Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has appeared in a photoshoot for iconic fashion and beauty magazine Vogue.

The shoot, which features her in Herriot pants and a Harman Grubisa trench coat, will be in the March edition of the magazine.

The image shows her looking stately as she gazes directly into the camera at one end of Bethells Beach, on Auckland's west coast.

The magazine, colloquially known as the world's "fashion bible", has previously featured former US First Ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In the article accompanying the image, Ms Ardern is referred to as "the anti-Trump" - presumably a retort to a Wall Street Journal feature that compared her immigration policies to that of the US President.

The Vogue article also described her as "young, forward-looking, and unabashedly liberal".

In an interview, Ms Ardern explains that she "didn't think [she] would be Prime Minister, because [she] didn’t consider it".

"But that’s the power of saying yes," she said, "because there will be a moment when someone asks you to do something beyond your comfort zone. I am not unique."

Ms Ardern appeared in New Zealand's Next magazine in 2017.
