Kim Kardashian and Kanye Land the April Cover of Vogue

Well, it finally happened....and we all know it was in due time.
The Bound 2 couple have some people pretty peeved that Anna Wintour okayed both Kanye and Kim for the April cover of Vogue.
Rumors for the past year swirled that Wintour did not want anything to do with Kardashian, but supposedly Kanye's campaign to have his baby-mama may have changed things.
However, Wintour put those rumors to bed with the following letter from the editor:

“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 fiancĂ©e 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.”

Kanye and Kim look amazing in the Annie Leibovitz shoot and the behind-the-scenes video is adorable as it shows baby North West looking so adorable.
On twitter Kardashian gushed that this was a "dream come true", while others were not so excited. *ahem Sarah Michelle Gellar*

Yeezy seems like Kardashian's Fairy Godfather, making her wildest dreams a reality.

However Kardashian's BFF Jonathan Cheban quickly stepped in to defend Kim.

Regular Vogue subscribers were pretty upset at the move as well claiming that others deserved it more like Lupita Nyong'o to name a few. Interesting how Kanye has helped step up Kim's game in higher circles. Reminds me of Pretty Woman.
