The scorching hot August 2013 issue of Vanity Fair features Scandal star Kerry Washington on the cover. About time. 

In April 2012, Vanity Fair published a "special TV issue," and while Kerry Washington was on the inside, she was not on the cover. To be fair, Scandal started that same month, so it was not yet a hit. In January of this year, Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue included a profile of Washington, but again, she was technically not on the cover — her image appeared inside the gatefold; you could only see her face if you unfolded the poster-style cover.

Pushing people of color to the side and off the cover is a popular technique that's been employed by Vanity Fair for decades.
