Cover Loving: Angelina Jolie For ELLE US

Elle US Angelina Jolie Cover Loving: Angelina Jolie For ELLE US %tag

Oooh I do love a black and white magazine cover, especially when it is as gorgeous as this, Angelina Jolie looks stunning on the June cover of US ELLE. Captured by Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane, the whole shoot is striped back and just beautiful, on the cover Angelina looks relaxed in her signature colour, black, wearing minimal make-up that shows off her incredible cheekbones and her hair down. This is sublime and one of my favourite covers in a long time.

The cover is accompanied by a 16-page spread, that is huge, which will also be featured in more than 20 editions of ELLE worldwide and I am hoping it appears in my subscription copy of the UK version. Wearing exclusively Saint Laurent, well that’s obvious isn’t it, it is more than just a look book for the French fashion house because it is Angelina, if this was a model I would have thought it was a little over kill, but I like that she is basically showcasing the label’s monochrome pieces.

I also can’t wait to read the whole interview, the Maleficent star talks about her relationship with Brad, why she never thought she would have children, and casting her own daughter in her up-coming flick, basically it looks like ELLE covered it all.

What are your thoughts on Angelina Jolie’s latest magazine cover?

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Graces ELLE UK’s September Issue

ELLE Sept Katy Perry sub Cover Loving: Katy Perry Graces ELLE UKs September Issue %tag

I am a big fan of Katy Perry, more so now that I know that she counts Minnie Mouse as one of her style icons, and I was excited that she was to grace the September issue of ELLE UK - but then I saw the newsstand cover and I was a little underwhelmed, mainly because of the flamingo pose.

Don’t get me wrong, Katy looks amazing in a checked Dolce & Gabbana peplum top with matching shorts, and I understand that those Christian Louboutin boots are hot – but come on that pose really is more of an editorial shot than a cover pose for me.

I prefer the simplicity of the subscriber cover, which really shows off Katy’s beauty and her incredible eyes. Granted this cover does remind me a little of Emma Stone’s Vogue UK cover from last year – but I think Katy’s makes more of an impact as it is all about her face.

Shot by Mariano Vivanco, the accompanying editorial is just as strong with Katy wearing looks from Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang’s autumn/winter 2013 collections.

The issue hits newsstands on Wednesday, July 31 and I can’t wait for my subscriber copy to drop through the letterbox.

Which cover do you prefer – the subscribers or the newsstand?

Cover Loving: Victoria Beckham For ELLE UK

ELLE VB March 13 scan Cover Loving: Victoria Beckham For ELLE UK %tag

I love, love, love the March issue of ELLE UK starring Victoria Beckham and so it seems does everyone who follows me on Twitter. This morning I tweeted a picture of the subscriber issue that dropped through my door and everyone went a little crazy for it and with good reason it is the best ELLE cover for a while.

When I saw the newsstand cover last week, see below, with VB wearing a Burberry leather jacket with a lace body I was blown away by how incredible she looked, but I was completely floored with the subscriber cover – wow, wow, wow – that Hussein Chalayan neon peplum top looks insane on her.

We’ve seen Victoria Beckham look amazing before on magazine covers, I have to be honest I do have a girl crush on her, but there is something special about this shoot snapped by Carter Smith that I love. The styling is cool, VB wears not only her own designs but also spring/summer 2013 looks from Lanvin and Miu Miu, I love her hair long, and I think I need to try out Burberry Beauty as they did all her make-up.

I haven’t checked out the whole magazine yet, I haven’t even finished my first flick through as I wanted to share the cover, but the mag has had a little re-vamp I have noticed it in the fonts and layout and it is looking good, and this March issue is huge with more than 400 pages. Now all I need to do is find a quiet spot to take it all in!!!

So what do you think of the Victoria Beckham covers and will you be buying the March issue of ELLE?

Cover Loving: Kylie Goes Bleach Blonde For ELLE

Elle Kylie Cover Loving: Kylie Goes Bleach Blonde For ELLE %tag

I am a huge fan of Kylie Minogue but I nearly didn’t recognise her on the cover of the January 2013 issue of ELLE UK. Sporting bleach blonde hair, which for some reason makes me think of Gwen Stefani, the pint-sized popstar is looking hot in a lilac dress from Christopher Kane’s spring/summer 2013 collection.

Captured by photographer Cuneyt Akeroglu, this is Kylie’s seventh ELLE cover and I really love it, even with the flamingo pose. I am really looking forward to seeing the subscriber cover and the accompanying editorial, especially as it says on the cover that she is wearing British fashion, which is nice as mostly we see Kylie in Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli or Pucci.

The January issue of ELLE hits newsstands on Wednesday – will you be picking it up?

So which is your favourite – the newsstand or subscriber cover?

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: It’s Britney Biatch!!!

BritneyElle Cover Loving: Its Britney Biatch!!! %tag

I don’t hide the fact that I absolutely love Britney, no matter what this girl rocks for me, and I can’t wait to add the October issue of ELLE to my very large collection of Britney Spear magazine covers.

Styled by Joe Zee and shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Britney looks incredible in this studded Versace dress. Granted it isn’t the most original of covers, it isn’t going to push Gwen Stefani’s ELLE UK cover off my best October cover, but I do love how hot Britney looks in these shots.

In the accompanying editorial, the X-Factor judge looks ready to hit the stage in one of the shots as she works The Blonds Swarovski-crystal-embellished bloomers, with a Dolce & Gabbana satin bra, a striking blue Jason Wu leather jacket and cut-out satin Roger Vivier boots. But it was the appearance of her fiancé Jason Trawick that surprised me – I have to say it, they do look cute together.

In the interview Britney chats about her fiancé, how she doesn’t care about the paparazzi anymore, and her laid-back fashion style:

“I love my jeans and my sweats-I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup-and hair-ready every time I  go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch.”

I can’t wait to pick up this issue – what do you think of Britney’s latest magazine cover?

Cover Loving: Selena Gomez Goes Sexy For ELLE

SelenaGomezElle Cover Loving: Selena Gomez Goes Sexy For ELLE %tag

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.
