Kim K's Vogue India cover doesn't impress social media much, faces major backlash
Last year, it was Kendall Jenner - this time it's Kim. Both sisters have faced backlash for being on the cover fo this magazine.
Kim Kardashian's probably been on every big magazine cover that you can think of but this time it has backfired. Most recently, she was on the cover for Vogue India, sizzling in a black satin slip dress, with a plunging neckline (naturally) and a thigh-high slit (not surprising). Her blonde lob sat perfectly in tousled beach babe waves and her makeup palette was kept neutral by her ever favorite celeb MUA Mario.
However, there appears to be nothing scandalous about the cover photo or the one inside, where Kim looks stunning, donning Indian designer Anita Dongre's lehenga - a traditional style Indian skirt.
As soon as the photos were up on Twitter, fans were quick to express disappointment. Some of them felt that Kim K did not deserve to be on the cover.
They felt that it was just a stupid choice - especially when there were successful American women who also had an Indian connection. Some of them were just mad that Kim gets all the spotlight - like she wasn't getting it enough already. There were, however, fans who defended the cover - saying that it was okay to feature her and it did not make them value brown women any less.
They put brown women on the cover all the time...........they get an international star on the cover once in a blue moon— serenity (@adorelily) February 27, 2018
people who are hating on @VOGUEIndia for their select international cover stars every once in a while really don’t understand how magazines work— Yusra Siddiqui (@thatgirlyusra) February 27, 2018
The last time someone from the Kardashian Jenner clan was featured in the magazine - things did not go down well either. Kendall Jenner, posed for the magazine in May last year and faced similar criticism.
No shade on the Kardashians.. but like y’all seriously couldn’t find an INDIAN for the cover? First Kendall & now Kim? 🙄 @VOGUEIndia— Jenny (@jennymarie_93) February 27, 2018
It was Vogue India's 10th-anniversary edition, shot by the famous Mario Testino.
Called 'Indian Affair', the cover and her poses were criticized (which gave birth to some funny memes) the fact that she was featured, instead of the very successful Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone, both of who have Hollywood success as well as Indian roots, did not go down well.
