Of all the things we did not expect to happen this year, one of the most outlandish prospects was that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian would ever appear on the cover of Vogue. While Anna Wintour seemed to have finally forgiven Kim for being, well, Kim, the ideas of Kimye popping up on the biggest fashion magazine in the entire world was just too strange for us to believe. Even amid the rumors, we just didn’t think it could go down. And yet…it has happened.
Yes, our minds have been blown indeed. because this was genuinely something we didn’t see coming.
Okay, so here’s a rundown on what this cover holds:
- Kim and Kanye holding one another. Kanye is unconcerned with the camera; his life is lived in cameras, he DGAF about them anymore. Kim’s life force comes from cameras, so she naturally has to gaze into this one.
- Kim is wearing a wedding dress. A very nice wedding dress, in fact, but I strongly doubt it will be the wedding dress she wears to their actual wedding. That is for Kim’s Princess Wedding 2: The Kimyetion.
- Vogue claims they are the “#worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple,” which feels inaccurate considering the existence of Beyonce and Jay Z. One can only guess that Kanye forced them to put this on the cover in retaliation for the aforementioned couple rejecting their wedding invites.
Like I said: mind…blown. Perhaps it is only a matter of time before Wintour tosses her head back, lets out a wild cackle and shouts, “APRIL FOOL’S!” If that were to happen, somebody better GIF it as fast as possible because this will be the single greatest prank in fashion history.
