Anna Wintour's decision to put Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the front cover of Vogue has proved controversial. Even celebrities like Sara Michelle Gellar have protested on Twitter.
So how did the reality star and her rapper fiance land the world's most covetable front cover? Anna Wintour explains.
"Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)
"As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancee on Vogue's cover.
"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."
So what do you make of that? Reckon Kim and Kanye deserve the Vogue cover? Tweet us @handbagcom
