Anok Yai knows how to do firsts. Whether it was her viral entrance into the public imagination or her debut as a Prada exclusive, Anok is well versed on making history. Her latest achievement comes as her first ever magazine cover for the the Spring / Summer 2018 issue of Dazed. This limited edition cover by photographer Brianna Capozzi and stylist Emma Wyman is something to behold. Magazine covers have long been a bastion of celebrity and especially attenuated when it has comes to diversity. Recent strides in publishing and the wider fashion industry have been made, but it is no surprise to see Anok at the forefront of this progress. Make no mistake, though, Anok is not reducible to any particular moment or movement, she is her own woman, and an immensely talented one at that. Anok is first in every possible respect.
