Alice Englert: Vanity Fair Vanities

Did you know Vanity Fair Magazine has a "second" cover? I didn't. I just found out yesterday and thought I would share it with you. For 20 years, the first page of Vanity Fair's Vanities section is considered to be the magazine's second cover. This page is meant to showcase emerging artists (actors, actresses, etc.). Artists who are just starting their career and are up & coming in their profession. I think it's awesome of them to feature rising stars!

I found all of this out, because of the blue & white dress you see here! HaHaHa I thought it was so cute and wanted to know who the designer was. It's by Oscar de la Renta and the yellow heels are by Christian Louboutin.

The young lady wearing it, is Alice Englert. She's 18 years old, was born in Sydney, Australia and is the daughter of Oscar winning writer director Jane Campion. She's in a movie called Beautiful Creatures (based on the acclaimed novel) that's to open on Valentine's Day. The trailer for the movie looks ok. As usual, I bet the book is better.

I'm mentioning all of this, to never know where a dress may take you! HaHaHa By searching for this dress, I learned about a section of a magazine, book, upcoming actress and movie.

  1. Happy Weekend doll!! Your post distracted me from cooking & cleaning, haha :)) I wouldn't mind ALL of these dresses, they are fabulous. Hadn't seen this shoot before, it's gorgeous. That last picture is marvellous, so pretty, yet strong too, I love it!! I also love your new (well new to me) message for comments & how the 'follow me's' comments will be deleted, I think a lot of people are getting to feeling like that. It gets tiresome! I hope you are having a gorgeous weekend & having fun :)) It's a wet one here for us, so I've just been busy doing the cleaning I put off from yesterday, haha :)) Take care doll xoxo

  2. i had no idea..these dresses all look gorgeous!

  3. Hi Kim, love your sense of style--that dress is so you. I think Oscar d can do no wrong, I would love to be photographed in one of his dresses! Love all her looks! And I did not know that about the first page, I will have to start paying attention to that now. I have been down with the flu again, so sorry I haven't been by much this week. Hope you are happy and healthy and having a great weekend!

    Happy Weekend Kim!

    xo, sam

  6. love the first one so girly and cute!!

  7. The blue dress is my favorite :)

  8. Oh wow I actually didn't know the vanities feature was considered the second cover. That's pretty awesome. That space has showcased some fabulous talent over the past two decades for sure. I still remember when I saw Anne Hathaway's and Bryce Dallas Howard's. :)

  9. Crazy how much you can find out when you investigate! Aha, I can see why that photo would cause that though - its a gorgeous little number, and I love how they mixed yellow heels with it.
    Also...thanks so much for the comment again Kim. I love reading your thoughtful input. Ha, and goodness, that boy really was a waste of your time! I'm amazed you got through that class. Thankfully I'm not in any classes with P, but our campus is SO small, so I'll be seeing him around...sigh. Ah well, every girl's gotta go through it, I guess its just my turn.
    Anyway, all of that to say THANKS! :)
