WINNER 'celebs' 2009 (usa)
ASME cover awards, first place 2009: best cover in entertainment & celebrity:
Tina Fey became America’s sassiest sweetheart, overnight, with her dead-on impersonation of the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin. Fey had always been regarded as a major comedic talent, but her evisceration of Palin on Saturday Night Live gained her a whole new fan base. For Vanity Fair’s first 2009 cover, Annie Leibovitz photographed the 30 Rock actress--Fey writes and executive produces the show, too--in a celebratory inaugural outfit designed specifically for this session by Tommy Hilfiger.
