Kim Kardashian has been holing up in her Bel Air abode with baby North West since relocating from her mom's house, but nary a soul has seen a picture of the little pumpkin since she was born.

Rumors have had it that Kimye didn't want the baby photographed at all, but now, it looks like at least one half of the famous couple is trying to control the first images the public sees of their offspring: Kanye West is trying to get her in Vogue.

Radar Online reports that the rapper is trying to convince Anna Wintour that Vogue would be wise to have his new family in their pages, noting that a recent best-selling issue of Cosmo featured Kim on the cover.

But, alas, Wintour notoriously despises reality stars, and lest we forget, unceremoniously cropped Kim out of a photo from a Met gala gallery in which she was standing next to Kanye.

Nevertheless, the gossip site reports that Kanye isn't going to take this lying down, and that he's already got Kim working with trainers, and has been trying to enlist photographers like Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino.
