Folks are getting creative as they imagine how they and/or their photography would look on the cover of Vogue magazine.
A plethora of stunning Black folks and creators have gotten in on the recent #VogueChallenge. Coincidentally, the challenge comes as Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour penned an apology for not doing enough to amplify Black creators.
"I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators," Wintour said in a company email according to the Associated Press. "We have made mistakes too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I take full responsibility for those mistakes.”
Well, she's certainly not hard-pressed for opportunities to rectify her mistakes as Black folks and their work continue to flood timelines. We compiled some of the most stunning flicks from the challenge.
