Vanity Fair picks leading ladies for 2012

Clockwise from top Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara. Actresses Jessica Chastain and Rooney Mara have been tipped for success in Vanity Fair's annual Hollywood issue.

The publication began its tradition of selecting the acting industry's next big stars in 1995, when Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow were among the line-up.

Mara and Chastain are pictured on the front cover alongside Mia Wasikowska, Jennifer Lawrence and seven others.

The art-deco style shoot was captured by photographer Mario Testino.

Features editor Jane Sarkin selected the 11 cover stars, who she thinks are set to become huge in Hollywood.

Elizabeth Olsen, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Adepero Oduye, Brit Marling and British actresses Felicity Jones and Lily Collins - daughter of British musician Phil Collins - complete the list.

Mara has received critical praise for her role as sociopathic cyberpunk Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo; while Chastain has received an Oscar nomination for her character in civil rights drama The Help.

Lawrence, meanwhile, received an Oscar nomination last year for the harrowing drama Winter's Bone. Wasikowska currently stars alongside Glenn Close in the film Albert Nobbs.

Olsen stole the spotlight from her older, former child-star sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley last year, playing a young woman who escapes an abusive cult in the film Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Shailine Woodley, another Oscar nominee, was chosen for her break-out role in The Descendants.

Patten, who was recently seen in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, was the oldest actress to be chosen, aged 36.

Collins appeared in the comedy drama Suing The Devil, Oduye is best known for Pariah, Marling was last seen in Arbitrage and Jones starred in Like Crazy.

"This group has solid acting cred. Some have already taken on great roles, and I think that all of these girls are on the go-to list for every film currently being cast," Sarkin said.

The annual cover of the March issue has featured stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Natalie Portman, Owen Wilson, James Franco, Joaquin Phoenix, Carey Mulligan and Amy Adams.

In some years, it eschews new talent to focus on Oscar nominees - with Kate Winslet gracing the cover four times.

Other recurring stars include Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johannson.

Sarkin said the cover is viewed by some as a "casting couch" that had previously helped actors raise their profiles.

But the magazine does not always get it right. Terminator 2 actor Edward Furlong, 24's Sarah Wynter and Jonathon Schaech, who starred in Tom Hanks' directorial debut That Thing You Do, are among those whose stars have waned since they appeared on Vanity Fair's front page.

Looking sleek and ladylike, Jessica Chastain stepped out in a sweeping white Givenchy couture gown embellished with pearls. With a high neckline and cinched-in waist, the elegant dress was topped off with jewellery courtesy of Harry Winston. Chastain chose a back-combed hairstyle to finish the look.

Chastain can now add another promising potential project to her slate as she’s reportedly set to join “Incendies” director Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the Russell Banks novel “The Darling.” Back in October, Banks spoke to Canadian news rag The Calgary Herald, and confirmed to them that Chastain would be working with Quebec filmmaker Villeneuve in the lead role of Hannah Musgrave. In Banks’ book, which is set in Liberia and the United States over a period of 16 years from 1975 to 1991, Musgrave is a political extremist who operates as a member of the Weather Underground. She’s forced to flee America for West Africa, where along with her Liberian husband she befriends a warlord who eventually pts her family and life in peril.

Apparently the project was set to be a Martin Scorsese film with Cate Blanchett following their work on “The Aviator” in 2004, but obviously that didn’t work out, even though this certainly sounds like something potentially within Scorsese’s wheelhouse. But 2010’s “Incendies,” which was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2011 Oscars, showcased a director who has a penchant for familial drama amidst the tension of the time period, so perhaps it isn’t a long shot for Villeneuve either. As for Chastain, at this point in time she can do no wrong in this writer’s mind, and it’s yet another intriguing part for the actress.
