Jonathan Van Ness Wears A Christian Siriano Gown & Nike Sneakers On The Cover Of Cosmo

Can you believe?…
Jonathan Van Ness is the first non-female to appear on the cover of Cosmopo in 35 years!
The beloved Queer Eye star covers Cosmopolitan U.K.‘s January 2020 issue wearing a delectable custom Christian Siriano peach gown, athletic socks, and Nike running sneakers. JVN shared a photo of the epic cover to his Twitter and Instagram accounts and credited the magazine for “showing more variations of beauty for young LGBTQ+ people.”

The magazine’s editor in chief Claire Hodgson described Van Ness in a statement Monday as “warm, funny, opinionated, kind and brave.”
Cosmopolitan has always tried new things and we are all for challenging the status quo,” she also said. “We want to represent our diverse and beautiful readership, spark conversation and shake things up.”
While British boy band One Direction appeared on the cover in 2012, the last solo non-female featured on the cover was Boy George, who appeared on the December 1984 issue.
Amy Grier, executive editor of Cosmopolitan U.K., who wrote the cover story on Van Ness, said in an Instagram post that the the pair discussed “Brexit, Bake Off, Binaries, and Bernie Sanders” in the interview, as well as some things not beginning with “B.”
