Ad Age announced this past week, "Vogue increased its January-to-October ad pages more than 9% -- to 2,125, fewer only than Brides and People -- and boosted its big newsstand component almost 13% over the first half of last year, partly but not entirely on the strength of a great Lady Gaga cover in March." The Gaga cover, which was shot by Mario Testino, also notably included Vogue's spring fashion editoral spread.
Furthermore, US Vogue's September Issue included an astounding 584 ad pages. The publication beat out The Economist, Vanity Fair and TIME, which came in at No. 2. Wintour, however, was not dubbed the Editor of the Year, with that title going to Tyler Brule of Monocle magazine.
Maybe next time, Anna.
