How is this news, you say? Right. Well, Vogue's not really known for bending the rules when it comes to body types.

It seems pretty crazy to us that the idea of Anna Wintour putting a woman on the cover whose body pretty fairly reflect the way American women look (at least way more than the average model) is considered controversial. Lena's a beauty, and a boundary-breaker in a lot of ways, not the least of which because she's managed to accomplish so much at such a young age. And if anything, that deserves to be celebrated on the cover of a magazine. [The Cut]
