the elements of style

A big part of the fun of editing Vanity Fair is that, through our reporting and our events, I have the opportunity to meet actors I’ve long admired on-screen. This January, I met Selma Blair. As Julie Miller writes in her profile, Selma was a fashion muse before celebrity stylists were a thing; her innate style sense and strength of personality made her a natural fit for designers, from Karl Lagerfeld to Stella McCartney. Last year, Selma was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, after five years or so of enduring mysterious symptoms that she could neither explain nor get anyone to take seriously, including, for quite some time, herself. She is a working single parent who is now also a powerful voice for people coping with the practical challenges brought about…

Ryan McGINLEY“Miley Everlasting,” p. 60McGinley, who had a solo show at the Whitney at age 25, photographed Miley Cyrus outside an industrial sand plant in the Everglades, where the two listened to music, danced, and shared pictures of their pets. Cyrus once bought one of McGinley’s photos at a gala for aids research, outbidding Tom Ford. “I’ve always had a big place in my heart for her,” says the photographer.Zach BARON“Miley Everlasting,” p. 60“There are so few artists who actually command the attention of the country, and Miley Cyrus has been one of them for nearly a decade,” says Baron, a staff writer at GQ who toured Versace’s Miami mansion with the singer. “Everyone acts extremely strange and self-conscious the second they see her, which is always fascinating for a…

Did you come from an acting family?No, my mom’s an accountant and my dad is in shipping. But I was obsessed with movies.

Even when José Andrés isn’t in the kitchen at one of his 31 restaurants across the U.S. and abroad, the Spanish-born chef is still tackling hunger. The restaurateur and humanitarian routinely charges to the front lines of disaster relief, feeding millions of hurricane victims in places like North Carolina, Puerto Rico, and Haiti—and, earlier this year, unpaid federal workers in D.C. during the government shutdown. With his schedule at a rolling boil, the Nobel Peace Prize nominee has made his home in Bethesda, Maryland, a culinary sanctuary. This month, Andrés opens Mercado Little Spain, a sprawling Spanish-food hall in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards. ■…

Before Wayne Thiebaud began painting pie slices and lollipops in his now iconic Pop pastels, he sharpened his pen in the postwar years as a commercial illustrator. “We often had lipstick ads to make, and you had to draw them quickly, with a kind of advertising Esperanto visual language,” the 98-year-old says brightly, speaking by phone from Sacramento, after a morning round of tennis. For an artist drawn to commonplace objects, lipstick—like gumball machines, another Thiebaud muse—had a candy-colored charm, but it also brimmed with “unlimited potential,” he explains. Uncapped, with the pigment twisted up, the tubes resemble cathedral towers; arranged in single file, as in Lipstick Row (1964), they become soldiers in formation. But in Thiebaud’s vivid lineup, there’s no regimented uniformity (as was the case in 1943, when…
