What? Like we weren’t going to weigh in on the latest Vogue cover controversy? Darlings, if you thought otherwise, you need to brush up on your T Lo. We weighed in on Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris’ history-making covers for Vogue on twitter yesterday, but a podcast is a much better forum for us to talk about our take, based on our years of covering Vogue and our knowledge as to how things work for them.
Taking into account Robin Givhan’s excellent summary and take on the controversy in the Washington Post this morning, we give our thoughts on what sorts of creative and aesthetic decisions were made and why we think a marriage between Vogue and a Vice-President (especially one like Kamala, who defines her public persona by her approachability and relatability) was never going to produce results that did either of them justice.
Then, we have a few things to say (most of them negative) about the news that 75% of the cast of Sex and the City is coming back for a reboot called And Just Like That.
Oh, honey. Words were said.
