I love the Oscars, and I love magazines. So obviously, Vanity Fair's annual Hollywood issue is one of my favorite magazines of the year. This year's cover has just been released, and it looks gorgeous. The cover line is "Introducing the Fresh Young Stars of 2011", and features 11 young female stars who have had either their big breaks, or starring roles that gained a lot of momentum in the past year. The format is the classic Vanity Fair fold out cover, with Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain as the lucky four that grace the front cover. Also featured are Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling. The girls are all dressed in silky, pastel colored gowns, with their hair done in a very 1920's, old Hollywood glamour style. They are posing in a white/gray/chrome colored room, making the dresses, along with the fur wraps and bold lipstick, pop. Shot by one of my favorite photographers, Mario Testino, this has got to be one of my favorite Hollywood issue covers - ever. The colors and glamourous style is just so captivating. I can hardly wait to read the actual issue!
