Photography by Annie Leibovitz

It all began in 1995 with 10 alluring beauties on a three-page foldout cover. With the latest hollywood issue fronted by fresh faces Emily Blunt, Amy Adams, Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway—Vanity Fair marks the 14th year of its gigantic annual Hollywood Issue, and thus the 14th year of Annie Leibovitz’s spectacular gatefold covers. These classic photographs capture Tinseltown talent and glamour like nothing else. Here’s a look back at all of them. (The left third of each image is what was visible on the cover before unfolding.)

Getting your photo portrait taken by Annie, is one of the biggest honors a celebrity can get, and these days, a very annoying young Disney star is sending apologies to the planet cause of her "naked" Annie Leibovitz's photo in the new V.F. issues, why is that?
