The world scratched their heads this year when the main bitch herself Anna Wintour placed America’s Not-So-Sweethearts Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue.The cover caused a huge controversy with many wondering WHY Anna would put the two of them on the front and now we have an answer!
While speaking to Fashionista, Anna admits that the cover was used as a way to get people talking – check it out:
I see the role of Vogue to reflect what’s going on in the culture. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It’s such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she’s part of the establishment.
I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us.
So what do you think? Was Anna throwing shade or did she mean it as a compliment?
