"When it comes to media voyeurism and the economic insights it can provide, the ads in Vanity Fair rival Charlie Rose’s television program as the best peep show of all. Between rip-and-sniff Dolce & Gabbana pages and come-hither Gucci models, readers get to see not what the kings are selling the lowly serfs, but what the royal family is telling itself. This is why I read Vanity Fair — its ads provide a valuable glimpse into the palace. May’s edition is no exception, thanks to Goldman Sachs — aka the investment bank at the center of Wall Street’s 2008 meltdown." (04/22/111)
