Style bible Vanity Fair are known for their extravagant photoshoot. Since 1992 they have also featured in their Vanities section a full-page portrait of an up and coming actress.
In September 2006, we tweaked the format to feature an up-and-coming actress in a 50s-style pinup shot. These shapely ingénues are on the cusp of fame or have just hit it big; they have names you need to know and faces you won’t have trouble remembering.
Here's a thumbnail view of all the actresses who’ve struck a playful pose in the retro style and a few samples (featuring respectively Summer Glau, Hayden Panettiere, Freida Pinto and Kristen Stewart). For Vanity Fair April 2008 issue, the girl is Summer Glau. I really like the concept, and the picture is gorgeous even if Summer looks very different to me in this picture.
Here are HQ scans of the picture published in Vanity Fair, April 2008 and the cover of the magazine.
