Vanity Fair seems to have a habit of exhibiting only white celebrities on its prestigious Hollywood Issue cover. In this Mario Testino photograph, Oscar nominated actresses Rooney Mara and Jessica Chastain join Mia Wasikowska and Jennifer Lawrence in the coveted top-cover page. The following pull-out pages reveal five white actresses and only two of color draped in silk and furs.

The thing about the "color" issue is that we wouldn't have noticed it if it wasn't documented by Jezebel as being done 10 times before. Check out the past Vanity Fair covers that mainly featured white actors while bumping the rest to the next page:
