The singer/songwriter is one of Elle’s cover girls for their inaugural Wonder Women issue.
And we couldn’t be happier.
Beth Ditto represents someone who is fearless, authentically herself and proud to be who she is, as a plus size queer woman breaking rules and proving that size or sexuality doesn’t dictate success or brilliance.

Sometimes I pinch myself because my life has been so surreal. Thank you @elleuk for having me on the cover with the other amazing women! What an honor! Thank you to all the radical people who inspire me to grow. #notbadfor36 #fatandqueer Hair: @itslyndell @hairdresserontour Make up : @andrewgallimakeup Photo : @sofiaandmauro Styling : @itsdwallace BEAUTIFUL FLORAL BIZ : @preenbythorntonbregazzi #humblebrag #notsorry
The inaugural ELLE Wonder Women issue is all about celebrating inspiring and diverse women like Ditto. The other three cover models featured in this amazing issue are plus size model Ashley Graham, actress and activist Susan Sarandon and model/designer Alek Wek.
According to Elle UK:
“These women, who span different generations and backgrounds, share their stories, the good and the bad, and encourage other women, whatever their age, to do the same.
And if that isn’t enough, we commissioned four equally impressive women to interview them.”
In Ditto’s case, she’s interviewed by rock icon Debbie Harry, where they talked about everything from religion to fashion, and how much to drink before going on stage. The recording of their interview will be shared online soon.
Congrats Beth! Very well-deserved!
