While Teen Vogue has recently been recognized a paragon of "wokeness" for the children, Vogue (for adults) is under fire for potentially featuring First Lady Melania Trump on their cover — and people are pissed.
"We have a tradition of always covering whoever is the first lady at Vogue, and I can’t imagine that this time would be any different," said Anna Wintour, Editor-In-Chief of the legendary magazine, essentially confirming the future story. Wintour openly advocated for Hillary Clinton during the election cycle, so an article highlighting the achievements of a Republican would be a stark departure for the periodical. "Obviously we felt it was a moment in history for women,” Wintour had said of her choice to have articles in favor of the Democratic candidate featured in her magazine. “At times like that, you need to take a leadership position. … To me, it was in support of women."
Michelle Obama may have graced the cover of Vogue three times, but people seem to be pissed about Melania having a similar opportunity. Here's what Twitter users were saying on the subject (collected by Us Magazine):
Boycott or not, as far as the future of fashion under Trump, Wintour seems optimistic: “[The fashion industry will] be inspired by what they see and that will come out in their work,“ she said. ”The next few years are going to be incredibly creative.”
