Vogue announced a limited number of special edition magazines will be published for inauguration day featuring Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

The magazine’s special reprint edition follows backlash over Vogue’s decision to use an informal photo of Harris for the printed January cover.

“In celebration of this historic moment, we will be publishing a limited number of special edition #InaugurationDay issues, featuring Vice President-elect @kamalaharris,” a statement shared on Instagram said.

The magazine faced backlash over its decision to use a photo of Harris dressed informally and wearing converse over a photo of the vice-president elect wearing a powder blue suit, Page Six reported. Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour defended the magazine’s decision to use the relaxed portrait of Harris. (RELATED: Vogue Defends Kamala Harris Cover Photo Switch)

“When the two images arrived at Vogue, all of us felt very, very strongly that the less formal portrait of the Vice President-elect really reflected the moment that we were living in which we are all in the midst — as we still are  — of the most appalling pandemic that is taking lives by the minute,” Wintour told The New York Times.

“And we felt to reflect this tragic moment in global history, a much less formal picture, something that was very, very accessible and approachable and real, really reflected the hallmark of the Biden-Harris campaign and everything that they are trying to, and I’m sure will, achieve,” the statement from Wintour continued.
