(Newser) – Kanye West's months-long campaign to get Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue has finally worked. Actually, both Kim and Kanye are featured on the April cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Baby North West even gets in on the action in the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot. But we have to take a bit of an issue with the hashtag Vogue chose to use on the cover: #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple. Sure, if you say so, Vogue. Kim's reaction on Twitter was predictably over-the-top: "This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath [sic]!"

In her editor's letter, Anna Wintour insists Kanye didn't force her into the cover decision, Hollywood Life reports. "The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true," she writes. "He did nothing of the sort." Rather, the couple is cover-worthy because "there’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason." But a Hollywood Life source begs to differ: "Anna would only do this if they were both on the cover. Kanye orchestrated the whole deal." And there are some pretty high-profile detractors of the cover: Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted, "Well......I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???"
