Miss Vogue which is considered to be Vogue magazine’s younger sister was created to talk directly to young women who love fashion and beauty, while still embodying the authoritative spirit of its parent publication. It appears to be focused on attracting the trendy and chic 20 something year olds by highlighting some of their favorite models and affordable ready to wear high fashions.

In the 15th Issue of Miss Vogue Australia, Sudanese Model, Ajak Deng shares a bit of insight on her career in modeling, favorite designers to work with and some other fun “getting to know you questions” about where she shops and eats. | Read more from that interview here.

Just last month we highlighted fashions’ new “it girl” Kendell Jenner and we even made reference to the potential of her making the cover of Vogue magazine before her eldest sister, Kim Kardashian. Well this past Friday, Kim and her fiancé Kanye West set the record straight and appeared front and center on Vogue Magazine’s April Issue, beating Kendell to the cover.

In anticipation of their up and coming wedding, KimYe pulled together an exquisite shoot for Vogue magazine; which turned out to be a lovely family affair. They both posed in designer garments, serving up an entire plate of sensuality; all while gushing over their beautiful daughter, North West.

Covered in Controversy:

Now you know it just simply wouldn’t be Kim and Kanye without a bit of controversy. Many people have been excited for the pairs Vogue Cover but a few “fashion connoisseurs” have been raving and ranting about this unexpected pick. Fashion crazed Vogue fans and a few celebs have found it rather odd that the couple would be chosen to cover Vogue magazine. Many have even chastised the couple via social networks claiming that “they bought their way onto the cover”. 

However you see it, they are currently the most talked about couple when it relates to being on top of the fashion game. Personally, I think this was a strategic move by Anna Wintour and well played I might add. Whether people like it or not everyone is tuned in and focused on Kim, Kanye and more importantly, Vogue Magazine.

What are your thought? Chime in below.

Just last week Kendell Jenner (and her lady lumps) lite up the runway causing quite the stir at Marc Jacob’s FW’14 New York Fashion Week show.

Not only is Kendell blazing runways for top designers, she’s also mingling with the who’s who of the Fashion Industry. On Sunday, February 16th Kendall rubbed shoulders with the legendary Anna Wintour as she sat in the front row at the Topshop Unique show for London Fashion Week.

One of her most notable appearances however has been her featured spread in Vogue magazine! Yes, she has arrived! Modeling a variety of distinguished designer collections straight from the runway, she has wasted no time in marking her territory. Watch out! It appears little Miss Kendell is planning a top model take over. There has even been speculation buzzing that as one of fashion’s newest “it girls” she is more likely to snag a Vogue cover before her eldest sister, Kim Kardashian. We’ll have to wait and see if this happens but in the meantime enjoy a few of our favorite looks from the Vogue feature below.
