Rosie Huntington-Whiteley For Harper’s Bazaar UK January 2012

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…

Paula Patton For Harper’s Bazaar Arabia December 2011

‘Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol’ star Paula Patton looks breath-taking on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia which was shot by John Russo and styled by Sally Matthews wearing a Mauzan abaya dress over a gold sequined Cavalli mini dress.

Where was Sally when Paula needed her for the MI4 promo tour?

The actress dons Yves Saint Laurent and Jason Wu for the rest of her editorial.

Here are some extract from her interview:

On her favourite designers: My favorite designers right now are probably Dolce & Gabbana first and foremost, I love the femininity of their clothes. They’ll go a bit retro but give you enough modern elements that make it new and free. I’m a big fan of Lanvin, and for evening gowns, Carolina Herrera and I love McQueen.

On how she keeps her famous physique intact: “Sometimes I do yoga, sometimes it’s kickboxing, sometimes it’s weight training, sometimes it’s pilates. Basically still trying to keep the muscles there, so that when the next role comes it won’t feel quite as difficult. I don’t want to have to go through that first month again.Read More…

Beyonce Knowles for Harper’s Bazaar US November 2011

Beyonce Knowles graces the cover of the US Harper’s Bazaar November 2011 issue.

For the newsstand cover she’s glowing wearing a gold Reed Krakoff dress.

She continues to whip her hair for the subscribers cover wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo fringe jacket and Norma Kamali swimsuit.

In the issue which hits newsstands on October 25, the mum-to-be talks about where she is at in life, motherhood, and maternity style.

Below are some extracts from Bey’s interview, or you can read more over at HarpersBazaar.com.

On where she is at in life: “I am finally at the stage in my life where I am not so concerned with other people’s opinions about my life decisions. It is so liberating to really know what I want, what truly makes me happy, what I will not tolerate. I have learned that it is no one else’s job to take care of me but me.”

On motherhood: “It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother. Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.”

On maternity style: “All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman. It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant. Flowy fabrics are always flattering, but I still rock my stilettos.”

Alexa Chung For Harper’s Bazaar UK October 2011

Alexa Chung channels the Swinging Sixties in a retro shoot for the October 2011 Harper’s Bazaar UK issue.

The DJ, muse, designer and presenter was photographed in and around David Hockney’s Notting Hill flat by Ellen Von Unwerth.

Her rebooted sixties photoshoot included retro-inspired designs from Chloe, Burberry, Prada and Stella McCartney.

In her interview Chung confesses to being in love with all things Sixties and has even dedicated a wall in her Columbia Road flat as a shire to her multiple sixties muses (such as Astrid Kirchherr, Marianne Faithfull, Jane Birkin, Jean Shrimpton) covered with cut-and-paste effigies, including paparazzi shots of those halcyon days.

The Harper’s Bazaar October British issue is on sale now. Here are some extracts from Alexa’s interview:

On why the Sixties suit her body type: “My ex-boyfriend [photographer David Titlow] showed me Antonioni’s 1966 film Blow-Up in my late teens. I remember seeing Jane Birkin. And I couldn’t believe it. She even made just wearing a pair of tights look sexy. . . I think the Sixties vibe suits my body type, which is skinny legs and a boyish frame.”Read More…

For the very first red carpet I did at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival, they dressed me up in their very current season collection. It’s a massive brand.”Read More…
