LeBron James’ Vanity Fair cover gives richness and a refreshing counter-narrative to stereotypes

Last week, Black Twitter ended very berserk Vanity Fair A recent cover story about LeBron James and his family. Social media users were not only in awe of the stunning images in the feature, but were also in awe of the representation of black excellence that isn’t as popular in mainstream media as some hope. Photographer Gillian Loeb posted a literal, picture-perfect spread that was a stark departure from the hyper-violent, hyper-aggressive images of blackness that are common in all major media, social media, film and television.

Love him or hate him, LeBron James doesn’t play any game. Entering his 20th season in the NBA while firmly believing in his place as a billionaire. On top of all this, his sons Bryce and Bruni are making names for themselves in the basketball world. With Bruni off to college and Bryce entering his sophomore year in the Sierra Canyon. Last but not least, Savannah James isn’t playing WAG Razia – and she’s eating the fruits of her NBA star’s work. As a businesswoman and philanthropist in her own right, Savannah founded I PROMise Makeover – an annual event that provides underprivileged teens with prom dresses in 2018. The LeBron James Family Foundation also donated $41 million in scholarship money to University of Akron students.

Needless to say, the James family is making strides and building a legacy, which is why vanity fiR has chosen to cover family for the upcoming October/November issue. And the released photos were nothing short of pure extravagance. One of the photos included Bronny, Bryce, Zhuri, Lebron, and Savannah – displayed in front of art from the Nino Mier Gallery in their dining room. In the stunning photo, LeBron, Savannah, Bronnie, Bryce and Zuri Gucci are dressed by Matthew Henson.

In another photo posing in front of a Porsche 918 Spyder, Savannah brings a sexy, sophisticated feel to reality—a black lace gown with a plunging Chanel neckline, Gianvito Rossi shoes and a Bvlgari necklace; LeBron compliments him wearing a stylish all-black Tom Ford number. LeBron’s mother, Gloria, also joined the family for the photo shoot, and Zhuri stole the show in every photo she was supervising.
