They said it couldn't be done.

Despite a previous snub or two from Anna Wintour to her famed Met Gala, it appears that Kanye West championing for his fiancée Kim Kardashian to grace the cover of Vogue has finally paid off.

Both Kardashian, 33, and West, 36, are on the cover of the famed magazine's April issue, and has all the details — including a behind-the-scenes video.

Shot by photographer to the stars, Annie Leibovitz, Kardashian appears in a designer wedding dress with West embracing her from behind.

The world's leading fashion magazine released the cover image publicly on Friday, the video clip of the shoot — set to one of West's latest hit singles "Bound 2" -- features the couple's daughter, North West, who incidentally didn't make the cover shot.

As has previously reported, Wintour "loathed" the Kardashians — including matriarch Kris Jenner — but "for some reason, thinks Kanye is terrific."

So much so, that Kardashian was mortified when Wintour refused to invite her to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala in 2012, but West was welcomed with open arms.

West has been nagging Wintour for quite some time to put Kardashian on the cover, although it was thought to be a fruitless effort.

"Kanye knows that it’s always been a huge dream of Kim’s to be on the Vogue cover and Kanye wants to make it comes true," a source previously told

"If nothing else, Kanye is persistent."

West is also only the fifth man ever to be on the cover of Vogue — and the first man in two years!

Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was the last man to grace the cover in the magazine's June 2012 issue; Richard Gere, George Clooney and Lebron James are the previous male cover stars.
