The February cover of the magazine Vogue will have the vice president-elect Kamala harris, but the publication faces criticism for two aspects: the Democratic outfit and the lightening of the skin tone of the first woman to win that position.
In a preview of the cover options, the magazine published two cover options, one showing Harris wearing Converse tennis shoes, which has been criticized for allegedly “disrespecting” the vice presidential inauguration.
The publication highlights that the Democrat has made history, for being a woman and the first of color in such a high position in the United States.
“Making histpria was the first step. Now Harris has a more monumental challenge: to help heal a fractured United States and lead us out of the crisis, “he said.
Vice President-elect @KamalaHarris is our February cover star!

“The cover on the left… need not have been selected or even offered as an option. This says a lot about how you see our Lady Vice President ”, considered the legal expert Adrienne Lawrence.
The cover on the left (with the Chuck Ts) had no business being selected or even offered as an option.
This speaks volumes of how you view our Madam Vice President.

“The lightening is so lousy,” said user Candice Cam’Rom, who published a comparison with the cover of the magazine to singer Lizzo, where there is no skin lightening.
The lighting is just so bad. Compare this cover to the Lizzo cover from October. pic.twitter.com/9QepbgRoIQ
