Jessica Simpson poses nude on the cover of Elle Magazine, and reveals the sex of her baby!

Jessica Simpson has posed nude in a cover very reminiscent of Demi Moore’s famous August 1991 Vanity Fair cover. Jessica, 31, has decided to pose nude for the April cover of Elle Magazine.

In the interview, Jessica reveals the sex of her baby! “She.

And Simpson and Johnson have already come up with a name for their daughter, too — but nothing too out-there in the vein of “Maple” or “Apple!”

“We’re sure,” of the name, the fashion mogul says. “We’re embroidering it on things. It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. When people hear it, they’ll know why.”

The Fashion Star mentor admits that it was hard to give up alcohol once she became pregnant. “Givin’ up my Scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me! Though now being pregnant, you crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!”

On hopes for her daughter’s sense  of style: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”

On taking tabloid brutality in stride: “I’m still standin’,” she drawls. “I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16…heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”

On her body subconsciously telling her she was pregnant: “We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge,” Simpson says, not shy about saying so. “Gonna ride our bikes, hang out…do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”

ELLE’s March Covergirl Blake Lively Talks Boyfriends, Kids And More.

The beautiful Blake Lively sat down to dish with Elle magazine’s Mickey Rapkin.

On the men in her life: “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.“

On not having a stylist: “When I’m going to an event, I’ll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’”

On kids: “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.”

On a report that she and Ryan Reynolds are looking for an apartment on Fifth Avenue: “Newspapers say a lot of stuff, don’t they? Though I wish I could afford half the places that I hear I’m looking at. Sign me up!”

Dakota Fanning’s gorgeous Elle cover!

Dakota Fanning has landed the February 2012 cover of Elle UK, and she looks absolutely gorgeous!

On her youthful age of 17-years-old:
“I feel like I’ve lived a long time, but then I realize, ‘Oh, I’m actually only 17.’ I don’t think there should be an age limit on an interest, do you know what I mean?”

On not wanting attention outside of her acting:
“I just want to be an actress. I don’t really do anything attention-grabbing. Famous just sounds so pretentious. Who am I to call myself that word?”

On not letting talk about her physical appearance affect her:
“People are always talking about this person who looks great and that person who doesn’t. It’s there, if you let it in. I let it in to an extent. I just don’t let it affect the choices I make.”

On her younger sister Elle:
“She is incredibly free-spirited and totally wears her heart on her sleeve, you know exactly what she is thinking by taking one look at her. She’s just incredibly… I don’t know, I wish I could be more like her sometimes.”

On not comparing herself with her sister:
“We see ourselves as to completely different entities. I mean, we don’t even look alike.”

Pumped-up fringe and a generous coating of black eyeliner made peepers pop at shows like Louis Vuitton (shown here), Jonathan Saunders, and Dolce & Gabbana.

Trend: Red Lipstick

Christian Dior’s orange-red pucker (shown here) is a spring standby. But, as designers Donna Karan and Anthony Vaccarello demonstrated, brownish and purplish reds are fair game too.

Trend: Bangs

Faux blunt-bangs stole the spotlight at Hermès (shown here) and John Galliano; at Miu Miu, models’ own strands were molded and pinned over the forehead for a similar appearance.

Trend: Silvery Eyes

Etro’s brow-high dusting (shown here), Gianfranco Ferré’s circular shape, and Phillip Lim’s defined creases are proof that—no matter how you wear it—silver eye shadow is still trendy for spring.
