Paula Patton, Adepero Oduye, & More Get GLAM For VANITY FAIR's Hollywood Issue

​ ​ ​ ​

The famed annual Hollywood Issue of Vanity Fair is out.  And it's a 3-page pullout of the ladies deemed to be Hollywood's IT girls of the moment.  This year, 2 YBF chicks are featured. Check out Paula Patton and Adepero Oduye making their VF debuts inside...

Mission Impossible 4 star Paula Patton (left) and Pariah star Adepero Oduye in their sexy satin dresses joined several actresses for the Old Hollywood (20's and 30's) themed glammed up Vanity Fair spread, shot by Mario Testino

The Art Deco set was designed to evoke the all-white, Jazz Age interiors of English decorator Syrie Maugham and to resemble a sexy boudoir.

Other glamourous actresses--Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Elizabeth Olsen, Shailene Woodley, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins, and Brit Marling--are featured across the 3 panels as well.

Brooklyn native Adepero (standing) is an Ivy League graduate of Cornell University, and has theater credits spanning many stages like the Yale Repertory Theatre.  Her movie, Pariah, which also stars Kim Wayans, was a hit amongst the independent-movie-going crowd.  Pariah is all about a Brooklyn teen juggling conflicting identities while risking friendship, heartbreak, and family in a desperate search for sexual expression.

Here's the behind the scenes footage from the cover shoot:

This ADVERTISEMENT pretending

This ADVERTISEMENT pretending to be a comment is highly offensive. The "black" speak or whatever you're trying to do here is on some BS. No one speaks this way. Stop cluttering comment space and PAY FOR A REAL ADVERTISEMENT. Natasha should search for and delete this kind of crap.

Wonderful! Adepero played the hell out of her role in "Pariah." If you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth a look. Kim Wayans really came out of her shell as well.
