The actress discusses her career since her star-making turn in Avatar, along with the ups & downs of Hollywood in her latest cover shoot for In Style‘s December 2022 issue.
One star whose style, talent, & influence has been on the rise in recent years is model-turned-actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who you might recognize as the beauty & force behind Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, as well as the 2020 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, & most recently, The Menu, for which she has earned another Golden Globe nomination.

Australian beauty Margot Robbie rules every red carpet & film she stars in, creating more & more opportunities for female filmmakers as a producer & inspiring the next generation of visionaries to challenge stereotypes & break barriers. In the December 2022 / January 2023 issue of Vanity Fair, the two-time Academy Award nominated star discusses her upcoming roles in Babylon, opposite Brad Pitt, & Barbie, alongside Ryan Gosling.
Keke Palmer is a celebrity whom I love to watch during interviews. She’s vibrant, verbose, & aware of herself. The confidence & class the Nope star exudes continues with her latest interview & cover for The Hollywood Reporter.
Decked out in designers like Gucci, Balenciaga, Stuart Weitzman, Michael Kors, Simone Rocha, & Sophia Webster, the powerhouse performer speaks to journalist Mikey O’Connell about her relationship with fame, her dual identities as Lauren Palmer behind the scenes & Keke in the spotlight, as well as her career goals to create opportunities for marginalized individuals in Hollywood.

For the final print issue of Allure, the beauty expert magazine, Friends alum Jennifer Aniston strikes a provocative pose & taking a candid stance about where she is in her 53 years of life. In the article, written by Danielle Pergament, with images captured by Zoey Grossman, The Morning Show star reveals her past fertility struggles, comments on the criticism of her marriages to Brad Pitt & Justin Theroux, discusses her hair are line LolaVie, & discredits assumptions about her career choices.

It may seem like singer / actress / producer / entrepreneur / mental health advocate Selena Gomez doesn’t stop, but in the pop star’s recent cover story for Rolling Stone, taking a break from the spotlight, or from endless hours of work & personal chaos, is a necessary for everyone–not just celebrities. As mental health awareness becomes more & more integral for an ever-changing society, A-listers & artists are speaking out more honestly regarding how they handle their traumas, find balance between their careers & fame, & continue to learn more about the human psyche.
In fact, Selena’s new documentary, My Mind and Me, reveals the explicit, very personal, & gritty journey that she continues to experience with her own health issues, including her bipolar diagnosis. The documentary, which includes a beautifully heartbreaking song of the same name, is available to stream on Apple TV+ starting today. InRolling Stone‘s article, written by Alex Morris, photographed by Amanda Charchian, & styled by Kate Young, Selena’s candor & vulnerability set the tone for what viewers should expect in the film, especially once audiences hear the “My Mind and Me” ballad that hit airwaves yesterday.
In every interview, song, & role she takes on, Selena’s charm & celebration of kindness remains grounded in her intense desire to discuss what really matters for not only her own personal fulfillment, but also how to give back through charity efforts & returning support to her fans & the public how grapple with their own mental health. It’s no wonder that her portrayal of Mabel Mora on Hulu’s Only Murders from the Building & the hi-jinx on HBO Max’s Selena + Chef have contributed to the Rare Beauty & Wondermind founder‘s status as the most-followed individual on Instagram.
Take a look at the trailer for the documentary below, along with the lyric video for “My Mind and Me.”
When Adele sings, talks, poses for a photo shoot, & posts on Instagram, the world stops & for good reason! ELLE knows this, which is why the 15-time Grammy winner is featured on the coveted September issue cover in all of her diva glory, beauty, & style. In the article, written by Emma Carmichael & photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Adele discusses the heartbreak behind cancelling her Las Vegas residency, being a mother to her 9-year-old son Angelo, the authenticity of her performances, her continued excitement to share her recent album 30 with audiences, & her relationship with sports agent Rich Paul.
For her show in London earlier this year, Adele recounts the audience’s response to her hit ballad “Someone Like You,” stating, “I wrote that on my own, in my little tiny flat, when I was 21…The fact that they all still remember the words and love the song, it was just incredible.” Also, the singer cherishes & still learns from the early days of her career to keep her grounded, sharing, “I remember writing 19 very, very much, and going from the studio to meet my friends at the pub. I remember getting on the Tube and going to every meeting I had, and I remember going to after-parties of my friends’ little gigs. I remember all of those things, and I remember all of the first times I did something. I remember them even when I’m doing them for the millionth time.”
For the highly anticipated September issue of Voguemagazine, tennis star, style icon, & entrepreneur Serena Williams announces her “evolution” to other interests than tennis, which is what she calls it since the word “retirement” gives her pause. For the article she wrote, as told to Rob Haskill, Serena reflects on her career, women’s equality in sports, being her sister Venus’ shadow growing up, the challenges & joys of motherhood, future professional endeavors, & all of her fears as she moves forward into the next chapter of her life.
While sharing her athletic journey to winning championships as a young girl, Serena states, “I want to be great. I want to be perfect. I know perfect doesn’t exist, but whatever my perfect was, I never wanted to stop until I got it right…I learned the lessons from Venus’s losses instead of the hard way, from my own. It was as if I were playing her matches, too. I’m a good mimic. Growing up I tried to copy Pete Sampras. I loved Monica Seles, and then I studied Monica Seles. I watched, I listened, then I attacked. But if I hadn’t been in Venus’s shadow, I would never be who I am. When someone said I was just the little sister, that’s when I got really fired up.“
In addition to Serena’s intimate revelations about her personal goals & family confessions, the article includes a “Life in Looks” video, flashing back to the star athlete’s photographs with Vogue, style on the court, red carpet history, & more thoughts on her fashion choices, all of which are such an integral part of Serena expressing who she is.
If you’re still catching up with the second volume of Stranger Things‘ 4th season, lean in! The anticipation for the 5th & final season is real, especially as star Sadie Sink is stepping more & more into the spotlight both on the Netflix fantasy drama & in other projects. The 20-year-old redhead is the face of FASHION magazine’s September issue, speaking to the article‘s author, Annika Lautens, about her journey to stardom starting out in regional theater in Houston with her brother, along with learning from colleagues, like Taylor Swift & Helen Mirren.
For the feature article’s photo shoot, styled by Karen Clarkson & photographed by Royal Gilbert, the Fear Street star’s feminine side sparkles with lots of pink, lace, regal jewels, & pointy toe pumps, which are a departure from her personal off-screen style that includes baggy jeans, a tee, & a blazer. However, the looks for the shoot derive from designers, such as Miu Miu, Versace, GCDS, Bulgari, Moschino, Gucci, Alaia, & Prada.
Usually Style Darling Daily‘s Cover Craze posts categorize stylish stars on the cover of magazines, but a new images worthy of celebration include the companion art to Beyoncé‘s Renaissance album. The staggeringly stylish collection of images goes beyond Vogue or what any music video can do in setting the tone for the 28-time Grammy winner’s seventh studio album that was produced over the course of the last three years, including during the pandemic, featuring a mix of dance, pop, funk, & techno sounds to get listeners moving!
Not only are the album’s images inspired by Beyoncé’s mature & artistic side, but according to Insider, the three-act project “pays homage to queer ball culture” & “is indebted to her late Uncle Johnny, whom she described in 2019 as ‘the most fabulous gay man I’ve ever met,'” adding, “‘He was my godmother and the first person to expose me to a lot of the music and culture that serve as inspiration for this album.'”
What do you think of Beyoncé’s album & art? Have you been listening to “Break My Soul” on repeat? What’s your favorite song on the album?
As the recent covers of fashion publications get more & more glamorous, readers are also served plentiful substance concerning diversity & culture-conscious topics since the language of fashion encompasses all identities. This is why Vogue‘s August 2022 issue, featuring Golden Globe-winner, Emma Corrin (they/them), is such a milestone for LGBTQ+ visibility & an opportunity to explore the fluidity of fashion. Emma is the first openly non-binary cover star for the magazine, embracing both fashion & body hair their way—unapologetically!
Spector not only writes about Emma’s rise to fame as Princess Diana on Netflix’s The Crown, but also their upcoming projects, including My Policeman, alongside Harry Styles, & an adaptation of Lady Chatterly’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence, as well as Emma’s social media presence supporting & raising awareness for the trans community. Emma states, “In my mind, gender just isn’t something that feels fixed…and I don’t know if it ever will be; there might always be some fluidity there for me…If you have a platform and you’re able to use it, that’s obviously so important—and I met some incredible people through it.”
Even if you’re not a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner empire, you can’t deny the impact that the 5 sisters (Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, & Kylie) have had on social media, fashion, beauty, & pop culture. Most recently, Kim Kardashian is the star of Allure‘s August 2022 cover, where she speaks with writer Danielle Pergament, getting real about her career & family goals, the public’s perception of her, beauty standards, & her commitment to her beauty regimen with her recently launched nine-step skincare line SKKN by Kim. Along with the article, the images are photographed by Danielle Levitt, featuring Kim decked out in long blonde hair & styled by Kyle Luu with pieces from Skims, Alaia, Bulgari, Paris Texas, Schiaparelli Haute Couture, & Jimmy Choo.
Kim states, “There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe. When I was a teenager, [the look] was just blonde waifs…My mentality was…always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”
On the media’s perception of her success & intelligence, Kim shares, “I think I’ve always just been the underdog…Being on a reality show and that’s not respected…Feeling like I need to work harder to show you guys that I’m not the person you think.” The aspiring lawyer also adds, “It would be amazing to retire being Kim K and just be a lawyer. But if it all went away, I would be just as happy…“I would want people to walk away and be like, ‘She was a good person, and she did some good things.’”
Check out the video below from Allure, where Kim answers questions about beauty:
The article, written by Adam B. Vary, includes not only Natalie’s reflection on her career, including the painstaking transformation that she experienced while filming Black Swan, her Academy Award-winning role, but also she discusses family, giving back, activism for women’s rights, & upcoming projects, including Lady in the Lake for Apple TV+.
Natalie speaks to the publication about her own superhero experiences and wishes, along with how she prepared for the role.
On the red carpet for the premiere, Natalie continues to praise her fellow superheroes, stating how lucky she feels to be a part of such an important role for young girls.
Also, last month, Natalie appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, interviewed by comedy actor Sean Hayes, for more fun discussion about the film & Natalie’s preparations for it.
If you haven’t seen it already, here is the trailer for the highly anticipated film:
Zendaya could not get any more beautiful, yet here she is again, living it up in full-on glamour for the July 2022 issue of Vogue Italia, photographed by Elizaveta Porodina, wearing a couture jeweled Valentino minidress on the sultry cover with a statement Bulgari necklace & bold violet eyeshadow, which is very reminiscent of the beauty looks that characters on Euphoria wear. Am I right?
According to Vogue Italia‘s Instagram, Zendaya epitomizes the current generation of pioneering women, whom the actress credits black women of the past who have aided in her own success. The artistic images not only prove Zendaya’s influence on fashion, but also pop culture with her timeless style, refreshing intensity, & poised maturity. Vogue Italia shared Zendaya’s thoughtful reflections on her fame, “Sometimes I feel kind of silly being an actor, but then I remember the stories that I’m telling and the reasons behind them. Especially as of recent with Euphoria, I had so many people reach out and share their experiences of connecting with it, in the sense of loss or addiction or grief or mental illness and their struggles with that.”
More looks in the shoot were styled by Law Roach, featuring pieces from Del Core, Paco Rabanne, The Attico, Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, & more Bulgari jewels. However, the multi-faceted performer doesn’t get fazed by the designer duds & sparkle, commenting, “For quite some time, I have been able to maintain a minimum of anonymity so that I can do the same things I used to do, living a fairly normal life,” adding about her fans that “they’re really understanding that I’m human, even the hardcore ones and they want me to be happy and I genuinely feel that from them.”
Actress Taraji P. Henson is making waves not just in front of the camera as Cookie Lyon in Empire, but also on the big screen (of course, she did this in Hidden Figures too) with her new film out next year, What Men Want–a remake of 2000’s What Women Want starring Mel Gibson & Helen Hunt). She’s not just the star of the comedy, but also serves as executive producer for the film. For In Style magazine’s January issue, Taraji also discusses in the article (read here) about being a single mom & her 20-plus year career & her connection to her fans, both nationally & internationally.
The blonde bombshell discusses her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, established in 2014, as well as her new film Mary Queen of Scots co-starring Saoirse Ronan.

I. Love. Emma. Stone. My nose is glued to the screen whenever Emma Stone is promoting a film & has countless red carpet premieres to attend. She’s not only an iconic fashion chameleon, but her all-around girl-next-door goofball vibes makes me feel like we really could be best friends. I’m obsessed with her sense of style & will almost always vote her best dressed, no matter the competition. So, when it came to seeking out what she’s been up to, I was super excited that she was Marie Claire’s September cover star. Emma’s currently promoting her new film, Battle of the Sexes, all about tennis-legend Billie Jean King in 1973 & co-starring Steve Carrell, Emma’s Crazy, Stupid Love on-screen dad, who plays her rival, Bobby Riggs.
The interview for Marie Claire is conducted by funny lady Sarah Silverman, who has a girl crush on Emma that reads quite equal to mine, where Emma discusses the power each of our voices have in times of controversy & political uprising, but also the challenges that the Oscar-winning actress (for of course, La La Land) faced when becoming Billie Jean King for the new film.
The photo shoot (led by Greg Kadel) includes Emma wearing some gorgeous pieces from Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Bulgari, to name a few!
Battle of the Sexes premieres on September 22nd, just in time to kick of awards season & you can be sure that I’ll be on the lookout for Emma’s highly anticipated press tour fashion!
Are you going to see Emma Stone’s new film? Do you like the styling of her Marie Claire cover shoot? Which stars do you love to see on magazines? Happy Styling!
It’s that time of the summer when fall fashions are not just hitting stores, but also magazines too! September issues of fashion mags are perhaps the most highly acclaimed, ad-heavy, & competitive in capturing beautiful images of today’s most famous style icons. Vogue is celebrating their 125th anniversary as Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence graces the cover with photos from a slew of creative visionaries including artist John Currin, as well as photographers Annie Leibovitz, Inez & Vinoodh, & Bruce Weber.
During the interview, Jennifer discusses her love of reality television, the consequences of fame & judgment, as well as her upcoming projects. This includes her new film, Mother!, directed by Darren Aronofsky (& her current beau), as well as films working with Steven Spielberg & that rumored collaboration with Amy Schumer.
Which September issue are you most excited to see? Which stars are your favorites for magazine covers? Are you going to see her new film Mother!? Happy Styling!
Selena Gomez is a force to be reckoned with & her latest appearance on American Vogue (the first time she’s appeared on the revered fashion magazine’s cover) is just another example of how the multitalented star is truly herself & a superstar at the same time. During her interview, she discusses everything from mental health & therapy, growing up in the spotlight, why she’s ghosting on Instagram, how she’s keeping mum on her new relationship with The Weeknd, & what’s next for her both personally & professionally.
In the accompanying article, readers learn that she’s booked up filming movies with the renowned likes of Steven Spielberg & Darren Aronofsky, as well as her love for the Real Housewives reality shows. In her next role, she’s playing a Russian ballerina in the upcoming Red Sparrow & real-life journalist Lynsey Addario in It’s What I Do.
For no real, legit, justified reason at all, I was hesitant to jump on the Amy Schumer-loving bandwagon. In retrospect, the thought of it now is insane because I’m all about strong, confident, smart women who have a lot to say & say it well. Since I’m not a Comedy Central watcher (perhaps another flaw I should seek to rectify?), I didn’t know what Inside Amy Schumer was for the longest time. My first exposure to the Long Island native & comedy pioneer (shame on me as a fellow LI gal!) was during that one scene on HBO’s Girls during the season 3 premiere when she yells at Hannah & Adam at Grumpy’s after Adam broke it off badly with Shiri Appleby’s practically perfect catch character, Natalia. Watch it here. I digress.
I love everything that Amy Schumer is about & I can’t wait to read her book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo (read an excerpt here), which hits bookshelves on August 16th. It’ll fit in perfectly with my summer of humor reading by female authors, but what’s really the best of both worlds is that Amy is July’s cover girl for Vogue!
The article (by Jonathan Van Meter) is nothing short of fabulous & funny, inspiring & honest, & chalk full of quotes & one-liners from the Trainwreck star (Golden Globe-nominated too, by the way) you’ll walk away with still bouncing around in your head well into the later hours of the night. The comedian / actress / writer / producer / cover girl / Jennifer Lawrence’s bestie / all around badass of feminism bluntly & endearingly discusses her love life, the reality of her sexcapade past, her admiration of the late Joan Rivers, her feelings about the worlds of fashion & Hollywood, Hillary Clinton, & the importance of family.
If Amy’s words on the page (or website) aren’t enough to give you a giggle or smirk, check out the video below of Amy & Vogue editor Anna Wintour’s hijinx when they hilariously swap their respective comedy club touring & high fashion lives.
If you don’t subscribe already to Vogue, go buy the issue & support the print industry, if not for the glossy photos (by none other than Annie Leibovitz) of an elegant Amy traipsy through New York City in glamorous gowns & designer duds, then at least for the free perfume samples. Check out when & whereAmy is touringthis summer (her upcoming Madison Square Garden gig is SOLD OUT!)! Happy Styling!
