The reality star and her soon-to-be hubby Kanye West are gracing April’s US Vogue issue, and the overall reaction on social media has been nothing but shock.
The reason why everyone is stunned by Kim landing the cover is down to the fact that Anna Wintour was very much against having reality stars, such as Kim, get on the front cover of their highly-respect magazine.
Anna allegedly called it classless for a reality star to be on the cover and would never allow them to attend her MET Gala parties; hence why Kim Kardashian and her family were never invited (unless they showed up with Kanye West who is known to be Wintour’s BFF).
Kanye has a lot of friends in the fashion industry, including Anna, and we did tell you a couple of months ago that he had been reaching out to her in hopes that she could reconsider not allowing Kim grace the cover of her magazine.
In the end Anna Wintour gave in, knowing that if Kanye wasn’t going to get his way, he would’ve probably thrown another tantrum and seeing that the two have been friends for years, maybe she wouldn’t want to jeopardize a longtime friendship over another woman.
Once the issue goes on sale, it’ll be officially the first time a reality star has landed herself the cover of US Vogue, which begs the question… will the magazine still be as respected in the industry and by fans as it has been throughout the years?
Kim tweeted on her official page: “This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!”
Having Kim on the cover is going to open a lot of doors for reality stars to do the same, don’t you think? Or maybe this was just a one time thing?
You can’t deny that the magazine cover is stunning. The photoshoot included shots in a private jet, Kim in a wedding dress and some snaps of the two with their daughter, Ignori.
