Kim Kardashian has finally achieved her high fashion dream: appearing on the cover of Vogue.

The 32-year-old reality star appears on the front of the American high-fashion magazine's April 2014 edition in a strapless Lanvin wedding dress, and her fiancé Kanye West stands behind her with his arms wrapped around her waist.

The TV personality tweeted after the cover was released on Friday, saying, "This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath!' [sic]".

However, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar took to Twitter share her disappointment over editor Anna Wintour's cover selection.

"Well......I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???" she wrote.

Kim's best friend Jonathan Cheban stepped up in Kim's defence shortly after, writing Sarah a retaliatory message.

"Do u matter?" he mused while retweeting what the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star said.

It was rumoured Kanye had been pleading with his friend Anna to place his Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star fiancee on the cover of Vogue for several months.

Speculation was rife the editor-and-chief resisted the Yeezus musician's request, but in a statement 64-year-old Anna claimed she didn't hesitate to feature the couple.

"As for the cover, 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 fiancee on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort," she wrote.

"The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn't true."

 

She went on to explain why the couple earned their spot on the publication's cover.

"Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it," Anna said.

MORE WEDDING DETAILS

Meanwhile, Beyoncé Knowles has reportedly said that "under no circumstances" will she be filmed at Kanye West's wedding.

The hip-hop artist is marrying reality TV star Kim Kardashian in Paris on May 24. There are varied reports about whether the nuptials will be caught on camera for Kim's show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. While Kim is generally happy to be filmed, Kanye is known to be more private - although he did allow his proposal to be shot for the series.

Kanye is close friends with Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé, who is apparently unhappy with the idea of appearing on the small screen show.

"[She has said that] under no circumstances will she be a part of any filming on the wedding day if it's for Kim's reality show," an insider claimed to RadarOnline.

"Jay and Beyoncé's wedding was shrouded in secrecy and extreme lengths were made to make sure their wedding was an intimate affair for friends and family, only. This will be the complete opposite."

Jay and Kanye have been close for years and even released a joint album called Watch the Throne in 2011, which they promoted on tour together.

It's been claimed Kanye and Kim are planning to ask their wedding guests to sign no-disclosure agreements and won't allow cell phones during the nuptials. Their superstar-couple pals will likely not be included in that though.
The details of the nuptials are not known at the moment, although Kim has previously hinted the wedding will be far from the flashy day many are expecting.

"We're having a super, super small, intimate wedding," she explained. "As we go along, we're realising we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking."

Kim tied the knot with Kris Humphries in front of 500 people in 2011. The marriage featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and was criticised, as the big day cost millions, with Kim filing for divorce after 72 days.
