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?

Beyonce Shows Underboob and Belly on GQ Cover


Daaaayummm!  Take a good look at Beyonce`:  side-boob, zippered thong, sexy body chain and all on the latest cover of GQ Magazine.  Sure there’s some Photoshop going on, but you have to have something to work with in the first place, right?

It appears 2013 is going to a huge year for Mrs. Carter.  She’ll be performing at Barack Obama’s inauguration (singing The National Anthem) later this month as well as headlining the Super Bowl Halftimeand has her own HBO documentary airing in February.  (I’m exhausted just thinking about it all.)

Let’s all revel in the glory that IS Beyonce’s underboob. (Why are Americans so prudish? It’s like the underboob is still unchartered territory and nearly taboo. Honestly.)   Nevertheless.  Bey looks incredible.


GQ’s LEAST Influential People Of The Year – Brittani’s Thoughts


Post Halloween, I don’t really care for the holidays and all the supposed cheer it brings. I especially loathe all of the year end lists, but GQ put together one that I think we can all appreciate.

The magazine states that the list isa collection of people so uninspiring that we should round them all up and stick them on an iceberg. Please note that these folks are ranked in no particular order, because all zeros are created equal.”

Even though the 25 people on it aren’t ranked, Mitt Romney is the first person to pop up.The only successful thing he did this year was embody every black stand-up comedian’s impression of a white person.”  Truer words have never been spoken.



My former “boyfriend”, and thankfully for Diva Julia it was a very short crush, Ryan Lochte may have abs of steel but he has a brain made out of brick.  They described him as “the U.S. swimmer who managed to increase the Ashton Kutcher-ness of the London Games by 80 percent.”



You know, I actually like ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,’ but the worst part of it has always been Guy Fieri‘s stupid catchphrases (“Duhhh…I’d eat that Velveeta cheese sauce off a FLIP-FLOP! HARRR HARRR HARRR!”), backwards sunglasses, dumb spiky peroxided hair and well, flip-flops in other people’s kitchens. His latest venture, Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar, was mercilessly skewered by a New York Times food critic which promoted way too many people to jump to his defense.


Even though he won an Academy Award for writing ‘The Social Network,’ Aaron Sorkin‘s dialogue has always left me exhausted and annoyed. He has another successful show under his belt with ‘Newsroom,’ GQ perfectly puts it, Watching an Aaron Sorkin show is like someone force-reading you the Huffington Post.”


Also making the list are First Lady Michelle Obama (who really doesn’t belong on this list–God forbid she get your fat kids to exercise)Madonna, wearing her cheerleader uniform, new Laker, Dwight HowardAmanda Bynes and George Zimmerman.
