KIM, KANYE & NORTH: MORE Pics From ‘VOGUE’ Spread Released
After shocking us all with the KimYe cover of VOGUE, new pics of the West family (including North) have been released. Check the cute family photos inside…
After the many dinner parties and rumors of Kanye begging Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour to put Kim on the cover of VOGUE, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally landed top billing in the April 2014 issue of VOGUE magazine's Shape issue.
Their adorable 10-month-old baby North is also a part of the VOGUE fabness which was captured by Annie Leibovitz. Kim talked to VOGUE about dressing up North like her father saying “I put Kanye’s big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, ‘What up, Daddy?’
After receiving negative backlash over KimYe’s cover, Anna Wintour defended her choice in the Editor’s Letter, saying it was entirely her idea.
Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it.
I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)
'As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover.
He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.
'There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.'
