Kim Kardashian trying to get a Vogue cover, but Anna Wintour says ‘hell to the no’

A few days ago, Radar had an early excerpt from an interesting Star Mag story. You see, Anna Wintour hates Kim Kardashian. This hate-on has been going on for a while, but Wintour took it to the next level last year when one of Anna’s favorite men, Kanye West, began dating She Who Shall Never Be High-Fashion. Anna refused to extend an invitation to Kim to last year’s Met Gala, and sources claimed Anna openly snubbed Kim during New York Fashion Week last fall. Radar said that Anna was looking to ban Kim from this year’s Met Gala too, even though Kanye is set to perform at this year’s punk-themed event. Well, the print edition of Star had even more stuff, and it gets even better and more delusional:

“The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim refuses to buy her way in,” says a source.

That may change this year, since Kanye is set to perform at the May 6 soiree, which will have a punk theme and Kanye will surely be free to take Kim as his plus one.

While Kim should feel fortunate to simply attend the party, the reality starlet is pressing her luck and aiming for the ultimate Vogue approval: a cover pictorial!

“Kanye is practically begging Anna to make it happen,” explains the tipster, “but so far, his pleas haven’t worked. He might have a better shot if he offered an at-home feature with their baby.”

Though even that seems unlikely as Anna Wintour reportedly sniped to friends that Kim would grace her magazine’s cover “over her dead body.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

So, if I’m getting this right, Anna is all “Your girlfriend can buy a ticket if she really wants to come to the gala” and Kanye is all “Girl, imma let you finish, but Kim is the most fashionable girl in the whole world! Not only is she coming to the event, you’re gonna put her on the cover!!” So, while I think Nuclear Wintour is fighting a losing battle with the Met Gala, I think Anna is saving her strength for more important battles. Kim is going to the Met Gala, for sure. It’s May 6 – she’ll be seven months pregnant and by God, she will find some horribly tacky couture gown and it will be a disaster, but it’s happening and we need to accept it. But Wintour will NEVER, EVER allow Kim anywhere near Vogue. Never. Ever. Which is fine with me – I get tired of Kim’s magazine shoots. She’s not an interesting subject at all.

    Anna is my home girl!

    • BB says:

      I thought Kim’s trial date was set for May 6th? If so, then she would not be at the Met Gala.

    • Gwyneth says:

      Anna is jealous. Kim is Marilyn Monroe of our times. She is an icon. She should be on the cover of september issue.

      • Daahling says:

        Someone mentioned the other day how Kim is the epitome of class. She’s right. She’s like American royalty. We should have national Kim day complete with daily viewings of her blockbuster porn tape. If by Vogue, you mean of Penthouse, and by cover you meant the back advertising pages, I concur. 😉

      • Jenny says:

        Wait… Just making sure…that was sarcasm…right????

      • Dawn says:

        You are kidding right? The name Marilyn Monroe and Kim Kraptrashian should NEVER EVER be uttered in the same sentence because one had talent and one does not. One oozed sex appeal on the big screen and in life and one just had sex and sold the video. Guess who?!

      • Prince says:

        What a delusional comment. See your ENT before you weigh in.

    • Daahling says:

      Totally sarcastic! Lol, I’m scared that came across so convincingly! 🙂

      • Marion says:

        Haha! I just assumed momager Kris was a celeb blog Kreeper and had kommented on Kimmy’s behalf.

      • Sugar says:

        got it with the first word:) only.only .only could sarcastic praise sound so real when it comes to Kim because she is so fake that real can only be sarcastic-kinda like a brain twister-fun stuff

    • karmasabiatch! says:

      Anna is a bully.

      While I don’t disagree with her sentiment regarding Kim K, she is a notorious b-word – they don’t call her ‘Nuclear Wintour‘ for nothing. She’s gotten even more power-crazed since pulling off her fashion industry coup for Obama. Ambassador to London next, I guess. SRSLY??

  2. brin says:

    Team Anna…she’s no fool!

  3. Dawn says:

    Other sites are saying Kanye is begging Anna to give Kim the cover. Apparently she love Kanye for some reason but keeps on saying NO to him about Kim! If Anna caves and gives Kim a cover I swear here and now I will never buy another Vogue. God in all but one picture she has her mouth open again. So another day, another picture of Kim doing nothing. This is getting sad.

    • Kim does not belong on Vogue or Vanity Fair but lately these so called high class mags are lowering their standards … it seems anybody and everybody has a chance. I’ll bet that she will be there if Kanye pays enough $$$ and he will.

    • gefeylich says:

      Please. If Wintour won’t give a Vogue cover to Victoria Beckham (who is usually impeccably dressed and now a credible fashion designer), there’s no way in hell she’ll give one to the tacky, dull, taste-and-charm-free Kardashian.

      I’ll bet Kardashian will be prevented from attending the Met Ball. Really, can you imagine her there? It would be a mockery.

    • melca blue says:

      @Dawn,I think I figured out why she has her mouth open all the time. In the first picture with her mouth closed, she has trout face. She really needs to lay off the fillers and let her face be.

  4. Dhavynia says:

    This one time I’m with the old hag

  5. Deb says:

    Damn I never expected to be cheering for Anna, but hell to the yeah. You go girl.

  6. DanaG says:

    Team Anna here. I can’t help but notice that Kim is back at work less then a week after her baby scare. You would think she would get a couple of weeks off but then Kim just can’t stand the thought of not being papped it seems. We would never hear the end of Kim on Vogue. Kim 7 months pregnant in a horrible dress even when she isn’t pregnant she looks a mess anyway.

  7. That girl says:

    She does look quite pretty in these pics though.

    • SydneySpy says:

      I had never heard of this vapid young woman before my son”s girlfriend would commandeer the tv to watch their show. She did used to be very attractive, with her dark good looks. But she’s looking more and more fake every month. Those lips. They make her look like all the other plastic celebrities. According to the book, “Office Politics”, it’s no longer simply about having talent, creativity and working hard, as Ms Wintour has always done. Climbing the ladder, self-promotion and creating a cult following is a skill, too. I cannot stand any of the Kardashians. They have become a parody of themselves.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        To be fair, Wintour only got the spot because her powerful father saw that she wasn’t the brightest of his kids and decided that Vogue would be her job. Then Vogue was her job. She admits as much. But yes, Say No To Kim.

  8. marie says:

    Go Anna, Kim annoys me. I really wish she’d quit jackin with her face.

  9. Blue Jean says:

    I see she is still taking mouth-breathing lessons from Kanye…. which automatically lowers their perceived IQ about 20 points. I wish the entire media would put a year long moratorium on Kim K/any K news articles.

  10. oh dear says:

    wth is going on with her lips lately? is she having the “flu” again?

    • emmie_a says:

      I’m guessing injecting crap into your lips can’t be good for the baby. But of course she did inject crap into her lips because all she thinks about is herself.

      • Lulu says:

        It’s ok to use fillers while pregnant. Just no Botox, which she isn’t using, because she has photos showing her frowning, and that is the first time I have EVER seen that. Probably one reason she got the bangs – to cover her imperfect frown prone forehead.

        I’m guessing she is also messing with the fillers so much, because it is ALL she can do.

        Oops – signed: Lulu.T.O.

  11. MsAubra says:

    Yeah right Kanye would demand Anna put Kim in the magazine or on the cover! PUHLEAZE!!! He wants his life!

  12. Dinah says:

    You know how there is a series of tv commercials about ‘ the world’s most interesting man’?

    Well, meet the world’s least interesting woman. Gag.

    • Susie Q says:

      Although beautiful, she really is the most uninteresting person.

      • gefeylich says:

        That “beauty” comes from about 12 pounds of makeup on her face. Without it Kardashian is as plain as dishwater.

  13. Hautie says:

    Honestly, I am not buying most of this allege story.

    I just can not believe, that Kim would ever want her first trip to the MET gala to happen… when she is as big as a barn. Wearing taffeta! Oh wait… taffeta with feathers!

    And if Anna really wanted to be cruel. She would offer a “maybe” cover…

    “Maybe” Kim could have the cover… if Kim dropped 50 pounds. And that would be 50, from her pre-pregnancy weight.

    Because Anna likes them skinny-skinny.

  14. tracking says:

    Plastic and trashy is not Anna’s bag.

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

    team Anna Wintour! stay strong!

  16. whybenice says:

    Kim’s reminding me of Octomom in some of those pictures … SHUDDER

  17. megsie says:

    I’m so enjoying the image of Anna Wintour bravely guarding the gates of high fashion against an onslaught of heathen Kardashians.

  18. bns says:

    His “please” haven’t worked, you guys.

  19. Faye says:

    I understand why Anna Wintour hates Kim . . .I just can’t fathom the love affair with Kanye West. She’s photographed sitting next to him at tons of fashion shows and events. Why?! He’s a low-rent thug with zero fashion sense — you hardly even see him in a nicely-cut suit. He’s on Kim’s level, for sure.

  20. anneesezz says:

    I never thought I’d be siding with Anna Wintour. I doubt anyone is bullying her into anything.

  21. MsMileHigh says:

    Kim is such a MOUTH BREATHER! She is so gross and so aware of the cameras constantly on her!

    I, too, am sick of her in magazines. She offers nothing, has nothing to say, does nothing interesting, etc. It’s a waste of space just as much as Kim is a waste of oxygen.

    • littlestar says:

      Mouth breathers gross me out too. And people who are constantly photographed with their mouths hanging open are horrible too. Worst offenders of this: Kim K, J-Lo, Melania Trump, the York Sisters, Lindsay Lohan.

      Edit: I just looked at these photos of Kim again. Look at driving around with her mouth open! Wtf! She looks STOOPID.

  22. Ms Kay says:

    Vogue has been really shit lately, with the likes of Blake Lively and other crap people on the cover, so I highly doubt Kim will make it, otherwise Anna can say bye bye to her career.

  23. dorothy says:

    Vogue has standards, KK needs to troll around the Globe offices, perhaps she could score a cover there.

  24. Lindsey says:

    I think Kim breathes through her mouth because she has shaved down so much of her nose.

  25. lady mary. says:

    ooh ,its punk themed this year ,will be fun to watch then,actually if i were anna ,i would let her attend this years punk themed just to see how ridiculous she would look ,i would ask her to incorporate fisnet and a pink mohawk as a must or else no entry

  26. Pippa says:

    Eh. I do find it interesting that they’re clearly not above letting fame-whore celebrities-for-nothing e.g. Alexa Chung on the cover but Kim is where they draw the line

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      Alexa Chung, however vapid, famewhorey, and uninteresting, is a model. That puts her a few notches above Kim. Chung, at the very least works at her legit job, and is obviously somewhat respected in the modeling industry…while Kim is known for a sex tape and fake wedding/marriage.

      • gefeylich says:

        Thank you. Chung and Lively are as dull, stupid and self-promoting as Kardashian, but you’re right: both have real jobs, however bad they are at them. Kardashian is just a complete zero who started out as Paris Hilton’s best bud and went on from there (sex tape, horrible reality show, fake wedding, laughable “singing and fashion career,” etc.).

  27. elceibeno08 says:

    Anna Wintour has spoken; No Vogue cover for Kim Kardashian. I can’t believe Kim started her career by making a sex video and now she wants to be acknowledged by the best and finest of society. Just because Kim has made boatloads of money doesn’t mean she is upper crust.

    • Cece says:

      When you sell the sex video for money, it’s called porn. Let’s call it what it is. Agree with you on all the rest.

      • elceibeno08 says:

        I was actually being kind when I said sex video. You are right,it is pretty much porn because she used it to advance her career and to make money just like any porn actor/actress would. What does Kim expect? To be knighted by Queen Elizabeth?

  28. Simple Red says:

    I heard Kanye is asking her to do that- to allow Kim on the cover..
    So I wonder her case start in May don’t think she’ll be there but knowing Kim anything possible

  29. The Original Mia says:

    Can she not close her mouth or does she truly believe it’s sexy?

    If Anna won’t be Vicky B on her cover, she most surely won’t put walking fashion disaster Kim on the cover.

  30. littlestar says:

    There is no way Kim will ever be on the cover of Vogue. She is the ANTITHESIS of what it means to be a Vogue cover girl. Putting her on the cover would bring Vogue down in the magazine hierarchy – Kim graces the cover of Star and US Magazine for the love of gahd! No way would Vogue risk losing their credibility over a woman who starred in a homemade sex tape. Was Paris Hilton ever on the cover of Vogue during the height of her fame?…

    P.S. I rarely buy Vogue now because I feel as though it has gone down the drain the past decade or so. If Kim is put on the cover, I will NEVER buy Vogue again! Dramatic, but true :).

    • lucy says:

      Littlestar, I feel your pain.

      Do you mean “She is the ANTITHESIS of what it *MEANT* to be a Vogue cover girl?” Because Actual Vogue Cover Girls were replaced with bland earnest PR-saturated over-exposed over-airbrushed non-models 2 long spoonfed decades ago. 🙁 I think what you and I used to appreciate Vogue for has long been gone.

      Before Wintour ran Vogue into the ground, it used to be a high fashion trend-SETTING art & lifestyle ~bible~. It had coffee table book status and content, with its high-end photographers, large(r) format, thick glossy paper stock.

      I know the publishing industry is on a respirator, but Wintour’s style-impaired myopia has been toxic to this patient. Like you, I lament its demise.

      ps. To answer your question, the Hilton sisters were often mentioned in the society pages of Vogue, but not ever featured as fashion ambassadors of any kind or on the cover.

      • TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

        Well said Lucy and lunamiel; A few points;
        I too miss the supermodel era of the 80s/90s;
        Second, the decline started 10-12 yrs ago even in the late 90s Giselle,Bridget Hall, Kirsty Hume,etc. could get a Vogue cover;
        The end of the supermodel era killed the allure and opened the way for actresses and c-d listers; and
        Big point – once conglomerates started buying the mags, and with their interests in tv/music/film, the fashion mags were turned into advertising extensions; Another example where commerce ruins art.
        The NY modeling agencies haven’t helped themselves by signing way too many bland skeletons and not promoting the attractive ones they have.

  31. Starllight says:

    I don’t think this is true. Why would Kim do that if she did not like her.

  32. bondbabe says:

    Like I’ve stated before—there will be no Vogue cover because wearing piss is not a fashion statement.

  33. Nava says:

    I noticed Kim isn’t wearing her seatbelt, I’m thinking two reasons why: #1. She doesn’t want to wrinkle her fashion forward clothes. #2. She waiting for the extra long extension belt to arrive, so she can strap in her wide load……either way dumbass, Kim, buckle up, if not for your safety do it for your child.

  34. The Original G says:

    A Kim cover? Never. Vogue has advertisers to keep happy. High end advertisers.

    Most of them would pay Kim, not to weary their stuff.

  35. Original A says:

    Hahaha. Anna would never put Kim on the cover…

  36. LeeLoo says:

    Don’t worry, Kim will turn it into a whole “woe is me. Anna is so mean to me!” With her little pathetic baby voice. But I 100% see Kim and Kris Jenner trying to victimise themselves to try and force Anna’s hand. What they fail to realize is Anna is so much of a bitch that she won’t care.

    I don’t think Kim will show up to the Met Gala. She’ll end up making some comment about how she didn’t go somewhere it was obvious she’s not wanted and try to publicly call out Anna only to realize that Anne Wintour can in fact ruin her life and some of Kim’s endorsement deals will mysteriously disappear. Anne has a type of power that she rarely uses but I can see being used if Kim says one negative word about her.

    • Dawn says:

      Oh I think you are giving Kim waaay too much credit. If Kayneee manages to get her an invite to the Met you bet her big ass she will show up! Nothing she loves more than showing the world just how high and mighty she is after all.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Also true. No matter what, I do think Kim and her Pimp Mommy are stupid enough to paint Anne as this “big mean bully” when Anne refuses to deign Kim with even so much as a hello. I know they think they will have enough clout to do so. Only problem is that it will deliciously backfire.

    • Dawn says:

      I so agree!

  37. melmel says:

    I miss the days when supermodels were on the cover of magazines.

    • lucy says:

      You are not alone.

    • Nev says:


      so many new happening new models too!!!

    • c'est la vie says:

      You’re right and I miss them too. How many godawful b to d list starlets can they possibly put on the cover?

      Models sre meant to be on the cover. That’s why they’re models FFS.

      Starlets aren’t. They’re not as interesting as the supermodels were. I’m even beginning to miss Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell…

  38. lunamiel says:

    I second Anna Wintour’s Hell to the no. Sigh, I miss the Supermodel era of the late 80’s and early 90’s when all fashion magazines had actual models on the covers instead of actors and B-C list celebutantes.

    • lucy says:

      Agreed! Taking a stand against the Kardashian plague is the only thing I applaud Wintour for. Wintour’s sullying of the Vogue brand by replacing models with actresses, politicians, and tone-deaf booty-shaking lip sync’ers is epidemic. The extreme airbrushing is also tacky and vulgar. Given what Wintour has turned the magazine into (a new money/old queen/bad taste exposition riding the back of pop culture), I don’t really understand the opposition to featuring Kardashians. Sadly, that would be par for the course.

  39. erika says:

    well, good mornin’ Miss Donald Duck…nice lips pout trout!

    god…don’t jump on the delusional train tracks like Lohan…

    Wintour SHOULD put KK on the cover, the entire mag can be dedicated to Fashion Do’s and DON’TS!!!

  40. Alana Fajina says:

    I feel bad for bagging on a preggers chick but it’s Kim for Pete’s Sake, I just can’t help myself. I feel terrible for secretly loving the fact that she is getting So Huge- they were even mentioning it on KROQ yesterday.
    I’ve always loved me some Ice Queen Wintour though, so I am also loving this snub. I can buy her not being on a Vogue cover, but so help me if she is at that Gala!!!! lol

  41. mrs j says:

    Why would Vogue put a no talent porn whore who’s ass is bigger than a bus on a cover. In one of her outfits she was wearing you could see her FAKE BABY BUMP!

  42. anne says:


  43. LeeLoo says:

    Also have any negative effects of using botox and fillers been reported during pregnancy? It really looks like Kim is still getting regular injections.

  44. lucy says:


    You know who is NOT a mouth-breather?
    Anyone worthwhile.

  45. buckley says:

    Ha! she is spilling out of that chair on pic one.

  46. Lauren says:

    I almost want Kim to get a cover because that would be a huge FU to Victoria Beckham, who also can’t land the cover of US vogue

  47. Victoria says:

    Please Anna, you are right: Vogue has standards. Remember the demand that Victoria Beckham wanted a cover as well and even had her bolt-ons removed for a Vogue cover?

    • Cece says:

      Those bolt-ons haven’t gone anywhere!! maybe they’re smaller, but there is nothing real looking about those puppies!

  48. Millie says:

    I doubt that we will never never never see a person who’s claim to fame is a porn tape released by their mom, on the cover of Vogue…I’m just saying
    I love Anna

  49. Cece says:

    Just curious — have other porn actresses had magazine covers? Are there other pron actresses invited to the Met Ball? I can see a lot of logic in drawing the line there. I know that Jenna Jameson kinda went mainstream, but of course she was supposed to be good at what she did. A porn star like Kim, and a crappy one at that, doesn’t seem like Vogue or Met Ball material.

  50. KLC says:

    Starting to notice, of the (admittedly few) gossip sites I frequent, Celebitchy is the one that keeps running Kim Trash articles. Others do not mention her nor her outfits at all.

  51. Gossip Garl says:

    last pic:FUGLiest trousers..EVA!
