta­gram, too). She will re­turn to Canada to shoot sea­son three of The Handmaid’s Tale, which will com­mence after the baby is born. I am not sure how so many of us missed the fact that the beau­ti­ful Mrs Water­ford with her im­mac­u­late US ac­cent was in fact a Syd­ney-born na­tive who honed her craft at the Uni­ver­sity of Western Syd­ney, but at Vogue, we have cer­tainly em­braced and claimed her now, and wel­come her to our pages while wish­ing her our best for the im­pend­ing birth of her first child and moth­er­hood to fol­low.

Fi­nally, I con­grat­u­late an­other pow­er­house and favourite of Vogue’s, ModelCo founder Shel­ley Sul­li­van (see page 99), for wow­ing the world with the launch of her col­lab­o­ra­tion with Karl Lager­feld. She founded her com­pany at just 21 and is clearly still go­ing from strength to strength – what an in­spi­ra­tion.

Gigi. This spe­cial lim­ited-edi­tion Gigi Ha­did cover is only avail­able on­line. Go to Vogue.com.au.
