Journalist Yashar Ali weighed in on the image on Twitter: “Some fashion magazine news….1. The February Vogue cover featuring VP-elect Kamala Harris has been widely criticized on social media this evening. But according to a source familiar with the publication plans, this is not the cover that the Vice President-elect’s team expected,” he wrote.

“2. In the cover that they expected, Vice President-elect Harris was wearing a powder blue suit. That was the cover that the Vice President-elect’s team and the Vogue team, including Anna Wintour, mutually agreed upon…which is standard for fashion magazines,” he continued.

“3. To be clear, this Vogue cover of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is real. It’s just that per a source familiar, this is not the cover that was mutually agreed upon. The agreed upon cover had VP-elect Harris in a powder blue suit. So folks feel blindsided this evening.”

The outlet later revealed on Sunday (January 10) that the cover was, in fact, real.

Kamala Harris also went viral on social media recently after people realized she briefly dated someone famous years ago.
