(Est. 1914) “Vanity Fair became a bellwether of the Jazz Age under the editorial direction of Frank Crowninshield in 1914. It folded in 1936, but was resurrected in 1983, hardly missing a beat. Helmed by Tina Brown until 1992, and currently edited by Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair publishes a steady stream of hard-hitting stories, colorful narratives, and eye-popping exposés that routinely become part of the national discussion.”

I always found the old logo to be too casual or too Cosmo. This seems much better fitted to this magazine.

Thanks to Gravitart Ocalan for the tip.
