Condé Nast’s Vanity Fair was founded in 1913 with the goal of recording “truthfully and entertainingly the progress of American life.” Since then, the title has featured the highest-quality journalism, photography, and commentary on all aspects of culture. On our 100th birthday, see the highlights of our history in slide shows, films, essays, articles, and full issues.I've read Vanity Fair - on and off - for years now. It is a slippery beast. Articles are either brilliant or vacuous with nothing much in between, but that should mean that their own selection of the highlights of a century's work of publication should be more wheat than chaff.
