Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have scored the cover of Vogue. The #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple, who is expected to wed this summer, gives the magazine a glimpse into their lavish lifestyle for the April 2014 issue.
In the photos shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Kim dons a white gown as Kanye wraps his arms around his gorgeous bride-to-be. The glamorous duo holds hands as they walk down a deserted highway and makes love on their black Lamborghini and aboard a private jet.
Their adorable nine-month-old daughter North also joins her fashionable parents for a family portrait.
“This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!” tweeted Kim, while Kanye added, “#TRILL Thank you @voguemagazine.”
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has also released a statement addressing the cover chatter.

“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.”
