Are we going to see any covers that don’t have Emma Stone on them in the next few months? Because she’s just everywhere lately. Not that we’re complainingg. We love her and her sartorial sense so much that we compiled an entire of all Emma’s looks from The Amazing Spider-Man premieres across the globe. She’s also clearly become Vogue‘s darling. Emma was featured, looking stunningly sexy and wide-eyed on the July cover of the U.S edition of the magazine wearing a coffee colored Nina Ricci dress with black lace accents. Ms. Stone’s eyes are amazing, as well — a pale, clear jade. Which have now been turned into a aqua for her latest Vogue U.K August cover. She’s now literally their blue-eyed girl. Contacts, or Photoshop? It’s an edgy cover shot by the legendary Patrick Demarchelier. We love the black Max Mara newsboy cap lowered seductively over the eyes, and it goes perfectly with the black-and-white houndstooth jumper, also by the brand. The interview has been conducted by Brit style maven Alexa Chung and according to the mag, Emma’s discussing, “sex scenes, suffering from anxiety and the problems with fame.” The inside spread is pretty spectacular too — we’re loving the slightly retro tone and is that a quote by Taylor Swift we see in the last scan?

Emma Stone Stuns Us With Her Vogue, New York Mag Covers, Affection For Jim Carrey
It’s probably no surprise that Emma Stone looks like a beautiful porcelain-skinned angel on the covers of both Vogue and New York Magazine this week. The woman is a living, breathing Precious Moments doll. Except hot. What is a surprise, however, is how gracious the actress has been about that bizarro Jim Carrey fan video he made in her honor last summer. You know, the one where Jim Carrey fantasizes about making fat, freckly babies with a famous actress who is literally younger than his daughter? Somehow…Emma still thinks of him fondly?
“Right before that video came out, we were at the MTV Movie Awards. Jason Sudeikis hosted,” Stone tells New York Mag. “There was like five of us, and we just went on this tangent of talking nice behind Jim Carrey’s back. Jason was talking about how great [Carrey] was when he went to Saturday Night Live and how he was just like a comedic genius. Everyone was kind of weighing in, like ‘He’s the best. He’s amazing.’ And so when that happened, we all kind of talked to each other like, ‘Weird, that was the guy we were lauding for, like, 30 minutes.'” Hmmm, weird, haunting, upsetting, deeply inappropriate…give us a second to get on Thesaurus.com and we could go on for hours!
I may rag on Tyra Banks sometimes, but whatever I say about her “smizing“, I do have a certain respect for the fact that she’s so outspoken and does whatever the hell she wants to on TV. C’mon, remember her “Fa-Fa-Fa-Fashion” with Andre Leon Talley? Can I admit that actually miss those videos? But we’re digressing, because the point that we’re trying to make here is that Tyra can become a great spokesperson for touchy issues because she’s unafraid to speak up. We really appreciated her open letter in The Daily Beast that was written in support of Vogue‘s decision to finally commit to healthier conditions for their models by banning the use of anorexic images and therefore, anorexic models, in the magazine. They’ve also committed to not using underage girls — this means under the age of 16. It’s a small step, but it’s in the right direction.
Tyra, in her letter, admits that, “… the truth is that if I was just starting to model at age 17 in 2012, I could not have had the career that I did. I would’ve been considered too heavy. In my time, the average model’s size was a four or six. Today you are expected to be a size zero. When I started out, I didn’t know such a size even existed.” It can’t be easy to write the words “considered too heavy” for all the world to see, and we respect the fact that she’s gone there. Tyra’s piece basically deals with her optimistic view on this ban, taking her personal history in the modelling world into account. She reveals her own battle with body image, saying, “In my early 20s I was a size four. But then I started to get curvy. My agency gave my mom a list of designers that didn’t want to book me in their fashion shows anymore. In order to continue working, I would’ve had to fight Mother Nature and get used to depriving myself of nutrition.” It’s that vein of thought that has made the industry so unhealthy today.
Luckily, she writes, her mom was her guardian angel in that respect, adding, “As my mom wiped the tears from my face, she said, “Tyra, you know what we’re going to do about this? We’re going to go eat pizza.” We sat in a tiny pizzeria in Milan and strategized about how to turn my curves into a curveball…” Read the letter. It reminded us that we kinda love Tyra!

We had two thoughts when we first saw Gisele Bundchen’s fantastic cover for the June/July issue of Vogue Paris: 1) Damn, we really need to get in shape for summer, and 2) whatever happened to the Coppertone Girl? Of course that was once our minds regained the power of words after processing Mrs. Tom Brady’s fantastic-yet-sandy backside. Imagine the effort that went into that sand placement. There’s no way Vogue would leave that to chance. They probably added each grain piece of piece until they had it exactly to their specifications. It’s like the sexiest mosaic that the world has ever known. The fact that we didn’t even realize she was topless really speaks to the mystical power of Gisele’s booty. We love how she stares down the camera with a look that definitely says, “Yes, I’m covered in sand, but my bottom mustn’t be disturbed.” Who knows what other pix can be found under the cover? We’ll have to wait a few more weeks until the mag hits the streets to find out!

We’re hoping you went through our extensive Met Gala coverage yesterday. If you did, then two things will start occurring to you as we delve into this deliciously dissing post. The first was this: Someone as hot as Kate Upton had to pay her way to get into the Met event, offering up a check of $25,000 to Vogue Editrix and Gala chairperson Anna Wintour. The second point that should also be hitting you is … where was Kim Kardashian? This may seem disconnected from the first train of thought, but it’s not, because Kim is everywhere, all the time, so her absence at this A-list to beat all A-list events in surprising. Besides, if Kate Upton could buy her way in, you know that Kim would’ve tried. This is the Oscars of Fashion after all. And Kimmy’s boyfriend, Kanye West, was attending as well.
Sadly, her dreams of attending future Met Galas have been shattered thanks to this bit of gossip unearthed by RadarOnline. According to sources in the know, Kim will never be allowed to step foot into the event because, “Anna hates Kim. Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.” Burn! And no, Kim can’t pull a Kate Upton and throw down some cash. The source added, “The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in. Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!”
Kim must’ve known about this edict, because there is no way in hell that she didn’t send out feelers months before the event. Being frosted out may be a horrible thing, but the Kardashians aren’t anything if not krafty. To show that she was far too busy to attend the bash anyway, Kim made sure she was photographed all over L.A. running errands. “Kim and her camp will deny that she wasn’t invited by saying that she had business in L.A., but that is a lie. She would have done anything to be there with all the A-listers, ” the chatty source clarifies. Do note that when Anna Wintour nixes you, you’re nixed for good, so the Kimster shouldn’t even hope for any Vogue coverage, as the sources shoved in the final nail in KK’s coffin, saying, “Anna Wintour would allow Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue over her dead body. As long as Anna in charge you will NOT see Kim on Vogue.” D.E.N.I.E.D!

Looks like someone is trying to give Angelina Jolie’s Oscar leg-show a run for its money. And if there’s anyone who’s capable of that, it really is Charlize Theron. The actress and her ridiculously toned gams are on the May cover of Vogue, wearing a lovely icy-blue Versace gown, we might add. Her hair is a little on the matronly side, but we’ll let go of the nitpicking, for now. As we expected (and hoped for), the interview does delve into Charlize being a new mom to adopted baby, Jackson, who she says “is the coolest kid ever.”
She talks about what kind of mother she wants to be and is looking close to home for inspiration, revealing she wants “to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.” Speaking of mothers, she does joke about her reasons for starting a family, adding, “I don’t think my mom could wait any more!” We’re going to have to wait for the magazine to hear more, but until then, the cover suits us just fine.

We love how hot Jennifer Lopez looks on the cover of the new Vogue Shape issue, but you know who probably loves it more? JLo herself. “He always told me what a beautiful voice I have,” the American Idol judge gushes about ex Marc Anthony. “He was like, ‘It’s in there; you just gotta let it out. It’s a confidence thing with you.’ Then all of a sudden one day I was like, I’m good at this!” Just in case Jenny forgot her own awesomeness for even a second, she also sports a massive diamond ring that spells out the words I Love Me. “That may sound conceited, but it’s not. If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love anybody else,” Lopez exclaims. “And I think as women we really forget that.” We aren’t even going to pretend we don’t looooove that she wears that. Or that we would expect anything less of her.
We find it no surprise then that JLo attracts, in the words of her manager Benny Medina, “obsessive men,” ostensibly like current boyfriend Casper Smart. Why wouldn’t they be obsessed? Are they made of hunky stone? “The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone,” Medina sighs, “instead of having nearly obsessive guys pursue her. The ease with which that obsession becomes a relationship I think sometimes works against her ability to have a real meaningful relationship.” Gushes Lopez about Smart, “He’s adorable. But you already see that. He really is [sweet]. He’s a good egg.” Just wait until she gives you the diamond I Love JLo ring, Casper. That’s how you know you’re in!
Sienna Miller wants to talk about her impending baby times with alleged fiance Tom Sturridge. It’s just that doing so might have devastating consequences. We guess? “I’m in my second trimester, so I’m I-can-talk-about-it pregnant,” the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra star told British Vogue in their April issue. “Even though I’m under strict instructions not to say anything as it would completely defeat the point of everything I’ve tried to achieve in the last eight years.” Wow, what could Sienna possibly say about her fetus that would completely destroy her life all the way back to 2004? Is she actually pregnant with government secrets? Or some kind of adorable baby time machine?
Of course, we completely understand if Sienna wants to keep the more intimate details to herself; being among the numerous celebrities whose phones were hacked by the now-defunct U.K. tabloid New Of The World would make anyone reticent to let the media into their lives. So what can Miller say about her baby that wouldn’t put everything dear to her at risk? “I’m feeling fine,” the actress laughs. “It’s all progressing nicely and it’s very exciting.” Oh no, the world as we know it is being ripped asunder! Quickly, Sienna! To the adorable baby time machine!

Kristen Wiig‘s Vogue profile is basically a mushy love letter from every single person she knows. As it should be! “I don’t know if anyone ever showed up better equipped for the show than Kristen did,” SNL head writer Seth Meyers gushes. “She was immediately great at it, and it’s a very hard job to be great at. Her characters were broad but built out of incredibly subtle observations.” Sean Penn, Wiig’s costar in the upcoming film The Comedian, might have them all beat in the compliment department, though. “I don’t go to a dinner party where people don’t refer to her as a genius,” he claims. “She’s a writer, she can invent characters and stories, and she has a touch that translates. It’s her game to play.” Man, if only the Target lady could see Kristen now. You know she would approve.
As with most famous ladies, fame brings with it fashion, and in the article Wiig praises Alexander McQueen, Nina Ricci and Isabel Marant as her favorite couture. “I always say I want to look haunted.” the Bridesmaids star said of her Golden Globes Bill Blass frock. The only flaw we could find in the profile? The writer describing Kristen as “the face to watch in female comedy.” How about the face to watch…winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay? The face to watch…killing it on your TV every week? The face…who looks great despite what said face’s owner thinks? “I’m going to need a lot of under-eye work,” Wiig joked about hitting the red carpet. “Concealer.”
Adele’s Vogue cover is so dreamy, what with her amazing cleavage and gigantic eyelashes, that we’re going to ignore the obvious Photoshop nip tuck they gave her torso. Seriously, who do they think they’re fooling? We know what Adele’s arms look like: ours. We’re also going to ignore the singer’s promise never to write a break-up song again, but only because the idea fills us with despair. “No one’s got to be brave. It’s not like, ‘You f— me over and I’m going to write a record and make you the most hated man in the world,'” the singer jokes in her interview regarding potential gentlemen callers. “I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I’m done with being a bitter witch.” Noooo! Don’t make us put on “Someone Like You” and cry about how there will never be another “Someone Like You.” It’s just too meta!
Her interview also indicates that Adele’s throat surgery was a blessing in disguise, and not just for the singer’s physical well-being. “I think if I hadn’t had my voice trouble, I would never have broached those subjects with myself,” the Grammy Award-winner tells Vogue. “Now I just feel really at peace…In fact, my entire life has changed in the last ten says. I’ve never been so happy, and I love it.” Okay, but no one let Taylor Swift know about the perks of throat surgery! Some of our favorite performers need to stay bummed out so we can get our cry on!
