Rugby Sevens in VOGUE
In fashion: the Australian Women’s Sevens.
Olympic champions in VOGUE Australia.
They brought home gold from Rio and now the Australian Women’s Sevens have gone VOGUE ahead of the upcoming Sydney Sevens tournament, which kicks off February 3 at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium.
As only single seats remain available to the show-stopping session of the joint men’s and women’s world series event on February 4, star rugby players Charlotte Caslick, Alicia Quirk, Emma Tonegato, Chloe Dalton, Sharni Williams, Emilee Cherry and Shannon Parry are gracing the pages of the February issue of VOGUE AUSTRALIA.
Shot by Justin Ridler at Maroubra Beach in Sydney’s East, the shoot shows the team looking fiercer than ever before in high-end sportswear.
“I think you always dream about becoming a world or an Olympic Champion, but being in Vogue Magazine is just a bit surreal!” Emilee Cherry told Rugby.com.au.
“It is a new space for us (Vogue Magazine), so hopefully a new audience will be exposed to our sport and culture within our group – who knows, the next Shannon Parry or Charlotte Caslick could be reading this article!”
This isn’t their first time in the spotlight – among others, they were also featuring in this month’s Women’s Health Magazine.
And WHO Magazine, where the team were named among the ‘sexiest’ people of the year.
But this month’s VOGUE, with the coverline: ‘Rugby Sevens, meet the incredible superwomen’, brings us a little bit closer to knowing these women. Now is your chance to get to know the team behind the shoot...
“You’ve got to be your best on your worst day,” her Instagram tells us.
She dives with sharks. Need we say more?
Wollongong-born, she loves the beach.
A joker who, according to her insta, throws “lamps at people who need to lighten up”. Worth a follow if only for her captions.
The Sevens captain is a mechanic from the Northern beaches and a dead set legend who is no stranger to the steep incline of the Barrenjoey Lighthouse hike.
From Roma and Toowoomba, she’s unafraid to jump from a plane. Now that’s fearless.
