Cover Loving: February Magazines Are All About Actresses

Vanity-Fair-jennifer-lawren

You can tell that it is award season as all the major magazines have gorgeous actresses gracing their covers. Vanity Fair has gone for Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, Harper’s Bazaar have an elegant looking Anne Hathaway, Glamour UK goes girlie with Emma Stone, and Victoria Beckham’s designs score two covers with both Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart wearing white on the covers of ELLE UK and V Magazine.

My favourite has to be the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence sporting her natural blonde locks in a fun cover for Vanity Fair. Shot by Ellen von Unwerth there is a softness in Jennifer’s face on the cover that is transformed into a complete vixen for the accompanying editorial and I love it. Sometimes Jennifer can be a little too serious – this cover is fun and relaxed and definitely brightened up my day.

Vanity-Fair-jennifer-lawrenemma-stone-glamour-magazineIt was close but my girl crush Emma Stone is my second favourite with her girlie cover for Glamour UK shot by Matthias Vriens-McGarth. Wearing a D&G botanical floral print, Emma is perfect for Glamour’s audience, I just wish they had gone for a different colour for the font – the orange is working for me. Anyone else was thinking this cover looks a little familiar? Well you would be right as a very similar shot from the same shoot was used for Glamour US back in May 2011.

Next up has to be Scarlett Johansson’s subscriber cover for ELLE UK’s February issue wearing a Burberry coat shot by Rankin. I like the newsstand version with her working a Victoria Beckham microbrush and lace dress but only from the ankles up, I am not loving those runway Manolo Blahnik for Victoria Beckham shoes. The subscriber cover is intriguing – I love the messy hair and seeing only one eye – Scarlett looks beautiful.

It was hard to decide who came next between Anne and Kristen, I am not blown away by either cover to be honest, but I think Harper’s Bazaar just takes it because of that gorgeous crystal-embellished Giorgio Armani strapless gown – all I can say about the rest is does Anne have a lazy eye?

Kristen doesn’t fair much better for me on V Magazine’s Spring 2013 issue. It isn’t that I don’t like the styling, the white Victoria Beckham vest with a black bra peeking out is fine, the make-up is grundy as you would expect from the Twilight actress – the problem I have is that I feel I have seen it all before – the wet hair, the moody look, the dark make-up around the eyes. Anyone else a little bored?

Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart Wows In Zuhair Murad

Who: Kristen Stewart surrounded by her men, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner

Where: At the London premiere of Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2

Wearing: A black sheer lace embroidered Zuhair Murad jumpsuit with an open back from the designer's autumn/winter 2012 couture collection

Verdict: There is a new found confidence with Kristen that is refreshing and this promo tour she really had embraced her sexy side and this is another wow moment, but unlike the LA premiere I actually prefer the peek-a-boo sheer top to the jumpsuit than the skirt of the gown.

The delicate embroidered detail is exquisite and makes this jumpsuit for me – I actually think this look rivals Emma Stone's Elie Saab tuxedo-style jumpsuit – what do you think?

Care about what the hunks were wearing? Well team Jacob won it for me with that sexy violet two-button notch-lapel Z Zegna suit, it was close though as team Edward looks just as good in Burberry.

So which team is best dressed for you? Bella, Jacob or Edward?

Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart In Zuhair Murad

Who: Kristen Stewart

Where: At the Los Angeles premiere of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California

Wearing: A nude strapless Zuhair Murad gown featuring lace and chiffon panelling and a corseted bodice from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a Cartier bracelet

Verdict: I was expecting something short, black, and tight, not feminine, romantic and sexy, and while I love the colour, the silhouette of the gown, and that she stepped out of her comfort zone I am just not loving this look a 100%.

For me this gown would have been perfection if the skirt had a light layer underneath, everything about this gown is divine, I just can’t help but think the nude is a little too much – what do you think?

What I do absolutely adore about this look has to be her old Hollywood-inspired hair, her side-swept locks makes such a statement and her bold lippy is just divine.

What do you think of Kristen’s look?

Teen Choice Awards: Kristen Stewart Shines In Roberto Cavalli

Who: Twilight actress Kristen Stewart

Where: At the Teen Choice Awards 2012 held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A silk printed Roberto Cavalli blazer from the Resort 2013 collection, teamed with a grey tee and leather trousers also by Roberto Cavalli, and finishing off her look were black Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: Yeah, Kristen embraced her tomboy vibe and wore a rock-chick look on the red carpet, or should I say backstage as she didn’t seem to make the red carpet, but either way I am so happy. We’ve seen her do awkward, quirky, and a little bit scary on the red carpet, but this look is by far the most comfortable I have seen her at an award ceremony, granted it was the tame Teen Choice Awards they’d love her in a bin bag, but still it was good to see.

What makes this masculine look work for me has to be that statement Roberto Cavalli blazer, I love the print, but I love the black lapels even more – this is one hot jacket and goes perfectly with her leather trews.

Adding a girlie vibe to her look was a cute side plait, which kind of reminded me of Alice Dellal, which in turn made me wonder where she has disappeared too – something for another post I am thinking, as well as her fierce Louboutins, her love of wearing Converse could have completely ruined this look.

I bet Kristen’s stylist was loving that all the other young actresses went for vibrant colours and fit and flare style dresses as she really did stand out when reviewing the fashion of this year’s Teen Choice Awards.

So what do you think – did you like Kristen’s style?[Pics: courtesy of Roberto Cavalli]
