It might be their annual glam Hollywood issue, but Vanity Fair has chosen to show some of most famous celebrities not in red carpet dresses, but stripped bare, without any makeup.

Scarlett Johansson and Kate Winslet were photographed not wearing any makeup by award-winning photographer Chuck Close.

Johansson, 29, looks adorable beaming in a simple grey jumper, while Winslet, 38, is more serious, photographed when she was pregnant with her third child. Both look amazing and refreshingly real without the heavy makeup and Photoshopping we’re used to seeing.


Close photographed 20 celebrity altogether for Vanity Fair’s 20th Hollywood issue, including Oprah, Brad Pitt and Helen Mirren.

He told each celebrity to “Be responsible for your own look—no professional styling or hair or makeup.”
