(1840) - Novel by William Thackeray
(1860 - 1863) Humor magazine, New York, New York
(1913 - present) New York based magazine (originally Dress and Vanity Fair) which today combines the glossy, sycophantic celebrity obsession of, say, People, with some top-notch writing about news, media, film, and politics. Owned by media conglomerate Conde Nast. I had always considered it in the same league with Cosmopolitan or Glamor, or other fashion rags until I started reading the articles. I particularly liked a Gore Vidal piece a few years ago on the rise of Big Brother in the United States.
