Rihanna For W Magazine February 2010

Wearing the same Gucci Spring 2010 white cut-out dress which Jennifer Lopez wore to the AMA’s, Rihanna looks gorgeous on the cover of W’s February 2010 edition.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing Michael Kors, Prada and Christian Dior.

Obviously the subject her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown comes up in the interview which she answers honestly. Plus she talks about her new album, having to mature at an early age and SNL’s comedy skit on domestic violence.

You can read the whole interview at WMagazine.com, but below are a few extracts.

On the tone of Rated R: “This was a different type of record for me. . . . It was really personal; it was from me in the most authentic way. It’s like a movie in that when I was making this album, every day I was in a different mood. Sometimes I was p*ssed off, sometimes I was miserable, and every song brings out a different story.!”

Cheryl Cole For Glamour UK February 2010

It seems that everyone (including me) is in love with Mrs Cole.

She has gone from pop star to a WAG to X Factor judge winner to everyone’s favourite fashionista.

Her wardrobe during the recent X Factor shows was near flawless, so we’re glad Glamour UK have helped with our withdrawal symptoms by putting her on their February 2010 cover.

She looks stunning Christian Dior Spring 2010 corseted dress, plus her trademark big hair – no doubt this shoot was done before her big chop.

She talks about her husband Ashley Cole – who cheated on her last year – being labeled a fashionista and her feud with Lily Allen.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her husband Ashley: “Ashley is totally the opposite of how he is perceived. People have this idea that he is flash, ignorant and disloyal – the ugliest traits a husband could have. But he’s not. He’s never rude, he’s never aggressive and will go out of his way to make other people happy. He’s shy and he’s cute, but there is no way of proving that to people.”

Rachel McAdams For Vogue January 2010

In case you didn’t already know, I have a serious girl crush on Rachel McAdams.

In my opinion she rarely puts a fashion foot wrong and she has an air of shyness about her that you just don’t see in Hollywood stars anymore.

Needless to say I was delighted to see her on the cover of this month’s Vogue where she wear’s Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010. I think the grown-up florals are such a great look on her.

Here are some extracts from her interview but you can view the whole article at Vogue.com

On working with Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls: “I just remember marveling about how much she knew as an actor, how much she understood. She did very few takes and had this naturalness to her. And beyond that, I was 26 at the time. I’d be asked, ‘Where do you go out?’ . . . I felt like I was in a different place at that time.”

Miley Cyrus For Harper’s Bazaar February 2010

“IT’S MILEY”.

If you chuckled you must watch “The Soup” on E!.

It is indeed Miley Cyrus on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s February 2010 issue, and I have to admit I love both the cover and the editorial.

Me loving what Miley’s wearing???

I know. I checked my temperature and don’t appear to be coming down with anything.

I love it because she’s not overdress, nor does she appear to be ‘partying in the USA’ wearing Daisy dukes and cowboy boots.

In the shots taken by Peter Lindbergh she’s wearing Giorgio Armani on the cover, plus Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren and my favourite is her in Burberry Prorsum. She looks grown up, yet age appropriate.

In the interview Miley shares the ups and downs of her success, talks about the much-criticized Vanity Fair photo, and why she was crying with happiness when she left LA this summer.

You can read her full interview at Harper’s Bazaar.com, but here are some extracts from her interview.

On the headline-making Vanity Fair photo of Miley wrapped in a bed sheet: “Here, my parents are thinking they’re seeing a beautiful photograph by a major photographer, and the people of America want to see something dirty in that? It doesn’t make sense to us because [my family] doesn’t look for negativity. But people don’t want to say ‘What a great performance’ or ‘What a great shot.’ No one wants to look at something like that and see the positive because it doesn’t sell a magazine.”

Jessica Szohr For Teen Vogue February 2010

Jessica Szhor is the last main member of the “Gossip Girl” cast to have a solo Teen Vogue cover.

Her February 2010 cover sees her wearing one of my favourite looks from the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 collection. I also loved the red Versus safety-pin dress below.

The self-proclaimed “jeans and tee shirt girl” is refreshingly down-to-earth in her interview.

She opens up about her modest attitude towards fame, her relationship with Ed Westwick, and her big screen debut this April in the spring-break thriller “Piranha 3-D.”

Click here for information on the February cover and behind the scenes footage from the shoot.

On her Gossip Girl co-stars and double-dating with them: “I’ve heard horror stories form other actors about egos, people who don’t get along, but we’re all friends. There are people from this job who will be in my life for a very, very long time… Sometimes we double-date with Penn [Badgley] and Blake [Lively], or Leighton [Meester] and Sebastian [Stan]. We all hang out.”

Jennifer Garner For W Magazine January 2010

Jennifer Garner graces the January 2010 edition of W Magazine wearing an orange Christian Dior Spring 2010 off-the-shoulder gown.

Unlike the drama from Demi Moore’s cover, I think it’s safe to say this is Jennifer’s body.

This is the first photo shoot for the 37 year old actress since having had her second baby Seraphina a year ago, as Jennifer wanted to sensible lose her baby weight.
She looks slim again and stylish, too.

In her editorial below Jen wears a classic Chanel suit, a fashion-forward Lanvin jumpsuit plus super-chic jewels.

In the interview for W magazine Jennifer reveals a lot about her family life and work.

On deciding to have kids with Ben: “We were together a year, and we just started breeding. We were like, ‘Let’s have a baby!’ And eight days later . . . ”

Catherine Malandrino For BMW

We’re well aware the music and fashion go together, now we are seeing a trend of designers collaborating with car manufacturers.

Luisa Beccaria collaborated with Citroen, now we have the French born, New York based fashion designer Catherine Malandrino.

The designer stars in a new BMW national advertising campaign which is featured in the December issues of Condé Nast publications W, Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, Bon Appetit, Condé Nast Traveler, The New Yorker, and if you are on Style.com as often as I’m you will have seen the adds pop up there.

The editorial tells a story of Catherine looking fabulous outside her Meatpacking District Flagship boutique, and on a weekend getaway at her country house in upstate NY.

It’s a portrait of her nomadic chic lifestyle with the new BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo as her ultimate companion.

Of course she’s dressed in her own designs from her Fall 2009 collection.

Pixie Lott For InStyle UK January 2010

InStyle UK’s cover girl for January 2010 is Pixie Lott.

Those of you outside the UK may not have heard of Pixie Lott.

She’s an 18 years old singer who’s as well known for her catchy tunes, as her love for  hot pants, messy hair, smoky eyes and lots of accessories.

We’re jealous that she always manages to wear those hot pants so well, without looking trashy.

In her editorial she wears the same Stella McCartney jumpsuit worn by Stella and Victoria Beckham, but there are no hot pants in sight.

In her interview she discusses her style, her reported crush on Russell Brand, and not having much to draw on when it comes to love songs.

On making it in the industry: “The X Factor’s great for people like Leona Lewis and Alexandra Burke because they start with a massive fan base. But I think it’s better to work your way up. If you get somewhere, you feel like you’ve really done the hard work to get there.”

Cate Blanchett For Vogue US December 2009

Cate Blanchett was shot by Annie Leibovitz for the December 2009 issue of Vogue US looking like a goddess or a beautiful Oscar statue wearing a golden strapless Donna Karan gown.

The rest of the editorial sees the actress wearing Armani Prive, Oscar de la Renta and the same Valentino dress we’ve seen on Victoria Beckham’s Elle October 2009 editorial and Rose Byrne on the red carpet at the 2009 Emmy Awards.

If you are having a touch of de ja vu looking at Cate’s editorial, that’s because it’s very very similar to the editorial which was also shot by Annie Leibovitz for the February 2009 issue of Vanity Fair.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On career choices: “I’m not very cautious or careful. It’s always been more about having a variety of experiences than any planned trajectory.”
