Kim Kardashian has finally made her way to Vogue Magazine. Kim and her fiancée, Kanye West nabbed the April 2014 cover. The monochromatic cover was shot by Annie Leibovitz. The reality star posed in a 50′s inspired wedding dress, while Kanye sported his usual black on black look.
While Kimye may have finally gotten their wish, this Vogue cover isn’t sitting too well with some people. Many took to twitter with one question for Anna Wintour, ” Why?”
But the hashtag at the bottom of the cover could explain Anna’s decision. Apparently the two are the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple
The editor-in-chief responded to the backlash in her editor’s letter. Catch what she had to say below:
“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.”
There you have it Sweeties. Anna said it was Vogue’s decision to put Kim on the cover and not Kanye’s campaign to get his love the cover.
Are we buying it? I’m not.
