Jessica Chastain For W Magazine May 2012

Jessica Chastain was front row during Armani Prive for Spring 2012 Couture Fashion Week back in January and it looks like she was also there to shoot her W magazine editorial for the May 2012 issue.

Her stunning beauty comes to life in this artistic Couture editorial shot by Paolo Roversi and styled by Edward Enninful wearing Valentino, Armani Prive, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Givenchy and Atelier Versace.

Some of you weren’t that blown away by her red-carpet run in the lead up to the Oscars, so how do you feel about this high-fashion editorial?

Jessica Biel For W Magazine April 2012

Newly engaged Jessica Biel dons a Louis Vuitton swimsuit on the cover of the April 2012 issue of W magazine.

The rest of her editorial shot by Mikael Jansson sees her wearing Gucci, Prada and Miu Miu.

She talks to the mag about the first-ever movie she remembers seeing, how she got her start in acting and her girl-on-girl action in her new movie, ‘Total Recall’.

Head over to Wmagazine.com for the whole interview, or check out the extracts below.

On the first movie she remembers seeing: “The Goonies. I never identified with girls, and the cast was all boys. Girls were nervous about going into caves; they were scaredy-cats—and I wasn’t into that at all. I loved the idea of being with a crew and having an adventure. I was really interested in pits full of snakes.”Read More…

Carey Mulligan For W Magazine January 2012

Carey Mulligan wears just a Nina Ricci raffia tweed jacket and cotton bra on the cover of the January 2012 issue of W magazine.

The tagline for the issue is appropriately title “Carey Mulligan: Naughty But Nice – The star of Shame sheds her good-girl image.”

Carey’s high dramatically editorial, shot by Michael Thompson was given a 60s theatrical styling treatment by Edward Enninful.

The editorial sees her wearing Louis Vuitton, the one person who I hope will bring this Spring 2012 collection alive on the red carpet, Prada, Miu Miu, Jean Paul Gaultier and Rochas.

In her interview the British actress talks about nude scenes and her unsettling and haunting new film, ‘Shame’.

Here are some extracts.

On her nude scene: “I’ve never, never been naked in a film before; I’ve been topless once or twice, but always in sort of very innocent ways. And I’ve always been sort of staunchly feminist about it, I’ve never relished the idea of doing it, and never if it was inappropriate or gratuitous in any way. But I just felt it was absolutely right; that’s exactly who she was. She wanted to be seen, she’s an exhibitionist and she’s provocative.”Read More…

Kristen Stewart For W Magazine September 2011

Kristen Stewart looks amazing on the cover of W Magazine’s September 2011 issue wearing a Max Mara’s mohair and wool sweater, with big barbarella hair as she stares at us with her piercing green eyes.

She looks breath-taking in the rest of her editorial which was shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott wearing the same Gucci dress Beyonce Knowles wore on her cover for Harper’s Bazaar UK, plus Junya Watanabe, Dolce & Gabbana and Theory.

The cover is my favourite picture as we get plenty of attitude whilst being quite vulnerable.

In her interview she talks about growing up, getting married, and giving birth—as millions look on.

Some extracts are below, but you can read more at WMagazine.com.

On her early career efforts: “I did two commercials, one for Porsche, but I was definitely not the type of child one would cast in a commercial or any TV that you’d typically go out for as a young kid. I wasn’t the type of kid who would be in stuff that kids watch. I wasn’t cutesy.”

On her tomboy qualities: “I have brothers, and that so-called boyish quality was something that I was deathly self-conscious about when I was younger. I was, like, No, I’m a girl. Actually, I’m still embarrassed to say that.”Read More…

Tilda Swinton For W Magazine August 2011

I nearly passed out when I saw Tilda Swinton on the cover of W Magazine’s August issue.

The queen of androgyny sent shivers down my spine with her captivating editorial which was shot on a futuristic Icelandic landscape by photographer Tim Walker.

She graces the cover wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011 silk velvet tuxedo and silk blouse designed by Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti.

He captures Tilda wearing many looks including Blumarine, Céline, Chloé, Zero + Maria Cornejo and Comme des Garçons.

Tilda portrays an albino alien who fell to earth, reflecting W’s current fascination with androgyny and men’s uniforms.

In the issue Tilda talks about what it was like playing the mother of an evil child, androgyny and she shares what she really thinks about Hollywood.

Extracts are below, but you can read more at wmagazine.com.

On her own style icons: “David Bowie—whom I’ve been orbiting ever since I saw The Man Who Fell to Earth in 1976—and my father, Maj. Gen. Sir John Swinton. They are individuals with whom I share the same planetary DNA.”Read More…
