Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Gwen Stefani rocks an Alexis Mabille Couture floral headpiece and a Jil Sander gown on the cover of US Harper’s Bazaar September issue, which was shot by Terry Richardson.

The mag gives Gwen a mini makeover by swapping her signature red lip colour for a hot-pink hue.

In her editorial, which sees her wearing only pink and black looks, my favourite is the frothy pink Alexander McQueen gown, which has to have a red carpet moment. The singer also wears The Row, DVF, Vera Wang and Versace.

Gwen opened up about her personal life, being a working mum, her style and the secret to her envied six-pack abs.

On her style: “I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up … I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more, and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”

On staying fit: “I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous. There is no secret: you just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself! But it’s more for my brain than it is for my body. I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”

On motherhood: “It’s superfun being a mom, but it’s hard too. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done – by far.”

On fame and gossip: “That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn’t bother me. It’s like water off a duck’s back. None of that stuff matters. There’s something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay.”

Keira Knightley graces the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK wearing Chanel, of course.

The Hollywood A-lister and face of Chanel perfume ‘Mademoiselle’, was shot by Ellen Von Unwerth across an 11 page spread which sees the actress channel a bewitching look dressed in gothic inspired creations from Gucci, Lanvin, Chanel, Balenciaga and L’Wren Scott.

Keira talks to the mag about Karl Lagerfeld, coming into her own after turning 25 and her admiration for ‘Anna Karenina’ co-stars Jude Law and Aaron Johnson.

Below are some extracts from her interview, but be sure to pick up this issue to see Keira’s full editorial and interview when the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar goes on sale Thursday 2nd August, plus it is also available as digital edition.

On feeling more comfortable with life after turning 25: “I hated late teens, I hated early twenties, all of that, I think a lot of people do. Possibly I think I’m one of those people that always would have done and it didn’t really matter where I was in life. But I was totally uncomfortable in everything. And all of a sudden 25 hit, and I was like, ‘Ah, I think I’m all right’. And actually after 25 it’s been pretty good. I definitely feel like I’ve been around the block a couple of times, and that’s great.” Read more…

Rihanna looks stunning on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar US for their August 2012 cover wearing a simple Calvin Klein dress and Neil Lane bracelet.

In fact she is stunning throughout the editorial shot by Camilla Akrans.

Even when wearing uber-sexy looks by Tom Ford, Balmain, Alexander Wang, Paco Rabanne and Ralph Lauren, the singer still looks soft, serene and approachable. It’s refreshing to see this side to her.

I adore the fresh-faced makeup they opted for on this occasion. The bronze eyes and lip colour is to die for.

The singer talks to the mag about sex, music and living life in the public eye.

You can read some extracts below. Be sure to buy this issue of Harper’s Bazaar which hits newsstands on July 17:

On her body: “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”

On falling in love: “When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”

On her collaboration with Chris Brown: “The fans could have said, ‘We don’t want anything to do with it’. I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”

On being rebellious: “[I'm] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just—I don’t let people in.”

Victoria Beckham is unrecognisable on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar China for their May 2012 issue.

Sporting fire engine red hair, feathered eye shadow and heavy-looking earrings the designer showcases an avant garde look which we’ve never seen from her before.

The red hair really works for her in this editorial and the makeup is artistry at its finest.

It rare to see VB opt for a look so bold, even in an editorial, so it’s great to see her working this striking look.

Which Harper’s Bazaar cover do you prefer?

Victoria’s Harper’s Bazaar UK cover or this cover?

Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK’s May 2012 issue which also celebrates Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, marking her 60th year on the throne.

The Queen of Fashion – that’s Victoria – was shot by Camilla Akrans wearing a Prada Spring 2012 bodysuit.

These bodysuits have already appeared in many editorials, which is not surprising considering it would take someone like Rihanna, Katy Perry or Fergie to bring these pieces alive on the red carpet.

In the magazine Victoria talks about motherhood, how she feels about her body and what it’s like to go to bed with David Beckham – hopefully she goes into detail.

The May issue of Harper’s Bazaar goes on sale Monday 2nd April.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley smoulders on two covers for Harper’s Bazaar’s January 2012 ‘Body Issue’.

On the left she wears a Michael Kors swimsuit and on right she’s radiant in a shimmering Burberry dress.

Rosie sports a Betty Draper-esque faux bob for her Mad-Men-style editorial, shot by Tom Munro and styled by Catherine Kastrine, the model/actress wears Resort 2012 looks from Christian Dior, Alberta Ferretti, Emilio Pucci, Prada, Akris, Fendi, Valentino, Versace and Miu Miu.

We also see her in more swimsuits designed by Alexander Wang and Bottega Veneta. Looking at these pictures, it’s no wonder Mario Testino has dubbed her the ‘English beauty with the Brazilian body’.

In her interview with the magazine she talks about maintaining her killer figure, and what she really thinks about the gym.

Here are some extracts:

On breaking into acting: “It’s interesting coming from modelling, where women rule the industry, into one where there are so few great female parts and the competition is so much higher.” Read more…
