Vanity Fair’s 2014 Hollywood issue has a cover slightly different from years past. Can you spot it, darlings?
Vanity Fair Magazine – The 2014 Hollywood Issue: Julia Roberts (August: Osage County), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), and Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), as well as Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), George Clooney (Gravity), Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station), Naomie Harris (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Brie Larson (Short Term 12), Chadwick Boseman (42), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), and Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color). Photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
Anything coming to mind?
We’ll say it: color. As in, “People of.” We don’t think we’ve ever seen so many black people on a Vanity Fair cover at one time. It’s refreshing, no? Let’s zoom in a little and get all judgey.
Idris and Chiwetel seem somewhat hilariously unimpressed with Julia’s vamping and camera hogging. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Annie Leibovitz set her up to be hated by half the women on the internet with this shot. George looks like he was pasted in from another picture entirely.
This is clearly the Very, Very Pretty section of the cover and even then, Lupita stands out. Hell, she owns the entire picture, from where we’re sitting. Michael B, though … we’ve seen better pictures of him.
Chadwick’s all, “Hey, I don’t know what’s up with these cranky ladies, but I’m having a blast.”
In the Unfortunate Facial Expression contest, it’s a tossup between Michael B Jordan’s, “”Scuse me. Just burped.” face, Brie’s “Could we get this over with? I have a splitting headache” face, or Lea’s “Everyone in this room is going to die” face.
