Annie Leibovitz captured Vanity Fair’s hottest up and coming actresses for its annual “Hollywood Issue.”

The cover has caused much controversy as their isn’t any women of colour included in the line up.

People are questioning the exclusion of Gabby Sidibe – who does appear in this issue – and Zoe Saldana – who has appeared on the cover of the 2008 Hollywood Issue.

Abbie Cornish, Kristen Stewart and Carey Mulligan make the cover, whilst Amanda Seyfried (wearing Rupert Sanderson Saddled O’s brogues, Rebecca Hall, Mia Wasikowska, Emma Stone, Evan Rachel Wood, and Anna Kendrick make up the fold.

I love the relaxed nature of the cover, but I love the shot of the actresses below wearing nude or neutral colours of Dior, J.Mendel, Blumarine, Chado Ralph Rucci and Luisa Beccaria.
