Anna Wintour still hates and refuses to acknowledge Kim Kardashian

Anna Wintour hates Kim Kardashian. The hate-on is at the point where Nuclear Wintour can’t even pretend that she doesn’t know who Kim Kardashian is. Anna is actively, publicly snubbing Kim at this point. For last year’s Met Gala, it was widely reported that Wintour had “banned” Kim from coming with Kanye West, although Kim later claimed that she didn’t even want to come to the Met Gala because she had work in LA. Then Wintour allegedly snubbed Kim again during NY Fashion Week last fall! In both instances, Wintour never denied the reports that she hated (or hates) Kim. And now that Kim is pregnant with Kanye’s baby… well, Wintour still won’t acknowledge Kim.

Kim Kardashian may have snagged an A-list baby daddy, but that hasn’t scored her any points with Anna Wintour!

The 32-year-old reality star is expecting her first child with one of the legendary Vogue editor’s favorite male fashionistas, Kanye West, but the ice queen still refuses to acknowledge Kim as a bona fide celebrity, according to a report in new issue of Star magazine.

“For some reason, she thinks Kanye is terrific,” a source dishes to Star about Wintour’s infatuation with the rapper, revealing that Anna refused to even acknowledge Kardashian when she saw the couple at New York Fashion Week recently and thinks she is the worst thing since socks with sandals! exclusively revealed that Kim was mortified when Wintour refused to invite her to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala last year, despite Kanye being a welcome guest.

Will Kanye be able to get Kim on the list for the swanky soiree this year? Find out in this week’s Star magazine — on newsstands Thursday!

Part of me thinks that it’s good that at least one person is “holding the line” between legitimate celebrities and famewhore Kardashians. But in today’s celebutainment culture, that line gets crossed so often that it seems more like Wintour just specifically hates the Kardashians. Like, other famewhores and C-listers are welcome to the Met Gala so there really are no standards other than “just don’t be a Kardashian.” And seriously, if Kanye wants to have Kim as his date at the Met Gala… would that be the worst thing? Wouldn’t it be good gossip?

    The title of this article made me completely change my mind about Anna Wintour!

    • BB says:

      I totally understand some people who will not acknowledge reality tv people. It’s not just the Kardashian’s, all reality tv personalities that try to be apart of legit celebrity gatherings.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      I like anyone who can embarrass Kim.
      And….Does Anna resemble Grumpy Cat…..Just a tiny bit? 😆

    • Jennifer says:

      She still hates Kardashians but has no problem with putting on the cover b-listers and cheap attention whores. There is no difference between Vogue and other magazines right now. People need to stop pretend that Anna W. is so above it. She is not above it she is part of it. When I see Taylor S. on the Vogue cover I think – why? So why not Kardashians.

      • Annie says:

        She’s an award winning musician and made over 50 million last year. You liking her or not is irrelevant to her accomplishments being real or not. She didn’t become famous for selling sex tapes and her scandals and her life. She writes music about her life (that is all art ever), she sings, she sells out stadiums. Can you really put her at the same level of someone like Kim just because you don’t like her?

        Kim represents everything that is wrong with entertainment today. They are not the same.

      • Dawn says:

        Why not a Kardashian you ask? Well why not Jenna Jameson then…because both Kim and Jenna are famous for the same reason. Only I do believe that Jenna Jameson is a better business woman than Kim could ever hope to be and Jenna is honest in a way that none of the Kraptrashians could ever hope to be. As for TS, she has talent, real talent and it does NOT involve a sex tape. Kim is what she is and that is a paid for party girl, nothing else.

      • PinkSlip says:

        Seriously?? You need this to be explained to you?? Good God, woman….

    • Trillion says:

      This is all kinds of delicious, I agree!

    • Babalon says:


  2. Kaye says:

    Three cheers for Anna Wintour!

  3. lune says:

    What’s more Interesting is Anna’s hate of Victoria Beckham

    • Eleonor says:

      Aaahaha true! Victoria has never EVER been on the cover of Vogue US.

    • Faye says:

      I find that interesting too, but I wonder if that’s more of a Mean Girl British class thing for Anna. Nuclear Wintour is from England, like Victoria, and comes from a more “upper crust” family. Victoria’s parents were very wealthy, but self-made wealth, and she would be considered noveau riche — she’s joked herself that she was far from being actually “Posh” as a teen. I suspect Wintour, the self-appointed style guru and designer king-maker, finds it a bitter pill to swallow that Beckham became a respected, legit designer. If you read Vogue, you’ll notice that rarely are VB clothes used in their shoots.

      • Happymom says:

        Also-remember how totally tacky Victoria used to be? I think we all forget how horrendously gauche she was-that’s another part of why Anna Wintour snubs her.

      • Emmy says:

        She might not dress like it anymore, but dude, she’s married to David Beckham. She is proper chavvy.

      • Faye says:

        Eh, I don’t judge people by their pasts as much (unless they did things that were illegal/immoral). True, she was a right old WAG :), but I like her stuff now. My husband is British and he constantly mocks me for wearing her stuff, because when he lived in England she had a very different image. But I think her line has earned its place in the designer pantheon, and it’s stupid for Wintour to be so snobby (whether VB actually designs any of those clothes is a different discussion).

    • emmie_a says:

      Was anyone from Vogue at VB’s show in NY? Eventually won’t Anna have to acknowledge VB’s fashion line? Or has she done this to other designers?

  4. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    The Kardashians are vulgar. I wouldn’t invite them to my parties, either.

  5. Nev says:

    Anna has drove Vogue into the ground anyways so who cares anyway?!!

    Surprised she hasnt put Taylor Swift on it yet…that’s the caliber of the magazine now sadly enough.

    Vogue Paris or British Vogue has been much more fashion and interesting as of late…some great issues due to the new management.

    • BB says:

      Taylor Swift was Vogue cover for February 2012!

    • i'm french don't kill me says:

      since french Vogue fired Carine Roitfeld,it’s less “interesting”nless refined!even the covers are less good!

    • L says:

      Seriously. Vogue Korea is knocking it out of the park. Wintour has driven the US version into the ground and it’s time for a change.

    • LAK says:

      British Vogue is pedestrian. Has been for a good decade now. It’s hard to believe it is the same fashion magazine it used to be or that it would take the sorts of risks it used to. especially since they haven’t changed Editors in the past 2 decades.

      French Vogue hasn’t been the same since Carine Roitfeld left.

      Japan/Korea/Italian Vogues are the ones that are still innovative.

      American Vogue/India Vogue are more lifestyle magazines than fashion magazines.

      • oliveo says:

        Agree. I only open American Vogue every now and then to see what Grace Coddington’s up to.

    • bns says:

      I agree. They need to get rid of Wintour and bring in someone fresh with innovative ideas.

  6. Talie says:

    Oh please, if Kim really wanted to go, she could buy her own ticket.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      She would be stopped at the door. Kim is desperate to be recognized as an icon by the fashion community. So is Kanye. He loves Kim, but won’t jeopardize his own fashion credibility by bringing kim. And kim will never get in as long as AW has a voice.

      • truthful says:

        Thank uuuuuuuu!

      • TG says:

        Am I missing something? How does Kanye have fashion credibility? Isn’t he the one who has been dressing Kim this past year in those craptacular outfits? Just by association with her and her Klan brings him down to D List level IMO.

      • LAK says:

        TG – When Kanye isn’t being a rapper he is over in Paris interning at the fashion houses which is why he has legitimate fashion show tickets as opposed to being a media catnip for the press.

        He has legit fashion credentials.

        Obviously, fashion and regular clothing aren’t always the same thing, because what he puts on Kim doesn’t necessarily work for her, but you can see the influence in her wardrobe. She used to be all short pouty bodycon dresses in florescent colours AKA a blow up doll. These days she’s experimental. Not hugely fashion experimental, but she doesn’t wear the same thing every day like she used to, and she tries new edgier looks to varying degrees of success.

  7. The Original G says:

    Me too.

  8. Lolly says:

    This is the only good thing Anna Winter has ever done. Now if only we could ban her & her useless family from Earth the world will be on the way to being a better place

  9. marie says:

    ha ha. it might be immature of me, but I find it hilarious. Go Anna!

    (OT does anyone remember the movie The Witches? Anna reminds me of the lady that turned into rat. I think she was eating soup and her face turned very mouse-like)

    • Garvels says:

      I never thought I would agree with this stick insect on anything….but she is right. To me the Kardashians and Ryan Seacrest and E! Opened the door for trash entertainment.

  10. Ranunculus says:

    If I were some famous person Kardashian would be the least person I wanted to be seen, let alone photographed with.

    There are artists, actors, musicians and other people who deserve to be famous, then there are celebrities who only gotten famous by PR tactics and shady famewhoring. Then there is Kardashian who in my opinion is pure trash. I hope Wintour keeps up her resentment.

  11. Nanz01 says:

    I can’t believe I’m about to type this: I agree with Wintour in theory, but in practice? She comes off as a petulant b*tch, which, of course. But Wintour looks worse for being outwardly rude, which only draws more attention to KK and makes KK look, dare I say, sympathetic. Now I hate myself for quasi-defending KK.

    • Emma13 says:

      haha I feel the same way! I don’t like feeling sympathy for KK, but Anna is being overly rude.

    • CC says:

      Good for you lol

      Fortunately for me, I am mostly vaccinated against the sympathy bug.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      I agree. TBH, I just clicked on this story because I like looking at photos of Anna. She’s her own caricature, I always laugh so hard at seeing her smug little evil grin.

      I’m not defending Kim (nevah!) but Anna is such a petulant c-nt I have a hard time finding her agreeable, even when I actually agree with her.

    • Leigh says:

      Agreed. Don’t like the Kardashians, but hate mean girling…and that’s exactly what Wintour is doing. Brutal.

  12. elceibeno08 says:

    Like hell Anna Wintour is going to acknowledge Kim K. Not after Anna saw the pictures of Kim wearing the peplum giraffe-print pants three weeks ago.

    • LadyMTL says:

      LOL, you read my mind! I was thinking that as much of a biotch as Wintour is, she at least doesn’t murder fashion the way KK does. I think the primary reason why Wintour hates KK is that Kim makes anything look cheap…and when you’re trying to peddle super $$ clothing, that’s the last thing you want.

    • Carolyn says:

      But if Karlie Kloss, Cara D or any other “model darling” wore that same outfit, it would be considered fashionable 🙂 Kim just has no fashion sense in any capacity.

  13. Deb says:

    I’m no fan of Anna but this made me LOL

  14. Frenchie says:

    Well Kate Upton paid for her own Met gala ticket($25K). I won’t surprised if Lard-o does the same thing but since she’s “pregnant” I doubt if she even want to attend narcissistic that she is!

  15. MsAubra says:


  16. Celt Lady says:

    Ms. Wintour needs to blend her makeup (see streaked nose and white ring around her mouth in pic #2).

    Perhaps she needs to do a little more work on her self, and spend less time hating others.

    I am NOT a fan of Kim K, but I strongly dislike people who are haters. For any reason.

    • Lulu says:

      +1 This silly line that she’s drawn is as manufactured as her wig.

    • Mia 4S says:

      @Celt Lady, haters for any reason? So you strongly dislike those who hate Mel Gibson? Those who hate Chris Brown when he acts like a violent misogynist? Having an opinion that someone is untalented and pointless does not equal “haters”. I for one hate that word. 🙂 It comes across like the usual, “they tried so you shouldn’t critisize them” nonsense. If you are making millions off the public a certain amount of quality should be a requirement.

    • Nev says:


    • Deedee says:

      I am not sure its hater thing. She has to draw the line somewhere, thats her prerogative, who do you want to invite to your party, you are not gonna include everyone are you? there are a bunch of reality stars who probably wants to be part of that world if they could. Why should they? They have chosen to make their money by way of tacky, vulgar antics and famewhoring that isn’t perhaps how high fashion sees itself. its ridiculous to act as if this is discrimination. Kim cant go to the met ball, well tough shit, save the empathy for real victims of discrimination not someone who is a multimillionaire for staring in some lameass reality show.

  17. Micki says:

    Let me ask:If she acknowledge K.K. who will be the next hopeful for the honour? Snooki perhaps?

  18. Mia 4S says:

    Praise Queen Bitch Anna! Only she could get me into a thread involving…”it”. Although she could ease up on Posh a bit. I’m not a fan but at least she seems to have shown some design skill and isn’t useless!

  19. lady mary. says:

    just for today i would like to say “GOD BLESS HER”, AND let her not astray from true fashion

  20. bullpin says:

    Kanye gives me Leon Talley fever. Kim’s ever changing face gives me Karl Laugerfield fever. So, I shall call them Kanye Talley and Kim Karlaugerfield respectfully.

  21. Kiddo says:

    I can’t imagine why. Kim is the personification of class, good taste, intelligence and all things high fashion.

    • Daahling says:

      I wish I had her level of class and dignity. My one failure as a mother is not leaking my own sex tape, and not getting knocked up by Dude B when still married to Dude A. But hey, a personal goal is to attain that glamour and class Kim has. I’m a hating hater.

      • CC says:

        Sme, I have no idea why I wasted years and years in school, when I could have done the classy thing and released a sex tape.

    • K.T. says:

      Giggles, thanks!

      Anna Wintour wins almost always because she had the best name, plus it’s like her personality. There’s a term for that but, um, brain switched off.
      Also she both puts the line about exactly what Vogue brand is, and what is not, as well as gets so much more press by ignoring the existence of KK, its just brilliant PR. And delicious meanfashion maveness.

  22. Uzi says:

    A few years ago I passed Anna on a NYC street. It was summer,90-something degrees, and everyone, myself included, was sweating bullets. Not her…not a drop of perspiration on her. She was totally put together and fresh as a daisy. I was amazed, and now I really love her for not buying into the Kardashian hype. Thank you Anna!

  23. Skins says:

    Love the fact that she hates Kim, but she has to get over this “Kanye is terrific” thing. Kanye is not terrific, he is a totally overated douchetool

  24. Simple Red says:

    The problem is Kim thinks she is entitled, that alone will turn off anyone; Then add how she became known to the world…

  25. Debbie says:

    Anna is suppose to be the standard barer for fashion and taste, and frankly by refusing to acknowledge the katdashians she is keeping her high standards in tact.

    Good for Anna!

  26. Orlanda says:

    I think Anna should be above this sort of pathetic behaviour. Yes, the Kardashian’s are ‘famewhores’ but isn’t Vogue about promoting unity between women?

    • Debbie says:

      No vogue is not about unity between women it is about FASHION, style and taste. All things kim lacks and whether you like her or not Anna does have all these traits.

    • Allie May says:

      Yes, I agree that Anna should be above this behaviour. I have read that she is generous and charitable, so why she cannot extend the milk of human kindness to Kim K. and possibly have a positive effect on her is beyond me.

      As for Vogue promoting unity between women… that is a beautiful sentiment that is above some individuals you will meet. I agree with you, btw. I have never bought a Vogue magazine nor am I familiar with their humanitarian goals. It seems Anna Wintour herself is concerned with being a person that helps out her fellow human beings, so hopefully that carries over into the magazine.

  27. truthful says:


    At least someone has some sense, good for Anna!

  28. Inconceivable! says:

    At least we know for certain The Devil is NOT wearing the Kardashian Kollection from Sears.

    • Inconceivable! says:

      Then again, does anyone really want that cheaply made, crappy clothing with the kardashian name slapped on it just for sales? As if Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney REALLY sit down and design all those clothes for Sears?! It’s laughable!!

  29. Annie says:

    Stand your ground, Anna! Don’t accept her!

    Seriously, why do people have to be nice to anyone? I don’t like what you stand for, you’re not invited to my potluck.

  30. Dee Cee says:

    I think it has to do with their vulgarity to do whatever for cash.. get to upper class only so they can rip-off original designs;.. stealing artist works, originality of designers.. in jewelry, makeup, perfumes and shoes of which they used the artists work, logo.. sketches, plans slightly altered.. as a money making scheme to launch their exclusive clothing/fashion line to compete with the original, better products..; plus you might suspect the low life KKK’s don’t actually care about their reputation as honest, dependable, charitable wealthy people enough .. to donate their time and money.. to any of the approved charities the elitist fund and endorse.. and beg for invites.. but want to be paid for showing up, have it filmed and use the event for their own publicity..

  31. PinkG says:

    Oh geez. Will K-Trash now blame Anna for her pregnancy stress?

  32. maggiegrace says:

    I never realized what a big nose AW has.

    • NEENAZEE says:

      She’s really not an attractive person… she just does a good job hiding her bizarre features with the Hair, the Glasses and the petite frame.

  33. gg says:

    Wintour’s lower lip has expanded further – it may explode in a few months.

  34. Feebee says:

    See, even Anna Wintour has a redeeming quality. I love, love, love it!

    I hate that I have a teensy eensy problem with it in that Kim is still human and until proven otherwise te legitimate partner of Kanye, so Anna should suck it up occasionally. She doesn’t have to interact in any way but banning her from accompanying her boyfriend is troublesome.

    Now if she wanted to ban Chris Brown, that would be legit! Kim is guilty of many “crimes” but none of them are real.

  35. bar world land says:

    Good! Now if only we could get everyone else on the planet to follow suit…

  36. Onyx XV says:

    The one and only thing Anna Wintour and I will ever agree on, LOL

  37. Starllight says:

    Can we blame her?

  38. bondbabe says:

    Maybe it’s because wearing piss is not a good fashion statement….

  39. NEENAZEE says:

    If Kim asked Anna for a fashion make-over I’ll bet they’d become fast friends… it’s not just the fame-whoring of the K-Klan that annoys Anna, it’s probably the awful, sleazy, tight outfits that Kim parades around in that push her over the edge. It’s really not Anna’s cup of tea!

  40. Eugenia says:

    I hate elitist behavior but in the case of the Kardashians? I’ll allow it. Someone has to draw a line in the sand and stop their encroachment into every aspect of public life.

    I still need Anna to explain her Sienna Miller hard on. I just saw September Issue a few weeks ago and Sienna is a pretty girl but basic to the extreme. Her photo shoot was a joke. The years spent trying to make Sienna happen were such a colossal waste of time but wow what an education in marketing fail!

  41. The originalG says:

    So really, this is funny just because Kim cares so much. Because she’s soooo f’nn pretentious.

    I’m sure that Jessica Simpson is not high on Wintour’s favorite list either. The difference is Simpson doesn’t give a crap about Wintour. She has her customer and she’s whistling all the way to the bank on her Saturday Night Saloon Special Wedges.

  42. HubbaBubba says:

    Not a fan of Kimye but Anna needs to get over herself. Vogue is just a front for ex-pat socialites from the uk. We need to take back our American magazines and send the Anna Wintour, Joanna Coles, Glenda Bailey, and Zanna Roberts Rassi packing!

  43. gefeylich says:

    Heh. More than anything else, this cold shoulder from Wintour will make Kanye dump Kardashian. She’s a liability: classless, tasteless, personality-free, moronic, unbelievably dull.

    Once the kid is born (and God knows whose it really is), bet on Kanye booking ASAP.

  44. HK9 says:

    While I lament the fact that Anna has run American Vogue into the ground, this story made my heart sing. 🙂

  45. Janet says:

    Anna Wintour is a bitch on wheels who has single-handedly destroyed what used to be the greatest fashion magazine in the world. I canceled my subcription to Vogue years ago when she ran that stupid “What-Angelina-Did-Was-Very-Uncool” piece on Jennifer Aniston. She managed to sink Vogue down to the level of In Touch and Star magazine.

  46. palermo says:

    She hates Kim cause she knows Kanye and Riccardo Tisci are the real couple

  47. Deedee says:

    I dont even like Anna Wintour. But Kim is totally wrong for Haute Coutur which is what Wintor champions. The whole attitude and style is tacky and totally wrong for high fashion. She never gets invited to any haute couture shows in Paris or London, the only place she is welcome is the ready to wear designers in nyc. I dont think Wintour is the only one. Is carine roitfeld or karl lagerfeld embracing kim? Dont think so…..

  48. Asdfg says:

    Yeah, Kim Kardashian is a reality tv star but she does work hard. I can’t even deny that and i’m not a fan!

    Can you imagine having to travel all the time for appearances, modeling, etc? She and her sisters have their own fashion brand, The D-A-S-H. Kim is doing more work than most people could ever imagine doing.

    And in my opinion, Anna Wintour isn’t all that. The fact she won’t allow certain people to “whatever fashion event” says it all.

    A fashion show should be about fashion and solely FASHION. It shouldn’t be about the people who attend the event. Please. *rolls eyes*

  49. Grace says:

    Anna truly is ugly on the inside and outside. She’s too old to hate someone decades younger.

  50. Amelia says:

    Can someone please educate me on why Wintour is so important. I know she is the Editor of Vogue but apart from that why does her opinion matter?.
