Take a good look at the forthcoming February 2015 issue of Lucky magazine. Strutting their stuff on the cover are (l to r) fashion bloggers Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad), Zanita Whittington (zanita.com.au) and Nicole Warne (Gary Pepper Girl).
Whittington, from Down Under, has blogged about how surprised she was by this magazine turn of events:
At first I thought the email said I going to be part of the issue and not the cover – which would be Chiara and Nicole – and that made obvious sense. Then I re-read it about 20 times and it came home to me… I was going to be on the cover too!
Things became embarrassing. I may have ugly/happy cried/sobbed. I was incredulous! Me?? I’m a fangirl – not a covergirl!
Well, I guess now I’m a covergirl. WOW.
According to The Cut’s Véronique Hyland, this is the first time bloggers have solely graced the cover of a major American fashion magazine. It’s also worth noting that all three are based outside the U.S. Congrats.
