Kim Kardashian tweeted a photo of her newest cover for Vogue Australia on Saturday to her 27 million Twitter followers. The 34-year-old reality star wore a white bralette and matching white dress for her second Vogue cover in less then a year. Kardashian first became a Vogue cover girl when she posed with husband Kanye West in April 2014. She wore a white wedding dress.

There’s no telling if this year’s Vogue Australia cover will result in the same controversy as Kardashian’s previous cover. Last year, many critics objected to Kardashian’s presence in the prestigious fashion magazine, but editor-in-chief Anna Wintour released a statement defending her.
"Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it,” Wintour said in March. "As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancee on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort.”
Though it was originally predicted that Kardashian’s “Vogue” cover would help sell magazines, the 2014 April issue only saw mediocre sales, according to Magnet.Data. Vogue did not reveal its sales figures.
This will be Kardashian's first prominent magazine cover since the November issue of Paper magazine, where the reality star and mother of daughter North West posed topless, balancing a champagne glass on her rear, in an effort to "Break the Internet." The cover resulted in a fury of tweets from both fans and detractors.
