Celeb mag confessions: dating, ditching Hollywood, taking back their abusive boyfriends ...
UK Marie Claire, March 2013
Is Megan Fox quitting Hollywood? She Tells UK Marie Claire she’s so psyched by being a mum – son Noah was born in September – she’s thinking about making a career of it. She admits she’s finding it really hard to juggle acting with motherhood: “It’s very hard for me to do this stuff because I feel like this isn’t my job anymore. My job is to be with him. “All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can.”
Glamour magazine, March 2013
Former child star Dakota Fanning is looking all grown up in this shoot for Glamour magazine. But she admits she’s shy about dating because she’s too young. “Even when I was 14, I was like, “I’m not gonna marry this person. What’s the point of doing it?” It’s not me being naive. I just know what it’s supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered.”
Vanity Fair, March 2013
Emma Stone gets into bed with Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper for the latest cover of Vanity Fair. I have no idea why Ben is wearing a bear suit, and Bradley is wearing a gorilla costume … but I like it! Inside, a parade of Hollywood stars dress up in a circus-themed extravaganza. Lainey Gossip grouches: “If the Hollywood Issue is a reflection of Hollywood, well, isn’t this actually a pretty accurate reflection of Hollywood? Hollywood is white and no women over 40 are allowed.”
Jalouse, March 2013
Miranda Kerr has posed in an amazing '60s-inspired fashion shoot for French fashion magazine Jalouse, including what seems to have become the ubiquitous topless shot.
Rolling Stone, March 2013
Rihanna has opened up to Rolling Stone about taking Chris Brown back: “It’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s–t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.” She insists she won’t tolerate more abuse. “He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
US Cosmopolitan, March 2013
Why don’t female celebs wear clothes on magazine covers anymore? Miley Cyrus appears on the latest US Cosmopolitan magazine without her top. In the interview she raves about her fiance, Aussie hunk Liam Hemsworth.
“I’ll literally look at him and [will] be like ‘You are hot, dear god!’ The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool. I was like, ‘I’m gonna faint – the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.’ So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’ That’s my hubby!”
GQ, February 2013
Well if anyone can make red leopard undies, body jewellery, an athletic top and under-boob look good it has to be Beyonce. She's on the cover of GQ who have crowned her the "Sexiest Woman of the 21st Century." Sigh.
Harper's Bazaar Australia, February 2013
Former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins channels a Grecian goddess look on the cover of Australia's Harper's Bazaar' magazine. As the cover's caption 'Jennifer Hawkins: Body Corporate' suggests, it's all about flaunting that sexy body for Jen as she appears topless with a white feather maxi skirt.
Vogue Australia, February 2013
It is all about 'fashion in full bloom' as award winning actress Naomi Watts poses against a wall of flowers on the newest cover of 'Vogue Australia'.
Naomi's accompanying interview reveals all on her latest project, 'The Impossible', a movie about the 2004 tsunami. She says "The pressure of The Impossible was huge because it is such a sensitive subject and needs to be told with a lot of truth."
The actress also speaks about her upcoming role involving portraying Princess Diana.
ELLE US, January
The 44-year-old spoke candidly to Elle Magazine about her looks: "I am not going to lie about this. There are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold. Or suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, 'Who is that?'."
Interestingly, the pop singer (rumoured to be a fan of Botox) went on to say she has never resorted to plastic surgery, but wouldn't rule it out in the future.
She says: "I am not against surgery, I haven’t gone down that route yet, I don’t know whether I will but I am not against it. The only time it isn’t amazing is when it’s not done well or someone takes it too far."
Interview Russia, December
Two of the biggest superstars in the modelling world, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, have reunited - uh, topless - on the cover of Interview Russia. That's what friends do, right? The corresponding photo shoot sees them a little more covered up in designer gowns, huge hats and layers of false eyelashes. This is the second time the pair have graced a magazine cover together - the first was for Vogue Paris' 2008 'Bad Girls' issue.
British GQ, January
Lawless star Jessica Chastain has appeared on the cover of British GQ this month. And while she looks sensational in the accompanying photoshoot, Chastain told the magazine that she struggled to get a date during her early teenage years. "When someone tells me I’m a sex symbol I’m like, "what?". But I’ll take what I can get. That’ll teach all those boys back in Juinor High! In fact, I hope my very first boyfriend, the guy I dated for one month and who broke up with me at the Valentine’s Day Dance – I hope that boy reads this article.'
Vogue Paris, December/January
Former First Lady of France, Carla Bruni, revisits her modelling roots on the cover of Vogue Paris' December/January issue, sporting simple, chic hair and makeup. However, her input doesn't stop there - she also guest edited the issue and worked with Italian chef Massimo Mori on a “luxe risotto” recipe published inside. Talk about multi-tasking.
East West magazine, issue 37
Tyra Banks looks futuristic and fabulous on the cover of Asia's East West magazine. The accompanying photo shoot features eye-catching fashions that would put Lady Gaga's wardrobe to shame, including face masks, spiked heels and killer nails.
December, Vanity Fair
Supermodel Kate Moss is looking sultry on the latest cover of Vanity Fair. She spoke to the magazine about her relationship with ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp. “There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said… like if I said, ‘What did I do?,’ he’d tell me. And that’s what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!”
Homegrown supermodel Miranda Kerr shows off her incredible body in this sexy photo shoot for American magazine Esquire's December issue. Wearing nothing but some lacy briefs and a fur stole, Miranda says her "flirtatious temperament" makes photo shoots like Esquire's and those she does for Victoria's Secret "second nature."
Flaunt Magazine November
Well, we've never seen Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester quite like this before. The actress, who plays Blair on the hit show, is pictured cavorting with two naked men on the cover of Flaunt's November issue. Clad in leather, leopard print and sky-high stilettos, we think Chuck Bass would approve of this look.
Elle Canada December
This cover is a preview of Elle Canada's December issue - but we hope they don't change a thing for the final edition, because how pretty does Taylor Swift look? The singer looks divine in a sparkly Zuhair Murad gown.
Elle France November
Victoria Beckham, style icon. The singer turned fashion designer wears a dress of her own design on the Elle France cover, which was photographed by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. In the accompanying interview, Victoria reveals that she doesn't care if daughter Harper grows up a tomboy, but she'll be bequething her a very impressive Hermes bag collection regardless. We don't think Harper's siblings, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 9, and Cruz, 6, will mind.
Vogue Australia December
Record breaking race horse Black Caviar covers Australia's Vogue cover for the December issue.
It is the first time in its 53 year history that the fashion magazine will be showcasing a horse on its cover.
Joining the mare is Sydney model Julia Nobis wearing an Alexander McQueen frock.
Black Caviar's part owner Jill Taylor says, "She's ours on paper but she's Australia's horse".
In her editor's letter, Vogue editor-in-chief Edwina McCann says “Black Caviar certainly knows when the lens is focused on her, and it’s terrific to celebrate her beauty, rather than just her speed.”
Lucky - December
'Lucky' magazine's latest cover has got heads turning with Britney Spears high up on the 'fakeness radar' with a blonde wig!
Heavily photoshopped shots and a suspiciously low hairline on Britney Spears is the perfect recipe for intense public backlash.
So the magazine took to its Twitter page to apologise saying "Thank you for all sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we're sorry to have let some of you down.'
Jalouse - November
If anyone can pull off a sheer polkadot raincoat, it's Kate Moss.
The British model poses for the November cover of 'Jalouse' magazine, sporting a Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama raincoat.
Moss gets in touch with her sexy side, with a photo spread for the magazine set amongst the wilderness of the jungle.
Celine Dion bares all in this racy photoshoot for V Magazine.
The 44 year old singer invited photographer photographer Sebastian Fiena into her home in Florida, and did not hesitate to flaunt her sexy body with some sizzling topless shots!
Harper's Bazaar - November
Nicole Kidman opens up about her past and present relationships with Tom Cruise and Keith Urban as well as her "little belly" in an interview for the November edition of US Harper's Bazaar.
From Harper's Bazaar:
On being married to Cruise: “In those early years, it was like, ‘I’m here and I’m clutching onto your arm, and it all feels a little overwhelming and really strange. And I was shy. Deeply shy. I didn’t feel comfortable at all.”
On her husband of six years, Urban: “He just gave me confidence through just being very kind to me and understanding me, opening me up to trying things, my sexuality, those sorts of things.”
On body image: “I’ve always had a little belly. I mean, now that I’m 45, they don’t say, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant!’ as much. But I’ve got skinny arms and legs, and then I’ve got a little belly.”
Esquire - November
Mila Kunis has been crowned as the "Sexiest Woman Alive" by Esquire, and appeared on the cover of the magazine this month for the November issue. But Kunis isn't likely to take the title too seriously, saying, "I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn't make them proud."
Tatler - November
Tatler received the royal treatment this month when Prince Harry graced the cover of the mag as their "Man of the Year". Rumour has it that Dirty Harry's baby blues were photoshopped to more closely match the colour of his cornflower blue cap - but it's hard to care, given that it's still one of the less outrageous photo scandals he will have been involved in this year.
Elle China - October
The most interesting cover this month undoubedlty comes from Elle China, for their 24th anniversary issue. What represents the world of high fashion and magazines best? Why, a horse of course. Model Liu Wen posed with a horse for the cover, wearing Givenchy boots. Although the cover is perhaps not as strange as it sounds - that horse's coat is very glossy, after all.
Vogue UK - November
Jennifer Lawrence has appeared on the cover of Vogue UK, looking absolutely ravishing in a detailed black-and-white bodycon dress. This is her first ever Vogue cover - though judging from how fabulous she looks, we'd be surprised if it were her last.
Apparently her actor boyfriend Nicholas Hoult isn't overly concerned with what his girlfriend wears - or with fashion at all. Jennifer said in the magazine, "Oh, he really doesn't care ... Like he'll sometimes wear these white tennis shoes with jeans, then tuck his pants into his socks. He has absolutely no idea how good-looking he is. I think a lot of women and men hate me because of that."
Russh - October/November
Miranda Kerr graced the cover of Russh for their October/November "homegrown" issue, looking typically laidback and laconic in true Aussie fashion.
"Our homegrown issue is a celebration of our world beyond Vegemite and other such clichés: a great Southern land rich with talent and the best of everything, a base that fosters a global mindset, an adventuring spirit and arms us with penchant for being 'on roam.' [Miranda] grew up in the farming town of Gunnedah. A place where fun was had on horseback or at the local tennis courts and anything worth celebrating was done so with a sausage sizzle".
Miranda's adorable son Flynn also makes a cameo in the fashion spread inside the magazine. Homegrown, indeed.
Elle US - October
Pop star and upcoming judge on the new season of “The X Factor", Britney Spears, covers the October issue of Elle US in Versace. Spears is definitely beautiful but we think she may be the victim of an over zealous retoucher on this one!
Marie Claire US - October
Life never goes exactly as you plan it, even if you're Gwen Stefani. The No Doubt frontwoman tells Marie Claire that she "really, really" wanted another sibling for sons Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4. Though she doesn't go into details about her decision, Stefani, 42, says she and husband Gavin Rossdale have since made peace with having just two kids.
"I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn't really work out," Stefani tells the magazine. "So. . . I feel good with what we've got. Everything works out how it should. You can't plan anything, right? You can try."
British Vogue - October
"Shooting with her was wonderful because she absolutely loved the clothes," said British Vogue's fashion director Lucinda Chambers, who shot Twilight actress, Kristen Stewart with photographer Mario Testino for the October issue.
Vanity Fair - October
Between Tom Cruise’s divorce from Nicole Kidman and his marriage to Katie Holmes, Scientology went all out to find its superstar a suitable mate - reports Vanity Fair.
Vogue Hommes - October

Vogue Australia - October
Lana Del Ray is stunning on the cover of Vogue Australia's October edition.
Numéro Tokyo - October
Based on this cover, we're going to say lace and floppy hats are going to be huge this spring. Trendsetter Alexa Chung wears Valentino on the October cover of Numéro Tokyo.
Instyle Australia - October
With newlywed Blake Lively (who just married Ryan Reynolds) gracing the cover of Instyle's October issue, you'd have to think the magazine's editor, Kerrie McCallum, would be pretty happy with that timing!
Marie Claire - October
Who would have thought with all of her sucess that this is the first time Miranda Kerr has covered the Australian edition of Marie Claire? She's wearing a Dolce & Gabbana embroidered peplum bodysuit from their autumn collection.
Vogue Brazil - September
Model Caroline Trentini poses on the September cover of Vogue Brazil wearing the same dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s autumn collection that Miranda Kerr wears on the latest edition of Australian Marie Claire.

Elle France - September

V Magazine (Travel issue) - September

Vogue UK - September
Karlie Kloss for British Vogue revealed that fellow model Coco Rocha was her model mentor when she started out in the industry and that a potential new design venture could be on the cards in the near future.
Vogue Australia - September 2012
"It’s time for a wardrobe shakeup. As decreed by Mrs Prada herself, toss out those skirts and bring out the pants as pictured in our bold Smarty Pants. No colour is too loud, no shape too absurd as seen in The Big Picture, while there’s a virtue in uniqueness as seen in View from the Top. And, of course, it’s all about prettiness and femininity for the beautiful Bella Heathcote in Ciao, Bella."
Dazed & Confused - September 2012
Azealia Banks on the cover of Dazed & Confused. This issue has been banned in at least seven countries, including Singapore, Malta, Switzerland, India, Thailand and Dubai.
