Vogue Editor-for-life Anna Wintour was adamant that socialite Kim Kardashian would NEVER grace the cover of Vogue magazine. But Kim’s baby daddy Kanye West and Anna are good friends. So it was inevitable that Kanye would put pressure to bear on Wintour to put Kim on the cover.
Wintour and West reached a compromise and put both Kim and Kanye on the cover of the April issue of Vogue. This will very likely be the lowest selling issue in the magazine’s history. Vogue is not the fashion Bible that it once was. And putting Kim and Kanye on the cover is the magazine world’s equivalent of slumming.
