31 year old Jake Benjamin Gyllenhaal is all beard-up on the September cover from Details. We’d like to give him a shaving cream. Just go shave, Jake!

Graydon Carter edited monthly magazine, Vanity Fair, have some returning/repeating and new cover stars this year.
Angelina Jolie landed her second consecutive cover slot (last year she graced the August issue) for the magazine this October with a stunning shot by photographer duo with the most campaign works in Fall Winter 2011 season, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Johnny Depp landed not one, but two covers this year: January issue photographed by Annie Leibovitz and November issue snapped by Terry Richardson.
Emma Stone (who’s featured on the foldout cover in March 2010) is landed her solo cover this year for August issue wearing red and white bikini from Marc by Marc Jacobs and lensed by the famed Patrick Demarchelier. It is definitely one of my favourite from Vanity Fair this year along with Annie Leibovitz‘s April issue with Robert Pattinson and Norman Jean Roy photographed March cover with Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and James Franco.
The gorgeous Scarlett Johannsson (remember her naked cover with Keira Knightley and Tom Ford for March 2006 issue?) was photographed by Mario Sorrenti for December while the sensational teen pop singer Justin Bieber (his first VF cover I suppose) was covered in lipstick stains in February front page snapped by Art Streiber.
The remaining covers are the returning Jennifer Lopez (in Gucci) by Mario Testino for September; topless Rob Lowe (his first cover?) for May and the striking first timer Katy Perry for June, both are photographed by Annie Leibovitz; and my least favourite, Prince William and Kate Middleton by Mario Testino for July issue.

For their Annual Hollywood Issue (this years remarks their 17th edition), Vanity Fair gathered some of current hottest, young and most talented movie stars : Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Jame Franco (Hathaway and Oscar nominee Franco are co hosting this years Oscar!), Jennifer Lawrence (this year Oscar nominee), Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg (third this year’s Oscar nominee in this cover!), Mila Kunis, Robert Duvall (he’s NOT young and NOT a new actor, why is he on the cover???), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield (remember how he was struggling to “introduced” The Social Network on this year’s Golden Globe?), Rashida Jones (in Tom Ford), Garrett Hedlund and Noomi Rapace (she almost unrecognizable here!!). This cover was photographed by contributing photographer Norman Jean Roy which they usually hired Annie Leibovitz. Where is she by the way…
“We wanted to evoke the glamour of 1930s Shanghai, an era of smoky, alluring elegance. We had the gentlemen looking dashing in black tie, whilst the ladies were radiant in spring’s gowns—from Gucci to Yves Saint Laurent—and glittering with diamonds from Chanel and other arbiters of glamour.” says fashion and style director Jessica Diehl.

Rumour has it that they will have Natalie Portman on the cover but apparently there is no Ms.Portman
