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.

Beyonce For The March Power Issue Of Vogue


As the “Winter of Beyonce” continues, we finally get to see the full shoot for her latest Vogue cover. Mrs. Knowles-Carter is featured for the mag’s big Power Issue, with a glorious photos shot by Patrick Demarchelier where she wears Alexander McQueenGivenchy and Rochas. In the interview, Bey talks with Jason Gay about her new album and life as a mom.

Beyonce is embarking on what is sure to be the biggest tour of the year, and of course we can look forward to a new album. She says it will be “a lot more sensual…empowering,” and we can expect songs with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake.

While recording in The Hamptons, her daughter Blue Ivy, whom she refers to as her “homey,” would often be in the studio with her, but pal Gwyneth Paltrow says they would make sure to turn the music down. And about those rumors that Beyonce was faking her pregnancy? While the gossip may have upset her mother Tina Knowles the most, Beyonce didn’t let the rumors get her down. “Mom, I don’t owe them that. Let them say what they want to say.”

Oh, and in case you wondering, she does read internet posts and stories about herself, but she knows better than to read the comments section. “Don’t scroll down! You’re definitely going to get your feelings hurt.”

You can read the rest of the interview and see the rest of the photo shoot when the issue hits newsstands February 19.

Gwen Stefani Covers Vogue, January 2013


Gwen Stefani covers Vogue for the second time, sporting full Saint Laurent Spring 2013 outfits. I’m not a fan of the big pilgrim hat, but she works it. She also joins the rest of No Doubt in a shoot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. The band has been around as long as I have, but are still gaining new fans, like President Obama.

Gwen gushes about the Prez asking for a special performance when he made an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ back in October in the interview, and discusses how she’s still “Just A Girl” at 43. “There have been some times where I have felt that really shitty feeling of being like, Gosh, do the men in this world even think that I’m on their level,” she says.

Despite once feeling as if she didn’t belong in a male dominated industry, she is now one of the few rock chicks left.What sets Gwen apart for sure from the Katy Perrys, the Taylor Swifts, is that she fronts a rock band. I can’t think of any other female pop singer in my generation who does that,”  bandmate and friend Tom Dumont says of her longevity.

I for one am glad Gwen and Co. are still kicking, and it’s because they’ve always done their own thing.  

I feel like we’ve always been in our own little lane,” says Stefani. “Never fitting in. Never a nineties grunge band, never a pop girl band. And it’s the same now. I did the solo thing, but I felt like I was trying to play a character in a way, this Alice in Wonderland pretend version of myself. But this, being in No Doubt, is really who I am.”

The issue hits newsstands on Christmas Day!
