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.”

Jennifer Aniston For Elle UK April 2009

Jennifer Aniston graces the cover of April 2009 edition of Elle UK.

The cover star looks relaxed wearing a Gucci vest and shorts, with her trademark slightly wavy hairstyle.

She has been traveling in Europe for the past week, promoting her hit movie Marley & Me co-star Owen Wilson, and she has been giving us touches of colour on the red carpet.

I have actually started to look forward to what she is going to wear next. The anticipation has finally made her interesting to watch, glow and make us forget about linking her with Brangelina.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her divorce: “No matter what I say, things will always be taken out of context and misinterpreted, will always be turned around to make it seem as though I won’t let something go, or that I just keep talking about it over and over. I don’t owe anybody anything. I don’t owe anybody my side of the story. There are no sides! There is no bad guy and there is no good guy. There are no villains and there is no heroine in this story. It’s just not the case.”

On her diet: “I’m a realist. I know that if I eat nothing but burgers and chips, I’m not going to be hired for the parts I normally would. That might be fine one day, but not right now.”

On being happy: “I remind myself every day that I am lucky. Look what’s out there. Look what people are really living through. There’s no comparison. I am happy.

On movie roles: “I get offered funny, quirky, pretty roles. I’d love to do an action movie. James Bond! Glamour! Daniel Craig! Sh*t-loads of fun!”

Gwyneth Paltrow For Elle UK March 2009

Gwyneth Paltrow appears in the March 2009 edition of Elle UK wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, which consisted of a black satin jacket with voluminous sleeves and black and white polka dot shorts.

Her her very candid interview, she talked a little about her marriage.

On never appearing in public with her husband: “It doesn’t behoove us to be a public couple . . . He certainly doesn’t want to be that. We’ve never ever walked down a red carpet together, we never will. If people think that that means we’re not together, then – ha ha ha! – so be it.”

On her goody two-shoes image: “I’m probably less square than people think. I never get drunk to the point of throwing up. But I get very talkative.”

On a blogger accusing her of looking like prostitute wearing a white strapless Stella McCartney dress: “People don’t realise, sometimes you wear a dress because your friend made it.”

On her style transformation: “I just got out of sweatpants, out of mummy mode. I love fashion , but when you’re breastfeeding and you’re a stone-and-a-half overweight, it’s demoralising to try to wear good clothes.”

On what prompted her to chop her famous waist length hair last year: “My hairstylist, an old friend, was brushing my hair and I was like, ‘F*ck this hair! Cut my hair.”

You will notice that Gwyneth wore the white Balmain tuxedo jacket below, to the Entertainment Industry Foundation Gala this week.


Kate Winslet For Elle UK February 2009

I must admit when I first saw the February 2009 edition of Elle UK, I had to do a double take, because I thought it was Kate Moss, but it is actually British actress Kate Winslet who graces the cover.

Kate’s latest film is Revolutionary Road, for which she has received a Golden Globe nomination, despite this Kate is very down-to-earth and considers herself pretty average. She even confesses to having cellulite.

On her exercise regime: “I don’t go to the gym because I don’t have time but I do Pilates work out DVDs for 20 minutes or more everyday at home.”

On watching herself on screen: “The thought of me sitting ina room watching myself in Titanic is so funny because that is so not me. I’ve seen it once just after it was made and I’ve never watched it again. I couldn’t. I hate watching myself.

On her and Leonardo DiCaprio: “Leo’s friendship is a major thing in my life. It’s a big relationship. I’ve known him almost twice as long as I’ve know Sam [her husband], but he’s never been a boyfriend, which makes it completely uncomplicated and very special. We met when we were very young and did a this incredible film [Titanic], which changed both our lives, but the best thing to ocme out of it was this friendship. We have grown up together.”

On her sex scenes with DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road, which her husband Sam Mendes directed: “Neither Sam nor Leo seemed the slightest bit bothered. I was like ‘Is it just me who feels a bit werid about this? You know. My friend. My husband.’ But it was just me.”

Beyonce Knowles For Elle US January 2009

Beyonce Knowles had a lot of covers during 2008 and it looks like it will not stop in 2009, as she graces the cover of Elle US January 2009.

The singer/actress looks slightly over-airbrushed on the cover, wearing a purple Emporio Armani one-shoulder dress with a Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 metallic sash tied to the waist.

On her relationship with Jay-Z: “It’s a power struggle. But if I didn’t respect someone and they didn’t have that strength, then I would be bored. I wouldn’t be attracted to them.”

On her life: “There are a lot of things I never did, because I believe in watching those true Hollywood stories and I see how easy it is to lose track of your life. Think about Marilyn Monroe.”

On having a baby: “No way! I’m terrified of delivering a child because I saw my nephew being born. That traumatized me. I’m only 27. I’ve got time.”

On being affected by playing Etta James: “My mom had to leave the set. I don’t normally curse. Maybe twice a year. I have to be really livid. Somebody saying things or scheduling something where I’m not in control. It was freeing, but it was also the most emotionally draining time of my life. Every day I would come home; my eyes would be completely swollen.”

Tina on Sasha Fierce: “Her cousin Angie gave her that name. We’d tease Beyonce about having a split personality. Me and Angie and Ty, her stylist, would work with her doing a quick change when she’d come off the stage between sets. Beyone would start screaming, “What’s wrong with you? Where’s my shoe?” Uh oh, we’d say, “Sasha is here.” I’m like, This is some crazy person who’s doing this quick change. She’s another person up there. We don’t take it personally. Sasha is her bragging side I don’t know whether to say it, but her hip-hop side.”
