Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Kylie Minogue graces the cover of Elle UK’s January 2013 issue sporting a platinum blonde ‘do (don’t worry, it’s just a wig) and wearing a Christopher Kane dove-grey cocktail dress featuring a triple-bow yoke with bolt accents with Jil Sander colour-block sandals.

On the subscribers’ cover, entitled ‘Kylie & Elle: A 25-year love affair’, we see Kylie looking stunning in a captivating black-and-white close-up shot.

Shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu, the singer/actress opens up about her battle with breast cancer and her thoughts on plastic surgery.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing more London-based designers, such as Simone Rocha, Antonio Berardi and Mary Katrantzou.

Elle UK’s January 2013 issue is out now. Here are some extracts from her interview.

On feeling her age: “I’m not going to lie about this. There are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold. Or I suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, ‘Who is that?’”

On considering plastic surgery: “I haven’t gone down that route yet and I don’t know whether I will but I’m not against it. We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good.”

On relating to women through her battle with breast cancer: “Women come up to me in the street and just start talking to me about what they are going through… I stand there in the street and I just hug them. I hug them because we both know what they are feeling. I feel close to every one of them and I think they do to me, it’s not about anything else but what we’ve all been through.”

Jessica Biel heads into the new year as the cover girl for Elle US, with an amazing photoshoot for their January 2013 issue.

She wears Dior on the newsstand issue and Givenchy for the subscribers cover.

It may be a concept we have seen several times before, but the actress was captured in her editorial by Thomas Whiteside alongside top designers, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Azzedine Alaïa, Christian Louboutin, Isabel Marant, the artisanal of Maison Martin Margiela, Nicola Formichetti of Mugler, Olivier Rousteing of Balmain, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino and Giambattista Valli – who created her wedding gown – dressed in pieces from the Spring 2013 collections.

So this is what she was doing in Paris earlier this year: when it was reported that she was interviewing designers, it turns out she was being shot with designers. Her Isabel Marant Spring 2013 look worn on that day was even captured in the editorial.

As a newlywed, she of course talks about her marriage, her honeymoon and her hubby, Justin Timberlake. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her honeymoon: “Honeymooning is the best thing about being a newlywed. I wish I could honeymoon forever.”

On marriage: “It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar . . . to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing.”

On Justin’s domestic sensibility: “He bakes pies. He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie . . . and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank God. Otherwise, it would be a big problem.”

On the future: “My goal now is to work with great directors. Small role, big role, medium-size role – it doesn’t matter. I just want to work with someone who’s going to push me to a scary, exciting place that I’ve never been before.”

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of Elle UK’s October issue.

Matt Irwin captures the singer wearing Fall 2012 looks by London-based designers Peter Pilotto and Alexander McQueen, mixing edgy digital prints with colourful florals for an interesting mash up, which typifies Gwen’s style.

With No Doubt’s sixth album ‘Push and Shove’ set for release on September 18, Gwen talks to the mag about finding motherhood difficult, saying that ‘being a mom is hard’, and that she finds herself being overwhelmed trying to find balance as she strives to ‘do it all’.

Be sure to pick up this issue when it hits newsstands on September 5.

Back when she was sporting purple hair, Katy Perry shot the cover for Elle’s September 2012 issue wearing a Bottega Veneta dress, which Salma Hayek wore to the ‘Prometheus’ London Premiere, plus a black-and-white Yin and Yang manicure.

The singer also wears a printed Etro dress and YSL for the Carter Smith shoot whilst dishing to Elle about everything from her career, being a role model, marriage and relationships.

The magazine hits newsstands on August 14. Head over to Elle.com to read more or check out the highlights below.

On relationships and marriage: “I obviously have a lot to say right now…I’m a woman who likes to be courted – strongly. Never say never, I guess you’d say. I’ll let love take the lead on that.”

On her career: “I love what I do, and when I don’t love what I do, I’ll make a change…I can’t be the candy queen forever.”

On being a role model: “I have no regrets…I’m not going to be everything to everyone. I can’t tell a person when it’s time for them to have sex. Or if they should have a cigarette…But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message.”

Kristen Stewart appears on the cover of Elle UK’s June 2012 issue.

The actress, who is gearing up for the release of her latest movie, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, sports a 60s inspired hairdo whilst wearing a Jil Sanders Spring 2012 knitted two piece on the cover shot by David Slijper.

In the magazine she talks about her style choices, whether she sees herself as a director someday, and when she’s the happiest – I’m guessing in jeans, a t-shirt and converse sneakers.

The issue hits newsstands on May 2. Here are some extracts from her interview.

On being a role model: “I don’t apply [being a role model] to the choices I make. I feel like a role model is not necessarily somebody you want to imitate, just someone you admire.”

On her love of acting: “It’s a physical thing. I f***ing love everything about [acting]. I love movies, I love what they do. I am just so fueled by it like nothing else.”

On her choice in clothing: “I just wear very functional clothes. When I’m in London I feel so dressed down and young and Californian. Even if I try to look nice when I go out for dinner, I just don’t have that thing. I will always wear no socks in be like, ‘F***, it’s freezing; what am I doing?’”

On whether she’d like to direct: “I want to direct movies. Sometimes I think, ‘God, I want to do that, I want to do that next.’ But then I work with someone who’s great at what they do and I think, ‘I’m not there yet.’”

On when she’s really happy: “In my car with the right friend – I like to drive and I love being in LA, it always feels like, ‘Ahhhhh.’ So I would say if the right song came on, windows down, that’s a great feeling. To just be excited to be moving, to be like, ‘Here we are.’”

On how she’d describe herself: “I don’t know. I was going to say that I really like what I do. I really love what I do. I think the most interesting part of me, literally, is what I do.”


I’m not sure what Blake Lively is currently promoting, apart from that gorgeous body and face of hers, but she has still managed to land yet another cover by gracing the March 2012 issue of ELLE US.

She looks simply sensational wearing a Victoria Beckham Spring 2012 dress on the cover which was shot by Tom Munro.

Looking through the rest of the editorial it becomes very clear why Blake was chosen for this issue as she dons many sporty looks by Isabel Marant, Michael Kors, Gucci and Alexander Wang.

In her interview she talks about not having a stylist (yes, yes, we know), the men in her life and much more.

The March issue will hit newsstands on February 14, or you can head over to Elle.com for more info.

On the men in her life: “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.”

On not having a stylist: “When I’m going to an event, I’ll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’” Read more…
