His friends and fans were quick to congratulate JVN on his achievement, with skier Gus Kenworthy commenting “Omfg! Congrats babe this is MAJOR!!!” and plus-size model Tess Holliday writing “Yes babyyyyyyy!! We are both Cosmo UK cover stars now!”
We tend to agree with Kenworthy and Holliday because if there’s anyone who can rock a sherbet coloured, custom Christian Siriano tulle gown with athletic socks and Nike running sneakers, it’s JVN. And boy, does he do it well.
The magazine cover was released a day after World AIDS Day, which Jonathan openly discussed on Instagram yesterday in a clip from his interview with Jimmy Kimmel. The reality star opened up about his own HIV diagnoses in his New York Times Best Selling novel, “Over The Top”, that he released in September of this year, and has received continued support from the media and wider community for sharing his journey.
If this is any indication of the way fashion media will be heading in the new decade, then we are certainly here for it. There’s only one thing we want for Christmas – more JVN fabulousness!
