For many years, Kim Kardashian has dreamt and lobbied to appear on the cover of the prestigious VOGUE magazine—but she has been unsuccessful until today…

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have covered the April Edition of America VOGUE to the shock of many—especially VOGUE subscribers.

When the cover surfaced online, many asked, why, how and who allowed this?  What must have pushed Anna Wintou to change her position on Kim Kardashian?

Expressing her excitement, Kim tweeted;

This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!

Anna Wintou has decided to explain why Kim and Kanye are on thee cover and she wrote;

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.

—Anna Wintour
