Look at it this way: Now people can finally stop accusing Kanye West of lobbying Anna Wintour to get his fiancé, Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue. Apparently he has succeeded. See above, the April 2014 issue cover which hits newsstands on March 24th.
There will, inevitably, be a great deal of hand wringing over whether or not Kim Kardashian is worthy of such an honor in the fashion world. Should she be included among such celebrated figures as Oprah, Hilary Clinton, Michele Obama and Meryl Streep? We tend to take a longer view, and remind ourselves that past cover qualification has included being married to or divorced from Donald Trump, which worked for Ivana (May 1990) and Melania (February 2005) —so you know, perspective. For her part, Kim does look very pretty, and of course, Kanye is there too, as well as the big diamond ring. Fittingly, this is actually the annual "Shape" issue. If Kim is known for anything, it's her shape, which is decidedly un-fashion model-like, and therefore refresing to see on the cover of Vogue. There's, a couple of other things she's famous for too, but let's not ruin her moment. The cover also includes a 27-character hashtag, #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple, which is perhaps not the most practical hashtag they could have dreamed up for what should have seemed to be obvious reasons. Presumably, The Internet will have a lot to say about this startling event, so let this be your warning to hunt down those websites that foster such heated discussions, or, better yet avoid them altogether.
