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.

Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James for Harper’s Bazaar UK August 2014

There are two covers for the August 2014 edition of Harper’s Bazaar UK: one featuring Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James, and one of just Michelle on her own.

All the ladies are wearing looks from Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, with Michelle’s the most familiar as we’ve already seen this beauty on Cate Blanchett.

With ‘Downton Abbey’ returning for Season 6 in the fall on ITV, Harper’s Bazaar caught up with the ladies.

Michelle Dockery on how she’s ‘grown with the role’: ‘Lady Mary always seemed sure of herself, but “it was a brashness that came from insecurity, whereas now it’s different, she’s very confident in her own skin, and I guess [that's] the parallel, really, with my own life; I feel like I’ve reached a point now where I’m much more content and confident”.’

Laura Carmichael on when a French journalist who asked her why the show is such a hit; what’s the secret to its triumph: ‘Instead of answering, I turned the tables and asked him what he thought. “Because it is full of women”, he said, and I was like, “God, you’re so right!”‘

Lily James on the daily education on acting and being an actor on set: ‘I’m learning a lot about how to be one of the “good” actors. You’d hope that it’s natural to be a good person, and kind, but I’m learning how to deal with long, sometimes boring days.’

To see the full photo shoot, which includes the rest of the female cast, in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, pick up a copy when the mag hits newsstands tomorrow, 4 July.

Miley Cyrus For Elle’s ‘Women In Music’ May 2014 Issue

Miley-Cyrus-ELLE-May-2014

Usually Elle releases multiple covers for the annual ‘Women In Music’ issue, but so far there is only one cover star and that is Miley Cyrus. Not surprising considering she has made the biggest noise (not necessarily via her music) this past 12 months.

The singer is rocking a Marc Jacobs fresh off the runway Fall 2014 metallic sequin wave-print tunic and flares, which is not surprising considering she is the face of Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 ad campaign.

Her classic blonde pixie cut and fresh face complete this beautiful look.

No word on what she said in her interview just yet; no doubt there will be something in there about her haterz, her music evolving, and how she doesn’t care what we think about her, etc etc.

Miley is currently on her ‘Bangerz World Tour’, which heads to Europe in May.
