Well, it's official: Kim Kardashian has landed on the cover of Vogue.
For those not keeping up with all things Kardashian, she has been on the hunt for Vogue's stamp of approval for some time, as has her fiance, Kanye West.
Vogue was seemingly uninterested, at least in Kardashian: Editors even crudely cut her out of a photo they took of her and West at the Met Gala last year, a move seen as the magazine trying to distance itself from the reality star.
West pushed back in public, and did it often. "There's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue," he told Ryan Seacrest late last year. "She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her like every day."
The result of those efforts: West and Kardashian appear in a bridal embrace on the April cover, with Kardashian's 15-carat diamond engagement ring in full view. Inside are family photos of the pair and their daughter, North West, taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Why the change of heart? The answer is in plain view on the magazine's cover. Under the embrace are the hashtagged words: #WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE. (Social media seems to be a theme of the April issue, with a promised feature on 'selfie-made' model-of-the-moment Kate Upton.)
"This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath (sic)!" tweeted Kardashian on Friday.
A video accompanies the cover release (conveniently set to West's Bound 2), and we get to check the bride-to-be out in two different wedding dresses (one, by Lanvin, pictured, and one feathered), plus see several cute shots of baby North.
