We often get tipped off about which celeb will cover an upcoming Vogue issue before it hits newsstands. Our sources are pretty good. But when we heard that Rihanna and Anne Hathaway are up next–straight from the lady who shot those covers, Annie Leibovitz, herself–we’re pretty sure that we can trust that the intel is accurate.
The famed photog compromised the covergirls while signing autographs at her art show in Columbus, Ohio late last month.
“Are you shooting any covers?” one fan asked from the crowd. “I finished two back-to back covers–Rihanna and Anne Hathaway for Vogue,” Leibovitz answered. It was all caught on video here. The timing makes sense for both covergirls considering Riri’s seventh album is due out in November and Les Miserables, starring Anne Hathaway as Fantine, is due out in late December.
And if you happen to be in Columbus anytime before December 30th, Leibovitz’s show is well worth checking out. Included among the 156 photos on display are a portrait of a bath soaked Angelina Jolie hung next to a photo of Brad Pitt sprawled out on a motel bed circa ’93, and countless iconic shots (John and Yoko, the Stones on tour) from Leibovitz’s early work for Rolling Stone.
