Paloma Elsesser On Vogue Cover
“american vogue january 21
I woke up the morning of this shoot and hit my knees as i rolled out of bed. prayed for protection and care — for a day where I could honor how monumental this was. for the voices to be quieted, to know that this was bigger than me, and to know i was exactly where i needed to be. the day was crisp and the the low hanging fog kissed the long island pond id pose in soon enough.
everything became so surreal as i looked out to gabby, latisha, susie and annie. to work and collaborate with women i so deeply admire. to know that I’m shooting an american vogue cover as a chubby, short, mixed race womxn who never imagined this would be her reality.
although my heart swells with gratitude, i am not satisfied. i urge fashion to never let this momentum seize until seeing bodies and experiences like mine and beyond are no longer radical, no longer different; no longer rare. i want to see bigger bodied femmes, dark skin femmes, disabled people, and all the iterations of identity that have left so many alone in media. i want this moment to render a new year of possibility and a lifetime of hope.
thank you anna and *every*single*person* who has championed me through this process, my heart knows no bounds. “
