Tina Fey Covers 'Vogue' March 2010

Tina Fey Covers 'Vogue' March 2010

Tina Fey keeps it classy on the March 2010 cover of Vogue, the mag’s eighth annual power issue. Here’s what the 39-year-old funny woman opened up about:

On normal girls: “I feel like I represent normalcy in some way. What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there’s me, carrying normalcy. (pauses) Me and Rachael Ray.”

On America’s weight issues: “People will say, ‘Oh, fashion magazines are so bad, they’re giving girls a negative message’”but we’re also the fattest country in the world, so it’s not like we’re all looking at fashion magazines and not eating. Maybe it just starts a shame cycle: I’m never going to look like that model, so… Chicken McNuggets it is! And conversely, I don’t look at models who are crazy skinny and think I want to look like that, because a lot of them are gigantic, with giant hands and giant feet.”

On wearing hand-me-downs: (When she was in grade school, a cousin gave her some hand-me-downs that included a “colonial-lady” Halloween costume.) “It consisted of a bonnet and a burlap apron and a long skirt. And I would just wear it sometimes after school. As an outfit… It was the Bicentennial! People were excited!”

    She looks great!

    I adore Tina Fey! She’s hilarious and real and beautiful.

    I’m not crazy about this cover though. I don’t think it shows the real Tina Fey.

  • justme

    Love her, she looks great.

  • Venessa

    Wow that is so retouched!

  • dot.

    I adore Tina, but leave it to Anna W. to photoshop her Tina’s scar out. She’s supposed to represent normalcy, right?

  • NativeNYker

    That is some major airbrushing!

    Rants, Thoughts & Merde…man-appearance

    ‘Oh, fashion magazines are so bad, they’re giving girls a negative message’—but we’re also the fattest country in the world, so it’s not like we’re all looking at fashion magazines and not eating” Agree 100%

  • Joanne

    she looks great in the cover, but what is she wearing?? it looks like a towel draped over her nonexistent breasts

  • Patty

    i really like her but she looks so awkward in all the photos

  • postwatcher

    um…was she always this super skinny? Her upper arms are the width’s of a kid….

  • Lona

    I don’t understand why Vogue never uses models on the cover anymore? I love Tina Fey and 30 Rock is my favorite show but what does this have to do with fashion?

  • guinness

    Who doesn’t like glamour shots? She looks incredible. And tell me none of you here wished you had some great pics of yourself where there were some airbrushing going on? She has NOT done airbrushing before. and if she does come across as awkward to some people, all the more reason to believe she is “real” and being herself in these. And really freakin smart. Brilliant, in fact. I wish she twittered. stop judging her and her body.

    I LOVE THE MICKEY MOUSE PICTURE>>>>>> BRILLIANT>STUNNING>>>PERFECT. and she has had a baby with that body ffs. this woman deserves women supporting her, she is part of a very few professionals/writers/actors who are real-so stop picking on her and enjoy her humor.

  • burgerqueen

    what’s a ‘hand-me-down”??

  • edskee

    An interesting, smart and beautiful woman on the cover. I will actully buy Vogue!

  • Nic

    Are you kidding me???????

    Whose body is that? Victoria Beckham’s? Pleaseee how stupid to make her look totally different than what she looks like, its like: we will give you the cover as long as we can make you fit in what WE think is beautiful, so lame!

  • chery


    They posted an excerpt of the interview at and I think it will explain why. Vogue at least did something right here by featuring someone who can talk intelligently about fashion, its power and its relation to power.

  • yo sista

    I knew since they putted that nobody Jessica Biel on the Cover, that Vogue lost its prestige.

  • Abby

    Who is that?

  • meh

    Love her! She is so down-to-earth and funny.

  • cleanfun

    haha airbrushed her whole body, still ugly

  • seniordatematch

    she is so pretty

  • All Women Stalker

    I wish Vogue would just leave women’s arms alone. With that said, I think Tina looks lovely.

  • nea

    love tina, she’s so funny, made one of the best shows today.
    as for the vogue and airbrushing – it’s their thing, they have their vision of perfection, which is anna wintours’ vision of perfection of course. if you watch the movie september issue you’ll see what I mean.

  • lakers fan in boston

    i like her pics, she looks ok in most of the them
    i always like her in interviews, she’s never 2 serious, always adds a hint of humor =]
    i think the cover is a bit 2 much tho, she still looks ok i guess

  • cutesinglesinthecity

    i wan to ban g her

  • Divine Goddess

    haha everything she said is SO TRUE. especially the nonsense about models being bad influences.

  • anna

    I love her but the airbrushing is awful.
