My favorite Victoria’s Secret Model, Candice Swanepoel can be found heating up the cover of Vogue Australia’s June issue. Styled by Katie Mossman, Candice slipped into Burberry for the cover. Throughout the issue, she is photographed by Victory Demarchelier where she can also be seen wearing Chanel, Bulgari, Michael Kors, and even a pair of American Apparel socks.
Looking stunning as always, Candice had the opportunity to shoot their annual “body” issue for the year. With a body like hers, I’m sure there is no surprise as to why she was chosen. Candice trains with celebrity trainer, Justin Gelband, who works with many other Victoria’s Secret models, as well. Gelband shares, “I recognised that the girls in the industry were really behind. They weren’t concentrating on their bodies; it was more about not eating, not exercising and doing everything they can to lose the weight as quick as they can.” While many models want to view themselves as “skinny,” Candice works to be considered “fit,” and that is exactly what she is. (Check out her toned arms on the cover!)
So you want a body like a Victoria’s Secret model? Read on to get some personal advice from Justin Gelband:
“To be the best you can be with the body you’ve been given and work on the curves you have, you need to stop looking at what everyone else is doing and stop worrying about the whole quick fix. Anyone can be model fit, anyone can be their own model in their own body. The best thing to do is to work on your nutrition, eat proper foods, get the proper nutrients and minerals and vitamins in your body and then at the same time, exercise properly. If you do that you’re not only going to feel good mentally but physically as well.”
Olympic Tennis player, Maria Sharapova is showing off her athletic body, not on the tennis court, but on the cover of Esquire Magazine, Latin America. The words displayed next to the blonde hottie, read, “The God of Tennis.” I mean, she is known as the second best tennis player in the world!
Sharapova posed in a variety of swimsuits, and shot on location at Hermosa Beach, here in the beautiful California weather. With her hair done by Abir Auberge, and make-up done by Fiona Stiles, the sporty tennis player was looking like a beach goddess.

The mother of two shares how she worked to slim down to the body she now loves. A few of her secrets on maintaining her hot bod are yoga and cardio. Twice a week, she takes exactly 90 minutes of yoga, as well as one hour of cardio, three times a week. With her work out regime, she has also been eating healthy. She drinks a protein shake for breakfast and lunch, while her dinner normally consists of chicken or fish, with a side of healthy veggies.
The motivation for it all is her upcoming show in Vegas, which opens this Fall, and will take place inside of Planet Hollywood. This is a show that I will definitely want to see! With her popular hits, and new sexy bod, I’m sure it will be a great one.
All I can say is, it’s about damn time. Actress turned fashion icon Kerry Washington has finally landed her first major cover shoot with none other than Elle magazine. The June issue, which will hit stands on May 21, has Washington looking radiant in a Marc Jacobs cardigan and metallic plaid shorts, proving that she really is “the luckiest broad in Hollywood,” (as she states in Elle’s exclusive interview). The 36-year-old actress also dishes out on her “silly and goofy” personality growing up, her original plans to be a clinical psychologist, and thoughts on prepping for those big red carpet moments.
And speaking of which, there’s no way you could have missed Kerry on the red carpet this past year. Landing her leading role in the ABC series Scandal, which dubbed her as the first African American woman to do so in a network drama since 1974, to being casted as leading lady in Quentin Tarantino’s highest earning film, Django Unchained, Kerry Washington has become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars and one of the most sought after fashion muses. She’s dazzled viewers with her unique, girly-yet-fashion-forward style, which has onlookers still infatuated with looks, even those that occurred months ago, including this this Peter Pilotto moment (a personal favorite):

How Washington has managed to not be featured on a large-scale women’s publication is beyond me. But I am certain that this will be just one of many.

Tomorrow, May 2nd, Khloe Kardashian-Odom’s cover for the UK issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine will officially hit the stands. She shared on her instagram “Incredibly honored to be on the cover of Cosmo UK! I still feel like I’m dreaming! Thank you.” Khloe shares some of her personal thoughts about herself and the person she is, and this girl is one confident, fierce, fashionista. Khloe has dealt with many harsh comments through the years, but she has a great way of not letting it seem like they have bothered her. Even I can see how tough she is, just by watching her on on E! Channels, Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s. Last Summer, I was at LAX on my way to New York, and saw Khloe and her hubby Lamar there at the airport. In my personal opinion, Khole looked AMAZING, and I think she has the perfect body. (We even boarded the same plane to NY!)
“I’m confident in who I am. I’ve always known that I’m not Kim and I’m not Kourtney – I’ve always been OK with that. I probably thought I was prettier before I entered the spotlight because being compared to somebody else every day does sort of beat up your spirit and soul. But it’s made me stronger. I’ve gained another level of confidence. I’m pretty tough. I want to say I don’t care, but of course (comments about my body) are going to sting.”
Vogue UK‘s Miss Vogue - their version of Teen Vogue - courts a spring flinging Cara Delevingne for their June debut cover! Alexandra Shulman describes the 20-year old Delevingne as ”Miss Vogue made physical” thanks to her “maverick sense of style and fun.”
Miss Vogue is UK Vogue‘s first attempt at trying the market for fashion loving teens and it’s currently uncertain whether they’d continue this venture. The debut issue of Miss Vogue will be packaged along with British Vogue which features Kate Moss (for the 32nd time!). So the first ones a treat!
The 40 year young actress, Gwyneth Paltrow is pictured on the front cover of People Magazine as the Most Beautiful Woman. People Magazine’s managing editor, Larry Hackett guest starred on Good Morning America to discuss Paltrow as their selection. He stated, “She’s relatable as a wife and mother who balances personal life and her career. She’s family-oriented, grounded, close to her mother and looks great,” which is why they went about choosing her as their number one pick.
Paltrow is married to musician, Chris Martin, and the two have two children together. The mother of two has recently come out with her very own healthy cook book titled “It’s All Good,” where she shares her secrets on staying fit, especially after kids. One thing she will never give up is her coffee with cream in the morning. She will exercise for two hours everyday, eat a light salad for lunch, and will eat whatever she wants when it comes to dinner. “I don’t believe in depriving yourself.” Paltrow seems like such a kind-hearted woman, no wonder she is loved by so many people around the world. And here is one fun fact I just had to share about her: At age 15, she spent one year in Spain as a foreign exchange student to learn to speak Spanish. Talk about a go-getter!
Now to come to a close about our beloved Gwyneth, the beautiful, fit, Spanish speaking, hot mama will be seen once again on the big screen in just a few short days for the new release of her film, Iron Man 3, on may 3rd, 2013.
