Cover Loving: Cate Blanchett In Celine For US Vogue

Vogue cate blanchett cover Cover Loving: Cate Blanchett In Celine For US Vogue %tag

It is strange that we haven’t even had Christmas yet and spring collections are already gracing covers. For January, US Vogue has gone for the gorgeous Cate Blanchett, one of my favourite red carpet stars, and she looks stunning in a Celine dress.

As well as loving the cover star, it is nice to see Céline on the cover, even though the French fashion house gets critical acclaim its doesn’t often grace covers and this arty, paint-stroke dress looks amazing,

For some, featuring Cate seems like a safe choice as a cover star, but for me her beauty means I will always pick up magazines with her on the front. As well as adoring the cover, shot by Craig McDean, I love the accompanying editorial with Cate wearing incredible looks from Dolce & Gabbana, Armani Prive and Nina Ricci.

Will you be picking up the January issue of US Vogue?

Editorial Loving: Vogue Japan’s Hitchcock-Inspired Beauty Shoot

Vogue Japan Sept 2 Editorial Loving: Vogue Japans Hitchcock Inspired Beauty Shoot %tag

I have had a long love affair with Vogue Japan, granted it is harder to translate than my other international magazines from France and Italy, but come on it so worth buying just for the gorgeous and creative editorials.

Normally I pass on by the beauty pages without getting pulled in, but for the September issue of Vogue Japan this Hitchcock-inspired editorial ‘Vertigo In Her Eyes’ plays out a beautiful-yet-dramatic narrative to showcase some incredible beauty looks.

Model Patricia Van Der Vliet has been transformed into the archetypal blonde heroine, wearing a series of 1950s inspired looks, to play out scenes from some of Hitchcock’s most famous films including The Birds, Rear Window, Psycho and Vertigo.

Captured by photographer Lacey, the hyper-stylised beauty by Lisa Houghton in this editorial is breathtaking – I love the glamorous cat-eye liner, the round-tip nails and the vibrant-yet-slightly cold colour combinations, which works perfectly with the drama and suspense of the Hitchcock concept.

Are you a fan of this Hitchcock-inspired editorial?

Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence For Vogue

wpid Photo 10 Aug 2013 2308 Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence For Vogue %tag

So the September issues have been a little hit and miss this year for me. I loved Katy Perry’s ELLE UK’s subscription issue but wasn’t taken with her flamingo pose on the newsstand version, I thought Glamour US played safe putting Jennifer Aniston on the cover I much preferred the Chloë Moretz editorial, and while I was a little bored seeing Sarah Jessica Parker in another gold dress on Harper’s Bazaar US, I did quite like Nina Dobrev’s awkward pose for Cosmo.

It has to be said though, other than the new-look Lucky magazine with Blake Lively in that exquisite blue Gucci coat, I haven’t really been blown me away – until I saw the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of Vogue US.

Since it was revealed last month that the Hunger Games star was going to be gracing the September issue I have been excited to see it – and I think Mario Testino has captured a gorgeous cover. Granted it is more of a ‘beauty’ than ‘fashion’ shot but I think it is perfection and she really is glowing.

I know for some there will be criticism that this isn’t a fashion shot, maybe a full-length would have been more appropriate for a September issue, to show off the fashion, but for me I adore the close-up shot of the actress, especially as it shows off her new shorter hair.

A few snaps of the accompanying editorial have also been spotted online, I am loving the vintage feel to them being in black and white and I can’t wait to see in print, as well as read the interview with the cover line “unguarded” I am expecting some juicy!!!

Are you a fan of Jennifer Lawrence’s Vogue US cover?

Editorial Loving: Homeland Gets Fashionable For US Vogue

Vogue august homeland 2 Editorial Loving: Homeland Gets Fashionable For US Vogue %tag

I am a huge Claire Danes and Homeland fan so I was excited when I heard that the actress would be the star of US Vogue’s August issue, however, the cover is just a little blah, which disappointed me a little until I saw the amazing editorial shot by Annie Leibovitz accompanying it.

The espionage-themed photo shoot, captured on Homeland’s set, shows Claire Danes as her bipolar CIA agent character Carrie in a high-fashion editorial spread alongside her hottie co-star Damian Lewis and I love it.

I love the concept, the staging of recreating prominent scenes and scenarios from the show, and most of all the contrast of the high-fashion styling – how amazing would it be if Carrie actually did wear Victoria Beckham on a stack-out!!!

You have Claire sprawled out on a bed wearing Narciso Rodriguez gown, admiring herself in the interrogation mirror in a Calvin Klein Collection dress that Zoe Saldana wore while promoting Star Trek, and looking a little retro in the car wearing a matching Hermès lambskin jacket and skirt.

I just wish that the cover, which only saving grace is an amazing Burberry trench coat, was more explosive and representative of the accompanying editorial.

What do you think – are you a fan of US Vogue’s August cover?

Cover Loving: Katy Perry Scores Her First US Vogue Cover

US vogue July Katy perry Cover Loving: Katy Perry Scores Her First US Vogue Cover %tag

So the rumours were true, Katy Perry has finally been given her first US Vogue cover for the July issue, and she looks beautiful and ethereal in an off-the-shoulder embroidered floral dress, which looks to be Valentino but is actually Rodarte, teamed with a super bold red lippy.

The singer will be opening up about her love life in the accompanying interview, according to the cover lines, but as it doesn’t go online at Vogue.com until Tuesday, June 18, so we can only wonder if it will discuss her rumoured ‘blossoming friendship’ with Robert Pattinson.

Shot by Annie Leibovitz the cover really does show how photogenic Katy Perry is, she looks incredible and I think that is helped by the simple styling and her flawless make-up that really shows off her gorgeous porcelain skin.

I really do love it, but is anyone else thinking it looks a little like Rihanna’s cover last year, which was also shot by Annie Leibovitz?

If I wasn’t already wanting to buy to see more of Katy Perry – the clever peeps over at Vogue put ‘Rebooting Balenciaga – All Eyes On Alexander Wang’ as one of the other cover lines – I can’t wait to read that!!!

Are you pleased to see Katy Perry on her first Vogue cover?

Met Gala 2013 Buzz: So Who’s Taking Who???

Diana kruger prada Met Gala 2013 Buzz: So Whos Taking Who??? %tagEach year after the Oscars and the award season has finished I have to admit I go through a little lull when it comes to red carpet appearances, premieres are fine but they just don’t have the glamour of a big award show, which is why I am always pleased when May comes around as it has two big fashion events – the Cannes Film Festival and the Met Gala.

This coming Monday, May 6, the very best in fashion will be strutting their stuff in celebration of Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, and I love that the red carpet event is kind of a mash-up of the Oscars and fashion week, where designers showcase their very best gowns with most specially created for the event, on some of the biggest stars. It always seems to bring glamour and drama and some of the best looks of the year.

Last year was a Prada affair thanks to Miuccia Prada being co-chair, Diane Kruger in that gorgeous purple gown is still one of my favourite Met Gala looks, well this year is bound to be all about Givenchy as Riccardo Tisci is on the panel and his co-chair is Rooney Mara.

As well as enjoying the red carpet, I love the anticipation and lead-up to the event, guessing what people will wear, and who’s dressing who, which means for the week before I am addicted to WWD, the NY Post and the New York Times – they always have the best scoops.

So want to know the latest rumours? Well I have put down some of my favs below:

  • Tommy Hilfiger has announced that his table will be filled with a rather odd mix including Zooey Deschanel, Nicki Minaj, Lily Aldridge, Thalia Mottola, Debbie Harry and Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill – I can’t imagine Nicki Minaj in TH!
  • Jennifer Lopez will be a Michael Kors girl for the night – I can’t wait to see this
  • Iron Man’s Gwyneth Paltrow is going with Valentino – I wonder if her look will top her sexy Prada mini from last year?
  • There are no surprises regarding who Dior is taking – Oscar winning-actress Jennifer Lawrence and French beauty Marion Cotillard – I am just hoping for something customised
  • One of my most interesting reports is that Alexander Wang is designing a custom Balenciaga look for Julianne Moore – that’s going to be amazing
  • Sienna Miller is apparently attending with Burberry, well no surprise as she is rumoured to be the label’s new face
  • Diane von Furstenberg is taking Emma Roberts
  • Jessica Alba is set to attend with Tory Burch
  • Topshop is getting in on the action again with Jaime King, plus the retailer is taking Julianne Hough
  • Elizabeth Banks is going with Brian Atwood – so we can be assured her shoes will be hot

No word on whether anyone will be wearing Donna Karan, Prada, Versace, Alexander McQueen, or Elie Saab, or even if Nina Dobrev, Anne Hathaway, Diane Kruger or Sarah Jessica Parker will be attending – I have all my fingers and toes crossed!!!

If I hear anything I will be sure to keep you updated via my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Who are you excited about seeing and who do you want to attend?

Editorial Loving: Grace Coddington Styles Carey Mulligan For US Vogue

Vogue carey mulligan 5 Editorial Loving: Grace Coddington Styles Carey Mulligan For US Vogue %tag

There is something about the roaring Twenties that just makes a fashion editorials look even more glamorous, I think it is all those sequins and beads, the decadence of the jewellery and the exquisite headpieces, I absolutely adore The Great Gatsby tribute in the May issue of American Vogue.

Starring Carey Mulligan, this is one of my favourite celebrity editorials I have seen from Vogue in a while, I love that they have kept her in character as Daisy Buchanan, as it just makes me more excited for the film to come out next month.

Styled by Grace Coddington, I am in love with all the flapper fashion from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Chanel, Nina Ricci, and Oscar de la Renta, as well as the incredible set designs and location. Everything about the shoot, captured by Mario Testino, looks glamorous, expensive, and exquisite, everything you expect from the era and more.

The only thing that I am not too keen on is the cover, not the Oscar de la Renta gown, that is divine – I love the lime green colour, but Carey’s expression – she looks in pain.

What do you think of Vogue’s Great Gatsby editorial?
