Vogue to publish featuring new Kamala Harris cover after controversy

NEW YORK: Vogue to release a limited edition featuring a different photo of elected Vice-President Kamala Harris after the original cover image sparked controversy, the magazine said Tuesday. 

Critics opening up about the hard copy of the February issue of the magazine slams the photo saying it was poorly composed and diminished Harris's achievements as the first Black woman to be elected vice president. The users of social media criticized the lighting of the photo where Harris wears a blazer, jeans, and sneakers and also questioned whether the magazine had lightened her skin. After such critics and backlash Vogue announce it would release some copies with a more formal portrait of Harris. A spokesperson for Vogue said, "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." Writing in the Washington Post, fashion critic Robin Givhan said the print cover was "overly familiar" and did not give Harris "due respect." the photographs were captured by American photographer Tyler Mitchell to shoot a Vogue cover with his portraits of music icon Beyonce.

The controversy over the photos of Harris, 56 was the latest to hit Wintour who now takes "full responsibility" for "publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant." She also apologized for not making enough room for Black stylists and photographers in the magazine.
