Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Mary-Kate Olsen appears on 3 covers for the Marie Claire US September 2010 issue.

I’m not a fan of multiple covers, because the cover I want is never available in my newsagent.

My favourite is the Pucci cover. Mostly because of the stunning dress, but also because she’s teasing us with a rare smile.

On the other covers which – were shot by Tesh MK wears a military Burberry Prorsum coat and a sequined Gucci dress with feathered sleeves.

The young designer talks to Marie Claire about talks about her fast-paced lifestyle, running a fashion house in New York City, The Row, her passion for clothing, losing her friend Heath Ledger and how she feels about having been a child actor.

On loving her fashion lines: “It’s kind of like a mask to hide behind.” Read more…

Halle Berry historically became the first black woman to win Best Actress at the Oscars.

She makes history again today by being only the second black woman to appear on the cover of American Vogue’s September 2010 issue.

Naomi Campbell was the first. If you watched “The September Issue” documentary, you’ll remember how Anna Wintour said back in 1989 it caused “huge controversy to put a black girl on the September cover”.

Oh how times have changed. 21 years on we’re only focusing how beautiful Halle looks on the cover.

Mario Testino shot Halle wearing 6 velvet dresses by Giorgio Armani, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Escada.

Velvet is synonymous with Fall, so it’s the perfect way to put as in a Fall mindset as the Fall looks hit the stores.

Halle talks about being a mum to 2-year-old daughter Nahla and her split with Nahla’s father, Gabriel Aubry.

This 726 page issue goes on sale in the US August 24.

You can read Halle’s whole interview at Vogue.com.

Here are some extracts:

On the so-called Oscar curse: “People win Oscars, and then it seems like they fall off the planet. And that’s partly because a huge expectation walks in the room and sits right down on top of your head. The moment I won the Oscar, I felt the teardown the very next day. I thought, if I’m going down, I’m going down taking chances and daring to risk. Hence …Catwoman.” Read more…

I adore Rachel Zoe’s editorial for Harper’s Bazaar which features in the September 2010 issue.

Not only because it shows off her quirky personality, but it also shows her in clothes that aren’t dwarfing her tiny frame or boho in style.

Using her now famous “I Die” catch-phase, the editorial shows her dying at the hands of fashion designers like Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Brian Atwood.

We all love Rachel because of her infectious enthusiasm for fashion, and designers feel the same way about her.

Marc Jacobs: “Rachel’s energy is electrifying…and often shocking!”

Michael Kors: “The perfect accessory can make the difference between looking blah and totally to die for.”

Vera Wang: “I only want to kill Rachel when I don’t land one of her fabulous clients for the Oscars!”

My favourite picture is the Marc Jacobs pictures, but my favourite dress on her is the Vera Wang. Very Carrie Bradshaw.

The super star September issues are being revealed thick and fast.

Jennifer Lopez pours her sexy curves into a leopard print Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 body for Glamour’s September 2010 cover.

‘Sexy face’ has been replace by a seductive pose whilst she twists her ponytail.

Ellen Von Unwerth and the Glamour style team draw out Jennifer’s animal instinct with a series of poses and leopard print piece from Rochas, Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Louboutin.

You can read the whole interview at Glamour.com before it hits newsstands on August 10.

Here are some extracts:

On time off while having her twins: “It’s funny—I don’t feel like I’ve been anywhere, except kind of on maternity leave. It’s been great, and I definitely feel renewed vigor for my career. I didn’t [plan on taking two years off]. In my mind I first felt like, Oh, I’ll be back to work right after the babies are born. But then you don’t want to. Even now, it’s very difficult for me to leave them in the morning. It just tortures me. I’m like, It’s been hours; are they wondering where I am? Do they know that I love them so much and I’m thinking only about them?” Read more…

No one will be surprised to see Jennifer Aniston on a September cover.

I’m not exactly sure what her count is, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we are now in double figures.

The actress graces 2 covers of the Harper’s Bazaar US September 2010 issue (left is the subscribers cover).

If your first thought was Barbara Streisand is on the cover of the black and white picture you’d be half right, as Jennifer’s editorial was inspired by the iconic actress.

What I obviously love about this editorial is that Jennifer is waaaayy out of her comfort-zone.

Congrats to the Harper’s Bazaar team and photographer Mark Seliger for daring to show us a different side to Jennifer.

From the hair, to the clothes and overall styling I love everything about this editorial, because if I’d seen one picture of Jen with her flowing hair on a beach I would’ve lost it.

On the black and white cover she wears Derek Lam, but the rest of her editorial she’s playful in Giambattista Valli, dainty in Dior, sultry in Donna Karan and golden in Gianfranco Ferré.

You can read her whole interview at harpersbazaar.com.

Here are some extracts:

On what she’s learned from Barbra Streisand: “You don’t have to stop at one thing. You can do it all if you want to.” Read more…
