Vanity Fair Embraces More Diversity Than Usual With New Hollywood Issue Cover Featuring Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, & More

Vanity Fair releases its annual Hollywood issue.

It's the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue!

And we're proud to report that it's a little more diverse than previous years.

Photos: SAG Awards Twitpics & Instagrams

The issue is known for almost always relegating actors of color into the foldout cover so they don't appear on the actual front page, but this time Viola Davis gets to share it with Jennifer Lawrence, Jane Fonda, and Cate Blanchett.

Progress, we guess.

The rest of the cover features Lupita Nyong'o, Brie Larson, Charlotte Rampling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Helen Mirren, Saoirse Ronan, and Diane Keaton.

There are also gorgeous individual portraits of all the women shot by Annie Leibovitz, which you can find in the gallery (above)!

But first, watch a clip of the women talking about their hoped-for legacies (below):

OK, seriously, how old is Helen Mirren?!

You'd NEVER guess the British actress was 70 years old based on her AH-mazing look (above)!!!

The Trumbo actress is nominated for three SAG Awards, and that itself isn't too bad, but she decided to put everyone to shame before the show and OWNED the red carpet tonight!!

Loving this Jenny Packham look — it's simple, form-fitting, elegant, and she pairs it perfectly with Stuart Weitzman shoes, a clutch, and jewelry.

More Helen Mirren for us, please!

How exciting!

It was a tight race for the award for Best Supporting Actress at Sunday's the Critics' Choice Awards. In an exciting turn of events, Alicia Vikander beat out award show vet Kate Winslet and snagged the coveted trophy.

We couldn't be more excited for Miz Vikander since she was an absolute scene-stealer in the 2015 flick The Danish Girl. Not to mention, the 27-year-old was trumped by the Steve Jobs actress at this year's Golden Globes. Oof!
