With hot newcomers on the scene like Vicki Richter, Vanity may not be the best-looking transsexual performer on the block anymore – but she's still darn close. And she's also perhaps the best-known tranny out there...kind of the "Jenna Jameson" of the TS world, if you will. Vanity Superstar is a collection of four of her most-memorable appearances in Joey Silvera's ongoing Rogue Adventures series, plus one brand-new scene filmed exclusively for this compilation.
In all-new footage, Vanity introduces each of the scenes on this disc, starting with one of her first-ever scenes in Rogue Adventures 4. This scene takes place in a kitchen with Paul Morgan, and has the hot transsexual giving Paul doggy, cowgirl and missionary, then jerking off onto his body.
We are told that Vanity's next scene, a pairing with black-stud Shahan from the title Rogue Adventures 13, was intentionally supposed to be romantic and passionate, instead of "down and dirty". Vanity looks quite hot here, wearing an outfit that includes white garters and white thigh-highs. She spends the first quarter of the scene in a mutual exchange of oral with Shahan, which proceeds into giving him missionary and then taking his cock inside her ass in the doggy and reverse cowgirl positions.

The next two scenes on this release are fun to watch (assuming you haven't seen them already) because they bring a female performer into the mix. First we get a threesome from Rogue Adventures 15 between Vanity, Cherie and Shahan that ups the fun by having Cherie don a strap-on and act like she has a cock as well! Things get even wilder in a threesome from Rogue Adventures 18 that has Vanity and Chris Dano having fun with blonde Jessica Darlin in a garage.
The final scene is the one exclusively filmed for this release, and features Vanity with male performer Jagger. Included in the action are Vanity getting doggy from Jagger while she sits on a stool; and Jagger giving it to Vanity in the same position over on a bed. The cumshot is worth seeing here, as Vanity sucks on Jagger's cock until he explodes in her mouth.
For some reason, Evil Angel's video quality for Joey Silvera releases are never quite as sharp as they are for some of their other in-house director's releases, such as Jules Jordan or Johnny Darkko. I'm not sure if it's the camera Joey is using or the people doing the DVD transfer, but the video here is only a notch above average for an adult release. The video is presented in the full-frame format.
The audio quality is even more disappointing, as the new material seems very hard to hear, while the re-used footage's audio quality is average, at best. The audio is presented in 2.0 Dolby.
I'm not sure exactly how many different scenes Vanity has filmed for Evil Angel, but this comp certainly seems like it's holding back some material, considering only four scenes were used in the main presentation, and we get nothing new in the bonus department.
The only bonuses that do exist on this release are a "Cumshot Recap" (you can watch all the pop-shots back to back – or go directly to your favorite), a photo gallery, a cast list, filmographies for Vanity, Cherie and Jessica Darlin, and some website info. Pretty slim for an Evil Angel release.
BRIAN'S BOTTOM LINE
Despite the lack of bonus material and the less-than-thrilling A/V quality, I'm still giving Vanity Superstar a marginal recommendation assuming you don't own two or more of the Rogue Adventures releases from which the majority of this compilation is made up from. As transsexual videos go, Vanity is an outstanding performer and the fact that she is extremely "passable" makes her scenes – at least for this viewer – all the more appealing.
