Magazine Round-Up! The August 2013 Issues


vogue cover (3)

Despite who one magazine chose to put on their latest covers, the August issues were pretty good this year, and a great pre-cursor to the big September issues.

The biggest of them all is usually Vogue, who has Claire Danes as their coverstar for August. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, she is joined by her ‘Homeland’ co-star Damien Lewis in a slick, spy themed editorial. This is the first time that Danes have covered the mag since 1998.


Supermodel Kate Moss lands the cover of Allure, shot by Mario Testino. In the mag Moss talks about the anorexia rumors that plagued her during the start of her career, saying “The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s ridiculous. I know I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged….’ But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody’s illness. I wasn’t anorexic.” On a lighter note, she reveals that her 10-year old daughter Lila loves the movie ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ and regularly quotes Emily Blunt‘s assistant character, “Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office. Can you hold? Patrick Demarchelier on the line!‘”

Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston looks sharp among some destroyed cars in L.A. for GQ, shot by Nathaniel Goldberg. Though his hit AMC drama will be coming to an end after it’s 6th season, which starts on August 11, Cranston will be moving on to even bigger things, like a remake of ‘Godzilla’ set to be released next year.


Also, can you believe this guy is 57?


Another 50-something and still fine man, The Purple One was photographed by the team of Inez van Lamsweerde & Ninoodh Matadin for V magazine’s Fall preview issue.  His new band, 3rdEyeGirl, are also featured in the spread, where they are all decked out in Balmain and Saint Laurent, though Prince wears his own clothes plus a little Jason Wu.


Amanda Seyfried, who stars in the upcoming ‘Lovelace,’ talks sex for ELLE by Carter Smith.


Nicki Minaj gets glam for Marie Claire.

The always cheeky Sophia Vergara for Harper’s Bazaar, by who else but Creepy Uncle Terry Richardson. (Ew.)


Rosie Huntington-Whitely and the uh, boys, of One Direction for Glamour. Didn’t this magazine used to be for grown women? Where’s her man, Jason Statham?

Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta for Ebony. Curiously, some cheating rumors came out the day after the release of this issue. But they’re still a beautiful couple.

Which magazine will YOU be picking up?

December Cover Girls: Selena, Taylor & Gabby

An actress, a singer and an athlete are gracing the December covers of Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Essence respectively.


Selena Gomez, star of “Wizards of Waverly Place” is also a singer and now Glamour Woman of the Year. Red balloons are a fantastic frame for the 20 year old brunette who will appear in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. Wearing a cream Zac Posen dress she dishes about charity work with UNICEF, best friend Taylor Swift and on dealing with the Belieber fan base.

Cosmopolitan is the latest magazine to contribute to my Taylor Swift fatigue. Is there anything left  for her to say? For the two of you still interested, SURPRISE, the pop country singer talks about romantic relationships and her desire to have a passel of kids. So grateful my tween is indifferent to her, don’t think I could stomach helping to fund her empire!


Moving on, last but not least we have Olympian Gabby Douglas on the cover of Essence. Of course she is wearing one of her gold medals but even the additional gold of an enormous sash and bow cannot compete with her mega watt smile. The 17 year old gymnast opens up about what life has been like after her triumphant London Games.

Glamour is currently available to download.

All three magazines will be on newsstands November 6.
