Sandra Bullock lands the October cover of Vogue!

article-2422792-1BDD314D000005DC-212_634x869SB-vogue-oct-1SB-vogue-oct-2

Sandra Bullock lands the cover of Vogue Magazine for the fifth time, in the upcoming October issue. The 49-year-old first made a Vogue cover back in 1998.

On this cover, Sandra is wearing a backless sequin dress by Marc Jacobs. I love the dress (from what I can see), but I’m awfully confused by her hair. It’s really bad, right? According to Vogue, her hair was cut for her movie ‘Gravity,’ so the photo must have been taken a while ago. Miley Cyrus was originally supposed to land the October cover, but those plans were abandoned after Miley’s raunchy VMA’s performance. Looks like Sandra was the backup plan.

Some fans have called the hairstyle ‘confusing.’ One The Fashion Spot commenter compared it to a mullet; while another reader said the style makes the mother-of-one look like a ‘soccer mom’.

However others have simply praised Vogue for featuring an ‘older’ star. One Huffington post commenter said: ‘She is truly a beautiful woman in every sense of the word’. Another agreed, adding: ‘She’s never looked better…beautiful woman.’

Katy Perry lands the October cover of Elle Canada!

Katy Perry lands the October cover of Elle Canada, and in the magazine, she shares a bit too much information. Well, she reveals more information than I needed, I’ll just say that.

On getting older: “I’m 28, and I don’t know how young you are, but, as you must know, when you’re at the end of your 20s, it’s a very important growing time. It’s called the Saturn return, if you like astrology—I know it’s important for me. I think that it’s a very important time, when you kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age,” she explains. “That’s exactly where I am now.”

On her evolution: “I’ve always been a sponge; I’ve always had a desire to learn,” she explains. “I didn’t grow up with a real education, but now I am kind of educated by life.”

On her inspirations: The kid who wasn’t allowed to listen to “secular” music has certainly broadened her tastes. She smiles when she tells me that she went to see Kinky Boots on Broadway the night before. “I loved it. I was surprised that I was emotional about it. The message is so powerful.” The musical is based on the true story of a shoemaker who teams up with a drag queen to save his family business. It’s fun and glitzy and boasts a score by Cyndi Lauper. At its core, though, the story is about the characters’ search for commonality and struggle to stand up to their parents. No wonder Perry loved it. Her rebellious streak may be why she says she’s so inspired by strong women like Joan of Arc. She puts it more simply, though. “I always like to go the unique road less travelled.”

TMI:
Then, while describing her preferred brand of vitamin C, she casually mentions that the only drawback is that it tastes like “a load and is disgusting.” She smiles, continuing on, and then stops dead and laughs. “I can’t believe I just said that! Strike the ‘load’ part!”

Her beauty routine: Before long, she has flicked her pumps onto the floor (“Yeah, I’m taking my shoes off!”) and dumped the contents of her makeup bag out on the coffee table. “There we go!” she says. “My bag of tricks!” It’s an unusually literal response to an admittedly rote line of questioning about her beauty regimen. “I make sure to give myself a break,” she says. “I had to find that balance. But I learned this thing called Transcendental Meditation, which I do as much as I possibly can. It’s 20 minutes and you’re supposed to do it twice a day, but I only do it once every other day—but anyway, it works.” She waves her hand dismissively. “People say you should work out 30 minutes a day—none of us works out 30 minutes a day!”

Calls Rihanna out for her pot smoking: She is equally frank about why she admires her famous friends. “I think that Rihanna always looks so fresh and I’m like, ‘How do you do that? We all know how much pot you smoke! And you don’t sleep because you’re on Instagram at four o’clock in the morning!’” she hoots with mock despair and then winks. “I’ll get her secret for you.”

Miley Cyrus lands the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar!

miley-cyrus-harpers-baz-oct

Miley Cyrus‘ twerking on the VMA’s may have cost her the cover of Vogue, but it looks like Harper’s Bazaar doesn’t have any issues with her!

The newly-single singer covers the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and you gotta give it to her, she looks great! The cover was shot by her favorite photographer, Terry Richardson.

Though it’s worth noting that this cover is a far cry from Miley’s first one for Bazaar, back in 2010 (pictured below). In her accompanying interview with Derek Blasberg, Miley makes it known that she’s now into Fashion with a captial F:

“I feel like every girl is trying to have a beauty shot and prove that they’re ‘fashion.’ But I can be in white leggings and a white sports bra and I’m on a whole other level of shit that those girls don’t even get yet because they don’t know how to do it.”

To prove Miley’s got Fashion under control, she tells Blasberg that she brings her own “shit” to photo shoots: an enormous gym bag “kit” containing “over-the-top, blingy, fabulous accessories… Chanel logo suspenders and belts, Versace Medusa necklaces and brooches, spiked stilettos, hats, and miles of shiny gold chains.” Why so much baggage? “What if I get to a photo shoot and the stylist just sucks?” Miley says.

FIRST LOOK! Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. Thoughts?

Nicole Kidman for Vogue Germany August 2013-006

Today we’re getting our first look at Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly! Up until now, all we’ve gotten is pictures, and now we get to see her in motion!

The Weinstein Company has finally unveiled the first trailer for ‘Grace of Monaco,’ starring Nicole Kidman as the late princess, Grace Kelly. The film will be released in the UK in November.

The trailer gives us a glimpse at Nicole as Grace, while Frank Langella narrates. Tim Roth co-stars as Prince Raineer III.

I’ve said from the beginning that I’m not exactly sold on Nicole as Grace Kelly, and I don’t think the trailer proves me wrong. I don’t know if Nicole can pull it off – but then again – who could. Grace was in a league of her own!

Watch the trailer below!
