Cover Craze: 36 International September Issue Covers!


Last year when I posted the amazing September issues, I featured a mere 21, but even though we’re already into the ninth calendar month, I figured that in celebration of New York Fashion Week (#NYFW), I’d expand & look for more. My mailbox is bursting with the American issues of some of my favorite magazines, but I was also delighted to see A-listers like Claire Danes, Keira Knightley, Kate Bosworth, & Mia Wasikowska on international covers. To keep this post short & sweet, here’s what we have!

Cover Craze: Michelle Obama’s 2nd Vogue Cover, Kim K for Cosmo, Nicki Minaj’s Makeunder For Elle, & More!


I know I’m looking forward to April for more than the fabulous spring fashions & big upcoming movies, but I have a lot of exciting professional changes ahead of me. However, there’s so much going on in terms of our favorite magazines & the big international headlines are looking more & more fabulous, guiding where fashion is headed as the weather begins to warm up. In this latest post for Cover Craze, I went all out with a total of 15 covers that I just couldn’t stop looking at & reading up on.

The biggest news in covers is that First Lady Michelle Obama returns to Vogue for the April 2013 issue in a sleek two-tone Reed Krakoff sheath dress, photographed by the always impressive Annie Leibovitz. In an interview with Jonathan Van Meter, FLOTUS discusses parenting, marriage, her duties as First Lady, as well as fashion. She shares with readers, “If you’re comfortable in your clothes it’s easy to connect with people & make them feel comfortable as well.”

Michelle Obama for Vogue, Julie Bowen for Lucky, & Emily VanCamp for Marie Claire Australia April 2013.

On the cover of Lucky, two-time Emmy winner & star of Modern Family, Julie Bowen, looks like the modern & sexy cool mom that we all wish we had, wearing pieces from Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Stars, & Pandora. Inside the svelte blond is contemporary & chic in J.Crew, Juicy Couture, Jimmy Choo, & DKNY. Speaking of TV stars, Revenge actress Emily VanCamp looks smoldering in a cut-out Michael Kors dress on the cover of Marie Claire Australia, sharing the spotlight with her dashing male co-stars  Gabriel Mann (Nolan), Barry Sloane (Aiden), & Nick Wechsler (Jack).

Marie Claire shows The Incredible Burt Wonderstone actress Olivia Wilde in a sexy sheer blue dress, as she talks about her engagement to Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudekis. As for Marie Claire UK, Mila Kunis, star of Oz the Great & Powerful, talks about her breakout performance in Black Swan, upcoming Hollywood projects, & taking a break from back-to-back movies.

New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, who takes the cover of In Style in a stunning Carolina Herrera gown. Also featured in the issue are pieces by Oscar de la Renta, Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Chanel, & Nicholas Kirkwood, as she talks about her love of all things nail art & being a role model for girls.

I featured Selena Gomez‘s breezy spring look for Harper’s Bazaar in my last Haute Headlines post, but what was awestruck by the young star’s shoot by Terry Richardson featuring red carpet looks by Akris, Dior, Calvin Klein, & Prada. The down-to-earth Texas native & star of Spring Breakers talks about her family traditions, stardom, & her new role as a single lady.

Elle unzips rapper / American Idol judge Nicki Minaj without the big neon hair or exaggerated eyelashes that she’s always famous for donning. Also, Elle UK pays homage to another star in music, Rihanna, who looks effortless in a checkered Louis Vuitton outfit (like from the collection we’ve seen on Kirsten Dunst & Kerry Washington). She talks about her future, family, & more from the pixie-cutted pop star.

Kim Kardashian is always in the news & while photogs are tracking her pregnancy style, you can see her pre-baby-bump curves on the cover of Cosmopolitan in a Sophia Loren-inspired look. Smash star Katharine McPhee look positively fresh-faced for front & back covers of Women’s Health. She models various different makeup looks including striking blue eyeliner, enhanced cheeks, & bold red lips. Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is the focus of People Style Watch & for her stylish red carpet looks in Stella McCartney, Hugo, & Michael Kors. Also, the mag looks at her street style in Thakoon & Tory Burch, as well as her changing hairstyles for previous films like Silver Linings Playbook, The Hungry Games, & X-Men: First Class.

Lastly, we see country crooner Taylor Swift for Vanity Fair, talking about how she’s the target of constant jokes regarding her love life, including the jab that Tina Fey & Amy Poehler made during last month’s Golden Globes. A topless Kate Hudson let her natural beauty shine for Glamour, decked out in layers of Chanel necklaces. The mom of two talks about her romance with Muse frontman, motherhood in her thirties, & how she balances it all. I almost missed seeing Emily VanCamp‘s second April cover for Canada’s Fashion magazine, but I was glad to catch the former ballerina & leading lady for the Captain America sequel in this gorgeous snake-print dress & necklace, both by Gucci.

Cover Craze: Miley Cyrus Bares It For Cosmopolitan, Victoria Beckham’s Leggy ELLE Cover, & More!


January isn’t even over yet, but there’s major buzz surrounding the upcoming March 2013 covers of the most popular fashion magazines, which is why I’ve updated Cover Craze. I guess this is natural, considering all the talk about spring fashion, upcoming films this year, & throngs of celebrities about to hit the red carpet for the Oscars. I’m sure there’s more to come since I haven’t seen what’s in store yet for Harper’s Bazaar, Shape, Self, Redbook, Marie Claire, Allure, or Elle in March.

The always stunning Dakota Fanning covers Glamour in a cute Mickey Mouse sweater, discussing the controversy behind her 2011 ad campaign for Marc Jacobs‘ fragrance Oh, Lola! Next, it seems that Lucky gets Lauren Conrad on their cover at least once a year & March is all about the designer behind Paper Crown & LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, who always gets the cat-eye right & talks about how she maintains her sleek straight locks. New mom Megan Fox takes on Marie Claire UK in a printed one-piece, opening up about her marriage, motherhood, & about her next career move.

Miley Cyrus has once again proved that she’s not a little girl anymore on the cover of Cosmopolitan, revealing more than just her cleavage. She talks about her latest album, being friends with Katy Perry, & prioritizing her relationship with her fiancé. The stunning co-stars of Oz: The Great & Powerful, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, & Mila Kunis, share the cover of InStyle in romantic pastel looks, as we anticipate at least three upcoming red carpet premieres for the fantasy Disney film. Lastly, Victoria Beckham takes over ELLE UK, wearing only best, including Lanvin, Burberry, Miu Miu, & of course her own brand. The hard-working designer candidly explains her work ethic, trust issues, & what’s next for the Beckham brood in 2013.

There are so many great covers coming out for the fabulous February issues of my favorite magazines & I’m definitely looking forward to flipping through the magazine’s pages to learn about what’s going on in the glamorous celebrity lives of these multi-faceted actresses & Style Darlings. 

First up, Jennifer Lawrence shares her million dollar smile for Vanity Fair‘s cover, including some nuggets of her always charming humor in the featured article.  Zooey Deschanel doesn’t compromise her adorkable look for Glamour in a befitting Prabal Gurung sweetheart dress in aqua.  Perks of Being a Wallflower actress Emma Watson reveals her post Harry Potter plans & how she never compromises her work ethic in an edgy rock star shorts look for Marie Claire UK. Jennifer Lopez gets fierce in Fendi for a silvery, sexy look for next month’s Harper’s Bazaar. Dancer / actress / singer Julianne Hough talks about her relationship with Ryan Seacrest & personal goals for Cosmopolitan‘s love issue!Jennifer Lawrence for Vanity Fair, Zooey Deschanel for Glamour, Emma Stone for Marie Claire UK, Jennifer Lopez for Harper's Bazaar, Julianne Hough for Cosmopolitan, Katharine McPhee for Lucky, Jessica Chastain for InStyle UK, & AnnaSophia Robb for Teen Vogue.

As we anticipate the return of Smash, former American Idol singer Katharine McPhee gets a bold striped look for Lucky.  Hollywood it-girl, Jessica Chastain, makes her mark on InStyle UK‘s cover in a feminine Christian Dior look.  Lastly, I don’t normally follow teen magazines, but The Carries Diaries is about to premiere on January 14th & the show’s star, AnnaSophia Robb, is featured on Teen Vogue, looking every bit a young Carrie Bradshaw.

Cover Craze: 2012 Goes Out With A Bang, Featuring Dakota Fanning, Marion Cotillard, Britney Spears, & More!


We’re barely two weeks into November, but already the 2012 covers for the hottest magazines have hit the web & I have a jam-packed post here, featuring ten must-have & must-see issues from here in the United States, as well as abroad. This includes a much-talked-about Britney Spears on the cover of Lucky (airbrushed much?), Cameron Diaz repeating the Chanel cocktail dress that Emma Stone wore back in June for Elle UK, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence in Balenciaga for Elle, Dakota Fanning for InStyle UK, Australian actress Isla Fisher sharing her fitness tips for Women’s Health, Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard for Harper’s Bazaar UK, singer Nicole Scherzinger for Marie Claire UK, Selena Gomez going glam for Glamour, Taylor Swift breaking away from her good girl look for Cosmopolitan, & a showering Scarlett Johansson for V magazine, promoting her latest role as Janet Leigh in Hitchcock.

Cover Craze: Six Fabulous Mags Featuring The Faces Of Emma Watson, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, & More!


I couldn’t decide which October 2012 issue to feature in my next Cover Craze post, so I searched the web for a bunch of covers, which helps cover a lot of bases. Anyway, I’ve just about finished filing through the heaps of pages from the ripe September issues & can now start sorting through what October has to bring, especially considering the fact that we’re nearing the official start of fall this weekend! I’ve selected only 6 October issues so far b/c this is what I’ve received in the mail & I’m still super anxious to see what’s going on with In Style, Shape, Harper’s Bazaar, & Allure.

Be sure to check out Nashville star Hayden Panettiere on the cover of Women’s Health, where she talks about how she’s dealt with the rise to fame from child star to leading lady.  Also, get your girl friends together for a gossip session when you’re looking at the very umm… informative issue of Cosmopolitan with New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel on the cover, looking all sorts of adorkable, as always. I’m loving Emma Watson‘s grown out pixie cut right now & that she’s taking some very youthful, but elegant fashion risks in her article for Glamour.  Did anyone see her on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon promoting her new movie, Perks of Being a Wallflower? Adorbs!

For the season fashion mag reader, Keira Knightley continues her reign as period drama princess while talking about her latest film, Anna Karenina, as the role of a lifetime for VogueGwen Stefani proves that she’s still got it for Marie Claire, baring her abs (two babies later!) while No Doubt preps for their long-awaited comeback. Check out the music video for their latest single “Settle Down” here! Lastly, Britney Spears puts her pout to good use with the help of some stylists for Elle, showing off a combination of some pop / rock star style & talks about her latest gig as a judge on X-Factor alongside British grump, Simon Cowell.  Which magazine cover is your favorite? Who do you turn to for the best advice on fall fashion? Happy Styling!

Show Me The Shoes: Cosmopolitan’s Line Of Pumps, Flats, & Boots For JC Penney!


So it’s time to talk shoes & I’ve been hitting up some of my local favorite stores for all the best deals to try & get the best ideas on how to update my fall wardrobe.  I’ve been to JC Penney twice in the last week & kept to the clearance racks, but while I was checking out the website, I found that one of my favorite magazines has joined the designing ranks.

Cosmopolitan, yes that magazine, has created a very sexy, sophisticated, & modern collection of intimates & accessories sold exclusively @JCP.  This also includes the above shoes (yay!) ranging in affordable prices- not to mention that when the big fall sales start that these prices will just get better! Check out the Jackie pumps ($37.00), Burma pumps ($40.00), Ingrid pumps ($37.00), Mary flats ($30.00), Zima flats ($30.00), Olive boots ($55.00). Personally, I’m crazy for the sequin flats, but also can’t get enough of the neutral & gold-tone on the Burma pumps, which are prefect for mixing the nude shoes trend with metallic details.

Which shoes are your favorite? For more from Show Me The Shoes, check out previous posts, including leopard print flats at several price points, summer sale items from Charlotte Russe, the season’s latest designer styles @Neiman Marcus. Happy Styling!

Magazine Must-Haves: March Madness Means More Style, Especially With Selena Gomez!


After finally sifting through the piles & piles of magazines that I’ve been neglecting, I was so happy that spring is just around the corner (even though in New York, it feels like it’s here).  To help usher in the new season, Selena Gomez is doing double duty this March on the covers of both People Style Watch & Cosmopolitan.

I kept my focus on the great style featured in PSW, one of my favorite style / fashion mags & loved these three looks worn by Selena, which are of course from some months back, but still show off her youthful & flirty side, perfect for preparing your wardrobe for the spring.  First we see Selena in a white BCBG Max Azria Grecian-inspired mini dress with some major shoes by Sergio Rossi.  She mixes professional with cute in a corset by Matthew Williamson under black trousers & a shrunken blazer with Giuseppe Zanotti Design pointed toe bowed shoes.  Lastly, at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, Selena looked refined, fresh, & glamorous in a top by Giambattista Valli with a two-tone mini skirt, Casadei silver shoes, & a clutch by Cecelia.

Some of my favorite pieces from PSW’s March issue include those pictured to the left.  If you haven’t heard already, designer Jason Wu has created an amazing line of clothing & accessories for Target, including the flap satchel ($49.99).  Michelle Obama, Diane Kruger, & Shailene Woodley are fans of the designer, who I wrote about on Culture Mob, in my column A Dash of Fashion.

Ditch the old frumpy cardigan & try a floral kimono cardigan ($24.80) like this one from Forever 21 to wear with your favorite white tee & jeans.  The soft flowiness of the top is also perfect for wearing over a little black or white dress, if you’re looking to dress it down for a more casual, but stylish event.  For more flowy jackets like this, check out some of my picks @Macy’s, Charlotte Russe, & Torrid.

I was also very excited to recently read about Ivanka Trump‘s latest collection, which is sold @Lord & Taylor & Macy’s.  This includes the very chic ‘Ivana’ silk top ($115.00), which is out of my typical shopping budget’s price, but hopefully these styles will go on sale soon! The line includes very stylish, muted handbags which are perfectly neutral to match with any tailored suit or spring dress when the weather gets warmer.  Also, the shoes are fabulous, including evening sandals, sexy pumps, casual flats, & classic boots.

Speaking of shoes, I couldn’t help buy gasp when I saw the Fioni ‘Kutzie’ knot pump ($29.99) in navy from Payless in the pages of the magazine since I’ve been eyeing them when I returned home from Italy a few weeks ago.  If you’re not a fan of the navy with the stripes, have no fear, the shoes also come in luxe black patent leather, as well as a sexy nude with suede details at the peep toe. If you plan on buying these shoes online, use the coupon code 65634 for 20% off & it expires on 3/19/12.

For more on Selena Gomez from Style Darling, take a look back at Red Carpet Review for her outfit changes when she hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards & also an older Darling of the Day post where Selena’s cute in pink with some fierce Christian Louboutins!
