Victoria Beckham graces not one, but two covers for the August 2014 issue of Vogue UK, which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier in the English countryside.

Opting for a rustic look, the designer wears Prada and Chanel outfits.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

Having turned 40 this year and with the first flagship store opening soon, the designer has much to celebrate.

On turning 40: “I looked at it [turning 40] and said to myself, I have four incredible children, an incredible husband, a business that’s doing very well. I’ve worked hard and achieved a lot. I don’t think I could have achieved much more.”

On the support from her husband: “I couldn’t be where I am without David. He gives me the security and encouragement to do what I do. I do the same for him.”

On not having any regrets: “Well I wouldn’t do anything differently. I’ve always worked hard and had a lot of fun, so there’s nothing I would change.”

Victoria’s Vogue UK August 2014 issue hits newsstands on Monday, July 7.

Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James for Harper’s Bazaar UK August 2014

There are two covers for the August 2014 edition of Harper’s Bazaar UK: one featuring Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James, and one of just Michelle on her own.

All the ladies are wearing looks from Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, with Michelle’s the most familiar as we’ve already seen this beauty on Cate Blanchett.

With ‘Downton Abbey’ returning for Season 6 in the fall on ITV, Harper’s Bazaar caught up with the ladies.

Michelle Dockery on how she’s ‘grown with the role’: ‘Lady Mary always seemed sure of herself, but “it was a brashness that came from insecurity, whereas now it’s different, she’s very confident in her own skin, and I guess [that’s] the parallel, really, with my own life; I feel like I’ve reached a point now where I’m much more content and confident”.’

Laura Carmichael on when a French journalist who asked her why the show is such a hit; what’s the secret to its triumph: ‘Instead of answering, I turned the tables and asked him what he thought. “Because it is full of women”, he said, and I was like, “God, you’re so right!”‘

Lily James on the daily education on acting and being an actor on set: ‘I’m learning a lot about how to be one of the “good” actors. You’d hope that it’s natural to be a good person, and kind, but I’m learning how to deal with long, sometimes boring days.’

To see the full photo shoot, which includes the rest of the female cast, in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, pick up a copy when the mag hits newsstands tomorrow, 4 July.

Miley Cyrus For Elle’s ‘Women In Music’ May 2014 Issue

Miley-Cyrus-ELLE-May-2014

Usually Elle releases multiple covers for the annual ‘Women In Music’ issue, but so far there is only one cover star and that is Miley Cyrus. Not surprising considering she has made the biggest noise (not necessarily via her music) this past 12 months.

The singer is rocking a Marc Jacobs fresh off the runway Fall 2014 metallic sequin wave-print tunic and flares, which is not surprising considering she is the face of Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 ad campaign.

Her classic blonde pixie cut and fresh face complete this beautiful look.

No word on what she said in her interview just yet; no doubt there will be something in there about her haterz, her music evolving, and how she doesn’t care what we think about her, etc etc.

Miley is currently on her ‘Bangerz World Tour’, which heads to Europe in May.

Eva Mendes For Flare Magazine May 2014

FLR05_Cover

Eva Mendes graces the May 2014 cover of FLARE Magazine, captured by Guy Aorch wearing a Chanel dress, bolero and pearl-accented necklace. The magazine hits newsstands April 14.

The brunette bombshell plays up her domestic side in ladylike looks from Zac Posen, Rochas and Chanel in the rest of the magazine, all of which are very much in tune with her new style.

Eva opens up to the magazine about style regrets, working with Miuccia Prada and what her mum thinks of her dresses.

Her mamá regularly emails her daughter critiques of her red-carpet outfits, entitled “Mom’s Review”.

On her Mum’s critiques: “She’s usually on the money. If she doesn’t like something, I can usually see why: it didn’t photograph well or looked weird around the waist.”

On her mother’s ideas about her style: “My mother always says she wants to see me in more fitted things! She’s always saying, ‘Show off your body, it’s not always going to be like this!’”

On how she hates skinny-jeans: “I’m always in dresses, in skirt—I think they’re so easy. People are always saying, ‘I love jeans, they’re so casual and easy,’ but I think jeans aren’t easy. They’re my worst nightmare.”

On the revealing outfits she regrets: “It’s not that I’m against body-conscious clothes: I have worn them on the red carpet or out, but when I’m photographed in them, I always regret it. For me, it’s always been the easy way out. When I wear something a little more reveal- ing, I think, Oh, gosh, I should have been more creative.”

On how she hates body-baring clothes: “I don’t like when it’s just me and I’m not working. I don’t like feeling like I’m on display.”

Amanda Seyfried For W Magazine April 2014

0414-1042x1389

Amanda Seyfried graces the cover of W magazine’s April 2014 issue – which was shot by Craig McDean – wearing a black-and-white Chanel swimsuit.

Lounging around in a selection of swimsuits by Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana – each, strangely, with a pair of cowboy boots – her smouldering cat-eyes and hot-fuchsia lip stand out more than her two-piece wardrobe. See the full editorial here.

The ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ actress talks about her recent vacation, kissing Megan Fox, presenting at the Oscars with Miley Cyrus, fame and her dog.
You can read more over at Wmagazine.com.

On her recent vacation: “I was at a resort, and I thought, I should be loving this—but I wasn’t getting anything done, and that terrified me. When I feel like I’m not accomplishing something, I feel like I failed the day. I guess I missed work.”

On kissing Megan Fox for Jennifer’s Body: “We kissed really well together. We have similar kissing styles! If I watch the scene, it’s actually really sexy… We got it done for the masses, and, sadly, the masses didn’t show up.”

On presenting at the Oscars with Miley Cyrus: “I have all these odd chapters. I do recall that both Miley and I were very nervous. And I also recall being backstage afterward, which was wonderful. At that point, the attention is no longer on you, and you suddenly feel like a princess. The magic of Hollywood hits me at odd, unexpected moments.”

On her fame: “It may be that I’m older, and it may be that social media is everywhere now. I don’t think I was really famous until last year—and I felt like no one paid much attention to what I was doing. That was good. But Les Mis was an international hit, and that changed things. Before, I was a little more anonymous.”

On her beloved dog Finn: “When I landed in Korea recently, there were people holding up pictures of Finn. In the past year, people just learned how to pronounce my last name correctly, but they all know everything about my dog.”
