People has been pushed to defend its choice to have the bride alone on this week’s exclusive wedding cover. The Kim Kardashian wedding cover was just that… her standing alone; looking like there was someone missing, and an abundance of space in the frame that ought to have been filled by the groom, her second husband, Kris Humphries.
An editor from the magazine tried to defend its/ Kardashians/ momager Kris Jenner’s logic about why the groom serves no purpose and has no place on his own wedding day. He’s just there as a placeholder; he’s a necessary evil who takes up space in the wedding pictures because the bride’s not allowed to marry herself.
People Magazine is gathering scrutiny for the cover of their new issue that features Kim Kardashian standing alone in one of her three famous wedding gowns. The scrutiny is coming from the fact that another important piece of the Kardashian wedding puzzle is missing, notably her new husband Kris Humphries. Access Hollywood Live asked an editor for the magazine on Wednesday morning why Kim was the only person to grace the cover of People for the exclusive story on the Kardashian-Humphries wedding. One of the magazine’s editors, Jen Garcia replied, “It’s all about the bride.” She continued to defend the magazine’s position saying, “We sorted through thousands of pictures.” But added in the end, “It’s all about the bride. We wanted her. It’s her day, we wanted her on the cover.”
The magazine reportedly paid the couple $1.5 million for exclusive licensing fees and has 11 pages worth of material in the new issue that delves into all the details of the lavish wedding including the guests, the food, the presents, and the ambiance of the event. - via Christian Post.
Were what Garcia said true, the solo covers would have started with the engagement announcement. Kardashian should have been standing alone wearing her engagement ring on that People cover – but she and Humphries stood as a couple. It seems illogical, given her argument, to feature him on one cover and not the other… unless they’re defending a bride’s right to be vapid and narcissistic to her heart’s content on her wedding day?
“MEEEEEEEE! It’s all about MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”
