James Franco - James Franco and Seth Rogen spoof Kim Kardashian VOGUE cover

James Franco and Seth Rogen have spoofed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's VOGUE cover.

The actors poked fun of the US magazine's controversial new cover, which was unveiled yesterday (21.03.14) to mass uproar from the fashion world, by photoshopping their heads onto the couple's body in a mock-up version of the April issue's defining image.

The fashion bible's cover - which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz - shows reality star Kim looking demure in a strapless Lanvin wedding gown as Kanye wraps his arms around his bride-to-be, the concept a nod to their upcoming nuptials in Paris this May.

James posted his digitally-altered handiwork on Instagram, jokingly adding: ''Seth! Love you, dog!''

His fans' response was overwhelmingly positive, with one enthusing, ''Omg what a beautiful couple!!!'', and another noting, ''A much better cover photo''.

This isn't the first time renowned jokers Seth and James have mocked Kanye and Kim. Last November, they filmed a spoof of Kanye's 'Bound 2' video, which sees the comedians imitating the cringe-inducing video by smooching shirtless on the back of a motorbike.

Meanwhile, the Muppets have also joined in on the act, with puppet power couple Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy recreating Kimye's VOGUE cover.

Sharing the image on Facebook, Miss Piggy said: ''Kermie and Moi are honored to be featured on the cover of Vague as the #UniversesMostTalkedAboutCouple!! (Are you surprised, though?)''

VOGUE Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour - who previously declared Kim would appear in the magazine ''over her dead body'' - has defended her cover star choice in the Editor's letter of April's Shape issue, explaining that she admires Kim's ''strength of character.''

She added that the magazines prides itself on ''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.''
