Kim Kardashian can now scratch off another item on her bucket list: appearing solo on the cover of Vogue (Australia, that is).

Yesterday the reality TV star/app goddess/mother of the world’s cutest direction  uploaded this photo to her Instagram account:

Kim captioned the picture, “Here’s the 1st look of my February cover with Australian Vogue out Monday!!!!”

While I’m not usually a fan of exclamation marks (and certainly not four of them in a row), I’d say this photo is gorgeous enough to warrant their use and abuse. Dare I say it, but this might be Kim’s best magazine cover yet!!!!

Seriously, this cover is inspiring some Elizabeth Barrett Browning-level love from me. How do I love thee, Kim Kardashian’s Australian Vogue cover? Let me count the ways:

1. I love that Kim is wearing all white here. For someone who typically rocks #AllBlackAllDay, the girl looks damn good in light colors. Kim’s dress is from Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection, and let it be known to all of the Internet that I’m now on the hunt for a pleated and sheer maxi-skirt to wear all summer long.

2. I love the way Kim’s hair is blowing in the sea breeze.

3. I love, love, love Kim’s “no-makeup” makeup look. Kudos to the artist who worked his or her magic here, because I imagine it was hard to convince Kim to separate from her beloved bronzer, contouring, and extra-long lashes. I’m starting to wish I could take back my New Year’s resolution to start wearing bold lipstick, because this cover has totally inspired me to adopt a more zen approach to beauty. Anyone have any tips for achieving the perfect “no-makeup” makeup look?

Kim shared another photo from the shoot, this one of her in a black one-piece bathing suit:

This shot is giving me major Baywatch vibes (and I mean that in the best way possible). Also, that bathing suit is awesome. Now that Vogue is kinda-sorta-maybe warming up to us big girls, do you think there’s a chance I could get one in my size?

So what do you think of Kim’s cover? Does it inspire you to write sonnets or are you sick to death of the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutWoman? Let’s chat in the comments below!
