So, I've been thinking about whether to add my two cents worth to this "OMG! How can Anna do that?" debate and I have so far resisted, only posting a few tweets to the effect that I don't get what the big deal is. Well, let me expound because I think some of us are such fash-mag snobs we think the industry "bible" is tainting itself by- gasp!- putting a reality TV show star on the cover of Vogue. Oh, yeah. Some have even evoked Kim Kadash's crime number one; starring in a porn video! Lawdy!
When I tweeted about it, designer Thula Sindi responded saying he was also baffled by the snobbish response to the Kimye cover because, in his words, "People are being snobby about the least snobby institution- a fashion mag!".
He added; "Vogue puts 15 year-old Russian girls on the cover because they are… ummm… pretty! I don't get this 'worth' that Kim is supposed to have."
Need I say more? I don't think so. To the bloggers who have added their disdain to the Kimye cover debate, it would serve you well to think back a few years and recall that your presence In the fashion scene hasn't always been accepted with arms wide open. You were also a victim of a dumb snobbery that seeks to deny a simple reality: the nature of celebrity and the industry is not what it used to be. So, just get the fuck over it! Kimye is in Vogue! And I bet you watch #KUWTK, SO FALL BACK!
