Vanity Fair’s November 2009 issue is currently on stands–and it is selling like hotcakes. The November issue features Hollywood’s most stunning stars and includes everything from a feature on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to a breathtaking layout on Lady Gaga and her fabulous performance at the Met Gala.

The November issue also marks Vanity Fair’s return to the UK, after a seven-year absence. This month’s issue marks the return of Vanity Fair magazine to the UK, after a seven-year absence. The return of Vanity Fair to the UK marks the resurrection of a brand that was initially founded in London in 1905 and which now has offices in New York and Los Angeles. The resurgence of Vanity Fair in the UK is the result of a bold new editorial direction from Condé Nast International, which runs the magazine. It also marks a return to the UK for Vanity Fair’s contributing editors, fashion commentators and photographers, many of whom have strong British ties.

Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson has been in the limelight for a while now, ever since the Twilight films exploded onto the scene. The British actor has featured in blockbusters such as Water for Elephants and The Lost Boys as well as in the indie film A Dangerous Method. But, aside from acting in film, Pattinson has been trying to carve out a career in prose. He has written a memoir titled Vanishing Point, which is now available in paperback. The UK edition of Vanity Fair will be publishing a two-part interview with Pattinson this month, looking into the actor’s interesting life decisions as well as his acting career. The first part of the interview went to press before the premiere of The Lost Boys, while the second part will be published online shortly after the film’s premiere.

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt

Another big story in the November issue of Vanity Fair is the reunion of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. After being married for 12 years and having two children, the former couple decided to take a step back from their hectic schedules and embark on a family vacation. As a result of their decision to slow down, Pitt became involved in the Sundance Film Festival. He was presented with the Festival’s Pioneer Award for his commitment to independent film. And it was also at the Sundance Film Festival that the world got its first sight of Jolie and Pitt’s spectacular reunion. The star-studded event was a huge success and confirmed, yet again, that Jolie and Pitt are not going to be separating any time soon.

Met Gala

Turning now to Fashion, Vanity Fair’s annual review of style is always one of the magazine’s most anticipated issues. This year was no exception, with everyone from Kate Moss to Christy Beckingham getting a spot on the magazine’s cover. One of the standout items in Fashion this month is Vogue’s tribute to the Duchess of Windsor, which reinterprets the famous style guru’s outfits from the 1940s. Another highlight is L’Woozers’ stunning homage to Christian Dior’s iconic “Blue Book,” which pays tribute to the house’s original marketing brochure. In an interview, Christian Dior’s Creative Director, Hedi Slimane, says that he is excited about L’Woozers and that the publication will help to reinvigorate the house’s fashion scene in London. Similarly, Victoria Beckham’s Victoria Beckham Creative Director, Marc Jacobs, has said that the designer is “always interested in refreshing traditionals and giving them a modern twist.”

Finally, perhaps the most interesting story in the issue is its in-depth interview with Lady Gaga. The interview focuses on the US artist’s fashion exploits and her impact on British culture. The UK edition of Vanity Fair marks the first major interview with Lady Gaga since she burst onto the scene in 2007 and since then her reputation has only grown. The interview contains some fascinating insights into Lady Gaga’s life as well as her work. While the interview confirms many of the singer’s well-documented quirks – from her love of Alexander McQueen to her fear of flying – it also goes some way to explaining her success. As Gaga’s stylist, Nicola Mclean, says, “She’s not afraid to be herself, she doesn’t play by the rules and she’s not intimidated by anything. That’s how she became so successful – and it’s why she’ll continue to be successful in the future as well. She’s not scared of trying new things.”

The November issue of Vanity Fair is available on newsstands now. There’s also a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the issue available as a free download from Vanity Fair’s website.
