Being Breezie Tumblr Turns Three, and I’m still reading Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue Oscars Annie Leibovitz

“The 20th Annual Hollywood Issue!” of Vanity Fair also marks the 3rd birthday of Being Breezie! Thanks for following, y’all!

Three years ago, I started writing the Being Breezie tumblr with a post about the “Hollywood Issue” of Vanity Fair. Three years later, I am once again looking forward to Annie Liebovitz’s Oscar-nom-filled photo shoot in the magazine’s March 2014 issue. Hopefully there will be more writing to come about the photography, the magazine, and the Oscars in the near future!

Happy Carnival, everyone!!
