Celebs Praise 'Vanity Fair' for Putting Lena Waithe on the Cover!

Celebrities are speaking out to praise Vanity Fair for placing Lena Waithe on its new cover and for putting a spotlight on representation in the entertainment industry.

This is the first issue put together by the mag’s new editor-in-chief Radhika Jones.

“When I thought about the kind of person I’d like to see on the cover of Vanity Fair, I thought about Lena Waithe—a member of the new creative elite remaking entertainment for her generation,” Jones wrote in her editor’s letter. “This is Lena Waithe’s year, and we’re delighted to mark it.”

Lena is best known for her work on Master of None and her new Showtime series The Chi. She will also be seen in the upcoming movie Ready Player One.

Stars like Mindy Kaling, Lupita Nyong’o, Common, Gabrielle Union, Ava DuVernay, and more have all congratulated Lena on the cover on social media. Read below!
