There’s no doubt about it: Beyoncé is the Queen. And as Queen she typically reigns over any other basic b*tches that try to stand in her way… But Kim Kardashian might be the exception this time around.
No, the reality star didn’t convince Bey to attend her wedding… But she may have proven she’s just as powerful as the Queen B.
The New York Post‘s Page Six estimated that Kim’s April Vogue cover could reach–and may even outsell–both Beyoncé and Michelle Obama‘s issues. The “Drunk in Love” singer’s March 2013 cover outsold the First Lady’s edition 355,397 to 293,798 copies, including digital replicas. Meanwhile, they’re estimating Kim’s can sell up to 400,000 copies.
(Looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar’s public attack on the cover didn’t work out too well!)
A spokesperson for Vogue refused to comments on the sales figures.
Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, however, did leave an editor’s note that read: “As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have ready that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matt is that it isn’t true.”
And it appears the gossip could prove to be one of the biggest selling points of the issue.
Good call, Wintour!
