Model, actress and generally fabulous entity Paris Jackson has just landed herself on the cover of Vogue Australia‘s July issue – her first ever international Vogue cover, just quietly – and because she’s Paris Jackson, she convinced the magazine to conduct its first ever interview via text message.
Editor-in-chief Edwina McCann gushed about Jackson, calling her “the breakthrough name of 2017”, and said of the cover story:
“When it came to [the] interview, Jackson suggested a text conversation, something we have never before agreed to at Vogue, but which seemed appropriate for someone of her generation. We are all familiar with her famous last name and I hope our interview gives readers a chance to get to know Paris Jackson.”
Jackson was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for the shoot, and in the accompanying interview, talks about using modelling and her position in the public eye to try and make the world of beauty a more inclusive place.
She also froths quite significantly on humble old Oz. “My parentals got married there so it’s for sure on my bucket list to go,” she told the magazine. “Plus Bluesfest always has the grooviest set list so maybe one year I’ll hit it up.”
Of her burgeoning career, Jackson said:
“I have so many causes that are dear to my heart and fighting for the people, I feel, is my duty. But right now since I’m doing the fashion thing, a huge focus – well, mostly what I’m putting a lot of effort into – is making sure my own personal creativity shows through whatever I’m doing while I’m working. I really want to leave a positive imprint in the fashion world, mostly regarding the media and the stereotypical beauty standard that is blasted all over every magazine you see, every article that pops up on your phone screen, every billboard you see while you’re driving down the street. I already have many young girls looking up to me and I want to be something their parents are OK with them looking up to.”
The Vogue Australia July issue is on sale Monday 26 June 2017.
