Vanity Fair’s 25th Annual Hollywood Issue Is Here — and It’s Refreshingly Diverse

Jones, nevertheless, is sticking to custom because the journal drops its 25th annual ‘Hollywood Issue‘ for 2019. Chadwick Boseman, Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Nicholas Hoult, Yalitza Aparicio, Rami Malek, Regina King, John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Tessa Thompson and Henry Golding get the honors this year, styled by Samira Nasr and photographed by Emmanuel Lubezki, who makes for a refreshing alternative to Annie Leibovitz (especially considering last year’s unforgivable Photoshop blunder).

Despite the various cowl topics, don’t count on our discussion board members to make a mad sprint to the newsstand. “This cover is standard. Nothing feels special. All the poses seems so calculated and forced,” commented TaylorBinque.

“This looks like a bunch of extremely bored people on a film set who have been waiting hours for their call to work,” tigerrouge chimed in.

“Tiresome. Same boring, pretentious group portrait. Where are the obnoxious Photoshop bloopers?” mocked dfl-Zero01.

“I have never heard of most of the people here (my fault, not theirs), and can’t help but feel this was a bit forced,” Srdjan complained.

In settlement over the casting was discussion board member Karl Boucher. “WTF, where is Glenn Close, Lady Gaga, Olivia Colman?” he requested.

Benn98 wrote, “The main cover is ruined by the two males and that odd pose they’ve forced on Saoirse. As for the actual image, it just reinforces the idea that however much this editor is trying to modernize VF, the core of it is steeped in tradition. You can get rid of Annie Leibovitz, but you can’t get rid of her style or signature!”

“I feel that with this lineup, the cover would’ve been a bit more relevant a year ago,” disapproved mikel.
