Last time we featured her making a night time talk show appearance, she wore pretty much the exact same type of outfit. Something about being invited on night time talk shows makes her want to flash her underwear. We wonder why that is. Oh, right. She’s Kim Kardashian.

This looks awful on her and the shoes are tacky-ass. We almost convinced ourselves it looks better with the jacket until we realized we were still looking at her panties. As for Vogue and an apparent audience with its queen, we can’t even. People keep asking us our opinion on and we keep directing them to Lorenzo’s meltdown on twitter when he first found out.

 

 

SPOILER: He didn’t step away from twitter.

Kim on the cover of Vogue is the culmination of the last decade+ of melding the world of fashion with the world of celebrity. Eventually, the classy Cate Blanchett covers no longer excite the market and it turns to increasingly apparent stunts. We can all bitch about till the cows come home but we bet that issue of Vogue sees a spike in sales. Expect more Kardashianry in the fashion world. It’s inevitable now.

Then again, Anna never did manage to make Sienna Miller happen. Although we suspect the outcome would’ve been different if Sienna had been married to Kanye.

    • EverybodysStarling

      Spandex are your friend. As are clothes that cover them.

    • Scimommy

      Damn, *I* must’ve stepped away from Twitter because I totally missed Lorenzo’s meltdown! Glad to see he made it through that crisis ok.

      • MilaXX

        I’m sure scented candles and meditation were involved. Perhaps a mantra of “Balenciaga,Balenciaga Balenciaga…”

        • MK03

          And booze.

          • decormaven

            There ain’t any booze to get over that, ever.

            • demidaemon

              No kidding.

    • BayTampaBay

      Kim looks awful and FAT in this dress. Her thighs look huge.

      I will never understand the actions of Anna Wintour with regards to the April 2014 cover of Vogue. Her Editor’s letter was total BS and no one believed anything in that letter for one moment.

      • hunt3002

        What’s wrong with fat?

        • BayTampaBay

          hunt3022,

          I apologize as “fat” was not a good choice of words.

          Her body, which is quite good based on recent pictures, looks so grossly bloated, out of shape and out of proportion in this dress

          • hunt3002

            Gross is also a terrible word choice here. No body is gross. We’re here to look at clothes not to cluck about how we perceive their body.

            Additionally if we can tell how in shape a person is simply through a visual medium that whole medical field must be doing it wrong.

            • IMNAngryLiberal

              “No body is gross” You have clearly never seen the “People of Walmart” photos. Anyway, Kim is a really beautiful woman with a slamming body (I don’t like anything about her, but one must be fair); however this dress does nothing to enhance her shape and everything to detract from it.

            • hunt3002

              I have and I don’t believe we should body shame those who shop at Wal-Mart or anyone in general.

      • Courtenay P

        her body actually looks pretty good to me. that dress is just stupid.

        • barbarienne

          Exactly. I was thinking, “Okay, the dress is tacky as hell and she accessorizes it to make it tackier. But I kind of have to admire that she’s showing off a body that isn’t a size two.”

      • Joanna

        There are SO MANY better ways you could have communicated your sentiment.

        How about “That dress does not flatter her.” Which I would totally agree with.

      • 3boysful

        The macrame-covering-underwear look is not flattering on a curvy girl, even a petite one like KK. ESPECIALLY a petite one. That dress, lined, would be great on a tall gal. That said, underwear covered by something virtually see-through used to be considered LINGERIE, not TV appearance appropriate. Hrrrmph.
        ETA: Strippertastic footwear.

      • Ashleigh

        What a stupid thing to say! She may be a money grubbing, self promoting, glorified prostitute with absolutely no reason to be in the limelight, but she is a role model for all women in the world who aren’t a size 0. Can’t we at least give her that? Don’t be so nasty.

      • Nikko Viquiera

        NO BODY SNARKING ALLOWED!

    • zenobar

      Is it April 1st already?

      • unbornfawn

        It is the April issue….just saying….

    • RoseJB

      I can’t imagine anyone looking in the mirror with this outfit and thinking, “This is the one!”

      • marlie

        She goes out EVERY DAY in outfits that make me wonder how she could possibly say “I look GOOD in this!”

        • Sophie

          She probably just goes “I need less fabric in this!”

        • alyce1213

          The sad thing is, you can legitimately say that. We’re subjected to her and her outfits on a daily basis, in the press and internet. It’s unavoidable and so annoying.

    • @Biting Panda

      You can put the girl onto Vogue, but you can’t put Vogue into the girl.

      • JR Labrador

        Vogue is the about the only thing that hasn’t been put into her.

        • Rand Ortega

          DAYUM.

        • The Counselor

          The Panda sets ‘em up, you knock ‘em down. Good one-two punch, guys.

        • Danielle

          YOOOOOOOOOOO

        • demidaemon

          It’s true.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        You win. :)

      • Rand Ortega

        Doesn’t get more profound than that.

      • Bethany Fairbrother

        Lol! Good one!

    • Little_Olive

      What the HELL, on both counts. Really. The cover? A hashtag on Vogue?? Those shoes??? The way every item is resulting in a little roll of flesh?
      I’m done.

      • RoseJB

        It was the hashtag that killed me.

      • Little_Olive

        Oh and Uncles, I think Lo’s twitter rant is far form a meltdown -I mean I was expecting a real blowout. And that would have been totally fine.

        • marlie

          I thought it was pretty restrained as well. I have to admit; I was expecting worse. :P

    • In_Stitches

      She has her own line, right? It can’t be this bad…she should just self promote and wear Kardashian Kourture. This is…to borrow from Nina Garcia, it’s ‘aesthetically not pleasing’.

      • Kathy

        And “She has questionable taste.”

        • alyce1213

          That’s putting it mildly.

      • Sarah

        Her own line is exclusively for Sears, which I expect means Kanye doesn’t acknowledge its existence.

      • marlie

        It’s all either standard Kardashian-level tacky, OR standard Sears fare. Either way, not terribly fashion-forward.

        • demidaemon

          It’s pretty much not awful. However, I saw bits of their kids line last night and.. well…I wouldn’t want to subject any baby to that dreck.

      • mdcoon127

        Its a line at Sears…and it is this bad, actually this would improve it

    • Carrie

      I don’t how someone as pretty as Kim (and she is pretty) keeps managing to have such am awful taste in clothes. For a gal who was a ‘stylist’ pre-sex tape, you’d think she’d have some basic understanding of how to flatter the body she has.

      Instead she keeps aiming for edgy/sexy and missing so hard that it is laughable.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        I know, right? She is pretty — she could be gorgeous if she would stop wearing these silly outfits.

        • therealjanedoe

          And, stopped the facial injections so that her face is no longer immobile and long from fillers.

        • Sam Smith

          She used to be gorgeous, but I’d say she’s done too much with the plastic. Its a shame too, as she really used to be striking.

      • marlie

        I refuse to believe that anyone paid her to help them pick out clothes.

        • barbarienne

          Sometimes the best editors are people who can’t write worth a damn. Maybe it works in fashion, too?

      • alyce1213

        I guess anyone can call themselves a stylist. It doesn’t mean they have any knowledge about what flatters or that they have good taste. Does she actually have any credentials as a stylist — or was it just shopping trips with her wealthy friends? I don’t suppose she had much of a go at it as a stylist, hence sex tape.

      • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

        She is pretty. And yet I still don’t feel like I need to see her bra and panties.

    • hughman

      Girl is gonna have that pattern pressed into her skin forever.

      • Sarah

        Seriously. And lines on her feet & ankles from the “trussed ham” shoes.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        That’s what I was thinking. She’ll have a damask arse for days.

        • Ginmaru

          I think that needs to be my stripper name. And now heeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrreeeeeee’s Damask Arse!

      • makeityourself

        We can always hope.

    • Capt. Renault

      It’s the colour of plasticine, once you mash all the colours together.

    • thecitysleeps

      Everything about this is ugly as fuck. The colour, the tacky, ugly shoes, the big panties, that hair. Ugh.

      • travelgirl28

        This.

    • amanda d

      I almost feel sorry for her. It seems like Anna and Kanye are conspiring to make her look bad and she has no idea it’s happening.

      • marlie

        “REALLY, babe, you look GREAT in this. EVERYONE is going to want to dress like you.”

      • Kent Roby

        She’s famous for a sex tape. The entire K-word empire is built on her sex tape. She is extremely wealthy because of nothing other than that sex tape, because, other than sex, she has no skills or talent. She is not a person who should be pitied, or emulated. She is the embodiment of the very worst of our society.

        • demidaemon

          Well, at least she has a single talent.

        • amanda d

          Almost.

        • AnaRoW

          See I hear this all the time. She was already becoming famous before the sex tape. She and her sisters already owned Dash before the sex tape. They’ve been wealthy since they were children. The sex tape got her noticed but it’s the reality show that actually put her on the map and allowed her to become as rich as she is. If sex tapes were all it took to become famous, there’d be no room for actual celebrities to get noticed. This is what I mean, I don’t think she’s any worse than any other reality show celebrity. Except for the settings and personalities, I can’t see any difference between the Kardashians’ shows and the Duck Dynasty. The premise of the two shows are basically the same: close-knit family works and plays together while making major merchandising profits on the side.

          • BayTampaBay

            Great point! I must agree with the statement: “Except for the settings and personalities, I can’t see any difference between the Kardashians’ shows and the Duck Dynasty.”

    • awtchy1

      Does Kim have some sort of deal with the media/paps that they won’t shoot her directly from behind? I feel like there are way more front or half-side shots online than there are full on ass-shots. Not that I want to see one, it just always strikes me as odd.

      • shirab

        She takes plenty of shots of herself from behind, I believe. (I shouldn’t know that, but sometimes these things seep into my consciousness.)

      • Isabel

        Read Daily Mail to see some of those shots

    • Courtenay P

      “Kim Kardashian and Kanye West leave Waverly Inn in New York City after dining with Anna Wintour in a Rachel Roy dress paired with a Balmain leather jacket.”

      that’s really kind of gross. Imagining seeing someone sit and eat in a restaurant in that atrocity.

      • leahpapa

        They were probably there alone – nobody’s been to the Waverly Inn since 2006.

        • Courtenay P

          I’m trying to decide if that’s better or worse. In such a private setting it’s maybe even weirder. Like “hayyyy Annna look what I got for you”, instead of just showing the world.

    • Alyssa_T_Robot

      simply appalling.

    • SuzyQuzey

      So much awful, so often.

    • Myra Amler

      That doiley is not her friend. I assume that jacket isn’t for warmth.

      • marlie

        The jacket actually has a lot of potential. But you can’t see it because of all of the other crap going on.

        • Myra Amler

          I do like the jacket. There is no way it is keeping her warm (open front) and the fact that she is wearing a crocheted nightgown underneath. Someone please tell me what color that dress is…other than hideous.

        • alyce1213

          I like the jacket.

    • gayle

      Every time i see her get distacted by the vacant look in her eyes. I don’t get the sense that she is a full participant but rather a living barbie doll for Kanye to dress up and make “fashionable”. But hell mabye that is how she thinks she can gain some respect I don’t know I try to avoid her and her kin as much as possible.

      • Rhonda Shore

        I will say that i really prefer her with dark hair…with blondish hair she really looks like she’s trying to be Beyonce. That completely goes away when her hair is dark.

    • http://batman-news.com boweryboy

      I really wish she knew how to dress her body.

      • MilaXX

        Pre Kanye I think she actually did a great job of dressing her body.

        • Mismarker

          I honestly cannot remember what she dressed like pre-Kanye. The onslaught of boobs/butt/”look at my underwear!” has seriously worn me down.

        • http://batman-news.com boweryboy

          Was there really that much of a difference?

          • MilaXX

            It wasn’t great, but I think she certainly had more cute days than she does now.

        • marlie

          I’ll have to disagree with you on that one. I’ve always though that her clothing choices were atrocious. It’s just gotten WORSE in the last couple of years.

      • MaryMcClelland

        I honestly think she just cannot accept that her body has seriously changed post-baby. And she’s desperate to prove she’s “still got it!” as they say. I don’t know what the deal is but her entire fashion oveure over the last few months says nothing but “I’ve totally lost it!” I also think she’s so desperate to be taken seriously she’ll allow herself to be the butt of a joke (pun intended). This whole Kanye relationship is absolutely nothing but a PR stunt anyway – their chemistry is so non-existent it’s almost hilarious they think anyone believes this engagement is real.

    • NinjaCate

      “Then again, Anna never did manage to make Sienna Miller happen.”

      She’s never gonna happen.

      • gayle

        As of late I get the impression Sienna is okay with where she is, she seems to have settled down a lot. Kim and Kanye though are not going to settle for anything less than world domination.

        • decormaven

          Readying my spacecraft for worlds unknown in 5, 4, 3, 2…

            Need a 1st Officer?

            • decormaven

              Yes. Let’s gather all the beautiful things to take onward with us. I’ll clutch my Wordsworth. “Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers…”

            • demidaemon

              If its anything like the Enterprise, sign me up. (Any version will do, really.)

      • BayTampaBay

        What happened to Sienna Miller? Did I miss something.

    • Dagney

      uh….whut?

    • marlie

      WHY IN THE HOLY HELL DOES SHE ALWAYS NEED TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC SEMI NAKED? WHY?!?!?!

      (I need to step away and do some deep breathing exercises before my head explodes.)

      • Rand Ortega

        Because when you have no talent or personality, semi naked is all you have to garner attention.

        • AthenaJ

          Yup, and being completely naked (whilst doing um things…on tape) is the only reason she became famous.

        • MilaXX

          THIS. Kim clearly thinks all she has to offer is her body and *that* is sad. Even sadder is the fact that she makes so much money off her body that it validates her way of thinking.

    • Melanie

      “Expect more Kardashianry in the fashion world…”

      More like KardashASSery.
      Enough with these pseudo-celebrities already!

    • MannahattaMamma

      I just…I can’t….it’s all too awful. It’s as if a project from The Onion escaped from the lab & is running amok on all the magazine covers in the world. Do you suppose she thought this “dress” (using the term very loosely) is a manifestation of string theory? As in, in theory it could be cool to wear a dress made of string? I’m going to go gaze at blank white walls for a while.

    • Mismarker

      Proof that money can’t buy class.

      • Roz

        Kim just wants some KLASS and money’s buying that. Urghhhhhhhhhhhh……

        • Mismarker

          To me, it’s more like crass.

      • FrigidDiva

        Or taste. Well, maybe BAD taste.

    • Ashleigh

      While I will gladly call here a glorified prostitute, I would never call her fat. The one thing she does is stand out as a voluptuous woman and I think that’s a positive thing. One positive thing.

      • BlairBear

        I agree but she dresses herself in a way that she looks fat instead of voluptuous. I wish she would learn to dress her body and find clothes that fit.

        • Chaiaiai

          THIS^. She’s NOT fat but she does her figure no justice with her clothing choices. And that lace is atrocious.

          L, you are far too restrained on Twitter:)

      • alyce1213

        Her voluptuousness is fine, it’s everything else that sucks.
        As to how she dresses her curvy body, it’s almost always too tight, too revealing, with boobs spilling out, etc. She always looks like a sausage coming out of its casing.

        • marlie

          Half of the time, if she wore the exact same thing in a size or two bigger (so that it actually FIT her), it wouldn’t look nearly as tacky as it ends up looking.

          • demidaemon

            The other half of the time, we get…THIS.

          • FrigidDiva

            100% agree. Many women I work with have the same problem though. No one knows the size # you’re wearing, but they can sure as hell tell when something is too small. There’s an epidemic of too-smallitis that’s resulted in muffin top and plumbers crack galore.

      • demidaemon

        I’m glad you said it and not me, though I was thinking it.

    • Sophie

      Um… I like this lace better than the white one? About all the good I can say.
      When did it become alright to walk around in your underwear and a mosquito net anyway?

    • Anna

      Naomi Campbell’s reaction and laughter on The Morning Show says it all.

      • Rand Ortega

        Wasn’t that delicious?

        • Anna

          So, SOOO delicious. I may have watched and rewatched it an obscene number of times.

          • Rand Ortega

            As my Mama used to say, “Butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth!”.

          • demidaemon

            I saw that, too. Oh, Naomi, never change, you batshit crazy supermodel. Although, to be fair, that was EXTREMELY restrained for Naomi.

            • Anna

              I couldn’t believe it either. But who needs words when you have that laugh?

            • demidaemon

              True. The laugh that the fashion world (hopefully) heard.

            • Anna

              Oh, I think they heard. And in case they didn’t, their Facebook page will hopefully make sure they hear it.

            • demidaemon

              HA!

      • Little_Olive

        I NEED to nail that laugh.

        And thank you, that was delicious.

        • alyce1213

          I want a GIF of that laugh, to send to folks who deserve it.

          • Anna

            YES.

    • BlairBear

      I dont know I think the world is over Kim and Kanye. I feel like stars cycle quicker these days and most people have moved from the love/hate draw to the you saturated the marketplace please go away. Tabloids dont give them covers anymore because when they do sales drop. Thats why PMK is pushing Klhoe and the other one. So if their fans won’t buy a tabloid with them on the cover its hard to imagine them picking up Vogue. Also it wouldn’t surprise me if many of those twitter followers are fake. Finally there is a difference between following someone on twitter for free and purchasing products with them on it. Also the Vogue Facebook page is a mess right now. They keep taking down posts because of the amount of vitriol

      • Little_Olive

        Wow, I just checked. There is a petition for sabotage and everything!! But I keep thinking there must be something we don’t know…. Because there is NO WAY no one in Conde Nast saw this could backlash.

        • BlairBear

          I think its the right decision about three years too late. I could totally understand this when the Kardashians were at the peak of their fame and people were fascinated by them even if they didnt like them. and they kept putting up a free clutch with purchase thing and taking it down. The issue downloaded on my iPad and I dont have the stomach to look at it.

        • decormaven

          I almost hate to comment on the whole debacle because the analytics of how many mentions of it are being spun – “Look, everyone is talking about Vogue now!”- and that makes it relevant and OK. Not in my book, not ever.

        • Lisa_Co

          The Vogue Facebook page is amazing in the amount of negativity this cover has garnished ( but I fully agree with). American Vogue has been in a long decline with AW but now it’s jumped the shark. I’ll be curious to see if they fire her or “promote” her to a new position.

          • BayTampaBay

            Harper’s Bazaar is a much better fashion magazine!

        • MaryMcClelland

          They did it for attention. Pure and simple. I do not anticipate a spike in sales for this edition. Kims most recent cover of Glamour was the lowest selling one of the year. There is a difference between people being curious about the Kardashians and mocking them for free on the internet and actually taking them serious, as in on Vogue. I think Conde Nast DID see the backlash and wanted it for attention. Am Vogue has been dropping in sales for years and its time for Anna to go.

          • BayTampaBay

            Agree! As I said before, “Harper’s Bazaar is a much better fashion magazine!”

    • leahpapa

      The real question is, will Jezebel offer $10K for unretouched photos of this one?

    • Cloveradams

      Apart from the fact that this dress makes her look like X-Men’s Mystique mid-transformation, the weather in NYC has been in the brisk 30s, and I have to think that even a leather jacket will only do so much against the elements when you’ve effectively wrapped yourself in a big doily.

      • BlairBear

        but she gets heat/life from the glare of the photo flashes. its celebrity photosynthesis

      • demidaemon

        Hey, don’t go talking about Mystique like that!

    • BlairBear

      She looks so out of it. Also as much as I dislike her and everything she represents I feel bad that she feels the need to dress her body so badly and fuck with her face.

      • kimmeister

        She’s starting to morph into the lion-face lady.

    • Synnae

      Lorenzo’s Twitter meltdown was amazing. That and the JM post made my Friday.

          The Joe Manjello post on Sausage Friday

    • MilaXX

      Whatever Kim.
      Can we talk about Seth Meyers show? I’m trying to like it but 1) His monologue is basically his SNL news desk standing up. 2) The attempt at banter with Fred Armisen bugs & is incredibly unfunny. 3) His furniture is awful. The desk and the interview chairs are much too small for the set. The guest all look like they are praying those tiny chairs don’t collapse under their weight. The rest of the show is okay. He benefits from being on NBC which appears to be doing a package deal of Jimmy Fallon/Seth Myers/The Today show for anyone with a project to poledance andhavng funnier friends willing to stop by. Oddly enough (and back on topic sort of) his interview with Kanye was one of the best ones I’ve seen. He is clearly a fan of the music and unlike Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t condescending to Kanye. The result was a great interview followed by a terrific musical performance by Kanye.

      • marlie

        Kanye’s interview was SO much better than I expected. As for the rest, I agree that the furniture selection sucks. And I can’t stand Fred Armisen, and consider him to be one of the least-funny-in-real-life alums of SNL in recent years, so I think their banter is awkward and not funny as well.

        I like Seth, though, and I think he needs to work out some of the kinks, but I think those kinks are pretty significant.

        • MilaXX

          I was so happy when Fred went to SXSW and wasn’t there.

          • http://ediblecville.blogspot.com Libby

            Fred Armisen. Sketch Killer. ;) But I’m a hypocrite ’cause I like Portlandia….

            • Sarah

              I do NOT UNDERSTAND that program. I am young, I watch a lot of stuff, and I’m told I have a sense of humor. I don’t get it. Is it because I’m not a hipster? From the East Coast? Are they playing the same people the whole time or switching it up? I have burning questions.

            • MilaXX

              I’m not a Portlandia fan either. Partially due to my feed hate and partially because I don’t find hipsters funny even when t’s intentional.

      • lrober03

        Agreed, he really only knows how to deliver one liners and then change the topic. However, I’ve really enjoyed watching just the clips of the interviews. All the guests seem pretty comfortable and Seth is pretty good at moving the interview in the direction he wants and bantering with the guests.

      • demidaemon

        Since the only late night show I watch is Chelsea Lately, I can’t really comment except to say the only other one I would go out of my way to watch now is Craig Ferguson.

        • MilaXX

          I watch sever late shows but I cannot stand Chelsea.

          • demidaemon

            To each their own. She is pretty much what I love in a comic, which is probably part of the reason why I love Bianca Del Rio on RPDR as well.

            • MilaXX

              I think she crosses the line. She reminds me of those people who think she can say anything because she’s dated black men. I like Bianca Del Rio, but Chelsea works my nerves.

            • demidaemon

              Fair enough.

        • BayTampaBay

          Chelsea Lately is the only late night show I watch too!

          • demidaemon

            YAY!

    • BrooklynBomber

      I need to go lie down now.

    • rh33

      Sure hope no one spilled hot coffee on her at dinner.

    • andi56

      It looks like a very elaborate sausage casing. With sausage-casing footwear.

    • deelup

      Also, not even remotely warm enough to wear that asinine look.

    • Rand Ortega

      Is this the 1st time in history a magazine Jumps The Shark? Sure feels like it.

      • makeityourself

        No. I’m just as po’d that Graydon Carter wimped out on the Gwyneth story. Two bad decisions so far in 2014 by arguably the most well known mag editors in the US.

    • justineyy

      My ankles are in pain just looking at those horrendous shoes! Any tighter and her feet would be turning black from lack of circulation! And her “RealDoll mask” is FREAKING me out.

      • Mismarker

        Really. It’s enough makeup for two people.

        • marlie

          Enough makeup for two people for a week.

    • Nancer

      Are we really surprised that Kim wore this? This dress is just tacky. So very, very tacky. Rachel Roy, shame on you for foisting this on us. You can – and should – do better. Note to all designers – there is nothing attractive or elegant or interesting about showing us people’s underwear.We don’t care to see it on the runway, on the street, on television shows, basically – anywhere.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I cannot like your comment too many times. the sheer, lace over undies is not ever,ever going to work.

        • marlie

          The first, maybe second time, one could consider it very “editorial” on the right person. But with seemingly EVERY ladystar attempting some version of this over the last 2 years, I’ve had it.

    • LipstickForPigs

      When your feet ooze out of your shoes, it’s time to reconsider. Lord Jesus there’s a fire…

    • Janet B

      I just can’t.

    • Danielle

      You spelled “fellating” wrong.

      • KendraMR

        *performing cunnilingus on Anna Wintour :-)

    • teensmom99

      So now we know that an engagement to Jude Law is less than a marriage to Kanye.

      • marlie

        Still only an engagement…

    • schadenfreudelicious

      This is an aggressively ugly dress, it does little for the model, even less for Kim..

      • Skippymom1

        The use of the word “aggressively” to describe the ugly made my heart sing. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but, you miss? Did it wonderfully. Thank you.

      Can I put forth a motion to hereby ban the Kardashian Klan from the pages of TLo Celebrity Bitchery Inc.?

      hate is such a strong word

      • PastryGoddess

        Would you prefer:
        Loathing, animosity, abhor, abomination,disgust, revulsion..et al? There are more words but I don’t think the filter would allow them

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          If there’s a filter it’s a generous one. I’m sure I’ve called someone a cunt before now.

          • marlie

            I can’t stop laughing…

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      “after dining with Anna Wintour”?!! Does Anna ever eat? Seriously, what is dinner with AW like? You get a few sips of water, smell the bread and then leave?

      • makeityourself

        Let’s imagine that Anna arrived first. In come K and K. Anna gags at the sight of those shoes paired with that dress, and then completely loses it when the leather jacket comes off. THIS is your Vogue cover girl, Ms. Wintour!

        It’s obvious AW has made a deal with the devil. This issue will sell more than any other in the mag’s history, you watch and see. It’s the end of the world as we know it.

        • FrigidDiva

          It’s guaranteed to because Kris will send the whole K-Klan out to buy up every issue they can find.

    • http://ediblecville.blogspot.com Libby

      Ah HAIL nah! This is one hot mess. There’s a reason Rachel Roy went bankrupt…

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        She did?

        • Rand Ortega

          Her signature line, Rachel Roy Collection, was just discontinued by its parent company, The Jones Group.

    • lrober03

      Watching the interview, I really didn’t mind this from the armpits up (which is less than 10% of the dress). The rest….not so much

    • alyce1213

      She looks like she’s wrapped in caul fat (the lacey membrane from cow/pig intestines that you wrap around meat to keep it moist when cooking).
      The sight of her and the sound of her voice are thoroughly repulsive.

      • Anna

        HAHAHAHAHAHA, you win for the use of “caul fat.” How did I not see that comparison? I guess I blocked out those memories of having to work with it in culinary school, along with sweetbreads.

      • BLauD

        I am so, so glad someone else sees that so I don’t have to feel weird mentioning it! That was immediately where my mind went too.

      • Rand Ortega

        It ain’t called “tripe” for nothin’!

    • Adrienne

      the Vogue cover made me throw up a little. I haven’t seen this yet – haven’t made a stop to the grocery store to view tacky mags while in the checkout line lately.

    • Latin Buddy

      Look, what irritates me the most is that she didn’t earn her fame. There is no craft there. I would say the same thing about Paris Hilton. It has really cheapened the value of Vogue when this ___________ can get on the cover.

      • Jaeda Laurez

        I have no quarrel with Kim being on the cover, or the source of her fame. This notion of “earning” fame, when models are famous for simply winning the genetic lottery, or a terrible actress gets picked for a notable role, a la Halle Berry, is a specious one. IMO. That said, this outfit is TERRIBLE.

        • marlie

          I’ll give you that models and actresses “lucked” into their roles by some combinations of good genes/connections/right-place-at-right-time, BUT the fact that that’s their JOB, and they’re perceived to be good enough at it to be considered the top of their field, grants them access to the cover of Vogue. For someone whose fame is solely the result of a sex tape and an ongoing willingness to foist herself and her family on the public, the cover of Vogue is anathema to everyone else who has had to “earn” the right to be on Vogue because of their talent.

          • Rand Ortega

            Not to mention the aesthetic standard Vogue’s customers/paid subscribers are accustomed to. Wintour sold out that tradition in a cheap, sensationalist gamble to broaden Vogue’s readership.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

            You forgot “terrible” when writing “sex tape”. I really hope that on her tax returns that year, she had to put “income received because Brandy’s brother relieved himself on me” on everything.

          • demidaemon

            Also, to be fair, not every model gets a Vogue cover. They generally have to work their arse off and build their way up before they get that opportunity. Nowadays, models are lucky to get a spread, and , if this continues (see above), actresses may be in the same boat.

            • BayTampaBay

              Must agree…How many models have been on the cover of Vogue in the last year??????

      • marlie

        ^^THIS.

    • Chelsea

      and THIS post is why you two are my favorite bloggers.

    • vitaminC

      Nice krotch.

    • MsC

      This could be in Sports Illustrated as part of their classic feature “This Week’s Sign That the Apocalypse is Upon Us.”

    • quiltrx

      UGH. That’s all I can come up with.
      It’s a shame…that lace, just as a textile, is VERY pretty. Why Rachel Roy made it into a shapeless, undies-baring sack is beyond me. And why KK thought this was the look for her is even more of a mystery.

    • AthenaJ

      I need to channel Quint from Jaws on this one: “The thing about a Kardashian… its got lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll’s eyes…”

    • tallgirl1204

      this would be so pretty if it was lined. Really. Too bad to see it fail.

      • BayTampaBay

        I would cut the dress in two and wear the top with black leather skinnies.

    • Tanya Wade

      Thank you for Lorenzo’s meltdown. I missed it the first time.
      All I kept thinking was that somewhere, Grace Coddington was alternately weeping, laughing and putting pins in a Wintour voodoo doll. Pray that it works. Pray.

      • AthenaJ

        Yes, I’d love to get Grace’s opinion of this entire debacle! Preferably over expensive martinis at a fabulous T-Lounge featured bar.

    • Fannie Wolston

      It’s a case of the Emperor’s New Clothes. With every fashion disaster her toadies gush how wonderful her fashion sense is, guess she fancies herself some erotic exotic pin up girl.

    • dalgirl

      BKs, can you help me out here? I’m looking at this on my phone and the eyes aren’t what they used to be. Is the dress on the model partially lined?

      The non-model disgusts beyond words.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        I don’t think so, but I think the model is wearing more subtle undies.

        • alyce1213

          Also, since the model’s skin is darker, the contrast is less jarring.

    • KinoEye

      I was thoroughly disgusted about Vogue and wondered what had happened to Anna Wintour. I thought something must have been seriously wrong with her. Now, it pisses me off even more because it’s so obviously a publicity stunt. Leave the attention-whoring to the “celebrities” you put on your cover now, Anna. Although I find it hilarious that one of the cover stories is about the “rise of social media supermodel.” I thought she decided they weren’t fit to represent the industry.

      And then I see phrases like “selfie-made Kate Upton” and “#Worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple,” and I think it’s a cheap, sad ploy to get with the times, so to speak. Embracing social media and its role in the fashion industry. That’s all fine and good, but it comes off as so pathetic and desperate that they’re like an older person (Like my uncle) who are just learning the ways of the internet: “What’s this Tweeter thing?”

      That dress… khjvfieowcjt894t@#$.!!!

      • Glammie

        See, that’s how it comes across to me–AW wanted to raise a ruckus, but she just seems behind the times with Kimye–they’re so 20-aughts. It makes her seem dated. One problem with trying to be edgy is that it *really* backfires if you’re not actually on the edge. Wintour seems out of touch–not just a question of age, either. Grace Coddington will always be cool because she knows how to do her thing (plus, I just saw part of The September Issue and realize that Grace and I both like to walk around in black dresses and flat red sandals, so Grace is my new heroine.)

        • BayTampaBay

          Glammie, I think the New York Post said it best:

          “I wouldn’t be surprised if Grace Coddington soon announced her retirement,” a longtime fashion commentator told me. “How can an artist like Coddington continue in such a bottom-line-obsessed environment? As she no doubt sees, Vogue has become a nothing more than a shopping catalog of over-priced, mass-produced, pop-culture-generated junk.”

        • KinoEye

          Grace is a bloody genius. The September Issue was great, but she was my favorite part about it. I’d never heard of her before then, but now I’m of the opinion that she ranks right up there with some of the greatest fashion photographers of all time. I know she’s predominately Vogue’s creative director, but some of her photos can go toe to toe with the best stuff Avedon ever shot.

          • Glammie

            Grace started out as a model. I have an old book on British Vogue and she’s in there as a model–and even as a model, she had this ineffable style and edge to her. She was the creative director on the Kimye shot–and you can see the effort, but Kim is like a wax doll–I watched a minute of the clip of her in that dress–and she’s just so damn flat in terms of expression. Little girl voice and too much Botox and filler. Not a good model.

    • Akemi

      Oh wow this is hideous. You’d think covering it a little with a jacket would help, but it actually looks worse.

      • B_C_J

        You are right. It makes her look even more undressed.

    • http://urban-gypsy.com/ Tess Danesi

      Anna’s punishment for putting Kim and Kanye on the cover is she had to sit through dinner with them staring at Kim’s undies. Serves you right, Anna, oh yes, it does. May you have to dine with Kim for all eternity!

      • PastryGoddess

        That’s like the worst curse ever.

      • Rand Ortega

        I’m afraid of you & your voodoo doll. ; )

    • Nika E

      Her feet/shoes lawd have mercy. Everything about this is off putting. Its just ugly as fuck. Ugh…

    • B_C_J

      This is absolutely not a flattering dress for her. It actually is indicative of her taste level & her judgment when this is what she decides to wear for dinner. I am certain ms. Wintour had no desire to see Kim’s undergarments as she was dining.
      Kim will never be chic. However she will never be poor.

      • Skippymom1

        KK has taste and judgement? Even at the lowest of levels? I thought about it for a minute and decided “Nope” she has neither, not even in a leftover Louboutin shoebox on some forgotten shelf in her mansion. You are certainly spot on that she will never be poor, but it saddens me that she is insanely wealthy for being a whore. See: Sex Tape

    • NMMagpie

      Wow. I am floored but how unbelievably god-awful this is.

      I thought if you had a lot of cash, you could actually afford “good” clothes. Shows you what I know.

      • FrigidDiva

        Dolly Parton said it best, “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.”

        • BayTampaBay

          True, but for some reason Dolly could always make cheap work really well.

    • Danielle

      Pssst. Kim, I can see your undies.

      Seriously, girl. You’re someone’s mother now. Stop that.

      • Rand Ortega

        So’s Kris Jenner. That fact seems to be lost on that entire family.

    • Imasewsure

      I could live with the tacky shoes since the rest is so gawd awful. Of Vogue we shall not speak!

    • Nexli B

      It’s unflattering, tasteless, and ugly. It’s like a Trifecta of Tacky.

    • Anapestic

      I think KK’s point of view is that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, so for her, this gets done what she wants to get done.

      That doesn’t excuse Vogue, though.

      It amuses me somewhat to think of what Grace Coddington’s reaction to all of this must be.

    • MarieLD

      The Shape Issue is — was — always one I enjoyed buying and looking at. And it even has Mindy Kaling in it. But I can’t bring myself to purchase this issue. I have no idea who she actually is and why she’s famous, other than she’s famous because she’s famous. And I have nothing nice to say about him.

      • MaryMcClelland

        Remember when they first started the Shape Issue. And how awesome it was! Yeah, sad.

    • Cheryl

      I actually found two things I liked about it. a.) The colour b.) The jacket, Everything else BLARG. Her flesh is creeping out of the little holes, that’s just nasty. Now I’m not skinny minny, I’m not fat shaming her, but if you are a woman that isn’t slim, don’t wear a garment that your skin can poke out like some kind of bizarre hernia.

    • Glammie

      Was wondering how you were going to deal with that Wintour-inflicted horror. (And I’m a subscriber–ugh. Think I’ll mulch the cover before it enters the house.)

      Anyway, just read that the tabloids have found that newstand sales drop *substantially* when the Kartrashians are on the cover. I think Wintour missed the bandwagon. If she’s going to play this game, she needed to have done Kimye at least a year back. They just don’t have the pull anymore.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Have you considered whether your garden would be insulted by having that mulch? Of course, mulching or otherwise recycling the cover would be a constructive use!

        • Glammie

          Good point. Will have to avoid anything edible or nicely scented. I live near a busy street–so maybe the median strip–those are tough plants, what’s a little more pollution?

          Have you seen Vogue’s FB page–people are *ranting*–doesn’t matter what Vogue is trying to post about.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I haven’t seen Vogue’s FB page-I’ll have to check it out for the entertainment value.
            as for the plants, if they’re tough, they sound like they can take a bit of tacky mulch!

            • Glammie

              Vogue keeps trying to change the subject and the response is always about the awfulness of Kimye.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              well, they’re certainly getting a reaction to the cover, aren’t they?

            • Glammie

              Yep. Collective stiletto stamping. I just don’t see it translating into sales. I mean we all know who Kim Kardashian is–so it’s not like this is going to make one pick up Vogue to find out more.

          • mlle

            I just went over. It’s kind of magnificent.

            • Lisa_Co

              It’s unbelievable.

    • Dagney

      The tragic thing is this could have worked. Hemline, first of all. The sleeves, second of all. Wear a goddamn slip, it’s not Vegas time. Shoes, as in a pair that is flattering with this garment.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The dress needs hemming, and yes, a slip or lined in a color that would make that lace work.

    • frannyprof

      Ugh. I can’t. And that dress wouldn’t look good on *anyone.* Which pains me, because I’m a fan of Rachel Roy.

    • CB

      For some reason I got an odd urge to defend Kim in response to all the Vogue cover hoopla. Although I do giggle when I imagine poor Grace Coddington’s response to the decision to put Kim and Kanye on the cover. And the dress featured in this post is flat-out heinous.

    • Lex

      What is up with that glazed-over facial expression she sports in every picture now?! Make it stop!!! It’s like she’s straining very hard to look, um…dignified ?!?!…while walking around in public in a hideous lace dress that show off even uglier granny panties underneath. Wait…what?!

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Dignity is not a word that will ever be associated with a Kardashian.

    • Gatto Nero

      The melding of celebrity with the world of *everything else* is ongoing. There is no separation anymore: fashion, art, music, literature — take your pick.
      I second Lorenzo’s meltdown.
      And that overpriced beach coverup paired with the black undies is just tragic.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Rachel Roy, I thought you were better than that.

      • The Counselor

        Truth. I mean, Kim’s never gonna klass up a garment, but the one she had to start with was already tacky-ass.

    • ReallyNow

      Loved and re-tweeted Lorenzo’s meltdown. I concurred with every sentiment expressed. On to this travesty of an outfit and makeup….you know what, I can’t.

    • mrspeel2

      I can’t understand how someone who always looks like she wants to punch the paps in the face, while also appearing to care less that they’re taking her photo, will go out of her way to attract their attention. What’s up with that??

    • 25or6to4

      Well, her darker hair color looks lovely, at least.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Cher uncle Lorenzo, please take a virtual seat next to me and we can melt down together.
      The Balmain jacket is a good piece. Am I surprised that a Kardashian chose a dress that allows her to flash her lingerie? No, because the raison d’etre of the Kardashian family is the more buzz, the better.

    • butterflysunita

      The only way Vogue can hope to recover even a modicum of credibility is to put Lupita on the cover. Stat.

      • alyce1213

        I hope they do that. It might redeem Vogue, maybe a little.

    • Kitten Mittons

      If I were Kim, and I had the entire world talking about my undeserved Vogue cover, and I were going to be accompanying my famous fiancé to a place where I KNOW there will be paparazzi taking photos (because we called them there), I would class it up so damn hard. While I have everyone’s attention, I would try my absolute hardest to be the epitome of a walking fashionista. I would also stay as far away from the trashtastic looks as I possibly could, just to show people that they are WRONG, and that I can be stylish and chic, and that maybe I haven’t done it yet, but I will EARN that Vogue cover going forward.

      In other words, I would do everything I could to try and rebrand myself right now at this very moment, and then sell it like it’s got an expiration date. Vogue was a pivoting point for her, and she missed the chance. She is a GORGEOUS woman, and she has a shapely body with which many women identify. She could have a legitimate place somewhere in the fashion industry if she showed that she actually has some chops.

      Further, she somehow worked a deal with Anna Wintour to get the Vogue cover, and she even got Anna Wintour to say, “No, she tooooootally deserves to be on the cover.”

      So, at this particular point in her life, she has the unique opportunity to change people’s minds about her, even if only a little at first. And she has the opportunity to repay Ms. Wintour a little and say, “I can belong. Look at how chic I am. Anna Wintour was right, and she is vindicated.”

      If she had shown up in something amazing, not only would she look better, I would have thought she was savvy for playing up the controversy and showing the world something different.

      News Flash: It would be more interesting and talked-about at this point if you showed up dressed like a grown-ass woman.

      Which is my point in a nutshell, I guess. If she dressed like she knew what she was doing RIGHT NOW, she would get just as much publicity as she does for dressing like a hooker, and she might weasel her way into something more than a reality show and a crappy clothing line.

      Instead, she continues to wear shit like this, which says to me that she has no interest in anything but the attention and money. She basically created an entire career from a sex tape, so I’ve always thought she was more savvy than she got credit for. That was a mistake.

      And I don’t buy that she thinks this is chic and classy. I think she dressed for maximum publicity, and she’ll get it.

      • alyce1213

        I think she and the fashion puppet master, Kanye, actually THINK this is chic and classy. And therein lies the problem: Delusion.

        • Kitten Mittons

          I can see that argument, and it may be true.

          For some reason, I really don’t think that’s the case. Kanye, maybe, I really can’t say one way or the other.

          I don’t deny that maybe Kim thinks she looks GOOD here. Sexy, even. And probably fashion forward since she’s wearing a known designer. But I think she knows the difference between classy and what she’s wearing here. I think she’s dressing this way on purpose for effect, and I think she doesn’t realize that she would have a much bigger effect by going the less expected route.

          I could be totally wrong. But she’s been around too long, and is too hyper-aware of her image at all times (because that’s all she has, her image) to not know the difference.

      • demidaemon

        You should be doing PR for the stars, because this would definitely be a coup in so many ways.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Nah, if anyone, it should be TLo.

          I would say that normally the fashion world wouldn’t accept her, but she and Wintour are bff’s now, so there’s that. And the public will forgive a lot to see a good turn around story.

          I dunno, the whole Vogue thing is aggravating. It was clearly a publicity stunt on both sides. At least use that publicity to move forward, which seemed like the whole reason to me in the first place. When I saw the cover, I thought that she wanted to be taken seriously soooooo badly. That’s what came across to me.

          And then the she continues to do this. She basically used her publicity to garner………..more short-term publicity. I’m stunned.

          I need to move on. I need a cookie.

          • demidaemon

            Cookies are definitely good. I would recommend my mother’s coconut cookie recipe, which has way too much butter in it, but that is what makes it so yummy.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Oh, I loooooooove coconut. Excellent choice.

      • marlie

        This is genius, and you’re absolutely right that this is a huge missed opportunity.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Just observations, but thank you. I’ve calmed down now, I think.

      • silly little thumb

        Totally agree. Kim needs some MAJOR rebranding, stat. If she hires new stylists, get photographed at some shows, and makes a real fashion line, then maybe the world will respect her as a fashion icon. Until then.

      • BayTampaBay

        While you are up…can you get me a cup too?

    • crash1212

      Fashion Victim – if you look it up, you’ll see KK’s face. Why the media continue to give her the attention she so desperately craves for no apparent reason other than self promotion, I will never know. I have been known to cancel subscriptions and not watch shows that feature this fame whore. I’m going to give Uncles T & Lo a chance in the hopes that they won’t be jumping on this bandwagon and featuring her much…if at all…in these hallowed pages.

    • Sofia

      she really is beautiful, her body is gloriously beautiful, and she can look so elegant or sexy when dressed properly. she needs to figure out that her version of a “do me” outfit is not the same as it would be for someone with a body like kristen stewart. while this outfit would not be enviable on stewart either, it might garner less scorn on her. kim could even keep this dress, but she’d have to remove the visible underwear by adding a sheer layer underneath and get better shoes. she’s too fleshy for those shoes. she is such a fashion victim here.

    • jw_ny

      Just want to post my “omg!” and “wtf!” comment in regards to this KK outfit…oh yeah, also “ewww!”

      I honestly don’t understand the fascination that some have with regards to that clan, but I’m also not going to lose any sleep over them being a part of our pop culture. I do my best to ignore….except when I can’t. ;)

      Did they ship this issue with a bag to vomit in? Who’s next months cover? A bevy of Mafia Housewives or Honey Boo Boo?

      • makeityourself

        Mark my words, there will be a Gwyneth “newly uncoupled” cover within two issues.

        • alyce1213

          “Newly consciously uncoupled” Straight from the mouth of Goop. Is there an unconscious version?

          • makeityourself

            Yes, I omitted the word “consciously” on purpose, because as a former editor, I don’t like the two adverbs together. But who am I kidding? Anna doesn’t give a crap about the legacy of her magazine, so why would I? “NewLY consciousLY uncoupled” it is, and let’s add hashtag too.

            • Skippymom1

              Oh please don’t add the hashtag and give Gwennie what she wants – which is to have an asterisk notation in the Urban Dictionary for that abomination of a phrase. *Term coined by Ms. Gwyneth Paltrow, star of stage, screen and her own mind.”

            • BayTampaBay

              I really feel for Chris Martin.

            • Skippymom1

              I feel for the kids too.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            It would be good if they could simply say that they decided to separate or divorce and are working to make this easier for their children. Enough with the “consciously uncoupled”, please. Standard English will suffice.

            • Farthingale

              Standard English will never suffice for The Girl Who Does Everything Bettter Than You. “Divorce” has such banal, pedestrian connotations.

          • Farthingale

            There WILL be a Portlandia episode about conscious uncoupling. “Divorce” has been done to death.

    • BobStPaul

      There are two words that immediately spring to mind whenever I see Kim Kardashian these days: Stepford Wife. She always has this blank, automaton-like expression since she got together with Kanye.

      • SouthernGirlRena

        That bothers me too. There is only one picture where she is looking up and none of her looking directly at the camera or smiling. I am by no means a fan of hers but she just looks sad.

    • demidaemon

      BLARGH. UGH. That’s my response to everything except TLo’s commentary here.

    • mlle

      This outfit is so bad that I can’t even come up with a bitchy bon mot. Nothing about it works.

      • Little_Olive

        Really, the fact that there is so little comment on those atrocious shoes (which by the way don’t go) speaks volumes of Kim.

      • Courtney

        I sighed sadly when I saw the full picture, but otherwise what else is there to say?

    • Fraggle

      Thank God, there are other Vogues out there. Vogue France, here I come. – Does anyone of you think about Vic Beckham? I feel sorry for her. Really do. – And this “dress”… well… I’m done with see-through stuff. This one’s particularly ugly. And I’m just talking about the dress. This woman… yeah, whatever.

      • Lisa_Co

        IMO Vogue Italia is even better than Vogue France. More interesting fashion photos. That being said, maybe Carine Roitfeld can come over here to replace AW in American Vogue.

      • Anna

        YES! I thought immediately of Victoria Beckham when I heard about this catastrophe. She has been repeatedly denied since her cover with The Spice Girls and actually has what Kanye West’s fiancee can only hope to dream about: a respected fashion business. Then again, I may have given Kanye West’s fiancee too much credit there by suggesting that she is self-aware enough to be capable of hoping to dream about such things.

    • Kirstin McAulay

      The hair is a synthetic wig right? There’s better hair on RuPaul’s Drag Race!!

    • swissgirl

      Kim a pretty girl. That’s about all there is to say about her. Now let’s talk about Rachel Roy–did she allow this debacle? If so–SHAME ON YOU. If not, we’re waiting for your public acknowledgement that you had nothing to do with it.

    • Pennymac

      The Vogue facebook page is blowing up. Their marketers and PR department have to be pulling out their hair!

      So, what you’re saying is, T&L is not a Kardashian-Free Zone? I may have to rethink my devotion to you guys. Ok, I love you too much to leave, but please, keep KK and all who are related to her to the absolute minimum…Please? In the meantime, at least that dress is good for a laugh. I mean, she really thinks she looks hot, doesn’t she? Poor child. Should we tell her?

    • icm

      Is that really her? Or did Madame Tussauds just unveil their latest wax figure. Oh Ya! and are granny panties back in style Kanye?

      And she’s done this look twice, thrice already with the same undergarments as well, she should let Kylie shop for her

    • vickilu

      Does this mean we’re going to be getting more Korean Vogue and less US? Oh please say yes.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Why even bother wearing the dress?

      • Fannie Wolston

        yes! is she’s shilling for walmart’s playtex bras and girdles?

    • AnaRoW

      Maybe I’m misremembering but I swear she’s dressing worse since she hooked up with Kanye. I’m not a fan of Kim’s but I really can’t think of anything she’s done that seems to warrant the huge amount of vitriol she gets. I get that she has no discernible talent, is overexposed, and she’s shallow but that’s not as if that’s something we’ve never seen before. There’s a whole reality industry that thrives on people like her. So why do people act as if she’s the worst thing that’s ever happened?

      • Mojone

        I did something I never expected to do. One night when I was channel surfing I watched an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And then I watched two more. What surprised me was that they all seemed rather innocent and sweet. Self involved, yes, but mostly loving and kind to each other and to their friends and totally accepting of other people and their foibles. They may not warrant all this attention, but they don’t warrant the vitriol either.

        • LaSylphide

          I haven’t seen the show, so that’s an interesting viewpoint. I think a lot of the problem is that, they may be sweet and innocent, but so are a lot of us, and we work very hard to make ends meet, but our sweetness and innocence doesn’t make us filthy rich. I have bad taste, but I’m poor. Seems a little unfair, somehow, you know?

        • BayTampaBay

          I think the large amount of misplaced vitriol is due more to the “last nail in the coffin” of a disintegrating Vogue magazine than anything else.

          Vogue has been going downhill at an accelerating rate for the last two years.

          I think Anna Wintour really wants to be the editor of Vanity Fair. IMHO, fashion seems to be the least of her concerns.

    • heuristicvalue

      She looks like an extraterrestrial.

    • EveEve

      What I wouldn’t have given to be a fly on the wall at the Anna Wintour/KK table (and frankly, I’d be more interested in knowing what AW wore than what KK wore). Feels a bit sad for Anna Wintour, not melt-down disgusted with her. What forces must have been brought to bare (heh) to have forced her to allow this to happen to her Vogue? Maybe she was just unable to say no to the stark realities of selling magazines in today’s environment. Sads I tells ya. Sads.

      And I am desperately hoping that the Universe gets its fill of the Kardashians very soon, and they all go the way of the Hilton Sisters and Jennifer Aniston. That is, far away from this blog.

    • Laylalola

      Hilarious writing, I really did laugh out loud.

      Too bad Kim Kardashian has apparently zero sense of humor about herself and her absurdity.

      But at least now I don’t want my dinner.

    • Judih1

      Vogue just hit a new low in taste. I haven’t subscribed to them in years and this is a reminder of why I haven’t. Maybe Kanye/Kim PAID Anna Wintour under the table or took out expensive ads. That could be the only reason I could somewhat justify them being on the cover. Diana Vreeland must be turning over in her grave

          I haven’t seen Patty Hansen in YEARS (maybe decades). I wonder what she looks like now – hopefully better than her hubby.

          –GothamTomato

    • Trickytrisha

      Not only is that possibly the tackiest I’ve seen her, those granny panties look like they might have been bought in the plus size section of a cheapo catalog. Yes, this woman has more money than all of us put together, but it won’t buy her taste or class – neither does appearing on the cover of magazine that just sold it’s soul.

    • DTLAFamilies

      I worked for Vogue’s corporate parent about 15 years ago, and even back then the Conde Nast publications weren’t big money makers. It was all being propped up by the huge profits coming from the newspaper side. But now most newspapers are barely surviving so the magazines are staring down a barrel. Remember, we don’t read the Saturday Evening Post or Life anymore. We’re going to see some big magazine failures very soon. AW isn’t stupid, but she is scared and willing to try stunts to keep the magazine afloat.

      • decormaven

        Amen – it’s called pandering to the lowest common denominator. Too bad Netflix isn’t currently streaming “The September Issue.” When I think of AW’s comments – “It’s Vogue, let’s lift it” – and what we now see from her editorial direction, what a downward spin.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          That was such a good documentary-and Anna Wintour came across as having some perspective on her career, and fashion.
          I suppose as a print mag that Vogue is feeling pressure to sell more copies and generate more ad pages, but not sure if this is going to do the trick

          • decormaven

            I think the current move can best be described as a “cash grab.” Sad, really.

    • suzq

      Sierraye….could still happen. Maybe Anna Wintour will officiate. They can name their kid “Go.”
      As for Kim’s dress, geez o pete, Rachel Roy, Kim is not a tall, emaciated model. Do all those dresses come in the same length? Even the arms? Can’t you make a couple for normal sized people? Kim is your billboard and you’re essentially letting her crap all over your dress. It looks horrible. Not that I really dug the styling on the model, either.

      With a SLIP and some key tailoring, this dress could sing. So far, it’s been rendered pretty mute. Whatever….

    • Milos Mom

      She looked heinous and obviously uncomfortable by how she was hunched over. Not to mention the dress was incredibly inappropriate for the show. The only reason I watched the show is because I always do and didn’t realize she was on until the opening credits. Then she walked out and my girlfriend and I both gasped in horror, chewed her out for a few minutes and then we tuned the show out and went about our business…

    • Columbinia

      How is this worse than doing a flattering article on Syrian President Assad’s wife a couple of years ago as the popular uprising against him was beginning? Maybe I just don’t take Vogue seriously enough to think Kim Kardashian is a betrayal of its standards. Nevertheless, the Kardashian fan base is a mystery to me. She’s famous for being famous, right, and squeezing her zaftig shape into all sorts of clothes?

      • Glammie

        What I remember about the timing of the Assad’s wife article is that it came out right before the uprisings and had therefore been written before that. So bad idea and terrible timing, but Assad had not actually started brutally attacking his people. He was more standard Middle Eastern dictator. Definitely iffy whitewashing article from the get-go, but not as godawful as it looked in retrospect. Though another indication of Wintour’s editorial judgment being shot at this point.

    • Melissa Morrison Fernandez

      I just love how the first caption says “Kim Kardashian spotted heading to “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in New York City in a Rachel Roy lace dress.”

      As if the rare and elusive Kim Kardashian was just slipping out the back door and someone happened to catch a glimpse of her, rather than “Kim Kardashian appears before an army of paparazzi who had probably been notified in advance of her every move.”

    • Lilyana_F

      I haven’t even opened Vogue in ages. I see they’re digging their graves at this point. RIP “fashion” magazines… And as for this useless person, if her job is to constantly show up in photos and on tv EVERYWHERE, the least she can do is “buy” some taste and class.

    • Wink

      I give Kanye credit for having a tiny bit of talent and making a career out of it. I give Kim (and her mom) credit for taking zero talent and turning it into a gazillion-dollar empire. But, I give their fans NO credit for following them and financially contributing to their existence. Also, Kanye probably ‘styled’ Kim for her appearance on the show… blind leading the blind because neither has an ounce of good taste.

    • KES4K

      UGH! Although…points for bravery for going out to dinner in essentially underwear and the world’s ugliest beach coverup. I never feel comfortable eating when wearing [the equivalent of] a bathing suit in public.

      I’m kind of sad for her. Not a single person pulled her aside to tell her her panties didn’t fit? She looks really awful in that get up which is from her friend Rachel Roy, who if I’m not much mistaken, has a business to run based on being able to make you look good? Baffling, and mean.

      have we regressed so far that someone is now put on the cover of Vogue because of her life partner, a man, who in turn MUST be on the cover with her? I think that is what upset me the most about this cover. That AW would never have put her on the cover before she dated Kanye. She needed a man to make her legitimate to AW. AW touts Rihanna and Lena D as these independent women and then follows up with a cover that screams you are who you are because of this man. oh and she needs to stop with the Kate Upton cover line EVERY issue. I work for a magazine and it is embarrassing.

      I noticed in the comments some observers think Grace Coddington was not involved in the decision for this cover. If you check the pictures of Kim in the D& G wedding gown, the woman kneeling at her feet adjusting her train is Grace. She also was photographed with Anna at a Kanye concert earlier this year. Both women are woefully out of touch if they think Kimye captures the zeitgeist for their readers, despite their lame attempt to be with it using hashtags.
