Cover Battle: Vanity Fair or Esquire

It's the Queen versus Viggo.


Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Vanity Fair taking on Esquire.

VF’s latest features Queen Elizabeth II with a few corgis, who happen to be among the ugliest dogs around. The super small legs are just weird. The truth hurts, Internet.


Esquire, meanwhile, chose Viggo Mortensen as its cover star. In the accompanying interview, Mortensen took the bold stance that he—a rich, famous white man—only does what he enjoys. Radical.
