Vanity Fair’s 2016 Hollywood Issue Is All About ‘Hollywood’s Fiercest’ Ladies
And we’re silently screaming Yaaasss, queens to ourselves over it.
Vanity Fair’s super diverse and super gorgeous cover, shot by the one and only Annie Leibovitz, features some of the most powerful and inspiring women in Hollywood for its annual February Hollywood Issue. We’ve got cover girl regular Jennifer Lawrence and fellow Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, the gorgeous Viola Davis (who, last year, became the first African American woman to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series), Brie Larson, who’s been winning all the awards this season for her emotional, chill-inducing role in Room, and many more.
All five of this year’s Best Actress Academy Award nominees are included in the Vanity Fair portfolio (Saoirse Ronan and Charlotte Rampling in addition to Larson, Lawrence and Blanchett), in addition to Lupita Nyong’o, Jane Fonda, Rachel Weisz, Helen Mirren, Alicia Vikander, Diane Keaton, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
The ladies spoke to the magazine about their legacies in the video below. Blanchett asked, “God, am I that old?” and Lawrence laughed, “I don’t know, pfft, acting,” while Davis commented, “A sense of integrity for my voice.”
Vanity Fair’s newest issue is available on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles, and on the iPhone, Kindle, and other devices, on Thursday, February 4, and nationally on Monday, February 8.
