Vogue just released its March 2017 cover and it's all kinds of beautiful. It features Ashley Graham, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Imaan HammanAdwoa Aboah and Vittoria Ceretti.

The women are all styled in black turtlenecks and patterned bikini bottoms with simple, fresh faces while holding each other at the waist - except for Ashley who has her hand on her thigh, which the internet believes was a way of camouflaging her size.

“I still don’t get why they made you cover your leg and you are the only one posing like that,” a fan commented on Instagram. Ashley responded by saying that she chose to pose like that and no one told her to do anything.
