Anna Wintour Releases Statement on KimYe Vogue Cover

The internets went crazzzzy Friday when Vogue dropped their KimYe cover. Kim Kardashian has had her eyes on the cover of Vogue Magazine for a while, as has every fashion lover in the world. It's holy in the eyes of fashionistas. So, it had to be disheartening for Kim Kardashian to hear that Vogue's Head Fashionista in Charge, Anna Wintour just didn't see it for her or her family.

Now, here we are today, and Kim and her fiance Kanye West are front and center on the highly coveted cover. Did Kanye beg Anna Wintour as rumors suggested? Did Anna do it just for Kanye? In response to all of the mayhem and celebs cancelling subscriptions in response to the cover, Anna decided to release a statement to clarify how the spread came about. Read it below and see their beautiful family photos from their spread. Why is Nori SO cute!?:

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 fiancĂ©e 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.
