Anna Wintour: Kimye get people talking

Anna Wintour has defended her decision to put Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover of Vogue.

To many people's surprise, the editor-in-chief of US Vogue put the showbiz couple on the front of the glossy magazine's April issue.

Now she appears to have defended her decision, while seemingly admitting the reality TV star and the rapper were an unusual choice.

“I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine,” she said, according to Fashionista.

“Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us."

It's not just Kim, 34, and her 37-year-old husband who are big style stars in the Kardashian family. Her younger half-sister Kendall Jenner is on her way to becoming one of the world's biggest models at just 19 years old. Recently she was announced as the new face of Estée Lauder; a decision Anna is in complete agreement with.

"Going back to Estée Lauder’s decision to make Kendall Jenner the face of Estée Lauder: what a fantastic decision that was," she gushed.

"They have a wonderful brand that’s very traditionally American, and they decided they want to shake it up and reach a different audience.

"Now and again one has to do things like that. I think it’s part of the excitement and part of being a journalist. I hope another Kim Kardashian comes along this year!”

Kim's Vogue cover isn't the only thing people are talking about. The curvaceous star recently appeared on the front of Paper magazine, showing off her oiled-up, bare derriere.
