'Les Miserables' cast, shot by Annie Leibovitz

As if there wasn't enough publicity for Tom Hooper's upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables, Vogue just had to have noted fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz capture the cast for their glossy pages. Admittedly, the content is right up Leibovitz's dark, dreamy alley, but they all basically look like the film's posters - with a more elaborate backdrop. Well, maybe except for the fact that Anne Hathaway does actually look like a dying prostitute (seen after the jump) in these photos.

The editorial - which also features Amanda Seyfriend, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Isabella Allen - will appear in Vogue's December issue, clearly to coincide with the film's December 25 release date.

Items Du Jour: Rihanna on Vogue, Lana Del Rey for H&M

Miley Cyrus+ Angelina Jolie was photographed on her way to meeting Turkish leaders to discuss the crisis in Syria looking like she just walked off the runway. Or perhaps maybe she just borrowed the loose, flowing, ground-length gown from her latest film, Maleficent.

+ Elsewhere, Miley Cyrus was snapped up wearing a black crop top with a pair of pants that could easily have been her pajamas; however, she strangely seems to be pulling the look off. Perhaps this is the magical work of her new, daring 'do?

+ Avid Twitter poster Rihanna broke her own news that she'll be covering Vogue a second time; Annie Leibovitz is again set to photograph the singer for the fashion glossy.

+ H&M released a behind-the-scenes video of the upcoming Lana Del Rey campaign, which was shot as a music video of the singer covering "Blue Velvet." Of course, because no one wants to be all that original these days, it looks very much like the David Lynch film of the same name.
