JACINDA ARDERN PICKED BY MARKLE FOR VOGUE EDI­TION

Fiji Sun - - Suncity -

New Zealand Prime Min­is­ter Jacinda Ardern is one of 14 women who will ap­pear in a spe­cial edi­tion of Bri­tish Vogue mag­a­zine, which is be­ing guest edited by the Duchess of Sus­sex, Meghan Markle.

The high-pro­file Septem­ber is­sue en­ti­tled Force for Change high­lights what Vogue calls trail­blaz­ing fe­male change­mak­ers.

It says they range from ac­tivists to artists, and from prime ministers to cli­mate change cam­paign­ers.

The Duchess has spent the past seven months se­cretly work­ing on the up­com­ing edi­tion.

The women she’s se­lected to ap­pear on the cover are: Ad­woa Aboah, Adut Akech, Ramla Ali, Jacinda Ardern, Sinead Burke, Gemma Chan, Lav­erne Cox, Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek Pin­ault, Francesca Hay­ward, Jameela

Jamil, Chi­ma­manda Ngozi Adichie, Yara Shahidi, Greta Thun­berg, Christy Turling­ton Burns - and the reader, rep­re­sented by a mir­ror.

Ms Ardern hosted the Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex in New Zealand last Oc­to­ber as part of their first joint over­seas tour past Oc­to­ber. Ms Ardern has featured in Vogue be­fore. She was pro­filed in the March 2018 is­sue of US Vogue.

The Meghan Markle-edited edi­tion will also fea­ture what’s de­scribed as a “can­did con­ver­sa­tion” between the Duchess and Michelle Obama, the former First Lady, whom she has long ad­mired, as well as an interview between her hus­band, the Duke of Sus­sex and Dr Jane Goodall, a pri­ma­tol­o­gist whom she has idolised since child­hood. The mag­a­zine will hit news stands on Au­gust 2.

The lat­est edi­tion of Vogue is guest edited by the Duchess of Sus­sex.
