This year, 1 actresses posed for Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue photographed by Annie Leibovitz. And, as usual, whenever the famed shutterbug is involved, you can expect a perfect symphony of style. Keep reading to see which starlets made the the cover!
On this year’s issue, we see a mix of rising stars and industry staples like Lupita Nyong’o, Ruth Negga, Dakota Johnson, Aja Naomie King, both Fanning sisters, Greta Gerwig and Janelle Monae. And boy, do they look incredible!
“At this point, actresses have seen the best things before you ever have,” Vanity Fair fashion and style director Jessica Diehl said, which has meant bigger and bolder choices for the cover. And with such splashy, stunning options,“It’s become easier to get actresses excited about gowns,” she said.
And you’ll definitely get a thrill over what everyone is wearing on the cover. Emma Stone is a vision in a red dress from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first collection for Dior. Lupita Nyong’o wears a sequin and tulle confection from Alexander McQueen; Amy Adams is in a textured Haider Ackerman pale pink dress. A very pregnant Natalie Portman stuns in a Dior Haute Couture gown; Ruth Negga shimmers in a gold sequin Michael Kors Collection dress. Dakota Fanning is wearing layers and layers of tulle in a Carolina Herrera gown, while sister Elle Fanning is in a delicately beaded Dior number. Aja Naomie King looks every inch a movie star in an off-shoulder peony-colored Oscar de la Renta dress. Dakota Johnson stuns in Gucci, Greta Gerwig is decked in Marchesa and, finally, not to be outdone, Janelle Monae gives off some serious ’20s vibes in a Louis Vuitton long-sleeved dress.
Overall, they’re a vision of metallics, blush pink and magenta. “We wanted to do something light and beautiful,” VF’s style and fashion director said. Mission accomplished!
