Madonna by Annie Leibovitz on the cover of Vanity Fair
A very exciting news is just in from the US, as Madonna will grace the cover of two out of 20 different Vanity Fair covers for the magazine’s special July 2007 issue.
On today’s Oprah Winfrey Show in the U.S., the last segment was about U2’s Bono being the first-ever Guest Editor for the July issue of Vanity Fair magazine. He chose Africa as the theme and there will be twenty covers each featuring two or three celebrities and/or politicians that are at the forefront of African involvement.
They quickly scanned through most of the covers and Madonna was seen on two of them, posing on one with actor Djimon Hounsou who starred in “Blood Diamond” and on the other with poet Maya Angelou. Oprah is also on two of the covers and they showed footage of her photo session with Annie Liebovitz, the photographer for all of the covers.
Oprah reported that the issue would be on newsstands later this week.
Special thanks to Eric for breaking the news. Check out more about Bono as the Guest Editor of the July 2007 Issue of Vanity Fair on Oprah.com. Here’s a short excerpt of their report:
“In honor of this landmark issue, Vanity Fair will have 20 different covers shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz. Each cover will feature the famous faces who are leading the way to a brighter future for Africa. “This is kind of a visual chain letter of people talking, spreading the message from person to person to person to person to person,” Annie says. “These are incredible people of our time involved in this effort to make Africa better.”
