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 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…

‘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…
