So you're a queer woman at the turn of the century--the last century, that is. You're hemmed in by patriarchy and strict moral codes. And yet you have this transgressive fire in you.

Technically, the U.S. government could reopen for business, panda cam and all, before this article even earns a tweet. But the odds are against it. Neither party wanted this shutdown--because no one knew how it would play out. At the same time, both parties knew, deep down, that it had to ...

During Sunday night's Screen actors guild Awards, viewers may have noticed that every presenter on stage was a woman. That's because, as SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris told Vanity Fair, the ceremony was trying to celebrate women specifically, in the era of #TimesUp and #MeToo. But after ...
When Whoopi Goldberg stepped on the stage near Columbus Circle in New York City on Saturday, wearing woven-rainbow sneakers and a white jacket featuring a yin-yang symbol made of black and white cats, she couldn't see the end of the crowd before her--and that made her happy.

Though 2017's movies are still mired in the long process of honoring and snubbing and all that, it is technically 2018, which means that a whole new crop of films loom on the horizon. Where better to get a sampling of what the year has to offer than high in the mountains of Utah, where the Sundance Film ...
Donald Trump kicked off the new year like any president would: by rage-tweeting about the news media. "I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR," the president tweeted on the second day of 2018. "Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in ...
A more updated take came in this Vanity Fair piece on Washington Post-Times competition in covering Trump.

As for Shafer, "Obviously, one family member can't sell the paper on his ...
When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked on Wednesday to discuss ongoing government-funding negotiations, she implied that Donald Trump's desired outcome was perfectly obvious. "We would like to get a budget deal done--a two-year budget deal, a clean budget deal, ...

Eric Trump appeared on Sean Hannity's program Tuesday to help chastise White House reporters. What did those meddling kids get up to now? They asked Donald Trump's doctor about the president's health. "This is actually-- It's insane [. . .] Does he watch too much TV? Does he eat too much ice cream?

Those offices, sources said, belonged to T.W.C. president and chief operating officer David ...
When he doesn't like a story, he will occasionally write out his critique, by hand, on the printout, and have it mailed to the offending publication, as Vanity Fair can attest. Back in 2011, Trump wrote that he would dictate his tweets to his executive assistant. More recently, however, the task has fallen to ...

Rupert Murdoch suffered a serious back injury while vacationing on his son Lachlan's yacht in the Caribbean earlier this month, three sources familiar with the incident told Vanity Fair.

Serena Williams gave Vogue the inside deal with her wedding and, now, photos of her and her new baby girl (lest we forget, Vanity Fair photographed her pregnant, memorably in the altogether, for its cover last August).

Scarlett Johansson's reign as Black Widow began back in 2010. She made her debut in Iron Man 2, stealthily fighting her way into the Avengers franchise that would soon come to dominate Hollywood. For years, core members of the team got spin-off movies--including Thor and Captain America.

Lee Carter doesn't exactly look like the kind of guy who should be giving Republicans nightmares.

He had never run for office until last year, ...

Vanity Fair critic Jordan Hoffman summarized this fruitless attempt, writing that the film's "world-building is so inept that there is zero point in scrutinizing any symbolism beyond the obvious."

If you think your mind is going to explode, what with all the irrational madness of the moment, you're not alone.

The fit of soul-searching provoked by Donald Trump has, at times, seemed overwrought. "We're toxic in the Midwest, and we're toxic in the South," Representative Tim Ryan, the young backbencher from Ohio, warned on November 30, 2016, challenging Nancy Pelosi for the leadership of the Democratic ...
Back in 2016, J.J. Abrams pulled off the impossible when his production company, Bad robot, announced and released the surprise sequel 10 Cloverfield Lane, directed by Dan Trachtenberg. The trailer seemingly dropped out of the sky that January, catching moviegoers off guard. How did one of the ...

As allegations of sexual misconduct piled up against Matt Lauer, a few details grabbed especially rapt focus.
