I literally learned about this cover because I saw a tumblr text post that said "vogue just put three Asian women on their cover!!! this is a massive breakthrough!!"

followed by another person saying "where's the image?" and then this cover was posted. I died. Such representation.

Congrats to Bae Donna though, it only took one and a quarter centuries.
