Vanity Fair & the Hollywood Issue

item0.rendition.slideshowHorizontal.cover-pull-out-left

Yesterday, Vanity Fair debuted their 2013 Hollywood issue-a spread that seems to solidify which actors have made it that year, and who is sure to have a promising year ahead of them.  Despite the ticking clock that commences once an actor is labeled the new “it” girl/boy (those featured on the front of three panels are, of course, deemed the favorites), the majority of Vanity Fair‘s cover subjects from the issue’s 18 year history continue to be relevant. In contrast to past ‘Hollywood’ covers, 2013’s features only three actors, and surprisingly lacks that posed-to-perfection layout that has become an Annie Leibovitz signature. This year’s darlings, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, and Ben Affleck certainly had a good 2013 (let’s hope it softens the blow of that Oscar snub, Benny…) Acclaimed photographer Bruce Weber, under the direction of editor Graydon Carter, went for a more casual approach, photographing more than 75 stars for the issue, creating “Bruce Weber’s Adventures in Hollywood”-an ode to a bygone era in Tinseltown.
