The jig’s up, people. Anna Wintour herself has come forward and put all rumors to bed of a bribery scandal. The Editor-in-Chief of Vogue took to her monthly Editor’s letter to shut down all rumors that she must have been anticipating with the cover’s release.
While we all have our opinion on the cover, Ms. Wintour makes some valid points that naturally we have to say we can’t find fault with. Oh that clever minx. She even manages to slide in a joke about the letter “K.” Anyone else all the sudden having visions of Anna sitting nightly on her sofa and watching reruns of Keeping Up With The Kardashians?
In here letter to readers she writes:
“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,” Wintour, 64, wrote. “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,” she explained. “The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
