Vanity Fair editor GrayDon Carter wanted to do something unique this year, so he asked the famed photographer to create "Bruce Weber's Adventures in Hollywood, an ode to the city's warmer side."
Weber chose various historic Hollywood locations for his shoots, including back lots, soundstages, the Beverly Hills Hotel, Musso & Frank Grill, and the old Marion Davies estate.
V.F. special correspondent Bob Colacello, who went along with Weber on many of the shoots, noted that Bruce's "magic kingdom . . . is more Cinecittà than Disney, a place where Old Hollywood glamour is filtered through the lens of postwar Italian neo-realism, and Norman Rockwell wholesomeness is given an antic Fellini edge."
