Vanity Fair Celebrates Black Hollywood

Vanity Fair magazine finally recognizes notable black celebrities on its 20th Annual 'Hollywood' cover. The cover, beautifully photographed by Annie Leibovitz, features black stars who are not quite household names in mainstream America, but their faces are easily recognizable. The three-panel foldout cover features Oscar nominees 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). What? No Sandra Bullock?

Hollywood cover 2014

[Click image to enlarge]

This cover must have been a challenge for Leibovitz because light and dark complexions in the same photo requires complex lighting set ups.

Vanity Fair rankled critics last year by cutting black actors out of its 2013 'Hollywood' issue.

It’s a Vanity Fair magazine tale as old as time. All year long the men and women of Hollywood, many of them people of color, work hard to produce award worthy projects. Then Vanity Fair comes along to choose the cream of the crop for their annual Hollywood Issue. The list reads like a very well-known ‘who’s who,’ featuring the likes of Halle Berry, Ben Affleck and more, yet when it comes to the cover it seems only the cream of a certain color make the cut.

They try to appease the darker half with a spot on the cover’s gatefold (the part that folds into the magazine), but we all know that being seen on the actual cover, the one that will be seen on newsstands across the globe, is the only section that carries real weight. So once again, Vanity Fair dims the light that is Hollywood’s colored actors and actresses for another year and we are left to wonder, again … what the hell is the deal? Source

    I don't know who the better actor is, but I was just saying he deserves to be on the cover as much as Lupita because his resume is solid and he was the star of an Oscar nominated film just like her. Well not like her. She was a supporting actress. He was the star. Sorry I squabs for my The Wire guys. I don't care how many white womens they smash.

    Normally the hotel they choose to have the wedding at give wedding packages which are supposed to be discounted stays and Amenities, that is SUPPOSED to make it more affordable for others to pay for themselves, or give the money to the bride/groom to be to pay a portion. :shrug:

    Loving you,

    Normally you pay your own fare but they could possibly rent out some villas so there guest could stay.

    I have a wedding to go to in August in Jamaica. And we are a huge family and we pay our own fare but my family have rented additional villas out for some members.

On the day of the wedding I had a family friend to just put everything out as I wanted it. I saved a lot of money and 4 years later everyone is saying how much they enjoyed my wedding.

    @Lunv - Unless they balln, you have to pay to get there and lodging and food.

    Sometimes if it's planned far enough in advance, they will hire a Travel agent to book flights at discounted rate for lodging. Sometimes if they smart...they get a super rate for lodging. Depends on time of year and where.

    No the people in her wedding party got her something at the shower, but she was mad at the others that attended. Most of the people bought her things for the house and they gave it to her at the shower, but she thought that they were being rude for not buying her something for herself at the shower. But I'm sure the people was happy that they didn't waste there money on two gifts, they got divorced 4 months later.
