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.

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.
