I’m sure Anna Wintour is having a nasty hissy fit that her brand would deign to be associated with the likes of Kimmy Kardashian, but nevertheless, here it is, the L’Uomo Vogue cover featuring the perhaps maybe Ms. Future Kanye West. Because Vogue is cheeky like that, they’ve done the cover paparazzi style. [Vogue]

“Like many at that time, we were hopeful that the Assad regime would be open to a more progressive society. Subsequent to our interview, as the terrible events of the past year and a half unfolded in Syria, it became clear that its priorities and values were completely at odds with those of Vogue. The escalating atrocities in Syria are unconscionable and we deplore the actions of the Assad regime in the strongest possible terms.”

Vogue editor Anna Wintour on the profile the magazine did on Syrian first lady Asma Al-Assad. Assad’s husband Bashar al-Assad is responsible for Syria’s spate of violence against its own citizens. The March 2011 profile happened to coincide with the rise in violence in the country, and was unceremoniously removed from Vogue’s website in April 2012. Author Joan Juliet Buck explained that she chose to profile Assad because, “I think that Vogue is always on the lookout for good-looking first ladies because they’re a combination of power and beauty and elegance. That’s what Vogue is about. And here was this woman who had never given an interview, who was extremely thin and very well-dressed and therefore, qualified to be in Vogue. And they had – Vogue had been trying to get her for quite a long time.” [Fashionista]

It’s perhaps no surprise that the fashion world would come out in support of a more liberal presidential candidate. But what is shocking is that the normally quite demure Vogue editor Anna Wintour would deign to make a campaign video on behalf of one. But yet here is Ms. Wintour, openly praising and supporting Barack Obama and encouraging supporters to enter to win a seat at an upcoming fundraising event! Still, it’s nice to see that even in the throes of political campaigning, Wintour remains her intimidating self. [YouTube]

The latest installment in the Kim Kardashian vs. Anna Wintour saga leaves a puzzling taste in the mouths of fashionistas everywhere. A week has passed since rumors first began to fly that Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue (and consequential arbiter of all things en vogue), is not only not a card-carrying member of the Kardashian fan klub, but that she refuses to deign her glossy to feature Kim in any way. (See also: spotlight-hungry publicity queen Kim’s eyebrow-raising absence from the Met Ball.) 

Then, unsettlingly, the reality star announced this morning (via Twitter, naturally) that she’ll be the subject of a photoshoot in the July/August issue of Vogue Italia. But the magazine’s editor, Franca Sozzani, tweeted a correction to say that Kim will actually be in Uomo Vogue, the men’s offshoot. Kim also posted the above picture from the spread — she looks uncannily like her mother, doesn’t she? Spooky! [Fashionista]

What’s Beef? Apparently, Anna Wintour And Kim Kardashian Have It

Today in Things That Are Not At All Surprising: the queen of American fashion and the queen of American television are not gal pals. Rumor has it that the reason Kanye West turned up solo to the Met Ball on Monday night (and looked très bitter the entire evening) was that ladyfriend Kim Kardashian was left off the guest list that Vogue’s Anna Wintour, the co-chair of the event, had a hand in penning. Take these reports with a grain of salt — like most unfounded celeb gossip, they come from an “unnamed source” — but this beef sounds pretty damn reasonable to me. Kim has landed the cover, if not multiple, of nearly every major women’s glossy, but all things Kardashian have been suspiciously absent from Anna’s publication. It’s not a stretch to say that the Wintour/Vogue/Met Ball brand (definition: class) is on a diametrically opposite side of the spectrum from Kim’s brand (definition: ass). Case in point: though she wasn’t in attendance, she did live-Tweet the entire event. That’s not very Chanel, now is it? [Fashionista]
