When Melissa McCarthy descended upon the red carpet at last night’s ELLE’s Women in Hollywood Awards, we imagine she had primed herself to be bombarded with questions about her controversial cover for the magazine.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it probably shouldn’t apply to magazine covers, but Reese Witherspoon might just be an exception.
Time sure flies when you’re having fun trying on Tiffany jewels with Karen Elson and attending plastic surgery runway shows, which is why we were more than a bit taken aback when we stumbled upon Elle‘s October issue. Weren’t we just rounding up all the September covers, like, yesterday? Normally, we’d consider the half of [...]
While no fashion magazine we’re aware of has ever put a terrorist on the cover, it’s not like the industry is immune to controversy. Whether it’s underage models, racial sterotyping, an abundance of skin, a shortage of body fat or any combination of these things, it seems every new turn gives us reason to peek a little closer for a bad weave or a horrifically amputated limb.
Nicki, is that you?! The perennially wigged-out, neon-lipped, falsies-sporting rapper covers the April issue of Elle, and the glossy convinced her to ditch the day-glo in favor of a way more natural look. Check her out…
Taylor Swift‘s face has been smiling, smizing, and otherwise staring out at us from newsstands everywhere for the better part of the past year. The 23-year-old kicked off her cover spree with Vogue‘s February 2012, and since then has covered Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Vanity Fair, to say nothing of the countless tabloid covers she’s popped up on with boyfriends Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles (They’re on the rocks! They’re moving in together! He’s cheating!). It’s enough to make even the biggest fan of Swift’s music feel exhausted. And, lo and behold, WWD published their report of 2012 newsstand sales today, and it looks like Swift’s covers haven’t been the sales coup the publishers were expecting. But why? We have some hypotheses.
Last night, stars in both California and Paris closed out the week on an haute note in high fashion wares and fun cocktail frocks. In Los Angeles, ELLE‘s Women in Television celebration brought out small screen stars from series like “Mad Men”, “Revenge”, and “Homeland”, while across the pond, the Sidaction Gala Dinner drew fashion insiders in fresh-off-the-runway ensembles. But whose look gets your vote?
Nobody has a face quite like Naomi Campbell‘s. That much is crystal clear in the February issue of Elle, which features a killer spread of the supermodel and an accompanying article to drum up excitement for her new show called, well, The Face.
Last year’s masthead musical chairs isn’t over just yet, and the first major change in 2013 is the appointment of Kate Lanphear to T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
Unlike other pregnant celebs who strip down for magazine covers,
Angela Chase Claire Danes kept her clothes on for the cover of ELLE‘s February issue. In fact, the new mom doesn’t even look like she was eight months pregnant at the time of the photoshoot with her first child with Hugh Dancy.
We’ll admit: we had no idea ELLE Serbia existed until we received a tip about the mag’s latest cover.
Today is a good day for Jessica Biel, fashion-wise. First she won us over on the red carpet with her weird but wonderful tie-dyed Versace dress, and now she’s smiling out at us from the cover of Elle‘s January 2013 issue in Raf Simons‘ Christian Dior.
Pretty much every major masthead you can think of these days is going to look a lot different this time next year. From beloved editors being ousted after struggling to rake in the ad dollars (Sally Singer at T, for one) to reams of staff leaving for greener ($$) pastures (see Harper’s Bazaar), the industry-wide game of musical chairs has been going on for months now. And with many major positions still left wide open, it shows no signs of stopping any time soon.
There are many reasons we love Jennifer Lawrence — she plays kickass Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games, she’s stunning, and she’s real. We mean real real, as in she’s not afraid to speak her mind. Case in point: her B.S.-free Elle cover story.
Our girl crush Solange Knowles fronts the November issue of Elle South Africa, and the cover is so bright that we had to dim our laptop screens. But really, we mean: we’re obsessed.
Elle‘s annual “Women in Hollywood” issue is here, and on the cover is a woman who does not, in fact, live in Tinseltown at all, but rather right here in NYC: Sarah Jessica Parker!
Britney Spears nabbed the October cover of Elle, and looks sweet yet fierce in a studded Versace number. The corresponding spread is a mix of tough ensembles, and even includes a cameo from Spears’ fiance Jason Trawick. Oh, and of course Kim Kardashian is involved.
Selena Gomez has been showing off her sexier side as of late. She flaunted her curves in Elle‘s July issue, and this weekend, she launched her eponymous fragrance at Macy’s Herald Square dressed in Versace short shorts, a bandeau top, and a blazer.
We still think of Selena Gomez as the spunky Wizards of Waverly Place star — not a bombshell cover girl. But we might have to rethink that after seeing her on the cover of Elle’s July issue.
