Vanity Fair Readers Prefer Women

When it comes to buying Vanity Fair, it’s all women, all the time, according to a MIN online report. The magazine’s best-selling issues from 2010 all featured women on the cover, with August 2010 (featuring a profile of Angelina Jolie) selling the most.

The Jolie issue sold over half a million copies, followed by Lady Gaga (460,056), Meryl Streep (447,000), Grace Kelly (417,000), and Marilyn Monroe (408,700).

The worst selling issue for Vanity Fair was the June World Cup Preview, which had half-naked soccer stars Ronaldo and Drogba on the cover. It sold only 269,000 copies, proving that Vanity Fair readers are more interested in women and (once again) Americans really don’t like soccer.
