Cover Loving: February Magazines Are All About Actresses


You can tell that it is award season as all the major magazines have gorgeous actresses gracing their covers. Vanity Fair has gone for Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, Harper’s Bazaar have an elegant looking Anne Hathaway, Glamour UK goes girlie with Emma Stone, and Victoria Beckham’s designs score two covers with both Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart wearing white on the covers of ELLE UK and V Magazine.

My favourite has to be the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence sporting her natural blonde locks in a fun cover for Vanity Fair. Shot by Ellen von Unwerth there is a softness in Jennifer’s face on the cover that is transformed into a complete vixen for the accompanying editorial and I love it. Sometimes Jennifer can be a little too serious – this cover is fun and relaxed and definitely brightened up my day.

Vanity-Fair-jennifer-lawrenemma-stone-glamour-magazineIt was close but my girl crush Emma Stone is my second favourite with her girlie cover for Glamour UK shot by Matthias Vriens-McGarth. Wearing a D&G botanical floral print, Emma is perfect for Glamour’s audience, I just wish they had gone for a different colour for the font – the orange is working for me. Anyone else was thinking this cover looks a little familiar? Well you would be right as a very similar shot from the same shoot was used for Glamour US back in May 2011.


Next up has to be Scarlett Johansson’s subscriber cover for ELLE UK’s February issue wearing a Burberry coat shot by Rankin. I like the newsstand version with her working a Victoria Beckham microbrush and lace dress but only from the ankles up, I am not loving those runway Manolo Blahnik for Victoria Beckham shoes. The subscriber cover is intriguing – I love the messy hair and seeing only one eye – Scarlett looks beautiful.


It was hard to decide who came next between Anne and Kristen, I am not blown away by either cover to be honest, but I think Harper’s Bazaar just takes it because of that gorgeous crystal-embellished Giorgio Armani strapless gown – all I can say about the rest is does Anne have a lazy eye?

Kristen doesn’t fair much better for me on V Magazine’s Spring 2013 issue. It isn’t that I don’t like the styling, the white Victoria Beckham vest with a black bra peeking out is fine, the make-up is grundy as you would expect from the Twilight actress – the problem I have is that I feel I have seen it all before – the wet hair, the moody look, the dark make-up around the eyes. Anyone else a little bored?

Kristen-Stewart-V-Magazine-So which actresses gets your vote? Jennifer, Emma, Scarlett, Anne or Kristen?

Les Miserables: Anna Hathaway Wearing Tom Ford

Anne Hathaway, Tom FordWho: Anne Hathaway

Where: At the Les Miserables premiere in New York at the Ziegfeld Theatre

Wearing: A black taffeta cape-back Tom Ford evening gown with a thigh-high split from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Tom Ford bondage strap thigh-high boots

Verdict: Getting married really has shaken up Anne Hathaway’s style, first we saw her in a very dramatic Givenchy Haute Couture at the London premiere, and now we have this very sexy vixen look that she is completely owning.

I am blown away with this look, not only was I so not expecting to see Anne in dominatrix style boots, but I am so impressed with how at ease and confident she looks wearing this outfit.

I am a fan of everything about this look, which is basically a replica of the Tom Ford SS13 look book, the column gown on its own is gorgeous, add in the voluminous cape to the back and the thigh-high boots and this is one showstopping look. Anne is working her vamp-Goth look to perfection.

Are you liking Anne’s change of direction for her red carpet looks? Or do you think the star is trying a little too hard?

Les Misérables: Anne Hathaway In Givenchy

Who: Actress Anne Hathaway

Where: At the Les Misérables World Premiere in London

Wearing: A white off-the-shoulder beaded Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, featuring draped sleeves, dramatic neckline and a plunging open back

Verdict: Well after I got over the shock of seeing Anne Hathaway sporting such a dramatic couture gown – seriously what a contrast to yesterdays blog post about her fun cover shoot with Glamour, I was quietly pleased.

I am sure for some they won’t like this Givenchy gown on Anne, but I love that she went for something daring, but I do wonder how much convincing Rachel Zoe her stylist had to do. But come whether you like this gown on Anne you have to admit this look deserved to be showed off.

What I love is that her pixie hair cut that she has been getting to grips with over the past few months really works with this dress, it allows the gown with its off-the-shoulder and backless detailing really shine, and I am so pleased that she went for bright ruby lips – completes her movie starlet look.

This is sure to divide critics – but what do you think love or hate Anne’s dramatic look?

Cover Loving: Anne Hathaway Has Fun With Glamour US

When I first saw this cover of Anne Hathaway on the January issue of Glamour US I have to be honest I was stunned – I love her movies, her red carpet looks, but never have I seen her look so happy, young and even sexy – for me this a great cover.

Shot by Alexel Hay, I love the styling and direction of this shoot, not only does Anne look like she is having so much fun but she also looks incredible. I love the combination of the $50 Monrow charity vest in aid of One Billion Rising, a good cause highlighting rape and violence against women, teamed with the sexy Clover Canyon embroidered briefs and very cool Skullcandy headphones – she looks hot!

I am also pleased that Anne has grown into her pixie cut, her hair looks cute in these pictures, and oh my that yellow Alexander McQueen gown in the editorial is simply divine.

I am sure that some will feel this is a cheesy cover, but come on peeps it is for Glamour, but I have to be honest I really do love it.

What do you think of Anne showing off her fun side?

New York City Ballet: Anne Hathaway In Valentino

Who: Anne Hathaway

Where: At the opening of the New York City Ballet Fall Gala held at the Lincoln Center

Wearing: A green floral print Valentino gown with long sleeves from the autumn/winter 2012 couture collection, made from chiffon and silk and took more than 900 hours to make. Anne teamed her gown with a Roger Vivier clutch and her cute pixie crop.

Verdict: The more I see Anne with her pixie crop, the more I like it, and her hair and make-up look flawless with this exquisite Valentino gown. Everything from the colour, to the embroidery and sheer detailing, this is a divine dress that looks incredible on Anne.

I really don't think I have seen Anne look this good in ages, there is an effortlessness about her in this gown that is just pure perfection.

Do you rate Anne's romantic Valentino gown?

The Dark Knight Rises: Gucci Dresses Leading Stars

Who: Catwoman aka Anne Hathaway and the Dark Knight himself Christian Bale

Where: At the European Premiere of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ held in London

Wearing: Anne – a champagne beaded Gucci gown with a floral embellished neckline from the Cruise 2013 collection and Tiffany jewellery

Christian – a Gucci black notch lapel two button Signoria suit with white dress shirt, black silk tie and black leather belt.

Verdict: I wanted to see Anne wear something striking, colourful and a little bit daring, I have to be honest I was hoping for Alexander McQueen or something sexy from Versace’s couture collection, so because of all these hopes and dreams I wasn’t completely blown away by her sparkly Gucci halter gown.

That isn’t to say I didn’t love the dress – the colour on her is perfectly, her short crop shows off that incredible floral embellished neckline, and I can’t deny that she completely sparkles – I don’t know I just wanted more.

Her leading man however did impress me, I thought he might have gone for Armani like his character Bruce Wayne, but this Gucci suit looks amazing on him. I am also loving his crazy hair!!!

What do you think of Anne’s dress – do you think it is gorgeous and she dazzles but you also wanted to see more from her – or do you think I am being a little too picky of one of my favourite actresses?

The Dark Knight Rises: Anne Hathaway Works Two Stella McCartney Looks

Anne Hathaway has already wowed me with her gorgeous Prabal Gurung gown, but I was wondering how long into The Dark Knight Rises promo tour it would be until the Stella McCartney came out, after she attended the Resort 2013 collection last month.

For two TV appearance in New York this week Anne went for two very elegant looks from Stella McCartney’s Spring 2013 collection. First up was the Late Show with David Letterman and my favourite of the two looks, Anne wore a black cocktail dress with silk fringe detailing and I think she looks absolutely stunning.

Then there was a cute black and white gingham cut out dress for her appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon TV show, with both looks paired with black Prada heels.

One things for sure, Anne really is having a black and white moment on this promo tour. Here’s hoping for colour at tonight’s London Premiere, I would love to she her working a vibrant Alexander McQueen number – but I have a feeling it might be one of Stella McCartney’s eveningwear collection gowns or even a tuxedo.
