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?

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: 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: 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?

Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue – Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene

ELLE US Nov pcruz 2 Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue   Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene %tag

American ELLE’s Hollywood issue is one of my favourite magazines to pick up as I love the mix of actresses they go for – and this year is no exception with Reese Witherspoon, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, and Melissa McCarthy all gracing the cover.

My favourite cover this year is a difficult choice – between Penélope Cruz, who looks stunning wearing a cashmere sweater by The Row and Chopard jewellery – I love how they’ve kept her make-up to a minimal to show off her adorable freckles, and Shailene Woodley, even though this cover looks set for summer rather than autumn wearing Calvin Klein Swimwear there is something different about the pose that makes it stand out.

ELLE US Nov swoodley 2 Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue   Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene %tag ELLE US Nov rwitherspoon 2 Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue   Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene %tag

Reese Witherspoon’s cover is probably the most predictable, but nevertheless she still looks stunning in a sexy Versace number. The cover I think I was most disappointed with was Melissa McCarthy styled in an oversized Marina Rinaldi coat with OTT eighties hair – I can only imagine how much hairspray they used.

Online there also seems to be another two covers featuring Marion Cotillard working the crop top trend in Dior, and British actress Naomie Harris looking absolutely gorgeous in a Calvin Klein Collection wrap halter top and skirt, very similar to the one that Rose Byrne wore to the Primetime Emmys.

Considering this is a November cover there is a lot of skin on show – especially with the main fashion tagline being ‘the perfect coat shape’. It is hard to decide on my favourite but I think it has to be Penélope Cruz as she just looks gorgeous and is really the only one, except for Melissa wearing anything autumn related.

Which cover is your favourite? Also do you think these covers seem more appropriate for spring/summer than November?

Cover Loving: Rihanna For Glamour US

Glamour us nov rihanna Cover Loving: Rihanna For Glamour US %tag

Wow, now this is a whole different side of Rihanna. Gracing the November issue of Glamour US, Rihanna looks gorgeous and girlie showing off her curly cropped hair and striking eyes. Normally the singer is all about sex appeal, but what I love about this cover is how girlie she looks, with a touch of RiRi attitude of course!!!

Wearing a Dior bodysuit, Kenneth Jay Lane hoop earrings and a Lynn Ban cuff, this is one gorgeous cover, but what draws you in though has to be her make-up, from her dramatic eyes to the soft lip colour.

Made-up using products from her own Mac collection, I love the bronze and gold metallic eye shadow and strong eyeliner – it really does make her green eyes pop. With her eyes looking so incredible it looks like the rest of her face is make-up less. Simply gorgeous.

For me this is one captivating cover – are you a fan of RiRi’s latest editorial?

Cover Loving: Diane Kruger For Glamour Paris & C California Style

Diane Kruger Covers Cover Loving: Diane Kruger For Glamour Paris & C California Style %tag

So my girl crush Diane Kruger has scored herself another couple of magazine covers with equal love for Chanel on both of them. The first is Glamour Paris where the actress rocks a whole lot of Chanel bling and the second is for C California Style magazine wearing a gorgeous black and white ensemble. As well as being a little Chanel overload, I know she is the face of their new beauty campaign, I get the feeling that The Bridge star loves styling her hair to the side!!!

I think out of the two covers Glamour Paris shot by Jason Kim just pips it. Even though it is a beauty special the magazine didn’t go for a cute, girlie close-up, they went for an edgy, attitude-filled image that verges slightly into trashy territory. For me, this cover is brash and OTT and I love, for some I think there will be too much bling.

The accompanying editorial is cute and quirky, with Diane showing off her model features while having make-up applied. Her eyes on the second shot are incredible!!!

There is a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, check it out here, where Diane rocks a number of other Chanel looks including a gold chained belt – I hope that there is also a fashion shoot within the magazine as well.

More high-fashion and more prim and proper is the cover of C California Style magazine. Don’t get me wrong it is a great cover, but it doesn’t blow me away as much as the incredible editorial. Shot by Matthias Vriens-McGrath, I love the monochrome styling of the shoot, Diane looks elegant in gowns by Dior, Prada, and Altuzarra. With my favourite being that stunning backless Balenciaga gown.

Both covers and both editorials are so different, it is the reason I love to see Diane Kruger on the pages of magazines as much as I do on the red carpet as you know it will also be amazing.

Are you a fan of her jewellery-heavy Glamour Paris cover or is the elegant black and white Chanel dress for C California Style more your taste?
