Jessica Alba Covers InStyle Australia January 2012

 

Highlights from Jessica’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit InStyle Australia!

On what she found most surprising about becoming a mother: “That I felt completely different. I really came into myself as a person. Before, I was always working for my identity. And then you take the focus off of yourself. I was probably—definitely—a bit of a narcissist. When you are young and an actor and driven, it’s a bizarre state of mind to be in at times. I was so focused on things that didn’t matter at the end of the day. Now I have what I do for a living in perspective. Working was everything to me, my entire identity, and once I got to step away from it, everything changed.”

On what’s different with the second baby:
“I’m more relaxed. Every sneeze or runny nose or little bump on the head that would have freaked me out before…I am more easygoing with that sort of thing. And the sense of knowing that I can get Haven to stop crying. It was all new with Honor and I wasn’t confident, and she could feel that so she continued to cry. That didn’t happen a lot, but when it happened I felt like I would crack.”

On how Cash feels about being the only guy in an all-female household:
“He’s totally great and a real hands-on dad. He’s just such a nice, good person…His biggest thing is that he doesn’t like the idea of them growing up and dating! He’s kidding, but I can tell he’s kind of thinking of the future already.”

On her go-to gadget:
“I just got the new iPhone 4s and I haven’t really figured out how to use it; I have the iPad at home. I had a BlackBerry before, so it’s all kind of new.”

On Haven’s must-haves:
“With a baby you always have diapers, and diaper wipes, and a change of clothes – the essentials. And a pacifier of course.”

On Honor’s must-haves:
“She likes to carry around different princesses, like Jasmine or Rapunzel or a Barbie, or some kind of dolly. Honor loves to carry around random things that she finds for the day, like sunglasses or binoculars. It changes all the time…Honor is really girly. She likes to dress up, try on my high heels and play with purses.”

On keeping Honor entertained:
“We always take a change of clothes — she’s three and likes to play in puddles and everything else. There’s always a coloured pencil or crayon and something for her to doodle on because there are moments wherever we are that she’s sitting and will want to do something. I think we started doing that when she was around 18 months old – that period when you can tell them to stop putting things in their mouth and to draw on the paper.”

On stroller derby:
“Always a double stroller, never two separate ones — one sits in front and one behind.”

On what she splurges on:
“My kids and my house. I’m always doing things to my house. I go that bit extra: I designed my furniture and had it made in an eco-friendly way.”

Selena Gomez Talks New Perfume

Selena Gomez is joining the ranks of celebs that have their own fragrance, and the 19-year-old singer caught up with Access Hollywood and talked about her soon-to-be formulated perfume.

“[Girls] want to smell good for the boy they like at school, or for a crush. That’s what the main thing is!”

“I want it to be really romantic. I want it to be sweet and sophisticated.”

In order to come up with the perfect mixture, Selena has asked her fans to join in by going to selenagomezperfumes.com

“I’m creating the base of the scent and I’m inviting my fans to pick the top notes. Then we’ll pick the top 10 fans and they’ll come into the lab with me and help me pick the final scent.”

This past October, Selena’s pop star boyfriend Justin Bieber visited Jay Leno and talked about his record-breaking fragrance ‘Someday.’

“I thought that girls are going to like something that a guy will like, so I modeled it off of something I would like a girl to smell like,”

Shakira chops off her hair!

What do you think?

Just in time for the holidays, Shakira debuted a new do on Twitter Tuesday. The Colombian singer, on holiday in Barcelona, popped into a salon and chopped several inches off of her hair.

According to photographers on the scene, the singer spent more than six hours inside the Jordi Ripoll salon, which opened just for her. After getting her cut — and posting a cute pic to Twitter (right) — Shakira reportedly went straight for boyfriend Gerard Pique‘s apartment.

Since Shakira has had pretty long locks for quite some time, the new style is definitely a change, but the sharp bob and fringe-y bangs — similar to Katy Perry’s new cut — are very flattering.

FIRST LOOK! Angelina Jolie’s Marie Claire January 2012 cover!!

Angelina Jolie graces yet another magazine cover, and this time it’s Marie Claire! The stunning beauty is busy promoting her new movie, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

Angelina looks beautiful in a blue sweater, staring into the camera with her trademark bee-stung lips and brandishing a gold statement ring.

In the interview, Angie comments on the different styles of her super cute twins, Knox and Vivienne:

Knox is very much a dude. Very physical, tough. He loves dinosaurs and swords. She [Vivienne] is so elegant and delicate. Vivi will pick flowers from the garden and put them in her hair. She likes to get her nails done and collects stuffed animals. It’s very funny for me to have to buy all things pink and watch princess movies!
