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…

Sarah Jessica Parker for Vogue US August 2011

The gorgeous Sarah Jessica Parker is the cover star for American Vogue’s August 2011 issue, which sees her wearing a winter white Burberry Prorsum Fall 2011 coat.

Mario Testino shot the family spread which includes husband Matthew Broderick, James Wilkie, Marion and Tabitha.

In the rest of SJPs’ editorial we see her wearing the same Bottega Veneta gown we saw on Emma Watson this week, plus the same Michael Kors dress Blake Lively wore to the MTV Movie Awards.

Chanel Resort, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta also feature in this playful editorial.

In the article she also talks about balancing family and a busy work life, raising toddlers while in her 40s, her love of acting, as well as how she’s very different from Carrie Bradshaw.

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

On her beloved “Sex and the City” character of Carrie Bradshaw: “Bradshaw’s life is nothing – nothing – like mine. I loved playing her, and it changed my life in lots of wonderful ways, but I’m not a crazy shoe lady, I don’t think about fashion all day long, although I have a great respect for the industry.”Read More…

Emma Watson For Vogue US July 2011

When I saw this picture of Emma Watson yesterday on the cover American Vogue’s July 2011 issue, I honestly didn’t recognise her.

After reading who it was, I showed it to my sister covering the name. When I asked her who it was she got it in one with no hesitation.

Maybe I’m so used to the ‘Hermione Granger’ Emma Watson, that I can’t see past the rouge lips, slick back hair and Prada Fall 2011 paillette covered dress.

The star works a Fall 2011 in her editorial featuring Tom Ford, Aquilano.Rimondi, Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana.

This summer Emma will say goodbye to Hermione forever when “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” is released in July, but Emma officially said goodbye to Hermione when she cut her hair short.

Emma talks to Vogue about finding herself after Harry Potter and balancing work and educations.

Here are some extracts from her interview, followed by her breath-taking editorial shot by Mario Testino.

On experimenting in the Harry Potter makeup trailer: “That was my playground. I would sit and play with lipsticks, foundations, and eye shadows; and every now and then [head of makeup, Amanda Knight] would let me do the extras’ face paint for the Quidditch matches.”Read More…
