Sha’Carri Richardson US Vogue August 2024

Anna Wintour has been at the head of the American Fashion for almost four decades. During this time, we have certainly seen personalities from the world of sports as cover stars. From LeBron James and Ashton Eaton to Naomi Osaka and Simone Biles, all have been Fashion Cover stars during Wintour’s tenure. Serena Williams has graced the American fashion bible four times, and we will never forget the Marion Jones cover of 2001. More recently, Wintour promoted Coco Gauff and Sha’Carri Richardson is credited as FashionThe digital cover of for August 2024. Ahead of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, the American athlete poses for photographer Luis Alberto Rodriguez at the starting line. In the striking cover image, Richardson is styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois in a bodysuit and puffy skirt from the Ralph Lauren collection, combined with a pair of gold Nike sneakers.

Read reactions from theFashionSpot forum members below:

“It’s terrible,” Mepps immediately cried.

“American Fashion always had trouble creating decent covers with black athletes. Not a flattering image at all,” said forum member Thiago.

“I just want a break from the athletes and obvious Anna Wintour favorites. PLEASE!” explained tomtakesphotos.

Also quick to question FashionThe latest from was KoV. “The cover image looks to me like it could be on a billboard for Nike or Gatorade or something. It’s a dynamic image, but I don’t think it’s a Fashion Cover.”

MModa, however, couldn’t have disagreed more. “I love everything about the cover. Love the colors,” they raved.

Lola701 shared the same positive sentiment, commenting: “I like the cover. It works as a digital cover and fits well with the Olympics. The composition is really the cover’s strength.”
