Gwyneth Paltrow Goes “Mean Girls” On Vanity Fair

Why is Gwyneth Paltrow emailing all her friends and asking them not to speak with reporters from Vanity Fair for an upcoming story about her? They must have done something to piss Her Gwyn-ness off. Anyway, that’s so middle school. [Huffington Post]
Speaking of middle school, Kanye West slammed Kim Kardashian’s sex tape…

Let’s All Look At Vanity Fair’s Best-Dressed List, Shall We?

Vanity Fair, that magazine that your parents probably have in their bathroom magazine rack, does a yearly analysis of the best-dressed celebs, socialites and entrepreneurs. Generally, it seems, the only qualification to appear on the list is that you have to be really, ridiculously rich.  Of course, nice clothes help. But really, money does not…

The “Perfect Woman” Doesn’t Smoke, Drink, Gossip Or Curse, According To Vanity Fair Poll

A new Vanity Fair/”60 Minutes” poll surveyed American adults about the qualities they look for in an ideal woman. And, by George, we’ve got one: she’s a “bold and experienced” “good mother” who hates the movie “Fatal Attraction,” doesn’t smoke, and is a doctor. But don’t feel bad if that doesn’t describe you … because it…

Kerry Washington Lands Gorgeous Vanity Fair Cover

Well done, Vanity Fair, for shooting the brainy and beautiful Kerry Washington for your August cover. Even on the cool blue tiles of a swimming pool, the lovely “Scandal” star is sizzling hot. She just landed her first ladymag cover on Elle last month, so it figures the woman who plays Olivia Pope would dominate Vanity

You — Yes, You! — Could Top Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed List

Because I was a weird kid, I’ve been reading Vanity Fair since I was, like, 14. There’s nothing I enjoy more than long-form stories about society murders, celebrity addicts and presidential affairs. Every year, Vanity Fair also comes up with a best-dressed list, chock full of names of socialites, French nobility and a gallimaufry of minor…

Amanda Seyfried Is Upstaged By Dog In “Vanity Fair” Shoot

The writer in charge of Amanda Seyfriend’s mini-interview with Vanity Fair referred to Ms. Seyfried as “very pale and very interesting,” which, I don’t know, sounds like a kind of a weird backhanded compliment or something. Typically anything described by journalists as “interesting” isn’t at all. And plus, I guess I’m more taken with thi…

Lindsay Lohan Tweets At Tom Cruise About Scientology Wife Audition Story

Lindsay Lohan weirdly tweeted at Tom Cruise that she “had NO part” in the current Vanity Fair cover story about him auditioning possible wives … although LiLo’s name is never mentioned anywhere in the article. The Huffington Post reported the Lindsay met with Tom back in 2005, not Vanity Fair. But Lindsay explicitly denie…

Jessica Chastain, Duchess Kate, And Many More Make The Annual Best Dressed List In “Vanity Fair”

Vanity Fair releases its Best Dressed list annually in the September issue, and each year the results are less surprising than they are, well, wholly expected. It’s the typical Hollywood-meets-high society fodder: nubile French starlets, rap moguls, heiresses, oil magnates, real estate tycoons, athletes, and royalty regularly monopolize the coveted ranks without so much a…

Her 12 Best Looks: Fan BingBing

Fan BingBing is a major star in her native China, where she’s managed to eek out a dual career as both a film star and a pop singer. That means you can find her on multiple red carpets in a month, wearing multiple gorgeous and effervescent gowns.

Kristen Stewart Is A Gilded Vision On The Cover Of July’s Upcoming “Vanity Fair”

“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I…

The Good, The Bad & The Totally Meh At Vanity Fair’s Tribeca Film Fest Party

Last night, the Tribeca Film Festival kicked off with a party hosted by Vanity Fair, and dozens of celebs — including Dakota Fanning and Julia Louis-Dreyfus — turned out. The purpose of the Robert De Niro-founded fest is technically to promote films, but famous folk are really there to schmooze and party. Oh, and wear…

Makeup Bag: Rose Gold Is No Longer Just For Jewelry

Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year’s Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn’t pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it’s because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to…

….And Everyone Else Who Went To Vanity Fair’s Oscar Party

Half of Hollywood had the right idea last night — instead of going to the boring ol’ Academy Awards, they went to the Vanity Fair party early and whooped it up. Click on to see who was there — hint: everyone! (Okay, now we’re done with the Oscar red carpet slideshows. Phew!) …

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At Vanity Fair’s “Vanities” 20th Anniversary

Don’t ask me how, but Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture came together last night to present the 20th anniversary of their Vanities bash, co-hosted by Shailene Woodley. The fête, intended as a pre-Oscars celebration, brought out a pretty random assortment of celebs, and some even more random outfits. Seriously, things were weird. Here’s the (very few) truly…

Vanity Fair’s Annual Young Hollywood Issue Tucks Away Women Of Color, Renders Everyone Else Unrecognizable

Vanity Fair releases its Hollywood issue annually, but this year’s cover is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be shot by famed photog Mario Testino. His technique translates beautifully to the cover, though it’s not immediately apparent that it’s his work. The 11 young actresses featured are dressed impeccably, draped…

Paris The Golden Heiress On Spain’s “Vanity Fair”

To quote Julie, “Who cares about Paris Hilton anymore?”

To quote Ami, “Is her head going to fall off if she takes that necklace off?” (Apparently that’s a Halloween story.)

To quote Amelia, “God, that cover is tacky.” [Racked

Uh Oh, Lady Gaga’s Going Through A Dark Night Of The Single Soul

“I have never felt truly cherished by a lover. I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man … I say this honestly, and this is my new thing as of the past year: when I fight with someone I’m in a relationship with, I think, ‘What would my fans think…

First Look: “The Hunger Games” Cast In Vanity Fair

“Breaking Dawn: Part 1″? Yawn. My inner 13-year-old is seriously hyped for the film version of “The Hunger Games,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth. Especially after seeing the full cast photographed in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. Click through for more pics from the cast’s shoot. Let the games begin!

Lindsay Lohan Implies That She Should Never Have Gone To Jail

“Unless you’re a killer, I don’t see a reason to stay there. I never hurt anyone but myself.”
Lindsay Lohan looks adorable on the cover of Italian Vanity Fair. Too bad that inside she kind of backtracked on the whole “I accept my punishment and am working hard to move on” stance she’d taken earlier…
