The Kim Kardashian-Kanye West Vogue cover continues to be a topic of discussion worldwide. People really cannot wrap their head around the fact that a reality star would ever be featured on so esteemed a fashion magazine. (Nevermind the fact that Kim and Kanye both have fashion lines…)
The latest to sound off? Naomi Campbell.
But she’s a little more diplomatic and reserved in her response than Sarah Michelle Gellar was on Twitter when she threatened to cancel her subscription to the magazine.
When asked about the KimYe cover, Naomi Campbell declined to respond, eventually saying "I’m a fashion model and I’ve been working for 28 years."
"When you get a Vogue cover, it’s a build in your career…. a stepping stone to achieve that."
That wasn’t a good enough answer for the hosts of Australia’s The Morning Show.
They went on to ask "Kim and Kanye haven’t earned the right to be on the cover of Vogue?"
"Those are your words, not mine. I’m being politically correct," Campbell replied.
Campbell has graced the cover of Vogue 5 times in her storied, 28-year modeling career. She knows a thing or two about the fashion world and that magazine in particular. (And whacking assistants in the head with cell phones, but that’s another story for another day…)
The media firestorm surrounding the Vogue cover has been both hilarious and disheartening. Seth Rogen and James Franco’s spoof cover wins in the hilarity column.
Anna Wintour, the magazine’s editor, wrote a public letter stating that Kanye West did not pay or beg Wintour to put his fiance’ on the cover of the magazine.
Probably because he was too busy buying Kim Kardashian Burger King restaurants.
