Although the rapper is chummy with the magazine’s editor-in-chief, he wasn’t pleased when Kim was cut out of the ‘Vogue’ best dressed gallery of the Met Gala — and he thinks his wife-to-be deserves a cover of the high-fashion mag! Do you agree? VOTE!
Rapper Kanye West should be on top of the world right now. He has a newborn baby girl, North West, a top-selling album, Yeezus, and he is now engaged to beautiful reality star Kim Kardashian — but according to Kanye, there is one problem: Kim is not treated accordingly in the fashion industry. Kanye is not one to keep his opinions to himself, and he didn’t hold back when interviewed by Ryan Seacrest about Kim’s mistreatment in the industry when he appeared “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” on Oct. 29.
Kanye West — Kim Kardashian Deserves A ‘VOGUE’ Cover:
Whether you love her or hate Kim, you have to admit that the girl can dress! She is always dressed to kill and is definitely known for her signature sense of style. She has appeared on the cover of practically every other high-fashion mag, so why not Vogue? “Or like with the Hollywood Walk of Fame … it’s not the walk of singing … it’s the Walk of Fame … and classism has been going on before racism. We’re classist. We have our cool table … and there’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday … and collectively we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what President Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a bikini pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day… so it’s to say when we are there and editor-in-chief of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld, supports my girl, that’s a breakthrough … there’s a wall of classism that we are breaking through.”
Kanye West On ‘VOGUE’ Cutting Kim Kardashian Out Of Their Best Dressed Gallery:
Kim was very noticeably left out of Vogue‘s MET Gala best dressed gallery — in fact, only a portion of her hand was visible in the shot of Kanye. Many celebs come out to the Gala but what was it about Kim’s presence that didn’t make the cut? To make matters worse, Vogue chose a photo in which you can clearly see the reality star holding hands with Kanye.
Kanye, who is clearly frustrated about the situation, told Ryan: “People say, ‘Life isn’t fair. What are you complaining about?’ [But] it’s not fair that I don’t have infrastructure for what I want to to do in clothing because I’m crazy influential. Meaning, like, there’s no way for it to not work. When we do t-shirts, we do $200,000 in five hours, it works, but it’s a wall … It’s the Michael Jackson glass ceiling when he couldn’t get his videos played because he was considered to be urban. Now for me, what I want to create isn’t about black and white, but the reason why I’m not able to create what I want to create is about being black and is about classism. And that’s that wall when I took Kim to the Met Ball and they put it up on Vogue.com and tried to say she wasn’t there because they didn’t want a reality show girl there.” Kim attended the Met Gala when she was very pregnant and her interesting, custom-made Givenchy gown wasn’t well received.
