Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue Lacks Diversity


For those of you that think diversity is an old old wooden ship you would be wrong. Diversity is about mixing it up. Having some variety. A change of pace. Get it? I don’t think Vanity Fair does.

The March cover of said publication is all about the promising actresses of new Hollywood… which turns out to be a slew of “skinny white girls.” Hmmm. I am reminded of a time I walked into a house party in San Diego and I realized that all attendees was a blond Caucasian. I’ve never been a fan of walking into a room with only one kind of person in it.

A blog written by Joanna Douglas points out that there are numerous actresses of other weights and races that could have graced this cover including “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe and Zoe Saldana of "Avatar" and "Star Trek. Let’s hope that Vanity Fair’s cover is only a small detour from all modern efforts towards more diverse magazines, movies, fashions and parties.

  1. No doubt, the biggest industry in the world, almost a religion the hollywood life is, fine people, great people, ugly people, better people, you can find ANYTHING in that ”world”, a world that lives with the help of ”normal” people, an average ones, without the simple guys, that industry would be nothing…
