As many of you have heard, Editor-In-Chief of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour has decided to grace to April cover with the '#WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple' - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Many fashionistas have been very vocal about their anger with Vogue magazine, promoting a trend on Twitter, '#BoycottVogue', and to be frank, it's quite embarrassing. "Every time a with 's cover is sold, God kills a puppy and two kittens. " or "A low class cover No longer the fashion bible time to look else where for real fashion "

Okay then...You know, it's a very debatable topic in fashion. But for those of you who know fashion and the history of Vogue, you'd remember a previous controversy in the late 1980s and early 1990s when Anna Wintour first came to Vogue magazine. For her debut cover, Anna Wintour was the first fashion editor to pioneer a now common hybrid-style, the High-Low mix. She featured Israeli model Michaela Bercu in a couture Christian LaCroix jacket, with a pair of basic blue jeans. In Grace Coddington's memoir, she revealed that "The cover endorsed a democratic new high/low attitude to dressing, added some youthful but sophisticated raciness, and garnished it with a dash of confident energy and drive that implied getting somewhere fast...At the time, Richard Avedon had a hefty contract with Vogue and he was really pissed off.

So it's no wonder that the April issue of Vogue has had some wild backlash and really negative comments. But you know what Anna did? She has inspired many of us to adapt to this style. Even without us knowing sometimes! For example the modern romantic stylist, Jillian Davidson who constantly wears a mix between high-end fashion with something high-street. Or the best examples, found on models during fashion week, running around in trainers, with a Chanel evening bag around their shoulders.

Vogue's publisher, Tom Florio revealed in the 2009 fashion documentary, 'The September Issue', that "Nobody was wearing fur until Anna put it back on the cover of Vogue, back in the early 90s and she ignited the entire industry. If we get behind something, it sells." Well, there you go. After 26 years at Vogue, it's pretty damn clear, she knows what she's doing. It's comical how some 'fashionistas' bash and humiliate her now, but will no doubt and unquestionably run to her later. Whilst on this topic of forced love, it's interesting to see how some of you "luv karl lagerfelt"

This is quintessential Anna. She discovered a way to seamlessly marry celebrity culture and fashion together, where celebrities saw fashion as the new normal and they had to be apart of it. I'm pretty certain, in a couple of years you'll grow to love this one, even those Faux Fashionistas. This is just one, of many, many revolutionary movements Anna has pioneered, in the entire fashion industry.

Agree with me? Disagree with me? Let me know below



  1. I think people find Kim and Kanye trashy that's why they don't like the cover not because they are celebrities.
