Jonathan Van Ness has become the first non-female cover star of Cosmopolitan U.K. magazine in 35 years.

The Queer Eye grooming expert features on the cover of the magazine's January issue, wearing a peachy-orange ruffled Christian Siriano dress with a pair of black and white Nike sneakers.

"My body is ready," Van Ness wrote alongside the cover shot on Instagram. "1st non Female cover star of @cosmopolitanuk in 35 YEARS."

In the comments, Siriano gushed, "Divine in every single way," with multiple heart emojis. Model Lily Aldridge also commented, "Majornesssssss," Game of Thrones star Lena Headey posted, "Be still my heart," and actress Sophia Bush wrote, "AHHHHHHH! Congrats!"

Meanwhile, the official Instagram account of Cosmopolitan U.K. also posted Van Ness' January issue cover image, and wrote in the caption, "Yep, we did it. @JVN is our January cover star. You're totally welcome."

The 32-year-old, who came out as non-binary earlier this year, discussed the reaction he received after recently revealing he has been living with HIV for the last seven years in the cover interview.

"This is only the beginning. I'm quickly realising that there is still so much misunderstanding, so much sensationalising of living with HIV. The stigma and the difficulty around the process of getting treatment is creating that. My work has only really just begun," he shared.

Van Ness also opened up about his attitude to self-care and revealed he forces himself to say no to things in an effort to stop himself from burning out.

"I was a full-time hairdresser and small-business owner, like, 19 months ago. But I hate saying no. I love my friends. I get FOMO (fear of missing out). But I have to prioritise self-care. Because if I don't then my candle will burn out," he added.
