Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue

VF Hollywood issue 2014 Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue %tagOne of my favourite covers of the year has to be the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue, I love seeing which stars have made the cut, the poses, the amazing fashion, and of course seeing who stands out. Last year didn’t wow me, OK it was great seeing Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck in bed together, but this year’s is more glamorous and I love it.

For the 20th anniversary cover of the Hollywood issue, Julia Roberts shows off her fabulous legs surrounded by Chiwetel EjioforIdris Elba, and a very dapper looking George Clooney. But the really cover doesn’t really wow until you see the whole three-panel foldout with the statuesque Lupita Nyong’o, who is really shining in her slinky gold Calvin Klein gown along with Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Naomie Harris.

The cover shot by Annie Leibovitz also features Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson, Chadwick Boseman and Lea Seydoux for a very elegant Hollywood look at the best stars of the year.

Which star stands out for you on this year’s Vanity Fair Hollywood issue?

W Magazine: Jennifer vs Oprah vs Cate

W jennifer lawrence W Magazine: Jennifer vs Oprah vs Cate %tag

Reason number 387 on why I love Jennifer Lawrence – she isn’t afraid to rock her curves on a cover of a magazine. The Oscar-winning actress, and potential contender this year for the best supporting actress gong, looks incredible wearing a 50′s style floral high-waisted Dolce & Gabbana bikini on one of the six special covers for W magazine’s Movie issue.

It isn’t often that you get to compare Jennifer against Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, who is one of my favourite red carpet stars, as well as Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams, and Lupita Nyong’o – all chosen for their incredible movie performances over the last year snapped by photography legend Juergen Teller. 

Inside the magazine, Jennifer opens up about her big trip-up at last year’s Oscars (reason 254 for loving her):

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

As well as loving Jennifer’s cover – Cate is stunning, I love her red lippy, I have to say that Lupita in that metallic Dior dress has to be my favourite. I just love that W magazine went with an up-and-coming actress who is really standing her own against the more established names. I think Lupita will be the one to watch this award season, not only will she pick up a lot of awards but her red carpet style is going to be amazing.

Which W magazine cover are you loving? Also are you still loving Jennifer Lawrence as much as me?

Cover Loving: Allison Williams For InStyle

instyle uk feb allison will Cover Loving: Allison Williams For InStyle %tag

So is this cover loving or just coat loving – I am in love with this gorgeous yellow and blue Miu Miu coat that Girls star Allison Williams is wearing on the February cover of InStyle UK.

I am a little obsessed with pastels, so I am a little pleased that it is set to be one of spring’s hottest trends and the styling of this cover and accompanying shoot is perfection. I have a few issues with that pose and positioning of her hand, but I can let that all go for this incredible coat.

What I also love about this cover, other than the fab coat, have I said that already, is that it is nice to see a covered-up cover for February – as yes it is still bloody cold and January is just too early to be handling summery covers.

Inside the editorial is just as gorgeous as the cover, Allison gets all ladylike modelling must-have spring pieces from Burberry, Michael Kors and Isabel Marant – I didn’t think I wanted a lilac coat until I saw this one below!!!

Are you a fan of this two-tone Miu Miu beauty?

Cover Loving: Cate Blanchett In Celine For US Vogue

Vogue cate blanchett cover Cover Loving: Cate Blanchett In Celine For US Vogue %tag

It is strange that we haven’t even had Christmas yet and spring collections are already gracing covers. For January, US Vogue has gone for the gorgeous Cate Blanchett, one of my favourite red carpet stars, and she looks stunning in a Celine dress.

As well as loving the cover star, it is nice to see Céline on the cover, even though the French fashion house gets critical acclaim its doesn’t often grace covers and this arty, paint-stroke dress looks amazing,

For some, featuring Cate seems like a safe choice as a cover star, but for me her beauty means I will always pick up magazines with her on the front. As well as adoring the cover, shot by Craig McDean, I love the accompanying editorial with Cate wearing incredible looks from Dolce & Gabbana, Armani Prive and Nina Ricci.

Will you be picking up the January issue of US Vogue?

Cover Loving: Elle Korea Goes Graphic

elle korea dec 2013 Cover Loving: Elle Korea Goes Graphic %tag

Normally I am all for simple, clean magazine covers, but there is something about Elle Korea’s graphic approach for its December 2013 issue that just stands out.

Featuring model Lily Aldridge wearing a white dress with statement star heels – this would have been an interesting cover just with the styling, the hair and make-up and the pose – but the added doodle graphics just makes this a great cover.

Are you a fan of this graphic cover?

Cover Loving: Beckhams’ Grace Vogue Paris

Vogue Paris Beckham 2 Cover Loving: Beckhams Grace Vogue Paris %tag

If there was ever a time I wish I could read fluent French it is now, as the December issue of Vogue Paris not only has an amazing cover featuring Victoria and David Beckham, but it is also guest-edit by the designer.

There are two great covers shot by photographers Inez and Vinoodh, each features an intimate moment between Victoria and David, and I love them both. What surprises me most about the covers is how Victoria captures the attention over her hunky hubbie, plus how good does she look in green – she should wear that colour more often.

“We entrusted the editor’s chair for this issue to a woman who revealed herself to be the absolute opposite of her public image while we were working together,” revealed Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris. “Spontaneous and full of humour, she’s modest, with a healthy dose of ambition. And like all those who are truly passionate about what they do, Victoria is a perfectionist.”

So what can you expect from Victoria’s edit – well apparently a look into her world from her family to afternoon tea with Valentino, as well as a look backstage at her spring/summer 2014 show, and a few of her Christmas memories. There is also an interview with her discussing her relationship with David and a fashion shoot by David Sims called “In Bed With Victoria”.

Roll on December 2 when Paris Vogue hits newsstands.

Which cover do you prefer? And will you be buying a copy next month?

Cover Loving: Kate Hudson For Harper’s Bazaar US

Kate Hudson is really having a moment lately, wowing on the red carpet, and now looking incredible on the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar US for the magazine’s December issue.

Shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Kate shows off her super toned body in a gorgeous selection of designer clothing from the festive red Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress and Alexander McQueen gowns to her shimmering Lanvin gown on the cover.

As well as working gorgeous gowns, the actress also looks hots in a cut-out gold embellished Roberto Cavalli swimsuit, which doesn’t scream December issue to me – but hey she looks stunning so why not!!!

In the magazine she chats about her family, keeping fit, as well as discussing her favourite red carpet moments: “The black-and-gold Alexander McQueen dress I wore to the Golden Globes, and a red Stella McCartney and a red Prabal Gurung. I haven’t really done Valentino yet, but I want to.”

I think Kate would look amazing in a floaty Valentino number – here’s hoping that happens during the up-coming award season!!!

Will you be buying the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar US?
