Rihanna For Elle US July 2010

Rihanna graces the Elle US July 2010 cover wearing a purple and gold sequin Balmain Fall 2010 mini dress when her hair was black an gold, not the current red top she’s currently sporting.

The rest of her editorial shot by Tom Munro sees her wearing animal print Pre-Fall looks from Lanvin and Roberto Cavalli.

In her interview she talks about her favourite designers, her new boyfriend and turning her dream of pop stardom into reality.

Here are some extracts.

On favourite her designers: “It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”Read More…

Kristen Stewart For Elle US June 2010

Kristen Stewart cheeky sports a smirk on the Elle US June 2010 cover.

The “Twilight” actress looks very comfortable on the cover wearing Emporio Armani blouse and Tommy Hilfiger paper bag-waist shorts.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing a Dolce & Gabbana leopard print dress and from the outtakes I can see her wearing a black Versus Fall 2010 dress.

I think the edgy dresses from this collection would be a great brand fit for her.

In her interview Kristen talks about her cult status and stalker fan problems which sound quite scary.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On the madness that has become her life: “It’s insane! Once somebody finds out, you have to get the hell out of wherever you are. People freak out. And the photographers, they’re vicious. They’re mean. They’re like thugs. I don’t event want to drive around by myself anymore. It’s f**king dangerous.”Read More…

Demi Moore For Elle UK May 2010

Demi Moore graces the cover of Elle Uk’s May 2010 issue.

The twitter addict who loves Brian Atwood black pumps and LBDs is seen on the cover wearing a Dolce & Gabbana corset over black lingerie.

The rest of her editorial shot by David Slijper, sees her wearing Christian Dior and Burberry Prorsum.

In her interview she talks about how she finally has the body of her dreams at 47, the bravery involved in her pregnant Vanity Fair cover and the possibility of having kids with Ashton Kutcher.

Here are some extracts from her interview. The full interview appears in the May issue of Elle magazine which is out now.

On her body obsession: “I had an extreme obsession with my body. I made it a measure of my own value. I tried to dominate it, which I did, and I changed it multiple times over. But it never lasted and ultimately it didn’t bring me anything but temporary happiness. Does being thin resolve anything? No. The irony is that when I abandoned that desire to dominate my body, it actually became the body that I always wanted. But it only happened when I stopped trying to control it. At the end of the day, this kind of obsession is pointless and meaningless.”Read More…

Jennifer Lopez For Elle US February 2010

Jennifer Lopez showed off her stunning figure on the cover of February’s Elle Magazine wearing a rather risqué cut out Gucci dress, sans bra!

Throughout the shoot, which was photographed by Tom Munro, she also wears pieces from Alexander Wang, Moschino and Rag & Bone.

She talks openly during her interview about getting older, being betrayed and her rom com movies.

Here are some extracts from the interview but you can read more of the article at Elle.com

On competing with twenty-something pop idols: “This is what I do—what, because I have kids and a husband now I’m not supposed to be me? I’m a more heightened me if anything. Hyper J.Lo. Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn’t mean material things; it means to explore more, to think more. Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die.”

Rihanna For Glamour US December 2009

It couldn’t have been easy for Rihanna to live her last few months in the spotlight, but it appears that she is stronger, happier and determined to give out a positive message to her young fans looking up to her.

The singer appears on the December 2009 issue of Glamour US magazine looking fabulous wearing a Balmain leopard print sequin mini.

Next Monday the magazine will honor Rihanna at the annual “Glamour Woman of the Year” gala awards ceremony. I’m sure, like me, you are anticipating what she will wear on the red carpet.

Rihanna joins 11 other inspiring Women of the Year winners who are all featured in the magazine, which goes on sale November 10.

Here are some extracts from her interview with Laurie Sandell.

On the ordeal with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown: “I went to sleep as Rihanna and woke up as Britney Spears. That was the level of media chaos that happened the next day.”

On her message to young women: “My story was broadcast all over the world for people to see, and they have followed every step of my recovery. The
positive thing that has come out of my situation is that people can learn from that. I want to give as much insight as I can to young women, because I
feel like I represent a voice that really isn’t heard. Now I can help speak for those women.”

On her personal growth over the past year: “I am stronger, wiser and more aware. You don’t realize how much your decisions affect people you don’t
even know, like fans.”

On her new album: “I’ve put everything I’ve wanted to say for the past eight months into my music. [My new album] is super fearless-which is exactly how I feel right now. I am in a really good place.”

Lily Allen For Elle UK October 2009

Lily Allen graces the cover of Elle UK’s October 2009 issue, which has been dubbed “The London Issue”.

With the “London” theme in mind Lily was dressed in amazing clothes all by British designers including Louise Goldin, Giles, Preen and Burberry. All of which had been specifically made for her.

In Rankin’s shoot she wears both a black and blonde wig. The hairstylist on the shoot said that they were going for a Debbie Harry kinda vibe, but I see Courtney Love.

On being famous: “I get quite shy and embarrassed, actually. Yes, I think I am [shy], actually. I get embarrassed when people come up and ask for autographs. I think people expect you to have a certain sense of decorum, but I almost find it like being a nursery teacher, having to be nice to people all the time. I haven’t got a problem with that, but I think people expect you to know how to deal with s**t.

Zhang Ziyi For Elle China August 2009

Actress Zhang Ziyi graces the cover of Elle China’s August 2009 edition wearing a magenta Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 mini dress – Madonna wears this same dress in the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 ad campaign.

In the magazine Zhang opens up about her desire for a family life but admitted to a fear of marriage.

That fear may be the reason why her marriage to Israeli billionaire Vivi Nevo has been postponed.

The two got engaged last February and were said to have been planning to get married in 2009 in a fancy wedding on a beautiful island off the Italian coast.
