Amp up this April cause’ Kim and Kanye are on the cover!

Vogue Magazine has launched 2014’s April issue, with 33-year old reality star, Kim Kardashian and fiancé, Kanye West courting centre stage.
“There’s no way that Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue,” West said during an on-air interview with Ryan Secrest, this past Fall. “She’s like the most intriguing woman right now.”

After going viral, West’s statement received a decent amount of backlash and eye rolls surrounding his best efforts to land Kim on the cover. According to the public, it seemed to be desperate.

Alongside Kanye, leading lady and editor in chief of Vogue Magazine, Ms. Anna Wintour, was poked at and prodded by many, including an indirect Tweet from Sarah Michelle Gellar. “Well … I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription, who’s with me?” The actress took to Twitter.

Wintour made a public declaration defending her choice to place Kim and Kanye on the cover, in the editor’s letter of Aprils issue. “Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of the 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.”
The editor in chief, 64, went on to write, “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 a K?) She joked.

Perhaps it’s fitting that the couple is officially debuting their life together throughout the spread of Vogue’s first Spring issue of 2014.
It’s no secret that Kardashian has undergone numerous life changes over this past year, which has seemingly lead up to a tell-tale, new beginning for the ‘about-to-be,’ Kardashian-West’s.
