Who doesn’t want to one day be on the cover of Vogue? TikTok stars are taking the initiative and doing it themselves.

What’s the trend?

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 appears to have spread from Twitter where black creators are making their own renditions of Vogue covers after Anna Wintour said that Vogue had not done enough to “give space to Black creators.”

Who’s in on it?

Creators with a host of photoshoots they can already pick from are lucky enough to be able to smash this trend.

James Charles, Amelie Zilber, Danielle Cohn, and Riley Hubatka are among the most popular accounts who are editing themselves onto Vogue covers – although these four are already models.
