Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are gracing the cover of Vogue magazine in April, ending a long campaign by West to get his fiancee on the cover.

Photographed by the iconic Annie Leibovitz, the picture shows Kardashian in a white gown that looks like a wedding dress with a well-dressed West draping his arms around her.

In an October 2013 radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, West said "there's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue." He added that Kardashian is more influential than United States first lady Michelle Obama in terms of fashion.

Vogue unveiled the artwork Friday, though Jezebel.com reported in early February that the couple was being photographed for the cover.

In January, West wondered why Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour would put "Girls" star Lena Dunham on the cover, but overlook Kardashian, Radar Online reported.

"To Kanye, it's insulting that his friend Anna is still refusing to even consider putting Kim on the cover of Vogue," a source told Radar Online at the time. "He thinks Anna is listening to a bunch of 'know-nothing' corporate haters, as he put it. He's upset that Anna isn't willing to do him this personal favor and put Kim on the cover."

Reactions to the cover were mixed on Twitter.
