Vanity Fair is a magazine of popular culture, fashion, and current affairs published by Condé Nast in the United States.
The first version of Vanity Fair was published from 1913 to 1936. The imprint was revived in 1983, and came to include four European editions of the magazine. The current editor is Radhika Jones.
In addition to its controversial photography, the magazine also prints articles on a variety of topics. In 1996, journalist Marie Brenner wrote an exposé on the tobacco industry titled “The Man Who Knew Too Much”. The article was later adapted into a movie The Insider (1999), which starred Al Pacino and Russell Crowe. Most famously, after more than thirty years of mystery, an article in the May 2005 edition revealed the identity of Deep Throat (W. Mark Felt), one of the sources for The Washington Post articles on Watergate, which led to the 1974 resignation of U.S. President Richard Nixon.
