The stunning Christy Turlington lands the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar

Christy Turlington graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s June/July cover, on newsstands May 28, and in the interview, she opens up about her modeling career, family, philanthropy, and more.

“I can kick! I can stretch! I’m . . . 50!” “I’ve been doing that since I was 27. I can’t wait to be 50.”

In fact, Turlington is 44—and 30 years into a career as what many have called the “ultimate supermodel,” she still very much has her powers. But because she models infrequently these days, a Turlington cover has a sense of occasion. “Now I feel like it’s a treat again,” says the mother of two (Grace, nine, and Finn, seven, with filmmaker husband Edward Burns), “because I do it so seldom. I can appreciate it in a new way.”

Starting to model in her teens saved Turlington from feeling self-conscious. “I was going through the age where most people hate themselves, and I was getting attention in my most awkward years. It wasn’t all roses, but I knew enough to take everything with a grain of salt.”

Of the Bazaar shoot, she says, “Dan [Jackson] said to me, ‘When you smile you look like you’re 16.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah—and then there’s my neck.’”

To date she has resisted anything more cosmetic than makeup. “I don’t know, I feel like it’s getting freakier. Maybe there will be a time when you’re an oddball because you’re the only one left. I’d rather be the only one, the sole survivor. And in that case?” She smiles. “I’ll just wear turtlenecks all year-round.”

“That’s a girl’s life for the rest of her days— somewhere between a lollipop and shots.”

She is seriously flawless. Gorgeous!!

Emma Watson in W Magazine: “The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me”

Emma Watson graces the W Magazine cover for June, and I think she looks absolutely gorgeous. The styling is perfect, it suits her beautifully!

Emma is promoting her new movie The Bling Ring, which I cannot WAIT to see! It’s a new movie by Sofia Coppola. Looks amazing. (Trailer after the jump.

The interview is long – and really interesting!

What is the first movie you remember seeing?
Pretty Woman. I was 7, which was way, way too young. That was when I started loving Julia Roberts and American movies. As a child, I loved being onstage. I loved singing, I loved the lights, I loved the adrenaline. I even loved learning lines. I was completely obsessive. A friend of my mother’s found a tape of me auditioning for Hermione. I wanted to get really, really good at my lines. There was reel after reel, take after take, of me doing the same thing over and over again.

Did you ever feel the pressure of having to be a shining example to young girls worldwide?
I was always a very serious child. I remember being 13 and girls in my class saying, “So-and-so is going to kiss so-and-so on the school fields.” I said, “That’s stupid. They’re too young for it to matter—he doesn’t love her, and that’s just a waste of time.” It’s amazing that I had any friends! [Laughs] So I was the right child to get cast: I loved the responsibility.

Did you have your first kiss on camera?
Thankfully, no. I’ve always been fascinated by Elizabeth Taylor, and I had read that her first kiss happened on a film set, which actually made me a little sad. You need to have normal experiences of your own. I’ve never wanted to grow up too fast: I wanted to wear a sports bra until I was 22! The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me. I’ve never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman.

Christina Aguilera shows off her shocking weight loss in new TwitPic!

Christina Aguilera just posted this picture on Twitter, and she looks insane! Along with the picture, she captioned, “On set shooting music video with @Alexoficial for #HoyTengoGanasDeTi” She’s lost quite a bit of weight!

In other Christina news, looks like she’s headed back to ‘The Voice!’ The singer will head back to the NBC reality show for season 5, and Shakira will be leaving the show, because she wants to focus on her family.

“I’m not going to be able to do next season because I have to get back to my motherhood and also get back to the studio, the recording studio, to finish my album, the one that I started working on before I had to deliver a baby and before I took this gig with The Voice,” she told Us of her decision to leave the show after just one season. “So yeah, I have to take a little break. But you never know, I might come back!”

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer and fellow season newbie Usher have been rumored to be leaving the show, amid chatter of Aguilera and Cee Lo Green’s return. But while Daly could confirm that Aguilera will indeed be back, he expressed uncertainty over Green’s situation.

“I don’t know. I think they are working on a deal to be honest with you, and I don’t think it has been finalized,” he told reporters on the red carpet after the live taping. “I don’t know the answer to that. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was, sooner or later. It sounded like today it was like, ‘Yeah, they are working on it,’ which, usually those things work out, but I don’t know.”

On Tuesday night’s elimination show, a member of both Team Usher and Team Shakira were sent packing following America’s vote — Usher’s earnest R&B crooner Vedo and Shakira’s gritty rocker Garrett Gardner. But being returning judges doesn’t necessarily give Blake Shelton and Adam Levine the advantage, Daly clarified.

“As a producer of the show, we do so much storytelling [for the blind auditions], [but] if they get goose bumps, they just hit their button and go,” he said of the coaches’ decision-making. “I mean, are you going to tell me Usher has a bad ear? You know what I mean? I think it was a coincidence that our two new coaches had people go home tonight.”

New body for her return to ‘The Voice.’
