COVER: Regally Blonde: REESE WITHERSPOON brings home a $15 million paycheck, makes time for the kids, and still looks fabulous. Why are we putting her on our cover? (Because she stars in the movie VANITY FAIR)
SPECIAL SECTION: OLYMPIAD XXVIII Despite dope scandals, big-money sponsorships, and terrorist threats, the world will still stop to marvel at the men and women of the 28th Summer Olympic Games. Bruce Weber's 29-page portfolio of American athletes captures an age-old ideal, while David Halberstam hails the fleeting, pure perfection that is true gold-medal glory.
REGALLY BLONDE: Adoring teenage fans catapulted Reese Witherspoon into the $ 15-million-per-picture club, but now she wants respect. So she's playing the scheming, ambitious Becky Sharp in Mira Nair's upcoming adaptation of Thackeray's Vanity Fair. Leslie Bennetts talks to the Hollywood mother of two about becoming a redhead, her marriage to Ryan Phillippe, and Tupperware therapy. Photographs by Annie Leibovitz.
THE MONARCHY OF GEORGE I: I Reformed ne'er-do-well, reckless warrior, profligate spender-- George W Bush bears an uncanny resemblance to Shakespeare's Henry V, who also launched an invasion that turned out badly. As the president awaits the voters' verdict, acclaimed historian Niall Ferguson warns that time's judgment may be exceedingly unkind. Illustrations by Paul Davis, Brad Holland, Gerald Scarfe, and Edward Sorel.
WHITE MISCHIEF: Sita White, daughter of the late multi-millionaire Lord Gordon White and mother of Jmran Khan's love child, spent years fighting for the inheritance she believed she'd been wrongfully denied. In May, at 43, she dropped dead in yoga class next to one of her opponents, her 41-year-old stepmother. Vicky Ward probes Los Angeles's high-society tragedy.
AN HEIRESS'S HEART: What did Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, and Howard Hughes have in common? They all romanced a famously wealthy young beauty named GLORIA VANDERBILT. In an excerpt from her memoir, the style icon recaps her restless search for love.
FANFAIR: 30 DAYS IN THE LIFE OF THE CULTURE: Puppy Love--Leslie Bennetts hears Bruce Weber's True calling. Krista Smith screens David LaChapelle's dance-crazed Krumped. Hot Type. Kimberly Cutter tries niche cabler Plum TV; Elissa Schappell reviews Nick Flynn's memoir. Lisa Robinson's Hot Tracks. A. A. Gill visits Cape Town. Aaron Gell smiles on Brian Wilson; Edward Helmore writes on Paper. David Friend on Cornell Capa and John F Kennedy. A. M. Homes exposes the photography of Sam Taylor-Wood; Steven Daly sings The Black Rider's praises. Mind your manners with Kristina Stewart; Punch Hutton parties on with Fête Accompli!; Dany Levy sets up at Camp Beverly Hills. Christine Muhlke gets a whiff of Bond No. 9; My Stuff--Elle Macpherson.
COLOR ME KHAKI: World War II never fades, itjust gets Disneyfied--remade, recast, and used to justify wars of any size. Plowing through the syrupy nostalgia surrounding D-day's 60th and the opening of the WW II Memorial, James Wolcott wonders where the real victory went.
THE REAGAN TOUCH: Before his annual July 4 pilgrimage to the glam-packed Hamptons, Dominick Dunne took his diary to Ronald Reagan's state funeral, admiring the grace of his friend Nancy and sizing up a center aisle that was a Who's Who of global power. Photograph by Roxanne Lowit.
THE BORIS SHOW: Can a conservative writer, editor, and TV pundit who is given to outrageous comments, one too many drinks, and sloppy dressing rise to the top of the political establishment? He can if he's British, funny, and having a whale of a good time. Michael Wolff gets close to Boris Johnson, Tory-party darling and possible prime minister. Photographs by Nigel Parry.
OF WAR AND PRESIDENTS: Another election year, another descent into the patriotic fault line left by Vietnam. As Republicans who avoided military service question John Kerry's valor, David Halberstam explores a cultural divide that confuses warriors with wimps and courage with blind aggression.
VROOM AT THE TOP: Something's gotta give when an Upper East Side fashion maven swings her Manolos over the hot metal doorsill of a Dodge Viper GTS Coupe. In an excerpt from her upcoming book, Amy Fine Collins and her Turkish driving instructor from Queens harness a 450-horsepower beast. Photograph by David Drebin.
SACCO AND THE CITY: West Chelsea was "nowhere" until Amy Sacco opened Lot 61 and Bungalow 8, giving Sean Penn, Bill Clinton, and other A-listers a living room of their own. Hanging out with the 36-year-old nightclub queen, George Gurley learns how tragedy turned Sacco's life upside down--and into an all-hours party. Photographs by Patrick Demarchelier.
SIMPSON SPOKEN HERE: Marking the 16th season of The Simpsons, Art Streiber and Steven Daly spotlight the (surprisingly few) men and women without whom Springfield would be silent.
THE MAKING OF A SNIPER: Just two years before he joined John Muhammad in their 2002 Beltway shooting spree, Lee Boyd Malvo was a bright, hardworking Christian-school student, loved by his classmates and teachers. Donovan Webster investigates a boy's deadly odyssey: the turbulent family life, the indoctrination by a homicidal father figure, and the killing of at least 10 innocent people.
CALL OF THE WIDE: From 1950 to 1990, Kodak's 18-by-60-foot Colorama billboard brought a vision of American Utopia--family vacations, frolicking couples, lush flower beds--to the push and shove of Grand Central station. With the best of those 565 supersize photographs collected in a book, Bruce Handy recalls the nation they reflected.
VANITIES: LOVE JONES: Douglas McGrath brings us the diaries of Private First Class Ricky Gonzalez, who can't believe a word he's writing. VF's Public Editor is no more--is Ed Coaster to blame?.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Michael Phelps.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Kyle Maynard.
LETTERS: Martyrs and Murderers.
PLANETARIUM: Virgos on the loose.
PROUST QUESTIONNAIRE: Donald Trump.
