Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Vogue cover was a bit of a bust on the stands, selling less than 300,000 copies when it went on sale in March. But now, nearly nine months later, the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, is revealing for the first time what she really thought about having the notorious reality star and her rapper husband on the cover of the fashion Bible: And let’s just say she was not thrilled!
“I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine,” she said. So what does that make Kimye?!
She continued, “The first celebrity that I put on the cover was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too.”
But begrudgingly, Wintour said she must make such decisions in the name of sales. “Now and again one has to do things like that,” she said, explaining that otherwise, “nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people talk about us.”
