The cool thing about this retrospective look at Annie Leibovitz Vanity Fair covers? You can see how many times the people of color get pushed to the right side of the frame, putting them safely off of the main cover of the magazine and only seen when the flap is unfolded. Victims include Zoë Saldana, America Ferrera, Kerry Washington, Lucy Liu (see the link), Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosario Dawson, Omar Epps, Jennifer Lopez (in 1997, they probably like her now that she's blonder and less "ethnic"), Will Smith and Angela Bassett. (Click to see some examples.) [ONTD]
