The Latest in Fashion News: Anna Wintour Responds to Critics Regarding Kim & Kanye's Vogue Cover
So. Ms. Wintour professionally snapped back to all the critics of Vogue's latest cover with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. She covers the begging rumors and dishes on whose idea it really was to put them on the cover. Read it 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.”
I personally don't buy it, especially when Kanye openly
begged advocated for Kim to get the cover on various media outlets. However, it comes with the territory, I suppose. You can't really play the blame game when you're the editor-in-chief. By mid April we wil be talking about the next big cover.
What are your thoughts?
