Why are people turning themselves into Vogue cover stars?
Who doesn’t want to one day be on the cover of Vogue? TikTok stars are taking the initiative and doing it themselves
TikTokkers are editing their photoshoots and selfies to look like they’re on the cover of Vogue magazine. Some have taken old photoshoots and edited the Vogue logo into them, and others have taken artistic pictures especially to suit the trend.
Montages are usually posted alongside a remix of Out West by JACKBOYS feat. Young Thug or with the tag #voguechallenge.
The challenge seemingly started on Twitter after Vogue EIC Anna Wintour said publicly that the legendary American publication has not done enough to 'give space to black creators.'
Since then, black creators have taken matters into their own hands and started sharing their own images photoshopped to look as if they were featured on the cover of the mag.
If Anna Wintour won't come to them, these Black women are gonna reimagine and manifest their own Vogue covers for themselves. Welcome to the #VogueChallenge #BlackGirlMagic— Hello Beautiful (@HelloBeautiful) June 10, 2020

hey guys, the vogue cover challenge started as a way for Black people to challenge anna wintour claiming she hasn’t found a way to make space for Black creativity in her 30 year tenure. it’s not the space of non-Black artists to turn it into an art challenge.— addienardo da binchi (@klimtsonian) June 10, 2020
Since then. the trend has moved to TikTok and other social media platforms with a slew of creators taking part in the challenge.
Spanish creator Papi Kunno mixed things up with colorful backgrounds.
Algún día lograré poder ser la portada de VogueGimme clout pls - i.i.i.i.i.il
Even James Charles got in on the action with a very avant-garde imagined cover..
It's great to see creators uniting over a fun challenge which aims to include everyone. We hope Anna Wintour is taking some notes!
