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

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.

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: Selena Gomez Goes Sexy For ELLE

Wow, what a transformation Selena Gomez has been given by Joe Zee, of course Joe is known for creating stunning celebrity editorials especially for young starlets, I still remember the Lauren Conrad shoot, but I have to ask is Selena really ELLE’s target audience?

I have to be honest and say on paper I don’t think so, but as soon as I saw the July cover and the accompanying editorial with a very sexed up Selena I have to say that she looks absolutely stunning, and I can see that the magazine is positioning her as the new Hollywood ‘It’ girl.

The cover itself shot by Carter Smith is exquisite, that gorgeous black and gold floral applique Dolce & Gabbana corset dress from the autumn/winter 2012 collection is divine on her. I also loving the accessories especially that cute heart ring from David Yurman.

Selena continues looking hot in a very high-end fashion spread showing off her feminine assets in a gorgeous metal Yves Saint Laurent chain dress, a Vera Wang bra teamed with pyjama-style Marni trousers, and those incredible Brain Atwood colour-block heels. There is also a Lanvin peplum dress and a Balmain top worn as a dress, I think all that was missing was a couture number but I am sure that will come!!!

I think one thing that is for sure is that everyone will notice Selena Gomez in a different light after this magazine hits newsstands on June 19.
