Lupita Nyong’o! Chiwetel Ejiofor! Idris Elba! George Clooney! Julia Roberts! on Vanity Fair Magazine’s 2014 Hollywood Issue Cover



Vanity Fair Magazine - February 2014 - BellaNaija 01

More actors of colour are on Vanity Fair Magazine‘s 20th Annual Hollywood Issue unlike anyone before.

Is this a star studded cover or what? For 2014, the Vanity Fair team got it right by mixing top Hollywood talents with rising actors…and the finished product is dazzling.

Julia Roberts may want to rethink her pose next time. She sits on the lap of Idris Elba, who everyone in the Federal Republic of BellaNaija Nation, knows has the most fans here. You don’t want scary e-mails Julia…just saying :).

Also on the cover are British-Nigerian actor Chiwetel Ejiofor and his 12 Years a Slave co-star Lupita Nyong’o who sizzles in gold as well as George Clooney, Jared Leto, Hollywood’s new hearttrob Michael B. Jordan, Naomie Harris, Brie Larson, Chadwick Boseman, Margot Robbie and Léa Seydoux.

Check it out!

    Of all the men there why did they choose to position my favorite actress ever on my laps of my dream lover? Why? why? why? Ogini? Julia Roberts i love love u. But Idris is a no no no. Nice picture though. So proud that Africa was represented, and a Nigerian was there too. Nice

    Julia’s legs needs their own shot…wow…
    I love how playful she is and i know i will fight to be on idris laps too…
    I mean…
    Chiwetal and idris…that picture of two of heart skipped bits…father forgive me for I have committed the sin of lust…
    Lupita – No words…She killed it, resurrected it and murdered it again…

    The frame with Julia looks like where the fun is and then the transition to the new and upcoming. The photoshoot looks amazing and it seems like they had loads of fun. This is how hollywood plays up hollywood… Our industry can take a cue from this… AMVCA’s let your creativity shine oh!
