Vogue magazine is facing major backlash from readers after putting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in a bridal portrait on its April cover.

The newest cover of the fashion Bible features the newly engaged couple in a bride-and-groom-esque portrait shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.



But many loyal readers feel the selection of the reality starlet and her rapper fiancé tarnishes Vogue's classy brand.

"I have always purchased Vogue, ever since I was a teenager and I felt like I could always rely on Vogue to inspire me and educate on a number of levels," one commenter vented on the Vogue website. "I don’t buy tabloids for a reason because I don’t look up to or find inspiration in people with no talent and even less morals. Wow, RIP Vogue. The last bastion of style has fallen today. I’ll miss you."

"I would like to join those who are extremely disappointed Vogue would lower its standards to put this abhorrent pseudo-celebrity on the cover," someone else posted. "You're not US Weekly."

Others, including actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, vented their frustrations about the Vogue cover on Twitter.







Anna Wintour, Vogue's notoriously ruthless editor-in-chief, defended her decision to put Kim and Kanye on the cover in the issue's editor's letter.

"Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it," she wrote, according to CBS News. "I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)"

"As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort," she continued. "The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn't true."
