The 2008 Vanity Fair Hollywood Portfolio is probably one of the coolest damn things I have seen in a while. The folks at VF have taken on the works of Alfred Hitchcock in a very unique and creative way. Well, that is if you discount the fact that other compilations have been made just like this with big stars and Disney characters. But either way, this is cool. Stars such as Javier Bardem, Naomi Watts, Charlize Theron, Marion Cotillard and even Seth Rogen recreate scenes from some classic Hitchcock films.
My favorite of this collection is by far the last one on the list, which re-creates the shower scene from Psycho. And no, it’s not because Marion Cotillard is naked. She does look great, but I love the fact that it recreates the entire scene in blocks. Very cool, indeed. Take a look at the entire collection from the March issue of Vanity Fair below.
