Anna Wintour Just Gave Kimye The Most Backhanded Compliment

Kim Kardashian's spread in Paper magazine was her most recent attempt to #BreakTheInternet, but her April Vogue cover with husband Kanye West did some serious damage, too. While some people weren't happy with the decision to put Kimye on the prestigious cover, Vogue's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, defended her decision yet again in a talk at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Monday.

"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," Wintour said.

Wintour added that there might be another Kardashian cover in the future, saying, "I hope another Kim Kardashian comes along this year!"

This isn't the first time Wintour has spoken out about her Kimye choice. The venerable fashion icon released a statement to Us Weekly to slam the rumors that Mr. and Mrs. West "begged" her to be on the cover.

"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," Wintour said in March. "You may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancee on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn't true."
