Victoria Beckham For Vogue Turkey August 2010

It may not be the American Vogue cover she so desperately wants, but it’s yet another Vogue cover for Victoria Beckham.

The fashion designer sports long hair for her Vogue Turkey August 2010 cover which was shot by Ellen Von Unwerth.

The first thing I noticed in her editorial is that she’s not doing “the pout”.

In her editorial she wears one dress from her own Fall 2010 collection, but the rest of her editorial sees her wearing Turkish designers.

In her interview she said that she was excited to wear Turkish designers for her shoot. “I just love their avant-garde style” she gushed.

I’m not sold on the cover, as she looks a little crazy, but the rest of the editorial is amazing.

I love it when she punches out of her comfort-zone.

The issue hits newsstands this weekend.

Marion Cotillard For Vogue US July 2010

The beautiful Marion Cotillard graces the July 2010 cover of American Vogue.

The French actress wears Dior on the cover which was shot by Mario Testino, but the rest of her editorial sees her wearing a lot of Nina Ricci, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and Aquilano.Rimondi.

In her interview Marion talks about her Oscar winning performance in La Vien en Rose and the inspiration she found for her character in “Nine”.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On vacationing in the Amazon after shooting ‘La Vie en Rose’: “It was there that I found myself articulating why Piaf was still living inside me. She had been abandoned as a child; her greatest fear was to be alone. Now I didn’t want to abandon her. I finally was able to say, ‘She’s been dead for 40 years; it’s OK.'” Read More…

Blake Lively For Vogue US June 2010

Blake Lively is the cover star for Vogue US June 2010. This is her second American Vogue cover.

My girl looks supa dupa hot wearing a Michael Kors mint-green cashmere slashed top and white bikini bottoms on the cover.

Mario Testino also shot her wearing Versace, Gucci and Herve Leger.

Predictable brands I know, but she looks fabulous in all the pictures.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On her Green Lantern role: “All I want is to be a hero to my nephews and nieces. I’m going to be the coolest aunt ever.” Read More…

Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Penelope Cruz & Bono For Vogue Paris May 2010

It’s rare to see one celebrity on the cover of Vogue Paris, but Carine has placed several on the covers of the May 2010 issue.

In total their are 3 covers featuring Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Bono and Penelope Cruz who is the guest editor.

Those featured either wear an Armani for Project (RED) tees or Gap Product (RED) tees as the issue celebrates the amazing work that (RED) is doing in Africa.

As much as I admire the sentiment, I don’t like any of the covers.

The whole thing feels very unnatural especially the Penelope and Meryl cover.

I’m not liking the wind swept hair, nor the over photoshopping of Kate Winslet who is barely recognisable.

What do you think?

Victoria Beckham For Vogue Germany May 2010

Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Vogue Germany’s May 2010 issue.

Those of you who have been following VB since time began, will recognise her trademark pose on the cover.

Trademark pose aside, her editorial shot by Alexi Lubomirski shows a different side to VB.

It’s gritty, not as prim and polished as we expect from VB.

We see her wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Luisa Beccaria, RM by Roland Mouret, Dennis Basso and of course a dress from her own collection in her editorial.

The issue is dedicated to jeans, so Victoria (who has her own denim line) spoke to Vogue about the secret to perfect-fit jeans.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On fashion being her passion: “My true passion belongs the fashion. I fulfilled a life long dream by staring my own label. It’s my baby. Although I’m now in my fourth seasons, I always feel nervous before and during the show. As a Spice Girl I could hide behind the other 4 girls, during my presentations I’m totally responsible”.

American Vogue March 2010 Bloggers Shoot

Back in November I received an email from Mark Holgate. The subject read, “American Vogue March 2010.” I nearly fell off my chair.

Mark asked me if I would be interested in participating in a fashion bloggers story the magazine was going to feature in it’s March 2010 ‘Power Issue’.

I was shocked that I was even on American Vogue’s radar, but incredibly honoured to be asked.

A few days before the shoot, I joking prayed that I was get a flu bug like Emily Blunt’s character in “The Devil Wears Prada”.

My mother always said be careful what you wish for, because 2 days before the shoot I got food poisoning and was so ill I couldn’t get out of bed.

I dragged myself out of bed 2 days later and finally made it to New York still quite ill, but determined not to miss this shoot.

All the bloggers who were invited to participate in the shoot met in the lobby of the Conde Nast building before we headed to the Bronx for the photo-shoot.

The bloggers included Bryanboy, Tommy Ton of Jak & Jill, Todd Selby of The Selby, Yvan Rodic of Facehunter, Garance Dore, Hanneli Mustaparta, Mary Tomer of Mrs O and Michelle Phan who has an amazing beauty tutorial YouTube page.

After being briefed about our shoot, we all went into hair and make-up. Read More…

American Vogue March 2010 Power Issue: Style Bloggers

Back in December I was invited by Vogue US to attend a photoshoot here in New York.

The feature focuses on bloggers who’s internet presence shapes and influences the fashion and style world for the March 2010 “Power” issue.

I haven’t yet seen the actual issue, but I found this link so I guess it’s no longer a secret and I can finally share it with you guys.

I can’t wait to run out and buy a copy of the magazine tomorrow.

I love the final picture they picked at the end of the video. I was scared of being cropped out.

It’s been a pretty amazing month.

I’ll tell you all about the shoot once I read the article.

** Thank you for your comments. Normally I would reply to you all, but I’m running between shows. Back to back today.
