1 Amy FINE COLLINS “Tootsie’s Brand New Bag,” p. 82 “His virtuosic complexity as an actor will surprise us all,” says V.F. Special Correspondent Amy Fine Collins of Santino Fontana, who will star in the Broadway adaptation of Tootsie. “William Ivey Long, the king of transformations, was born to do the costumes.” Her book The International Best-Dressed List will be published this fall. 2 Art STREIBER “What a Trip!” p. 74 Streiber’s portraiture has appeared in Vanity Fair since 1994. His cinematic take on Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler was inspired by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby’s “Road” movies, and reflects the special bond between his two subjects. “They kept falling into characters,” he says, “forcing each other—and the crew—into fits of laughter.” 3 Stas KOMAROVSKI “The Music Man,” p. 96 Komarovski photographed Mark Ronson in the musician-producer’s…

“Mark Hamill, for the third time, your car is here …”—Overheard at the V.F. Oscar party The Chateau Mark Rozzo’s love letter to the Chateau Marmont is the most spot-on piece I’ve ever read about a place hell-bent on complicating any attempt to memorialize it [“Secrets of the Chateau Marmont,” Hollywood Issue]. I gave the Chateau the better part of my 20s as the manager of its restaurant. Everything that transpired there seemed both totally normal and sprinkled with fairy dust. Yet, in my attempts to recount those tales more than a decade later, every word seems unbelievable. As someone who called the Chateau “my home away from home” from 1980 until 2015, I loved your portrait of the grande dame of Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard. I would like to gently correct the former…

There are a lot of party venues being set up on every corner, but there is only one @VanityFair Oscar party. @TheCherieBomb @PaigeHoward and I are off to the @VanityFair Oscar party. Dad/Daughter Date! @RealRonHoward The car pickup line outside the @VanityFair Oscar party is kinda unreal. There’s a traffic cop with a loudspeaker and when a black car pulls up, he announces it to everyone. He just said: “Mark Hamill, for the third time, your car is here.” It’s like school pickup! @AmyKinLA Thank you @VanityFair for an unforgettable night. @MattBomer @VanityFair you sure throw a fun party @JessicaAlba…

the big ambitions of generation x

It’s happened twice in the last few months. I’m scrolling through my Twitter feed to assess how bonkers the news is that day—regular bonkers or extra-special bonkers—and I see a news graphic of generations listed in order by birth year: the Silent Generation, the baby-boomers, millennials, and post-millennials. The segment of the population aged 38 to 53, better known as Generation X, is M.I.A. Apparently, as Doc Brown once whispered in horror to Marty McFly, we’ve been erased from existence. The jokes write themselves: it’s classic Gen X to be overlooked, and even more classic Gen X to post ironic quips (on Twitter, a platform Gen Xers invented) about being totally fine with that. Whatever. Look us up and you’ll find us described as latchkey kids letting ourselves into broken homes…

opening act

Adria Arjona speaks with V.F.’s Krista Smith. You grew up in a creative, bi-lingual family. Tell me about your upbringing. All my memories are in Spanish, and it’s the language I’m most comfortable with. So when it comes to acting, I still translate a lot. My dad’s Guatemalan, my mom’s Puerto Rican. I never lived in either of those places, but they injected the culture in me. We were based in Mexico City until I was about 12 years old. My father [Ricardo Arjona] is a musician, so I really grew up on a tour bus, which was this magical place full of creativity and craziness. My childhood reminds me of Captain Fantastic, the Viggo Mortensen movie. Why did you pursue acting over music? I can’t sing for the life of me. Nobody would…
