Anna Wintour responds to flap over Kamala cover

Fashion icon Anna Wintour has responded to criticism of Vogue’s February issue, which features Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Some thought the cover was disrespectful and not flattering. The 71-year-old Wintour, who is the global editorial director of Vogue and Conde Nast’s worldwide chief content officer, said she understood the uproar. “There was no formal agreement about what the choice of the cover would be. And 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. “And we felt to reflect this tragic moment in global history, a much less formal picture, something that was very, very accessible and approachable and real, really reflected the hallmark of the Biden-Harris campaign and everything that they are trying to, and I’m sure will, achieve.” Harris graces the February issue dressed in a black Donald Deal blazer, colour-coordinated pants and a white top, and poses in her usual footwear, Converse. A different photo shows Harris wearing a powder blue Michael Kors Collection suit. “The team at Vogue loved the images Tyler Mitchell shot and felt the more informal image captured Vice President-elect Harris’s authentic, approachable nature — which we feel is one of the hallmarks of the Biden/Harris administration,” Vogue had said. “To respond to the seriousness of this moment in history, and the role she has to play leading our country forward, we’re celebrating both images of her as covers digitally.” Sunday school teacher pleads guilty to sexual assault of teen girl HUNTER: America takes vengeance on killer who ripped baby from mom’s womb Trump denies any responsibility for supporters’ attack on U.S. Capitol
