Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Shock World With Vogue Cover
Either dreams do come true or hell just froze over. Kim Kardashian has finally landed on the cover of Vogue magazine. Most believe that a year-long PR campaign spearheaded by Kanye West, is what convinced editor Anna Wintour to give the reality TV star some shine.
The cover, featuring Kanye and Kim, was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibowitz. Kim took to Twitter to announce her excitement, tweeting:
“This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!”
Wintour also released a statement debunking the rumors and revealing that Kanye did NOT beg her for 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. 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.”
