Tina Fey Vogue Cover March 2010

Tine Fey on Weight, Sarah Palin, and Wearing a Romper at 39

To promote her upcoming movie, Date Night, Tina Fey entered the lioness's den that is a Vogue fashion shoot. She is the March cover girl, and somehow she manages — again — to sound like nothing more than your favorite wise-cracking friend. Maybe funnier.

On being an icon for female normalcy: "What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there's me, carrying normalcy. . . . Me and Rachael Ray."

On magazines and weight: "People will say, 'Oh, fashion magazines are so bad, they're giving girls a negative message' — but we're also the fattest country in the world, so it's not like we're all looking at fashion magazines and not eating. Maybe it just starts a shame cycle: I'm never going to look like that model, so . . . Chicken McNuggets it is!"

On Sarah Palin backlash: "The weird thing is, when Darrell Hammond or Will Ferrell or Dana Carvey did an impersonation of a president, no one assumed it was personal, but because Sarah Palin and I are both women and people think women are meaner to each other, everyone assumed it was personal."

On the power of clothes: "The impact of fashion is really interesting. I think so much of it is tied into feminism. I am a post-baby boomer who has been handed a sort of Spice Girls' version of feminism. We're supposed to be wearing half-shirts and jumping around. And, you know, maybe that's not panning out. But you can tell different generations of women by whether or not they wear that Hillary Clinton blue power suit or the reappropriated Playboy-symbol necklace worn ironically. I think women dress for other women to let them know what their deal is. Because if women were only dressing for men, there would be nothing but Victoria's Secret. There would be no Dior."
