Vanity Fair, Demi Moore and Magazine Cover Controversy

Demimoore
This 1991 Vanity Fair cover shot by Annie Leibovitz stirred up a lot of controversy and remains one of the most-talked about magazine covers in recent history.Critics balked at the "unnecessary exposure" and some retailers responded by selling the magazine in brown paper bags. Advocates argued the cover captured the beauty of pregnancy. At the time Moore told V magazine, "It did seem to give a little bit more permission to feel sexy, attractive when you’re pregnant,but I really didn’t expect for the response to be what it was. I was pretty shocked."
