Kanye West has allegedly confronted Anna Wintour after his fiancée Kim Kardashian was overlooked for the cover of Vogue magazine.

The 36-year-old rapper is reportedly "insulted" that the fashion editor, who he deems a close friend of his, picked filmmaker Lena Dunham over his beau for the cover of February's edition.

A source told RadarOnline that Kanye - who met with Wintour at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge - argued that Kim is "just as talented as Lena, if not more so."

"To Kanye it's insulting that his friend Anna is still refusing to even consider putting Kim on the cover of Vogue. He thinks Anna is listening to a bunch of 'know-nothing' corporate haters, as he put it. He's upset that Anna isn't willing to do him this personal favour and put Kim on the cover.

"Kanye knows that it's always been a huge dream of Kim's to be on the Vogue cover and Kanye wants to make it come true. If nothing else, Kanye is persistent."

However, it was previously revealed that Anna, 64, "hates" Kim - who has seven-month-old daughter North with Kanye - so much that she even banned her from attending the Met Gala in New York in 2012.

A source said previously: "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 US$25,000 a ticket, but Kim couldn't even buy her way in."
