Kanye West has adamantly been against debuting North West in public, but would he change his mind for Vogue? It wouldn’t surprise me, considering how pally Kanye is with Vogue editor Anna Wintour. After all, he actually managed to convince Anna to let Kim Kardashian into the MET ball, something no one thought he would be able to accomplish.
A source tells Radar Online, “Kanye West is trying to convince Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour that putting his baby mama and daughter on the cover is a good idea. Kanye is determined to make sure baby North isn’t photographed by paparazzi then splashed across the world. He knows what he wants — a professional photographer and the cover of Vogue – nothing else.”
Apparently, Kanye is facing an ‘uphill battle’ with this because Anna hates reality stars and doesn’t want to feature them on the magazine. Bad enough that she had to let Kim on her red carpet, but over her dead body will she let Kim on the cover of Vogue.
Okay, that last part wasn’t in the article, but I bet you it’s true. Anna would probably rather destroy Vogue than let Kim Kardashian get on the cover of it. And I don’t see her giving a cover to just North West – this isn’t People Magazine.
However, while Vogue is out of the question, I don’t doubt that Kanye and Kim are both looking to debut North West’s first photos through a prestigious news outlet. There were some reports last week that they were both looking at People, US Weekly, and other prestigious news outlets to showcase the pictures.
I have to say, I’m shocked the pictures still haven’t show up online, and it’s almost amazing the restraint that Kim has demonstrated throughout this. Obviously, she didn’t really have much of a choice in the matter, but it seems like Kanye’s actually making her less of a famewhore.
