…The Vanities Girls are beautiful?

Vanities Girls

In September of ’06, Vanity Fair changed the format of their opening to the Vanities section to feature a full-page, 50s-style pinup of an up-and-coming star.

    These shapely ingénues are on the cusp of fame or have just hit it big; they have names you need to know and faces you won’t have trouble remembering.

Thankfully, they’ve taken those beautiful photos and turned them into an online slideshow for your viewing pleasure.

…Disney’s advertising is magical?

Disney hired Annie Leibovitz for their Year of a Million Dreams campaign, and the results are simply stunning. Rather than relying on the usual cartoon character theme that Disney is famous for, Leibovitz opted for a little more upscale approach. The ads, to be shown in mags such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ and The New Yorker, feature celebrities dressed up as classic Disney characters, with a definite eye towards the magical. Current images include Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella, Beyonce as Alice in Wonderland, and David Beckham as Sleeping Beauty’s Prince, with 10 to 12 more waiting to be shot. It’s an interesting approach for Disney, but one that will probably work well for convincing parents that it’s again time to visit the happiest place on Earth.
