Rihanna on the cover of Vogue = Perfection. The edgy, gorgeous singer was interviewed for the March issue, along with a photo shoot that will make your jaw drop. Rihanna talked makeup and wardrobe, explaining one of her unique fashion rules she lives by: ”If I’m wearing a top, I don’t wear a bra. If I’m wearing a bra, I just wear a bra.” This is evident in the issues cover and even more evident than that is how much she rocks the look.
In addition RiRi discusses her love for menswear and why the juxtaposition of a woman wearing mens clothing is so incredibly sexy. She talks about her childhood explaining, “When I was thirteen or fourteen, I didn’t want to wear what my mom wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanor. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head. It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mom to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts.”
A girl who prefers mens clothes and is even sexier in them than in feminine clothing?

27-year-old Lena Dunham, creator of Girls was shot by Annie Leibovitz for her first cover of Vogue! Her hit coming of age comedy has been a knockout success with winning rave reviews, awards and legions. Now scoring the cover of Vogue, there have been a lot of whispering. Last October, rumors of Anna Wintour wanting to feature Dunham on the cover for bringing the next generation of readers to the legendary publication. Sources at the time said the editrix was: “willing to violate a lot of Vogue traditions to do it, including putting her on the cover even though she doesn’t really conform to the body type that Vogue has featured for most of its history.” It’s not the first time Dunham has appeared inside the magazine though. As the interview with Nathan Heller inside the issue reveals, in 1998 she featured in a piece about “a New York pack of fashion-conscious kids.” But now having been shot for the cover is such a huge moment for Dunham! She is a woman whose very normal body shape is a refreshing departure from the skinny magazine standard.
You read it right, W Magazine’s six February covers are taking newsstands by storm. Taking all these home might be some back breaking work, but having a purse filled with Hollywood’s hottest talent is most definitely worth it. This ultimate power issue features Hollywood talent for you to immerse yourself during awards season. This month’s covers showcase Jennifer Lawrence, Oprah Winfrey, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, all photographed by Juergen Teller and interviewed by Lynn Hirschberg.
Elle Magazine has released its cover for February which displays television beauties Zooey Deschanel, Allison Williams, Mindy Kaling and Amy Poehler. The four all look stunning but the cover has received some backlash. It’s more than
slightly noticeable that the actresses, with the exception of Kaling, got a full three-quarter length photo, while hers is a close up. Talk around town claims that Elle is trying to hide that Kaling is a bit curvier than the rest of the ladies. It doesn’t help that being the only non-Caucasian, her cover was chosen to be done in black and white… Why does it seem like something is up here??
History shows, this wouldn’t be the first time Elle has faced some controversy in regards to their idea of body image. In 2010, Gabourey Sidibe landed the cover but sparked immense amount of issues when her photo was not only a close-up, like Kalings, but seemed as though her skin appeared magically lighter. Let’s hope Elle can prove their intentions, whatever they may be, are all honorable.

Okay, really? This just isn’t fair… Two incredibly gorgeous people fall in love, get married, have equally gorgeous babies and on top of it all are gracing the cover of Vogue?!?! It’s too much… However, the couple are featured in Vogue among interviews about their life, relationship as well as Victoria’s favorite beauty secrets.
