EVENT STARZ Honor America to Me Vanity Fair & STARZ collaborated for a celebration honoring the STARZ Original series America to Me, ahead of a special screening at the LA Film Festival which was part of Participant Media’s 10-city social impact campaign rollout. Guests included series subjects, industry notables, along with students and teachers from the Los Angeles Unified School District. The poignant series follows students, teachers and administrators in suburban Chicago’s Oak Park and River Forest High School, one of the country’s most exemplary and diverse public schools, over the course of a year as they grapple with decades-long racial and educational inequities. Following the screening, Vanity Fair’s West Coast Editor Krista Smith moderated a compelling Q&A between Director Steve James, series subjects Jess Stovall and Ke’Shawn Kumsa, LAUSD Board Member…

editor’s letter

The Vanity Fair Hall of Fame dates back to the magazine’s original incarnation in the 1910s. It was a monthly feature that shone a spotlight on artists, writers, society figures, and other luminaries whom the editors felt worthy of recognition. The first installment, published in December 1913, included Anna Pavlova (“the greatest dancer of the age”), Rodin (“to see [him] at work in his atelier, is to see not merely art, but life itself, in the making”), and Arnold Henry Savage Landor (“the first European traveler to enter the Forbidden City of Tibet”). We like to think that the news moves more quickly than ever now, but that’s just the hubris of presentism. It would be hard to win that argument with a reader during, say, World War II or the…

opening act

V.F.’s Krista Smith speaks with Julia Garner, the Ozark and Maniac actress who stars in a new Bravo series based on a true-crime podcast. The Dirty John podcast, a thriller about a real-life scammer, became a phenomenon. Were you a fan before you landed a role in the TV adaptation? I heard they were making it into a series, so I listened to the whole thing in one day and did not stop—I’d never heard anything like it before! The series’s script is amazing, and Connie Britton and Eric Bana were attached, so it was a no-brainer for me. I play Terra, the daughter of the woman marrying “Dirty” John, who does not trust him. The ending is so crazy, which I don’t want to give away, but it has to do…
