Anna Wintour Defends Her Decision To Put Kanye West & Kim Kardashian On The Cover Of Vogue Magazine


Kim Kardashian finally had her life long dreams come true thanks to her baby daddy Kanye West. For the past couple years her mother/manager Kris Jenner has been trying to get her on the cover of Vogue Magazine but it was Kanye West who got the job done. A few months ago Yeezy told radio personality Ryan Seacrest that Kim should be on the cover of Vogue because she is the most intriguing woman in the world right now.


And it looks like he was able to use his star power to convince Anna Wintour to feature him, his baby mama and their daughter North West on the upcoming issue of Vogue Magazine.


Of course after the cover leaked online the magazine received a lot of criticism for the cover however shortly after Anna released a statement justifying her decision.

“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.”
