Cover Loving: Cameron Diaz For ELLE UK

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.

On 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!!!

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

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.

Cover Loving: Ashley Olsen Gets My Attention On ELLE

My subscriber copy of ELLE’s April issue has only just arrived, it has been killing me seeing pictures of the Olsen twins all over the Internet and not having my own copy, I have to admit I nearly bought the newsstand version yesterday just so I could read it, but as they only had the Mary-Kate one I decided against it.

I am glad I waited as Ashley looks amazing on the subscriber cover wearing a gorgeous crystal and gabardine coat by Prada. I am not sure when Mary-Kate became my favourite Olsen twin, I am sure it was some cool outfit many years ago, but after seeing the covers and editorial in ELLE I have most certainly changed allegiances to Ashley – seriously don’t think I have seen her look this good.

Ashley’s newsstand cover is also just as pretty, I am loving her Swarovski crystal and sequinned lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana – you have to check out the editorial spread inside, as soon as you see the fringing on the dress you’ll understand why – it is a wow dress.

Is it just me that was hoping for a duo cover of them together? I have included a picture of them both at the bottom for the editorial as I think it is a great image – I wonder if they tried to make this work for a subscriber cover. And is anyone else a little surprised that they both didn’t get two covers?
