The Indian edition is delighted to follow in such illustrious steps.” Her colleague, Art Director and Executive Producer Christopher Sollinger added, “Showcasing white woman after white woman on covers does not work anymore, we need to show the women of the world that is of now. The world is changing and with this story we want to be apart of that global revolution.”
Norman also thanked the magazine profusely for this opportunity, gushing, “This cover means the world to me and for me to represent my community, it is such a humbling experience for me.”

The shots were styled by KC Jones using predominately Chanel and Roberto Cavalli who were huge supporters of this endeavor from the very beginning.
