Following in the footsteps of their Condé siblings Glamour, GQ, Vogue and Wired, Vanity Fair has launched a channel dedicated solely to video.
So far there are four channels available on the website: “Vanity Code,” an animated how-to series starting off with tips on swingers’ club etiquette, a celebrity interview show hosted by Vanity Fair Senior West Coast Editor Krista Smith (the only channel featuring a member of the VF masthead), a show based on Vanity Fair contributing editor David Kamp’s popular features and book series “The Snob’s Dictionary,” and a docu-series revolving around Manhattan’s most iconic addresses.
Seeing as our attention spans aligning us more and more closely with goldfish, none of the videos clock in at over five minutes. But Editor in Chief Graydon Carter is confident that won’t put a dent in the mag’s editorial spirit: “Our goal is to bring Vanity Fair to life in a new medium. If we do it right, these videos will be smart, entertaining, and a little bit unconventional.”
Obviously we watched the swingers’ club how-to first, which would be right at home on an episode of #CandidlyNicole, but it’s Smith’s charming interview with girl crush 4 lyfe Diane Kruger that we can’t stop replaying. After chatting politely about her new FX series, The Bridge, and getting cutely candid in a photo booth, Diane tactfully rips into a) celebrities who have stylists and b) the red carpet in general.
Watch her do that below, and see the rest of Vanity Fair’s videos here.
