Cover Loving: Cameron Diaz For ELLE UK

ELLE Dec Cameron subs Cover Loving: Cameron Diaz For ELLE UK %tag

I love it when a great cover drops through the letterbox and they don’t get much better than ELLE’s December cover featuring the gorgeous Cameron Diaz. The 40-year-old actress looks gorgeous on the subscriber cover, as well as being a vision in pink in this Christian Dior jacket and silk-tulle skirt, I love how adorable she looks.

Out promoting her new film Gambit, I love how David Slijper has captured her beauty rather than her sexuality, which is normally what is on show with Cameron’s covers.

When I tweeted a picture earlier of the cover some people commented that she looks a little scared, hey that is what I like about this image, I have to say I think it kind of rivals Gwen Stefani’s pink cover for Harper’s Bazaar US for one of my favourites of the year.

ELLE Dec Cameron Cover Loving: Cameron Diaz For ELLE UK %tagOn Sale on November 7, the newsstand cover is just as stunning with Cameron wearing a Chanel Resort dress, I just love the embroidery on the shoulders and the waist. I am not however totally on board with her pose though.

You might be thinking that this Chanel dress looks a little familiar, well that is because you might remember that Emma Stone wore it to the LA premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man.

Both covers are great, but so too is the accompanying editorial, with Cameron wearing a gorgeous pink and blue silk and lace dress by Erdem, a green lace Valentino gown, a beaded Gucci number, and a floral printed Roksanda Ilincic jumpsuit that I think only Cameron could pull off!!!

So what do you think of Cameron’s girlie pink subscriber cover? Does it work better than the newsstand cover?

Cover Loving: Dakota Fanning For ELLE UK

dakotaellenewscover Cover Loving: Dakota Fanning For ELLE UK %tag

It isn’t often that I am gutted I received the subscribers cover of ELLE UK, but for the February issue the Dakota Fanning newsstand cover is just stunning. I am a big fan of the Fanning sisters, I am still hoping that they will become the new Olsens, minus the twin status of course, and I thought Elle looked amazing on the cover of Teen Vogue – but Dakota has stepped it up.

It is easy to forget that Dakota is only 17-years-old, and surprisingly this is her first major solo glossy cover, and even though I love the sultry close-up on the subscribers cover and the gorgeous Louis Vuitton broderie anglaise collar peeking through – for me the baby blue Prada car-print top paired with the Prada leather skirt is just so cute-yet-edgy.

I also think a quick mention is needed for her striking make-up, fresh and grown-up, while still having a youthful feel about it, which is hard to achieve. How gorgeous is that shade of lippy – the divine L’Absolu Rouge in Rouge Odysee from Lancome. But what made me smile was the fact that the nail varnish used only costs £3.99, and that is because it is Rimmel London’s Hot Gossip shade – I so have to buy that!! The lips I think are hard to pull off, but nails – anyone can rock red nails.

Which is your favourite cover, the newsstand edition or the subscribers copy?dakotaellesubscover Cover Loving: Dakota Fanning For ELLE UK %tag
