Su and I have been obsessed with the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue since its inception in 1995 (quick note: Oscar nominees and likely winners for best lead and supporting actress Julianne Moore and Patricia Arquette are two of the women featured on the first Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue cover). A line-up of the most beautiful, popular performers of the year is too good to resist, and we would eagerly await the tri-fold cover each year, fold it out (or in the past few years, refresh the page) and delight or dismay in the choices of cover-stars. There have been a few misses, especially over the past few years, but the majority of the issues are memorable and timeless. Inside each issue, portraits of celebrities are featured and photographed by popular photographers. I believe Annie Leibovitz has shot every cover, including this year’s. This year’s portfolio is shot by British portrait photographer Jason Bell and features only popular British actors (even though the cover definantly features three American actors). While I’m not personally familiar with a lot of the performers, and I’m not totally on board with some of the people featured, and of course I have an angrily scribbled list of people who were overlooked (“WHERE’S IDRIS?” Su exclaimed), the actual photos are gorgeous; it’s always so refreshing to see a talented photographer who isn’t especially well known receive a spotlight this big.

Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie Editorials

With the upcoming release of Maleficent, there’s a rush of new editorial images of its stars, Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie to go along with the so-cute-together-it-hurts promotional tour they did together in Europe last week. Elle Fanning photographs so beautifully, her natural blonde face glowing, and with her tall, slim frame, these high end designer clothes look perfect on her. The Angelina Jolie images are exquisite, highlighting her iconic face and steady, knowing gaze.
