Why this Harper’s Bazaar cover featuring Megan Thee Stallion matters

Megan Thee Stallion’s appearance on the front of Harper’s Bazaar marks an important stride toward diversity in the world of fashion.

The Houston rapper, born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, dons a Chanel cape on the magazine’s March 2021 cover – a nod, perhaps, to her superhero status.

At only 26, Megan Thee Stallion has already taken the music industry by storm. She was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people; won Best Hip Hop Video for her song “Savage” at MTV’s 2020 VMAs; topped the Billboard 100 chart with “WAP,” a collaboration with Cardi B; and even worked with Beyoncé.

She has also become a sex and style icon, joining a Savage x Fenty campaign and inking a deal with Revlon.

But Megan Thee Stallion doesn’t need anyone to praise her accomplishments or her beauty. In fact, she’s unabashedly proclaimed herself a “hot girl” – a mantra she invites women of all skin colors and body types to own and celebrate.
