(KBCW) – Jared Padalecki had some choice words for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Vogue cover. The Supernatural star tweeted his distaste for the fashion magazine’s choice for their cover.
Not that I'm a Vogue reader, but, really?? Kim Kardashian? I thought it was supposed to be a magazine about class and style???—

Padalecki joins actress Sarah Michelle Geller of KPIX 5/CBS’ “The Crazy Ones” and supermodel Naomi Cambell for their questioning of Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s decision on placing the couple.
Geller tweeted her distaste for the cover by saying:
Well……I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???—

When asked about the Vogue cover during an Australian morning television show, Naomi Cambell said “I do not want to comment…” all the while laughing. Cambell went on to say “Because I’m a fashion model and I’ve been working for 28 years, and when you get a Vogue cover, it’s a build in your career. It’s a stepping-stone to achieve that. And I’m a fashion model, what more can I say?”
In a statement last week, Anna Wintour addressed her decision by saying “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. 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,” she added. “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.”
