Kim Kardashian thinks Kanye West looks ''so sexy'' on the cover of GQ magazine.

The reality TV star's rapper husband graces the cover of the men's fashion and lifestyle magazine's August edition for Australia, wearing a beige jacket and a white T-shirt with a gold chain around his neck and bearing a quizzical look on his face.

Kim posted a picture of the cover on Instagram and wrote alongside it: ''So sexy! My husband on the cover of GQ shot by Patrick Demarchelier!!! (sic)''

Kanye will no doubt be pleased with landing the cover, as he has long been a fashionista, completing an internship at Italian fashion brand Fendi in 2009, designing his own Nike Air Yeezy II line of trainers and releasing a clothing collection with French brand A.P.C.

However, his relationship with the industry has at times been rocky, and he has previously said his track 'I Am A God' was a direct reaction to being invited to a show at Paris Fashion Week in 2012, but only on the condition he wouldn't appear at any other fashion shows that week.

He said: ''So the next day I went to the studio with Daft Punk, and I wrote 'I Am a God'. Because it's like, 'Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can't go. Man, I'm the number one living and breathing rock star.

''I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix. You can't say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can't come to your show!

''To even think they could tell me where I could and couldn't go is just ludicrous. It's blasphemous - to rock 'n' roll, and to music.''
