Kimye: 1, Anna Wintour: 0
Kanye has met with Wintour several times to persuade her to put Kim on the cover for a few months now. He even went as far as saying Kim’s “just as talented” as Vogue‘s February cover star Lena Dunham, “if not more so.”
He declared Kim has a bigger fan base and more appeal than Dunham…Which, in his defense, is a
sad truth about our society.
And it looks like his argument worked.
Vogue released the April issue today with both Kanye and Kim (wearing a wedding dress and showing off her gigantic ring) gracing the cover.
I’m sure Anna Wintour is hiding in her office today, afraid of the backlash that’s sure to come from this one… But I have to say, this could be one of her smartest moves yet. There’s no doubt the issue will be a huge sell.
Not to mention, Kim returned the favor, allowing North West to take part in the shoot. Watch the video below for a sneak peek:
