Vanity Fair March 2011 – The Hollywood cover

3 Feb

It’s that time again, the pre-Oscar Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair. I think the cover looks stunning, Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis and Olivia Wilde are breathtaking. There has been much debate on TFS about whether certain people should be on the cover, the dresses, whether different ethnicities and nationalities were fairly represented. I think the men look so dapper, Anne looks so triple A list in her gorgeous gown. I think Oscar nominees Natalie Portman and Colin Firth being conspicuously absent is a little strange. What do you think of the cover? 

Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Jennifer Lawrence, Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, Noomi Rapace, Robert Duvall @ the back

Here are the close ups:

Gaga + Vanity Fair = captivating

8 Aug

Ok, let me get this off my chest straight away. I’m not the biggest Lady Gaga fan. I respect how far she has come in such a short space of time, and love how she pushes the boundaries of fashion but other than that I’m not overly bothered by her or her antics. Even so, I couldn’t escape the huge buzz about her Vanity Fair cover for the September issue. Fully expecting some outlandish clothes and props, I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a simple, understated cover.

Here’s the behind the scenes video, which is amazing! Better than the cover shot, in my opinion. Gaga is just beautifully captivating and the styling is out of this world, it’s such a pity she ended up being naked with a grey wig on. I only say that because there could have been a really gorgeous, ethereal shot as the cover. But I do like the understated shot they chose. It strips away the mental-ness normally associated with her.
