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?

Cover Loving: Kati Nescher In Givenchy For British Vogue

vogue feb 2013 Cover Loving: Kati Nescher In Givenchy For British Vogue %tag

It looks like Vogue didn’t get the memo about using an actress on the cover of their February issue, instead they’ve gone for a Kate Middleton look-a-likey, better known as Russian model Kati Nescher.

It seems Vogue is all about the models, which I like, and for the second month in a row, Kati follows fellow model Kate Lupton on the cover, which looks set to continue next month, as rumours are circulating that Cara Delevingne will grace the March issue.

I have to be honest I am not hundred percent sold on this cover shot by Patrick Demarchelier. I love the gorgeous Givenchy dress, monochrome with ruffles – totally adore, I even love the side-on pose, the elegance, and the red taglines, and I have to salute Vogue for going with a model.

But, what I am not loving is how the styling of the hair seems to have aged poor Kati, maybe they took the Princess Kate reference a little too far, but for me it doesn’t work with the ‘modern glamour’ tagline. Plus is anyone else a little distracted by her ear???

Maybe I have to see it in person to fully appreciate – what do you think of Vogue’s February cover?

Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani In Saint Laurent For Vogue

vogue jan gwen Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani In Saint Laurent For Vogue %tag

Gwen Stefani is certainly having a moment when it comes to magazine covers. This year I have already gushed about her divine Harper’s Bazaar September issue, her abs on the Marie Claire cover, and her digital print mash-up on the October issue of ELLE UK wearing Peter Pilotto and McQ by Alexander McQueen. Well it seems American Vogue wanted to end the year on a high with the release of the January issue with Gwen wearing an ensemble from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane’s spring/summer 2013 collection.

Captured by Annie Leibovitz this is a gorgeous cover. I love the pose on the piano, the ruffles, the sparkly jacket, the pop of red on her lips and even the oversized felt hat – this cover is so memorising that I can let them off for putting too many cover lines all over her.

What do you think of Gwen’s latest magazine cover?

Trailer Loving: In Vogue – The Editor’s Eye

OMG I know I am about a week behind on getting excited about this but have you seen the trailer yet for HBO’s documentary ‘In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye’?

I loved, loved, loved The September Issue and this looks to be even better, and I so wish I could be part of Wintour’s “dysfunctional family”. This documentary is part of Vogue’s 120th anniversary and unlike The September Issue which looked at one issue, this films draws from Vogue’s archives and takes a look at some of the world’s most influential fashion images, which I am sure will translate as a visual masterpiece.

As well as featuring Anna Wintour and her fashion editors Grace Coddington, Tonne Goodman, Polly Allen Mellen, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Camilla Nickerson, Phyllis Posnick and Babs Simpson, this documentary also includes interviews with Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker, as well as fashion designers Alber Elbaz, Nicolas Ghesquière, Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang – what a stellar line-up!!!

I get jealous a lot by people living in America, but more so when a documentary like this doesn’t have a UK release date – lucky Americans you can view Vogue: The Editor’s Eye on December 6, Brits I will keep you informed if I find out if a UK channel has taken it.

Anyone else excited about seeing it? I notice there is already a hashtag #InVogue so I will be refreshing that like made on Twitter on Thursday.

Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence Covers Vogue UK

VogueJenniferLawrence Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence Covers Vogue UK %tagOoh I have been waiting for this cover since I found out Jennifer Lawrence was Vogue’s November cover star, and it doesn’t disappointed. Shot by Alasdair McLellan, Jennifer sparkles in a gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana lace gown from the autumn/winter 2012 collection.

There is something about Jennifer that goes beyond her Katniss character in The Hunger Games, there is a beauty about her that is unconventional, I am not going to lie that isn’t to mean that she isn’t drop-dead Gorgeous – I wish I looked like that – but there is more to her beauty than other Hollywood starlets that excites me.

I was looking forward to her W cover but they went too far, this cover has a charm about it, I like the pose with the hand on hip and shot to the side and her hair and make-up is flawless. I can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

What do you make of Jennifer’s latest cover? Will you buying the November issue of Vogue?
