Miley Cyrus Proudly Posts About "Vogue" Paris' Transgendered Cover Model!

Valentina Sampaio for Vogue Paris

The French edition of Vogue will feature a transgender model on the cover of its March issue, the magazine has announced.

Cosmetics group L'Oreal Paris has selected 24-year-old transgender model and actress Hari Nef to represent its latest foundation cream in a global ad campaign.

"Beyond her evident physical qualities and her sparkling personality, (Sampaio) embodies. a long and painful fight against being perceived as a "gender exile", Emmanuelle Alt, the magazine's editor-in-chief, writes in her editor's letter.

In her editorial, Ms Alt added that the Brazilian is the "absolute equal" of any other iconic women in fashion. The issue hits newsstands on February 23.

'Apart from one small detail, Valentina, the femme fatale, was born a boy, ' she says. The fashion magazine's second biggest issue of the year features its first transgender model front and center-Brazil native Valentina Sampaio.

According to American Vogue, Alt wanted to put a transgender model on the cover, and Sampaio's Instagram impressed her.

"This month we are proud to celebrate transgender beauty and how models like Valentina Sampaio, who is posing for her first-ever Vogue cover, are changing the face of fashion and deconstructing prejudice", Vogue Paris captioned an Instagram post, unveiling Sampaio's historic shoot.

As The Cut notes, the March cover isn't just a throwaway distinction - it's a move carefully created to offer maximum visibility in what is generally understood to be a fashion magazine's second biggest issue of the year (after the almighty, ad-laden September issue). "She spoke to her agent in Portuguese, and then her agent translated, asking us if it was a trial, or if it was really going to happen, and I said, 'Yes, it's really going to happen'".
