Thompson on Hollywood

A swatch of pale loveliness, here are this year's Vanity Fair photos of Hollywood ingenues. I believe the mag has done Kristen Stewart (Twilight) and Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!), at least, before. Last week, Stewart was in Sundance supporting The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys; Rebecca Hall stole Nicole Holefcener's Please Give at Sundance; Mia Wasikowska was also there, starring as one of the Kids Are All Right. She plays the title role in Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland, which should break her out even more.

Here's the Vanity Fair story.

[Annie Leibovitz photo from left: Stewart, Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), probable Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan (An Education), Seyfried, Hall, Wasikowska, Emma Stone (Zombieland), Evan Rachel Wood (Across the Universe), and Anna Kendrick, who should also nab a supporting actress nom on Tuesday for Up in the Air.]

    Are you all serious? Had they put Gabby on the cover, with only one movie under her belt, people would be outraged that they "threw in a token black girl." I'm proud of Vanity Fair for not caving to forced diversity. People are people, its time we stop focusing on race.

    Fashion Designer John Robert Holbrook ( J.R. Holbrook ) selects the 5 best and worst dressed celebrities that attended the 26th annual Sundance Film Festival January 21-31, 2010.

    5 BEST

    1 RYAN REYNOLDS - This man has golden era movie star style and looks! Why is he married again? He could be the new Warren Beatty!

    2 KATIE HOLMES - Elegant, slender, talented and TALL! I wondered if she smacks Tom around? Her film "The Romantics" was a lot of fun! Katie's game is ON!

    3 JOAN RIVERS - She is the original funny girl and style guru! She is a hard act to follow. She is the reason I started The Sundance Fashion Review in 2002!

    4 MARISA TOMEI - A graceful, ageless beauty that has great taste. Her clothing brought out her beautiful skin, hair and smile!

    5 JESSICA ALBA - The Sundance home run hottie! Amazing coat over a warm, elegant casual outfit! Loved it! Her film, "The Killer Inside Me", traumatized me for days!

    5 WORST

    1 ADRIAN GRENIER - The line from "Devil Wears Prada" came to mind when I saw him, "I asked for clean, athletic and smiley and they sent me DIRTY, TIRED and PAUNCHY! He acts to big for his britches and there are many examples of his bad manners throughout the festival!

    2 BILL GATES - He is the worst dressed billionaire! He was dancing at a house party trying to be hip and cool and it was totally not natural for him. The girls at the party were laughing at him and it took him right back to high school! Sorry Billy.
    ** On an amazing note, Bill Gates donated 10 billion dollars today to immunize the world children! Awesome!

    3 KRISTEN STEWART - She looked great in the movie "The Runaways" but her personal clothing choices were off. She was always hiding her face from the crowd like a vampire. I guess that is what happens when you have a shy actress portray a fearless musician!

    4 TILDA SWINTON - I would have liked to have seen her in more feminine clothing to offset her extremely masculine features.

    5 MARK RUFFALO - Guy-rilla! Did you make your own clothes on your family compound!? He looks like one of the cast members of "BIG LOVE"! Pull it together!!!

    Fergie & Josh Duhamel - All I can say is GLAMOROUS! They are the new Brangelina!

    Tommy Lee Jones & Chris Cooper - A lot of talent that looks TIRED! I did love their film "The Company Men"!

    I've never seen a single one of these actresses in a movie. I've never even heard of some of them. (If they would only start co-starring with Jason Statham that would all be corrected, of course.)

    Yeah 31 is like REALLY REALLY old. She should be a old folks home by now

  • mary | February 1, 2010 10:53 AMReply

    Zoe Saldana is 31 years old, so she isn't young actress anymore.

    On the other hand.... I would think that Gabourey Sidibe should be on the cover.

    double double, animal style, fries, shake

  • Dugan | February 1, 2010 9:46 AMReply

    Someone feed these poor girls a hot dog or two.

  • jl | February 1, 2010 8:41 AMReply

    @Alan @Sergio ... yeah, it's like it's "tea time" at the polo club.

    Vanity Fair, you disappoint me once again.

  • Alan Sharpe | February 1, 2010 7:59 AMReply

    Where's Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe, from "Precious"? What a joke -- ZERO credibility, Vanity Fair.

  • Sergio | February 1, 2010 7:15 AMReply

    They couldn't find ONE black actress suitable for the cover? Like Zoe Saldana who's been in two of the biggest hit movies of the year?? Give me a F______G break!
