Annie Leibovitz Captures the African Conversation for Vanity Fair

posl04_onthecover0707.jpg

In an unprecedented effort by Vanity Fair, 20 different covers of the July issue hit newsstands today for their Africa issue, featuring famous peeps having a “conversation” about the continent as shot by Annie Leibovitz. Feast your eyes on the slideshow: Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali, Queen Rania of Jordan, Bono, Condoleeza Rice, George W. Bush (Surprise! But excellent coordination ensured he was paired with safe Condi and Tutu to prevent his eyes from being clawed out), Desmond Tutu, Brad Pitt, Djimon Hounsou, Madonna, Maya Angelou, Chris Rock, Warren Buffett, Bill & Melinda Gates, Oprah, George Clooney, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Iman and Don Cheadle.

Although we’re not gonna go into the politics of the pairings, a few poses definitely caught our eye (even though it sounds like they were patched since VF published Leibovitz’s shooting schedule):

Chris Rock whispers sweet stock tips in Warren Buffett’s ear; Barack Obama definitely has Don Cheadle’s vote, and perhaps his undying affection.

More Oprah: Now Investigating People Who Live In Spaces Smaller Than Her Shoe Closet

Also filed in the Things That Happened While We Were Yodeling Department is the appearance of fellow design blogger Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan on “Oprah” last week. You’ll remember the Apartment Therapist recently remodeled his teeny-tiny apartment in New York. Apparently, the O-Team shot the Gillingham-Ryans’ pad, then shipped the family to Chicago for an audience appearance, where judging from the comments, Oprah never once mentioned the blog itself or said the words “Apartment Therapy.” She did, however, accuse Maxwell of making up all his redecorating ideas and forced him to apologize.
