Exclusive: Why Nigel Barker Says Anna Wintour Knows What She’s Doing With Kimye Cover
Nigel Barker, photographer and host of Oxygen’s The Face, says Anna Wintour is having the last laugh over her decision to put Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue magazine. The decision was met with mixed reaction from the fashion world, including The Face executive producer Naomi Campbell who laughed when asked about the “Keeping up with Kimye” spread.
“I’ve got to tell you that Anna Wintour knows exactly what she’s doing,” Nigel told HipHollywood in an exclusive interview. “It’s a very successful magazine and interestingly enough, by putting [Kanye and Kim] on the cover, what has [Anna] done? She’s put Vogue back in vogue.”
Nigel’s response is a diplomatic one, Sarah Michelle Gellar was less tactful with her Twitter response:
“Well … I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???”
We’re not, but are any of you?
