The new issue of Vanity Fair hit newsstands today, featuring its annual Annie “Skid Row” Liebowitz photographed ‘Hollywood Issue.’ This year: up-and-coming young ladies of all races and creeds. Just a glorious rainbow of womanhood. The neat thing about this photo is how INTERESTING everyone looks. Just very cool, very different. Anyway, this week’s Videogum Caption Contest is going to be a lot of fun I’m sure, because there are so many different characters to choose from! And each of them is so unique and different from the others in every way! If you click on the image above, you can see a bigger version of the cover, which will be useful in getting inside your characters’ heads. The winning caption will receive special placement in this week’s Monsters’ Ball, which is a veritable who’s who of Young Videogum.

    • As far as non-pictorial comments go, this is TBS? Very poignant (That’s how that goes right?) and cannot be topped, but kid, Michael Cera got this shit on John LOCKE (Also, how that goes, yes?).

  46. I just wanted to point out that this photo would’ve been a suitable replacement for the cover art on the last

    . Except that one had some boys in it. I think.

  47. 90 toes, 18 eyes, 9 mouths, and 1 collective dirty feeling for letting that casting director teabag you.

  48. Is that a hot dog you have there? If so, we are happy to see you.

  49. Do any Videogum photo buffs know what filter it is that Annie uses to make it look like none of her subjects were actually at the same photo shoot together?

    • I don’t know what’s more shocking: that Perez Hilton is a Videogum commenter or that I routinely laugh at his posts.

      • Hmm? I was going for petulant outsider who has a permanent marker, their junior high yearbook and the mistaken impression that tearing down others is not only a healthy way to deal with their own insecurities but also sublimates their desperate need to be heard…so?success?

    • I am giving you an NEA grant to continue your important work. Forever.

  61. 29 feels older all the time… I think I only recognize 3 of them! Is there a Fanning in the picture? Is that Dakota on the left? I still feel like Amy Smart is a young new actress…

  68. I like it. It’s got that “what a cruel world let’s toss ourselves in the abyss” type ambience.

  69. I just thought about this, in all seriousness, wheres the girl from Precious. She was definitely a break out star of 2010. I can’t imagine why they didn’t get in touch with her people.

I only got three pairs of shorts and Hepburn socks, well I guess we can just give them some bland dresses and we will hide their feet so no one notices their lack of Hepburn socks.”

  98. “What am I doing in this photo? Because I don’t recognize any of these other bitches.”
