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!

Honestly, Anna Wintour used to never give Kim attention. How much was she paid to do this?

Kim, learn to spell it’s “breathe”! Not a fan of these two but great photos. I’m very disappointed with Vogue though!!!

Not a Fan on

Just when I was thinking of getting a subscription to Vogue, I think not. Having West and Kardashian on the cover turns Vogue into a tabloid.

Looks like Vogue decided the controversy that it would cause by putting them on the cover would be worth the publicity.

Such a shame Vogue has strayed from their core beliefs.

Curious to see what the subscription fall out will be. I guess they were ready to gamble.

It is truly nauseating to see this individual celebrated in a magazine that has epitomized true beauty and class. Kim Kardashian is a vacuous, abhorrent “reality star” with no talent, no education and absolutely no class. Like so many women, I have been a loyal reader of Vogue since my early teens, and it was with a heavy heart I cancelled my subscription upon seeing this photo. I’ll never purchase another issue, nor look at the magazine the same way again. I hope Anna Wintour is pleased with her decision to justify Kardashian’s existence in this way, because to the millions of REAL, hard working, talented, genuinely beautiful souls who used to worship her tome, this is an unforgivable sin, and a stain on Vogue’s history forever.

Wonder how much of this picture has been airbrushed?
So disappointed with Vogue.

I must be looking at a different cover from those saying Kim looks beautiful. I think she looks very masculine and uncomfortable. The dress she is wearing is not flattering and does not fit her boobs properly. I normally think Kim is a very pretty girl…well before she had all that plastic surgery…but this is not her best photo.
