–> She’s a cover girl!
Amanda Gorman, who stunned the world when she made history as the youngest poet to read at a presidential inauguration this year, has taken our breath away again. Covering the May issue of Vogue Magazine, she looks stunning draped in an outfit by Black designer Virgil Abloh. Gorman knocked off yet another first at only 23, becoming the first poet to cover Vogue with a cover story entitled, “Rise of Amanda Gorman.”
“The first poet ever on the cover of @voguemagazine. I am eternally grateful & do not expect to be the last—for what is poetry if not beauty,” she wrote. “What a joy to do this cover while wearing a piece designed by groundbreaking Black designer @virgilabloh that honors my heritage.”
The photos shot by Annie Leibovitz exude Black girl magic.
Her fans can’t get enough of her.
Amanda Gorman and this Vogue cover. 😍👑 I love both covers, but it’s the Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh blanket and belt, for me. 💜 📸: Annie Leibovitz pic.twitter.com/BwhUR0aHz2
