Amanda Gorman on the Cover of Vogue

On April 7, Amanda Gorman, the National Youth Poet Laureate who spoke at Biden’s Inauguration on January 20, became the first poet to appear on the cover of Vogue.  Gorman graced the cover in a gown with a green, orange, and brown graphic print, which was designed by Black designer Virgil Abloh, the founder of Off-White and the creative director of Louis Vuitton. 

The shoot also features the young poet in a pink tulle dress and a beautiful white gown.  Finally, she is pictured wearing a coat and skirt in matching patterns.  Each look was styled by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, her stylist. 

Gorman has many talents, having recently signed with IMG Models in February 2021.  Additionally, she remarked about her singing, saying that she has denied $17,000,000 in offers, as she is conscious of who she receives commissions from.  

Big things are to come from Gorman.  Her first two books will release in September, a continuation of a promising future for the young and conscientious poet.
