An apparently leaked copy of the publication’s February issue cover, shot in front of a pink and green background, began circulating online Sunday. The photo instantly attracted ire on social media for appearing poorly lit and styled, while others suggested it was “disrespectful” to the Vice President-elect.
With some Twitter users even questioning whether the image had been faked, Vogue confirmed it as genuine — but added to the confusion by revealing a second “digital” cover showing Harris in a powder blue Michael Kors suit against a gold background. CNN’s source said that Harris team had expected this outfit to be used as the main cover photo, with the more casual attire appearing inside the magazine. The same source said the Harris team has asked for a new cover, though the print version of the magazine went to press in mid-December.
