It’s official: Kanye West and Kim Karadashian are the #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple.
Don’t take our word for it: Vogue, the bible of all things Hollywood and culture, says so.
That’s right, months after Kanye was telling anyone who would listen that Kim deserved to be on the cover of Vogue (one reason being “She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday”), and the blogosphere was buzzing with rumors that Anna Wintour had said thanks but no thanks: Here they are, in all their hashtagged glory.
And look who’s making her video debut? Their baby daughter, nine-month-old North West, in the accompanying music video that was published online along with the cover. With sounds of Kanye’s “Yeezus” track “Bound 2” in the background, the Vogue clip shows the Annie Leibowitz photo shoot in full detail.
Scenes include: Kim and Kanye — her in a wedding dress, him in a long black coat — on an abandoned desert highway. Kim cuddling with adorable North. Kim sprawled against a car, Kanye leaning in toward her. Kanye cuddling with North on a private jet. A formal family portrait where Kim shows off her enormous diamond engagement ring.
Vogue hasn’t posted the article yet (it will appear in the April issue), but we’re only imagining what that will bring. Of course, within minutes of the cover being released, #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple had already become a meme:

Kim and Kanye still seem psyched.
Kanye went more low-key: “#TRILL,” he tweeted. “Thank you @voguemagazine.”
