After months of voting, readers have selected their favorite Vanity Fair cover of all time: our December 1989 issue featuring Michael Jackson, shot by contributing photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The King of Pop faced some stiff competition. The winning issue was up against covers from over a century, ranging from portraits of classic Hollywood icons, Jazz Age illustrations, heartthrobs, and such pop queens as Lady Gaga. Robert Pattinson’s Cajun-inspired April 2011 cover came in at second place, bolstered by a zealous group of dedicated Twihards.

Other popular covers included Kristen Stewart in couture on our July 2012 issue, a sultry Marilyn Monroe on our October 2008 cover, David Duchovny’s June 1998 cover, and Audrey Hepburn’s May 2013 issue.

To honor our winner, we’ve put together a slide show of important moments in Jackson’s career that led up to our 1989 cover. So c’mon, jam on it.

And because we love our Twihards just as much, we’ve put together a conciliatory collection of R. Pat’s appearances in Vanity Fair.

Now let’s all be friends again.

Personal note: The webpage on VF has a YT of "Why can't we be friends" under this article. (After writing "Now let’s all be friends again." at the end of it). That is condescending and ridiculous. They are pandering to those "twihards" for their continued patronage imo. Another thing-they posted the winner THE GREAT AND ONE AND ONLY KING OF POP MICHAEL JACKSON at 12:00AM 11/22/12 BUT the voting page is still up! I tried to vote again and as usual MJ vote didn't go through BUT #2 vote went through! To me that is even worse pandering. The "c'mon jam on it" comment is beyond lame too. Who ARE these people? I had a much higher level of respect for VF before this. Unless they change up and/or feature MJ again, I do not plan to ever buy this magazine again tbh. It's like they are pissed MJ won. He beat #2 by nearly 25,000 votes. Seriously! So who needs them? Not me.

MICHAEL JACKSON WINS ANOTHER WORLD'S BEST AND WILL CONTINUE TO FOR MANY YEARS TO COME!!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Growing Up Jackson
By Alyssa Bereznak

11/22/13

The votes are in and our dear readers have deemed Michael Jackson’s 1989 Vanity Fair appearance, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the best cover in the history of the magazine. Considering the King of Pop’s competition—hundreds of Hollywood stars, heartthrobs galore, and gorgeous Art Deco illustrations from another era—we’d say a celebration is in order. As a thank-you to all the Jackson fans who voted, we’ve put together a collection of moments in the rising star’s career that led up to that legendary cover. Click below to see the performer rise from 12-year-old musical prodigy to unstoppable stage presence.
