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.

Jennifer Lopez For Vogue US April 2012

Jennifer Lopez looks glamorous in a red Bottega Veneta gown on the cover of American Vogue’s April 2012 shape issue.

The rest of her editorial shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott sees the sexy American Idol judge wear red hot looks by Michael Kors and Valentino.

Between judging on American Idol, her music projects and the imminent release of her latest movie, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’, Jennifer has a very busy spring ahead of her.
In the magazine, Jennifer talks about her diva image, boyfriend Casper and motherhood.

On her diva image: “Sometimes I think it’s just because I have a nice car and I’m not afraid to wear a big fur.”Read More…

(click on image to enlarge)

Frederic Aranda captured Vogue editors from all its magazines across the world as they joined forces for a very special Fashion’s Night Out in Tokyo to celebrate fashion and to lend their support to Japan as the country recovers from the devastating earthquake and tsunami earlier this year.

This is the very first time such a photo has been taken.

You will no doubt recongise Ms Wintour who celebrated her birthday, but here’s the who’s who from left to right: Yolanda Sacristan, Spain (seated), Kirstie Clements Australia (middle), Anaita Adajania – India (back), Christiane Arp, Germany (seated), Angelica Cheung, China (standing), Franca Sozzani, Italy (seated), Mitsuko Watanabe – Japan (standing), Anna Wintour, America (seated), Emmanuelle Alt – France (reclining), Alexandra Shulman – Britain (seated), Victoria Davydova, Russia (standing), Anna Harvey, representing Brazil and Greece (seated), Seda Domanic – Turkey (seated), Myung Hee Lee – Korea (seated), Rosalie Huang -Taiwan (standing), Eva Hughes, Mexico and Latin America (standing), Paula Mateus – Portugal (seated)

I love that Emmanuelle Alt is the rebel in the pack as stays true to her style.

Ms Wintour just can’t live without those Manolo’s.

Rooney Mara For Vogue US November 2011

‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ actress Rooney Mara graces the November 2011 issue of Vogue US wearing a Ralph Lauren gown which has an embroidered dragon motif on the back.

She doesn’t let that crazy haircut hinder her as she looks stunning in the rest of her editorial, which was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

We see her wearing Alexander Wang, Marchesa, Calvin Klein Collection, Bottega Veneta and a Vera Wang gown which took my breath away.

It will be interesting to see what style direction she takes during the promotional tour of this movie, as she has the edgy haircut to contend with.

The first time I featured her, she looked very pretty wearing a blush Alberta Ferretti dress. Somehow I think her look will be a lot darker for this movie.

In her interview, Rooney Mara, younger sister to Kate Mara discusses losing weight for the role, how her aesthetic has changed, and the media frenzy surrounding the movie.

The issue hits newsstands on October 23.

Below are some extracts from her interview, or you can read the whole story over at Vogue.com.

On losing weight for the role: “One of the things that make our version that much more heartbreaking is that even though I am playing a 24-year-old, I look much younger. I look like a child.”Read More…

Kate Moss For Vogue US September 2011

Kate Moss graces the cover of American Vogue’s September 2011 issue wearing a modified Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 dress.

The issue takes you inside her summer wedding to musician Jamie Hince.

This editorial is a mix of sexy pictures ranging from Kate with her husband wearing Rodarte in a forest to candids of the happy couple and their wedding day.

There are a few pictures below. To see more go to Vogue.com.

Here are some extracts from Kate’s interview with Hamish Bowles:

After a romantic trip to Thailand two years into their relationship: “We were just so loved up, and he asked me to marry him every day.”

On the day Kate finally said yes whilst watching the documentary series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings: “I am so romantic about Gypsies. They’re not allowed to do anything until they get married. So they all get married really young, at sixteen. You can’t believe the dresses. They’re like blinging butterflies times ten; they can’t move down the aisle! It’s so genius. I was just watching Jamie, so cute, and I was like, these girls, they just spend their whole life waiting for that day—let’s do it!”Read More…
