Vogue Japan recently unveiled its August 2017 cover, photographed by Luca and Alessandro Morelli, and it’s a millennial extravaganza. The cover stars include all of the 67 non-model models who walked the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 runway, including Lebanese street style star and founder of, Lana El Sahely. “Honestly, I love it!” she exclaimed to Vogue Arabia, when asked how she felt. “It’s an honor to have my first ever cover be on Vogue and to be surrounded with such powerful social media influencers,” she adds. “It’s an interesting approach – even if I look tiny on it.”

The blogger is having quite the whirlwind year. A couple of months after being handpicked by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to walk the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 ready-to-wear show, the influencer found herself on yet another runway. During her 72 hours at the Côte d’Azur for the Cannes Film Festival, El Sahely made an appearance at Naomi Campbell’s annual Fashion For Relief charity fashion show, which raised funds for the Save the Children foundation to provide food, aid, and shelter to children caught in urgent humanitarian crises and children affected by the Syrian conflict.
