KANYE WEST recently had a power lunch at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge with Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. However, it was Anna that was grilled as Kanye demanded to know why Girls star Lena Dunham was worthy of being on the cover of Vogue, while KIM KARDASHIAN never had the honor. Kanye supposedly told Anna that Kim is "just as talented as Lena, if not more so." Kanye knows that it's always been Kim's dream to be on the cover of Vogue and he's doing everything he can to make it happen. However, sources say, "Anna is no fan of Kim or any reality star appearing in the pages of the magazine." Although, word has it that Anna is considering putting Kim on the cover of the French or Italian editions of the magazine just to get Kanye off her back.
