Vanity Fair has reached deep into their photo archives for their new exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art succinctly titled 'Vanity Fair Portraits.'  A total of 130 photos document the history of Hollywood through unique and beautiful images of the stars.

The photographs featured at the LACMA depict timeless Hollywood stars like Fred and Adele Astaire, Jean Harlow, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, and Matt Damon.

Critics are questioning the artistic credibility of 'Vanity Fair Portraits,' dismissing it as merely "a celebration of celebrity." We already celebrate celebrity in every other possible way, what harm can a few photos do? Stats for Exhibits of Iconic Photographs Trending: Older & Mild
