It took decades for Vanity Fair to have a “Diversity” Cover like this and make history in Hollywood - a fanciful effort made up by the new faces of young and talented people working in Hollywood and around the World.

The work of the great Mexican cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki is magic, pure gold. Congratulations on this excellent work of art.

The diverse talent in front of the camera is integrated by:

Yalitza Aparicio, “Roma.”
Chadwick Boseman, “Black Panther.”
Timothée Chalamet, “Beautiful Boy.”
Elizabeth Debicki, “Widows.”
Henry Golding, “Crazy Rich Asians.”
Nicholas Hoult, “The Favorite.”
Regina King, “If Beale Street Could Talk.”
Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Saoirse Ronan, “Mary Queen of Scots.”
Tessa Thompson, “Sorry to Bother You.”
John David Washington, “BlacKkKlansman.”

It is always fascinating to know a little more about the lives of the stars. 

Starting with the new Superhero Chadwick Boseman from “Black Panther.” He was a terrific basketball player and graduated from Howard University in Washington D.C. Destiny got him close to Denzel Washington, who paid his tuition at the British American Dramatic Academy at Oxford University in London.

The star of “Roma,” Yalitza Aparicio, was a kindergarten teacher when she got the part while accompanying her pregnant sister to the auditions in her hometown in Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca, Mexico. Aparicio’s natural performance earned her a surprising Best Actress Oscar nomination.

The story of Henry Golding is fascinating as well. He was born in Betong, Sarawak, Malaysia, and went to Surrey, England, at age eight. He returned to Kuala Lumpur, where he started his acting career as a host of a top-notch travel TV show. Then he got cast to play this multi-millionaire in the box-office smash “Crazy Rich Asians.”

Often, Vanity Fair has photoshoots of models from different backgrounds. In this Hollywood historical issue, the fashion-forward magazine had a diverse group of Oscar-nominated actors and Golden Globe winners in front of the lenses of one of the best photographers in the World.

The 25th Hollywood Issue - Moving Pictures was photographed by three-time Oscar winner Emmanuel ‘Chivo’ Lubezki and styled by Samira Nasr.
