There's a difference between wanting sales and being desperate for sales. Lady Gaga on the cover of Vogue isn't too far off since she is a musician and has her upcoming album to promote. But Kim is just famous for being famous, really. Add the fact that there is already an oversaturation of the whole Kardashian family in the media right now and it reeks of desperation. I guess I (and other forum members judging from most of the comments) expected better from Bazaar.

Why didn't they just grab some vintage unseen photos of Elizabeth Taylor and interview her from her home if this was going to be the theme? I'm 100% sure that would sell a load of copies. Terry Richardson just doesn't mesh well with Bazaar's appeal to me. The magazine use to be so regal and sophisticated compared to the other fashion magazines. What went wrong?!

I'm really tired of seeing Kim on my subscribed magazines. She's in the tabloids on a weekly basis so there's nothing more to learn about her. Her plastic face does not inspire me.

I don't like Kim Kardashian, and I understand that her face moves product, but why oh why did they have to do this for a MARCH issue?! Surely their March / September issues sell a lot anyway; so why couldn't they have moved her to April?

The cover looks like a paparazzi shot...

The editorial is abysmal.

I think this is going to be the first issue I get as a subscriber; not a great way to convince me that switching from W was a good idea.

I think it's funny to compare this cover to Vogue's March cover with Lady Gaga which is obviously 100x better than this.

You know she interviews her too right. It's bizarre bazaar.
