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

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.

Emma Watson For Elle UK August 2009

This is Emma Watson’s second August cover and I would bet there are many more to come she prepares to start promoting “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” which hits theaters on July 15.

On the cover – shot by Matthias Vriens McGarth – she wears a Giles strapless top with a raised GG logo. The rest of her edgy editorial shows that she is trying to move away from her good girl image. Below she wears a sexy Chanel top with rock chick Roberto pants. Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana.

The 19 year old British actress talks to Jenny Dickinson about film, fashion, and a brand new chapter – college.

On making the decision to go to college: “It’s going to sound dramatic, but I feel like it’s going to be my life over as I know it. My whole life has been about and then all of that’s going to shut down and I don’t know what that will be like. I go to university in September. I’ll be doing bits and bobs at Christmas, but September feels like my cut off point, when I’ll really stop Harry Potter.”

Winona Ryder For Elle UK July 2009

Winona Ryder graces the cover of  Elle UK’s July 2009 issue, shot by Matthias Vriens McGrath.

On the newsstand cover, she wears a nude tulle Dolce & Gabbana corset, and on the subscribers cover, she wears a simple black American Apparel top.

In the interview, Winona talks about childhood bullies, leading roles, beauty and her latest film, “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee”.

On Being Bullied: “We only shopped at the Salvation Army, and I would get these three-piece, 1970s little boy suits. I had really short hair, and the third day of seventh grade, these kids basically jumped me in the hall because they thought I was a gay boy, and they roughed me up… I think when that happened, I kind of went into a movie in my head because I couldn’t deal with what was happening. Kids would say, ‘You’re a witch, you’re creepy, you’re crazy.’ I was in the number-one movie in the country and I was still being bullied in school.”
