Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Gwyneth Paltrow graces the cover of the Elle US September 2011 issue wearing the same Louis Vuitton black laser cut leather jacket we saw on Fergie recently.

The rest of her editorial which was shot by Carter Smith sees her wearing Christopher Kane and Tom Ford.

In her interview Gwynie talks about showing the world a different side of herself, sharing her personal care regimens, Beyonce’s advice for her and Gwyneth also makes a rare comment about her husband Chris Martin, divulging why they keep their marriage out of the spotlight.

The issue hits newsstands on August 16 or head to Elle.com to see more.

On showing the world a different side: “If you speak to my friends who’ve known me since I was four, they’ll say, ‘That is her.’ They always said to me, ‘You’re the dirtiest person in the world and so funny. Show the world that side of you.’ I felt guarded. I felt like if I really showed people more of me and I was still not accepted, then…Who cares. You just realize it doesn’t matter what people think of you.” Read more…

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of Elle US May 2011 issue, which focuses on women in music.

Dusan Reljin shot the beautiful singer and designer wearing Givenchy and Michael Kors.

Gwen shares that she takes much pride in her appearance, but she would never place herself in the same category as Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, as she thinks they are much sexier than her.

I totally disagree. Gwen is waaaay hotter than those two put together.

The Women in Music issue also features multiple female singers stars including Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyonce and Willow Smith.

Read more at Elle.com. The May issue hits newsstands April 12.

Here are some extracts from Gwen’s interview:

On writing hits: “I do! Why wouldn’t you want that many people listening to the songs that you wrote? There’s no way to go back after you have had it. So the intentions of even the solo records were always about trying to write those guilty-pleasure albums that just get in your head and you can’t get out. I’m not cool, I’m not into the B-sides. Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?” Read more…

For the Elle US November 2010 edition there are 3 cover stars.

Hilary Swank, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson appear in the magazine for the “Women In Hollywood” issue.

Photographed by Carter Smith, Kate looks stunning on cover wearing one of my favourite dresses from Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 collection which we’ve seen on Leighton Meester.

The magazine hits newstands on October 20, but here are some extracts from Kate’s interview.

On learning about parenting from her mom and dad: “My mom and dad had it figured out: They never worked at the same time, and they were very conscious of making anywhere we went feel like home. When you’re working, the hours are brutal, but when you’re not working, you have all the time in the world. That’s always a difficult balance.”

On the difficulty of finding good female roles: “They are — because in most male-driven vehicles, the female parts tend to be dispensable. I have faith that we can make female-driven films that are as interesting to men as they are to women.”

On filming Almost Famous: “One of my favorite experiences. One, because I love Cameron Crowe. And two, because it was just such a wonderful movie. The whole thing was overwhelming — in the best way.”

Which is your favourite cover?

I’m stuck between Hilary and Kate.

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 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 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…
