Funny girl Tina Fey lands the March cover of Vogue

Tina fey vogue2 Decidedly unglamorous gal Tina Fey has received the highest blessing from the world's fashion bible -- the writer and actress appears on the March cover of Vogue magazine.

"I feel like I represent normalcy in some way. What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality," Fey tells writer Jonathan Van Meter

"And then there's me, carrying normalcy. Me and Rachael Ray."

Tina doth protest too much, however. We doubt Rachael Ray could pull off the Gucci evening gown, Prada separates and Dolce & Gabbana romper Fey wears in her Tonne Goodman-styled spread.

"I'm almost 40, and I wore a romper today," Fey said in a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, which took place at her stomping ground, 30 Rockefeller Center. 

Fey's trademark scar was airbrushed for the shoot, but the actress insists she's not perpetuating an image of perfection.

"I don't weigh myself. I just go by if my clothes fit. I try not to participate too much in the incredible amount of wasted energy that women have around dealing with food," she said.

Before her Emmy-winning show "30 Rock" hit airwaves, Fey was the head writer at "Saturday Night Live" -- a gig that wasn't landing her on any covers. The comedian was about 30 pounds overweight, but after being appointed a "Weekend Update" anchor she hit the treadmill and hasn't stopped since.

"I've never gone back up," she says of her weight.

"Well … I have had a baby. I gained 35 pounds. And had a five-pound baby."

It's a shame that a lady like Tina is downplaying her looks. This outer perfection stuff is tiresome. After all this women are STILL not liberated.

@Visitor -- Yeah, as if someone forced Fey at gunpoint to put on those mouse ears!

And the only 2 people who think that Fey is funny is herself and her agent!

I think Tina Fey is absolutely gorgeous. She has the look of an intelligent, engaging woman who knows who she is.

Why did Vogue airbrush the scar ? Isn't this the age of disclosure ?How do you tell people that you are comfortable in your own skin and allow this deception? To abet or promote Fey as an irreverent call em as they are revolutionary by cherry picking the images that obscure rather than reveal truth ,makes Anna Wintour's Vogue something of a counterfeit itself.

Tina is really pretty, deserves VOGUE!

Expect that vogue has lost quite some reputation since they published Michelle Obama (the WORST lady of beauty and fashion).
