Cover Craze: Olivia Wilde for Glamour’s September 2014 Issue!


It’s about that time of year when not only is fall fashion hitting your favorite stores, but also the magazine racks with the coveted September issues, thriving with new outfit options for the changing of the seasons, as well as the trendiest new pieces to transform & upgrade your style. Actress Olivia Wilde graces the cover of Glamour, discussing her upcoming 30th birthday, her newest role as motherhood to baby Otis (with fiancé Jason Sudeikis), changing how women are perceived in the film industry, & her latest HBO project with Martin Scorsese.

However, it’s time to talk about the fashion shoot, under the direction of famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier, Olivia’s cover look is romantic in a Lanvin dress & Dior flower scarf. Other looks in from the shoot include Louis Vuitton, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, & Dolce & Gabbana, aong with accessories from Echo Design, Jennifer Fisher, & Yossi Harari.

Cover Craze: Kerry Washington Is Flawless For Lucky’s December Issue!


Kerry Washington for Lucky December 2013

I can’t think of a better way to send off 2013 (in the magazine world) than with Kerry Washington on the cover of Lucky‘s December issue. Not only is the Emmy-nominated actress one of the most in-demand faces in fashion, but she’s also my current celebrity obsession & secretly, I want to be her best friend! She’s utter perfection on the red carpet, but also captivates audiences on the ABC drama Scandal, as the always stylish Olivia Pope.

Kerry Washington for Lucky December 2013 02

In the magazine’s behind-the-scenes video, Kerry talks about her favorite looks from the shoot, including a sparkling red sequined number by Yves Saint Laurent & a sexy white mini dress from design house Versace. The much-gossiped-about cover shows a stunning Kerry with blunt bangs, frosted makeup, & a feminine frock by Dior.

However, it’s clear (as if it wasn’t before) that Kerry can wear anything & rock any look. She can don the glamorous Old Hollywood style, as well as strut in a super edgy rocker ensemble without even flinching.

Aside from her critical acclaim on both the small screen for Scandal & the big screen in the Oscar-winning film Django Unchained, Kerry has had a big year. She got married, is expecting her first child, & did a killer job hosting Saturday Night Live recently. It doesn’t look like the talented actress is slowing down any time soon & I know I can’t wait to see more & more of her on & off screen.

What do you think of Kerry’s photo shoot for Lucky? What’s your favorite look of hers?

Jennifer Lawrence for In Style December 2013

Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence can’t go a day without being photographed, and it makes sense, especially after catching this behind-the-scenes look during her recent photo shoot for In Style‘s December 2013 cover. Of course, we get to see the tall, leggy blonde with her longer, fuller hair, while still loving all the recent shots for her press tour of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Dior spokesmodel wows inside the magazine’s pages, decked out in luxe winter whites by designers like Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Céline, & naturally Dior Haute Couture. The ravishing images come courtesy of photographer Michelangelo Di Battista, who captures Hollywood’s it-girl alongside an article which features her chatting about being a high school cheerleader, being a sex symbol, her choice of not going to college, & her biggest spending splurge- so far!

Watch This Style: Claire Danes Goofs Around Behind-The-Scenes with Vogue!


Claire Danes for Vogue August 2013

I can’t wait for Homeland to come back for a fierce third season, but in the mean time, the stars of the Showtime drama are hitting the pages of Vogue‘s August 2013 issue. Cover girl Claire Danes recreates her on-screen dynamic with co-star Damien Lewis in a series of fashionable shots. In the video below, the pair playfully name their favorites… including movies, characters, physical attributes, & so forth. It’s funny & sweet to see the actress so light & humorous, when she’s always so serious on the small screen & when it comes to fashion.

Cover Craze: Shakira Sizzles For ELLE’s July Issue, Katy Perry Makes Her Vogue Debut, & More!


It’s definitely going to be one hot summer, especially when it comes to the latest magazine covers. I’ve been trying to squeeze in some mag time & get inspired for some new summer looks & what to look forward to with my upcoming vacation wardrobe. However, I couldn’t help but share the latest & greatest in store for July, especially when the headlines there’s so much to talk about!

First, Shakira hits up ELLE, talking about her position as coach on The Voice, along with motherhood, her relationships, & her international fame. Also, another foreign beauty is Salma Hayek Pinault on the cover of InStyle‘s July issue. The dazzling 46-year-old actress has really never looked better, especially in this stunning Yves Saint Laurent red dress. The third & perhaps most exciting cover belongs to Katy Perry who makes her Vogue debut, showing off a stunning & feminine side to the popstar in floral frocks like her cover look by Rodarte. Lauren Conrad talks up her ambition & goals as both fashion designer & writer in the sunny pages of Marie Claire, while also giving plenty of tips on how to look summer-ready with bangs.

Man of Steel starlet Amy Adams is not only this summer’s big-screen Lois Lane, but she talks beauty in the pages of Allure, sharing that her plain face makes for a great makeup canvas. Speaking of beauty, Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale makes her Lucky debut with a slew of edgy menswear looks, including pieces by Chanel, that are easy for any shopper of any budget to achieve! Helena Bonham Carter may be Tim Burton’s muse, but she’s certainly bemusing in the pages of Vogue UK, especially since images have recently hit the web of her playing the iconic role of Elizabeth Taylor for the upcoming BBC movie Burton and Taylor. Lastly, Kesha makes fitness look sexy, especially with a minimalist take on activewear fashions in next month’s Self. The blonde singer has never looked more naturally gorgeous as she talks about how she keeps her gams in shape!

Lily Collins is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s most sought after it-girls, especially by the fashion world. Now, as the face of Glamour‘s July issue, the daughter of Phil Collins is sharing her thick brows & pouty smile with the magazine during a nothing-but-stylist cover shoot at Bergdorf Goodman. Clad in a smattering of designer duds, photographer Ellen von Unwerth captures the Mirror Mirror star in Emilio Pucci, Dior, Christian Louboutin, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Burberry Prorsum, & Gucci.

Aside from looks all things spectacular in the magazine, the actress has four highly anticipated movies set to come out, including Stuck in LoveThe Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Love Rosie, & The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes. Also, in the video below, get a behind-the-scenes look at shoot, while Lily talks about some of the other famous Collin’s including Firth, Farrell, & a little drink known as Tom Collins!

Watch This Style / Cover Craze: Kerry Washington’s Super Hot ELLE Cover For June!


I was a little late joining the I-Love-Scandal bandwagon & shame on me for not taking Olivia Pope‘s side, especially when I’ve been catching up on the series, which stars one of Hollywood’s hottest it-girls, Kerry Washington. Not only did she have a stellar 2012-2013 with the success of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, & her latest comedy Peeples, but the New York native has hit A-list status with her consistently glamorous red carpet appearances, as well as her powerhouse character, Olivia, on the Shonda Rhimes-created television show.

Next month, the actress is featured as ELLE‘s cover girl for June 2013, & she’s never looked better. The shoot, which features amazing looks that mix both regal opulence with all-American elegance, was captured by Horst Diekgergdes & styled by Samira Nasr. Never has a pair of hot pants or the combination of denim & haute couture looked so refreshing & sophisticated.

Also, in the video below, Kerry discusses the challenges she faced while taking on her slave character in Django Unchained, as well as her respect for the art of comic timing. In addition, ELLE quizzes the actress on various scenarios about what-would-Olivia-Pope-do?
