Spanish 'Vogue' Sets World 'Vogue' Record

According to a handy press release we just got from the well-heeled folks at Conde Nast, the March issue of Vogue Espa ol is setting a record as the biggest issue of Vogue ever published in the world, coming in at 1,006 pages. Oh, how the rainforests weep...

Spanish Vogue s March issue sets a new record as the biggest issue of Vogue ever published in the world. With a 1,006 pages, the magazine weighs 2.7 kilos, just short of 6 pounds.

The magazine is 400 pages with a 606 page supplement devoted to the fashion Collections, specially bound together. It surpasses the previous record, held by the September 2004 issue of American Vogue, which ran at 832 pages. The main magazine of Spanish Vogue contains 175 advertising pages and the supplement contains 173 ad pages.

To repeat: six fucking pounds. American Vogue editor Anna Wintour is obviously pissed — but we're not sure if it's because they broke her record, or because they gained so much weight.

Full release after the jump.
