Vanity Fair will be pushing the envelope with their July issue. Actually, it better be a pretty big envelope, since the Bono-edited issue will be available with 20 different celebrity covers to collect.
The issue focuses on the crisis in Africa and the covers feature celebrities like Brad Pitt, Desmond Tutu, Alicia Keys, Warren Buffett, Muhammad Ali and Bill Gates, all shot by celebrity photog Annie Leibovitz. Barney’s on Madison Avenue will feature all the covers in its store windows.
From Women’s Wear Daily: “These are incredible people of our time who all have a passion for and a connection to Africa,” said Leibovitz. “It was important to me to really show the humanity in their faces.”
