Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover Vogue Magazine

Rucuss staffMarch 22, 2014

Kim Kardashian has finally landed on the cover of Vogue.

And it wasn’t easy. Kim’s mother Kris Jenner tried to get her daughter on the cover for years. Her fiance Kanye West even started lobbying for her last year. But it appeared that Vogue editor Anna Wintour wasn’t having it. The Vogue staff would even cut Kim out of Kanye’s MET ball photos.

But Wintour has had a changed of heart about the reality star. Kim is featured on the cover of the April 2014 issue with Kanye West. Their daughter North is also featured in the magazine.

Vogue labels the couple the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple. In the photos shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Kim wears a white gown as Kanye wraps his arms around his bride-to-be.

Their adorable nine-month-old daughter North also joins her fashionable parents for a family portrait.

Kim tweeted, “This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!” Kanye tweeted, “#TRILL Thank you @voguemagazine.”

Wintour also released a statement addressing why she put the power couple on the cover. Wintour said:

“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. 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.

There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
