Here is how I believe it went down … ahem:
Kanye: Yo Anna, let Kim rock Vogue.
Anna Wintour: :::Laughing hysterically::::
Kanye: Anna, about Kim being on the co …
Anna Wintour: Before you even start, I’m going to stop you right there. No.
Anna Wintour’s receptionist: Anna, Kanye is on line 1
Anna Wintour: Tell him no then hang up
—-Month later at an after party—-
Kanye: Anna, Kim needs to rock that cover.
Anna Wintour: No.
Anna Wintour: NO.
Kanye: Anna, please.
Anna Wintour: No
Kanye: YES! This is happening.
Anna Wintour: NO!
Kanye: Listen …
Anna Wintour: JESUS CHRIST. FINE. FINE. PUT HER ON THE DAMN COVER. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. JUST LEAVE ME ALONE. FUCK.
Anna Wintour totally got bamboozled. I mean if Ye kept harassing me enough with ridiculous requests as I was trying to run a fashion empire … I would most definitely give him exactly what he wanted to shut him up. I mean, it’s only one cover, right?
Well I’ve been going back and forth about how I feel about this. Apart of me loathes Kim Kardashian and everything she stands for. But another part of me has this weird obsession with her. Hell I chopped my hair off this week basically due to her influence. And I adore the fact that she rarely wears color. See? Weird obsession.
But after a lot of thought (pathetic, right?), I think when Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s started, or post sex tape, Kim K was a hot dirty mess. She pretty much was a hot dirty mess up until she started dating Kanye. See examples below. Hell. We all make mistakes.
And now let’s look at Kim Kardashian under Kanye’s spell, shall we:
It’s all magic. Pure magic. It makes me not only want to up my style game, but start breaking the bank buying designer fashions. It’s flawless … and basically all because of Kanye. The man has taste. As cray as people think he is, he actually is kind of a creative genius. All good artists are cray. That is a fact.
So therefore I believe Kim K is the fashion industry’s pheonix. Kanye made her rise from the ashes of bandage dresses and oversized belts so she can rub shoulder’s with the fashion industry kings and queens … so much that she is on the cover of freaking Vogue … after Anna Wintour said she would NEVER put a reality star on the cover. And once upon a time I would have 100% agreed with her, but the girl has kind of proven herself to be not just trendy, but classically stylish … and I think that is what Vogue is all about. I mean the girl isn’t going around rocking crop tops and trucker hats and indulging in all things trendy. She is wearing looks fresh off the runways of fashion weeks from around. the. world.
And let’s be real, every person that has graced the cover of Vogue most likely has or had a full-time stylist. Kim K’s stylist just happens to be her future husband. I can only pray for a man to come into my life and throw out everything in my closet and replace it all with couture. I mean that is every girl’s dream. Right? No? Just me?
Throw stuff at the screen if you must, but I think it’s kind of okay that she is on the cover … because she is gracing the cover with the guy who made her rise from the fashion industries ashes.
