Story by VOGUE:
You could feel the sense of love and community in the air at Sunday’s Pride Parade in New York City. After a tough year with the pandemic, New Yorkers gathered in-person to celebrate and uplift the LGBTQ+ community, marching through the streets—as is tradition—with their best rainbow flags and glittered signs. Every year, a handful of Grand Marshals act as the leaders of said march. For 2021, trailblazing model Aaron Rose Philip was one such honoree, alongside actor Wilson Cruz, author-activist Ceyenne Doroshow, and more. “To be Grand Marshal is an incredible honor from my community,” Philip told Vogue. “To have them see me so profoundly, and with so much love and respect, I don’t take that lightly at all.” Clad in custom Moschino, she partook in the parade alongside the label’s designer Jeremy Scott, and documented the whole special day for Vogue.
Yesterday’s parade was Philip’s first time at the event, and she says she couldn’t have imagined a better person to make her debut with than her close friend Scott. “I’m happy to share this moment with him,” Philip says. “He has been such an angel in my life. He’s been in my corner and has really stuck his neck out for me and my interests, and sees me for exactly who I am.” The appreciation is mutual; Scott says Philip is in a league of her own. “Her personal passion to shine her light on other trans women who are in need of a spotlight is something that I find so admirable and endearing,” says Scott. “She’s not just breaking barriers for herself—she’s working to do it for so many others as well.”
Given the momentous feel of the day, Scott knew he wanted to create something one-of-a-kind for Philip—and he knew she would be game for something completely fabulous. “I love her enthusiasm for fashun,” says Scott. “She loves to take risks and turn lewks and play with fashion in such a wonderful and buoyant way. I wanted her to feel beautiful and confident on this magical day, and felt that my role was to support my friend and muse.” He ended up sketching three different designs for her, utilizing flouncy chiffon. Philip ended up choosing a custom blue, one shoulder silk-chiffon mini dress, complete with a frilled hem and multicolored crystal embellishments. “It’s one of the most beautiful things that I’ve ever seen,” says Philip. “I felt really honored to be wearing that because it feels so vibrant, sexy, and appropriate for the occasion.” The final creation was handmade in Los Angeles and took two days of sewing and cutting as well as two days of patterning the dress.
Giving the “full fantasy,” Philip finished off the look with ultra-glam hair by John Novotny and makeup by Grey Hoffman (she gets bonus points for matching her eye shadow to the dress). “It’s giving supermodel,” Philip says. But yesterday was about more than just making a fashion statement for the parade. “Pride is about celebrating oneself and authenticity, and really doing something to uplift yourself and the people around you,” she says. “It was a very symbolic Pride. Pride is about getting back to life with each other again.” But now that Pride Month is coming to a close, don’t expect Philip to stop channelling that feisty, confident energy either. “I want to work on some personal projects, but I also want to enjoy my summer, and have a Hot Girl Summer,” she says.

All that ignorance, that you wrote clearly shows that your intellectual powers are weak.you are thinking that my DAUGHTER IS LOOKING FOR ACCEPTANCES. FROM WHOM?You are obviously not a reader, or writer, JUST SOME ANGRY HEFFA HATING ON MY CHILD BECAUSE, YOU SUMPLY JEALOUS ALL OF HER.
KEEP ON RANTING AND raving let’s see if any of your hateful words can stop her.
Go educate yourself and stop making yourself a regular ass. At least SHE IS EDUCATED. SPINNING YOU ON THE TIP OF HER LITTLE FINGER.JUST ON THE TIP OF HER NAILS.
I wish this young man all the best in life. May this young man come to truly know the Creator and discover the plans the Creator has for his life.
Come to know the creator that created him with a life altering but a creator that could not possibly have made him gay.
good for her
He’s a male according to SCIENCE.
What dis antiman doing in parade?

You and the half-pint antiman are morons. All of you reprobates should be locked up.
Just because you are afraid to come OUT ,you ARE HATING and calling other people the names that best suits you. If night were to turn INto daY., you old dried up prune. My Daughter Is a TRANSGENDER, GET IT RIGHT. I AM HER PROUD MOTHER AND HER FAMILY SUPPORT HER , HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK, that YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT HER IS WORTH,THINK ABOUT IT JUDAS..NOTHING!
Dis a news??? KMT!
ABC 🙄 sorry I mean Lbgtqi putting us on the map now lord Jesus 🙄
And wtf all those photos for 😳 is miss universe or what ???
This to come from a pond.!!!! Thought you were dried up.
Do your thing sis, Only god can judge you. We’re in no position to judge her for her choices , at the end of the day you either go to heaven or hell and most of you judging this person probably don’t even have a seat reserved in heaven. To all you so called Christians, Y’all really think God approves of your homophobia? Cause I can tell you right now if Jesus came down in human physical form and were to even spend a week with this person he wouldn’t be treating him/her the way alot of you so called holy self righteous people do. If you really wanna help him/her out, keep him/her in your prayers and keep your homophobia to yourself
He is a male according to SCIENCE!
Go DIVA…Antigua ppl just dunce!!! Negative af
LOL can hardly wait I see it now Àntigua Pride Day .
If I were to have an issue with this article it’s the need to label it “Antiguan transgender” when this individual seems to more identify with their US home more so than their Antiguan land of their birth. So my gripe would be it would have been nice if Antigua got a little shout out but otherwise than that it’s your life to live however you may see fit.
Fire bun dat… Hahaha.
The only thing that is real about you, is that you have never given birth, the “puddy cat stank” that, your knees are brused and your backside flat from over work
not even fire can fixed that real woman
