Kim and Kanye's American Vogue cover. Image source: dailymail.co.uk
One gets the feeling that this is allowing us an exclusive preview of the kind of wedding dress Kim may end up wearing for her upcoming wedding as she models a strapless meringue style dress on the front cover with Kanye nuzzling into her neck behind her.
This cover is not without controversy. For months, reports have suggested that Kanye was on a campaign to get his Mrs on Vogue and has spent the last year or so twisting US Vogue editor, Anna Wintour's arm. Well apparently her arm didn't need to be twisted, she could already forsee the great cover that America's biggest stars would make as an extract from her editor's letter reveals that Kanye never begged because she already saw the potential in the couple as cover stars.
There are many who are shocked at this cover, my Twitter timeline tells me this. But as a trainee magazine journalist I can see the logic in the decision to put Kimye on the cover, they're two Americans who have individually worked hard for their success and have battled through the media storms they've faced and come out the other side.
Putting them on the cover is a smart business move for Wintour, she knows exactly what she's doing. This cover will get talked about, whether it's in a good or a bad way and that's all a magazine editor can hope for, that their cover generates a buzz.
Yes, there will be some that stick up their noses at this cover but I don't see what's wrong with it. It's refreshing to have a curvy, reality star on the front cover rather than the same old lanky 'model-actress'. Every now and then magazine covers need a bit of diversity and this is exactly what this cover is, different.
This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even… http://instagram.com/p/lz_TfSuSwa/
