Blake Lively for Lucky September 2013

Blake Lively Lucky

Blake Lively graces the cover of Lucky’s September 2013 issue which is a first for the new editor-in-chief, Eva Chen, formerly of Teen Vogue, who has given Lucky a makeover and taken the mag down a high-fashion route.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ star wears a cornflower-blue Gucci wool coat on the cover with the tag line “I don’t have a stylist. I trust myself”. Which she has said several times before. We get it Blake.

The rest of her editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier sees her wearing Givenchy, Anthony Vaccarello, H&M, Marc Jacobs and DKNY.

She opens up to the magazine about her marriage to Ryan Reynolds and the couple’s fashion sense.

You are read more, including the rest of Blake’s editorial over at LuckyMag.com. Here are some extracts from her interview. The magazine hits newsstands August 6.

On comments about her style: “I never think about how other people will respond to the way I dress. Dressing up is all about reflecting how I feel, not about the paparazzi”.

On marriage changing her style: “I was recently asked how my style has changed since I got married, as if I was living under some sort of dictatorship. I should hope I dress differently at 25 than I did when I graduated high school. I hope I never stop changing.”

On Ryan’s interior decorating skills: “I’m very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me. We influence each other in different ways. With film and TV, you don’t see the results for months. Building a home, you get immediate gratification.”

Amber Heard for Flare September 2013

Amber Heard for Flare September 2013

Amber Heard dons a beige blouse by The Row and matching A.L.C. skirt for her Flare September 2013 cover which was shot by Kurt Iswarienko.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing similar summery hued pieces by Derek Lam and Emilio Pucci.

Amber who talks to the mag about her upcoming movie, ‘Paranoia’, which she stars alongside Liam Hemsworth, growing up different, picking the right rolls and keeping mum about her relationship with Johnny Depp.

You can read the whole interview over at Flare.com. Here are some extracts:

On keeping quiet about her relationship with Johnny Depp: “It’s not part of my professional life. I want to be an artist. I don’t want to be a celebrity…You can find pictures of me [on the Internet] pumping gas, picking up dry cleaning, walking my dog, but nowhere are you going to find pictures of me hanging around at some nightclub…Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, where the world feels like they have a stake in your private life? I would never want it… I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be? I don’t want to change just because people are watching. I’ve always been the person who says what she wants.”

On her new film, paranoia, with Liam Hemsworth: “I loved how you’re dealing with a lot of old themes like greed and power, but it’s such a modern story. My character basically had to be smart enough to manipulate Liam Hemsworth’s character. Yes, there are sex scenes, but it wasn’t like she was falling at his feet.”

On growing up different in Austin, Texas: “I hated the idea of school dances, hated whatever was going on in pop culture. I didn’t have any concept of celebrities or Hollywood. I was always reading, reading and listening to music.”

On going horror heroine over rom-com romance: “If there was an interesting rom-com script, I wouldn’t be against it, but the stuff I have gotten is just girls who are dying to get the guy or be saved by the guy…At least the female characters in horror movies fight back and do something for themselves. They’re not just sitting around waiting for a man to save the day.”

On picking the right roles: “[The script] doesn’t say that these characters are ‘sexy.’ I’m not picking them because of that. I take roles that are interesting, and scripts that have female characters with depth.”

Katy Perry for Elle UK September 2013

Katy Perry Elle UK

Katy Perry graces the cover of Elle UK’s September 2013 issue wearing a plaid Dolce & Gabbana top and shorts. The cover image was shot by Mariano Vivanco.

In the mag Katy donned Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Alexander Wang and Sacai, all from the Fall 2013 collection.
In the issue, she talks about her on-again-off-again relationship with John Mayer, moving on from Russell Brand, plus she divulges the goss on what her relationship with Robert Pattinson is all about and her friendship with Rihanna.

Katy’s Elle UK issue hits newsstands tomorrow. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her friendship with Rihanna: I love her [Rihanna] and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has. There’s a lot of dark in this business. I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages – they are the root of their demise. It’s really unfortunate but you can’t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.”
On being in touch with Kristen Stewart regarding the Rob Pattinson rumours: “I sent her a text message saying, ‘I know you’ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person. I’m just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits’.”

On her relationships with “challenging” men: “The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they’re also wildly intelligent and poetic. I’m not interested in taming anyone – I’m pretty wild myself.”

On her split from John Mayer in February: “He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realised I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another. In relationships, it was hard for me to speak up and set boundaries. I think a lot of that was to do with the fear of loss.”

Olivia Wilde for Fashion Magazine September 2013

olivia-wilde

Olivia Wilde donned a Gucci ‘Heaven’s Bird’ feather-festooned frock on the cover of Canada’s Fashion Magazine for their September issue.

The 29-year-old actress is about to kick-start her promo tour for her latest movie ‘Rush’. She stars opposite Chris Hemsworth in the movie which is based on the true story of Austrian race-car driver Niki Lauda and his race with British competitor James Hunt.

She talks to the mag about her stylish character Suzy Miller who was James Hunt’s first wife, her relationship with fiancé Jason Sudeikis and her past experience of love.
Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her stylish, scandalous role in ‘Rush’: “It is based on a true story. I play Suzy Miller—who was James Hunt’s first wife. Suzy ended up leaving [James] for Richard Burton—who left Elizabeth Taylor for Suzy. My job in the film was to tell the story of James’s tumultuous marriage, which was very ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ messy… I got to wear archive Gucci head to toe through the movie!”

On learning a few tricks from fiancé Jason Sudeikis: “His skill level is so high. I really have learned a lot from him, especially when it comes to being bold and taking risks as an actor within a role. Comedians are so great about trying things, like doing seven takes in seven different ways and really not being afraid to stumble.”

On her past experience with love: “It’s really hard to jump into a relationship after you feel you’ve been through a difficult time…I liken it to a burn victim jumping back into a Jacuzzi. It took a lot of coaxing.”

On how Marchesa upped her star wattage: “People remember what you wear. At the Golden Globes in 2010, I wore a brown Marchesa ball gown that people still stop me on the street to ask me about—which I think is so funny. I never thought I’d be recognized for a dress. [Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig] really understand my body and I love when they take risks. I think they’re one of the more adventurous design teams.”

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.
