Hollywood's hottest rookies have a few things in common: They're white and skinny.
Vanity Fair's cover story, "A New Decade, A New Hollywood," stars the fresh faces of 2010. The faces may be fresh but they're certainly not diverse -- and that's garnered a bit of attention.
Jezebel has compared the photo shoot to the golden age of Hollywood, when the must-have A-list female lead had a certain image:
She was the photographed wearing white, and her "All-American" good looks meant that she was a WASP or a fresh-faced farmgirl. Certainly not black, definitely not fat, and never both. Looking at the March 2010 issue, has anything changed? Even Evgenia Peretz's descriptions of the actresses -- "Ivory-soap-girl features," "patrician looks" "dewy, wide-eyed loveliness" -- reinforce the idea that a successful actress is a pretty, aristocratic-looking (read: white) actress.
Gossip website bossip.com asks, "You mean to tell us -- in all of Hollywood, they couldn't find one Black, Latina, Native-American, Asian, multi-racial actress on the rise worthy of this group??? SERIOUSLY???"
This is the 16th year Vanity Fair has published its Hollywood issue.
