Cover Battle: Vanity Fair or Interview

Welcome back to FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This week we have Vanity Fair versus Interview. This Vanity Fair cover is one of three the magazine published for its first ever comedy issue. We picked this because Paul Rudd’s blue ensemble has us thinking thoughts. It’s not a bad look, right? Just nod your head if you agree.

Interview went with a color-splashed photograph of Garrett Hedlund, a guy we had to Google. From IMDb we learned that he’s the actor from Tron Legacy. Hedlund also looks like he needs a shower. That wasn’t on IMDb. He’s probably happy about that.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
