When Vogue magazine published its April 2008 issue, featuring on its cover the Annie Liebovitz photograph of NBA all-star LeBron James and Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, representatives for the magazine noted two things:
First: It was the first time in its 122-year history that Vogue had featured an African American man on its cover.
