The more things change, the more they stay the same. Would you believe that the average age of a Vogue cover subject is exactly the same as it was last year? It’s true, down to one one-hundredth of a decimal, averaging out to 27 (26.87, if you want to be picky). The same can be said for the median (the age smack dab in the middle) of 26, but not the mode (most common age). That dropped down 3 years to 24. Meanwhile, the range of ages widened considerably. Thairine Garcia was the youngest cover model at 14, while Lauren Hutton, 68, was the oldest.
Stay tuned for Vogue‘s top editorial model, coming soon!
