This was taken at Madonna's (Theda Bara in white!) after-party, though Gaga definitely attended Vanity Fair's, too. JR, a Time honoree, was the exclusive photographer at Madonna's normally photo-barren event, taking pics in a photo booth for guests and, it turns out, for Time.

I love that this is photo-journalistic and unfiltered — Madonna does not, it turns out, have kitten ears and whiskers.

I'm surprised such an exclusive set-up and such hallowed access is given a crumped-white-paper-backdrop treatment, but I guess it really is about your subjects, all of whom were famous.
