Model -VS- Celeb Appeal in Magazine Sales

Hey everybody. So there is a debate among the scarcity of fashion models representing fashion magazine's covers, such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle...etc. I feel that the models belong on fashion magazine covers, and no offense to the celebs but they should stick to their movies and let the models do the campaigns. But obviously celebrities are more well known therefore generate more revenue for the magazine. All is fair in fashion & business, I suppose.
