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 »

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.
