This is it, sis.
In case you haven’t heard the news, our fave VSCO girl, Emma Chamberlain, has landed herself on the cover of the February issue of Cosmopolitan US and we cannot👏stop👏screaming.👏
JUST LOOK AT HOW SNATCHED SHE LOOKS!
This is the first major magazine cover for the 18-year-old, who started vlogging two years ago. SHe has since become one of the most popular stars on YouTube, amassing over 8 million subscribers.
In her announcement vlog, Emma takes us behind the scenes of her cover shoot, calling the opportunity a “full circle moment” as she grew up reading Cosmo.
Cosmopolitan also posted an announcement vlog to their YouTube channel with Emma reacting to her cover for the first time. “I literally don’t know what to say. This is so insane. This is so cool. I’m literally speechless,” Emma says in shock when she finally lays eyes on the magazine.
The issue is equally a big deal for Cosmo US, who don’t frequently feature YouTube stars on their cover.
The brains behind the cover was reportedly Derek Blasberg, who Emma recently met up with while in New York.
Derek began his career as a fashion journalist and worked his way up to become BFFs with some of fashion’s elite, including none other than Anna Wintour. Derek jumped ship in 2018, leaving traditional media behind and joining YouTube as their Head of Fashion and Beauty Partnerships.
Derek’s often credited with accelerating the careers of some of fashion’s most powerful players including Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid.
And if this Cosmo cover is any indication, it looks like he’s on track to do the same for our gal Emma.
