Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Numero September 2013

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Numero September 2013

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked amazing gracing the cover of Numero’s September 2013 issue.

The model/actress wears a satin skirt and a Gucci Fall 2013 sheer black-and-gold netted tulle top embroidered with metallic degrade sequins on the cover, which may be giving you a case of déjà vu.

That’s because she wore the exact same dress on the red carpet back in May to the Met Gala.

On the cover, Rosie sports centre-parted glossy straight locks with green streaks and a lighter lip colour, in contrast with the half-up, half-down hairstyle and dark-red lips she wore on the red carpet.

Since the cover would’ve been shot roughly two months ago, surely the editors should’ve done their research to know she had worn this gown before.

Kate Moss for Allure August 2013

Kate Moss Allure August 2013

Captured by Mario Testino wearing a Dennis Basso fox-fur-and-velvet shrug, Kate Moss is the gorgeous cover girl for Allure’s August 2013 issue.
The British model, who is the spokesperson for St Tropez and Rimmel, also wears a fox-fur Marc Jacobs coat and a goat-hair jacket by Adrienne Landau for her editorial.
The usually private model opens up to Allure about plastic surgery, rumours about her weight, and the best piece of advice she got from her ex Johnny Depp.

Allure’s August 2013 issue hits newsstands Tuesday, July 23. Here are some extracts from her interview. Read more over at Allure.com.

On tabloid rumors: “It was horrible, especially the anorexic thing. The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s just ridiculous; I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged . . . ‘ But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody’s illness. I wasn’t anorexic.”

On her approach to fashion and beauty: “I try to be a little bit chic. I wouldn’t wear sweatpants. I wouldn’t wear a twinset.”

On her famed relationship with Johnny Depp: “Never complain, never explain.”

On being a celebrity: “Everyone’s a celebrity. But I’m kind of a celebrity now, so even though I’m not an actress, people know my name. I’m not just a face.”

On her daughter Lila: “She’s watched The Devil Wears Prada ten times, and she’s got a desk in her room with a phone… She puts a little outfit on and picks up the phone: ‘Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office.’ I say, ‘Lila, do you know who Miranda Priestly is in real life?’ But she just doesn’t care. She’s like, ‘Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office. Can you hold? Patrick Demarchelier on the line!’ I died when I heard her do it. So funny. She doesn’t have a clue who she is, but it’s word for word.”

Claire Danes for Vogue US August 2013

claire-danes-cover-story-06_134646500817

Claire Danes graces the cover of American Vogue’s August 2013 issue wearing a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 trench coat with a gabardine body overlaid with a rubber rain shield, gun flaps and sleeves.

The editorial, which was shot by Annie Leibovitz, features Claire with her ‘Homeland’ co-star Damian Lewis in what looks like actual scenes from the show.

With the main difference being Carrie has traded in her boring black pantsuits for a grey Victoria Beckham dress, a sexy backless Calvin Klein frock, a chic Hermes coat, a sleek Narciso Rodriguez gown and a racy red Donna Karan sheath.

In her interview, Claire shares details of her comeback after having trouble landing roles following her award-winning role in ‘Temple Grandin’, for which she won Best Actress awards at the Emmys, Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, as well as talking about becoming a mom and meeting Barack Obama.

You can the whole interview over at Vogue.com. Here are some extracts.

On the worldwide popularity of Homeland: “We have a phenomenal number of illegal downloads in Lebanon.”

On not finding work for two years following ‘Temple Grandin': “It was confusing. I got a lot of plaudits, and it didn’t translate into more work. I was really, really struggling during that time. After a while you have to start to doubt yourself. It was grim. I was very hurt. Two years of not working was brutal. And a point came where I thought, I really like interior design. Someone suggested, ‘Maybe your real success is in your personal life.’”

On attending the Golden Globes as a new mom: “I went on the red carpet, went upstairs, fed Cyrus. Went into the ceremony, got the award, went back to feed Cyrus, went out again. . . . Then it was ‘Now you meet the president.’ I had these new boobs; I’m wearing a big Jessica Rabbit dress, and I’d been living in sweat pants for so long. . . . It was strange. It was dreamy, surrounded by my parents and my husband. It was one of the best nights of my life because of this perfect mash-up.”

On today’s female movie stars: “I’m so impressed by Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan. They have this exquisite taste. They are very gifted in their ability to make great choices. I didn’t have that rudder. There’s the movie star that plays herself and the movie star like Meryl [Streep] that has this wonderful, glamorous persona intact and is undone every time she takes on a new character. I think I’m astounded and titillated by that.”

Jennifer Lopez for W Magazine August 2013

Jennifer Lopez W August 2013

With her hair in a darker hue than we are used to seeing, Jennifer Lopez donned a long-sleeved Gucci gown in a black net tulle with a heaven’s bird embroidered motif from the Fall 2013 collection for her W magazine August 2013 cover.

She talks to the mag about growing up in the Bronx, her relationship with her mother, and parenting.

Here are some extracts from her interview. You can read more over at wmagazine.com or pick up the issue when it hits newstands July 16.

On being close to her childhood home in the Bronx for the interview: “The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us they were separating after 33 years of marriage. I think that’s why I was nervous about coming here today. It’s like seeing someone from the past – you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.”

On her and her mother’s relationship: “My mom and I butted heads. I didn’t want to go to college – I wanted to try dance full-time. I was homeless. But I told her ‘This is what I have to do.’”

On parenting her kids Max and Emme: “I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard. I’ve learned something about kids – they don’t do what you say; they do what you do. I watched my parents.”

Victoria Beckham for Vogue China August 2013

Victoria Beckham Vogue China

Victoria Beckham graces the August 2013 cover of Vogue China, which was shot by Josh Olins and sees the designer wearing Tiffany & Co. silver hooped earrings and a Nina Ricci Fall 2013 ensemble that we saw fellow Brit Carey Mulligan wear to the Australian premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby’.

In the rest of her editorial, we see a beautiful black-and-white close-up shot, and VB wearing a Prada coat.

In the issue, she opens up about juggling motherhood and running her expanding fashion empire.

On juggling work and motherhood: “When you are successful the hardest thing is maintaining that level of success, so you work harder to maintain what you have achieved. It’s a huge juggling act, when you are a working mother and looking after your family, millions and millions of women around the world are doing this every day. But it’s not easy and yes, you feel guilty every time you walk out of the door to go to work.”

On seeing women wearing her dresses: “I have been in the limelight for over 20 years. I am not on an ego trip, empowering women and making them feel sexy and great when they wear my clothes means more than thousands of people clapping. Empowering women is what makes me feel good.”

On Chinese women and her Chinese fans: “I love China. The women really understand fashion and I can honestly say the women who come to my events are some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. They have remarkable bodies and are happy and positive and I love that. I think they know what looks good, how to accessorise and have beautiful hair and flawless skin. When I come to China I get given many little gifts and notes from the fans and that genuinely means a lot to me.”

Chloe Moretz for InStyle UK August 2013

InStyle-issue-August-cover-Chloe-Moretz

Chloe Moretz graces the cover of InStyle UK’s August 2013 issue wearing a Christian Dior Fall 2013 black-and-white-houndstooth and pink-crochet dress.

The 16-year-old actress, who stars in the upcoming movie ‘Carrie’ alongside Hollywood star Julianne Moore, also wears bright-hued looks by Simone Rocha and Jeremy Scott in her editorial.

She talks to the mag about the prospect of falling in love one day, high-powered meetings in Hollywood, her parents’ break up and her mum’s cancer diagnosis.

Here are some extracts from her interview. To read more, head over to InStyle.co.uk.

On the prospect of falling in love one day: “You think, ‘Who’s out to deceive me?’ That’s hard. Especially growing up and liking guys and, maybe, ‘Do you want to be in a relationship? Is this person trying to be in my life because I’m famous?’ You can’t just like someone. They might be using you. I talk to Julianne [Moore, her co-star in 'Carrie'] about it and she says, ‘Look, just be careful. Trust your judgement but don’t get in too deep sometimes.’ Because, you know, when you’re young, you fall in love and don’t know it’s happening.”

On having high-powered meetings in Hollywood: “What have I got to be intimidated about? I talk to Donna [Langley, co-chair of Universal Pictures] or someone like that, and they’re like, ‘We’d love to do stuff with you. I’ll tell you our slate, tell us what you’re interested in.’ …Sometimes they’ll just be, ‘It’s so weird, you are 16 years old. You don’t talk like my kid does.’ And I’m like, ‘Trust me, when I’m with friends I might.’”

On her mum and dad’s break up, and her mum’s cancer diagnosis: “It made me realise, along with everything that happened with my dad, that your parents aren’t these godly figures. They’re not chosen by the heavens. They’re humans. Their bodies can fail and they can die at any moment. They make mistakes. They cry. They fight. It definitely, from a young age, put everything into perspective for me.”

Emma Watson for Teen Vogue August 2013

emma-watson-14

Emma Watson appears on her fourth Teen Vogue cover for the mag’s August 2013 issue, which hits newsstands today.

The British 23-year-old ‘Bling Ring’ actress was given an au-natural look for the cover – a look we haven’t seen before as I didn’t know she had such cute freckles – wearing a navy sweater with slicked-back hair.

Her editorial, shot by Boo George, sees her wearing Toga Pull, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Etoile Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent.

She talks to the mag about her early success, her fashion faves, shooting ‘The Bling Ring’ and how she still gets nervous when stepping onto the red carpet.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On her early success: “I think, in a way, I was very protected during Harry Potter, because I was working all the time. I would get in the car, go to the studio, and go home… It’s past the point now. Harry Potter was so massive, I don’t know if [my other projects] would even touch it, honestly, even make a dent.”

On walking the red carpet: “Every now and again, I feel a bit wobbly before hitting a red carpet. So it’s always nice to bring friends, especially because I love to see their reactions. It’s not normal to get out of a car and have, like, 80 people screaming at you, and so when they say, ‘This is crazy,’ it makes me feel slightly more sane.”

On her fashion faves: “I shop at Aritzia and Topshop, and I also love A.P.C. and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Chanel is amazing, and I wore a really beautiful black Dior dress recently that I thought was really cool. And I love Christopher Kane, Peter Pilotto… I’m always keeping an eye out for people who are new or up-and-coming.”

On her future plans: “I wish so badly that I could have a plan. I’m someone who likes to be organized and know what she’s doing, and this industry just does not permit that in any shape or form. You never know when a movie is going to start, if it’s going to get financing, where it’s going to be.”
