Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are the new cover stars of Vogue Magazine.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are the new cover stars of Vogue Magazine, featuring in a new shoot in which the couple appear in full wedding gear. The new cover shows the pair in an intimate with Kim in a white strapless Lanvin wedding gown with only one piece of jewellery: her Lorraine Schwartz designed 15-carat diamond engagement ring.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Have Shared Their First Vogue Cover.
"This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath [sic]!" Kim tweeted earlier today when the snap was released on Vogue's website. Kim and Kanye also appear within the April issue under the headline "Kim & Kanye Their fashionable life and surreal times. #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple," referencing their social media dominance.
Behind the scenes footage on Vogue's website shows Kim cradling their eight month old baby daughter North as Kanye looks on adoringly as well as shots of the reality TV star wearing a white feathered Alexander McQueen wedding dress whilst in a private jet.
There was a pretty strong rumour that West had hounded Vogue Magazine to put him and his fiancée on the cover of the fashion monthly and had paid a lot of money for the privilege. However, in her editor's letter, Anna Wintour addresses the rumours directly and puts them to bed: ""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," writes the 64-year-old Editor In Chief.
Kim Described Their Cover Shoot As "A Dream Come True."
"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," she added. "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," Wintour wrote.
"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?)"
The Couple Are Busily Planning For Their Wedding, Which Will Be Held In Paris.
The rumours stemmed from West's interview with Ryan Seacrest last year in which he argued that Kim deserved to be on the magazine's cover. "There's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue," he said in October 2013. "She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday [...] and collectively we're the most influential with clothing," he added. Looks like those magic fairies at Vogue heeded his wish!
