First Lady Jill Biden has landed the August cover for American Vogue after the fashion magazine snubbed for a cover former First Lady Melania Trump during her four years in the White House.

The cover, released on Tuesday, features Jill Biden in an Oscar de la Renta floral dress with Tiffany & Co. earrings on an outside balcony of the White House.

Shot by famous celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, the cover is part of a multi-photo spread where Mrs. Biden poses alongside her husband, President Joe Biden.

The cover comes after Vogue infamously refused to offer a cover to Melania Trump during her time in the White House.

It has been reported that Mrs. Trump turned down Vogue twice when they offered her a profile in the magazine but did not promise to feature her on the cover. In leaked audio recordings last year, Mrs. Trump said she did not “give a fuck about Vogue.”

Mrs. Trump graced the cover in February 2005, wearing her couture John Galliano for Dior wedding dress.

Television personality Rachel Campos-Duffy was unamused by Mrs. Biden’s Vogue cover, calling it “fashion affirmative action” and declaring the fashion magazine “a joke.”

Mrs. Biden’s Vogue cover comes months after the fashion magazine put Vice President Kamala Harris on the cover which garnered backlash as she was featured in Converse sneakers. Harris reportedly complained about the cover photo and Vogue editors decided to release a revised edition featuring Harris in another photo taken by photographer Tyler Mitchell.
