Nazanin, who was photographed for the magazine, returned to the UK in March 2022 following six years in Iran, where she was arrested on spying charges in 2016 and imprisoned, in solitary confinement or under house arrest, ever since.
‘I don’t know how I would have felt had I not had a baby,’ the mother-of-one told the magazine.
‘When I had thoughts that this was never going to end, it was her [Gabriella, her daughter] love that brought me back to life.” She is the embodiment of resilience. You go through prison and then you come out of it. Life goes on.’
Dame Deborah, who died last month aged 40, was recognised for her astonishing efforts to raise awareness of the symptoms of bowel cancer.
Singer-songwriter PinkPantheress, pictured, burst onto the music scene via TikTok and is now an international sensation. The 21-year-old, from London, won the BBC Sound Of 2022
Chef and campaigner Olia Hercules is the founder of the global charity initiative Cook for Ukraine. She said the ‘staggering response’ restored her ‘faith in humanity’
Her Bowelbabe fund now stands at over £7.3million and her extraordinary fundraising efforts – which included releasing a book and a line of charity t-shirts – led to Deborah being awarded a damehood by Prince William in her parents’ back garden.
The fashion bible also pays tribute to the Queen, 96, who celebrated an unprecedented 70 years on the throne in June.
‘During a uniquely turbulent period for the Royal Family, the breadth and depth of celebrations were testament to the Queen’s enduring and undimmed popularity, both at home and abroad,’ the magazine writes.
‘Truly inimitable, as we tentatively begin to look to the future, there is one known certainty: never will there be a Queen, or King, as revered as our reigning monarch.’
Actress Jodie Comer, broadcaster Mariella Frostrup and Channel 4 CEO Alex Mahon also make an appearance.
The August issue of British Vogue is available on newsstands and via digital download from Tuesday 19th July.
