American poet, Amanda Gorman has been featured on a cover for Vogue Magazine.
Gorman who is also known as an activist, is the first poet that will adorn the cover of the prestigious magazine.
It was such a remarkable moment for the Harvard graduate and youth poet laureate, after she was announced as the personality that will be on the cover of Vogue Magazine.
In reaction to this development, Gorman expressed her feelings with words, in an Instagram post.
Gorman said, “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.”

The front photo looks appealing with her Louis Vuitton blanket, styled as a dress, cinched with a wide and intricate gold belt.
The garment’s vibrant pattern is inspired by African textiles and was designed by Virgil Abloh — Louis Vuitton’s first Black artistic director.
On her poetry journey, Gorman, 23, became famous after her powerful reading of her poem “The Hill We Climb” at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.
She is still doing more work in the world of poetry. In September, Gorman will release two books — a collection of her poetry, “The Hill We Climb and Other Poems” and a kid’s picture book “Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem” — which have already topped the bestseller lists on Amazon.
