While I am probably the last person to be on team Kim, I can honestly say, I admire her fashion choices. A Vogue cover was inevitable, not only because of Kanye and the current Kardashian craze, but also because she has left a considerable mark on the fashion scene. Grace Coddington, Vogues creative director, also stands by the cover. There was a wedding story to be done, and Anna probably had them in mind, because she had been seeing a lot of Kanye, so she said, Maybe we should shoot it on lookalikes. And I thought, Why not just do it on the real thing? This is Vogue. And I do think Kim Kardashian represents this moment in our culture. Im fascinated by her, in the same way Im fascinated by the people I see on the street or the subway, Grace said. Anna herself has even spoken out about Kimye and the backlash that followed their cover. 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 fiancee on Vogues cover.
