Normally the summer magazine covers don’t really capture my attention, maybe because the magazine are hunting for more readers with free sunglasses, make-up or a tote so the cover gets hidden, but the August issue of Marie Claire featuring Diane Kruger is absolutely stunning that I just had to share. Shot by David Roemer, the German-born actress poses in a sixties-inspired photoshoot for the magazine, wearing looks from Dolce & Gabbana, Mary Katrantzou, Chanel, and Margaret Howell that have been perfectly styled by Arabella Greenhill.
OK, so not technically the same image, or even the same bodysuit, but after seeing the July Marie Claire cover (on the left) it just made me think instantly of the American edition’s March cover, and then a number of other Eva Mendes covers over the years. We all have our favourite pose, and it seems that Eva’s go-to move is ruffling her hair with hands on hip action, and working her sexy lips. Don’t get me wrong it is a great pose and she looks incredible on both Marie Claire covers above, but it just shows it isn’t just fashion bloggers
Marie Claire teased us all on Facebook yesterday with who was gracing their May cover, I think a lot of people guessed correctly that it was Cheryl Cole, but I have to admit I was blown away with how gorgeous she looks on the subscriber cover it makes me sad I don’t subscribe!!!

That isn’t to say she doesn’t look incredible on
I am not sure whether I have a style crush on Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf or Leighton Meester but I am loving her April 2012 Marie Claire USA cover. Even with a very busy cover, seriously the American’s do love their captions, Leighton looks gorgeous in a pop of yellow from that Reed Krakoff dress, and her hair and make-up is flawless. If the cover wasn’t enough the rest of the images from the ‘Drama Queen’ editorial also shot by Tesh in New York is super pretty, my favourite image has to be of Leighton in this Theyskens’ Theory gown – pure
As some of you may know I have been looking for Marie Claire’s Runway magazine since it came out, which was nearly two weeks ago, seriously hard thing to find but at the weekend in a service station this spring/summer 2012 round-up was finally mine! I have only really done a quick flick but on first glance I feel like it is trying too hard with its collage-effect front cover, which is very similar to ELLE Collections that has been going for a number of seasons. I do however prefer the larger size, it has a bit more impact. As
