This Elle Spread Is A Reminder Of Fashion’s Major Diversity Issue

Elle magazine marked its 30th birthday with a fashion spread called “The Elle Look” in its September 2015 issue. The magazine called upon 30 prominent designers and their muses to recreate “The Elle Look,” which the publication describes as “channeling our rich history of strong, sexy women with great personal style.'”

Of the 81 designers and muses chosen for the story, only one is black: English actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who is biracial. The collective number of Asian and Latino or Hispanic designers can be counted on one hand, while the muses that represent each designers’ ideal were overwhelmingly white. 

The spread serves to highlight an issue that runs rampant in the fashion industry: a lack of diversity both within the pages of magazines and on the runways. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen pose alongside Beatrix Ost, Giorgio Armani is pictured with model Karolina Kurkova, and the list goes on.

Bethann Hardison, a former model and a prominent fashion consultant who has been calling for diversity for decades, was surprised by the magazine’s glaring omission.

“When [then-publication director] Regis Pagniez brought Elle to the U.S. in the ’80s, he put black girls on the cover. Gail O’Neill, Karen Alexander, Kirsti Bowser. Conde Nast had to step back; it blew their minds,” she told The Huffington Post. This spread is just an example of Elle “feeling precious,” Hardison added. 

That history is why, then, it’s more than a little disappointing to see one of the most influential fashion magazines showing an utter lack of responsibility when it comes to choosing people that represent their vision. Elle didn’t respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post, but one thing’s clear: When designers, magazine staffers and industry insiders visualize their “girl,” that vision continues to omit people of color.

Truck Drivers and Casual Sex: An Inquiry Into the Potential Spread of HIV/AIDS in the Baltic Region

Truck Drivers and Casual Sex: An Inquiry Into the Potential Spread of HIV/AIDS in the Baltic Region


Truck Drivers and Casual Sex is part of the World Bank Working Paper series. These papers are published to communicate the results of the Bank’s ongoing research and to stimulate public discussion. Workers in the transport industry, including long-distance drivers, are at a high risk of HIV infections. Frequent traveling, long absences away from home, long waits at border crossings and the apparent abundant presence of commercial sex workers at these places mean truck drivers are particularly vulnerable to engaging in casual sex. While the threat of an HIV/AIDS epidemic cannot be taken lightly in any country of the Europe and Central Asia region, four countries – Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia – stand out as being particularly vulnerable. First, the prevalence of HIV/AIDS is relatively high and is rapidly increasing in locations neighboring these countries, like Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova, where public health conditions are also rapidly deteriorating. Second, because of their geographical location, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania stand at the crossroads of the main East-West and North-South transport corridors, and represent the link between countries of the former Soviet Union and western Europe. The open borders and rapid transit threatens to broaden the sweep of the HIV epidemic, from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus to Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as drug injectors and sex workers come into contact with other population groups in these countries. Truck Drivers and Casual Sex is based on a survey that explores the practice of casual sex among truck drivers and commercial sex workers in the border areas of Poland and Lithuania at a point of time. It uses this evidence to extrapolate the potential impact of these practices on the spread of HIV/AIDS in these countries.

Hudson opened up the magazine about her long-distance relationship with fiance Matthew Bellamy:

“We try not to spend more than two weeks apart. When you have kids it kind of goes without saying. You don’t want to be away from your kids for more than two weeks,” she told Women’s Health.

“To me I think when women who have children are fighting overseas, that’s long distance. And that’s very challenging. I really honor those families that do that,” Hudson added.

Hudson and Muse frontman Bellamy have one son together, 3-year-old Bingham Hawn Bellamy. The actress also has a 10-year-old son, Ryder Russell Robinson, with ex-husband Chris Robinson.

Hudson also told Women’s Health about her future wedding plans with Bellamy, as the couple got engaged in April 2011.

“It’s a long engagement. I think the best part is that knowing you’re working towards the idea of a commitment that is hopefully as long of a stretch as you can pull it and forever seems beautiful… I think it’s a real journey,” she said.

“There is a traditional meet, fall in love, get married, have children. And I am working on a very non-traditional life, and it’s just happening that way. But I look forward to the wedding day because when that happens to me, marriage what I really love about it is bringing the families together, and the kids.”
