Kate Upton Graces Cover of Vanity Fair’s 100th Anniversary Issue

Here’s a 180 degree turn from this morning’s tale of PTSD via modeling: Kate Upton gracing the cover of Vanity Fair’s 100th anniversary issue. Upton was photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

Vanity Fair as we know it has only been published since 1983, but that’s just semantics. If the glossy wants to consider its starting point the same as Dress & Vanity Fair’s (1913), then so be it. Who are we to argue? Plus, Kate Upton.

In addition to Upton, Vanity Fair pulled out all the stops for its 100th birthday. Starting tomorrow a slew of features will be available at vanityfair.com, and inside the issue are pieces penned by Laura Hillenbrand, Bill Maher, Dave Eggers, Kurt Andersen, Lorne Michaels, Robert Stone, Jan Morris and more.

Vanity Fair’s 100th anniversary issue hits newsstands September 5.
