AdWeek just came out with its annual Magazine Hot List for 2014, its yearly rundown of the hottest publishers, editors, and publications in the business. This year's pick for the hottest cover of the year, we must say, surprised us a bit. We assumed it would be the salacious cover Kim Kardashian shot for Paper magazine, but no—another Kardashian cover made the cut.
AdWeek bestowed the hottest magazine cover of the year honour to Kardashian and husband Kanye West's infamous Vogue cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz for the magazine's April 2014 issue.
"Before she and Paper magazine set out to 'break the Internet,' Kim Kardashian (with Kanye West) shocked us by landing the cover of Vogue," AdWeek's editors explain. "Love it or hate it, Anna Wintour’s seal of approval paved the way for Kardashian’s transformation into a fashion icon."
We can't disagree; the Vogue cover featuring KimYe is without a doubt the most talked-about cover of the year in the fashion world. Even Wintour herself is still talking about it.
Head over to AdWeek to see the full list, and tell us: Do you agree that KimYe's Vogue cover is the hottest of the year? Sound off in the comments below!
