Vanity Fair Continues Its Tradition Of Dead Cover Stars With Princess Diana

By now, we're all well aware of Vanity Fair's penchant for putting deceased people on its cover — the magazine thrives on nostalgia!

But the September cover featuring Princess Diana seems a little too calculated. They obviously timed it to coincide with all the royal baby hype. On the other hand, at least it's not another Marilyn Monroe cover, right?

The photo of Diana, taken by Mario Testino in 1997, is absolutely beautiful, but maybe it would've made more sense for this cover to have gone to Naomi Watts, who plays the late princess in the upcoming Diana biopic.

Just a thought!

    Its hard not to think of Princess Diana with all the hoopla surrounding the new royal baby.
    The last time the world went on a rabid royal watch was 31 years ago in June of 1982 when we waited with baited breath for the birth of another prince, Prince William. Just as today, the wave of royal baby fever spread across the pond to the US, where the souvenir market was cashing in. For the millions who couldn't get enough of this 20th century fairy tale, they could have fun browsing through commemorative memorabilia such as a paper doll book cheekily called "Chuck & Di Have a Baby" For a peek at the book featuring cut- out dolls of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and the anxiously awaited royal baby boy who also is a blond tyke visit
