To commemorate the passing of two American icons on the same day last month, Vanity Fair is producing two covers for its September issue.
The Michael Jackson cover, with the title “Fallen King,” features a 1989 Annie Leibowitz photo, while Farrah Fawcett‘s “Fallen Angel” cover shows the model and actress in her prime — in a 1976 photo by Bruce McBroom.
The related tribute articles were written by Lisa Robinson, who interviewed Jackson many times throughout his life, while Leslie Bennetts writes about Fawcett — a story she was working on long before the star’s death, WWD reports.
AMC show “Mad Men” was originally scheduled to be on the September cover, but they are now relegated to a story inside with a photo spread by Leibowitz, WWD said.
