Buffy the Kimye slayer! Sarah Michelle Gellar decided to voice her unwanted opinion at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s first-ever Vogue cover on Friday, March 21, shortly after the Anna Wintour-approved April issue was revealed.
“Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription,” Gellar tweeted. “Who is with me???”
While many fans agreed with Gellar, the Crazy One star’s comment also elicited a defensive quip from Kardashian’s bestie, Jonathan Cheban. “Do u matter?” he said, retweeting Gellar. Cheban, along with Kardashian’s closest family and friends, celebrated the couple’s fashion bible coup Friday afternoon.
Vogue editor Wintour also defended her controversial choice to place the reality TV star and rapper on the issue’s cover in her Editor’s Letter.
“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 fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort,” Wintour, also the creative director of Conde Nast, wrote.
“Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
My two cents on the matter is if a non-fashionable TV star Lena Dunham is on the cover of Vogue how come a beautiful fashionista and a her fashionable rapper can’t be? Why so much hate for someone who’s obviously a huge part of today’s pop culture? Kim, Kanye and North are seemingly the perfect portrait of what we all wish we could have, no?
