Happy Birthday, Annie Leibovitz!

Annie Leibovitz, photographer of the stars, turns 63 today. In 1970, she started her career as staff photographer for Rolling Stone magazine, just getting off the ground. Three years from that, publisher Stone's Jann Wenner promoted her to Chief Photographer.

At one point, 1989, Leibovitz was in a relationship with the late Susan Sontag, the brilliant essayist. She considers Sontag a mentor.

Glenn Close famously satirized Leibovitz on tv's "Will & Grace," albeit as a fictitious character based on the famed photographer.



Here are just a few iconic images taken by the grande diva of portraits:
