Sarah Jesscia Parker for Harper's Bazaar US September 2013 (2)

Sarah Jessica Parker donned a gold Marc Jacobs sequin dress for the Terry-Richardson-shot cover for Harper’s Bazaar US’s September 2013 issue.

As you would expect, the editorial is jam-packed with high-fashion designs from Gucci (currently those feather-festooned Fall 2013 gowns have graced most of the September issue editorials), Oscar de la Renta and Chanel.

In her interview, SJP talks about her husband, Matthew Broderick, collaborating with Halston, and her new HBO show, ‘Into the Fire’.

On her husband, Matthew Broderick: “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”

On working With Halston: “We’ve all worked with complicated people, and I always think that I can disarm them. I love collaborating. I’m a great listener and learner, and I don’t think I know more than they do. I’m transparent.”

On her new HBO show, ‘Into the Fire': “It’s about a woman, a beloved talk-show host out of Minneapolis, whose husband is a cook. He sort of put his career on hold while she had this big success, and ultimately they move to New York to give his career a chance. But they’re floundering. He’s a hothead and he can’t really keep a job. Deeply lovable.”

On her image: “I don’t think I’ve ever spent 10 minutes calculating my image. I can’t even recall a conversation.”

Carey Mulligan for Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2013

Carey Mulligan - June Cover - Harper's Bazaar

We are going to be seeing a lot of Carey Mulligan this month, with her eagerly anticipated movie ‘The Great Gatsby’ due for release.

Gracing her second major title, the British actress is the June 2013 cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar UK, which hits newsstands today.

Her fresh springtime shoot sees her, not surprisingly, wearing Prada on the cover, paired with her husband’s Hunter wellies, with an additional 10 pages of glorious summery looks by Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Erdem.

Carey talks to the mag about her drive, which has seen the Londoner progress from low-budget British films to a lavish Hollywood production of The Great Gatsby. She also talks about working with Leonardo DiCaprio and her marriage to Marcus Mumford from Mumford and Sons, plus she explains how she keeps her feet on the ground.

Here are some extracts from her interview. The Full interview appears in the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on sale Wednesday 1 May 2013. Also available as a digital edition.

On playing Daisy in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’: “Daisy was difficult to work out, but so fun to play… Baz also gave me about seven biographies of Zelda [Fitzgerald] and a stack of love letters from Ginevra [King]. You can so easily see where Fitzgerald has taken Daisy from. Just the way Zelda and Ginevra wrote – there were lines we stole for the script.”

On Michael Schumacher vs Leonardo DiCaprio: “Well, he [Leonardo DiCaprio] wasn’t my pin-up, but he was for a lot of my girlfriends. Michael Schumacher [was my pin-up]. I used to watch Formula 1 with my dad when I was little. When I did the audition [for the role of Daisy in ‘The Great Gatsby’] with Leo in New York I walked away grinning. Just the idea that if I never got any further, I had just spent an hour and a half acting with Leonardo DiCaprio.”

On why she chose to marry in a Prada wedding dress: “I have worn a lot of Prada and always loved their clothes. I always felt very comfortable. They were the first designer house that ever lent me anything; I wore Prada to the Oscars. The people who work there are so lovely and really just non-scary fashion people.”

Rachel Weisz is the cover girl for the March 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK dressed in a Gucci Spring 2013 raspberry 60s-inspired frock with bell sleeves and a cinched belted waist.

The actress looks radiant in her eight-page feature, shot by David Slijper, wearing Ralph Lauren, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and Fendi.

Having played Evanora, the Wicked Witch of the East in ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’, Rachel talks exclusively to Harper’s Bazaar about her penchant for playing darker film roles. She also discusses family life, juggling work and how much she loves playing a bad girl.

The full interview appears in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK on sale Tuesday 5th February. Also available as a digital edition. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On playing Evanora, the Wicked Witch of the East: “Because Evanora revels in her badness, she revels in Machiavellian-ness. I guess being bad is a lot of fun. I just watched ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?’ for the very first time in my life last week. It blew my mind. It’s one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever seen, it’s psychological horror isn’t it? Terrifying. I love Bette Davis.”

On unleashing herself in the film realm: “That’s what’s so great about acting, you’re not really responsible. I mean, I’m polite to everyone on set and I’m not a struggle to work with, but in terms of how you get to treat people, it’s carte blanche, because it’s fiction – no one’s really going to get hurt. And it’s a very joyful place to let go.”

Jennifer Lopez for Harper’s Bazaar US February 2013

Jennifer Lopez Harpers

Jennifer Lopez appears on two covers for the Harper’s Bazaar US February 2013 issue.

On the main cover the golden girl smoulders wearing a chainmail Paco Rabanne dress, while on the subscribers’ cover she strikes a fierce pose in a silver embellished Fendi dress (first worn by Anna Dello Russo) and Tom Ford bondage over-the-knee boots (first worn by Anne Hathaway).

Shot by Katjia Rawles, the singer also stuns in the same gold fringe Versace dress we’ve seen on Celine Dion, a white version of the Tom Ford dress we have already seen on Naomi Watts, and a yellow Balmain frock.

The busy mom of 4-year-old twins Max and Emme Anthony, who recent wrapped her ‘Dance Again’ world tour, will be back on the big screen in her latest movie, ‘Parker’, which will see her back on the red carpet again.

JLo speaks candidly about her lifestyle, her multifaceted career, and she also talks about her iconic Versace Grammy gown.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her career: “I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing. It makes me a better parent, a better person.”

On her beautiful life: “I like the whole idea of traveling, of looking good, and doing it well. I make it as simple and as beautiful as I can because my life is kind of big. So I pack my luggage, or dress myself, or comb my kids’ hair, pick up their clothes – that makes our life beautiful, you know? There’s something very elegant in that.”

On her famous Versace Grammy Awards gown: “I have that at home. The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done. She sent me a picture. She was like, ‘You like this dress?’ Um, yeah, but I don’t know if I like it out in the house.”
