British 'Vogue''s First-Ever "Real" Issue Features Zero Models — Real Women Only
Emily Blunt also appears on the cover and discusses the lack of powerful female roles in Hollywood.
British Vogue has recently tapped Emily Blunt to be featured on the cover of its first ever “Real” Issue. Known for her candid and outspoken personality, the actress opens up about her position in Hollywood, as well as the lack of powerful female roles on the silver screen and the industry in general. As Blunt explains:
There’s such a shortage that when they do arise there’s a bit of a feeding frenzy among my peers. It’s a very good thing that we keep talking about the issue. It’s a conversation that needs to continue. Although I would prefer that we actually go in a direction of producing and creating more jobs for women in the film industry as opposed to talking about it.
Staying true to the theme of “The Real Issue,” the magazine’s latest fashion shoots are all sans models, prompting the readers to think about the question of ”What is real anyway?” Apart from Blunt’s interview, the issue also features other inspiring women including architectural historian Shumi Bose, charity director Brita Fernandez Schmidt, as well as ice-cream maker Kitty Travers.
You can pick up a copy of British Vogue’s “The Real Issue” from the newsstands beginning October 6.
