Carmen Carrera, you work it out girl. The trailblazing performer dresses to kill in an editorial for W magazine shot by Steven Meisel. For any fashionista, you know that’s a huge deal. Major kudos to the RuPaul’s Drag Race alum for scoring such a high-profile editorial.
Not only does she get to model for one of the greatest fashion photographers of all time, but she’s surrounded by a sea of gorgeous male models to boot. Several of which I’ve profiled in my Model Behavior feature. But out of all the studly guy she shares the camera with, the one I’m most jealous of is actually another female. Beyotch gets to pose with none other than Linda Evangelista. How insane is that? Check out her Carmen’s fashion spread below.
Well hello there Miss Jennifer “Elizabeth Taylor” Lopez. The “Live It Up” singer serves some major Liz realness circa Cat On A Hot Tin Roof era for Mario Sorrenti. The famed photographer snapped Lopez for the latest issue of W magazine. The cover debuted a couple of days ago, but the inside editorial have just surfaced. Wearing vintage fur (PETA would so not approve), J.Lo. heads back to her childhood home in the Bronx in glamorous style. Wouldn’t expect anything less from the pop diva.
Inside the accompanying interview, Jennifer reveals she was homeless before getting her big break. She also talks about her relationship with her mom, her own parenting skills and her feelings about returning to the Bronx for the shoot and interview.
“The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us they were separating after 33 years of marriage. I think that’s why I was nervous about coming here today. It’s like seeing someone from the past—you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.”
Thank God for Emma Watson. Otherwise, current child stars might think the only option in the future is to become the next Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes. The former Hermoine Granger proves the entertainment industry isn’t to blame for child stars turning to hot messes but bad parenting and not having a solid support system. That’s right Dina Lohan, I’m talking to you.
Even though she has a red hot career on her hands, the 23-year-old revealed in an interview to Rookie Mag that she’s returning to Brown University in the Fall. She attended the Ivy League for her second year, but left to focus on promoting the last chapter of the Harry Potter franchise. There were rumors (which she debunked) that her departure were caused by bullying. Clearly that’s not the case since she’s returning back to Brown to finish off her senior year.
“I really like the fact that [Brown] has a very open curriculum, that there aren’t any requirements. Really, I’ve kind of been in charge of my own education since I started out on ‘Potter’ when I was 9 or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to, and I could take independent studies if I wanted to on subjects that weren’t necessarily in the curriculum. I did an independent study on the psychology and philosophy of how and why we fall in love, which was awesome.” – Emma Watson
It’s so nice to see a young Hollywood starlet that is not only pretty and talented, but who is also intelligent and full of class and grace. Good for her and all the girls who admire her. She is the definition of a good role model, don’t you think? Just in case you missed it, I posted her recent editorial in W Magazine snapped by Michael Thompson. She looks absolutely stunning.
GORGEOUS. That’s all I kept thinking as I looked through Marion Cotillard’s spread in W Magazine. The 37-year-old star is beyond red hot in the editorial. Wearing a black blob, the Rust and Bone actress resembles an edgy sophisticated version of Katy Perry with an S&M twist.
Snapped by photographer Tim Walker, Cotillard poses with a model dressed up as a toy solider in a couple of shots. It’s a creepy interpretation of Babes in Toyland. The shots with hands grabbing her from cloth walls are intoxicating as well. For the accompanying interview, Marion sits down with Lynn Hirschberg and discusses her childhood, acting inspiration and her Oscar experience. Check out several photos and quotes from her W issue below.
“I always wanted to express myself by being someone other than myself. I needed to experience the human soul—something more than just my soul. I wasn’t enough! When I was 10 or 11, I played an angry housekeeper in a play at camp. I was yelling at everyone. I remember the feeling I had when it was over. I really loved it.”
To commemorate W magazine’s 40th anniversary in circulation, the publication has recruited four Hollywood actresses to stroll down 40 years of fashion, scandals, art and beautiful people. I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence is a little annoyed she posed for the magazine last month dressed like a plucked turkey and not for these wicked collector covers. I know I would be.
Snapped by Steven Klein, Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johannson and Keira Knightley appear on four different covers representing a different decade. Keira rules the 2000s in a Chanel braided tweed jacket, while Scarlett rocks the 1990s in a Dolce & Gabbana silk lace dress and silk and lace bodysuit, accessorized with a nose piercing and dark red lips. Mia powers up the 1980s in a Balenciaga wool jacquard bustier. Lastly, Rooney swings the 1970s in Prada and a pimpin’ Albertus Swanepoel hat. Check out the other covers and each girl’s thoughts on their respective decade below.
“I think skinny jeans and micro-miniskirts are very unfriendly. I’ve been known to wear both, but on some days it seems like they were invented to make you feel bad about yourself.”
Filming for The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, began this week, but looking at Jennifer Lawrence’s latest magazine cover, you’d think she was shooting the sequel to Black Swan. The 22-year-old actress graces the October 2012 cover of W magazine looking like a half-plucked bird. Like the cover, Lawrence is outfitted with feathers resembling peacocks, flamingos and other fine feathered creatures in the issue. In one of the outfits she looks ready to adorn a Thanksgiving dinner table. Gobble, gobble. Photographer Tim Walker snapped the bird-themed editorial.
In the accompanying interview, Jennifer talks about Hollywood, The Hunger Games and her upcoming film, Silver Linings, co-starring Bradley Cooper. At one point she even refers to her mom as a classy Dina Lohan (sounds like an oxymoron, right?). Check out a few quotes and pictures from her W magazine feature titled, “Gen W“. Side note, is Gen W a thing? I’ve heard of Gen X and Gen Y. Are we just going to go through the entire alphabet ;)
It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s Linda Evangelista. The 47-year-old supermodel appears in the September 2012 issue of W Magazine. Titled “Super Linda“, the fashion spread has Evangelista channeling her inner superhero. The shoot perfectly highlights her uncanny ability to change persona depending on the assignment. She truly is a chameleon and one of my favorite supermodels of all-time. Love that she’s back for this edgy editorial.
Snapped by famed photographer Steven Klein, the Canadian-born beauty dons thigh high boots, heavy duty capes and fantasy leather catsuits in an 18-page spread for the publication. Part Marvel Comics, part sex store catalogue, part Kill Bill promo. She’s the definition of “fierce” in all the pics. At times she looks like a haute couture cross between Michelle Pfeiffer circa Catwoman days and transgender icon Amanda Lepore. Edward Enninful was responsible for the wicked styling. Check out some of the photos below.
In “Prometheus” Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender played siblings. They’re definitely anything but in the latest issue of W magazine. Unless you’re from the South ;) I kid. The two actors get hot and steamy in a fashion spread snapped by Mario Sorrenti with styling by Edward Enninful. They have sex appeal oozing out of every pour.
Given that “Prometheus” opened in theaters last month, the timing of Theron and Fassbender’s cover seems a little late. Since the film’s release, it has earned over $122 million domestically and almost $300 million worldwide. I’m sure their appearance in the August 2012 issue of the publication will bump up those box office numbers even more.
In the accompanying interview, the two’s chemistry is evident in their playful banter. They discuss the first film they saw of each other, along with what’s more difficult to shoot- sex scenes or death ones. “It depends on who you’re doing the sex scene with,” Theron says. “I don’t have issues being naked [pauses]. That sounds very slutty.” “Kind of. I didn’t want to say anything, but yes,” Fassbender responds. It’s those kind of responses that make the interview an entertaining read. Check out a few more pictures and quotes below.
