American Poet Amanda Gorman Adorns Beautiful Kente For Cover of Vogue Magazine

Amanda Gorman, the American poet who rose to global fame when she performed her Hills We Climb poem at the inaugural ceremony of 46th President of America, Joe Biden, will become the first poet to feature in the prestigious Vogue magazine. The covers for next month’s edition are already out and Gorman appears wearing Dior Haute Couture and a stunning Louis Vuitton Kente gown designed by Virgil Abloh, who is of Ghanaian heritage.

Gorman’s feature in the magazine is titled the rise and rise of Amanda Gorman and will celebrate her achievements as a poet, activist and lover of fashion. This is Gorman’s second big cover since she read her poem, “The Hill We Climb,” at the presidential inauguration; she also covered Time magazine’s February issue.

In a tweet sent on Wednesday [April 7, 2021], Gorman expressed excitement at her latest accomplishment and said of her outfit that it reminded her of her African heritage.

“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. What a joy to do this cover while wearing a piece designed by groundbreaking Black designer @virgilabloh that honors my heritage,” She wrote on twitter.
