Hide your kids and stop them presses, folks, because it has happened. Kanye West got Anna Wintour bound (2) the Kimye Vogue cover promise of which has spawned many a-thought piece — us included — regarding its merit in the Vogue-o-sphere. And, well, here it is in all its betrothed glory.

First things first: Kim Kardashian is in a wedding dress. Kanye West is gazing longingly at her. And, there's the longest hashtag known to digital man plastered across the publication. The Earth, as we know it, is still spinning. Are we being trolled by the now power-trio? Is this one big April Fools joke on us all? Does it hurt so good? Yes, yes to it all. Are we now officially living in Kanye West's Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? Affirmative, again. This is the Vogue for the Internet age, the one that boasts hashtagged headlines and a reality star on its cover.

Watch the shoot come alive after the jump.


Here's video proof of what went down — complete with a Kanye West soundtrack and North West cameo. Because, if Vogue is going to go over the top, they are gonna go in full Riccardo Tisci glory, Nori included.

The Leibovitz-lensed (who else?) shoot has the entire family for what appears to be a practice wedding picture. Kim's massive ring takes center stage as the bodies attached to it pose in a lovely garden. But, it isn't all family time; Kim and Kanye get a little freaky on a car, reenact the famous "Bound" video, and kiss (but not really) on a private plane.

Oh, also, if you look closely, you may catch Kanye smiling (which is worth a watch in and of itself). This looks like the fanciest homecoming Vogue-coming, ever. (Vogue)
