Vanity, thy last name is ‘Fair’

What do you get when you cross Vanity Fair with an Oscar party? Answer after the jump. Oh, never mind, I’ll tell you: the Vanity Fair Oscar Party! You know, I’ve always understood that the V.F.O.P. was a big deal, but I didn’t realize that it was a heroic effort in statesmanship until I read Graydon Carter’s breathless account of his staff’s selfless efforts to throw the Most Important Party In The World.

Note: they’re doing a webcast, but if it’s anything like last year’s, don’t stay home for it. I’ll watch it so you don’t have to.
