Kanye West is desperate for Anna Wintour to like Kim Kardashian.
The Mercy rapper - who is expecting his first child with the 32-year-old reality TV star in early July - is trying to convince the fashion editor to put the brunette beauty on the US cover of Vogue magazine.
A source told Star magazine that while Wintour thinks that West (35) is "terrific", she thinks his girlfriend of almost one year is "the worst thing since socks and sandals".
The insider also claimed that the style icon said Kardashian would appear in the esteemed fashion magazine "over her dead body".
Wintour allegedly ignored Kardashian at New York Fashion Week last September and the insider claims the only way Kardashian has a chance of appearing in the American version of the magazine is in a feature introducing her newborn baby to the world.
Kardashian and Wintour's feud has been well-documented in the past.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was banned from attending the star-studded Met Gala in New York last year with West because Wintour believed she "didn't fit the bill".
A source previously explained why Kardashian was not invited: "Anna hates Kim. Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn't fit that bill at all. The Met Gala is $25 000 a ticket, but Kim couldn't even buy her way in."
West is set to perform at this year's prestigious ball on 6 May but it is uncertain if Kardashian will attend, as it is the same day her divorce trial against Kris Humphries is set to begin.
