Finally. Kim Kardashian’s dream of being on the cover of Vogue has come true. And contrary to rumours that Kanye had much to do with it, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Anna Wintour says, “The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
“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,” the publishing icon said. “He did nothing of the sort.”
“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,” she added, complimenting the brunette beauty.
Kim, 33, stuns in a white Lavin gown resembling a wedding dress just ahead of the couple’s upcoming nuptials slated for this May in Paris, France. Kanye dons a Saint Laurent blazer.
The gorgeous shots were taken by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz.”This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! OMGGGGGG!!! I can’t even,” Kardashian tweeted Friday along with a pic of the magazine.”#TRILL Thank you @voguemagazine,” West wrote to his followers.9-month-old baby North West even makes an adorable cameo appearance with her parents.Kim wears two elegant white gowns in the issue that named her and the 36-year-old rapper the “#WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE.”Watch the behind-the-scenes video here:

A large printed scarf over both shoulders can double up as a cape.
Wearing one printed top or bottom is easy. Usually, we just match it with a solid separate. But how do you mix and match prints that clash? What is the key to getting the right mix? Keep these in mind:
Pick a common colour that you can match – For example, a check skirt and check top might both have blue in it. Blue is the common colour that gels the pieces into a look.
Pick a common pattern that you can match – For example, florals and ferns can match together as they are both under the nature category. Or checks and plaid can match easily too.
But don’t take our word for it. Check out how these style bloggers do it. And if you feel like getting the look, you can shop them by clicking on the outfits. Enjoy!
