And Every Other Famous Person Who Showed Up To Vanity Fair‘s Oscar Party And Wore Something Fabulous…

Oh hi, are you tired of Oscar fashion yet? Of course not! Vanity Fair‘s annual Oscar party is honestly more of a fashion parade than even the Academy Awards, which only a select group gets to attend, because everyone and their mom and their neighbor and their neighbor’s waxer is invited. I mean, if you didn’t get an invite, you should probably be pretty devastated. Click through to see everyone from Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon and Amy Poehler, to Diane Kruger, Miranda Kerr and Zooey Deschanel, as well as a couple of choice outfit changes from Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lawrence.

Vanity Fair‘s Hollywood Issue Has Equal Number Of Black & White Stars On The Cover

Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood Issue hits stands any day now, but the cover image has already hit the internet. The three-page-gatefold cover (the third page of the gatefold is after the jump) features six Black actors and actresses and six white actors and actresses, the former either indicating that the mag decided to get with the program or a sign that important films starring Black performers were impossible to ignore this year. Regardless, I am pretty damn pleased with this lineup of cover stars, which includes the radiant Lupita Nyong’o and Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years A Slave”), Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”), and Idris Elba (“Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”). I am also really digging Jared Leto’s dashing cover look and Bree Larson’s understated beauty. But I could really, really do without Julia Roberts smack dab in the middle, kicking back in Elba’s lap. Not trying to be a hater, but amongst that array of talent, her role in “August: Osage County” wasn’t worthy of the front cover, while Lupita was pushed onto page two. But that’s a fairly minor quibble, I guess. Now, when can I get my hand on a copy so I can absorb every word of that long-awaited Gwyneth Paltrow hit piece? Keep reading »

Calling himself only “Jean Paul,” the photographer who snapped over 1,000 photos over 27 minutes of Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson during their now-infamous lunch in London on June 9 is interviewed in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair“I saw her lurch violently backwards,” the paparazzo told the magazine about the incident. “I thought Charles was demonstrating something. It lasted about 30 seconds. Then he did it a second time, and it was so violent, with such force, that her head snapped backwards … I was taking pictures the whole time.” Keep reading »

Vanity Fair Rolls Over For Gwyneth Paltrow And Christmas Is Ruined

  • Santa just dropped a big ol’ goopy turd in my stocking – Us Weekly says that Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter have “kissed and made up” which means any story the mag might do on GP is going to be boring and scandal-less. But but but but but, Santa, I asked for a juicy, scandalous, secret-filled slam piece for Christmas, remember? [Us Weekly]

Liberty Ross On Rupert Sanders’ Cheating Scandal With Kristen Stewart: “It Was Horrible”

 “I’m not a quitter. I’ve done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I just didn’t have any more to give, you know? … I knew that I wasn’t feeling 100 percent right [about our marriage]. I found myself on a roller coaster, like, I’m going to keep things moving, keep things going. I’m going to keep up this amazing [façade], everyone looking at me and Rupert, thinking, Oh, wow, you guys have it all…. Really, I had times when I felt very lonely, very disconnected from Rupert. We’d lost our real connection. … We were together for 16 years, and that in itself is really beautiful. And we’ve created two exceptional lives together.”

Model Liberty Ross opens up in December’s Vanity Fair about the Twihard Cheating Scandal Heard ‘Round The World.

From what I can ascertain from the clip posted online, her relationship dissolution story is completely relatable. Well, except for the whole dashingly handsome director husband/internationally famous starlet part.   Keep reading »

Will Vanity Fair‘s Expose Reveal Gwyneth Paltrow Had An Affair With Elle Macpherson’s Husband?

As much as I do not enjoy Gwyneth Paltrow and rubbed my hands together with glee at the thought of a damning tell-all about the actress/lifestyle guru, I had hoped the secrets would reveal her to be a fraud not a philanderer. But sources are whispering that the much-anticipated Vanity Fair “epic takedown” might reveal that Gwyneth, who’s been married to Chris Martin since 2003, had an affair with Elle Macpherson’s billionaire husband, Jeff Soffer.

Martha Stewart’s undermining non-endorsement of Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle guru aspirations is just the beginning; Vanity Fair will soon publish what some are describing as an “epic takedown” of the actress/foodie with a cover story that Paltrow declined to participate in. Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter told The Times of London that Gwyneth “forced his hand” by telling her famous friends in an email last month not to cooperate with the magazine on the feature. “Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again,” GP added in the email, as quoted by The New York Times

Apparently Gwyneth, who has (willingly) appeared on the cover of the magazine before, didn’t like the negative tenor of recent VF profiles of Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt and was worried she would be portrayed in a bad light as well. But it sounds like once Carter and Co. found out that Paltrow was steering her friends and colleagues away from working with the magazine on the piece — or on anything at all — they decided to go full steam ahead with their takedown.
