A poetic photoshoot for Amanda Gorman

Amanda Gorman made her rise to fame as the first National Youth Poet Laureate as an activist and is now building a reputation as a fashion icon. The young poet laureate and activist is featured on the cover of Vogue making a political fashion statement.

The young Harvard graduate was recognized as the nation’s first youth poet laureate using spoken word as a form of peaceful activism rising to fame following her performance of her poem “The Hill We Climb” during the Biden administration inauguration ceremony. Vogue is celebrating her success featuring Gorman on the cover of the May edition with an in-depth interview about the inspirational rising star.

Gorman graces the cover wearing a Louis Vuitton Kente gown designed by Virgil Abloh that drew influence from important cultural unity across the African diaspora. The Kente gown features a crossover of traditional African textile prints with the LV monogram.

More of Gorman’s style was featured on the second cover styled in Dior Haute Couture with more fashion statements in the May edition. This Vogue edition will give Gorman a chance to reveal more about her ambitions and passions of having the role of the National Youth Poet Laureate.
