FLR02_Cover

Olivia Palermo shares the love and lust-themed edition of Flare’s February 2015 issue with gorgeous hubby, model Johannes Huebl, for the which hits newsstands on Monday, January 13.

The socialite talks to the mag about everything from her take on social media at fashion shows to her long-term goal of owning a skiwear brand.

Perhaps styling is on the cards in Olivia’s future because when asked about head-to-runway looks, “How boring!” was her response.

This comes as no surprise considering Olivia is known for her artful signature mixing of high and low items and her keen eye for accessorizing.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her friendship MO: “I’ve always been someone that enjoys being around my elders more than people my own age.”

On her fashion philosophy: “You can always see it’s my sense of style at the end of the day.”

On her famous custom-made Carolina Herrera wedding ensemble: “I’m very much a fashion person. It was like going to any other market appointment and finding something I liked.”

On her stint as a reality TV villain on ‘The City': “It was a learning experience that I got out of the way early.”

On the learning experience she got out of ‘The City': “Once the cameras were out and I could go home, I decided to stay and sit in on global marketing meetings and really build my education. I asked if I could join out of curiosity and being young and wanting to learn.”

On why she started her website, OliviaPalermo.com: “The industry has changed so much in the last 10 years, especially with the move to online. Between online evolving and e-commerce growing, it was the perfect time to start my website.”

On how she gets ahead in business: “Success is never missing a day of work.”

On her #1 pet peeve – people snapping photos front-row: “You’re not focusing in the same way if you weren’t snapping away. Designers have worked too hard for you to take 25 pictures. Beautiful ones will be up on Style.com anyway!”

On her love of new design talent: “We really try to give young designers a platform on OliviaPalermo.com, highlighting their work and showing our support.”

On her future plans for Olivia Palermo world domination: “We’re fortunate to get a fair amount of [collaboration] requests. We will continue with that, but at some point it’s important to have everything under our own brand. There’s a long-term plan to it all, but everything comes in stages.”

Keira Knightley for The EDIT

unnamed

Keira Knightley talks about Hollywood’s double standards, leaving fairytales behind, and embracing the aging process in The EDIT, Net-A-Porter’s weekly fashion glossy.

In her editorial you see the ‘Laggies’ actress wearing shop-right-now looks from Valentino – naturally – Dolce & Gabbana, Delpozo, Erdem and Alexander McQueen.

Here are some extracts from her interview. You can read the full interview over at The EDIT.

On advocating for gender equality in Hollywood: “The people who make movies, whether it’s directors or producers, or money people, look for things that they can identify with and if they’re all predominantly middle-aged white men, then what you see are things that middle-aged white men can identify with. And you don’t get anything for anybody else.”

On given up on fairytales because women do not need men to come to their rescue: “A friend of mine just had a daughter. It’s a political thing, having a baby girl, in a way that it isn’t for a boy. You think, ‘Oh isn’t this fairy-tale lovely?’ Then suddenly you worry, ‘What am I planting with that? I don’t want her to be waiting around for a man to fix her problems.’ Maybe it’s a bit silly, but because equality is going so hugely the other way, I think it probably does take being silly to try and swing it back around.”

With regards to the future, Keira is ready to take anything that comes with her trademark poise. Unlike her childlike character who struggles with getting older in the upcoming film ‘Laggies’, Keira is embracing it, even if she is not quite sure what “grown-up” is meant to feel like. While Keira admits to not having all of the answers, she is looking forward to trying to find them.

FLR09_Cover

Chloe Grace Moretz graces the September 2014 issue of Canadian magazine Flare – which is set to hit newsstands on August 11th and was shot by Nino Muñoz – wearing a Gucci Fall 2014 leather dress with a crystal-accented bib.

The rest of her editorial sees the blonde starlet wearing more fall fashions from the likes of Gucci, Paco Rabanne and Louis Vuitton.

Seeming very mature for her tender 17 years, the actress shares her views on dating, her fashion credo, how she chooses her projects and her ambitious attitude.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her dating fears: “It’s a tough age to fall in love: people change so quickly… I don’t want to have to feel like I have to watch my step, ’cause I’m 17 and I shouldn’t have to… [To my friends] I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re wasting away your entire high-school years, and now you’re going to waste away your college years. You’re going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you’re going to get married… and then you’re dead! So you lived your life in a relationship!’ That’s not my style.”

On how the paparazzi never discover who she’s actually dating: “When you’re with someone who’s just your friend, then they take photos, but when you’re out with your boyfriend, they never find out. It’s like, ‘You guys are so dumb; you’re missing your opportunity!’”

On her fashion credo: “Just put me in whatever is fun and interesting, things that I won’t be able to wear when I’m 30.”

On the judgmental nature of the fashion world: “People say don’t judge a book by its cover, but if someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person. If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude… You can be whoever you want through what you wear.”

On how she chooses her projects: “Only do a movie if you’d do it for free.”

On her ambitious attitude: “I’m very driven in what I do. I’m good in my business, I can talk that all day long. It’s the same when I’m acting. There’s no barriers.”

Having quit Hollywood back in 2009 to focus on her family, Katherine Heigl is still landing covers: namely, the Marie Claire UK August 2014 issue.

The rom-com queen looks stunning on the cover wearing a lace-accented Christian Dior Fall 2014 electric-blue dress which really pops.

In her interview she gives us an insight into why she quit Hollywood, taking on too many rom-coms and the next chapter in her life.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On feeling betrayed by her career: “The thing that was my best friend for a long time [my career] suddenly turned on me and I didn’t expect it. I was taken by surprise and angry at it for betraying me. I had a moment where, I don’t know, I was thinking, ‘Maybe open a knitting store, get my money out of retirement accounts and live off that, live off the land.’ I had my moment where it all seemed so complicated and all I wanted to do was simplify.”

On making too many rom coms: “I had an amazing time. I love romantic comedies. But maybe I hit it a little too hard. I couldn’t say no. I stopped challenging myself. It became a bit by rote and, as a creative person, that can wear you down.”

On her next phase: “There’s a part of me that’s a Hollywood animal as well. I can’t wait to get into the writer’s room and see how we do this. I feel like I’m finally rolling into the next phase of my adulthood.”

Victoria Beckham graces not one, but two covers for the August 2014 issue of Vogue UK, which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier in the English countryside.

Opting for a rustic look, the designer wears Prada and Chanel outfits.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

Having turned 40 this year and with the first flagship store opening soon, the designer has much to celebrate.

On turning 40: “I looked at it [turning 40] and said to myself, I have four incredible children, an incredible husband, a business that’s doing very well. I’ve worked hard and achieved a lot. I don’t think I could have achieved much more.”

On the support from her husband: “I couldn’t be where I am without David. He gives me the security and encouragement to do what I do. I do the same for him.”

On not having any regrets: “Well I wouldn’t do anything differently. I’ve always worked hard and had a lot of fun, so there’s nothing I would change.”

Victoria’s Vogue UK August 2014 issue hits newsstands on Monday, July 7.
