Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Vogue Cover to Break Sales Records
Thu 01-05-2014

The controversial Vogue edition starring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is set to be the magazine’s best-selling of all time.

"The projections are that Kim and Kanye will likely sell almost 500,000 copies," a magazine insider told Radar Online.

Previously the best-selling issues were with Beyonce on the cover (355,000) and Michelle Obama (293,000).

There was a huge backlash when Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, announced that Kimye would be gracing the cover with thousands of people voicing their disapproval on Twitter.

The decision to put the rapper/reality star combo on the cover was actually made by Vogue’s creative director Grace Coddington who was interviewed recently in the Financial Times

"There was a wedding story to be done, and Anna probably had them in mind, because she had been seeing a lot of Kanye, so she said, ‘Maybe we should shoot it on lookalikes,’" Coddington said.

"And I thought, ‘Why not just do it on the real thing? This is Vogue."

"And I do think Kim Kardashian represents this moment in our culture. I’m fascinated by her, in the same way I’m fascinated by the people I see on the street or the subway."

"Kim is very professional," Coddington said.

"And North is very well-behaved. We did millions of pictures and she did not cry once. I got quite upset we did not have the baby on the cover. I knew going in it would be controversial, I got an envelope from Texas, with the cover ripped up into little pieces inside — but the designers all sent me flowers, so I guess they were happy."
