White actors or white actresses?
Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue - Who will be on the cover this year?

Don't blame Vanity Fair for the prominence of white actors on its Hollywood Issue covers, blame Hollywood for making movies mostly about white people. If Vanity Fair featured black actors to the extent they should be represented in Hollywood films on its Hollywood Issue cover, it would be a huge lie, suggesting that Hollywood is making movies about black people to a commensurate degree.

Black celebrities are rarely on any mainstream magazine covers. Check out all the mags at the checkout - People, Intouch, US, etc. They very rarely cover any black celebs.

Only on DL would someone act as if this mattered at all to the actual serious problem of race relations in this country.

OP, I read somewhere that the VF cover is usually shot the day after the Globes because of the convenience of having somany stars in one place. That said, I hope it's a leading man cover. They did one its second year and the recent one was about five years ago (with Cruise, Hanks, Pitt, Damon, Nicholson, Samuel Jackson, Don Cheadle, Ewan McGregor and others)
Enough with the starlets, VF. You've done that one to death.

I want it to be Tom Ford again, since he is such a big Hollywood star.

Beyonce has made a few covers

I'm predicting an all-female cover, just because there aren't any hot *new* male stars. Who won big at the GG? Daniel Day Lewis, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, Cheristopher Waltz, all of them solidly middle aged.
Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried etc. look much more glamorous on magazine covers. (And if the really do go by the GG, I predict Jodie Foster will be included.)

I disagree, R10. The women you've named have each been on various actress Hollywood covers.
There would be absolutely nothing wrong with another established, leading man cover. Using the Globes attendees, including Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Affleck, Leo, Jamie Foxx, DDL, Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey, Jr, with a few others would make a great VF Hollywood cover.

No, blame magazine buyers. Covers with black faces on the cover sell fewer issues. Sad, but true.

Doesn't the cover tend to feature YOUNG Hollywood, with up-and-coming stars? I would predict people we've barely heard of yet (like Aaron Taylor-Johnson or Qu'Whatsername Wallis) rather than established stars on the cover.

Bullshit. The best-selling issue in Glamour magazine's history featured Katiti Kironde, a young black model. The top 2 best-selling issues of Vogue have featured Naomi Campbell (on the 100 year anniversary cover, with her other fellow supermodels) and Oprah Winfrey.

If you guess "White Actors & Actresses", you are correct!
The cover features Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone.
Quvenzhane Wallis and Kerry Washington are, predictably, in the overleaf.

Magazines like People, US, InTouch etc. cater to a different class or readers than the likes of Vogue which comprise a majority sophisticated and affluent urban readership. The celebrity rags are primarily read by middle-class and lower flyover fraus and the bottom line is they don't want to read about black celebrities. That's why you hardly ever see black celebs on the covers of the celebrity rags.

Vanity Fair is more on the level of Vogue than People.
