Harris team says it was blindsided by VP-elect’s Vogue cover

WILMINGTON, Del.: Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is on the cover of Vogue’s February issue, but the photo isn’t what was agreed upon.

Instead of the suit Harris wore for her cover, she is seen in more casual attire.


Harris’ team was unaware of the switch, and expressed disappointment.

In a statement, Vogue said it went with the more informal image of Harris for the cover because it captured her “authentic, approachable nature.”

The magazine released both images as digital magazine covers to “respond to the seriousness of this moment in history, and the role she has to play leading our country forward.”

PARIS: Ending the confusion over the fate of Paris Fashion Week, French fashion’s regulatory body said that this month’s Paris men’s and haute couture shows will be strictly audience-free over Covid-19 fears.

The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode has told luxury houses they won’t be allowed to invite guests this season, after instruction by police.

In a statement, they said that “we confirm that there can be no public gatherings” at Paris Fashion Week, adding that fashion “houses can still organize ‘real’ runway shows with models broadcast live, provided that their events take place behind closed doors.”
