Although early estimates suggested Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's April cover would beat Michelle Obama's and Beyonce's from last year, it seems the projected figures of 400,000 to 500,000 copies sold were overinflated.
Jay-Z's wife's 2013 issue sold 355,000 and the First Lady's sold about 269,000. "I'd argue that if you peg last year's Michelle Obama at 269,000, this issue will net around 250,000," Josh Gary, VP of Mag Net Data, told the New York Post.
Vogue had no comment on the sales figures, but we're sure Kim was just glad she finally scored the cover, no matter how it sold. As for Kanye, we can't help but quote his Taylor Swift interrupting VMA speech: "I'ma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best Vogue covers of all time!"
