Anna Wintour: Why I Picked Kim Kardashian And Kanye West For Vogue

Anna Wintour explains her decision to give Kim Kardashian and Kanye West their upcoming Vogue cover in the issue’s editor’s letter.
She makes it clear that the controversial choice was hers — and shoots down those rumors that West demanded she put Kardashian on the cover .
“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,” writes Wintour.
She continues, “I think we can all agree on the fact that the role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?).”
Wintour declares, “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,” she explains.
The famed editor goes on to say, “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.”
The Kimye Vogue will hit newsstands soon.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is NOT happy about the upcoming Kim Kardashian-Kanye West Vogue .
Shortly after it was announced that the duo would appear on the fashion bible’s April 2014 cover , the actress expressed her disappointment on Twitter.
Gellar tweeted, “Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me??? ”
Ouch .
It seems as though quite a few critics are with Gellar, though, as her diss has been retweeted hundreds of times, and as Vogue readers hammer editor Anna Wintour for her decision to put Kimye on the cover .

It finally happened! After months and months of endless rumors and debates, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West landed themselves the highly coveted cover of Vogue . The superstar couple appear on the front of the fashion bible’s April issue — and it’s everything you’d expect it to be and more.
Kardashian, 33, is resplendent in a strapless cream-colored gown that looks remarkably like a wedding dress.
Her dark hair is swept into a chic, slick updo, and her massive engagement ring is on full display. West, 36, stands behind her in a suit, his chin resting affectionately on her shoulder.
“Kim & Kanye,” the cover line reads. “Their fashionable life and surreal times. #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple”
Along with the stunning cover image, shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the magazine released a behind-the-scenes video, which shows the couple posing in a series of high-fashion outfits and kissing against several picturesque backdrops.
