When the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) in 2005 ranked “The Top 40 Magazine Covers of the Past 40 Years,” Vanity Fair’s famous shot of a pregnant, naked Demi Moore placed second, behind that of a naked John Lennon spooning with a clothed Yoko Ono for Rolling Stone. Both covers were shot by Annie Leibovitz.
This summer, Vanity Fair may well lay claim to another magazine cover for the ages. According to a brief report tonight by People magazine, the famed photographer has been paired with Bruce Jenner for a cover story:
Jenner, 65, who calls his female identity “Her,” will appear as a woman in the Vanity Fair pictorial, to hit stands this summer, the source tells People.
Although there is no clear confirmation that Jenner will opt for a “Her” shot for the reported cover, it’s hard to imagine that not being the overall end result. Stay tuned.
Update (June 1):
Vanity Fair has today teased the July 2015 cover. It’s a stunning photograph, of a persona Jenner calls “Caitlyn.”
