Last year, as Vogue India celebrated its 10th-anniversary they got supermodel and reality TV star Kendall Jenner to star on the cover shot which was shot in Jaipur by Mario Testino. Indian heat throb Sushant Singh Rajput accompanied her in the photoshoot of the 10th-anniversary issue as well. This did not go down to well with the fans and readers of the fashion magazine as people complained about why the publication didn't choose a cover star that better represented its readers. 

Now, in the March issue of Vogue, Kendall's sister the OG Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West struck a pose for the cover shot. The mother of three never fails to leave an impression and makes a statement in everything she does and she proved just that in the cover shot. The March cover of the magazine is photographed by Greg Swales and styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania.

"I have nothing against Kim Kardashian but @VOGUEIndia is really doing itself a disservice by continually neglecting to portrait [sic] brown women in their 'magazine' — you're perpetuating a detrimental cycle of underrepresentation. Stop whitewashing your own damn culture," tweeted Aditi Prasad under the handle @P_diti.

This Day That Year


These haters can not take other people, on earth looking fit, and beautiful, and enjoying life! Work on the person in the mirror, learn to love humanity, it will do wonder for your complexion!

Go ahead banned, showed the world the extremist mind set, bring it on the international stage, why dont' you! This is the only way, the open mind of educated and brilliant Indians will come out , in the end, by showing and welcoming diversity!

These haters, now they want to bann American artists, yet ,want to see Indians artists in HW !

If PC is on Hollywood covers she's working there and endorsing brands. How is Kim relevant in India? Didn't she once said Indian food is disgusting and how can people eat it

If the west has accepted Priyanka Chopra, Why cant you accept Kardashian? Not sure what it means to represent a certain culture....Open your minds please!!!!!!! Yo should provide some other reason to not accept Kardashian, but leave aside the culture or people that vogue india represents.

Looking good

whats the harm she does look good..
