Vanity Fair, Demi Moore and Magazine Cover Controversy

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.

I was pretty shocked."
