translated from Spanish: [FOTO] Cover of Kamala Harris in Vogue generated controversy in the US.

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris made it to the February cover of Vogue magazine, but her team says there’s a problem because the image of what will be second in charge of the U.S. government is not the one both sides agreed upon, according to their team. Instead of the light blue suit Harris wore for the cover session, the first African-American vice president appears in more casual clothing and with Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers, which she sometimes wore on the campaign trail. Harris’ team was unafferable that the photographs had been changed until they leaked on Saturday night, according to one person involved in the negotiations on how Harris will appear on the cover. Harris’ office refused to comment and the person spoke on Sunday on condition that they remain anonymous. In a statement, Vogue said she chose Harris’ more casual image for the cover because the photograph captured «its authentic and accessible nature, which we think is one of the hallmarks of the Biden-Harris administration.» But the magazine said it published both images as digital covers to «respond to the seriousness of this moment in history and the role she has to take to move our country forward.» Harris, who is of Jamaican and Indian descent posed in the blue suit in front of a gold background for the magazine cover. He also posed more casually with trousers, a sack and tennis in front of a pink and green background for photographs to be used inside the magazine, the person said. Pink and green are the colors of Harris’ college sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha.Vogue posted both images online, but Harris’ photo with tennis will reach the cover of the fashion bible in its print edition. The person familiar with the negotiations said Harris’ team expressed disappointment to Vogue about the decision for the magazine. The cover also created a social media scandal as people were disappointed about how the magazine decided to present the first female vice president on its cover. Harris will be sworn in as vice president on January 20.
