Pari Dukovic for New York Magazine

Some of fashion’s elite might say Kim Kardashian shouldn’t grace the cover of a magazine like Vogue, but apparently one magazine is more than willing to let her cover its Fall Fashion Issue: New York Magazine.

The cover (below) zooms in on Kardashian‘s flawless face and curly tendrils, while inside the glossy’s pages, she’s shown in various artistic above-the-waist shots — except for one (left), in which the star flaunts her famous backside in an open-back Bill Blass navy gown.

“I don’t really have goals as far as, I want to be on a cover or something like that,” she says when asked if she dreams of appearing on the cover of Vogue. “I think my goals are more just expanding my line … I don’t say, ‘Oh, I want to be on this magazine or I want to do this.'”

Though some designers and fashion personalities have announced their disdain for the curvaceous beauty (in May, designer Ralph Rucci said dressing the star would be “bastardizing yourself,” and rumors have swirled that Vogue‘s Anna Wintour isn’t a fan), dating Kanye West has certainly boosted Kardashian‘s style profile, even nabbing her front-row seats during Paris Couture week.

“If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went,” the star says of her relationship with West. “It’s cool, ’cause you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you’re talking about … So that’s been a fun similarity we have.”

And Kardashian — who’s known for her infamous 72-day marriage — is already thinking about her future with the rapper. “When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common,” she shares. “I think that’s something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone.” Apparently, she does take fashion seriously.
