But Harris, who was also the country’s first black vice president, looked rather white due to the lighting used in the shoot.

In a statement to the New York Post, Vogue denied that Harris’ skin was lightened during the shoot. But the statement was not accepted by social media users and journalists.

New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali said, “It shouldn’t be that hard. I think Anna Wintour has no black friends or colleagues. I will shoot VP Kamala Harris using my phone for free, and I’m 100 percent sure that this Vogue cover will work better. ”

Harris, whose two photographs have been published. Is seen in one of the photographs in front of a pink fabric. In the other against a yellow background.
