Anna Wintour truly is the devil that wears all of the Prada – which is why we love her so much!
The editor of Vogue was all over news headlines earlier this year when she made the controversial decision to put Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye on the cover of the fashion magazine.
At the time, many people – including celebrities– were outraged at the cover and many even cancelled their subscription.
Now, Anna has spoken out about her decision, but rather than praise Kim and Kanye, she actually gives what can only be described as the biggest backhanded compliment that has ever been given.
Anna was featuring in a conversation series with journalist Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of New York when she spoke about giving Madonna a cover back in 1989: “The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at that time, too.”
She then went on to say that it was not always a good idea to put “tasteful” people on the cover: “I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”
Wow – in one sentence, she managed to say that Kim, Kanye and even Madonna are not tasteful enough to be on Vogue, but that’s why they are there.
We’re sure Kanye is just going to LOVE this!
Oh, Anna – never change!
