Taylor Lautner Suits Up For GQ Australia

Taylor Lautner is smoking on GQ Australia‘s October-November cover! This, guys, is retro done right, as opposed to Ian Somerhalder in Flaunt where the vintage vibe is just whack. He’s like the dapper, younger Don Draper without the angst! Side-parted hair? Checkkit!

Taylor’s interview with the mag also shows what a baller he is. He’s bought a silver, 2012 SLS AMG Mercedes-Benz whose basic model starts at $175,000. We’re guessing he didn’t just buy a basic version though. He said, “As you know, I’ve been driving the same car [a BMW 5 series] for the past four years. But I’ve always been a huge car fan. And I would always go to dealerships and drool. And I definitely always had my eye on this car. And it was a long process before I even considered getting a car like that. It’s a childhood dream.” We love the little humble bit in the end but dude still has major cred. We also suggest that you make sure to check out the gallery here for some seriously drool-worthy photographs of Tay. It makes the interview look like ancient Greek.

Ian Somerhalder, What Have They Done To You?

It takes a lot for this man to look bad. It’s well nigh impossible! And we love him far too much to dis him. So, instead, we’re just going to dis Ian Somerhalder‘s spread in Flaunt magazine. What is UP, people? We love retro, but Mad Men retro! This just hurts our eyes. It’s far too technicolor, the prints are too loud and there’s just too much going on! Especially since we’re using to seeing him as the devastatingly broody Damon Salvatore on the Vampire Diaries which involves a largely monochrome wardrobe. Truth be told, we just prefer him shirtless, but that’s just us.

Adele Scorches The Cover Of Vogue UK

Check out Adele‘s Vogue UK October cover! How smoldering does she look? She’s fully the sloe-eyed vixen in this shot!  It’s no secret that we love her here at the FABlife and could not be happier seeing this awesome woman taking on Vogue. We also love her interview inside because it sounds like vintage Adele — no holds barred!

The singer reveals her pre-show prep and it sounds pretty messy. “I puke quite a lot before going on stage“, she shares. “Though never actually on stage. But then, I sh—t myself before everything …The bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!”  That’s a pretty extreme case of nerves and not particularly healthy, so we hope she overcomes the stage fright.

We also like the fact that she takes the very dodgy question of diets head-on in a fashion magazine. It feels like she’s politely giving them a piece of her mind! Adele says, “I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life. I have [body] insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.” And you ask us why we adore this woman? Who wouldn’t?

Kellan Lutz’s GQ Spread Makes Us Drool

So we gave the guys a little something earlier to brighten up their Monday — Scarlett Johansson. It’s treat time for the ladies now and it sure is a delicious one. Kellan Lutz in GQ Australiathis month’s issue. ‘Nuff said. Oh wait, it’s not because have you seen how HOT he looks? Our eyes are literally glazing over, so bear with us!

Also, we totally love the fact that the writer calls him “resplendently rippled” in the piece, which not only made us laugh hysterically, but has now become our favorite descriptive phrase ever. And here’s the perfect follow-up to that, “Lutz looks like a guy sent from some super-race of humanity to kick your arse.” But hey, don’t mind us. There’s 10 pictures of resplendently rippled Lutz waiting to be viewed so knock yourself out. Here’s the link, so click, pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!

Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys And Demi Moore Cover Glamour For October

What a cover! Glamour Magazine’s October issue has Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys taking the reins in super-hot shots and a great interview to boot. The trio collaborated to help launch Five, a series of films about women and breast cancer set to air on Lifetime on October 10. Each of the three women have directed one segment each.

While the interview deals with their ideas about their short films (Jennifer’s is called Mia), it also delves into other subjects. Like why Jennifer has been wearing the same bikini for years! She explained, “And I’ll wear it for as many years as the strings still tie! Bathing suits now have so much hardware on them that they singe your skin. When you take your bikini off, it looks like you’ve been branded with crop circles and lightning bolts and words like Gucci!”

Demi — her film is called Charlotte — talks about her Twitter usage and her reasons for it, saying, “Originally, Ash and I were just playing, seeing what it did and what it meant… I saw Twitter as this opportunity to connect with people and actually show a side of myself that is much lighter. And all of a sudden people were getting to know me, and I was connecting with people. At its core Twitter is about sharing, and I think that in life we never feel better or more energized than when we’re giving to someone else.”

Alicia (her segment’s called Lili) talks about her family — son Egypt and husband Swizz Beatz and what a connected little unit they are. She revealed, “We’re such a bonded happy family, and I hope that we’ll always be able to be that. For me, the most important thing is that we always take the time to understand each other and grow together. We’re all going to change. Otherwise, it’s boring. Who wants to stay the damn same all their life?” Read the interview here for more insights on these three gorgeous women. We love that they’ve been styled so naturally too!

Anne Hathway Covers Interview Magazine, Talks Affinity To Snooki And JWoww!

Okay, the September cover of Interview Magazine with Anne Hathaway is drop dead gorgeous. It reminds us of the Kate Moss 2008 Interview cover which is admittedly more feline. But hey, Anne is Catwoman and we feel this cover is a more couture nod to that role. But apart from our sartorial thumbs-up, we truly appreciate Chelsea Handler‘s interview with Anne, which only made us love the actress more.

We find out that the actress is, in fact, a Jersey Girl, which obviously leads to a full discussion about her love for that seminal show — Jersey Shore. And her similarities with Snooki and JWoww. Anne reveals, “… I like to watch MTV for escapist pleasure, but when I saw Snooki, I saw my twin. I couldn’t lose myself in the show anymore because there I was… That being said, I think JWoww is amazing. I love JWoww. She’s intense. See, JWoww to me is proper Jersey because she will scrap for a friend.”  Because, and you and I did not know this about Anne, but she can get pretty scrappy herself.

She explained this pugilist side with, “My best friend got married this past weekend in Barcelona, and I was one of her bridesmaids. She’s one of my best friends from Jersey, and this guy was messing with her, and I was totally like, “Who am I punching?” She was like, “No one. You’re not going to punch anyone. And I was like, “Fair enough, but if a fight breaks out, who do you want me to swing at?”

We want to be besties with Anne now and vacation with her Positano too.

Salma Hayek Gets Super Sexy For Allure

These photographs of Salma Hayek from Allure‘s September issue are bound to get temperature’s rising. The interview itself rocks with the actress addressing different questions about her body for instance. When asked what part of her body looked better a decade ago — she’s 44 — the answer was a humorous one. One which men across the planet will disagree with, as she replied, “My boobs. They’re not bad, by the way. I’m not complaining about them.” As she shouldn’t.

She also added, “As a woman, you should be more at ease with your sexuality when you are in your 40s. You are more self-assured about that part. And that’s the way it should be. If you are a girl who cannot walk in heels, it doesn’t matter how beautiful you are. If you look like a chicken that’s been spiked in the feet, it’s not going to be sexy.” Salma would know, right? We love the shoot and the sexy, touseled Brigitte Bardot vibe she’s channeling. Or Sophia Loren, considering these could be scenes from an arty Italian film. Does anyone else also see the similarities with Monica Bellucci?

Which Jennifer Lopez Ex Plans To Take It All Off For Playgirl?

It ain’t Diddy, or that dancer dude, or Jennifer Lopez‘s most recent — Marc Anthony. This gold-digging ex Ojani Noa! Remember the J.Lo “honeymoon tape”? Considering that little tidy stash o’ cash was denied after Jennifer blocked the sale of the video, you know he’s been looking for another avenue. And he’s found one. Or, it found him?

Ojani and Playgirl are inking a deal for him to make an appearance in the magazine. Let’s be clear — it’s going to be all of him! TMZ reports that deal will only go through if he agrees to do full-frontal shots. Which he doesn’t mind at all considering he told the site, “If the money is right, especially for full nude, then I would be flattered to pose for Playgirl.” Of course he would. There’s a price for everything, right?

Jane Fonda Is Way Hotter Than You, You And You

We couldn’t stop gawping at Jane Fonda in Harper’s Bazaar. She’s “73 and a half” years old, guys, and looks better than most people a good five decades younger. And if that dress looks familiar, it’s the same dotty Stella McCartney number Kate Winslet wore to the Mildred Pierce premiere a while ago.  And even though we love us some Kate, we think that Jane is working it way better than she is. The sideboob isn’t putting us off either, and sideboob almost always puts us off.

She gives a great interview too especially about her personal life (she’s dating music producer Richard Perry), saying, “When I was researching myself, I wondered, is there a ‘there’ there? Or am I just a hollow person who gets filled up by whatever man I’m with? I’m fine with women. My problem is always with men — you know, pleasing a man, turning myself into a pretzel to be who the man I’m with wants me to be. I’m not saying that that’s gone away 100 percent, but maybe 90 percent, 95 percent even.” The research is for her new book Prime Time, FYI, and it was also for her memoir My Life So Far. Read the interview, people. It made us want to say Amen! at every quote. And we really can’t get over how terrific she looks. It would take more than a couple of Valium for us to get into that dress.

Lea Michele Talks Ambition, Love For Gwyneth Paltrow, In Harper’s Bazaar

She want’s it all! Lea Michele covers the September edition of Harper’s Bazaar, but we far prefer this shot in the more dramatic photoshoot inside. And for someone so little (“I’m five foot three. I don’t look like a lot of other people, you know what I mean? I look like I’m 12″), she’s got big ambitions! Lea told the magazine, “I don’t stop. “It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. I want to do Evita. I want to do Sweeney Todd with [Glee costar] Chris Colfer. We want to do Wicked. I’ll be Elphaba and he wants to play ‘Guy-linda.’ I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”

She also makes some particularly surprising confessions concerning who she fangirls over. “I am obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow” she reveals adding, ” I was nervous and said, ‘I don’t think I can do that dance move.’ She said, ‘You can do it.’ She wasn’t afraid of anything. I love talking with Gwyneth. She just gives good advice. She said, ‘Don’t ever read anything about you’.” The interview goes on more about what she thinks of her looks, her boyfriends and how she auditioned for Glee. And the funny thing is, we may not have been big fans of Lea before this, but this interview kinda changed our minds! We’d chill with her at Le Pain Quotidient (read the interview, guys) any time.
