For the June 2009 issue, Vanity Fair gathered 25 acclaimed Broadway stars of stage and screen for an original portrait taken by famed photographer Mark Seliger. The actors featured are now appearing on the New York stage in some of the hottest Broadway plays of the spring season.

For the shoot in late February, the actors arrived at Seliger Studios early in the morning for a light breakfast and a chance to catch-up with old friends, new friends and long-time colleagues. As they all started to fill the small studio space, their connection to each other was undeniable. Some had appeared together on stage or screen, some had passing social connections, and some met colleagues they long-admired for the first time. Since the photo shoot, the actors have met up with each other socially between performances and even had the chance to see their colleagues in action on stage.

The actors featured in the portrait include: 33 Variations’ Jane Fonda, Colin Hanks & Samantha Mathis; Accent on Youth’s David Hyde Pierce; Exit the King’s Geoffrey Rush, Susan Sarandon, Lauren Ambrose & Andrea Martin; God of Carnage’s Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini & Marcia Gay Harden; Impressionism’s Jeremy Irons, Joan Allen, Andrè De Shields, Marsha Mason and Michael T. Weiss; Irena’s Vow’s Tovah Feldshuh; Mary Stuart’s Janet McTeer & Harriet Walter; The Philanthropist’s Matthew Broderick & Steven Weber; Waiting for Godot’s Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin & John Glover.

To see this once in a lifetime gathering of actors, check out the June 2009 issue of Vanity Fair on stands Wednesday, May 6th. Click here for a special preview of the feature and footage from the shoot.

Mark Seliger and Vanity Fair have generously donated two prints of the portrait to Broadway Cares / Equity Fights Aids. BC/EFA will have the prints signed and auctioned at a future event.

Jeremy and his date Francesca Bortolotto Possati

Francesca Bortolotto Possati is the chief of the Bauer hotel group in Venice, Italy. The forty-something Francesca Bortolotto Possati, is the owner of Venice’s Bauer hotel, and it has been home to her family for generations. Francesca grew up in a splendid 17th-century palazzo on the Grand Canal and now lives in another one nearby with her teenage daughter. Her looks are so characteristic of the “Serene Republic,” as Venice was once known, that you can’t miss her resemblance to the women who inhabit the paintings of Bellini, Veronese and Titian, except that she wears Caraceni, Hermes and Armani. Tall, with flowing, fair hair and eyes the pale blue of the city’s skies, she is met most mornings by a redwood motorboat at the dock outside her palazzo. She rides up the Grand Canal to the Bauer, which her late grandfather, a Genoan shipping tycoon, bought in the 1940s after he moved to Venice to marry her Venetian grandmother.

Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Explores Role of Fashion Models as Muses of Recent Eras

* Gala Benefit May 4, 2009, with Honorary Chair Marc Jacobs and Co-Chairs Kate Moss, Justin Timberlake, and Anna Wintour

The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion, the spring 2009 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, explores the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras. The exhibition is on view at the Metropolitan from May 6 through August 9, 2009.
The exhibition is made possible by Marc Jacobs. Additional support is provided by Condé Nast.

“The exhibition examines a timeline of fashion from 1947 to 1997 through the idealized aesthetic of the fashion model,” said Harold Koda, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute. “We look at the power of clothing, fashion photography, and the model to project the look of an era. With a mere gesture, a truly stellar model can sum up the attitude of her time – becoming not only a muse to designers or photographers, but a muse to a generation.”

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, the Museum’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit takes place on Monday, May 4, 2009. Marc Jacobs serves as Honorary Chair of the Gala. Co-Chairs are Kate Moss; Justin Timberlake; and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue. This fundraising event is The Costume Institute’s main source of annual funding for exhibitions, acquisitions, and capital improvements.

The exhibition features approximately 80 masterworks of haute couture and ready-to-wear. Fashion editorial, advertising, and runway photography plus large- scale projections from feature films are used throughout the galleries to contextualize the fashion zeitgeist.
