Kim Kardashian and Kanye West cover the April issue of Vogue (update)

kimkanye
All that schmoozing with Anna Wintour must have paid off for Kim and Kanye, because they cover the April issue of Vogue. We’ve heard for months that Kanye has been trying to get Kim a cover, and that he’s been pitching a wedding cover shot by Mario Testino. It seemed like a pipe dream, and like Kim would get some international Vogue cover in an attempt to appease Kanye, but his pleas must have worked.

Annie Leibovitz shot this, but it looks like Kanye otherwise got his wish. So far all Vogue has released are the cover and a behind the scenes video set to Kanye’s Bound 2. It’s like an alternate music video for Bound 2, only classier. The video features Kim in two different huge wedding gowns (the one on the cover is Lanvin) and also includes scenes with baby North. There’s Kanye looking like he’s about to bang Kim on the side of his Lamborghini, there’s Kim and Kanye in a private jet with North, and there are scenes of Kim lounging around in her various wedding gowns.

So is this a prelude to some huge E! wedding special? Kanye and Kim are allegedly getting married in Paris right around the time the Cannes film festival wraps at the end of May. You know it’s going to be epic and that this is just the start.

Update by Kaiser: I think it’s funny that Anna Wintour gave in and put Kim on the cover, but ONLY with Kanye. I can’t wait to see the full photoshoot. BTW: Kim’s dress on the cover is Lanvin. Vogue has also released some quotes from Wintour which are… fascinating:

“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.”

Bullsh-t! Kanye totally begged Anna. I also think it’s “interesting” that Vogue dropped this on a Friday afternoon rather than a Monday or Tuesday, which is when a cover usually drops.

Here are some screenshots from Vogue’s video.

      Yes, she looks vomitous. Awkward!

      It looks as though the makeup artist and hairstylist did their worst work just to protest these particular subjects. And Wintour – who wouldn’t know style if it bit her on her hammertoes – was oblivious to recognizing there was mutiny at play here.

      • jane16 says:

        Agree, that makeup is godawful. Who would want makeup like that for their wedding? And her hair looks like its covered in shoe polish. Hideous look all in all. Its almost laughable, if it wasn’t so disturbing to see how low Vogue has sunk.

    • atrain says:

      I am right behind you ready to vomit.

      Why does she look so awkward? Kanye looks good, but Kim looks like she has to fart. For a girl that has been photographed a million times, this certainly isn’t her best look.

      • jane16 says:

        She always looks awkward. She would never have been a model if she was born in my generation, it wasn’t enough to be tall and slim and have an arresting face, you had to have “life” in front of the camera. She always has a dead expression–it always looks the same.

        Another point I’ve always noticed about kim and her heinous family. Whenever you have seen an actress or model in real life, they always look thinner, and sometimes shorter in real life. The camera really does add 10 lbs. But whenever you see any of these kows, your first thought is wow, did they put on weight or something? They are always fatter in real life, bulging out of their clothes in the tackiest fashion. Its because they have deals with these papz and sites like tmz and you only see heavily photoshopped versions. Everything about this horrible family is fake.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        She probably has no expression because she can’t move her face with all the plastic surgery she’s had!

      • mm says:

        Because she is used to paparazzi not professional photographers.

  1. idk says:

    She’s made “getting married” an actual occupation. I wonder how she feels knowing she didn’t deserve this cover and she’s only on it because of Kanye begging Anna.

    It should say Kanye and Kim. How did Kanye allow Kim’s name to be first lol?

  2. shellybean says:

    OMG! No wonder she’s been walking around looking so smug (IMO).

    • janie says:

      Oh my, my… It happened! Hell froze over! I’m surprised Vogue’s site hasn’t crashed? Too many people still at work! Lol!!

      • Skyblue says:

        Ha ha ha! My first thoughts as well…hell HAS frozen over! Might be my chance to draw a winning lotto ticket.

      • cheesecake says:

        Is it the end of days?? The apocalypse?? Nostrodamus predicted this… “And the Wintour Dragon will yield her large empire too an implanted, fame-whore…”

        I actually feel like a fool, right now!! Legit!!
        I was on some, “HA!!! Wintour would NEVER EVER let that Kardash anywhere near her mag… But no!!
        I had to ignore the signs of the Apocalypse..
        *Gasp* James Franco really DID sleep with Lindsay Lohan!!

        I got to go, guys!! It’s the end of the world as we know it!!

    • gefeylich says:

      How can you tell? Her face is in a perpetual Botox rictus – if she has any feelings, her face will no longer give them away.

      That said, I wonder what Kanye had to do to make this happen. My guess: he appealed to someone other than Wintour, brandishing photos/videos of the “dead woman, live boy” variety. PMK knows the way to those things so it was probably easy.

  3. lizzy says:

    Funny how even though she got a cover Wintour wouldn’t give it to her solo. Thats the only positive I can see.

    Also….do you think Victoria Beckham has exploded yet?

  4. Cali says:

    Anna has just killed Vogue and lost all credibility.

  5. Bgirl81 says:

    If you heard guttural screaming that seemed to be coming from the Boston area, don’t panic. It’s just the noise I made when I saw this….my brain exploded, my blood pressure skyrocketed and I probably peed a little bit. How appropriate.

  6. Skittles says:

    I don’t see how they can view this as some sort of accomplishment when they basically had to put a gun to Anna’s head to get the cover. They are still considered to be laughing stocks in the eyes of the public. A Vogue cover STILL won’t change that.

  7. MaiGirl says:

    SO disappointed in Wintour! I was really hoping this wouldn’t happen. Now Kim probably feels fully legit. Cannot believe how much mileage this bish got out of a nasty sex tape. These two gross me out in ways I can barely articulate.

  8. paola says:

    Her smug expression deserves a slap. I’m done with Anna Wintour. She gave up too soon.

    Have you heard of what Kanye is trying to get Kim as wedding gift?
    10 Burger King’s shops across France, Italy and England.

    ROTFL!

  9. Teri says:

    Vogue has officially Jumped the Shark!

  10. Monkey Towz says:

    I wonder how many issues will sell here in America. Anna Wintour has turned Vogue into a joke. I knew these two idiots would get their way on this one.

  11. boredbrit says:

    OMG LOL. SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN ON THE COVER!! Haha this is jokes.

  12. Huh says:

    Nooooooooooooooo!
    I hope this issue sells 0 copies

    • sienna says:

      +1,000,000

      Thank gawd for Town & Country

    • FLORC says:

      But it will sell well. Just as these threadds of Kim get tons of comments. Kim is making loads because people will climb over eachother to hate on her. So much so that they’ll buy mags and read the articles.

      Do you think you can hate her enough to pay no attention to her? Because ats the only way she’ll go away.

      • word says:

        I don’t think the Kardashians sell as good as they used to. Their ratings are down, people are sick of them. People who hate them won’t spend any money on them. Posting comments on blogs is free and it’s just a way to past time. The people who bought their Kardashian Kollection line from Sears are the ones who might buy this Vogue issue, but their Kollection didn’t do well in sales either. I guess we’ll see…

      • rlh says:

        @FLORC:
        You nailed it. That is the sinister genius of PMK, she understands this better than anyone: the fact that what we hate grabs our attention as much as, if not more than, what we love. PMK and the whole family are riding that aspect of our baser instincts to the bank. Take Kendall being a model walking the runways now: is Kendall “supermodel” material? No. She looks like allot of other working models who we would never know the names of. But because of the notoriety of her family when she is on the runway the pics are splashed all over the world. Who wins? The Kartrashian/Jenner clan, the designer, the sponsors, the investors. All making money off of our dislike. It is a pretty sordid and disgusting comment on our current culture and the worship of celebrity.
        Vogue probably got ALLOT of ad revenue for this issue for these reasons. And, as a gossip whore I am guilty of participating. But for the really egregious celebrities, like those that are so fame hungry they have no shame at all and no discernible talent, I make it a habit to not buy anything they are on the cover of.
        And RIP Vogue. Such a fall from the days of Diana Vreeland. One of her most favorite models of all time was Lauren Bacall. That’s all that needs to be said.

      • Kiddo says:

        I may snark on them here, but I have never watched one show, never bought one magazine with them on the cover, and I never will. So unless they make money from CB comments, I’m not contributing to their wealth and continuance. That said, I’d like to see the death of all reality TV.

      • Anne says:

        I, for one, would cancel a subscription over this.

      • Nina W says:

        I snark here but I no longer watch E! at all because of the K klan. I will never buy any product they sell or any magazine they appear on. They’re talentless and boring and I wish they would go away. I will never buy Vogue again either.

      • Ag-UK says:

        @Rlh
        I am with you if I don’t care for the person on the cover I will never buy it.
        Luckily here in The UK it’s not out yet and usually on the top shelves as the push the British mags. I go to the US in 2 weeks but won’t be on my list.

  13. JudyK says:

    See they managed to include the least important person in their relationship in one pic.

    Despicable.

    And Thumbs Down Anna Wintour. VOGUE used to be a classy magazine.

    • Anne says:

      Perhaps I shouldn’t be, but I’m honestly surprised and disappointed by this choice. I thought Vogue knew what they stood for. This cover has not elevated Kim’s profile. In my opinion, it is a thoroughly classless choice that has devalued Vogue. Ms. Kardashian has done well for herself and appeals to the tastes and values of a percentage of media consumers. Good for her – that is a type of accomplishment. Vogue, I had believed, stood for something more.

  14. stellalovejoydiver says:

    hahaha, oh Anna Wintour, how the mighty has fallen.

  15. Chrissy says:

    I can’t see myself buying Vogue again!

  16. Dani says:

    And there goes any credibility Vogue had left. Victoria won’t speak out because she’s classier than that and has an actual career and marriage that aren’t focused around being famous and rich. Kim also looks terrible in both dresses and the slick tight bun with heavy eye make up.

    Best part about this? North is cute.

  17. Anna says:

    I hate to break it to you guys but seriously other than this site, DM and maybe a few others people realize the impact Kim has had so they see why a Vogue cover could be appropriate lol people may not like all of her choices (especially her fashion choices because I sure don’t) but a lot of people do look to her for fashion now and as for makeup if it wasn’t for her contouring and bronzing over the years most girls wouldn’t be doing it now.. besides look who else they’ve had on the cover.. Lena, Tina, Blake.. Who are they really influencing in the fashion world?!?!
    People on CB may not respect Kanye but he definitely influences fashion, but maybe since some people don’t dress like he does or only go on a few gossip sites they don’t see it so they think the world feels like they do.
    Idk I’ll probably get a bunch of people telling me how wrong I am but to pretend that they aren’t influential and that everyone hates them because the comments on here always diss her is ridiculous.

    • idk says:

      Now a days, I don’t see too many positive comments about either of them. Also, make-up contouring is not a new thing. Kim did not invent it nor was she the first to talk about it. In fact, Tyra Banks talked about contouring years and years ago, when ANTM was at it’s peak.

    • Mary says:

      With all due respect I don’t believe a word of your post! :)

      • Kiddo says:

        Contouring was a ‘thing’ long before Kim. She didn’t invent the wheel. Also, I guess Sears is truly fashion forward, because that’s where the bottom draw Kardashian line is at.

        I don’t care how influential Kanye is in fashion. It will be a cold day in hell before I sport a vagina dress.

      • Dotty says:

        Also: run on sentences never go far in making a point (or points: tl;dr)

      • MCraw says:

        Lmao Mary, Mary quite contrary!

        Anna, you’re right. They are influential. Kanye’s Red October sneakers for Nike flew off the shelves within hrs recently and are being resold for multiple thousand dollars. You know Nike is kicking themselves.

        And yes, even tho she pancakes the makeup, Kim has changed the way women wear and view makeup on a much higher level. Anyone who wears makeup now attempts for that professionally done look like her, so touché on that.

        And how adorable is North? End of they day, I don’t care for Kim, but she’s harmless and makes reading comments funny as hell. And I’m a Kanye apologist, so I’m happy with how he manipulated the grandest bitch in the industry!

      • Peppa says:

        I will admit that I have had quite a few clients (mostly people under 30) come to me with pictures of Kim and want their hair cut or styled like hers. We have also had more than one bride bring a picture of Kim wanting their make-up done similar to hers in a particular photo. I don’t judge people at all for this because her hair and make up are usually done well. Her plastic surgery and fashion choices leave much to be desired, though. That being said, Vogue isn’t really for the masses. It is a high fashion magazine and nothing about Kim says high fashion.

    • lisa2 says:

      I understand your comment and actually agree with a much of what you said. I don’t follow Kim nor Kanye; but for people to think they are not popular; you are putting your head in the sand. They both have a huge fanbase. One that may not be on Gossip blogs but go and buy those products they wear. Many women (I DON”T UNDERSTAND) follow their fashion. Love seeing them. flock to their stores and show up to their events.

      I’m a big fan of people that some on gossip sites claim are hated and not liked. Gossip blogs are not the reality of the world. Believe it or not the vast majority of the pubic is not on gossip sites; and don’t read them or post on them. They have a certain age group that celebrates them. I guess Vogue is playing to them. And while I won’t buy this issue; those fans will.

    • A Different Kate says:

      No legit designer (aside from Kanye’s special friend who designs for Givenchy) will dress Kim because she is horrible for their brand. She has to pay for all her clothes. It is indeed an odd choice to cave to Kanye’s pressure given that the purpose of the magazine is to sell fashion, but I guess the publishers determined the magazine sales outweigh the hit in credibility. It isn’t like Armani or Dior or Versace are all of a sudden going to ignore Vogue all of a sudden. They’ll continue to ignore Kim, but not Vogue.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      It may be true that they each have a huge fan base – there are many tasteless and shallow people in this world, unfortunately – but, Anna, I am 56 years old and people have been “contouring and bronzing” for as long as I can remember. Your statements about makeup are just wrong.

      • Peppa says:

        The Real Housewives and the Teen Moms have big fan bases too. Agree on the tasteless and shallow comment.

      • Anna says:

        I didn’t say she invented bronzing and contouring, but in the past 5-8 years what celebrity has worn makeup in the way that she has that has popularized it? Look at the countless youtube tutorials that have millions of views that are showing girls how to do the “Kim K” look.. or the beauty gurus on youtube or have popular blogs that all reference Kim when they speak about contouring.. Are you that out of touch with what people 18-30? LOL

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Yes, Anna, I confess that I don’t spend nearly enough time watching youtube makeup tutorials. I’ll have to work on that.

      • Anna says:

        You don’t have to watch them yourself, my point was that teens and young adults are and most beauty gurus are copying that look. Not to the extent that Kim is, but there are a lot of similarities.. So what a lot of teens and young adults are wearing today goes back to Kim.. that was my point, there’s no need to be so condescending.

    • emmie_a says:

      Please explain to me the impact Kim has had. Seriously. The ONLY thing I can think she has impacted is the plastic surgery industry. And DM is totally up her ass. The other day they attributed an actress wearing torn jeans with heels to a trend started by Kim. Please.

    • Nina W says:

      Seriously? I know no one who wears such gross make-up all the time. Why do they always have forty pounds of make-up caked on? It’s not flattering and it’s very dated. As for their fashion choices, the only ones I see sporting their looks are for rent by the hour on the seedy side of town. And work out clothes are not a legitimate fashion choice either, come on, how full are their closets and they’re always in spandex. Not cute.

    • Ericka Lyn says:

      @ANNA

      you arent crazy! lol yes i know exactly what you mean. Every girl from the suburbs from preteen to young adulthood wants to be kim kardashian. go on instagram, go out to the club, or even the mall and its clear as day!

    • brionne says:

      I don’t watch keeping up with the kardashians but the incredible amount of MEAN GIRL ING directed at this woman makes me fear r her safety. If people aren’t body shaming her….they are slut shaming her in a that hasn’t been done to Lindsey Lohan or Paris Hilton or Jessica Simpson. Is it because she likes Black men? The high school behavior toward this woman is unbelievable. The piling on is so unnecessary and craven.

  18. Kiddo says:

    The garage shot is hilariously bad. LMAO.

  19. Mylene - Montreal says:

    SHE IS ON THE COVER .. because KANYE is THERE ! …… NEVER she’s going to do the cover ALONE !

  20. Allison says:

    Guys. It’s the April cover. It’s Anna Wintour with the best April Fool’s joke ever.

    Right?!?!

  21. Mel M says:

    So gross. They both think they’re supermodels in these photos too.

    Plus “their fashionable life” you mean fashion disaster right?

    That hashtag is the icing on the cake

  22. Baskingshark says:

    So essentially Wintour refused to put this plastic-faced skank on the cover by herself and only caved when her precious Kanye said he’d appear alongside her.

    Will Vogue be regularly featuring porn stars on their cover from now on?

  23. queenfreddiemercury says:

    The picture of Kim against the car I swear she looks dead and he’s trying to get her help. lol The other pictures aren’t bad Kanye looks a little grumpy (his sig) but Kim looks decent.

    I can’t believe Vogue sunk so low. Well I can but….

  24. PunkyMomma says:

    Thank you, Anna Wintour. You have, by putting these cockroaches on the cover of Vogue, reduced both the credibility and legitimacy of this magazine. Vogue, the former fashion magazine of record is now on par with the likes of The Enquirer, Star or Globe. Litter box lining.

    Take a bow, Anna.

    • claire says:

      I have long admired Anna, but after this, she needs to step down. If she is willing to take the magazine this low, it can’t be trusted in her hands.

      • Chrissy says:

        Agree, how can anyone take her seriously
        now that she put the prize cow of the most reviled family in America on the cover of Vogue? What was she thinking and what does Kanye have on her? SMH!!!!

      • claire says:

        @Chrissy: She can’t be taken seriously. She has just lost a ton of credibility. A lot of times there’s initial outrage on social media and the like, then everyone forgets. THIS is not something that people will forget about Anna. I think the repercussions on her career and how people perceive her now, will be seen for a while. People will be laughing at her behind her back for a long time. She lost a ton of respect. And I’m not talking about with the general public, but with the fashion industry insiders themselves. You don’t put a woman famous for being peed on, who on the daily wears ill-fitting tacky clothes on the cover of The Fashion Bible, and continue to be treated by peers as an authority of good taste and fashion forwardness. She has let this magazine slide for years and this is just the final kick into the trashcan. Hopefully someone can take over and bring prestige back to the magazine. It’s unfortunate that, after such a long celebrated career, she’ll have this hanging over her head forever.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Punkymama – preach! You got that right! It’s actually sad. Vogue used to stand for high fashion, not the bottomscrapers of p0rn and pop culture.

  25. Clucky says:

    Will they get the cover for their inevitable divorce as well?

  26. Zwella Ingrid says:

    You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

  27. meryl says:

    YES YES YES!! hate me for it but i LOVE this. i NEVER EVER buy vogue. but i will buy this issue just for protest and support. hihi!!

  28. roxy750 says:

    WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????? At this point I am convinced they pay magazine and TV channels to publish and air their crap. Who in their right mind would do this? What iis VOGUE thinking? Honest to God.

    • Sassy says:

      Anyone remember the ending of “Devil wore Prada” where the Miranda Priestly character was totally aware that someone was trying to do her in and she had the last laugh. I am thinking that Anna Wintour may also have something up her sleeve. Her editorial comment was just one tiny inch from bitchiness. Only recognized by people who know this type, and I do. She is no one’s fool. Anna and her mag will make money on this.

  29. Bananapants says:

    Somebody get Anna Wintour on the horn for me, because I want a Vogue cover. It’s quite obvious to me that they’re giving them away to anyone who wants one anymore.
    I’ll be wearing flip flops. I’m sure it won’t be a problem.

  30. lucy says:

    An amateur porn nobody and a thug – nothing to see here. Neither of these wannabes has any bearing on fashion or style.

    Vogue, get a grip! So out of touch.

    • meryl says:

      a thug? what makes kanye a thug? his skin color?

      i bet you’re one of those people who would love using the n-word but can’t for social reasons and because it would expose them immediately as racists. instead you go running around calling every person of color a thug, because you’re scared and full of hatred and jealousy.

      i feel sorry for you. go find your place at gods feet and pray for forgiveness.

    • Adear says:

      Hi racist. Lucy try as you might you can’t hide the ugly in your words.

      • CalebsMom says:

        So would you consider Alec Baldwin a thug with all of his anger issues? Yeah, didn’t think so. So what is your criteria. Anyone who is ever given probation regardless of skin color?

      • lucy says:

        I present a Public Service Announcement:

        Neither one’s size, shape, age, skin color, ethnicity, or religious beliefs defines someone as being a thug.

        Committing assault, i.e., violently attacking person(s), defines who is a thug. And for the record, a thug is an undesirable, violent, inappropriately misbehaving person.

        Probation is a disciplinary action for having committed punishable behavior.

        Classifying a person who commits documented uncontrolled raging violent behavior as a “thug” does not – by any stretch of the imagination – indicate the speaker as being in any way racist.

        Examples of thugs are: Sean Penn, Russell Crowe, Alec Baldwin, Kid Rock, Olivier Martinez, Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen, and Kanye West.

      • Michelle says:

        Adear, Lucy is speaking the beautiful truth. What is ugly about that?

      • snowflake says:

        kanye is a thug. anyone that goes around beating up people is a thug and can’t control their emotions. and i bet my african=american husband would agree with me. we get looks a lot b/c he’s black and i’m white, and we live in northern florida (south). act like trash, get treated like trash! KANYE IS A THUG!

    • Agnetha says:

      Kanye IS a thug. It has nothing to do with race. I would not hesitate to call anyone of any race a thug or hoodlum if they acted like one. It is racist to accuse people of being racist for using a word that applies to all races.

      It is interesting the people calling Lucy racist instantly jumped to the conclusion that only African Americans can be referred to as thugs. Who is racist again?

    • crack fox says:

      In response to the commenters calling Kanye thug:
      Do you honestly think you would not lose your cool and swing on someone who was following you with a camera without your permission? Think about it. A stranger is invading your personal space, preventing you from getting where you need to go, and trying to provoke a violent reaction from you in order to get a big payday, and there’s NOTHING you can do about it because the law it’s on their side. I call BS if you say you wouldn’t snap. Kanye is not a thug. And, YES “thug” is racially coded.

      And to all the commenters who say, “Well my Black husband, blah, blah, blah”…you don’t speak for your Black husband or any Black person. Trying to is an exercise of your privilege as is attempting to negate the fact that thug is the politically correct way of saying the N-word. When’s the last time you heard a White person called a thug outside of the context of someone’s poor attempt to disprove an accusation of racism?

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Crack fox and Adear
        I deplore racist comments, and I applaud your efforts to expose them. But in this case, I think you might be reacting to your definition of the word “thug” as it is used in the modern day by the black community. I’m a 56 year old white woman, and all my life, a thug used to mean a person who committed violent acts on behalf of someone else, such as a Mafia person who beat people up for owing money. Thugs were white. I mean, you could be black and be a thug, I guess, but the stereotype of a thug was a white guy, usually involved in organized crime. Two years ago, I was on a jury and the defendant was black. He had a website with the word “thug” in the name, and it was explained to the jury what that means in urban terminology today. I promise you, that was first time I was I aware of it being used in that context, since I don’t listen to hip hop or rap or anything like that. So I have just admitted how completely uncool I am. In return for that, please try to at least consider that the people above don’t see that word as a coded term. They might really be taken aback and confused by your insistence that it’s racist.

        The manufactured characteristics some of you have attributed to me are categorically untrue and stunningly illogical. Please check yourselves. Humility is a virtue.

        It is irrational to assign malevolent intention to my characterizing a person who acts violently towards others with hotheaded uncontrolled temper as a thug. See the plainly stated dictionary definition of it, above. Period.

        Never in my life have I considered the word “thug” to be a code or synonym for the “n word”. It is sinister and unfortunate that someone would consider use of the word to be racially-motivated.

        And, yes, “(e)xamples of thugs are: Sean Penn, Russell Crowe, Alec Baldwin, Kid Rock, Olivier Martinez, Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen, and Kanye West.” Clearly, race is NOT an issue to this undesirable criminal behavior.

        Nor is race on topic.

        The topic is:

        What justification is there for:

        A) a shameless amateur skeezy home-porn show-off (who has a cheap namesake fashion line but no respected or flattering fashion credibility whatsoever and who has a track record of 2 controversial failed marriages and a recent stint as a paid escort),

        AND, what justification is there for

        B) (her equally delusional whiny tantrum-throwing egomaniacal criminally-prosecuted repeatedly violent fiance who is) a rap artist and a friend of the magazine editor

        to C) be featured on the cover of what was once considered to be an esteemed and credible high fashion lifestyle magazine?

        Neither of these people is chic nor stylish nor has history of displaying chic or stylish qualities, nor of contributing credible style to the fashion industry – including here on this cover. Must be some sabotage within the Vogue staff trying to pass this off as cover material. Kim looks dreadful! Much worse than usual. Only Kanye looks pretty good here, but with his wardrobe history he has no business being in a fashion mag any more than Kim does.

        Bottom line is these 2 have no credibility for being featured on or in Vogue.

        I call Joe Biden a thug. Also John Kerry. Always threatening countries. They sound like big thugs to me.

  31. Joy says:

    Can we talk about the pic where she is trying to smile? It looks painful.

  32. MynameisPeaches! says:

    I’m shocked but I’m comforted by the fact that she couldn’t manage to get her own Vogue cover. Victoria Beckham must be crying somewhere.

  33. Lux says:

    NNNNNOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW IS THIS HAPPENING!? WTF Anna. Who’s going to be on next months cover? Honey Boo Boo? Snooki?

  34. bunny says:

    This is so hideous n to dose that say kim has influenced fashion, I think u should speak for urself.

  35. Eleonor says:

    I want to say something nice baby Nori is totally a cutie.

    • CalebsMom says:

      Yes she is but have you noticed that she never seems to make eye contact with Kim when she is holding her? Maybe never is too strong a word but out of all the candids and the video up top-Nori does not seem engaged with Kim at all. Weird

      • janie says:

        @calebsmom…. I thought the same thing about Nori! She doesn’t look at either one when they are holding her? She’s not crying, but pulling away from both. These are her parents, there’s no connection…. either from her eyes or body language. I’m glad she’s being taken care of whomever she looking for. She’s so adorable.

      • Nicolette says:

        She probably hasn’t bonded with either of them. How much time could she possibly be spending with her parents? I’ll bet the expression is much different with the nanny.

      • CalebsMom says:

        Lol-I know right. I hope so too. I feel sorry for her even with all of that wealth. I do indeed hope that is the reason-I have a child with special needs and I hope she doesn’t have one due to having narcissists as parents. I am probably reading too much into it but lack of eye contact is an early sign of autism.

  36. grayze says:

    First of all – since she’s such a fan of cosmetic surgery she needs to find one that will bring life back to that dead-eyed gaze. Talk about staring into a middle distance.

    I’m also so disappointed in Anna Wintour and in Vogue. The Kardashian brand taints everything it touches and somehow cheapens it. It’s like a fungus that provokes immediate side-eye from everywhere. It’s happened with Kanye, it’s happening with Vogue, it happens with every piece of clothing she puts on.

    Bah.

  37. adelacruz says:

    Surprisingly love the picture! But the video was so lame!!! Why did they pick that song?? I had to mute it and play my romantic mexican songs in the backround to be able to get through they video. The next video of Sara Jessica Parker interview made it worth my while. lol

  38. Bluesky says:

    My guess is the only way she would have been allowed on the cover is if Kanye was on there with her. I cannot imagine that Anna’s wintour would have allowed her to get a solo cover. Noticed he’s in all the pictures.

  39. Gen says:

    I hope the sales of Vogue bombs. Disgusting!

  40. MonicaQ says:

    Say something nice of the day:

    Their photoshop artist was quite kind. Also I love the baby’s facial expression. “Check this mess out. You seeing this right? Because I am and I can’t even talk yet.”

  41. Tiffany says:

    Damn it!!!! I just put away all my winter clothes.

  42. Micah says:

    Disgusting.

    Vogue is O.V.E.R.

  43. Christo says:

    It is offical; Vogue is dead. The new title for the magazine going forward should be Passe.

  44. Vanderhootchie says:

    Tell me those lips aren’t doctored, and tell me that baby’s eyebrow hasn’t been waxed. I dare you!!

    • emmie_a says:

      Her entire face has been doctored. But yeah, her lips are awful. I don’t think these pics are flattering at all. And I thought the baby’s brows looked natural here, compared to that one pic Kim released, which was totally photoshopped.

  45. daisy says:

    If a career can jump the shark, I think Anna Wintour’s just did.

  46. wheezy says:

    “See- in hang out w my baby…sometimes”
    that’s what I thought when I saw these pictures.
    Also, it looks like the photoshopist dug into the annuls of Kim’s old looks for some of the facial features, she looks different.
    Oh- and kanye’s posing/serious face os hilarious! Lol, I bet Kim taught him how to “model.”
    Safe to say, I’ll pass this one up the next time I’m at Target lol.

    • janie says:

      @wheezy… You’re so funny! Can’t you just hear Kim in her whiny voice… I don’t wannnna hold her, she’ll messss up my dressss and make-up! I’m not sure howw to hold her, so im the focus, this isn’t fairrrr!! Wahwah! Lol!

  47. Josephine says:

    Why does it look like she has holes at the end of her mouth?

    She may have gotten Vogue, but she doesn’t look good. She looks so uncomfortable, and the “spread” is embarrassing – there is no chemistry at all between these two.

    Send a little note to Vogue and let them know what you think – I think they should understand that they are now the equivalent of Star magazine. Porn star/reality loser. Wow Vogue.

  48. alexandra says:

    The Lambo picture there is a trash can and a tread mill, just classy

    • word says:

      Looks like Kris Jenner’s garage. Also, I remember Kim saying she’d do ANYTHING for a Vogue cover. I guess “ANYTHING” means having a baby with a guy you don’t love just because he has connections. North is so cute in that video though.

  49. Mary Jane says:

    These two are just disgusting

  50. CK says:

    You go girl! That is all I can really say. Kim K of all the reality T.V. messes managed to get a Vogue cover. Aside from my feelings about the Kardashians (ick), I can recognize and respect some good PR wrangling. 2 Claps for Kris.

  51. HK9 says:

    The Four Housemen of the fashion apocalypse are galloping over the horizon. Vogue is done.

  52. lisa2 says:

    It just hit me.. E News will probably do an hour long segment on this cover and such. UGH they are all up the Kardashians butts.

  53. dorothy says:

    I hope Kanye’s friendship was worth losing Vogue magazine credibility and respectability.

  54. miriam says:

    HAHAHAH

    It’s April Fools right?

    Right?

    RIGHT?!

    Just a joke.

  55. bns says:

    LOL @ her getting a cover before Kerry Washington, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Lupita Nyong’o, Liu Wen, etc.

    I know that Anna only cares about money and publicity, but I never thought she would stoop this low.

  56. Leslie says:

    Wasn’t Vogue at one time a classy magazine?

  57. Aria says:

    What is Anna thinking for the love of God!!!!!!??????????????????????

  58. Cazzee says:

    I wish they had just put the baby on the cover. She’s the only likeable person in this whole scenario…

  59. L says:

    This looks like it might have been before her most recent nose job, and she looks so much better.

  60. Aria says:

    Victoria Beckham deserves better than Vogue.

  61. Helena says:

    This will be one of a highest selling Vogue covers ever. I will buy one and I haven´t bought Vogue for a long time. Just Brilliant, I love Kanye.

  62. mena says:

    I can’t stand Kim K, but let’s face it, Vogue had this coming. Ever since Anna Wintour decided to put celebrities on the cover & chase after Hollywood, she was driving that magazine to this end.

    But on the bright side, maybe this low point will finally signal a shift in the fashion mags away from celebrity culture. Anna can’t possibly think this is the right direction to keep moving towards.

  63. M.A.F. says:

    You had one job Anna, one job. Victoria Beckham must be in a corner somewhere w/a box cookies , screaming “why? Why?!”

    North I really is a cute baby though.

  64. TX says:

    Whelp, I guess its time to say RIP to any integrity Vogue once had.

  65. Jessica says:

    Anna Wintour broke down and gave Kim a cover? The apocalypse must be near.

  66. stacat1 says:

    #worldsmostobnoxiouscouple

  67. ashley says:

    Why are people so angry?!!! They’re acting like kim kill/arm member/s of y”ll family,it’s pathetic . Having so much hatred for a person that doesn’t even know that you exist. I’m so happy for them,baby nori is so beautiful.

    • lisa2 says:

      I agree about the hate. I won’t buy the issue because I don’t buy Vogue unless there is an interview with someone I like. So I haven’t bought Vogue in a few years. I think the best thing is to now buy the issue and not support the shows/products. but I doubt anyone here buy the Kardashian’s products.

    • whateveryouwantittobe says:

      I’m trying not to be nasty or hateful but I honestly couldn’t tell you one genuine or endearing quality about her. The whole family is disgustingly exploitative. She goes to feed the homeless once, dressed to the nines, bringing 20 paps & a film crew. She couldn’t give a fk about those people, she was using their misfortune to make her look good.

      Then she opens an ebay store for charity, she’s already worth tens of millions of dollars but keeps NINETY PERCENT of the profit! Money that would only be a drop in the ocean for her. The focus of her entire life is her looks, money, acquiring more money and walking around in a different outfit pouting like she’s Lady Di. I said I wasn’t going to be nasty but god damn she makes it hard.

    • Nina W says:

      Angry is too strong a word, as is hate. Kim is the embodiment of all things superficial and meaningless, she has no talent, she’s not interesting and her main interest seems to be mirrors. She doesn’t deserve to be on the cover of Vogue or any magazine. She is selfish and self-serving and, I can’t stress this strongly enough, boring.

    • queenfreddiemercury says:

      To me it’s because after all these years all Kim has to her claim to fame is her reality show and her sex tape that got her famous. I’m not even putting her down for that. But what kept her famous is the men she’s dated. It would be like Vogue putting Brandi Glandville on the cover of their magazine (if she was dating some A list star).

  68. blondie says:

    And she wouldn’t let Posh get the cover….

  69. Kelly says:

    Who knew people were so invested in a fashion magazine, lmao.
    Who bloody cares, you all are reacting as if she’s been chosen as Time’s person of the year.
    Although who knows, some day maybe Kanye can buy that cover too :P
    With enough money you can get anything

  70. Leslie says:

    Vogue??? Why? Kim is a low-class, sells-herself-to-the-highest-bidder (there’s a word for that) female who got her start in porn. Will Courtney Stodden be the next trashy person they put on the cover? Tila Tequila? Paris Hilton? Lindsay Lohan?

  71. betteboo says:

    Surely, surely surely, this is an elaborate April Fools Day set up joke. There is NO other legitimate explanation for this.

    Vogue mag in the toilet? Financially in the poo? No doubt scraping the barrel with this move

    • Miss Pasión says:

      Yes. The publication is losing money and Anna does not hold the same clout that she used to. I work in the publishing industry in NYC and we have our own gossip and rumor mill circuit. Anna is used to having her own way and her parent corporation Condé Nast let her do her thing provided things stayed profitable and up until recently they had been. When other magazines were in the toilet, you could count on Vogue to turn some kind of profit so Nast backs her up when ex-enployees threaten to sue her for wrongful termination and libel, they smooth things over when she pisses off an advertiser or her editorial board and they encouraged a more celebrity presense in Vogue but allowed Anna to remain very particular about whom. It’s The Devil Wears Prada as prophecy. However, things have been going downhill for sometime. Now Nast is scrambling to figure out what to do and at the same time her editorial board wants her fired and removed. Anna used to be able to stack the editorial boards but she is in a powerless position. Chances are, sometime after the Met Gala we will hear of Anna and Vogue “parting ways.”

  72. KayLastima says:

    In one fell swing Anna has slapped us ALL in the face with Ray Jay’s penis.

    How dare you Anna, how dare you????!!!!!!!! I could spit nails right now, I am just that furious and incredulous! GD it all!

  73. jane16 says:

    You people are on a roll today! Laughing hystercially.

  74. Shopperetta says:

    I am fixated on his hands! Why are they not touching her???

  75. CL says:

    I am surprised no one is mentioning the mind-boggling statement AW made about KK that included the phrase “her strength of character”. How anyone could see Kim that way is beyond me.

    I’m going to hide in my bunker now, ’cause the end is nigh, y’all!!!

  76. CL says:

    I do, however, really like the shot on Kanye on the jet with a safety airbag.

  77. mw says:

    Consider my subscription cancelled! Anyone notice he’s not even touching her? He’s holding his own hands, hovering over the dress, she barely touches his. As awkward as that cringe-worthy video, and just as unconvincing.

  78. pru says:

    “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.”

    Is AW high??

  79. mux says:

    Ever notice how in all their photo ops they NEVER look at each other?

    Self-absorbed ego-maniacs.

  80. St says:

    I really really don’t care about Vogue and who it will put on cover. And also I don’t care about Kardashian, West. I don’t understand why people in america are so crazy about it all.

  81. Gisele says:

    Vogue is no longer vogue. It should be Vague.

  82. Sam H x says:

    The only nice thing I can say is Nori is a little cutie pie! Poor thing stuck with narcissists for parents. I can only hope she has a good set of nannies to raise her.

    Mannn, Anna Wintour has simultaneously shot herself in the foot, lost any shred of credibility Vogue had and has become the laughing stock amongst the upper echelons of the fashion elite.

    Don’t worry Victoria, you should consider this a victory gurl!

    Oh how the mighty have fallen.

  83. Mary says:

    look they put a porn star on the cover of Vogue……

    WORST selling issue ever.

  84. lisa2 says:

    I don’t care about Kim on Vogue.. I don’ t buy it nor read it. I just think it is wrong that Anna never had Victoria on the cover.

    I think Victoria’s response if she is offered a US Vogue cover in the future.

    NO thank you.. I don’t do US Vogue…

  85. ThatGirl says:

    Best I’ve seen her look. I’ll leave it at that. However, if it was an April Fool’s Day joke it would be the biggest “burn”.

  86. Diane says:

    Why even buy the magazine? You can see everything on line and not spend a cent. This is why magazines and newspapers are doomed. Anna just pushed Vogue closer to the grave.

  87. don't kill me i'm french says:

    Like i ‘m in happy mind today,i think they look good,the dress on the cover is awesome and the baby too cute ( and Anna Wintour lost her mind)

  88. Miffy says:

    Loving North’s “who the f*ck are these people?” face.

    Also, a hashtag on a once respected magazine cover? The English language is officially dead.

  89. emmie_a says:

    I think Anna’s comments are weird. Why would she bring up Kanye begging for a cover — unless there was some truth to it? Something just seems way off w/her remarks.

  90. rudy says:

    Kim&Kanye have NO chemistry together. They look so awkward. He looks at her as if she was a creature from outer space.

    That poor baby. Neither parent seems as if they spend anytime with the kid. I’ve watched many background videos for shoots and seen parents with their kids. Kim is handing North as if he was a prop. Who is nurturing that child?

    Anna is desperate. Why else put this duo on the cover? She knew it would cause controversy and unfortunately, even if everyone hates the cover, the issue will sell just because it is so awful.

    My teenage girl does not watch the Kartrashians but she has a friend who does. It is sickening. A role model who got famous for doing nothing but plastic surgery. How wonderful. NOT

  91. original kay says:

    huh.

    since when did “strength of character” = “being peed on in a home porn movie”

    come on Anna, we all know exactly what she did for fame.

  92. LAK says:

    It seems major sucking up is the answer to getting a vogue cover. I’m off to stalk/beg Edna mode for a cover…..look to see me on there soon.

  93. hmmm says:

    Vogue, eh? The apocalypse has begun.

  94. Kemper says:

    So all I have to do to get a Vogue cover is star in a sex tape.

  95. LilyT says:

    Wintour has lost her damn mind. Putting kim on the cover with her zombie bride mustache makeup lookin like a hot ass mess.

  96. Damaris says:

    We all know that Kim and Kanye kissed major ass to get on this cover. Whatever, Anna. I don’t understand how putting two insanely hyped and overexposed celebrities on Vogue will help sales. No, no and no.

  97. Rox says:

    I wonder what Grace Coddington is thinking?

  98. kitty-bye says:

    I noticed the news today Yahoo comments discuss
    “Dear Yahoo, No More Kardashian Stories Please!!! Nobody Likes Them OR Wants To Read Them!”
    Same goes for everywhere.

  99. Anne says:

    Miranda Presley would have never approved that cover!!!

  100. chalkituptoluck says:

    Ugh! BARFFFFFFFFF!
    No chemistry, the smugness!
    What the hell!? I just can’t

  101. swack says:

    What I find interesting is that one year Anna W banned Kim from the Met Ball. This year when posting pictures she cut Kim out. Seems pretty hypocritical of Anna to now put her on the cover.

  102. Tiffany says:

    So this confirms it, this was the long game for Kim and PMK, a Vogue. I can see them doing this. Stupid Yeesus. Ahhhh, I’m just kidding. Or am I.
    * Dumdumdum*

  103. lola lola says:

    Anna’s quote talks about Kim’s “Strength of character”?!? Are you kidding me?? A reality TV actress…The last bastion of fashion & style has now crumbled to become a more stylish People Magazine. Gross. Just Gross.

  104. Michelle says:

    This will be the least purchased issue of all time unless of course PMK doesnt have her minions go out and buy up every single issue. Maybe advertisers will drop out and that is where it will really hurt.

  105. Michelle says:

    What is up with Nori’s eyebrows? It looks like they were marked in. She does NOT look happy at all.

  106. silly you says:

    american vogue is over, credibility-wise. so long, dignity! bye-bye spotless legacy! anna wintour has 100% lost it. diana vreeland would never.

  107. mom2two says:

    Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted that it’s time for her to cancel her Vogue subscription. LOL.

  108. heartdoc says:

    REAAAALLLYY hoping this is an April’s Fool thing. Otherwise I’m in the cancel-the-subscription camp. Toodles, American Vogue. (Thank god Alexandra Shulman hasn’t gone this insane)

  109. Kemper says:

    How many times has Vogue had to release a statement about their cover pick?

  110. Rascalito says:

    I love the part in the video where he sings “I know you’re tired…”, at the same moment Kim’s face appears in a close-up…looking so tired lol. Whoever edited that, nice timing! ha ha ;)

  111. LadyS says:

    Welp…I guess Anna just saved me $20 for next year. No more subscribing from me. Off to get me a grande caramel latte with my new found cash. Thank you, Anna!!

  112. snowflake says:

    I wonder how many takes of these pictures they had to do before they got ones that Kim approved? you know that superficial hoe won’t let out a picture she doesn’t approve. or is it just a coincidence that in every photo, she is perfectly posed and flawless? yeah, right. roflmao. every picture is carefully poised, and coveys the message she is trying to convey. for example, her perfectly posed and ‘shopped white swimsit picture? or her happy couple pose?

  113. Helena Hand-Basquet says:

    March 21st, 2014 will henceforth and forever be known as “The Day the Fashion Died.”

  114. shellybean says:

    Well, Anna can claim that Kanye didn’t beg her to put Kim on the cover, and that very well may be true. HOWEVER, Kim would never have gotten the opportunity to be on the cover if it wasn’t for Kanye and her being one half of Kimye. That is the ONLY reason she is on the cover, she is not there on her own merit. So, whatever. Anna knows this to be true, too, I don’t care how she tries to spin it.

  115. lucy says:

    Ya know, since THIS is the pinnacle Awkwardashian was living for, now WHAT does she have left to aspire to?

    Can she juggle chainsaws while riding a unicycle?

  116. LadyS says:

    Just realized April would have been such a great cover for Lupita. The woman just won an Oscar, is intelligent and driven, has an excellent physique (with a face that moves), and looks FABULOUS in spring colors. Now I’m more angry!!

  117. Quinn says:

    Snort! These two look hilarious together ! Kim always looks like a cult member in need of de programming. #mostawkwardcoupleever

  118. AnnieCL says:

    Kim Kardashian is a cheap, tacky talentless person. Kanye West is a narcissistic, egotistical a-hole. They have just defiled Vogue.

  119. Blackbetty says:

    Why did Anna Wintour give in to this rubbish? Was she that desperate?!

  120. yuck says:

    If Kim and Kanye are now “defining our culture to a ‘T’,” can someone please tell me how to stop this world, I want to get off! Or at least move to Canada. Seriously, though, has Anna seen her doctor lately? This sort of “deviation” from the norm is usually indicative of some sort of brain trauma. Just goes to show how truly out of touch with reality she is. Hey Anna, maybe Ryan Seacrest has a job for you!

  121. sally says:

    Wow, can’t believe the hate on here. Can’t we just be happy for them. They seem genuinely in love, have a beautiful daughter and are on top of the world. Congrats to them both.

  122. daisyfly says:

    Anna is a devious bish. Not only is Dim Bulbdashian’s makeup on the same level as beginner YouTube “guru”, the amount of Photoshop on HER face is at the minimum, which when contrasted with the skin smoothing done on Kanye’s makes her look ten times worse.

    Anna will be able to say “I told you so” and Dim, while having a Vogue cover under her spandex, will never be taken seriously again because of how terrible she looks. Also, the photos also prove the Photoshopping of Ignori’s brows.

  123. Ash says:

    Ewewewewewewwwwwww

    Oh lord. Vogue used to have class and was a respectable magazine, what happened? I have lost so much respect to see they have let this delusional prick and his famewhore gf on the cover. It’s pathetic. I didn’t think they would actually give in to kanyes whining, but that dumbf^ck must have worn them down.

    I hope they lose a ton of subscribers. You are just feeding the ego of that trash.

  124. Nicole says:

    Hundreds of comments later and people are still wondering how Kim Kardashian got a Vogue cover. I think they look great.

  125. Maxine says:

    Ridiculous BUT THIS should be a cautionary tale to the Jennifer Garner’s, Halle Berry’s and Kristin Bell’s of the world. There will always be Kim Kardashian-like “celebrities” who are willing to sell out their kids, parents, anybody for fame and money. . . . and now Wintour has given her a legitimate platform with which to say, in essence, I have arrived. I think legit actors and actresses and other entertainers think that somehow they are above the Kardashian’s of the world and can make certain demands because they occupy a space that someone like Kardashian will never occupy. Apparently they are wrong.

  126. Shay15 says:

    My,Kanye looks like the happiest man on Earth.

  127. LadyS says:

    Is it possible that Anna is being pushed out as editor of Vogue and this cover is some sort of ploy to take the magazine down with her? I need a reason, no matter how crazy, to understand this level of bullshit we have been confronted with!! Ugh!

  128. Moi says:

    I agree with the poster above regarding the fact that everyone is so up in arms, is the reason it will most likely sell. I don’t understand why this is a thing. I’m not a fan, and the way all of this came about is disconcerting. However, I might think Kim K needs to lay off the Botox and fillers, she created an empire out of such foolery. Is she to blame or are we? I can’t believe I am taking up for her, but I won’t look at this article again so, oh well I suppose.

    Vogue either no longer sees fashion as an art form…..or Vogue feels that everything, including pop culture is an art form. ~in my Andy Warhol voice.

  129. SJI says:

    I hate his ugly smug face. He has one single facial expression, I don’t think he’s ever smiled or learned to not look like a complete asshole. She… is beyond words. Ugh.

  130. KayLastima says:

    So I just actually took a look at the photos and they are horrendous. She of the dead eye trying to appear light as a feather in his arms and SO in love. He looks smug AND lifeless.

    A pox on you Anna. You are dead to me for trying to force feed us rancid dog turds.

  131. Marcell says:

    Kim kardashian is iconic.

  132. Miss Anne Thropic says:

    Anna Wintour thinks Americans are idiots, clearly. Her mag has been uninspiring for at least a decade. Giovanna, Emmanuellle and Franca are the tastemakers. Grace probably had a stroke when this idea was OK’d.

    KK your tenacity is incredible, so is your complete lack of shame.

    It doesn’t seem to me as though Kim got the cover – Kanye got the cover, she’s a prop. But the dress she’s wearing looks good on her from the front at least, she’s not squeezed into it so she looks normal for once. But that car photo – couldn’t Kanye find a sink or what?

    And I see little North ByNorth West still looks as though she’s thinking “Where’s my nanny? Who are these people?!?!”. I wish Kourtney would just adopt her. Is there anybody normal on Kanye’s side who can raise her? She needs a forever home.

    • Meme says:

      Why would a man be on the cover of a women’s fashion magazine? I don’t recall Vogue ever having a man on the cover. I haven’t read American Vogue in years. French, British and Italian Vogue are the ones to read. I often see Anna in NYC and she always has beeyotch face

      • lucy says:

        Richard Gere was the first man on the Vogue cover, posing with his then-wife, supermodel Cindy Crawford, in 1992. That had legitimacy to it, due to Cindy’s high fashion modeling profession, her achievements in that profession, and actor Gere being her husband. Other cover men were actor George Clooney (with unrelated model Gisele B) and athlete LeBron James (again posing with unrelated model Gisele B), and then athlete bimbo Ryan Lochte was featured between 2 female athletes, Hope Solo and Serena Williams (having nothing whatsoever to do with fashion).

        American Vogue has been in an uninspired decline for a good long time with Wintour at the helm. She also did other former high style magazines in prior to making Vogue mediocre. How much longer will this last?

  134. Nibbi says:

    1. Wonk Eye, dammit. She’s gotten Wonk Eye from some procedure or other. All the fashionable set seem to overlook Wonk eye and still treat the Wonk Eyed as beautiful, put them in/on magazines, etc. when to my decidedly normal, non-fashionable self it looks like a borderline embarassing self-mutilation or at the least an unfortunate minor birth defect. I’m sorry, it’s just fast becoming a pet peeve. Started with Paris Hilton which seemed poetically just at the time but now it seems more and more common. I’d be terrified to do anything w my eyes for fear of ending up with The Wonk. You’d think they’d photoshop THAT out before slicing out her arm flab.
    2. Arm flab. C’mon, obvious photoshop fail. We’re supposed to believe she’s got near-anorexic model arms?
    3. You guys are right, the cover could have/should have gone to someone classy, interesting, talented, elegant like Lupita or Kerry. It’s not like there’s suddenly a dearth of those kinds of women.
    3. I do like the top of that dress.
    4. The hashtag on the cover actually kind of offends/worries me more than the people on it. Sooo tabloid

  135. Rae Cordero says:

    Kim kardashian is trash.

  136. Rae Cordero says:

    And why is one boob higher than the other? The arm and the vacuous looks and the utter lack of emotion or chemistry and plastic surgery butchered face produces an unattractive cold look that is utterly unappealing and I am at a loss as to why?
    No more vogue for me.

  137. eliza says:

    As if Wintour, a full ,stealthy stunt queen herself, was not ever going to put Kim on the cover. PLEASE!

    Wintour is not the be all, end all of fashion and taste. All anyone needs to do is take one look at her dated look and realize, at this point, she has turned Vogue into a ridiculous farce and her days might be numbered.

    I have NO idea if there is any truth to this rumor but there was discussion on another site about Wintour being replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker at Vogue. Lol.

  138. Ahot says:

    Dreams do come true. lol@ how her figure cannot be seen & she is not alone on the cover. + the issue is buried in the weekend, not to be seen or remembered on monday. But dreams do come true for everyone who hangs on to them. Anne is the queen of shade. *bow down to her power*

  139. Nikita says:

    There is a huge shitstorm against vogue and anna wintour going on because of that cover. I dont care too much about that but i understand that vogue-readers are dissapointed.

  140. Miss Pasión says:

    Anna Wintour will be removed as editor of Vogue before the end of the year. The editoriall board has had it out for her for some time. This is her way of saying she no longer gives a f*** Mark my words.

  141. NotinKansasAnymore says:

    Maybe AW put them on the cover because they knew (or hoped) that the public would be so outraged that they would rush out and buy copies in disbelief at the “news” that a Kardashian is on the cover of US Vogue. Vogue sales haven’t been at there peak for a looong time and controversy sells, that’s why Kimye articles get so many comments.

    My comment of the cover: I’m not a fan of the dress and the make up makes her look like a horny man. Fail.

  142. Mar says:

    My thoughts on this cover
    It’s elegant and simple- but in all honestly Kim has really taken her surgery too far- her face looks awful. The bottom part of her face looks way over worked and she looks like a muppet. She really ruined her self

    • Kiddo says:

      It’s a perfectly unimaginative cover photo for Bride Magazine. There is nothing outstanding or interesting image-wise nor fashion-wise about it. It’s a couple with a woman in a simple gown that we’ve seen a gazillion variations of. Any *average* wedding photographer could have shot it. (I’m not dissing wedding photographers)

      Ok, sorry guys, that’ll be my last post on them, enjoy the day.

  143. Kiddo says:

    I don’t understand how not liking or not respecting someone results in sales. I have never followed this principle.
    It might get people talking. I could see if the person covered had some scandalous exposé written about them, and then people bought it for schadenfreude. But who gets motivated to spend money on a product that is all touchy-feely about someone they don’t care for? Who buys into that? We’ve seen the photos online already, do we need more? There isn’t going to be any insight. I don’t get it. They aren’t politicians where it behooves everyone to know what the hidden schtick/agenda is. They are reality stars and it’s already abundantly clear what their BS and aims are. If you like them, go and buy it, if you don’t, why would you spend money on it?

    • jane16 says:

      I won’t spend a dime of my money on Vogue, not until that troll doll Wintour is long gone and her horrible taste along with it. Will also not buy or watch on tv anything kartrashian related. I cannot stand these assholes. My hubbie & I moved to Calabasas (people call it Kalabasas now…seriously) over 15 years ago and we have to put up with their arrogant, snotty, entitled behavior all the time. No way in hell will I ever contribute anything to their monstrous fame. Now that our kids are grown, we are looking at houses in other areas.

    • jane16 says:

      Anyway, kiddo, agree with you about the sales; although, I wouldn’t put it past the “klan” to buy thousands of the copies themselves. This has created a firestorm certainly. I hope AW enjoys all the comments about herself, since the nasty witch has destroyed so many people along her way.

  144. hushgush says:

    I got the scoop on who will be the next Vogue cover: Snooki and The Situation!!!!! LOL

    • Kiddo says:

      Nah, that’s too highbrow after Kim. Maybe Charlie Sheen and his porn fiancée, next. It would make for a good Summer issue replete with mens shorts-wear and polyester one-piecers for the ladies at the beach. After that, it could be Brandy Whatsherface on the new way of wearing clothes, “falling off you, while hammered”.

  145. Jayna says:

    Well, it’s obvious she refused to give Kim a cover. So Anna caved and agreed to a cover but only if it was Kim with Kanye. I don’t understand publically begging for a cover like Kanye did for Kim. Everybody knows why this cover was done, not because Anna ever reached out to her and wanted her. More like giving in to Kanye to stop his whining and only if he was on the cover too.

  146. LadyJ says:

    Looking forward to May’s Issue of Vogue with Teen Mom gracing the cover.

  147. Greta says:

    At least the dress is beautiful.

  148. knuckles says:

    I really hope consumers send a message by not purchasing this issue. I feel like a hypocrite by clicking on this article and commenting because I know the only way to make them irrelevant is by ignoring them completely.

    • me says:

      The problem is they are hard to ignore. No matter how much we dislike them, we can’t look away. For them, any publicity is good publicity. I doubt they care if people hate them because for some reason in our society “hate” still equals money/fame. I don’t however, understand how Vogue will benefit from this cover? I mean it’s free to comment on blogs, but who would go and buy this cover if they don’t like Kim and Kanye? From what I can tell, 75% of the general population does not like them.

  149. dagdag says:

    Too bad Anne Wintour does not have the strength of character and real guts to realize that an exclusive fashion magazine is not judged by sales but by aesthetics and reputation.

  150. Mel M says:

    I think people are upset because Kanye thinks he’s a God and we should all be grateful to even be allowed to cast our eyes on his beauty and listen to his genius and Kim has done nothing of substance to deserve anything she’s been handed. She’s famous for making a sex tape with a guy who everyone’s forgotten about.

    I also take issue with AW saying that they “I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T” Um no, I think there are many that disagree very strongly with that.

    P.S. That video is snort worthy funny.

  151. Jess says:

    The one time I want Anna to be a mean girl, she lets me down! In looking at these pics, though, the thing that strikes me is Kanye has no sex appeal at all. He’s objectively good looking but totally boring. Maybe because he’s next to Kim, who’s all sex and nothing else. But the two of them together just seem so odd. I see no chemistry at all.

  152. Ari says:

    Her smile is so fake and its weird looking

  153. OhDear says:

    I get that putting Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue wasn’t a good decision for the magazine, but I don’t understand the level of outrage that it’s generating. She hasn’t, for example:
    * Molested a child.
    * Assaulted and battered her significant others.
    * Took someone’s eye out because the other person was of a different race.
    * Threw rocks at children because they were of a different race.

    I mean, James Deen was the lead in a movie that was featured in the Venice Film Festival and was featured in GQ and other well known or fashion magazines (including one in which he was featured with his girlfriend, also a porn star).

    • hunaww says:

      James Deen is a very interesting person and I enjoy his interviews.He is witty,thoughtful and very talented *wink wink*

    • sapphoandgrits says:

      James Deen is a professional porn star. He certainly isn’t Academy Award-caliber, but he’s at least an actor. He also is what he is, and admits it. He doesn’t try to gloss over what he is.

      Kris married Bruce Jenner. The kids’ dad was a friend of OJ’s. Kim made an amateur “porn” video that her mom sold. These people are trashy no-talent nobodies.

      You know the Kardashians are set up as a non-profit and don’t pay any taxes, right? How do you feel about that? They are grifters.

  154. taxi says:

    I don’t think the 18-30 year old market who may like KW & KK are Vogue’s biggest audience. Most of their big advertisers aim at an older & more monied readership. If this slip from value & taste bothers you, contact Cartier, Bucellati, Bottega, Hermes, LV, etc & tell them know that you’re boycotting advertisers who support this decline. Judging from the ages of many of the models appearing, the audience skews young but really, how many 20 something non-celebs can afford $20,000 handbags? Really odd, since goop gets so much hate for $200 T-shirts because people say it’s too pricey for the masses.

    • Anne says:

      you’re right and I hope people who care will consider directing their concerns to those companies. The choice to celebrate an individual who so embodies values that clash with the core values of your core readership is an incredible lapse of judgment.

  155. Spikey says:

    As Lainey pointed out: Let’s all light a candle for Posh Beckham. The poor woman… has to live to witness THIS.

  156. Palermo says:

    That cover is WEIRD. He’s not really touching her, she’s not really touching him. They both look so awkward. Why did they give her a mustache.

  157. jane16 says:

    I was thinking about the places where I’ve seen kimmy model: Sears, Carls Jr (horrible hamburger fast food) & diet pills. And now Vogue, which has just lowered itself to the likes of Sears, Carls Jr, and cheap diet pills.

    btw, the kardashian clothing line, which consists mainly of black and white spandex crap and hooker heels is made in China at those horrible slave labor places. What a “fashion” identity for Vogue to pay homage to with cover. Way to go wintour.

    http://www.ivillage.com/kardashian-clothing-line-made-using-slave-labor/1-a-413369

    PS: I think Victoria Beckham’s clothes are made in USA.

  158. Stacey says:

    Fashion mags are vapid, materialistic, patriarchy peddlers. Vogue is just a shallow as Kim K. its a perfect match. Vogue just has this pretentious elitist vibe. They are so goopy. its a joke. so i love that Kim
    Is on the cover!! Shake things up a bit!!

    C listers like Sara Michelle Gellar can turn their noises up to Kim K all they want, but they aren’t relevant enough to get a cover no matter how much they trash Kim
    k. Sour grapes, I suppose.

    Poor Kim wrecked her beautiful face with plastic surgery. Too bad.

  159. Tracy says:

    At least North got to spend some time with her parents?

  160. snowflake says:

    why doesn’t she ever smile w her teeth showing? i know it’s not b/c theyre messed up. is she afraid she’ll show a wrinkle? she’s always so fake and posed in her pictures. does she have any thing better to do than take selfies, instagram, whatever the kids are doing these days ?!!

  161. Isabelle says:

    I have a subscription to Vogue. Decided to not renew after this cover. Think I’ll actually send it back to the receiver, my form of protest. Also sent an e-mail to Vogue about why I won’t be renewing and will never subscribe to them again. I would subscribe to People magazine if I wanted to see celebrity trash on the cover.

  162. Jh says:

    Y’all need to just calm down. It’s one cover. And they both look good. Yeah, I said it. How many of you people actually even read Vogue? I mean, really. It was Bound (ha) to happen- especially with all the speculation and controversy. But all this hoopla? It’s definitely more insane than the cover.
    And I am NOT a KK fan. But she’s pretty and has cultural influence, whether you like it or not. And I really like Kanye. And calling him a thug? That’s what stands out after everything he has accomplished? That’s how you describe him? Wow, that’s just crazy. And yes, borderline racist. If not totally racist.

    • LadyS says:

      I’m black and until yesterday was a Vogue subscriber (even got it on my iPad) and I assure you this backlash is not about race. Kanye has a bit of respect from fashion folk, gets featured on the best dressed lists all the time. I don’t like him at all, but give him props for his style. He has become a thug since entering into a relationship with this woman. It has soiled any accomplishments he may have had. I can’t take him seriously anymore because I have to consider this personal life choice to be reflective of something dirty within him as well. Kim is the biggest problem here though. She’s the embodiment of so much of the scum ruining our world. There are more deserving people for that cover and it matters because even though Vogue may not be for everyone it has come to be representative of a certain level of class and decorum. I mean for fucks sake First Ladies get the covers, Oscar winners, Olympic athletes, influential writers, etc; all people with some level of accomplishment that goes beyond a sex tape and cheap reality show. Not everyone may like what Vogue sells and that’s fine, but we can’t deny that it is a gatekeeper of some of the best and most influential people in our culture. To exalt Kim to that level cheapens everyone else who has been or will be (not that they matter anymore) on that cover. All my respect is lost.

    • Anne says:

      It’s true that Kim Kardashian has cultural influence. Her celebrity is a type of accomplishment. Good for her, actually, for successfully pursuing the life that she wants. The question i think people are responding to is whether or not it is the kind of influence that should be lauded. In my opinion, it is not.

    • Francis says:

      +1000
      They look good and it will most likely sell. Anna knew exactly what she was doing.
      Lena Durhams cover was the one people should have been moaning about it was awful, IMO.
      Kim sells, Kanye sells, controversy sells and I don’t get the complaints it’s one cover.

  163. Skye says:

    The only logical conclusion to draw from all this: somewhere in Kanye’s vault is a photo of A.Dubs eating ice cream straight from the carton, wearing nothing but a slouchy sweatshirt covered in cheerleading kitty-cats. I mean, SERIOUSLY….the cover is bad enough, but WHAT caliber gun mussed her bob to produce that slobbering love letter? Jesus.

    • CoolWhipLite says:

      Skye, I am so with you on your theory. When I saw the announcement about the cover, the first thing that came to mind was blackmail. PMK’s flying monkeys definitely worked overtime to find some junk on AW or someone very close to her.

  164. betty says:

    I must be old school because I am wondering what the big ado is about. I am a subscriber and half the time I glance at the cover and could not tell you who was on last month’s cover I know a lot of people despise this couple. But this is a fashion magazine and Kim is sporting her wedding dress or a facsimile.so why the outcry. Sarah not liking the cover is one thing but encouraging other to follow her lead is different Her being an actress I hope she does not get te same backlash if someone dislikes a picture or series she is in.. An some are being lead like sheep in a slaughter .Some are so self rightous about it also. If you are going to fight a cause find one that is worthwhile not about a rapper and a reality show. on a magazine cover that will change next month. All the publicity for them is just making them richer.

  165. Kaylan says:

    Cant figure out what they did to get on the cover of vogue. … What an insult to the talented people on the past covers.
    I say boycott this wedding I’m tired of them thinking people actually like them and that they have some kind of talent.

  166. Vilodemeanus says:

    Vogue would have done better with having Jenna Jameson on the cover, at least it would have been honest, rather than foisting this pig on the public. WE KNOW WHAT SHE IS. No matter how many soft focus lens shots you do, she’s still a piss covered D list porn star. Vogue just died.

  167. Dinah says:

    Who honestly still looks to (American) Vogue as leading the conversation about fashion? Their editorials have been repetitive and droll for years now, and the magazine has been increasingly celebrity driven. What’s the anger about? Vogue has been on the decline for a decade. Why not cancel your subscription when the racist LeBron James cover came out in 2008? Yes, Kim’s irritating, but her celebrity was created by the American public. A broad range of people recognize her, which works for a cover image. Why presume that Vogue’s decision to put her on the cover is a statement that suggests that they support her choices/lifestyle/persona? Why not read it as a celebrity focused magazine choosing a cover that catered to its celebrity focused audience? It’s a large scale publication; they aren’t trying to be cutting edge. They’re trying to attract the attention of as many people as possible. This certainly did it.

  168. pauline says:

    I’m disgusted by this cover… It shows that ANYONE (including a crazy violent guy with a superority complex and a cheap botoxed porn star) can be on cover of a prestigious magazine, if they are rich enough and pushy enough.
    As a french citizen, I also find ridiculous that they tried very persistantly to privatize Château of Versailles for their wedding… not even a president can do that, so who do they think they are??
    Fucking vain and narcissist people. I feel sorry for that North kid.

  169. GIRLFACE says:

    That’s a beautiful dress but this is a pukerous travesty of a low point for Vogue. I’ve been losing interest in Vogue for awhile but barf. Her eye makeup looks like she’s a 17yo hot topic employee.

  170. Alin says:

    I have to say, i’m disappointed with my youth idol “Buffy”… come on guys it´s just a cover!

    I don´t understand why people are so bitchy. It´s a cover of a fashion mag and Kardashian is obviously a big fashion victim and has her own fashion line… so i see nothing wrong with her on the cover. Better than some singers/ actresses without real interest in fashion. There were worse Vogue covers in the last years. At least this cover was really important for Kim and not just promo for an album or movie.

    • Nadines says:

      Sarah Michelle has every right to speak out against this. Anna Wintour herself has banned many other celebs( With actual talent and a reason for fame) from being on Vogue, so it looks hypocritical for Anna to put this pissed on porn star on a prestigious fashion magazine cover rather then accomplished women such as Victoria Beckham or Kerry Washington. There is no reason for her or even Kanye to be on the cover for Vogue. Many people actually like Vogue because it had standereds and now it doesn’t.
      I think its okay for an actress/singer to come on Vogue if they have something to promote, whats so wrong with that? That’s actually a good thing. Kim doesn’t have a proper career in anything. What is the point of this cover when she and Kanye are actually in the worst phase of their’ careers’? Kim shitty show is down in ratings, and Kanye can’t sell out his concert tickets anymore.
      And what does Kim do that is so inspiring to people? Make sex tapes? Get pisssed on? Ran a stupid reality tv show? Flaunt a lavish life without working hard for it?
      The woman is disgusting inside and outside. Same with Kanye.
      The “most talked about couple” part was truly laughable. Nobody really talk about them outside the internet. I even know people that don’t know who Kim or Kanye are. Sorry but that should go to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or the Beckhams and Will and Kate. Everyone atleast know who they are.

  171. Jaded says:

    And Wintour has consistently refused to put Victoria Beckham on the cover. A woman who has worked very hard to produce a very successful clothing line. A woman who is dressing some of the most famous women in the world. A woman who has won prestigious fashion awards. A woman who didn’t have to rely on producing a sex tape to gain notoriety. Say what you will about Posh but she’s a successful mother, businesswoman, and has had a happy, solid marriage even through some bumpy times.

    And Wintour puts K&K on the cover….what is she trying to do? Turn it into People magazine?

    *Shakes head in disgust*

  172. T says:

    Kim looks terrible. Her dark circles under her eyes are coming through. Her posture is awful on the cover. Her hands over his, she appears disgusted to touching his hands. The rest if the photos? My lawd, they look like they are from an iPhone! No one looks happy either, including the baby! The body language and expressions are so revealing, of a couple that is not in love and a family that is not happy. No surprise the pics are sexualized….that’s what’s she only known for. Anyone can be on Vogue now….anyone.

  173. Ruyana says:

    That poor baby still has Kanye jaws.

    Garage pix looks like his blow-up doll broke and he’s trying to fix it.

  174. truthful says:

    her clothes are in Sears and she is on Vogue…for her “sausage style” of dressing..
    I have unsubscribed from Vogue.

    ps. North looks cute

  175. Paliedila says:

    Victoria Beckham is probably laughing her ass off now and not really crying. Wintour repeadlty turned her down for a Vogue cover, but then gave in this stupid rapper and his reality tv ho looking girlfriend and their baby, who has Canines looks. Its nice how Canine West and Kim Kartrashian probably bullied their way into getting this cover.
    In the end, Victoria , former Spice girl and successful, A list designer, who is married at David Beckham, an A list soccer player, wins. Canine only wishes he and his loser are on the Beckhems level and A List couple status.
    And Canine and Kartrashian are actually losing their popularity, no amount of pap calls, Vogue covers, 30 million dollar wedding will ever help them stay famous.
    Anna Wintour was apparently denied front row seats to some fashion show recently, I guess its because of her association with Canine and his reality tv ho gf?

  176. mimif says:

    Has an article on CB ever had this many comments before? Oh, the tender irony…

    • betty says:

      I bet if it was about needy kids and child abuse or something wortwhile. there would be fewer comments. It just shows where some people’s interest lie.

      • Eve says:

        I agree but this is a celebrity site in the end of the day, I for one come here to forget about life’s serious problems and have fun talking about stupid celebrities and their idiotically funny antics. There are plenty of other websites that people can go and discuss life’s real serious issues in large masses that have nothing to do with celebrities. Also, just because people talk a lot about Kim K on this website and other celebrity websites does not mean she has any value in people’s real life, it just means she is only good for people to gossip over when they are bored and on a lunch break, so let’s not confuse this as something meaningful.

      • Lisa says:

        So true, Betty.

        I am more appalled by the comments and outrage about a silly and frivolous magazine cover then I am by the antics of this dumb couple.

        I am a fan of neither but don’ t get what the big deal is.

  177. Tails says:

    Lol i like the subtle shade thrown at kate upton with the “selfie made and the rise of the social media supermodel”, or maybe it just sounds kinda catty to me.

    Sarah Michelle Geller was so mad about this that she cancelled her subscription. She tweeted about it an US magazine documented it.

    I love that first photo with the car. It should have the caption: “How to smuggle a stiff corpse out of your house – step one”.

  181. idk says:

    Kanye and his damn leather pants. He even wears them when it’s 80 degrees outside. That can’t be good for the skin. Actually, I’ve never seen him in shorts and have no idea what his legs look like. I’ve never seen pics of him leaving a gym in workout gear or anything. Maybe because he’s Yeezus, he can eat what he wants and never gain weight.

    March 21, 2014 at 2:53 pm
    But it will sell well. Just as these threadds of Kim get tons of comments. Kim is making loads because people will climb over eachother to hate on her. So much so that they’ll buy mags and read the article.
    /////////////////////////////////////////////

    Absolutely I’m laughing so hard because it will sell and I was reading a Fashion site and a designer said believe it or not but Kim K wears something and they’ll get more requests for that item or dress than any other celebrity. Yes she sells and so does Kanye, huge fan base.
    Already my elderly Aunt came in and asked me to buy her the magazine when I go to the new stands and she hasn’t touched a Vogue magazine since the 80s.

    The worst Vogue cover was Lena Durham the girl from Girls, really awful cover. IMO
    And Adele the singer was the worst selling Vogue cover ever. So you’d be surprised what sells and what doesn’t. I suppose we’ll see.

    I think the cover is attractive. Kim’s face is beautiful.

  183. SnarkGirl says:

    The poor kid “WTF have I gotten myself into here?”

    I gave up on Vogue (and every other women’s/fashion magazine) years ago when I realized it was about 25% content and 75% advertising. I’m not going to pay for the ‘privilege’ of reading ads.

  184. forsooth says:

    Anyone else not understand the photo against the car with the exercise machine in the background? That just looks cheap? Even overlooking the subject matter, these are simply poor photographs IMO. They don’t even look professional grade or professionally styled. Perhaps I could overlook the subject if there was some artfulness about the photos themselves, but these are on the whole merely lifeless and amateur.

    • Helvetica says:

      “Cheap” is very suiting to Kim K so it’s vastly appropriate, IMO.

      They could dress her in the most luxurious clothes and she will always only look like a streetwalker. People either have class or they don’t. She doesn’t. Never has. She is the antithesis to elegance.

      Vogue got it way wrong.

  185. aquarius64 says:

    500 comments, and I understand why. This is a travesty. I don’t read Vogue but I always seen it as the gold standard for fashion. Putting the Kar-trashian on the cover just cheapen it. Any desire to pick up a copy was killed when Wintour made the decision to feature her and her anger management challenged baby daddy. It looks like a tabloid now. I’m surprised there are no YouTube videos of a bonfire of old Vogue issues; or worse, getting this issue and peeing on it. I think the reason why Kanye pushed and got the Vogue cover for Kim is to buy her respectability. He knows the mother of his child is seen as the village bike and she is a woman his late mother would have disapproved of – loudly. (Be honest ladies, would you want your son bring a woman like Kim home?) If I remember correctly her ex Reggie Bush’s family had no love for Kim (they tolerated her); and her 72-day marriage-for-profit to Kris Humphries proves she’s not wife material. And if Kanye didn’t care, why the hissy fits in interviews and Twitter about Kim not getting recognized, like getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? (I hope the powers that be hold the line there and still say no.) The bottom line is Kanye knows Kim is precieved-let’s stop kidding ourselves, IS- a scandalous hoochie and HE doesn’t want to be seen as taking out the trash; hence the push. Too late.

    That’s why Kim is given cover$. IMO Despite the bashing she gets, the woman sell$.

    I am outraged at this! It is enough having this trashy reality tv star in all the mainstream media and now she has tainted the one fashion magazine which claims elegance. Def not buying, It’s time for American media to get real and speak truthfully of these kind of trashy stars, quit the pageant behavior.
