Lena Dunham looks beautiful on the cover of the latest Glamour Magazine!

glamour-lena-april

Lena Dunham lands the latest cover of Glamour Magazine, and she looks great! It’s not nearly as photoshopped as her recent cover of Vogue, which I find refreshing. She’s proud of her body, why not highlight her natural body, and not make her look like someone she’s not? I think the pictures and styling are great, and it’s one of the better photoshoots I’ve seen of her.

On Woody Allen: “I find the most recent revelations about his life really challenging. I hated that Mia Farrow had been bullied because the man she was [splitting up with] was the most powerful cultural figure in New York and therefore nobody wanted to look at his behaviour. I’m grateful to Dylan Farrow for her bravery in speaking out. I’m disappointed that Woody Allen thought discussing his ex’s sexual history and shaming her was an effective strategy in arguing his innocence.”

On her heroes: “I think I want my heroes to embody values I can agree with in their work and life.”

‘Girls’ helped her love her own body: “I think I radicalized my relationship to my own body in order to accept it. To make my body a prop in my work gave it a value I didn’t feel it had before. At the Golden Globes I had a little bit of fat bubbling over, but I love how that looks. It looks so bountiful. It reminded me of corset dramas. They’ll be a point – maybe when I’m pregnant or when I have kids – when I just want to have my body for myself.”

On her boyfriend of two years, Jack Antonoff: “I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like ‘God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bulls—t’. I think women are conditioned to stand by their man and watch them make it to the top, but most men never believe the person they get into a relationship with is going to rise any higher than she was when they met. It takes a very special, evolved person to be able to deal with change within a relationship.”

On her good friend Taylor Swift: “She helps me be stronger and make better decisions.”

Lea Michelle is Glamour UK’s March 2014 Cover Girl

In the issue, the 27-year-old Glee actress reveals what life is like after the sad death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith, last summer.

Talking about her loss:
She said: “I immediately started to try and process everything. I didn’t drown myself in anything toxic. At the start, it’s hard because you’re so physically and mentally shocked and damaged, but after a while you get tired of physically feeling so horrendous, so I started doing yoga, which really helped. Then gradually your mind catches up with your body. Now I feel a little bit more back together and I have this blank canvas in front of me, which is what my life can be. There’s something sad about that but also something good, because I will take that blank canvas and make something beautiful out of it.”

Lea Michele on Cory:
“I’m just so glad we’re in a new year. I feel physically and emotionally very strong. You don’t know how strong you are until you have to be. I lost my grandfather a couple of years ago and I always feel that he’s watching over me. I feel the exact same way about Cory. Every day when I go running, I feel like he’s pushing me to run harder.”

Lea revealed plans for a family with Cory:
“We talked about a lot of things. We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin. We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were done. We were it. When you’re at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything. But today I feel like I was given the best part of Cory and I’m thankful for that.”

On Dating:
Is she ready to date? Not yet, she wants to make sure she’s 100% before getting back out there. ”I’ve only ever had serious relationships so it’s an adjustment putting myself back into a place of being alone. And I was under a Cory Monteith spell…it’ll take time to readjust my mind and I’m really not wanting to do that right now. I feel like it’s so important to make sure that I’m 100% OK before I can get into a relationship. But people have to understand that I can’t be alone forever. Cory wouldn’t want that.”

The gorgeous Allison Williams featured in this month’s Glamour Magazine!

allison-w-glamour2

Allison Williams is featured in the March issue of Glamour Magazine, and the ‘Girls’ actress looks gorgeous! I think she is drop-dead-beautiful, but not everyone will agree with me. I find her mesmerizing on ‘Girls,’ she’s just sooooooo pretty. I find her character Marnie a bit annoying, but aren’t ALL the characters on Girls annoying? I have said since the beginning that Adam is my favorite character on Girls – I can almost do without the rest of them. I’m secretly hoping Shoshanna gets killed off this season. Man, I cannot STAND her character!

Anyway, in the interview that goes with these gorgeous pics, Allison opens up about wanting a family of her own, and how she would throw away her acting career in a second for a chance at having babies. I can respect that. I don’t really believe her, but I respect it if it’s true. I don’t think she’s done enough acting to feel like she’s able to move on and start a family. I know I don’t KNOW her personally, but what else has she done besides Girls? Not much. I think she has many years of acting to come before she gives it up to be a stay-at-home-mom.

Career vs. motherhood: “My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom. I’d love to be a mom – and not have to bring my kids into my trailer. That’s my long-term thinking. You gotta call it on the fly to a certain extent.”

She just wants to act, not be “famous”: “If you go into acting for love of the craft, and you dodge the fame aspect, it’s more sustainable.”

Her personal style: “In college I wore a lot of layers, jewelry, and makeup. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more control of the simple. A typical look is pants and a blazer, or a dress. On the red carpet, it has to be comfortable.”

Lena Dunham vs. Tina Fey: “[Tina] is humble and efficient. That exact combination was everything to me. Tina knows everyone’s name. It’s funny, [Girls creator and star] Lena Dunham is the same way. It’s hard to misbehave when your boss is so gracious.”

On GIRLS: “I root for Hannah and Marnie more than I do for Hannah and Adam. Marnie needs a close female friend. Who doesn’t? I’d be nowhere without my girlfriends.”

What she looks for in a friend: “I think the qualities I look for are loyalty, honesty and I think empathy is huge, because as a girl I am entitled to say often we think we want honesty but we want is for someone to say ”No, no you look great.’”

Taylor Swift has the honor of being Glamour USA’s cover girl for their special, super-packed 75th Anniversary issue! Taylor is looking bold and beautiful in red lace on the March 2014 issue, proclaiming, on life and love: “I would repeat all the same mistakes.”

In her feature inside the mag, entitled “Taylor Swift Has No Regrets,” Taylor talks to editor Cindi Leive about “men, mistakes, the glare of the spotlight–and her hopes for the future.” Currently? “I’m trying to be a new version of the person I’ve been my whole life,” she says.

Can’t wait to get your hands on the issue to see what Taylor had to say? You can read a few excerpts below now:

Wearing Her Lyrics On Her Sleeve:
“What I write isn’t necessarily a greeting card. Sometimes it’s a confession of something that really hurt me.”

Taking It All In:
“I don’t have the option of having thick skin. As a writer you have to be open to everything.”

Dating Advisory:
Always consider “giving someone the benefit of the doubt,” she says. “Until he establishes that this is a game… And if it’s a game, you need to win.”
