Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Actresses Cover Is Just Right, with Range of Ages and Colors


So happy to see the new Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair.

The fold out cover features famed actresses who cover a range of ages and colors. They are also, smart, sexy, and talented. Photos are by the equally amazing Annie Leibovitz.

Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Charlotte Rampling, and Diane Keaton look phenomenal. Their resumes speak for themselves!

Viola Davis, Lupita Nyongo, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are gorgeous, award winners, and here to stay.

Jennifer Lawrence, Alicia Vikander, Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz, Saorise Ronan, and Brie Larson are also the Next Generation.

If all of these women show up at the annual Vanity Fair party on Oscar night, there will be pandemonium for sure. Kudos to VF for managing to get this group together in any fashion. (MIA: Kate Winslet, but I’m sure we’ll see her soon. Next year– Penelope, Salma, and who knows?)

P.S. No one can say Diane Keaton hasn’t stuck with her look. And it’s timeless.

Amazing photographs inside, too!
