     Hello gorgeous! Or should I say that eleven times over? Vanity Fair's March Hollywood issues are fast becoming like the highly coveted September issue glossies and this year's cover (and trifold spread) proves its iconography. 2011's spread had that old Hollywood feel to it (click here to see that Fashion Blog post) with crisp tuxedoes, glamorous jewels, gorgeous floor length gowns with super sexy cuts and leg slits (I can still distinctly remember that dress that Oliva Wilde wore with that ultra revealing leg slit! Oww!) This year's cover excludes the Y chromosome, a touch more soft, and ultra feminine. The 2012 cover of Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue features Hollywood's up and coming female talent in a 20s/30s Jazz Age setting as styled by Jessica Diehl and photographed by renowned photographer Mario Testino. The entire shoot had a boudoir feel to it with the young actresses clad in pastel color gowns of satin and feathers. I always like reading this issue before the watching the Oscars, because it profiles all of the nominees and the new fresh talent, including all of the women on this cover. I'm so excited that all of these beautiful, talented, and most deserving women have made it on the cover and I can't wait to see how the rest of their promising careers pan out. How beautiful does Rooney Mara look on this cover? Her black hair (kept that way for her role as Lisbeth Salander in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series) is so 1920s flapper! Who is your favorite cover girl?And don't forget to tune in to watch the Oscars on Sunday, February 26! 

Love, KB
