    Because we are emotinally obligated to cover every single thing to do with Les Misérables, please enjoy a slideshow of beautiful oil portraits photographs of the cast, shot by Annie Leibovitz for the December issue of American Vogue.

    Aside from a much-needed look at Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen as The Thénardiers, this rich, expressive spread also offers certain proof that — haters be damned — Anne Hathaway is going to make a great Fantine.

    In addition to the glory of seeing the actors frozen in full costume — ready to be added to your already-robust Les Misérables shrine — we have to give major props to Leibovitz and the folks at Vogue for this feature. This kind of work, though par for the course with Leibovitz, is rare in magazines today. It's completely gimmick-free, with no nudity, no crazy outfits, no exotic location, and though the stars are posing as characters rather than as themselves, there's still an incredible quality to the captured emotions, which is at once very real and possessing of that storybook quality you see in 18th century European paintings.

    If this is all right up your alley, you've got to check out the full editorial, not to mention Anne Hathaway's cover interview. You'll fall completely in love, if you weren't already, which you were, so start reading. (Vogue)

Instead, splash. One false move — I blame the lid! — and that Strawberry Banana Blast made my new coat its home. I washed it out read
