This year’s cover of the 21st annual Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue is dripping with movie star charm and glamour.

The Foxcatcher and Big Eyes stars Channing Tatum and Amy Adams join The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, Oscar favourite Benedict Cumberbatch and Wild’s Reese Witherspoon on this year’s iconic three-panel foldout, with the men wearing bespoke white tie and the women draped in gold and red gowns.

Also featuring is Sienna Miller – the British actress is having a purple patch with roles in the Oscar nominated American Sniper and Foxcatcher.

Selma lead David Oyelowo, who earned a Golden Globe nod for his potrayal of Martin Luther King, Jr., also scored a spot on the coveted cover.

Miles Teller, from Whiplash, and Oscar Isaac, the star of A Most Violent Year, make up the A-List.

Annie Leibovitz has photographed all but three of the Hollywood Issue covers since the first edition debuted in 1995, and she describes this year’s shoot as “hair-rising” in its intimacy.

“Usually you shoot from fairly far away, but we wanted to get really close to the actors. We made an effort to create a feeling of intimacy,” Ms Leibovitz said.

“I pushed into them, shooting to the left and then the right, coming in as tight as I could.”

 The cover lineup, in full:

Channing Tatum, star of Foxcatcher, which received five Oscar nominations including best director.

Amy Adams, four-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner for Big Eyes.
