NEWS: American Vogue to print alternative Kamala Harris cover following photo backlash.

American Vogue will publish a new version of its February edition fronted by a different image of Kamala Harris, after the original cover photo was criticized for appearing casual and “washed out.”

The widely preferred alternative cover, which features Vice President-elect in a light blue suit against a gold background, was originally created for the magazine’s digital edition, but will now appear in a limited print run, Vogue announced Tuesday 19th January 2021.

“In recognition of the enormous interest in the digital cover, and in celebration of this historic moment, we will be publishing a limited number of special edition inaugural issues,” Vogue wrote on its website, with similar messages posted to social media.

Kamala Harris makes history as the first African American and Asian American Woman Vice President of the United States.
