Post-Vogue Cover, Fashion Folk Now Sucking Up to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West



Although Kanye West has been a man-about-fashion-town for the past few years, what with his ill-fated attempt to launch a design career, his recent appearance on the cover of Vogue, together with fiance Kim Kardashian, puts #THEWORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE in a different stratosphere: Fashion folks, now they bow.  

For example: WWD, the industry's paper of record, is already gearing up for the couple's wedding this summer. "Invitations have yet to be mailed out, but it’s not too early to start thinking of the perfect wedding gift." And so the trade publication reached out to a dozen fashion notables to ask, "What would they get the couple that, quite literally, has everything?" #LITERALLY. 

A few of our favorite responses:

  • Stéphane Rolland: A life-like carving of the couple in an 18k slab of gold.

  • Karl Lagerfeld: A 'Balloon Venus' sculpture by Jeff Koons, but not one of the two Lagerfeld was gifted by LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault.

  • Alber Elbaz: "I would make a whole collection of beautiful summer dresses for North, because I know how much they love her, how much she means to them and how precious she is."

  • Roberto Cavalli: Respect, friendship and love. "I consider Kim an independent woman — just the way I like women."

  • Chelsea Leyland: A matching pair of Kappa tracksuits.

  • Erin Fetherston: A copy of Emily Post's Etiquette. (Ouch!)

  • Jude Law: A mirror ball. 

  • Maison Martin Margiela: Anonymity.
