She’s beyond thrilled at this great achievement as she calls it a dream come true. The TV reality star recounted how she admired and longed to be featured alone on the cover page of the illustrious brand.

She thanked everyone including Editor in chief of Vogue magazine Anna Wintour for her support, the glam team, Jonathan vameper and her super husband Kanye West, for believing in her dream making it a reality.

I’ve dreamed of this moment for so long, many said it would never come. Words cannot begin to express how much of an honor it is to have my first solo US cover of @VogueMagazine. I remember as a little girl flipping through my mom’s subscription each month and dreaming of one day gracing the cover of this iconic magazine. Thank you to the incredible Anna Wintour for your support as always, it means the world to me. @Tonnegood, @Mikaeljansson and the glam team were an absolute dream to work with. I’m so incredibly grateful to writer @Jonathanvanmeter for illustrating a glimpse into my life in a way that I don’t think has ever been done – from juggling family, my businesses and pursuing a law degree with such care and seriousness. Special thank you to my husband Kanye for speaking into existence that one day I would grace the cover of Vogue when everyone told me to be “more realistic.” #dreamsdocometrue #speakitintoexistence #voguemagazine Photographer: Mikael Jansson @mikaeljansson Stylist: Tonne Goodman @tonnegood Makeup: Hannah Murray @hannah_murray1 Hair headpieces: Shay Ashual @shayashual Cover Look: Chanel top @chanelofficial; Irene Neuwirth necklace @ireneneuwirth.

Wondering why Vogue magazine is second to none in the fashion industry:
Established in the late 1800s, Vogue has such an illustrious and colourful history. it is in fact an institution in the world of fashion.
Condé Montrose Nast, the founder of Condé Nast Publications, bought Vogue in 1909 and transformed it into a women’s fashion magazine focused on beauty, composure, and etiquette. Vogue soon became known for its distinctive photographs and high editorial quality.
Both the magazine and it’s Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, have an incredible amount of power in the world of fashion and fashion design, and are said to be able to make or break a designer (ever watched The Devil Wears Prada?). Anna Wintour in particular has played an extremely significant role in the evolution of Vogue around the globe in the last 30 years.
This level of influence mean that Vogue has been in a position to explore some powerful partnerships in the past (Google Glass 2013). It has also ventured into economics (features and events after the Great Recession), and explored political and social issues in its features and editorials.
The magazine has continually been able to adapt to an evolving world. Examples include articles about sexuality during the height of feminism in the 1960s, the creation of Teen Vogue, the Vogue channel (via its website), books, and Voguepedia, which chronicles the history of fashion and more since the late 1980s.
Vogue publishes approximately 20 editions around the world, which means that it read by women and men from diverse backgrounds around the world, making it a truly global brand and a global force.
