Despite our small size, Bermuda has produced a long list of people notable in their respective fields to grace the cover of international magazines, including publications such as Elle, Modern Salon, Triathlon Magazine, the New York Times Magazine, and many more.
Some of the Bermudian athletes, musicians, faith leaders, models and community members to have appeared on international magazine covers include Roy Allan Burch, Tyler Butterfield, Flora Duffy, Ashley Yearwood, Nahki Wells, Mike Hind, Collie Buddz, Lillian Lightbourn, Aliana King, Shiona Turini, Kali Lespere, Duane Jones, Dr Glenn Bascome and Shaunté Saphire, with the video highlighting the magazine covers.
We have, comparative to our small size, made an impressive number of appearances on international triathlon magazines, as both Flora Duffy and Tyler Butterfield have been featured on at least two covers, with one leading triathlon magazine featuring both of the Bermudian triathletes.
These magazine covers were published prior to Ms Duffy’s Olympic gold medal win and 2021 world championship win, meaning it is entirely possible Ms Duffy — who is a now superstar in the triathlon field — could appear on additional covers in the future.
The video above is not exhaustive, just the ones we are aware of, and it is entirely possible there could be more, especially as we have had Bermudians appear on non-English languages magazine covers which are harder for us to become aware of.
It also only includes Bermudians who have actually been featured on covers, we have multiple instances of Bermudians being involved in international magazine covers in other capacities, such as stylist and photographer, and countless instances of Bermudians being featured within the pages of international magazines.
