Victoria Beckham For Harper’s Bazaar December 2009

Before you pop out to get your sandwich from Pret A Manger, you should also pick up a copy of Harper’s Bazaar which features Victoria Beckham on the cover.

Victoria Beckham plays the noir heroine caught in sultry reverie in an exclusive fashion shoot for a special double cover December issue.

The critically acclaimed fashion designer, who has wowed the critics and top designers alike with her sexy elegant dresses, unveils an amazingly toned body and tight top knot hairstyle in a 16 page portfolio of sexy, chic photographs.

Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, Victoria wears a range of seductive yet feminine looks from an Yves Saint Laurent leather bodysuit to her own figure-hugging silk gazar dress.

In the spectacular Harper’s Bazaar cover spread, several famous designers, including Antonio Berardi, Manolo Blahnik and Roberto Cavalli, also give their expert verdicts – all positive – on Victoria’s designs, a further acknowledgment that the industry is taking her seriously as a designer.

In the interview, Victoria also reveals to Harper’s Bazaar the secrets of her remarkable success and why fashion is her true calling . . . .

On staying true to her path: “People never believed the solo singing career, and it wasn’t the real me – I was a little bit lost at the time. I don’t mind making mistakes. I just can’t live with anyone else’s mistakes. I’m a complete control freak. I’m not the easiest person to work with because I’m so passionate and being a working mum, it’s a balancing act.”

Agyness Deyn For Harper’s Bazaar US September 2009

Agyness Deyn pays tribute to the late Michael Jackson, on the subscribers cover of the September 2009 issue of US Harper’s Bazaar which was shot by Terry Richardson.

Michael Jackson’s eccentric style will live on forever which is shown in the 6 page editorial.

Deyn wears iconic MJ outfits including the dazzling socks and his iconic glove. Her poses are on point as she balances on the tips of her toes.

In her PYT shoot Deyn wears Moschino, YSL, Stella McCartney and Balmain blazer from the runway, plus MJ’s iconic red leather Thriller jacket from Fierce Costumes and a crystallised Swarovski Rag and Bone blazer.

I love this editorial. Even though Deyn is not my favourite model, I think she captures the energy and spirit of MJ in each picture.

Kate Winslet For Harper’s Bazaar US August 2009

Kate Winslet is very much a girls girl. I don’t think I have ever hear a bad word said against her. Everyone loves her, and what’s not to love. She is beautiful, down-to-earth and refreshing honest.

These traits make her the perfect cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar’s August 2009 issue.

On the newsstand cover – which I prefer to the subscriber cover below – she looks gorgeous wearing a Michael Kors white crepe one-shouldered dress. Inside the issue she talks about her reputation, drugs, her breasts and nudity. Here are some extracts:

On her breasts: “If people are noticing my boobs in a movie and saying they do what real boobs do, then that’s great. I’ll be 34 in October. I can’t keep getting away with it… people have seen enough of my bum and my boobs. I have to put them back.”

Rachel Weisz For Harper’s Bazaar August 2009

Yummy mummy Rachel Weisz has a commandingly sexy look on the cover of the August 2009 edition of Harper’s Bazaar UK.

She looks stunning wearing a black velvet Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 dress with an asymmetrical neckline and a bejeweled shoulder detail.

The rest of her editorial shot by Cliff Watts is pretty amazing too. I love the Alexander McQueen studded thigh-high boots below. You’d think Rachel is too sweet and innocent to pull something like that off, but she channels her inner diva to give us some fierce looks.

Here are some extracts from her interview with Catherine Fairweather.

On her Oscar: “It’s proudly displayed on a shelf in the bathroom. The best room of the house.”

Halle Berry For Harper’s Bazaar US May 2009

The gorgeous Halle Berry graces the cover of the May 2009 edition of Harper’s Bazaar US.

I love everything about this shoot excluding the wig.

Why did they opt for a wig?

She is perfection without the wig. I’m obsessing over the wig.

With her new fragrance in stores, Halle by Halle Berry, the love of an incredibly sexy man, Gabriel Aubry, and her baby daughter, Nahla brightening up her world. Life couldn’t be happier for Halle.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On how her body’s changed since having Nahla: “Having a baby takes so much from you. It’s the most glorious thing you’ll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious! So now I’m having to exercise, eat a little bit differently, take a lot more vitamins.”

What she thinks of actresses who say they don’t work at staying slim: “God bless them if they’re telling the truth. It’s questionable if they are. I always had to diet. I’m diabetic, so it’s a lifestyle for me anyway just to stay healthy and not end up in the hospital.”

On what works for her fashionwise: “I’m not the girl for superhigh fashion because I don’t have the right body. When I want to get dressed up, I’m a Roberto Cavalli girl. Also, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Calvin Klein …”

On whose style she like’s: “Eva Mendes. She’s beautiful, and she’s sexy and hot, and I love her.”

Sarah Jessica Parker For Harper’s Bazaar US March 2009


Everyone’s favourite native New Yorker, Sarah Jessica Parker, graces the March 2009 cover of Harper’s Bazaar US. On the cover she is wearing a stunning white Versace gown, which I really would have loved to have seen full-length in the editorial.

In the magazine SJP talks about the launch of her new fragrance, her public persona and of course, fashion.

On the acronym, SJP: “I just don’t have any real sense of my public persona. I don’t know what people think of me, if they think of me at all.”

On New Yorks Sex and the City bus tour: “Ah, yes, I run into it. There are times when it’s totally terrific, and there are times when I’m like, Oh, God, I’d better run in the other direction. Especially when I’m with my son.”

On fashion: “I don’t have the Carrie Bradshaw passion and devotion to it, but I would much prefer that life would allow for a beautiful shoe all day long. To stand in Mr. de la Renta’s atelier and have him build a dress on you, that is amazing.”

On her Balmain dress: “That dress was really good. I love what [designer Christophe Decarnin] is doing. It’s kind of ’80s, but it’s superfitted and tailored. I can’t wear all that stuff, I’m too old, but with the jacket shoulder he did…he’s kind of the male version of L’Wren Scott right now.”

On her Alexander McQueen smoke print dress: “McQueen is incredible. I actually had to cut myself out of that dress that night. My husband was out of town, so I was alone when I got home, and I couldn’t unzip it. So…[wincing]…I got out the scissors.”

Personally I would have slept in the dress until he came back home. I couldn’t take scissors to any garment like that. *shudders*

Jennifer Connelly For Harper’s Bazaar UK February 2009


American Beauty Jennifer Connelly, appears on the February 2009 edition of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar.

In the magazine she talks about her life with British actor husband Paul Bettany, as well as her role in the upcoming romantic comedy He’s Just Not That Into You. In this movie she stars alongside Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johannson, Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore.

A lot of you have questioned Jennifer weight. Her husband finally addressed the weight loss rumours recently. He said, “I will tell you… My wife just lost her father.”

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her husband Paul Bettany: “One of my first memories of Paul was him hanging out with Kai in my trailer one day, during filming. They were playing, and they had all the cushions out and they’d made some sort of obstacle course. And I remember, at that age, Kai was very attached to me and came with me everywhere, so at a certain point, I said, ‘I’m going to go next-door to the make-up trailer. Do you wanna come?’ And he said, ‘No, I’m going to stay here.’ The two of them just hit it off immediately.”

On Jennifer Aniston:
“I thought she was such a sweetheart. I’ve always thought she was very talented and lovely, warm, generous and after the film I thought, ‘Ooh I want to be her friend. I want to hang out with her.'”
