Jacinda Ardern's Vogue Debut
The iconic fashion bible has praised our Prime Minister as the “Anti-Trump”
The hotly anticipated Vogue photo shoot and article with Jacinda Ardern is out.
Ardern appears in the American edition of the iconic fashion and lifestyle magazine, which calls the New Zealand Prime Minister the "Anti-Trump".
The article reports on her swift rise to running the country, her relationship with Clarke Gayford, multitasking, and her recent baby announcement.
"Ardern is clear-eyed about what a prime minister of New Zealand, a country with a population of under five million, can achieve on the world stage," tells Vogue.
Ardern says: "'We're small, but we do our bit by standing up for what we believe in'."
Vogue describes Ardern as "young, forward-looking and unabashedly liberal".
"New Zealand has had two women prime ministers before, but neither made possibility and opportunity feel as contagious as Ardern, whose election slogan was cheerfully assertive: 'Let's do this'," writes the article's author, Amelia Lester.
The magazine has previously featured former US First Ladies Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Viva had the pleasure of featuring Ardern as a cover-star in our Most Fabulous People of 2017 issue. Read how empathy distinguished the game-changing Prime Minister's rise in 2017.
