UPDATE: First it was James Franco and Seth Rogan, then it was Kermot and Miss Piggy. Now Kim's sisters are in on the act! Kylie and Kendall clearly couldn't help themselves, photoshopping in their heads where Kim and Kanye's should be respectively. The girls tweeted an apologetic message that read "sorry Kim" along with the revamped pic. Whaddya reckon? Best yet?
22 March 2014: The Best Reactions To The Kimye US Vogue Cover

It was a dream come true for her ('This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath!' Kim tweeted) and the news the world has been waiting for. And yesterday it finally happened.
The #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on the cover of April's US Vogue. With Kim in a dramatic white wedding dress and Kanye stood behind her with his arms wrapped around her waist, it does seem like a fairy tale or at least a dream for them, and it has already prompted speculation that the wedding could be sooner than we think.
But barely 12 hours after the announcement there's been a bit of a Twitter backlash. Sarah Michelle Gellar took to Twitter to say she's cancelling her Vogue subscription - yikes - while Bryan Boy tweeted, 'I'm gonna pretend I didn't see the cover of April 2014 issue of US Vogue.' Oh dear.

So the Kimye US Vogue cover controversy: exactly what a possibly waning print mag needs. A seismic shift in snobbery too. Maybe.— grace woodward (@gracewoodward) March 22, 2014
Anna Wintour herself has addressed the issue in her editor's letter. '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,' she wrote. And with the rumour mill in full swing that model Kate Upton was dropped for the cover in favour of Kim and Kanye, we don't see this one simmering down anytime soon.
