Nearly three months after Amanda Gorman made history at President Joe Biden’s inauguration, her meteoric rise shows no sign of slowing.

The national youth poet laureate sat down with Vogue for its May issue, appearing in two different looks for alternate covers of the magazine. She was photographed by Annie Leibowitz in Dior Haute Couture as well as a Louis Vuitton Kente gown designed by Virgil Abloh, who is of Ghanaian descent, reports the Huffington Post.

Vogue unveiled both covers on social media Wednesday. Vogue tweeted about the 23-year-old that “Gorman has become so much more than a literary star. Meet the phenomenon in the making.”
