Vanity Fair Cover


Congratulations to the deserving actors that grace the cover of Vanity Fair’s annual ‘Hollywood Edition!’  It is noticeable that this years cover is the most diverse it has ever been.  Every year should reflect this diversity because the top actors and actresses are of different ethnicity!  A few of our Oscar darlings from 12 Years a Slave are featured as well as one of our biggest sex symbols and a young star on the rise!

In the past few years, the magazine has released this same issue, with absolutely NO black or ethnic actors.  Many folks responding by asking the publication if they simply did not believe that there were any black, latino etc. actors or actresses on the rise???

I guess, this year with all of the black people nominated this award season, they magazine decided to recognize that talent has no skin color.  Congratulations to those chosen.  Hopefully, this will be the new trend.
