Late last October, Vanity Fair seized one cavernous hanger and three studios at Los Angeles’s Milk Studios to celebrate 23 of the year’s most exciting names in film in the magazine’s 26th annual Hollywood cover and portfolio. For his first Hollywood Issue, photographer Ethan James Green and set designer Julia Wagner created a surrealist Route 66—part Technicolor, part Ed Ruscha—for a stylized voyage through some of cinema’s greatest genres. There were tractors, Escalades, cacti, and motorcycles, as well as more than 100 gowns, more than 400 pairs of shoes, and enough carats of fine jewelry to require nearly a dozen armed guards. “Traditionally the fashion has always been through the lens of glamour and the red carpet, and this year it was really fun to play dress-up and create all…

Mark HARRIS The Great Entertainers,” p. 112 “Interesting second and third acts are what really define stardom,” says the best-selling author of Pictures at a Revolution. “And if you’re as talented as the people on this issue’s cover, it makes sense that the deeper you get into your career, the more subtle and surprising your work will become.” Harris’s third book, a biography of Mike Nichols, will be published in late 2020. He is covering the Oscar race exclusively for Vanity Fair. Joy PRESS “Kenya Barris Levels Up,” p. 132 The V.F. television correspondent, who visited director and producer Kenya Barris on the set of his new show, #blackexcellence, says she never would have guessed that it’s also his first major acting role. “Watching Kenya riff on set with his screen wife, Rashida Jones, was…

the road to hollywood

I write this at the dawn of the ’20s, less roaring than blustering so far. The year 2020 always sounded so futuristic, and yet here we are, having closed out the Skywalker saga (and with it my childhood), and proved indisputably that Cats does not have nine lives at the box office. War drums beat, bush fires burn, and the great escapism of cinema offers respite and provocation alike. So here is our annual Hollywood Issue, celebrating a terrific year at the movies, and looking ahead to the next season in film. Every year V.F. travels the festival circuit from Sundance to Cannes, Telluride to Toronto, seeing movies and charting (and creating) buzz, and this time, as the slate of films unfolded, we were struck by the number of legends bestriding…

Lashana Lynch enters the James Bond legacy at a pivotal moment in its history: No Time to Die, the installment out in April, will be the first film in the almost 60-year-old, $7 billion franchise to land in a post-#MeToo world. The British actress, who broke out as Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, has shaken and stirred Hollywood’s modern classic, arriving as Nomi, the new 00 agent and rumored heir apparent as Daniel Craig takes his last Aston Martin ride. Here, some insights gleaned from a conversation with a woman undercover. SHE WAS BORN in London to Jamaican parents, and an early passion for R&B enticed her to drama school. “You can’t sing without acting and you can’t act without singing—it’s all sounds, accents, and emotion.” SHE FAVORED Brandy, Mariah Carey, SWV,…
