Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson has joined the ranks of leftist women glamorously featured on the pages of Vogue magazine.
Like First Lady Jill Biden and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Jackson was photographed by Vogue's Annie Leibovitz, whose most recent project focused on Ukraine's First Lady Olena Zelenska.
The photographs show Jackson posing at the Lincoln Memorial dressed in an a brown Aliétte coat. In one of the photos, she leans against a pillar and gazes up at Lincoln's second inaugural address etched on the wall.
Leibovitz also photographed singer Rihanna for Vogue in April, actress Olivia Wilde in December 2021, and former Hilary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin in October 2021.
Vogue has also featured Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Vice President Kamala Harris on its cover, but abstained from featuring former First Lady Melania Trump, First Lady Laura Bush, or First Lady Barbara Bush, or any of Trump's high profile female press secretaries on its cover.
"They're biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it's so obvious,"
Melania Trump said of Vogue in an interview after she left the White House. "And I think American people and everyone sees it. It was their decision, and I have much more important things to do - and I did in the White House - than being on the cover of Vogue."
Asked why she is overtly partisan in featuring Democratic women over Republican women on the magazine's cover, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour said in 2019 that she felt she must stand up for what she believes.
"If you're talking about the first lady [Michelle Obama] or Senator [Kamala] Harris, obviously these are women that we feel are icons and inspiring to women from a global perspective,"
"I also feel even more strongly now that this is not a time to try - and I think one has to be fair, one has to look at all sides - but I don't think it's a moment not to take a stand,"
she continued. "I think you can't be everything to everybody and I think it's a time that we live in a world, as you would well know, of fake news ... [and] those of us that work at Conde Nast believe that you have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a point of view."
Wintour, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Daily Wire, neglected to speak about Melania Trump as the first lady in a July 2019 podcast interview where she was asked to name something in Trump's wardrobe that she admires.
"Well, I think First Lady Michelle Obama was really so incredible in every decision she made about fashion,"
Wintour responded, pivoting from Trump. "She supported young American designers. She supported designers, indeed, from all over the world. She was the best ambassador this country could possibly have, in many ways, obviously way beyond fashion... "
"But she's not the First Lady now," Wintour's interviewer reminded the Vogue editor-in-chief. "What about the one you have now?"
Wintour finished: "And for me, she is the example I admire."
