Pic of the Day: Annie Leibovitz Turns Lens to Mad Men


Photo credit: Annie Leibovitz; Vanity Fair, September 2009

Vanity Fair‘s September feature on Mad Men was supposed to be the cover story, until the powers that be decided on Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett memorial images instead. Luckily the issue still contains Annie Leibovitz’s lavish portraits of John Hamm (shirtless in two of the snaps!) and January Jones. Perfect marriage of photographer and subject: don’t shows like Mad Men exist to be photographed by Annie Leibovitz? And vice versa? We just don’t understand her financial woes.
