The fashion magazine mogul, who was set to position Cyrus as the next fashion icon, decided to go in a different direction after the singer twerked her way to the headlines.

Anna Wintour wasn’t impressed by Miley Cyrus’s MTV VMAs performance. In fact, she thought it was quite ‘distasteful’ and decided to nix Cyrus from Vogue’s cover.
Miley Cyrus is out of Vogue.
The celeb’s crude twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards reportedly cost her the coveted cover spot of the Anna Wintour-edited fashion bible.
Wintour wanted to promote Cyrus, 20, as a new icon, and even had the once-wholesome singer photographed for the December issue, the Daily Mail reported.
But the ice-veined editrix changed her mind after seeing Cyrus’ overtly sexual routine in a latex bra and panties.

“Anna found the whole thing distasteful,” a source told the Mail. “She decided, based on Miley’s performance, to take the cover in a different direction.”
While Miley Cyrus continues to defend her tongue-pointing, twerking VMAs performance, others felt it compromised her image. Anna Wintour decided Cyrus was not the woman she wanted on the Vogue cover after all.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer turned heads when she joined Robin Thicke for a racy and bewildering performance at the VMAs in Brooklyn last month.
Cyrus repeatedly bent over and gyrated against Thicke, and at one point, stroked her crotch with an oversized foam finger.
“Me and Robin (Thicke) the whole time said, ‘You know, we’re about to make history right now,’” Cyrus said in an exclusive interview with MTV on Sept. 2.
Her provocative performance is also rumored to have sent shock waves into her personal life. Recent reports have said that Cyrus’ exhibition endangered her relationship with fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
But the rebellious Cyrus is far from blacklisted from the glossy pages. The former “Hannah Montana” star recently posed for a chic spread in Harper’s Bazaar’s fall fashion issue wearing various high-end couture outfits.
This isn’t the first time there has been drama surrounding Vogue and Cyrus. The twerk jerk said she was “embarrassed” over a 2009 shoot done by the photographer Annie Leibovitz. But the picture of Cyrus covered by a bedsheet with her back exposed is tame compared with her latest antics.
