Vogue, one of the world’s top fashion magazines, will be publishing a new Kamala Harris cover after backlash.

The February Vogue cover featuring VP-elect Kamala Harris has been widely criticized on social media.

A leaked shot of Vice President-elect’s Kamala Harris’s Vogue cover resulted in an unexpected firestorm last week.

However, US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour while addressing the backlash over Kamala Harris’ February cover photo, said that the image was chosen to reflect the pandemic and the vice president-elect’s “approachable and real” nature.

“When the two images arrived at Vogue, all of us felt very, very strongly that the less formal portrait of the Vice President-elect really reflected the moment that we were living in which we are all in the midst — as we still are — of the most appalling pandemic that is taking lives by the minute,” Wintour told the New York Times.

People came out criticizing Vogue for showing the VP-Elect on social media for being disappointed over how the magazine presented Kamala Harris on its cover.

While many came out hitting out at the publication for editing the skin tone of Harris.
