#SoCool | Africans Are Slaying the #VogueChallenge

The Vogue challenge, which originated on TikTok, shows people's pictures as on a cover of Vogue. The challenge is also spreading to other social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. In order to nail your Vogue challenge,  just need to take a photo of yourself and  edit the Vogue logo into your photo. Don't forget to use your creativity. Just to help you a little bit, find down below 5 original Vogue logos to set you apart.

This challenge was created as a response to Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour's internal memo where she expressed her regret that Vogue has been “hurtful and intolerant,” and didn’t do enough to support its black staff and designers.  She added,

“I want to start by acknowledging your feelings and expressing my empathy towards what so many of you are going through: sadness, hurt, and anger too. I want to say this especially to the Black members of our team — I can only imagine what these days have been like. But I also know that the hurt, and violence, and injustice we’re seeing and talking about have been around for a long time. Recognizing it and doing something about it is overdue,”  

In Addition to that statement, Vogue UK dedicated the July 2020 issue to celebrate "the millions of people in the UK who, at the height of the pandemic, and in the face of danger, put on their uniforms and went to work." They surprisingly put regular people on the cover of the magazine.

Although the internet found Wintour's excuse to be not enough, having regular people on the cover of Vogue UK became a bigger inspiration. With Black Lives Matter movements spreading around the globe, the Vogue challenge is showing the diversity of beauty and hopefully, Vogue will take note and be more inclusive.
