Vanity Fair is observing a major milestone with its latest issue. The iconic magazine is celebrating 100 years and featuring lots of birthday surprises in the historic magazine in stores now.

The publication enlisted the help of Kate Hudson for the cover and Bill Maher and Lorne Michaels for essayists. Additionally, the site is decked out with lots of decorations, pictures and a section for each of the last 100 years. “The Web site has only existed since 2004, so it doesn’t represent our great history that well. We wanted to take the opportunity to really show online just how incredible the history is,” said digital editor Chris Rovzar.

Hitting the stands for the very first time back in 1913 under the name “Dressed & Vanity Fair,” the magazine disappeared 20 years later and reemerged again in 1983. The staff of Vanity Fair worked for over a year to prepare to share all of the rich history of the magazine.

Be a part of the centennial by visiting vanityfair.com and picking up a copy when it goes on sale in New York and L.A. on Sept. 5 and nationally on the iPad, Nook, and Kindle on Sept. 10.
