Cover Wars: Emma Watson for Vogue UK & Marie Claire US

We don’t see Emma Watson for a while then she comes back with a bang on two covers for December 2010.

Mario Testino shot her Vogue UK cover whilst Tesh shot her Marie Claire US cover.

She wears white on both covers and it even looks like she’s wearing the same feathered skirt.

The make-up is also very similar, but her hair is slicked back on the Vogue cover.

I find myself naturally focusing on the Vogue UK cover. This is because both her smile and pose feel more natural.

Blake Lively For Marie Claire UK October 2010

Blake Lively dons a Chanel jumpsuit on the October 2010 cover of Marie Claire UK.

The gorgeous ‘Gossip Girl’ actress features in an amazing editorial shot by Guy Aroch wearing Victoria Beckham, Antonio Berardi and Giorgio Armani.

In her interview she tells us why she doesn’t have a stylist, why she branching out career-wise and she also tells us why she never googles herself.

This issue hit newsstands this morning.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her style: “I’ve always loved fashion. That’s why I don’t use a stylist. Number one, it’s such an expression of self.”Read More…

Mary-Kate Olsen For Marie Claire US September 2010

Mary-Kate Olsen appears on 3 covers for the Marie Claire US September 2010 issue.

I’m not a fan of multiple covers, because the cover I want is never available in my newsagent.

My favourite is the Pucci cover. Mostly because of the stunning dress, but also because she’s teasing us with a rare smile.

On the other covers which – were shot by Tesh MK wears a military Burberry Prorsum coat and a sequined Gucci dress with feathered sleeves.

The young designer talks to Marie Claire about talks about her fast-paced lifestyle, running a fashion house in New York City, The Row, her passion for clothing, losing her friend Heath Ledger and how she feels about having been a child actor.

On loving her fashion lines: “It’s kind of like a mask to hide behind.”Read More…

Vanessa Paradis For Marie Claire UK August 2010

Many of you are bored of some stars association with one brand.

Vanessa Paradis and Chanel is one union I will never grow tired of. They are made for each other.

The French actress/singer wears Chanel on yet another cover. This time for Marie Claire’s August 2010 UK edition.

You may recognise her Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress since Carey Mulligan wore it on the red carpet to the BAFTAs Nominees Party earlier this year.

Vanessa talks about Johnny Depp, how they have managed to stay together for over 10 years and how the fact being apart helps their relationship, she also goes on to speak about their kids and her and Johnny Depp working together.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On how she keeps the passion alive when she’s been with the same man [Johnny Depp] for 12 years: “First of all, you have to be lucky enough to find the right person. Next, the fact that we’re not together every day plays a big part in keeping our relationship stable. And then we also have a lot of respect and admiration for each other. We understand that, if we want our relationship to continue, we must give each other space, allow each other to go off on our own, and trust each other.”Read More…

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis & Kim Cattrall For Marie Claire US June 2010

Like last year, the four stars of “Sex And The City” have their own cover for Marie Claire US June 2010 issue.

SJP wears a gold Balmain dress on the cover which is surprising considering it’s almost exactly the same dress Demi Moore on her controversial W magazine cover a few months ago.

Cynthia and Kristin wear Dior, whilst Kim wears Valentino.

The June 2010 issue hits newsstands today.

You can read the whole interview at MarieClaire.com.

Here are some extracts.

SJP on the demands of working on the film: “When you’re on set, you’re working 90-hour weeks, you’re never home, you’re exhausted. There are times when all of us have been sensitive, and sometimes feelings get hurt. But I don’t have any regrets about how I’ve treated people.”Read More…

Anna Paquin For Marie Claire UK March 2010

“True Blood” actress Anna Paquin features in the March 2010 UK edition of Marie Claire UK.

I love this shoot by Frederic Pinet, which sees Anna looking amazing in an array of fabulous dresses, set in a supermarket.

She is seen wearing an Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 dress, which Camilla Belle has also rocked.

Other designers such as Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Lanvin, Victor & Rolf and Prada are also seen, as well as a Josh Goot dress that Isabel Lucas also wore recently.

Anna talks about her engagement to “True Blood” co-star, Stephen Moyer, plans to have children and the current vampire trend.

On her relationship with fiancé Stephen Moyer: “We’re pretty mundane. We walk our dogs, rehearse lines. But our shared passion for our jobs is a really exciting thing. It’s part of the reason we ended up together.”

Jennifer Garner & Jessica Biel For Marie Claire US March 2010

I’m so utterly and totally in love with Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel’s Marie Claire US March 2010 editorial.

The first thing I said when I saw the cover was “SEE Jessica, when you put on a bit of make-up and wash your hair you ARE a stunning woman”.

Hopefully when Jessica goes on the promo tour for her new movie “Valentine’s Day” we will see more of this.

My fingers are crossed, but I won’t be holding my breath.

The actresses – who have now apparently become BFFs – look delightful on the cover wearing Isaac Mizrahi and Marchesa.

The rest of the editorial sees them wearing more Marchesa and Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

As much as I love the glamorized pictures, I also love the black and white more natural pictures which show what great friends they’ve become.

Here are some extracts from their interview. You can read more at MarieClaire.com.

Garner on her husband Ben Affleck filming “The Town”: “I’m so impressed by his discipline. He gets up and works out every day at 4am before heading off to work. Every day. I used to do that sometimes for Alias.”
