With all the backlash on the Kim and Kanye Vogue cover happening all over the internet, you would think that Anna Wintour really lost it on this one. I’d say the opposite is true. Kim and Kanye did deserve to be on the Vogue cover, and I expected nothing less than this day to arrive. It is sad that some people decided to cancel their Vogue subscription because of one cover, and now think that Vogue has lowered the high standards. But you can’t please everybody. Now you see that not even Anna Wintour can.
Yes, Kim made a terrible mistake ages ago, but that is part of growing up. The way she took all of that negativity around her choices and turned that into her advantage is very admirable. It takes guts and confidence, and a great supporting family not to mention, to do that. Let me tell you:
Our past doesn’t define who we are now. It only made us the person we are now because we’ve learned from it.
And Kimberley did. She turned her life around and became someone who her mother is really proud of. And isn’t that what counts at the end of the day. Being a mother herself she can teach her daughter not to make the same mistakes as she did, and teach her how to be a strong confident women no matter what people say about you. People talk. That’s just the simple truth. And it is in some people’s nature to see the negative things first, or worse to see the negative things only.
Indeed Vogue is the fashion bible and known for high fashion models who had to meet high standards to make it on the cover. But over the years celebrities have graced the cover ass well. Including the First Lady Michelle Obama who isn’t a high fashion model or Hollywood celebrity, but has such a great style and is in inspiration to so many women all over the world. Now it is not my intention to make a comparison, because we all know that the truth is so far from it. It is simple the principle that Vogue stands for high fashion and features strong women who have a great fashion sense and inspire others with it. All the women on the cover embodies that. We’ve also seen Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé on the cover of Vogue. None of them are high fashion models on the runway but still major fashion icons. All I’m saying is Anna knows what she’s doing.
Even Naomi Campbell who’s been asked about the Kimye cover feels like being on the cover of Vogue is a build in the career of a high fashion model, but also says: “I’m being politically correct. That’s Anna Wintour’s choice to put them on the cover of her magazine, who’s to question it?” My favorite celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe was also asked about the cover and said: “I think it’s cool, I do. I think it’s awesome. I like both of them.” Both according to E! news.
Kim has a great fashion sense and style that got even better since she started dating Kanye, who is now her fiancé. These two are one of the most fashionable couples at this moment and therefore it was a good choice of Anna to put them on the Vogue cover. People still confuse Kim with who she was then and whos she is now. The Kim Kardashian today is Vogue worthy and Anna Wintour agrees. And what other cover than the Shape Issue would be the perfect cover for Kim Kardashian.
I had to take one for the Kim Kardashian team.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to get my copy of the April 2014 Vogue now.
