Caitlyn Jenner continues to win EVERYTHING.
Just a month after wrapping up an impressive and transformative 2015, The American Society of Magazine Editors hailed Cait’s Vanity Fair issue as Cover of the Year. The iconic shot beat out ESPN Magazine‘s “Body 2015: Chantae McMillan” cover which snagged a Readers’ Choice Award from the organization.
The cover, which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz in June 2015, marked the reality star’s coming out as a woman and it was the first time anyone had seen Jenner publicly following her transition news. The evocative cover was also praised for its daring styling choices as C.J. donned a corset and panties.
Speaking on its selection, The American Society of Magazine Editors gushed:
“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├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥plus Serena Williams on both Sports Illustrated and New York├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥that’s a good time to be a magazine editor and an even better time to be a magazine reader.”
Wow, what steep competition! This nod is truly an honor for Caitlyn and Annie!
So, do YOU think the VF shot deserved to win?
