Poet Amanda Gorman is the first poet to grace the cover of Vogue Magazine. Check out the photos and what the Inauguration Day poet has been up to.
The Inauguration Day Poet, Amanda Gorman, has been busy since she amazed audiences with her poem "The Hill We Climb" on President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's Inauguration.
Gorman has become the first poet to be featured on the cover of Vogue for their May issue. The outlet shared a few gorgeous photos of Gorman posing in different dresses.
One photo that will surely blow away the magazine's readers is Gorman posing in a green and orange African-inspired Louis Vuitton gown designed by Virgil Abloh, which celebrates his African Heritage.
The 23-year-old poet shared a collection of photos on her own Instagram feed. She wrote a lengthy caption thanking the designers of the garments and the photographer Annie Leibovitz. She started the caption with:
"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?"
Another look the fashion outlet posted was of Gorman posing in a gorgeous off-white dress. The dress was made from an intricate lace patterned fabric. It featured a deep v-neckline and wide shoulder straps.
Gorman was seated for the photo. She sat with her legs stretched forward. One was slightly bent and over the floor she was sitting on, while she rested her elbow on her other knee.
The beautiful poet gently smiled toward the camera. Her hair was styled in a high-up do. The stunning look was accessorized with a headband that had white roses on it. Gabriella Karefa-Johnson styled the whole look.
Vogue shared an entry from Gorman's personal diary from Inauguration Day and the day she shared her inspirational poem in the caption of the gorgeous cover photo. It read:
"I’ve learned that it’s okay to be afraid. And what’s more, it’s okay to seek greatness. That does not make me a black hole seeking attention. It makes me a supernova."
Another look she wore was a stunning floor-length yellow dress that had an interesting banana-leaf-like pattern. Yellow is definitely Gorman's color. Fashion lovers were blown away by her yellow Inauguration Day look.
She had chosen to wear a chic Prada coat in a vibrant shade of yellow. Gorman paired the look with a chunky red hairband that really made an impact on her look.
Gorman recently shared a photo of herself wearing a yellow dress while holding her new book, "The Hill We Climb." The poet is set to release two books, and they are currently on Amazon's best-selling list.
Besides being a fashion icon, Gorman has used her newly gained platform to discuss important social issues. In March, she shared on Twitter that she was racially profiled by a security guard and wrote about the interaction's social implications.
