Lady Gaga For Vogue US September 2012

Lady Gaga lands her second American Vogue cover, but this time it’s the coveted September 2012 issue.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot Gaga for the cover, which was styled by Grace Coddington, donning a spectacular Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 purple mermaid gown.

The singer looks amazing on the cover, unrecognisable, but fierce nonetheless.

She talks to the magazine about her new fragrance, her ‘Born This Way Ball’ world tour, her meat dress and her music.

Be sure to check out this issue when it hits newsstands on August 14.

On her new signature scent: “The fragrance is called Fame. It must be black. It must be enticing. You must want to lick and touch and feel it, but the look of it must terrify you.”

On dreaming up a ‘fortress’ that lets her dance 50 feet above the audience for her Born This Way Ball world tour: “I really wanted to break the mold of what modern touring is now.”

On the reinvention of the meat dress for her tour: “We were talking about putting the show together and I said, OK, what if I was someone’s grandma and I was going to a concert tonight. How would I know that it was a Gaga show? And we all just sort of looked at each other and said, ‘The meat dress.’”

On her music-making approach: “I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius’. I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss the person you came with that evening, or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.”

Kerry Washington For Vogue Italia July 2012

Following the huge success of her hit TV series, ‘Scandal’, it’s no wonder Vogue Italia wanted to feature leading lady Kerry Washington for an editorial in their July 2012 issue.

Sporting a voluminous bouffant, and a sultry glare for her ‘60s style vintage glam shoot, the actress was captured by Mark Seliger wearing MaxMara, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Christian Dior, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana.

Known for her classy, elegant taste and impeccable personal style, Kerry looks stunning in these shots.

Kerry admits to the magazine that the haute couture side of things didn’t come naturally to her at first. She has since learnt to appreciate fashion as an art form and now fully embraces it as part of her chosen profession.

I have to say I’m surprised by this statement. She’s always come across as a natural to me.

Marion Cotillard Graces Three Covers For August 2012

This month you will not only see Emma Stone dominating the newsstand, but also Marion Cotillard who graces American Vogue, Vogue Paris, and Marie Claire UK for August 2012.

The French actress who stars alongside Anne Hathaway in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ was shot by Peter Lindbergh for American Vogue wearing a navy-blue luxe Ralph Lauren blazer.

Mario Sorrenti captured her in smouldering beauty in a close-up shot for Vogue Paris who’s August issue is devoted entirely to Parisian women. It’s a shame they removed her beauty spot.

For Marie Claire UK, Marion wears a pink jacquard sleeveless peplum top which was shot by Daniel Gabbay.

All three covers are great, but I would have to pick Vogue Paris as my favourite. I don’t feel much of a wow factor from the other two.

Katy Perry For Vogue Italia July 2012

Even though she’s a natural blonde, normally we associate Katy Perry with long dark tresses.

For her Vogue Italia July 2012 editorial she’s barely recognizable wearing a platinum wig with pale skin and heavy black eye makeup.

In two pics she donned the Linda Farrow for Prabal Gurung sunglasses we’ve seen on Lady Gaga, which adds to the futuristic feel of the photo shoot.

My favourite shot is of her wearing the McQ Alexander McQueen dress with the visor from the mainline collection.

Other looks include her looking chic in Jil Sander, on all fours in Dsquared2 , donning head-to-toe pink in Comme des Garçons, sweet in Valentino, daring in sheer Dolce & Gabbana and sexy in Donna Karan; all styled by Francesco Carrozzini.

She talked to Vogue Italia about her docu-movie, her eclectic tastes and her style.

Here are some extracts from her interview. Read more over at Vogue.it.

On showing her behind-the-scenes self in ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me': “I am not afraid to show the real me, the de-glamorized version, because I am not always the Katy Perry who is a bit cartoon-like that everyone relates to. That’s me on stage. But I like to show the entire spectrum of my personality. There are so many different Katy Perrys enclosed within one body, unfortunately.”

On her tastes being ‘eclectic': “I like small boutiques, handmade garments, ornamental details. It all depends on how I am when I wake up. But, by and large, I like anything that is fun. One of my favorite American designers is Jeremy Scott: I adore him because he doesn’t play along, and I do the same.”

On where she gets her look: “I say this even if I may sound egocentric: they are my ideas. But, obviously, I am helped by a stylist, my friend Wujek.”

Emma Stone For Vogue UK & Teen Vogue August 2012

At present you can’t pass a newsstand without seeing the gorgeous Emma Stone looking back at you.

There aren’t many actresses who can pull off a Vogue hat-trick.

For July she covered American Vogue, and for August she covered Teen Vogue and Vogue UK.

Sporting straight strawberry-blonde locks and heavily lined eyes, the raspy-voiced Revlon ambassador was captured by Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue UK wearing a MaxMara black-and-white houndstooth sweater and a wool-and-leather cap by the same brand.

I love the slightly mod look, it’s in total contrast to her Teen Vogue cover where she looks very sweet sporting a lighter hair colour whilst posing alongside boyfriend Andew Garfield wearing a Louis Vuitton dress which was shot by Josh Olins.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing Marc Jacobs, McQ by Alexander McQueen, Mulberry, Calvin Klein and Prada.

Which cover shot do you prefer?

Emma Stone for Vogue US July 2012

With Emma Stone’s profile continuing to rise, I knew it was only a matter of time before fashion’s current it-girl landed a Vogue cover – especially since she’s currently promoting ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’.

The actress and Revlon girl was shot by Mario Testino wearing a Nina Ricci dress on the cover.

We also get to see her wearing a pretty Jil Sander dress, a printed Dries Van Noten ensemble with a Stephen Jones cap and a fun lace Versus dress.

She talks to Vogue about struggling to come to terms with being a ‘movie star’ and she also discusses the moment she realised what fashion actually meant.

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

On realising what fashion actually meant: “It was a red dress (Lanvin gown at the 2011 BAFTAs), it was asymmetrical, and the minute I put it on I thought, Oh, this is what fashion does for people. It makes them feel like it’s an extension of themselves.”Read More…

Charlize Theron for Vogue UK May 2012

Surprisingly, Charlize Theron makes her Vogue UK debut on the cover of their May 2012 issue.

The blonde beauty, known for her close association with Dior, wears a sky-blue Versace Spring 2012 gown on the cover which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

The rest of her editorial she does wear Dior, of course, and Luisa Beccaria.

In the magazine goes on sale Monday April 9, Charlize talks about her adopted baby boy, Jackson and her days as a model in the 90s.
