In regular times, U.K. weekly fashion magazine Grazia is likely to feature celebrities of the caliber of Meghan Markle, Gwyneth Paltrow or Kate Moss on its front cover. However, the April 6 issue is a little different: it features four different covers, all featuring a different frontline female healthcare workers.
The cover stars include an intensive care doctor, a nurse and a paramedic, as well as U.K. Member of Parliament Rosena Allin-Khan, who is also an emergency room doctor. They all feature the copy "From the Frontline." Their stories can be read inside the magazine.
The magazine tweeted the cover yesterday along with the message: "This week's issue of Grazia is dedicated to the frontline NHS staff who have responded to the coronavirus crisis, risking their own lives to help the rest of us." The edition is also available for NHS workers to download for free.
According to Grazia, the photographs were taken under strict social distancing rules. “The cover shoot was like none I’ve ever worked on; shot in a matter of minutes in the car parks of NHS hospitals, maintaining social distancing, before Dr Janitha Gowribalan, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, paramedic Sarah Blanchard and nurse Richenda Browne went back to their day jobs – saving lives,” said Editor Hattie Brett in a statement.
