Vanity Fair's October 2013 issue marks the publication's 100th anniversary, and the centenary milestone is celebrated with model Kate Upton gracing the cover, decked out in classic satin lingerie with birthday cake in hand. The 21-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model channels Marilyn Monroe in an image shot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, with additional photos in the magazine including Upton lounging on the moon, mimicking the original October 1913 issue of Dress & Vanity Fair. The anniversary issue launches today in New York and Los Angeles; national availability starts September 10th. Additionally, an anniversary hub is now live, containing more than 200 pieces of archival and original content.
