Pulse megastar Jeneil Williams appears in American Vogue March 2022, the first major editorial outing for the supermodel since giving birth to her daughter Dylan. This appearance is significant in many ways for a model who is probably the most successful and enduring from the Caribbean.
Vogue is the unofficial “bible” of the fashion industry and American Vogue is its flagship publication. In the current issue, Jeneil is one of a number of models featured as the magazine explores body types and diversity in fashion. She is photographed with her daughter for the first time in a major publication and a number of additional mother/daughter images will appear in subsequent issues. This previously hush-hush project is a special Vogue feature which explores some of the burning issues of this groundbreaking era.
Jeneil and Vogue have a very special relationship, as she has appeared on the cover no less than 3 times. Only Pulse models, from the growing list of Caribbean produced stars, have appeared on the cover of Vogue. The others are Lois Samuels, Alicia Burke and Sedene Blake.
Williams has had many awards, and accomplishments and several and have been catalogues by fashion’s most important manuals. Vogue featured her as one of 5 Jamaican models who changed the face of fashion. Only herself and Pulse agency colleague Nadine Willis were raised and developed in Jamaica. The others such as Grace Jones and Stacy McKenzie were discovered and developed in Europe and Canada respectively.
Williams has walked runway miles for almost every “great” or noteworthy fashion line. Similarly, her covers include many of the world’s top publications other than Vogue, including the special Conde Nast sister publication Love, in an issue that featured different covers, all highlighting a different member of the then top 10 models in the world. This included Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Amber Valette, Natalia Vodianova and Daria Werbowy.
Williams’ legacy is now emblazoned in the annals of fashion history. She is a model of which Pulse is truly proud, coming from humble beginnings to the Pulse Model Search, introduced to the New York market by Pulse Chief, Kingsley Cooper and now firmly established as one of fashion’s most recognized and enduring stars.
