Kim Kardashian West's New 'GQ' Cover Is a Dream Come True — Sorry, 'Vogue'

Once upon a time, Kim Kardashian West was just another one of Paris Hilton's sidekicks... err.... employees. But a few years and multiple reality shows later, the entrepreneur has an estimated net worth of $85 million, making it safe to say — because she's said it herself — that all of her dreams are coming true. 

Today's dream-turned-reality? Landing the cover of GQ's 10th anniversary "Love, Sex, and Madness" issue.

"The cover of @GQ is here!!! This was seriously a dream come true!!!!," she wrote on Instagram.

In true Kardashian West form, the photos are appropriately racy — though tame in comparison to past internet-breaking endeavors.

This cover is not to be confused with her other dream — in the form of a Vogue cover —  that came true in 2014. 

"This is such a dream come true!!!" she wrote at the time. "Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover!" She had a little more excitement for this cover as she had added, "O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breath!"

That dream received some critical backlash at the time, prompting Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour to release a statement about the magazine's choice to put her and then-fiance Kanye West on the cover.

More recently, the 35-year-old explained on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians how a publicist once told her she'd never be on the cover of Cosmopolitan. (She's since appeared on its cover three times.) 

Now, with both of her dreams having come true — that of achieving magazine covers, rather than the more common sentiment of finding love or having children — one has to wonder what's left for Kardashian West to dream of?
