KAMALA HARRIS Vogue’s Kamala Harris cover sparks social-media frenzy: ‘What a mess up’


The cover was not the one Harris’ team expected to be
used, one writer claimed


The cover of February’s upcoming issue of Vogue , which
features Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris , has been
widely criticized on social media.


Some fans of the future VP are claiming Harris looks
washed out in the photo while others say the cover’s style
doesn’t give her the respect she deserves.
And some say it’s just plain bad.


“What a mess up. [Editor-in-Chief] Anna Wintour must really
not have Black friends and colleagues,” author Wajahat Ali
wrote.


“Kamala Harris is about as light skinned as women of color
come and Vogue still f—ed up her lighting. WTF is this
washed out mess of a cover?” Twitter user E. Vaughan
said.



She added, “Vogue knows Kamala Harris loves her sorority,
suits, comfortable pants and chuck taylors. So they just
jumbled it all together for the cover.

Except they couldn’t
decide whether she is going to a luxe French salon, the
Senate floor, or taking a jog.”



User MVP Harris said the cover proves it’s time for 71-year-
old Wintour to step down as Vogue’s editor.


“If the only time her team can properly style a black women
is when she’s covered in couture then her tenure has ran it
course.

Look at how Kamala Harris’ Elle cover straight up
bodied Vogue. Electric chair!”
“Folks who don’t get why the Vogue cover of VP-elect
Kamala Harris is bad are missing the point,” activist
Charlotte Clymer tweeted. “The pic itself isn’t terrible as a
pic. It’s just far, far below the standards of Vogue.

They
didn’t put thought into it. Like homework finished the
morning it’s due. Disrespectful.”
“Vogue has Kamala Harris in some f—ing Converse.
Someone needs to throw a cinderblock at Anna Wintour fr,”
user miss mullet said.


However, it wasn’t hated by everyone.
One Twitter user said it spoke to her generation. “I had a
pair of @Converse in middle school! #1984 now this is the

BRAND #GENZ WANTS!” She added it sets an example

for realistic fashion.
The cover was not the one Harris’ team expected to be
used, according to a source familiar with the publication,


New York magazine contributor Yashar Ali tweeted.



“In the cover that they expected, Vice President-elect Harris
was wearing a powder blue suit.

That was the cover that the
Vice President-elect’s team and the Vogue team, including
Anna Wintour, mutually agreed upon…which is standard for
fashion magazines,” Ali added.


He said it meant someone changed the cover without
informing Harris’ team.


Harris has not commented on the cover.
