*Sales of Vogue’s April 2014 issue featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover are said to be in the 300,000 to 400,000 range, which puts it on par with its top selling issues featuring Beyonce and Michelle Obama, reports the New York Post’s Page Six,
In the spring of 2013, Bey outsold the FLOTUS cover 355,397 to 293,798, including digital replicas.
According to editor-at-large Hamish Bowles, Vogue’s best-selling issue ever was 1992’s 100th anniversary edition, featuring Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Karen Mulder, Elaine Irwin, Niki Taylor, Yasmeen Ghauri, Claudia Schiffer and Tatjana Patitz.
“They were the kind of Liz Taylors of the ’80s,” the fashion journalist explained during a CBS Sunday Morning interview in December 2011. “They were the ones with the unbelievably glamorous lives and the crazy glamorous boyfriends and they were the girls that everybody wanted to be.”
Shooting with Annie Leibovitz and working with Vogue’s Bowles and Grace Coddington made Kardashian feel like a Sarah Jessica Parker character. “Honestly, I felt like the real-life Carrie Bradshaw. It was like the Sex and the City moment where you’re doing a shoot for Vogue and trying on wedding gowns,” she said on Late Night With Seth Meyers, referring to a fashion montage in the 2008 movie.
