It's been a long journey to get there, though.


This achievement is basically Kim's Everest.


First obstacle: Remember that infamous ban Vogue editor Anna Wintour placed on Kim, forbidding her from attending the 2012 Met Gala?

According to rumors then, Anna wouldn’t even let Kim purchase a $25,000 ticket to attend.


But her relationship with Kanye must’ve swayed the fashion magnate.

After all, Kim’s style has definitely changed since they started dating.

Then there was that lavish engagement.



Fast forward a year later and what do you know? Kim’s allowed to attend the Met Gala.

And she wore this.


But even while on supposedly better terms, Kim was cropped out of the Met Gala gallery.


Never forget.


Hiccup aside, Kanye continued to court Anna.

In January of this year, Kanye took Anna to lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge.


And this is the result.

A Kimye Vogue cover. It finally happened. The couple tweeted the news this morning.




A true modern-day fairy tale come up.
