In a bid to turn us green with ENVY! Vogue published their April issue with the dynamic duo of Kanye and Kim as their cover stars!
The cover led to split reactions between fans and critics and numerous parodies. Some Vogue fans took to offence to Kim’s presence and openly announced they would be cancelling their subscriptions. Ouch!
A statement from Kim’s number one fan–Kanye last fall said : There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue.”
And months later, as if by magic Kim can now add a Vogue cover to her extensive collection. Following reports that Kanye begged the editor, Anna Wintour for the cover. The editor defended are choice with the following statement:
“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, 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 fiancee 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.”
Honestly, what are your thoughts? Did Vogue make the right choice? Or will you be cancelling your subscription?
