'...Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of the 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 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 fiance 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.'

When Vogue dropped the images and an associated video of their time doing the cover shoot last week, I'm pretty sure the internet imploded on itself.  Do I personally think that Kimye represents all that is wrong with America, perhaps; but. like it or not, these are the times that we live in and though I shook my head at Ms. Wintour's choice, I have to say her subsequent statement has a point.  And it's certainly a good way to get that glossy to fly off the shelves.

So what do you think? Do you like Kimye? What about their Vogue cover?

  2. Gotta say, not a huge fan of Kanye with his little attitude but I love her, I get the choice for the magazine and beyond all of that, who can top Annie Leibovitz?! The pictures are beyond stunning! The photography is just to die for!

  3. I'm a fan of neither, but the cover is really beautiful and understated...unlike its subjects.

  4. Totally agree - she is bringing a whole new readership to vogue now with people that are intrigued by them and or want to see the photos!! I'm sure the images inside are really stunning! he annoys me - but she's become much more bearable since she became a mom!

  5. Wow her statement definetely makes a lot if sense. I don't like kimye but I do love me some kardashians. I'll admit I can't stop watching them. I think the cover was very tastefully done though.
