Vogue magazine is a popular monthly publication that started out as a weekly newspaper in 1892. It was initially launched in the United States. Today, however, there are twenty-two international editions that are printed and published in different parts of the world. The latest edition to be added to the roster was Vogue Arabia which featured the model Gigi Hadid on its cover.
The magazine focuses on subjects that relate to American fashion, beauty, culture, living and runway. In other words, it’s a lifestyle magazine which publishes articles and information which modern women would find relatable, relevant and interesting. It talks about the latest trends in the world of fashion and celebrity culture. It often publishes things like the diets of celebrities and their thoughts and opinions.
While the written content of the magazine is interesting, and the topics that are written about relevant, the real highlight of each issue of the magazine is the model which it features on the cover. Over the years, there have been many beautiful and pretty ladies who have adorned the pages and the cover of the magazine. Often, famous female celebrities such singers, musician and actors are also featured. Their presence and inclusion have, no doubt, boosted the brand of the magazine and increased its popular appeal. As a result, Vogue today has a very strong standing in popular culture and its content is given a lot of importance by its female readers.
The reason that the magazine features models and beautiful celebrities is a very simple one. As I’ve already mentioned, the magazine focuses on lifestyle issues. One of the most import topics that is included as part of this is fitness. Everyone has the need to exercise regularly to be fit. Being fit and healthy is the difference between living a long and happy life and a relatively shorter one marred by illnesses. Keeping fit ensures that your body is adequately used and its resources put to good use. This, in turn, guarantees that the body will retain its health for longer and be strong, even as you grow old.
Models, with their fit and toned bodies, represent the aesthetic benefits of exercising regularly and keeping fit. Their beautiful image on the cover inspires other women to work hard to keep their bodies in tip-top shape. In a way, models indirectly promote a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise.
Models weren’t simply born with bodies that are more shapely and magnificent. To achieve the fantastic bodies that they have, Vogue models need to work hard. A major portion of each day of the week is spent exercising and dieting. These are the only two proven techniques that can be applied to shape a better body. Both need a lot of effort and mental will to accomplish. Vogue models have to limit their diet to only healthy items such as salads without any fattening dressing.
The exercise that they do is even harder. Working out is a process that physically stresses out the body so that excess resources present in it, such as fat, get used up. As part of their fitness regime, models like Gigi Hadid, Tina Fey and Blake Lively, among others, have to lift dumbbells, run on treadmills, cycle and perform squats. Each of these activities is physically exacting and requires a lot of dedication to complete. Imagine doing these every day and you’ll quickly realize how physically capable models are. In short, almost all the beautiful models that you see featured in the magazine have to exercise by lifting dumbbells, for example, to develop and maintain their figure.
