The first thing crossing my mind when the news that Kimye to be on the cover of Vogue was, "Well, finally there's someone who can tell the ice queen what to do". And it's in the matter of eho's gonna be on the Vogue cover, a hail priviledge for any entertainer. But just a moment did I enjoy that thoughts.
Wintour wrote the following in the issue's "Editor's Letter," obtained by OTRC.com on Friday, March 21:
"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 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."
"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."
Whatever you say, Mama. As long as Grace is editing at least one spread, I won't stop subscribing. Because, you know, that's all what matters.
Signorfandi, somehow it felt like a big fat lie, the letter,..
Ps. Hashtag on the cover? Srsly?
