Scarlett Johansson lands the first issue of French Vanity Fair!

Scarlett Johansson was chosen to grace the cover of the first-ever French Vanity Fair!

According to WWD, Scarlett has been named the “ideal transatlantic muse” by Michael Denisot, editorial director of the new magazine, making her the only choice for the debut cover.

Mark Seliger shot the cover, and was interviewed by Ingrid Sischy.

Speaking of Johansson at a press conference, Michel Denisot said: ‘She has every quality imaginable – the elegance, beauty, wit and impertinence that would make her a perfectly decent Parisian if she decides to move permanently into the apartment she has bought in Paris not far from here.’

Scarlett recently bought an apartment in France, to be near her boyfriend, creative agency manager Romain Dauriac. (See him here!)

The 28-year-old actress confirmed her romance with the 30-year-old Frenchman in the May issue of Marie Claire magazine, as she discussed a night out she had enjoyed at Manhattan hotspot: ‘The next day my boyfriend and I were saying, “We were the best dancers in the whole world last night!

‘[We were] completely delusional. I’m sure we were absolutely, like, ridiculous together.’

Romain is the former editor of French magazine Clark, which specialised in underground urban art and the couple both share a friendship with French tattoo artist Fuzi.

She looks beautiful on the cover!

Katy Perry’s stunning Vogue cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz!

Katy Perry lands the July cover of Vogue, and she looks absolutely amazing, if you ask me. She’s wearing a gorgeous Rodarte dress, and the photos were shot by Annie Leibovitz.

Vogue has just released the interview along with some more beautiful pictures. Katy admits in the interview that she’s still in love with John Mayer, even though at the time they were broken up (and might still be, who knows these days).

Katy also, interestingly, talks about her divorce from Russell Brand. She confesses that Russell asked for their divorce via text message, which is such a d-bag thing to do.

Is being a celebrity overwhelming? “Of course I get fazed. And when I am in between records, sometimes I doubt myself. I’ll be like: Did I just get lucky, or did I mass-manipulate the world into thinking that seven songs were worth a number-one position? And then I go back into the studio and I start writing, and the true essential oil of who I am comes bubbling back up and reminds me that it’s always been inside of me, that nobody can take this away no matter what comment anyone makes. It’s going to be there because it’s what I was born with and it’s what I’ve worked on my whole life.”

Her childhood: The atmosphere at home, she says, was “not fun.” She told me, “My parents did not spare the rod. I wasn’t going to great schools, because my parents didn’t believe in public education. They wanted the education to be influenced by their religion, so I was going to these halfway education-slash-Christian schools that were like pop-up shop–style education. My father is hilarious. That’s where I get my sense of humor from. Sooo, he’s very funny and a practical joker, but he’s more emotional and driven. I mean, my mother is very emotional as well, but my dad is more of the guts of the family. He was the main preacher, so he kind of had this little Pentecostal flair, but they are born-again. So there’s a little bit of my background.”

Russell Brand in the beginning: “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie.” Katy Perry: Part of Me, a documentary released last year that has garnered $32 million worldwide to date, covers the period before, during, and after her time with Brand. “That wasn’t edited to leave footage out–there wasn’t any footage of him.”

Drew Barrymore lands the cover of C Magazine, looks amazing!

The gorgeous Drew Barrymore lands the summer 2013 issue of California Style Magazine. I think this is one of the better photo shoots I’ve ever seen of Drew. She just looks so great. Better than ever!

In the interview Drew opens up about her life with husband Will Kopelman and more.

She’s so lucky: “I won the in-laws jackpot. It might be the best karma for having one of the wackiest upbringings. I never had dinner with my mom or dad, let alone together. It’s amazing to think that in life you can completely have a do-over.”

Kopelman enlightened her: “I told him, ‘Dining rooms are stupid. They shouldn’t exist. When was the last time we had a dinner party?’ Family dinners would never have occurred to me, and that’s what I want most. Now it’s my life mission to figure out this room.”

She’s highly likable – don’t you agree?

Salma Hayek talks about her beauty in the new InStyle!

Okay – that might not be a direct quote, but it’s basically what Salma Hayek’s saying. How else do you read this quote. “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more—exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster.” See what I mean?

Anyway, Salma lands the July cover of InStyle magazine. She DOES look gorgeous on the cover, doesn’t she? In the interview she talks quite a bit about herself – which I suppose most people do – but with her, she comes off as self-absorbed. A teensie bit.

Her style at the age of 47: “I actually wear a lot of leather on the red carpet. My husband loves when I wear it.”

Going strapless at 47: “When I turned 40, I started thinking, ‘This is the last year,’ whenever I’d wear a strapless dress. I always thought you can’t wear them after a certain age, but I’m still getting away with it.”

Dressing for her husband: “I’m not really a fashionista. I have an eye. I can pull it together, but a lot of the effort I make is for my husband, because I want him to be attracted to me.”

On beauty as a priority: “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more—exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster.” CONTINUE READING… More »
