Vanity Fair Likes Its Cover Starlets White And 100 Pounds Apiece

Not that we’ve got a beef with Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried or Carey Mulligan, but Vanity Fair could use a little diversity in their starlet department. Maybe Gabby Sidibe’s invitation got lost in the mail? [Vanity Fair]…

What’s A “Twilebrity”?

Vanity Fair has discovered Twitter and—because it’s Vanity Fair—they’re on the case with a new article about “Twitter celebrities.” But oh no, not actual celebrities like tweet-happy Ashton Kutcher.

Um, yum. Oh wait, I didn’t just say that out loud? The new cover of Vanity Fair boasts a gorgeous Annie Leibovitz photo of Tiger Woods wearing nothing but a knit cap—and a very un-golf one at that. Since Tiger has spent the past month and half doing everything in his power to not be…

Photoshopping Meryl Streep: I Mean, Really?

I found this photograph after clicking on a VanityFair.com link that read: “Click here to see a slide show of Brigitte Lacombe’s portraits of Meryl Streep.” So, you get a series of photographs that Lacombe has taken of Streep over the years.

Quick Pic: Levi Johnston Gives Sarah Palin The Stink Eye

And he also spills the beans. In the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, Levi Johnston says that there wasn’t much parenting in the Palin household, that Sarah wanted to keep Bristol’s pregnancy a secret and then adopt the child when it was born, and that she quit her job as governor so she could make…

Pity The Fool Who Edited Levi Johnston’s Piece For Vanity Fair

Sure, Levi Johnston is easy on the eyes, but can the hockey hunk write? We’re guessing probably not. Why, then, is Vanity Fair publishing a piece by Levi titled “Me And Sarah Palin” when there are real journalists who would die for a byline in the national magazine? Clearly, Levi is dumb as rocks, but…

Why Can’t Gisele Bundchen Sell A Magazine Cover?

Let me just preface this whole thing by saying that I would give my non-existent left nut to look like Gisele Bundchen. She’s about a thousand feet tall, skinny and has a bangin’ bod and I want in, so call me girl. That said, Gisele’s not the one I’d switch with if I was looking…

Where the Girls Aren’t: Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Doesn’t Include Many Women

Vanity Fair has posted the latest version of its annual New Establishment list. But, hey! Where are all the women?
