After months of speculation, Kim Kardashian has finally landed her first Vogue cover. And she’s not alone. The reality star joins fiancé Kanye West for the magazine’s April issue shot by Annie Leibovitz.

Kardashian, 33, wears a gorgeous strapless Lanvin gown and poses with West’s arms wrapped around her for the shot. The rapper looks ready to head down the aisle as well in a navy suit. The coverline? #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple, which is hard to argue with considering the duo’s whirlwind relationship and presence in the fashion world.

North, 9 months, also joins her stylish parents for the shoot (as seen in the behind-the-scenes clip below) set to West’s “Bound 2” hit.

“Annie and Grace Coddington [Vogue Creative Director] we’re so impressed with how professional Kim was,” an industry insider tells PEOPLE. “They all laughed throughout the shoot and had so much fun.”

And the bride-to-be definitely got some serious wedding dress inspiration for her upcoming nuptials. “Kim tried tons of wedding gowns made for her by every designer,” the insider says. (Basically, it sounds like she had a Carrie Bradshaw Sex and the City moment. Remember that scene from the first movie?)

The new mom made sure to take in every moment of the love-filled family experience. “Kim is so grateful and loved shooting this with Kanye and North,” a Kardashian source adds.

She also shared her excitement with fans. “This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!” Kardashian captioned the cover photo Instagram.

Last year Kim landed the cover of CR Fashion Book posing for a dramatic spread shot by Chanel designer (and fashion Kaiser) Karl Lagerfeld and directed by Givenchy mastermind Riccardo Tisci. West has collaborated with French ready-to-wear line A.P.C. on a number of collections. And now the couple has this photo to frame.

Watch the BTS clip below. What do you think of Kimye’s joint cover? Sound off in the comments!

This Country officially sucks

I usually don’t post on KK articles as I think she is so overexposed and talentless. But I’m posting this time incase Anna Wintour reads these sites – you just lost a Vogue subscriber.

Wow, Vogue is really going downhill.

Abbie on

could care less about them as human beings, but that dress is beautiful and she looks beautiful in it.

Vogue is officially dead. Why not put Jenna Jameson on their next cover? They’re both Porn Stars.

Disappointed with Vogue

Kim’s behavior constantly frustrates because she is so immature and shallow but…I am thrilled for her that she got this cover, that the image is realistic and tasteful — she looks like her natural absolutely gorgeous self. It’s appropriate. Kim — take a lesson: there is no one more beautiful than you on this entire planet. You do not need to dye/inject/pad to be the beautiful being that you are (and we know how you really look). Congrats and love — you are engaged to a wonderfully creative, loving and very handsome/sexy man and you are so blessed with a beautiful child — just be real.

I used to think Vogue was a classy magazine! Not any more! Why would they put 2 people who are so self-promoting and only do things to benefit themselves on their cover?? Yuck!

Sendy on

She needs to thank Kanye…..she got the cover because of him!

Sacrè on

Unbelievable. Anna Wintour must have been high when she said yes to this. Or Kanye paid her off.
