Fans of US Vogue have spoken and now Naomi Campbell is the latest celebrity to give her opinion on Anna Wintour’s awful decision to have Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover of her magazine.
Naomi’s comment really opened our eyes. Vogue isn’t just a magazine that tends to have any kind of person on there — it’s usually either fashion models or people who have some kind of credibility in whatever field they work in.
Landing a Vogue cover opens many opportunities for those who get the opportunity but to also be in the position of being asked to cover the mag, you need to have worked your way up (and not paying someone off).
Naomi makes that perfectly clear in her interview with the This Morning Show. “I do not want to comment,” the supermodel says after trying to find the right words to say for the question on what she made of Kim’s cover.
“I’m a fashion model and I’ve been working for 28 years. And when you get a Vogue cover, it’s a build in your career…a stepping stone to achieve that.”
“Kim and Kanye haven’t earned the right to be on the cover of Vogue?” the host then asked, to which Naomi responded to, saying: “Those are your words, not mine. I’m being politically correct.”
Naomi, you didn’t have to say it in order for us to understand what you are saying.
It’s totally disrespectful of Anna Wintour to put a talentless reality star and a semi-talented rapper on the cover of a magazine just because Kanye happens to be a good pal of hers.
At the end of the day, Kim Kardashian has been awarded with April’s issue and nothing can be done about it. You can’t be mad at her, seeing that she was the one who asked and Anna accepted — Anna is more at fault than anybody, don’t you think?
Many speculate that Kanye paid a fortune to make Kim’s wishes come true. The 33-year old has been “dying” to be on the cover for years, and well, she tends to get what she wants.
Sarah Michelle Gellar has already announced she’s canceling her subscription while many others have boycotted the mag entirely too — it’s rather disappointing but Anna approved it, so now she has to deal with the consequences.
If Kim can grace the cover, then so can Honey Boo Boo! Let’s start a petition.
