Next up, Beyoncé’s mum, Tina Knowles-Lawson, has criticised American Vogue for its lack of Black photographers. In an Instagram post praising British Vogue Editor Edward Enninful, Tina said:
“Kudos to this wonderful man … for boldly putting out beautiful activists on the cover. When will American Vogue step up and hire more Black photographers for cover shoots? We’re waiting…”
And to end today’s updates, Dior has unveiled its AW20 campaign, inspired by a photographic series by feminist artist Marcella Campagnano.
