Cover Loving: February Magazines Are All About Actresses

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.

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?

V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch

JLoVMagazine1 V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch %tag

Wow, how gorgeously fierce does Jennifer Lopez look on the cover of the sports issue of V Magazine, I seriously don’t think I have seen this side of her in an editorial shoot before and I love it. Shot by Mario Testino, J-Lo shows that she still packs a punch for the spring 2012 issue, but what I love most is how far removed this boxing-inspired spread is from her normally sexy glamour approach.

Ever since Jennifer Lopez joined American Idol I have to admit I have seen her in a different light, OK she doesn’t generally stray far from her trademark sexy curve hugging looks on the red carpet, but what she always brings is an attitude that just excites, and that is what I see in this editorial. I don’t think many stars would want to pose in boxing gear and still look hot!!!JLoVMagazine2 V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch %tagJLoVMagazine5 V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch %tagJLoVMagazine4 V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch %tagJLoVMagazine3 V Magazine: Jennifer Lopez Packs A Punch %tag

This black and white picture is one of my favourites from the editorial spread – even scrunching up her face she looks gorgeous. This has got to be the best editorial spread of Jennifer Lopez I have ever seen – what do you think do you like?

Cover Loving: Lady Gaga Graces V Magazine

Blighty has gone a little Lady Gaga crazy the past couple of days with her being in the country for Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and she is looking amazing on the cover of the 71st issue of V magazine.

These covers shot by renowned fashion photography duo Inez and Vinoodh are for publications The Asian Issue. Admittedly, it does seem a little strange that they chose someone who isn’t actually Asian but hey, it does coincide with her new monthly column for the magazine.

This teaser cover above is my favourite as the make-up detailing with sequins and feathers is exquisite to make it look like a butterfly on her face. I can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

Of course as it is Lady Gaga and styled by Nicola Formichetti, this is also a Mugler special with all clothes coming from the autumn/winter 2011 collection.

The 71st issue is on newsstands now; or why not buy the special hard-bound collector’s edition, which comes with an exclusive t-shirt for $99, with 10% of all proceeds going towards the Japan Relief efforts.
