The picture on the right is Blake Lively for Madison Magazine’s upcoming July issue. The picture on the left is Blake covering Vogue Magazine in June last year. Madison mag basically lifted the same hair, the same expression and the same outfit except the color of the top and a few little changes here and there.
Since the Vogue cover was last year, we’re guessing they thought that nobody would notice the difference. Guess again! We were looking at the picture and couldn’t help thinking we had seen it somewhere else. And since Blake is Anna Wintour‘s pet, we guessed correctly that it was on Vogue. Madison is a magazine for Australia, FYI, and all we can say to them is — BUSTED! What do you guys have to say about this?

Now this is a cover. Trust the Italians to get it right! Beyonce on the L’Uomo Vogue July cover looks more sexy than we’ve ever seen her. We’re particular fans of androgyny when it’s done well and we can’t fault the lighting, making or wardrobe in this shot. Her jacket, shirt and bowtie are all by Dior Homme and the shoes are Tom Ford who put the ‘mmm‘ in menswear. July’s issue is a dual cover so Beyonce’s on with Novak Djokovic (the tennis player). Unfortunately he doesn’t stand a chance against this picture of Bey’s.
We’d like to see the singer channel such a strong look more often. Not that she doesn’t already, but most of her looks now seem to involve very little clothing or most of her sternum exposed. She doesn’t need to — all she’s showing off here is some leg and that’s more than enough.

This new shot of Angelina Jolie for Louis Vuitton‘s Core Values campaign blew us away. Shot in Siem Reap, Cambodia by uber photographer Annie Leibovitz, this is Angelina as she should be. Out in the open (in this case, a boat), wearing her own clothes and looking completely gorgeous. That’s also her own monogrammed LV Alto bag that’s not in production anymore. The actress has been attached to the country ever since she shot Lara Croft there in 2000 and her son Maddox was adopted from Cambodia. Four of her kids were at the shoot as well, and apparently, Leibovitz had to make them scram out of her shots plenty of times! Other Core Values celebrities include Sean Connery and Bono. What do you think of the shot? Doesn’t it look like a painting?

Adele is adorable and awesome; all you need to do is watch her interview with VH1 in which she calls fellow Brit Robert Pattinson a “national treasure” to know that. Our girl crush on her extended itself when we saw Adele on Glamour‘s July cover talking about one of our top three dream men — Prince Harry! (Ian Somerhalder and Jackson Rathbone round of the top three, in case you’re wondering.) Echoing our statements, she told the magazine, “I’m after Prince Harry. I know I said I wouldn’t go out with a ginger, but it’s Prince Harry! I’d be a real duchess then. I’d love a night out with him, he seems like a right laugh.” A “right laugh” being the tip of the iceberg, of course.
She also spoke about dating within the celebrity circuit and her opinion is now a part of our quotable quotes collection! We giggled when we saw what she said — “I’ve been on a few dates with celebrities but I don’t like it. You go out and everyone looks at you both. I’m not going to say who. We go to really established places that know how to keep their f—king mouths shut. But then, everyone wants to f—k a celebrity so I wouldn’t trust them.” In case you’re wondering who she would date, the field’s wide open, but she does have a couple of clauses. She explained, “I don’t have a type. Never have. Older, but not as in 50…Not younger than me. I’m pretty young so it would be like f—ing Justin Bieber! Any color. Any shape. But they’ve got to be funny.” Got that? Selena Gomez, rest easy! Having a potty-mouth would help too, we reckon.

Our other favorite vampire, Alexander Skarsgard covers Interview Magazine’s June issue. And not just anyone is interviewing him — Arcade Fire‘s lead singer Win Butler plays journalist for the day and asks the questions. Which is all well and good but holy s—t, Skarsgard looks just devastating on the cover! Team Eric all the way!
A lot of the conversation centers about his role on True Blood and he talks about not wanting to play the same stock character all the time. He explained, “I do get a lot of scripts sent to me where they basically want me to play Eric from ‘True Blood,’ but just a different name in a different movie. That’s not interesting to me. I don’t want to play a character that I’ve played for four years on a television show, change the name, and make him a zombie instead of a vampire.” We don’t care what he plays. As he long as he looks like that, and acts like that, we’re sold.

God bless Zach Galifianakis for always being up for anything. (Anything= Showing off his most private parts for the sake of comedy.) When he last hosted Saturday Night Live, he managed to show off some of his goods while lifting up his Little Orphan Annie dress, and now Galifianakis is in a photo spread for GQ where he’s nude in a bathtub and strategically covered by some live duckies. Galifianakis graces the cover of the magazine as well and is a little more clothed in the rest of the photo spread which you can see on the GQ site. We’re just partial to a man and his ducks though.
Mariah Carey can add herself to the list we created of celebrity baby bump flaunters. The pop diva appears on this week’s issue of Life & Style magazine covering one set of twins while exposing another. Carey says of her photo shoot, “I was feeling very vulnerable about taking pictures at all right now, but then I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to document this once-in-a-lifetime experience. My ultimate goal was to share this incredibly personal moment with my true fans.” Carey was photographed the night after she was released from the hospital with contractions—that’s a pretty dedicated, hardcore desire to share this with her fans! Carey is reportedly due to give birth to a boy and a girl at the end of April.

Mila Kunis looks stunning on the cover of the new issue of W Magazine. That Chanel tulle coat with feathers seems to be an arty nod to Black Swan. The photo spread inside is incredible with Mila looking so poised and elegant (check out our gallery below for the photographs). We throughly enjoyed reading the interview as well. When the interviewer asked her about dancing before and after Black Swan, she replied, “I had never danced in my life. I trained for four months, seven days a week, five hours a day. I had one day off on my birthday. I lost 20 pounds. I tore a ligament. I dislocated my shoulder. I have two scars on my back. And it was worth every minute.”
But does that mean she’s going to go through ballet boot camp ever again? The answer was a resounding no. She explained, ” But I will never dance again. I’m a strong believer in mind over matter, but I didn’t fully understand why that meant until this production. I was like, Well — I wear heels; I can do this. I was wrong: Christian Louboutins are uncomfortable, but I screamed the first time I put on a pointe shoe.” We don’t blame her for going right back to her Loubs. (Although we’re jealous that she has a closet full of Loubs to go back to.)
She also spoke about acting in Baywatch, not once but twice, as a kid, and pretty much reacted to it as most of us did: incredulity. Of her role, she had this to say, “The second time, I played a blind girl who’s lost in the forest next to the beach and needs to be saved. It was absurd: There’s a fire, I get saved, and then I go boogie-boarding. I remember thinking, Well, if I’m blind, how am I boogie-boarding? No one ever gave me an answer.” What? You mean David Hasselhoff couldn’t tell you why Baywatch was ridiculous? Now we’ve heard everything. [Photographs via W Magazine]
No offense, but why would Playgirl ask Rob Kardashian to pose for them? We’re flummoxed! Scratch that… why would Playgirl ask Rob to pose nekkid for them? We were hoping this was just a rumor but a rep for the magazine, Daniel Nardicio has confirmed the news, saying they’re willing to pay him $45,000 to strip off. Nardicio explained, “While most people assumed we’d be interested in Scott,Â my interest actually lies in the adorable Rob Kardashian.Â Rob is a perfect example of the classicÂ Playgirl model, and we’d be proud to have him join the ranks of other quasi celebs to strip forÂ Playgirl.”
We love the use of the term “quasi celeb” (hello, Levi Johsnton) but we’re not sure if he qualifies for that even. He’s kind of non-famous by association, showing up with the Kardashian sisters on red carpets once in a while. Right? How does that even qualify as “celeb”?
Playgirl‘s totally hellbent on getting him to pose and are even willing to invest in the buffing of his bod. Nardicio said, “I’d bring him to NYC to work with my trainer for a few weeks though, as he looks like he could use a few weeks prep before the shoot.Â If he can get wood, I’ll add another 15 thou!” Nice backhanded compliment, hah. You’re basically saying, we need to get him in shape because he’s not photograph-worthy yet, and we need to chill with airbrushing.
But considering they’re willing to fork out $60,000, do you think Rob will bite?
Stockings, garter belt, lacy bra and high heels all make for one very hot photo shoot. Minka Kelly poses for GQ this month and answers that one question everyone has been asking her. Is she or she not getting married to Derek Jeter? They’ve been throwing out dates for a while now so when’s the big date? Her only response was, ”I promise you, I’m not getting married in the next month.” That says a lot (not).
And what about that nasty airport scene? Minka apparently threw a fit because the crew on a Delta flight wouldn’t allow her to seat her dog next to her on the plane. A source wrote, “On delta flight 2863 from jfk to LAX right now and Minka Kelly caused such a f-ing scene about her dog not being able to be on seat w/ her that the pilot had to come out before we even left the gate. She called boyfriend Derek Jeter and handed phone to him to try and rationalize w/ the seven flight attendants it took to calm her down…”
That sounds like one intense flip out. Minka clarifies her stance in the interview explaining, “Do people think that somewhere in my brain, I think Derek can save me from someone telling me my dog can’t fly? If that’s the way I worked, he would have left me a long time ago.” Not a complete denial but when she’s looking like that, no one’s complaining.
