After much controversy regarding whether or not the queen of reality TV, Kim Kardashian, would grace the cover of Vogue magazine, the April edition was released with Kardashian and her fiancé, Kanye, front and center. (Eonline)
There has been some backlash after the release of the cover as well as many parody pictures. Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted, “Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???” in response to the cover. (Eonline) Seth Rogen and James Franco also released a photoshopped version of the cover with their faces placed on Kim and Kanye’s bodies.

Vogue Magazine has been used to showcase some of the world’s most powerful cultural icons, which is why there has been so much controversy surrounding Kim Kardashian’s appearance on the cover. There are those who argue that a reality star should not be considered a cultural style icon. This is the way the world is moving and we’re happy that Kim finally got what she wanted.
Congrats to all!
