The Duchess has yet to be photographed for a cover of a magazine, (she even declined British ‘Vogue’ prior to her wedding), but sources say Anna will do anything to get Kate!
Kate Middleton on the cover of American Vogue, could it be true? If Anna Wintour, Editor-in-chief of the high fashion magazine, gets her way then you better believe it! Sources say Anna is pulling out all the stops in an attempt to land Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge as her next cover girl. In fact, she has even reached out to famed photog Mario Testino, in hopes that he can convey the message to Kate.
“Anna has been speaking to Mario about winning over Kate. She is really pressing him to shoot Kate for the cover,” sources tell Page Six. Mario shot William and Kate’s official engagement photos and is known for his iconic photographs of Princess Diana. He remains a close family friend and has strong ties to the British royals — but will he be able to convince Kate?
The Duchess has yet to be shot for a magazine. In fact, she even declined the chance to be a British Vogue cover girl prior to her nuptials — editor Alexandra Shulman hoped Kate would be photographed by Mario for a wedding edition.
“Every magazine has been trying to get Kate, and many assume it will eventually be Vogue,” another source said. “But even with the Mario Testino relationship, it is not clear when this will happen. The Palace must approve it, and they are very protective of Kate.”
Considering the Duchess and her ability to blend street fashion with high-end frocks has become quite the sensation, it’s only a matter of time before she accepts a cover — but will it be Vogue? “There’s nothing trashy or vulgar about her,” Anna said in the past. “She dresses her age and never looks out of place.”
