Cover Loving: W Magazine’s Movie Issue By Tim Walker

W-Mag-emma-stone

It has been a while since a magazine cover actually excited me like these Tim Walker masterpieces for W Magazine’s annual movie issue featuring the top nominees ahead of the award season. Walker has snapped 39 nominees from Emma Stone, looking like a broken doll, to Julianne Moore, looking like she could be sisters with Effie from The Hunger Games, and even a very creepy Bradley Cooper dressed in a white.

There are 7 amazing covers, but for me the stand-outs have to be Emma Stone’s and Reese Witherspoon, I really love the ’70s free-love aesthetic, and seeing movie stars transformed into eccentric characters is just an another reason why Walker is a master at bridging the gap between fashion and art.

As well as the covers the accompanying editorial is just as strong with Jessica ChastainAmy Adams and Shailene Woodley looking equally eccentric. I love that magazines like W Magazine take a chance with Walker as these images wouldn’t look out of place in an art gallery, I actually think that is where they belong, they deserve to be hung up on walls.

What are you thoughts about W Magazine’s movie issue covers?

Met Gala 2014: Battle Of The Pink

After the disappointed red carpet at last year’s Punk-themed Met Gala I was thrilled that this year’s event was celebrating Charles James the master courtier that really understood drama, sculpture, class, and what makes a great red carpet dress – generally something huge that makes a statement – so I am pleased that the celebs attendees really honoured his vision.

One of my favourite looks had to be Reese Witherspoon in this strapless Barbie-pink Stella McCartney gown. Everything from the colour to the sculptured take on the sweetheart neckline to the way it contoured her body and the slight train, everything about this look is perfection.

If the dress wasn’t enough to make me squeal with excited her Hollywood glamour hair and make-up sure would, the Oscar-winning star was simple flawless, I just loved the matching hot pink lips. I can’t believe that this is Reese’s first time at the Met Gala – this is a great debut look.

 

There were many hues of pink on the night and two came from Stella McCartney, to complement Reese’s hot pink gown, the gorgeous Kate Bosworth looked divine in this dusky pink slinky spaghetti strap dress. Her statuesque model figure really pulls off this great dress, which has sexy little cut-outs under the bust. But as much as I love the dress it is the styling of the accessories and hair-do that I adore the most – I love that she wasn’t afraid to add sparkle!!!

 

Combining an element of both Reese’s and Kate’s looks was Emma Stone who look modern, young and fabulous in this striking-yet-simple custom two-piece pink and magenta, colour-block Thakoon ensemble. What I love is that it isn’t a ballgown, I know that was kind of the theme of the night and this look might not quite have cut it, but for me Emma showed a contemporary look that still honoured Charles James with the flowing wrap skirt. Plus with hair like that she definitely had to be featured – love, love, love!!!

One last pink look that caught my attention was Taylor Swift who wore a custom blush pink embellished satin Oscar de la Renta gown teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. While the front of this gown was exquisite, well it was crafted by Oscar de la Renta and embroidered with gold sequins, pearl beads and rose metallic leaves, for me this gown was all about the drama in the back – check out that fabulous bow and train. Stunning in an Old Hollywood glamour kind of way.

It is hard to choose who wins the battle of the pink, but I think Reese in that stunning hot pink number just gets it. Who was your favourite girl in pink?

 

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Emma Stone In Atelier Versace

Emma-Stone-Versace-

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the world premiere of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ held at The Odeon in London

Wearing: A custom-made yellow Atelier Versace gown with pleated detailing, statement padded shoulders,  an open-back and Swarovski embellishments, teamed with David Webb yellow gold necklace

Verdict: I love yellow on the red carpet, from subtle mustard hues to vibrant shades like this – it always makes an impact and is perfect for a spring premiere. I also love how the yellow contrasts beautifully against her red locks, which might I add is impeccable styled like the old-Hollywood screen-siren that she is.

Back to the dress, which I think is perfection, not only the colour but the cut, the pleats, the statement shoulders and the waistband, I love everything about this look – Emma Stone has really got red carpet dresses down she always looks stunning.

Finishing off her look with red lippy just makes it pure perfection from head-to-toe!!!

Are you a fan of Emma Stone’s vibrant look?

Cover Loving: Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue – Emma Stone In Bed With Ben & Bradley

Vanity-fair-march-cover

Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue is always one of my favourite magazines of the year and the cover is always highly anticipated and I have been wondering how many A-lists would fit on the cover this year – well it seems this year they only needed three – Emma Stone, Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper.

Shot by Bruce Weber, this is Vanity Fair’s 19th Hollywood Issue, and whereas the cover may not wow me as it has in recent years, I do love that Ben and Bradley are wearing bear and gorilla costumes, and I can’t wait to pick up a copy as the mag features more than 75 different stars in the mags tribute to the town.

The full gate-fold cover is below and it also includes youngest-ever best-actress nominee Quvenzhané Wallis, a raunchy looking Olivia Wilde as a showgirl and my latest red carpet crush Kerry Washington. Inside there are also shots of Halle Berry, Jonah Hill, Armie Hammer, Bella Heathcote and Eddy Redmayne dancing with a bear, as well as Tom Hanks, Amy Adams, Ewan McGregor and Selena Gomez. Literally everyone in Hollywood it seems.

What do you think of the cover and will you be picking up the Hollywood issue?
