Kamala Harris’ Vogue cover is here! And, well...I know the year has only just begun, and there’s still another 11 and a half months left to go before we reach the end of 2021. But after looking at this cover, shot by photographer Tyler Mitchell, I feel totally confident in declaring beyond a shadow of a doubt that the vice president-elect’s Vogue cover is certainly, absolutely, positively, 100% going to be one of the magazine covers released this year.


On the cover of Vogue’s February issue, we see Harris standing in front of a bunch of drapery. I love the muted pink-and-green color combination of that drapery, by the way. And said drapery’s heavy textures! Great textures, beautiful textures.

Accompanying the print cover is this digital cover, also shot by Mitchell. It’s lovely! She looks lovely! Imagine if this were a print cover, perhaps? Just one woman’s opinion, of course. Don’t read into this! Personally.

For some reason, I’m thinking of the idiom “don’t judge a book by its cover.” So, in the spirit of that phrase, for whatever reason I’m thinking of it, why not click through and read Vogue’s February cover story by journalist Alexis Okeowo in which Harris talks about her and president-elect Joe Biden’s plans for their first 100 days in office, future coronavirus relief, and whether or not she wants to abolish the police (surprise: “We need police officers!”).

I like her signature shoes on the top pic, but I love the second one better for gold background, coloring, stance and her facial expression. The second one seems very lush and that she is in charge. The first one has her looking a bit confused. “I’m on Vogue??”
