A Pregnant Serena Williams Poses Nude on Vanity Fair’s Already Iconic August Cover

Throughout decades of publication, Vanity Fair has had its fair share of iconic covers, and the title’s newest cover is sure to generate a whole lot of buzz. For the upcoming August 2017 issue, tennis ace Serena Williams recreates one of the magazine’s most recognizable covers exactly 26 years later, posing nude à la Demi Moore (August 1991) while pregnant with her first child. Taking to the cover for the very first time, Serena is captured in profile by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.

“Woah, OK! I’m speechless. So much to take in. I think it’s a very daring image (remake of Demi’s iconic cover?) which will certainly shock the VF reader trouser-less. The ‘styling’ simply doesn’t work, it’s far too dark, but with that masthead it’s definitely eye-catching. Plus, I’m definitely keen to hear what she’s got to say,” voiced tFS forum member Benn98 upon seeing the cover.

“Now that is how you re-do your most Iconic cover, LOVE IT!” applauded Miss Dalloway.

“I’m not a fan of this kind of pregnancy pictures, but this one is really beautiful, love the atmosphere,” confessed Zelda Zonk.

Echoing the sentiments was forum member kokobombon: “I find this type of cover lame but she looks amazing, look at that hair! and I love that they left some skin texture instead of Photoshopping her into oblivion!”

Maxlinden was certainly a fan. “RAW GLAMOUR! I live!” he gasped in sheer awe.

“OMG! love it,” stated an impressed matheus_s.
