Anna Wintour Finally Puts Kim Kardashian On VOGUE Cover, BUT Not By Herself…
Kanye is happy that Kim Kardashian finally makes her debut on Vogue. However, we can clearly see the Anna Wintour shade of not giving Kim the cover alone. It’s a beautiful cover, but it screams, “I’m only doing this for you, Kanye, and I’m still not really here for Kim.” It would be nice if Kim made the cover by her own merits like Rihanna or FLOTUS Michelle Obama, but at least she’s finally made it, well kind of…
This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!
On the bright side, Kim said she wanted that cover, and Kanye West got his baby the cover. Anna Wintour defends the cover with a preemptive strike, as she knew a backlash would ensue from the fashion community. Check out her defense of the cover below. Wintour is clearly trying to please everyone and has put her reputation on the line for a dear friend.
Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)
As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.
There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
