She got attention...but that doesn't necessarily translate into sales.

Popcorn sales are through the roof, if this thread is to be believed.

Well I hope so...But I suppose nowadays getting attention and being all over the web is better than sales

Honestly, I haven't been this excited about any magazine in a while, not that that means anything. It's weird with Kanye's pose/closed eyes and Kim's plastic grin, but certainly not as awful as it could've been. And honestly, I think Kim deserves it. She's an extremely relevant woman who's endured quite a bit over virtually nothing, plus she's become known for her fashion choices, even if they're absolutely tragic for the most part.

It's an okay cover, not the best and not the worst, I think people should just let Kim have her moment. Kerry, Lupita etc will get theirs when the time right.

^ Wow, that is pretty bold she posted it, i dont think anyone would have the balls, of the celebs to post that, i am there with you guys!

Oh and i see now Emily Blunt is featured in this issue, another fantastic woman who has never graced the cover.

wow approx 5 hours ago this thread started and we have well over 12.000 views on this thread
what i want to say is, im actually disappointed that Kim got this cover, cause isnt there MANY others who would be more deserving to be on the cover than she?
I bet she will get her STAR on walk of fame too soon

With Anna Wintour at the helm, Vogue US jumped ship a long time ago. A lot of people knew that Vogue US is a joke now, but have weirdly still been subscribed to it. I guess Kim Kardasian is what broke the camel's back for them, lol.

I love this cover. Go Kim Kardashian! I love her just because ''snobs'' hate her so much (and she's ain't no worse than pop singers, who ''deserve'' Vogue covers). I just hate Kanye being a shadow here, wish it was Kim only. Still, it's lovely and better than their usual covers.

Remind me again why she is on the cover of a fashion magazine?

Anna trying to appeal to lowest common denominator? (if even that since ratings for Keeping Up with the Karadashians is also on the decline)

I absolutely agree with you!!! I cancelled my subscription to US Vogue when Kate Upton got the cover and THIS, THIS is the worst cover Anna has ever done!!! They're NOT Vogue!!!

Paris Hilton got her French Vogue cover so I guess Anna had to give Kim hers

She lost it for me that's for sure!!!

It makes sense he is on the cover with her because alone it would the most vapid profile ever.
and to think that US Vogue was MY only reference back in the day. Thank God I realize Anna wasn't always right: hence that awful cover choice.

It's a sad conclusion and yeah, indeed, US Vogue is now the same crap as any other gossip magazines.

You have oscar winning actresses who deserve to be on the cover, as well as an entire modelling industry craving for this place and a rapper with a porn star girlfriend gets it instead? how street of Anna Wintour to have done this, say what you want about Vogue Paris but at least it has values that it is actually a fashion magazine and not OK! Magazine.
