Vanity Fair and Annie Liebovitz Immortalize Team Obama


Team Obama is the new hotness according to Vanity Fair (and a ton of other folks, but who cares! It’s Vanity Fair! And they have pictures!)

The headlines may be dire, but the new Obama team gives a striking impression that they are not at all intimidated. I interviewed many of them during inauguration week, while Annie Leibovitz was photographing them for the March issue of Vanity Fair, and they seem to have adopted their boss’s mantra of Yes We Can. The first group I spoke to was the economic team, and the first thing I heard from Peter Orszag, the 40-year-old head of the Office of Management and Budget, set the tone: “We’ve got to make government service cool again.”

This month you can look at all the hotties, wonks, nerds, boy geniuses, power women, and trendsetters behind the man with the plan, photos all done by the award winning Liebovitz online and inside VF. (Source: “Enter Obama,” Vanity Fair)

Check out a few more pictures after the jump!

(Including Valerie Jarrett, killing it, yet again, in one of her amazing suits. I love this woman!)

  1. You simply can’t tell Valerie Jarrett anything..LOLI love her poses.OT- did you see the article in yesterday’s Washington Post about the extended family and how they’re trying to help the Obamas with ‘ normalcy’. Good article. I bet it will remind you of Familly Snob.

  2. Rikyrah – Plus in person, she is like 4 feet tall. (A bit of an exaggeration, but not by much. She is a shortie) I saw her during the campaign at a "Women for Obama" event. We were her 7th and last event of the day. She was fierce in 3" heels at 10 at night!

  3. I am shocked that Leibovitz would photograph all of those people of color unless fetishizing them in some bizarre manner. And I have rarely seen her photograph African Americans PERIOD.
