The unveiling of Caitlyn Jenner on the cover of Vanity Fair is named magazine cover of the year
Remember the first time we laid eyes on Caitlyn Jenner?
It was, of course, on the June 2015 cover of Vanity Fair with that memorable image of this most gorgeous woman.
Well, the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) has decided this cover shot by Annie Leibovitz as Cover of the Year.
The group is made up of roughly 100 of the industry’s top editors, art directors and photo editors.
ASME Chief Executive Sid Holt said in a statement: “The cover contest judges had tough decisions to make this year. Any time you have to choose between an already legendary Annie Leibovitz shoot on the cover of Vanity Fair, a Mark Seliger comedy special on GQ and one of the year’s most talked-about news covers, ‘Cosby: The Women’ on New York — plus Serena Williams on both Sports Illustrated and New York — that’s a good time to be a magazine editor and an even better time to be a magazine reader.”
