Kim Kardashian covers Vogue Magazine’s latest issue, with the tagline, “Kim’s New World: I’ve Chosen Myself.”
Other feature stories include a testimony from African-American writer Janell Okwodu about how fashion finally made space for her. Missing was any mention of one of Vogue’s first, most effervescent, and pioneering Black editors, Andre Leon Talley.

Perhaps Andre’s tribute is inside? Or maybe this issue had already gone to print before he could be included. The magazine world works differently from the digital world–many covers and cover features are decided and concretized 3 months in advance. Let’s hope his tribute (or maybe even cover) are coming soon.
What do you think?
