Vogue KimYe Cover Selling Well

The April issue of Vogue — featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in what appeared to be a David’s Bridal ad on the cover — is selling quite well. According to The New York Post, the issue is on pace to sell between 300,000 and 400,000 copies.

While those aren’t record-setting numbers, they’re not bad either. For some context, the March 2013 issue of Vogue, with Beyoncé on the cover, sold 355,000 copies. The April issue, with Michelle Obama gracing the front, sold a little under 300,000.

That’s some good company, especially considering all the hate the cover received from various “celebrities,” who should probably check themselves. We’re looking at you, Sarah Michelle Gellar. When your career peaks with a TV show about teenage vampire hunters who call themselves the “Scooby Gang,” you don’t get to make fun of anybody.
