Looks like Vogue is stepping up in a big way. The magazine just shot rapper A$AP Rocky and his model girlfriend, Chanel Iman, together for their annual September issue. While they’ve each appeared in editorials before, both for Vogue and other publications, this is the first time they’ve been featured together. Also, it marks a push towards more diversity in the publication, which is huge since the industry has gotten some blowback for not enough variety in its casting.
From what we’ve seen on Chanel’s Instagram account, the shoot is definitely going for a Dirty Dancing vibe, with A$AP swinging Chanel around like they’re both at a Catskills resort, but between you and me—looking at A$AP’s shoe game and Chanel’s flow-y dresses I’m getting more of an “In the Closet” vibe. Either way, this is going to be amazing, and I’ll be staking out the magazine rack at the nearest Barnes & Noble. See you then.
