Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

FLR05_Cover

Eva Mendes graces the May 2014 cover of FLARE Magazine, captured by Guy Aorch wearing a Chanel dress, bolero and pearl-accented necklace. The magazine hits newsstands April 14.

The brunette bombshell plays up her domestic side in ladylike looks from Zac Posen, Rochas and Chanel in the rest of the magazine, all of which are very much in tune with her new style.

Eva opens up to the magazine about style regrets, working with Miuccia Prada and what her mum thinks of her dresses.

Her mamá regularly emails her daughter critiques of her red-carpet outfits, entitled “Mom’s Review”.

On her Mum’s critiques: “She’s usually on the money. If she doesn’t like something, I can usually see why: it didn’t photograph well or looked weird around the waist.”

On her mother’s ideas about her style: “My mother always says she wants to see me in more fitted things! She’s always saying, ‘Show off your body, it’s not always going to be like this!’”

On how she hates skinny-jeans: “I’m always in dresses, in skirt—I think they’re so easy. People are always saying, ‘I love jeans, they’re so casual and easy,’ but I think jeans aren’t easy. They’re my worst nightmare.”

On the revealing outfits she regrets: “It’s not that I’m against body-conscious clothes: I have worn them on the red carpet or out, but when I’m photographed in them, I always regret it. For me, it’s always been the easy way out. When I wear something a little more reveal- ing, I think, Oh, gosh, I should have been more creative.”

On how she hates body-baring clothes: “I don’t like when it’s just me and I’m not working. I don’t like feeling like I’m on display.”

Amanda Seyfried graces the cover of W magazine’s April 2014 issue – which was shot by Craig McDean – wearing a black-and-white Chanel swimsuit.

Lounging around in a selection of swimsuits by Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana – each, strangely, with a pair of cowboy boots – her smouldering cat-eyes and hot-fuchsia lip stand out more than her two-piece wardrobe. See the full editorial here.

The ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ actress talks about her recent vacation, kissing Megan Fox, presenting at the Oscars with Miley Cyrus, fame and her dog.
You can read more over at Wmagazine.com.

On her recent vacation: “I was at a resort, and I thought, I should be loving this—but I wasn’t getting anything done, and that terrified me. When I feel like I’m not accomplishing something, I feel like I failed the day. I guess I missed work.”

On kissing Megan Fox for Jennifer’s Body: “We kissed really well together. We have similar kissing styles! If I watch the scene, it’s actually really sexy… We got it done for the masses, and, sadly, the masses didn’t show up.”

On presenting at the Oscars with Miley Cyrus: “I have all these odd chapters. I do recall that both Miley and I were very nervous. And I also recall being backstage afterward, which was wonderful. At that point, the attention is no longer on you, and you suddenly feel like a princess. The magic of Hollywood hits me at odd, unexpected moments.”

On her fame: “It may be that I’m older, and it may be that social media is everywhere now. I don’t think I was really famous until last year—and I felt like no one paid much attention to what I was doing. That was good. But Les Mis was an international hit, and that changed things. Before, I was a little more anonymous.”

On her beloved dog Finn: “When I landed in Korea recently, there were people holding up pictures of Finn. In the past year, people just learned how to pronounce my last name correctly, but they all know everything about my dog.”

Solange Knowles Harpers Baazar

Solange Knowles is living her life out loud and in technicolour for an editorial for shot by Julia Noni for Harper’s Bazaar US.

Fashion editor Joanna Hillman tapped into the star’s love for colour in her editorial, which sees Solange wearing Chanel with a pair of Jeremy Scott by Linda Farrow sunnies that I have to own, as well as Moschino, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren.

Solange is a successful recording artist with her own label, an art director, and a creative consultant for Puma, all while becoming a fashion icon with a style all of her own.

You can call her a tastemaker, but in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar she shared how she hasn’t completely come to terms with being labelled as such, saying ”I’ve always had an annoying relationship with the term ‘tastemaker,’ but it’s been a defining part of my career for the past couple of years.”

Solange talked to the magazine about her journey in the music industry, dating losers and divorce. Here are some extracts. You can read the rest over at HarpersBazaar.com.

On her personal style: “You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts. I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colours, but I didn’t quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work. I had to stabilize our lives and stay in one place. It sounds silly, I know, but having space for my clothes made a huge difference. I was able to get organized, free myself of clutter, and develop a style that felt like me.”

On following in Beyonce’s footsteps: “My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist. They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life.”

On her love life: “Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while,” she says, adding wryly “It’s a fucked-up thing—without conflict it’s a lot harder to write interesting songs.”

Zoe Saldana For Net-A-Porter's THE EDIT

THE EDIT features actress Zoe Saldana on the cover in this season’s beautiful pieces featuring an Alexander McQueen dress and bag by Nina Ricci.

In an exclusive interview, Craig McLean talks to Saldana about life beyond her dazzling acting career and her personal life, which she keeps far from public view.

Currently filming in Paris where THE EDIT meets her, Saldana is working on a two-part mini-series remake of classic horror ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ for her new production company, which she runs with her two sisters.

As a businesswoman as well as an actress, it’s clear her new role has kept her busy: “I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym.”

Embracing her role as a wife now too, last summer Saldana briefly escaped the five-month ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ shoot (out this summer) in Surrey, England to marry her Italian husband, artist Marco Perego nearby: “I’m not a private person, but I am discreet. So it felt right.”

Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder when she was a child, her condition explains her drive, myriad expressions and her concurrent projects. Saldana isn’t fazed by it though: “I don’t care what people think”, she says cheerfully. “I wish I did, maybe I would be at a different place in my life, but I don’t care. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart, my friends’ advice, a song, a poem.”

On whether her condition affects her acting career: “I have ADD, I am a Gemini and I get bored quickly. So my next challenge is to direct, because I am getting tired of the frustration of being just a particle in the whole telling of the story. I want to be more. I want to be in there from its conception.”

On her exciting red carpet style: “I don’t care what people think. If I did, I’d be at a different place in life, but I don’t. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart or my friend’s advice. Petra Flannery, my stylist, is a paramount when it comes to my fashion radar. She pushes me to evolve.”

On her new diet: “I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself. [I don't go to the gym] because I am trying to be skinny. I just like to know how much endurance I have. But this past year I’ve let myself go. I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese, pasta, rice, beans…”
