Yara Shahidi is one of the most prolific and influential young women in Hollywood today. The talented Harvard freshman has gotten the honor of covering yet another magazine in recognition of her contributions to the fashion industry.
For the sixth annual #BoF500, Shahidi will join the likes of François-Henri Pinault, Virgil Abloh, and Kalpona Akter as the magazine celebrates fashionistas that are pioneers, disruptors, innovators, and artists that address fashion’s critical issues without missing a beat.
When compiling the #BoF500 list for this year, editors wanted to choose people that they felt we could all learn from and that are leading the way and shaping the industry both nationally and globally. We unquestionably think that they made the right decision when they picked Yara! She is most definitely a shining star who’s setting a new industry standard for generations to come. She truly is the future!
