Did Anna Wintour Just Diss Kim Kardashian and Kanye West?

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour deviated from the high-fashion magazine's tradition when she decided to put Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover.

Of course, the photos got a ton of attention, but it didn't have anything to do with the fashion, it was because the mag usually sticks strictly to fashion and doesn't really tie themselves up with celeb stuff.

When asked about the controversial decision to put KimYe on the cover, Anna Wintour had a sort of interesting response that bordered on a KimYe complidiss.

"I see the role of Vogue to reflect what's going on in the culture," she told former CNN journalist Alina Cho (via Fashionista) at an event on Monday night. "The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too."

"Now she's part of the establishment," she continued. "I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It's very important that people do talk about us."

Wait, so Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren't "deeply tasteful"?!

The fashion editor also commented on Kim's younger sis Kendall Jenner's new role as the new face of Estee Lauder:

"What a fantastic decision that was! They have a wonderful brand that's very traditionally American, and they decided they want to shake it up and reach a different audience. Now and again one has to do things like that. I think it's part of the excitement and part of being a journalist. I hope another Kim Kardashian comes along this year!"

That's nice and everything, but we're still hung up on the KimYe quote! Do you guys think she was dissing the #Worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple?
