Diversity is quite the buzzword nowadays. Many do the bare minimum to appear “woke” so it’s great to see a publication like Elle making an effort. For the May 2017 swimsuit issue, the magazine awarded covers to six IMG models that include Maria Borges and Jasmine Tookes. In the past a plus-size model wouldn’t have made the cover of a swimsuit issue but here we’ve got Candice Huffine. “It” girls Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin are present with Swedish model Elsa Hosk rounding out the group. Maybe next year they can add an Asian model into the mix. Check out the six covers below.
The May 2017 issue of Elle magazine hits newsstands on April 18.
