On Monday (March 24), Kanye took to Twitter to simply state that “Dreams come true,” with a photo, shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, from the magazine spread showing him and his fiancée walking hand-in-hand along the Paris waterfront as they gaze longingly into each other’s eyes. Not only does the photo, which Kim tweeted was one of her favorites,” encompass a loving moment between the two, but it also shows off their impeccable style, with Kim wearing a white McQueen gown covered from head-to-toe in feathers and Kanye in leather pants, a black shirt and a long trench.

With the digital copy of the April issue available, some unreleased photos have been making the rounds, including a very complex photo of Leibovitz taking a photo of Kanye, who is taking an iPad photo of Kim, who is taking a selfie of her and daughter North West. So meta.
Vogue also released several official photos from the shoot, including one of Kimye looking into each other’s eyes as Kanye wraps his arm around his future wife as they prepare to kiss. The other is a family shot that puts the adorable North on full display as a shirtless Kanye holds his bare-bottom daughter across his chest as he is draped across Kim’s lap.
“I take pictures of her all the time and dress her up,” said Kim of Nori in the magazine. “I put Kanye’s big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, ’What up, Daddy?’ ”
While Kimye are over the moon about Vogue, fans have been divided over whether or not they deserved to land the famed fashion magazine’s cover.
Twitter user @MichaelsMelissa said she “lost all respect” for the magazine after seeing the cover, while @TaraIvy is waiting for Vogue to announce that it was only an “April Fool’s joke.”

However, others couldn’t be happier for Kim, including @StefanMeegan, who tweeted that “she wins” for landing the cover, while @drvnkinlovexo agreed with editor Anna Wintour, who defended putting the couple on the cover, saying that Kimye’s involvement in the fashion world justified the decision.
@yankeebabe22 Kim got the cover, she wins and there us not one thing you can do to change that ;-)
