Everyone lost their shit when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West appeared on the cover of Vogue earlier this year. The internet wouldn’t stop talking about it, thousands of subscribers threatened to (or actually did) cancel their subscriptions to the fashion magazine and basically we gave Kimye and Vogue EIC Anna Wintour exactly what they wanted: more attention. But what did Anna Wintour REALLY think? How could a woman whose life is dedicated to haute couture allow such a travesty to happen? Well, there’s no accounting for taste, is there?
Here’s what Wintour told CNN journalist Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night (via Fashionista):
“I see the role of Vogue to reflect what’s going on in the culture. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It’s such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she’s part of the establishment. I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”
LOL, well, that solves that, then. So, it’s basically okay to celebrate tasteless people because the public wants what it wants, so even if she doesn’t belong, we have to make her belong to sell copies. Nice! Love the standards Vogue has set there.

Anna Wintour. Giiiiirl…
Miley Cyrus is a hot ass mess – and yes, I mean that in the worst way possible. She’s taken shit to a whole new level following her VMA performance and people aren’t really all that happy about it – least of all Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who canceled Miley’s magazine cover to keep that shit out of her esteemed publication. Basically, Anna used to think Miley might be a new fashion icon but she changed her mind with the quickness once she saw the VMAs.
From The Mail on Sunday:
The 20-year-old, right, was photographed for the December issue as editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had been eager to champion her as a new fashion icon.
But she soon changed her mind after witnessing the singer perform her overtly sexual routine in latex bra and knickers.
‘Anna found the whole thing distasteful,’ a source says. ‘She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction.’
Well, I agree with Anna there – it was extremely distasteful and I wouldn’t want her on the cover of a high fashion magazine, either. Then again, Miley will probably stick her tongue out to that, call Anna a cunt and then laugh about it on Instagram. As you do.
Kim Kardashian wore a delightful Mrs. Doubtfire ensamble to the Met Gala last week. It was so fabulous that Vogue cropped her out of a photo with Kanye, so that he could make the “best dressed” list without being tainted. Kim K’s deletion is making more sense considering that Anna Wintour really didn’t want to invite her. She didn’t last year, but this year relented as Kim is dating Kanye West who gives her more cred in the non-reality entertainment world.
But she drew the line at mom Kris Kardashian. From Radaronline:
“One Kardashian is enough!”
That was the blunt edict Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour delivered after learning Kim Kardashian‘s momager, Kris Jenner, enquired about attending last week’s A-List Met Costume Institute Gala, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“Anna approves every star who enters and although she finally relented on Kim, she drew the line at Kris, who was desperate to attend,” a source said.
“Anna wants a parade of stars at the gala, not a parade of reality stars!”
So I guess we can assume that we will not see Kris at this event, ever, or any other reality star unless they marry up. Hugely up.
AND I think we can assume that Gwyneth Paltrwoeisme will not be invited next year.
“I’d just been on a trip to Minnesota, where I can only kindly describe most of the people I saw as little houses.”

I don’t know when or where this picture was taken, or how in God’s name these two came to be in the same room, let alone sitting directly next to each other, but we all need to start talking about it, pronto.
You can always count on Anna Wintour to emerge from her crypt and show her face during Fashion Week. The occasion even warranted a rare smile. Okay, it’s a half smile, but she tried.
Here’s the Devil herself at the cocktail party for the Ralph Lauren show, with Ralph and Ricky Lauren.
Not sure why I’m so obsessed with her. But I am.
