Mona Tougaard and Ugbad Abdi: the model revolution on the cover of Vogue France, August 2022
The faces of a new generation of free and committed models.
The pride of being oneself is the red thread of this issue. On the cover of our August Vogue, Mona Tougaard
and Ugbad Abdi, the faces of a new generation of free and committed models. Friends of the catwalk, they
break the cliché of rivalries between supermodels. Both of Somali origin, they tell the love of their culture.
“It’s very important to be proud of your roots. I look at my younger sisters, and girls all over the world,
who tell me how much they feel they exist when they see a woman who looks like them doing what makes her
happy. Representation contributes so much to making people feel seen and heard!” testifies Ugbad, page
95, in tune with a very intimate fashion series by Luis Alberto Rodriguez and styled by Carlos Nazario.
The pride of saying or Cindy Bruna who breaks the silence page 72 on a childhood damaged by a tyrannical
stepfather. The pride to choose. Queer and genderfuid, Sara Vienna poses for our Tailoring New Gender series
and also wants to change perspectives. On page 62, she talks to Tal Madesta about growing up in a Norwegian
Mormon community on the outskirts of Oslo, from which she extracted herself, and about her daily reinvention
of gender expression.
Also in this exceptional issue, the artist Kiddy Smile exposes herself and dares. An LGBTQIA+ icon, he
continues the struggle through his music: “I represent marginalized people, who in other countries are
killed, lynched, burned for who they are,” he says on page 40.
Finally, Vogue’s pride in welcoming all the diverse expressions…
