If you haven't already seen US Vogue's April 2014 cover with the "#worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple" Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, I don't know where you've been for the past few days. Vogue released the cover Friday which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
Anna Wintour's decision to put Kimye on the cover of American Vogue has sparked major discussion within theFashionSpot forums. The very first comment by t-rex read, "Get out. This thread will be a great one and remembered for a long time." Our members do not disappoint and have made for some excellent reading.
As you would expect, the cover didn't go down well and within the first few minutes fee de foret wrote, "This is why after 5 years I've let my Vogue subscription run out. [Irrelevant] cover stars, stale editorials and worst of all, unimaginative fashion! It's become a pitiful, desperate edition."
Honeycombchild was not happy with Wintour's decision either: "I'm really disappointed with the decision to make this cover. I think this is the first issue of US Vogue that I won't be buying in about ten years. I find that sad and mostly I'm just confused that Vogue thinks she and Kanye are what their audience wants to read about."
Magdalena00 simply wrote, "RIP Vogue Magazine."
Amongst all the negativity came this comment from Bobby153: "I was actually really looking forward to a Kim K cover, I thought there was a lot of potential to do something very interesting with her. Vogue can take ‘un-Vogue’ like subjects and make them look beautiful, there was a lot of hoopla around the Kate Upton cover but I thought it was very striking and one of my favourite covers of recent times."
A fragment of Cottonmouth13's comment was also positive: "I honestly think the cover somehow looks great. It's poetic, romantic and a little nice too."
I'm almost certain this issue will fly off the shelves, considering the mass of attention this issue is getting right now. People are always willing to own a bit of history too — and this is it. "All publicity is good publicity," as Kite stated.
