16 Years, 15 Beautiful Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue Covers...


Since 1995, Vanity Fair has been giving us a Hollywood Issue, usually around March or April.

They usually feature a group of actors or actresses that they thought made a big impact in the world of film the year before.

All covers have been shot by the popular and very good Annie Leibovitz.

All covers show us the faces of great talent that has graced the silver or the small screen.

You will notice that some of these faces are still relevant now while others have faded into obscurity.

Which one of these group photos is your favorite?

1. 1995 (Hollywood Highest - Class of 2000)

Jennifer Jason Leigh, Uma Thurman, Nicole Kidman, Patricia Arquette, Linda Fiorentino, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore, Angela Bassett, and Sandra Bullock.

I thought it was a fitting tribute of some sorts to have this post becauseSandra just won her Oscars.

Tim Roth, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Rapaport, Stephen Dorff, Johnathon Schaech, David Arquette, Will Smith, and Skeet Ulrich.

Oh, there was a time when Stephen Dorf was so hot.

I wonder where he is now.

It's funny that only he and Leo are affected by the windy effect.
