Vanity Fair’s 19th Hollywood Portfolio, shot by Bruce Weber, includes 75+ stars, from Tom Hanks and Amy Adams to Quvenzhané Wallis and Eddie Redmayne. The cover stars Ben Affleck, Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper. VF, wanting to do something different for this year's Hollywood edition, call it "a celebration of the friendships that thrive among the people who call it home."

The collection of photos is titled "Bruce Weber's Adventures in Hollywood," and includes a number of historic Hollywood locations. VF's Bob Colacello describes Weber's work as "more Cinecittà than Disney, a place where Old Hollywood glamour is filtered through the lens of postwar Italian neo-realism, and Norman Rockwell wholesomeness is given an antic Fellini edge.”
