  9. AND THE WINNER IS..... [/B]

    ]Julianne Moore[/B]'s Harper's Bazaar and Busta Rhymes' Vibe covers tied for the American Society of Magazine Editors' Best Celebrity Cover Contest for 2006.

    On Julianne's cover​
    : Like so many great moments in fashion, this Julianne Moore cover photographed by Peter Lindbergh is iconic because it breaks all the rules. Traditionally, Moore is not a guaranteed grand slam on the newsstand. In this case, her face is partially obscured by her hair, and her smile isn&#8217;t broad. Furthermore, both her dress and the type are green&#8212;a color not normally reflected in high newsstand sales. Here, however, green struck gold. Newsstand sales for this issue increased by more than 10% compared to the January 2005 issue of Bazaar. If Harper&#8217;s Bazaar had done cover research, this cover would never have been produced&#8212;which just goes to show that the first rule of a successful cover is that there are no rules.​

    On Busta's cover: Not many celebrities are willing to poke fun at their controversies. When rapper Busta Rhymes was attacked for allegedly withholding information in the murder of his bodyguard, he accepted VIBE&#8217;s invitation to address it. ​
