What just happened ? - Kim and Kanye for Vogue April 2014
- Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for Vogue April 2014. When I saw this, the first thing that I thought was, Anna Wintour what were you thinking? With little more text on the side and pictures of some celebrities this cover would look like the cover of a gossip magazine, which is the most likely place to see Kim and Kanye.
What a setback for Vogue! To me Vogue represented a respectable Fashion Magazine with timeless inspirational issues, photos that would blow your mind with creative stories behind them. Vogue was the gold standard of publications when it comes to fashion, it represented the culturally sophisticated woman who is powerful and chic.
In my opinion Kim and Kanye represent non of the above. They are good for entertainment in other ways to some people and they should stick to that.
I don't know if this is to create controversy and to take the Magazine to other levels but I really don't think this is the way to do that. At the moment the only thing that I love with Vogue is Grace Coddington.
