The imminent introduction of Kamala Harris’s American fashion appearance has sparked criticism of the emergence of casual and vice president-elected teams who were dumbfounded and “eliminated” by the magazine’s cover.

An obvious leak of the cover of the February issue of the publication, which was publicly released, began to be distributed online on Sunday. The cover is pink and green.

When some Twitter users even questioned whether the image was forged, Vogue confirmed the authenticity of the image, but at the same time exposed another “digital” cover that made Harris wear a pink Michael Kors with a golden background. Pink Harris costume, which adds to the confusion. CNN sources said that the Harris team originally hoped that the suit could be used as a cover photo, while casual clothes appeared in the magazine.

A “eliminated mess”
Explaining the impact of cover photography, Vogue said that the apple green and salmon pink backgrounds were inspired by Howard University’s Alpha Kappa Alpha, which was “the first African-American grief in history.” An accompanying article stated that Mitchell once wanted to “feel an honor for Harris’ days in college and for women with strong social status like Alpha Capa Alpha.”

Harris told reporter Alexis Okeowo (Alexis Okeowo): “I always say this: I may be the first to do a lot of things-make sure I am not the last.” “I’m thinking about me.
