Vogue’s Anna Wintour & Kim Kardashian wins hands down

Updated on March 20, 2015

Vogue April Cover

Knowing full well the potential for public outcry, Anna Wintour is riding the wave of controversy and reveling in the publicity that followed Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s April cover of American Vogue. Star of The Devil Wears Prada, a movie about a fashion editor, believed to be based on her. Her demanding personality earned her the nickname Nuclear Wintour. There is no doubt that She pushes boundaries when needed and buttons when necessary.

“Vogue is a fashion magazine, and a fashion magazine is about change,”⁠ she said, not long after taking one of publishing’s most storied posts in 1988. A visionary, Wintour has continued to redefine just what is fashion.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Showcasing her signature fearlessness that is the driving force behind the decision for movie stars and singers to grace Vogue’s covers, when other publications traditionally relied on models. Anna Wintour, former English editor-in-chief of American Vogue and current artistic director for Condé Nast, Vogue's publisher, is a legend in the cutthroat fashion industry.

Critics who slam Wintour for promoting elitist views of femininity andbeauty, now call Kim a D list celebrity with a tabloid filled life bearing its ugliness in E!’s reality TV show - Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

As soon as the cover hit newsstands, it struck a nerve and has been trending on social media like wildfire. From CBS News to The Washington Post to MTV to The Guardian to The Huffington Post and many more, it seems everyone wants to have their say.

Generally considered unworthy by readers to be on the coveted cover of the fashion bible, reserved for the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Rodham Clinton, rumours of bribes and pressure from Kanye West to elevate Kim’s fashion status flood the web.

Some vow to veto the magazine, others swear that Anna has finally outlived her iconic status and needs to go. Call Anna Wintour and Kim Kardashian what you will, you cannot deny Anna has the business of fashion down pat and Kim’s efforts at creating buzz in the age of social media has made her a household name. In this era of clutter where guts mean glory, Kim is as savvy a businesswoman as Anna is. They both win hands down.
