@vanityfairlondon JEWELLERY Lucky Stars Dior’s Rose des Vents collection was a hit when it first launched as a single, reversible disc on a fine chain, but the latest iteration as a choker is on a whole new level. All the favourites are here—malachite, lapis lazuli, onyx, turquoise, tiger’s eye, cornelian, and pink opal, expertly jumbled with diamonds to create one harmonious, hardstone whole. dior.com JEWELLERY Prized Pendants The snake has long been a symbol of healing and protection, among other things, and Boucheron’s Serpent Bohème collection is an ode to this creature, reduced to a stylised snake’s head. These new pendant earrings from the grand Parisian maison do double duty: they are convertible in a simple twist from a statement-making shoulder-grazing length to a sweeter three-drop size, in white or yellow gold, fully pavé-set with white…

On Sunday, March 15, Los Angeles announced the first phase of a stay-at-home order across the city. The following morning, Vanity Fair was scheduled to photograph Schitt’s Creek star Catherine O’Hara in L.A. Our photo team was suddenly confronted with two pressing questions: When could the shoot take place? And how? Before long, when and how became standard prompts for more than just photo shoots. In collaboration with some of photography’s most creative minds, V.F.’s June issue features portraits taken by drone and from more than 10,000 miles away through screens—fitting, perhaps, for an issue devoted to television. Throughout this magazine’s history, photographic portraiture has been an inherently intimate enterprise: photographer, subject, and stylist collaborating in person, in real time. To retain that intimacy in a moment of social distancing requires…

editor’s letter

Months ago, we began planning a June issue that would showcase the outsize footprint of television—streaming and network, scripted and unscripted—in our culture. In the weeks since early March, TV has only become more important. It’s no longer a diversion; it is as real as life gets, whether we are watching Governor Andrew Cuomo’s daily PowerPoint presentations or bingeing Unorthodox or having videoconference dinners with our families. (Don’t bother tuning in to the president; you’ll learn more from the label on your spray can of Lysol, if you’re lucky enough to still have one.) So we kept our plan for this edition, which features a special issue-within-an-issue devoted to all things TV, edited by Jeff Giles and Hillary Busis. But like everything else this spring, it evolved in ways we had…

Flip OUT As the all-American heartbeat of Cheer, JERRY HARRIS is the feel-good breakout we need In the Netflix docuseries that follows the cheer squad of Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, 20-year-old Harris became a breakout star for his indefatigable jubilance and characteristic “mat talk”—shouts of encouragement to pump up teammates. Here, the beloved underdog turned Hollywood hero shares quarantine motivation, memories from his first Oscar night, and what’s next for Navarro. HIS PASSION began “at a very young age. We never had the most money and I lost my mom at 16, but cheer has become my family. It has made me the person I am today.” WHEN NETFLIX first arrived at Navarro, some teammates turned it on for the cameras—“girls wanted makeup, guys wanted a haircut”—but not Harris: “I wasn’t going to…
