Vanity Fair & Annie Leibovitz

With all my busy times recently I completely forgot to share these lovely Vanity Fair pictures with you from the March issue … and now here we are already well into the month of May!?! Surely there’s an appropriate saying I could reference here such as, ‘better late than never’ or ‘old news is good news’? Anyway, enough with the excuses and justifications …

I’m sure I’ve written about my love for Annie Leibovitz’s photographic works before, but so much of her work is beautiful that I feel it warrants repeating. I know a lot of people who don’t like her portraiture style, but I absolutely adore the distinctive look and feel of her photography and how easy it is to identify photographs taken by her.

In the lead up to the 2010 Academy Awards, the March issue of Vanity Fair included some beautiful Leibovitz photos in the feature article about the up-and-coming Hollywood cover girls. I think the individual personality of each of the girls is captured perfectly in her images. From the adorable Carey Mulligan, through to the sultry Kristen Stewart, on to the old-world elegance of Abbie Cornish, and then the sweet determination of Mia Wasikowska, there is a beautiful mix of styles captured through the lens.

My favourite would have to be the gorgeous shot of Carey Mulligan (pictured to the far left below) … she has such a lovely cheeky grin in this photograph, almost as if she’s had to stop herself from giggling … cute!

I’ll stop myself from discussing at length the gorgeous gowns the girls are wearing, although I can probably sum up my thoughts best in a single word … swoon.

    Vanity Fair isn’t my cup of tea, but Annie Leibovitz photography is amazing. Ashamed to mention, but I’ve also been following her financial issues with interest also.

    The big kid in me also appreciated the disney ones she took.

      Hi Andrew – I’ll let you in on a little secret … Vanity Fair is rarely my cup of tea either. I generally only ever buy it for the gorgeous photo editorials! 🙂

      Glad to hear I’m not the only one who loves a bit of Annie Leibovitz photography!! 🙂
