It sold a lot of copies...
Radar Online reports that the issue of Vogue magazine with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover is set to break sales records. The April 2014 issue will beat the top-selling issues with covers that featured Beyonce (355,390) and Michelle Obama (293,798).
A source said: "The projections are that Kim and Kanye will likely sell almost 500,000 copies."
Vogue never comments on sales figures but was criticized for including a reality star on the cover of a fashion magazine. Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar wrote on Twitter: "Well……I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???"
Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour commented on the criticism. She said: "As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn't true."
