Here's How the Fashion Industry Is Reacting to Vogue's Latest Cover

Mar 21 2014 - 12:36pm

You can bet that the fashion industry had more than a few thoughts to share upon the release of Kim and Kanye's highly suspected Vogue cover earlier this afternoon. And while Anna Wintour wasted no time in defending her choice: "You may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover," she reportedly states in her editor's letter [1]. "He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true." The reaction we saw on Twitter — whether it was fans of the image expressing support and excitement or individuals voicing concern for the future of the magazine — remained to be action packed, so much so that we had a feeling Twitter would break again [2].

First, here's what the cover stars had to say about Vogue's April issue:

This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine [3] for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even… http://t.co/CbD5ThUqor [4]

And next, here's what editors and designers alike are saying:

Outrage over a magazine cover, seriously ? It's only fashion. #voguemagazine [10]

I don't think Anna "caved" and don't find it offensive. It's the bravest thing American Vogue has done in years.

Seems like a lot of people are bent out of shape because @KimKardashian [13] is on the cover of @voguemagazine [14]. Is it really that big a deal?

3. To say that Vogue is somehow too good to put these two on their cover is perpetuating a kind of cultural snobbishness that is soo passé.

Ryan Lochte had a cover too. Remember that.

Everyone knows what happens when Vogue photographs you in wedding dresses before the actual wedding. We've all endured the SATC movie.

I'm gonna pretend I didn't see the cover of April 2014 issue of US Vogue.
