Jill Biden will feature the Vogue cover in August, after a four-year break during the Trump era, marking a return of America’s first lady on the magazine cover.

Former US President Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Trump was snubbed during his time as head of state.

Former first lady never made it on the magazine and no reason was ever given. Trump complained about it in 2020.

Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour accused 'Trump as dishonest.'

News of Jill featuring the magazine sparked a debate.

Some supporters voiced for Melania and pointed that she deserved to feature the Vogue cover as she was a fashion model.

Melania and Donald Trump got married in 2005.

Earlier, she modelled in Milan and Parisc and also launched her skincare and jewellery line in 2010.


Several people accused and felt Vogue is favouring Jill over Melania.

Another person said: “The magazine is mean for not putting Melania on the cover.”

Melania’s former friend and aide Stephanie Winston Wolkoff claimed that the former first lady called off a request by Vogue to interview her for a profile in the magazine.

According to Winston Wolkoff, Melania was recorded in 2018 as saying: “Vogue said like, oh, we want to do a profile. F*** you, profile. I don’t need any profile. Yeah, what I need another profile?

“It might be a cover. I’m like, might be a cover? I don’t give a f*** about Vogue and any magazine.”

Numerous Vogue readers and fans defended the magazine’s decision, describing Jill as ‘beautiful’ and ‘classy.’

One person tweeted, “Jill is beautiful inside out. She is intelligent. We are proud to have her the First Lady of the United States.”
