Cover Loving: Lupita Nyong’o Nails Her First Vogue Cover

I am so pleased that Lupita Nyong’o is gracing her first Vogue cover, she really did make the 2014 award season *do you remember her white Calvin Klein gown*, and I am even more pleased that it is a great cover.

Shot by Mikael Jansson, Lupita looks incredible in this Marrakech photoshoot wearing vibrant designs by Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Vera Wang, Jonathan Saunders, Givenchy and Prada that gorgeous red and purple print dress looks insane on her.

I think one of my favourite shots has to be where Lupita is reclining against a red velvet couch wearing a printed Rodarte gown, I love that the prints are so similar that her beauty really becomes the focal point of the picture, and I think the gorgeous Moroccan setting was just genius. So beautiful.

I think this will be the first of many major covers for Lupita and I can’t wait to see what else this gorgeous actress has to share.

Are you pleased that Lupita has scored her first Vogue cover?

Cover Loving: Lady Gaga For Vogue US September Issue

VogueGaga Cover Loving: Lady Gaga For Vogue US September Issue %tag

It seems every time I do a September issue post another one gets released and of course it had to be Vogue US’ special anniversary issue starring a very statuesque Lady Gaga. This is Gaga’s second American Vogue cover, do you remember her pink wig for the March 2011 issue, well for September it seems that Gaga has gone blonde with a wig that kind of reminded me of muff handwarmer – sorry but it does.

Shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by Grace Coddington I am excited to see the accompanying editorial. The cover itself is going to take a little getting used to – I love the incredible Marc Jacobs gown – the silhouette and colour is insane, and I also love that they haven’t gone too crazy with the text. I just think her hair is going to make this cover a little bit like Marmite – you will either love or hate it.

On Vogue.com they have a preview of Gaga’s interview and her accompanying editorial, of course it features a naked Gaga, did you see her fragrance advert she does love being naked, and very similar to Gwen Stefani there is an oversized pink hat involved, this time designed by Steven Jones.

The magazine will hit newsstands on August 14 and I for one will be rushing to snap up this issue, not only does this cover deserve to be seen in print, the September Vogue issue is its biggest ever – a staggering 916 pages – serious fashion overload!!!

What do you think of Lagy Gaga’s September issue – do you love or hate it?

Cover Loving: Marion Cotillard Is The August Cover Queen

ParisVogue Cover Loving: Marion Cotillard Is The August Cover Queen %tag

I thought August would have been a ‘cover-off’ between Spider-Man’s Emma Stone and Catwoman Anne Hathaway, as come on both make incredible cover stars and it would be the battle of the summer blockbusters, but it seems I was blindsided by the gorgeous French beauty Marion Cotillard who appears on no less than four different covers in four different countries for August making her a very in-demand actress.

The French star has taken covers on both American and Paris Vogue, as well as Marie Claire UK, and then this week another one was unveiled from ELLE South Africa, and what surprises me is that each cover is completely different but equally beautiful.

I have been trying to decide on my favourite, it is hard, I love the up-close beauty of the Paris Vogue, I love the Ralph Lauren Collection velvet blazer that she is wearing for American Vogue, and she looks incredible on both covers for Marie Claire – minus the fact that they have chopped part of her head off, that pink jacquard peplum top is divine, and then there is that exquisite Dior dress on the ELLE South Africa cover. How do you choose when they are all so good!!!

So were you surprised with Marion’s cover pulling power? And do tell me which cover is your favourite – I am swaying towards Paris Vogue just for the beauty of Marion’s face – but it is hard when that Dior gown looks as incredible as it does for ELLE!!!

Emma Stone: Vogue US vs Teen Vogue

Vogue US – July 2012 vs Teen Vogue – August 2012

My style crush on Emma Stone is getting nearly as bad as my one for Diane Kruger, I am not sure why but she just has the unique ability to make me smile. I completely adore her girl-next-door vibe mixed in with a chameleon who can work nearly any look, add in her goofy personality and her stunning beauty and she has it all going on. Seriously her Revlon beauty ads make me look twice, and her red carpet looks keep on wowing me.

With all that love I am so pleased to see Emma finally grace the cover of American Vogue, and what a beauty of a cover it is, surely the best one of the year so far. Shot by Mario Testino, Emma looks divine in a look from Nina Ricci’s autumn/winter 2012 collection on the July 2012 cover, and the accompanying editorial is just as gorgeous featuring looks from Jil Sander, Ralph Lauren, Prada, and Givenchy.

Vogue US – July 2012

The Teen Vogue August cover, shot by Josh Olins, isn’t quite as striking as the American Vogue cover, but come on how adorable do Emma and Andrew Garfield look together. What I will say is that the purple Louis Vuitton dress that Emma is wearing is such a good colour on her, but I have to be honest I would have preferred it if they had gone for a solo Emma cover – especially if they’d used my favourite floral McQ Alexander McQueen dress that Victoria Justice wore to the Met Gala.

The rest of the editorial is cute, chemistry isn’t amazing considering they are an actual couple as well as co-stars in the latest Spider-Man flick, but I am loving the use of Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Prada, Calvin Klein, and how adorable does Emma look in that Marc by Marc Jacobs hat.

US Vogue: A Predictable Jennifer Lopez Cover

JLoVogue US Vogue: A Predictable Jennifer Lopez Cover %tag

Last week I brought you Jennifer Lopez doing her best Million Dollar Baby impression with her very unexpected sporty cover for V Magazine, well it seems April is J-Lo’s month as she is also fronting American Vogue’s Shape issue with a more traditional glamorous look.

When I saw this cover, I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t the other Jennifer – Lawrence that is promoting The Hunger Games as I am obsessed with the books, but I have to admit I don’t dislike it, however I am not wowed by it. Jennifer Lopez looks stunning in what looks like a Bottega Veneta gown in the cover shot taken by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, but after seeing her do something completely different for V Magazine this shot is just nice, nothing more, nothing less. Am I being a little harsh?

What did surprise me was that Vogue seem to be having a love-in with singers lately – February went to Taylor Swift, March to the lovely Adele and now J-Lo. I am hoping for something a little different and more creative for May.
