Kim Kardashian West has a wish fulfilled with her first solo Vogue cover, the May 2019 issue for which she’s shot by Mikael Jansson wearing Chanel .
On Instagram, Kardashian wrote about the big moment, “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.”
The 38-year-old mother of three (with another on the way via surrogate) also thanked her husband, Kanye West. She wrote, “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.'”
In the profile, Kardashian revealed she’s studying to become a lawyer. Rather than attend a law school, she’s apprenticing under two lawyers, a path to becoming a lawyer that’s legal in four states, including California.
