Ukraine President and First Lady Appear On Vogue Cover

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife, First Lady Olena Zelenska, posed for the cover of the October issue of Vogue. The cover story included discussions of the couple’s nearly two-decade of marriage, shared history and spending time without their children who have to be separated due to Russia’s ongoing invasion of the country.

Both the President and the First Lady spoke to the Vogue team in Kyiv, in an in-person interview. The war in Ukraine has been going on for more than 150 days and has claimed the lives of thousands of people.

Mrs. Zelenska’s portrait was posted by vogue, which called it a “portrait of bravery.” In the photo, the First Lady is sitting inside the presidential office and dressed casually in black pants and a white shirt. She has also posed for photographs along soldiers and wreckage in other images released by Vogue on its official Instagram account.

“As the war in Ukraine enters a critical new phase, the country’s First Lady, Olena Zelenska, has become a key player – a frontline diplomat and the face of her nation’s emotional toll,” Vogue said on its Instagram handle.

Speaking to the magazine, the First Lady said she met her future husband in high school in their hometown of Kryvyi Rih in southeast Ukraine. They began dating while at university and formed a satirical troupe.

The images were deemed quite controversial and were met with mixed reactions. Many users said the digital cover was “beautiful” and a “powerful image”. Others, however, criticised the couple for posing for a magazine at a time when their country is ravaged by war.

“During away, you either shoot your opponent or get shot…by Vogue,” a Twitter user commented. “Priorities. I’m sure the dudes in the trenches appreciate the effort the Zelensky’s are putting into stopping the war. A Vogue cover will help, for sure. Slava Ukraini,” commented another.
