I am having a total blast right now reading Tina Fey‘s cover story for TIME Style & Design. Okay, well I’m taking a break to write this, lol. But it’s a really great piece so far. And I was so psyched to see her rocking the cover! Style & Design is known for having some pretty fly photo shoots (remember that one they did a while back with Marion Cotillard?), and I couldn’t wait to check out Tina‘s spread.

Tina Fey For TIME ‘Style & Design:
A woman, as Dirty Harriet might have said, has got to know her limitations. In the past seven years Tina Fey has written a best-selling book; starred in three movies; created and nurtured a TV show that was so influential and critically acclaimed, it’s amazing it wasn’t canceled; won enough awards to mobilize her own metallic-statue army; and had a key part in contributing the following words and phrases to the lexicon: Blerg, What the what?! and I want to go to there. Oh, and given birth to two children. Plus, with one dead-on impression, possibly helped decide the 2008 presidential election.
So now she’s ready for a nice lie-down, thank you very much. Or at least a coffee. Arriving at an old-school bistro near her Manhattan home, she looks like any other local mom after the school run: sensible boots, puffy jacket, cardigan and striped T-shirt. She orders the coffee and her second breakfast (two eggs over hard plus ham). The first was the leftover half of her toddler’s discarded croissant…
The actress-writer-producer acknowledges that her newfound liberty might not go smoothly. She lacks some basic life skills, like dressing: “For seven years I would literally pull something off the floor because it was 6 o’clock in the morning, go to work, put on my wardrobe until the end of the day, put on what were basically pajamas and then go home.” Even the Upper West Side Mom ensemble she’s wearing today came from 30 Rock‘s wardrobe. “I don’t actually know what I like to wear in real life,” she admits. “It’s going to be a period of terribly awkward experimentation. Like middle school all over again. Perhaps I’m a person who wears a blouse with an ascot? Dark green nails? I think it’s going to be a series of caftans.”
You can read the full interview HERE. I love the way this story is written because we’re so used to hearing about the busy lives of celebrities, but there’s always the down time, and it’s interesting to read about Tina‘s struggles in that department. She really does have a great sense of humor and it shows in the interview.
What do you guys think of the spread? I love that first pic! And I love that– even though the spread has a high-fashion feel to it, it’s still very much Tina Fey. She’s so effing awesome.
