Kate Upton lands the cover of British Vogue!

Kate Upton lands the most prestigious cover of her career! The Sports Illustrated model is seen here on the cover of British Vogue!

The magazine’s editor, Alexandra Shulman, said she deliberately wanted to choose a “curvier” model for the New Year.

She said: ‘It’s very rare for a girl; to move from one area of the business to the other, largely due to the fact that fashion models are almost without curves, whereas swimwear girls are celebrated for them.

‘When I decided to shoot Kate for our first cover of 2013, it was to kick off the year with a young women who is not a stereotypical fashion model – although, let’s face it, she’s hardly a heffalump!’

On the cover, Kate is seen showcasing her hourglass figure in a white dress, which clings to her stunning figure.

Her blonde hair is left loose in tumbling curls, and her make-up simple to draw attention to her natural beauty.

Kate has enjoyed a huge career boost since she landed the prestigious cover role on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue this year.

And the popularity of the pretty blonde star is largely down to her girl-next-door appearance and her enviable curves.

Speaking previously about her most famous assets, namely her large cleavage, Kate said: ‘I don’t really know what the appeal is about boobs. But I do know that when I was in junior high, I used to be made fun of — for being flat-chested.

‘Everyone would go, “She’s not pretty! She doesn’t have boobs!” So I always had boob envy. And when finally I went through my growth spurt, and they appeared, and I just loved them. So that’s why I like boobs, because I didn’t have them, and then I got them!’

Kate gets a lot of criticism for being too “curvy”. I’ve seen many comments about how she shouldn’t be considered a supermodel, based on her size. I think that’s totally crazy. I think she’s gorgeous, and she’s a good role model (size-wise) for girls.

Who’s with me!

Anne Hathaway covers the December issue of Vogue Magazine!

Anne Hathaway covers the December issue of Vogue Magazine, and Annie Leibovitz shot the pictures! (Am I the only one who isn’t crazy about these photos? Annie could have done better, if you ask me.)

Anne is obviously promoting her new movie, ‘Les Miserables’, and is gunning for that Oscar nomination. The interview that goes along with the cover is very heavy on the ‘Les Mis’ talk.

Here are some highlights from the interview via Celebitchy:

Anne on cutting her hair off: “I love the short-haired lifestyle,” Hathaway tells me with a laugh (she laughs a lot). “It’s awesome that I was able to go for a hike right before I came here to meet you, quickly wash my hair, and now it’s dry.” The only downside, she says, is having to get her hair cut every three weeks. “But I’m turning 30, and—I hope this isn’t obnoxious to say—I feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.”

Pres. Obama called Anne “the best thing” in The Dark Knight Rises: “I’m a blusher, and just being inches from him, I went scarlet from the tips of my toes to the tops of my ears.”

Auditioning for Les Mis: “I knew that someone was going to have to go in there and do something pretty special to unseat me,” she says. “Sometimes you leave a room and you feel like maybe you’ve left the door open a crack. This time, I knew that I had slammed it shut behind me.”

Losing weight for the role: Before the start of shooting, she went on a strict cleanse and lost ten pounds, which in the early scenes of the film gives her a gossamer quality. She then took two weeks off and lost another fifteen pounds by following a near-starvation diet, consisting of two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day. “I had to be obsessive about it—the idea was to look near death,” she recalls. “Looking back on the whole experience—and I don’t judge it in any way—it was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely a break with reality, but I think that’s who Fantine is anyway.”

On her wedding: “Oh, my God, I had a blast. Our friends stayed and partied and danced till really late.”

She wants to be a mom: “And now, of course, with me having this beyond-my-wildest-dreams success in my own career—and beyond the success, the joy I take just getting to be an actor—knowing what that must have been like for her to put that aside for the good of her children. Oh, my God. I want to be a mother, and I anticipate loving my children quite fiercely. I think about it all the time, though it’s a silly thing to think about because the kind of mother I’ll be depends on the kind of children I have. I can’t wait to meet them.” For now, she feels as if she’s right where she’s meant to be. “I’d feel a little silly and overly dramatic to say that this feels like destiny. But to have this come full circle in such a spectacular way—it’s making me very happy… OK, it feels a little like destiny.”

Do you think Anne might finally get that Oscar? I, for one, cannot WAIT to see the movie. I think it’s going to be really good, I have high hopes!

Kate Upton shows off her curves in the new issue of Vogue Magazine!

Kate Upton shows off her curves in the November issue of Vogue Magazine. Curves that the’s very proud of, admitting she’s happy to be considered a role model for young women.

“I think it’s important to look at magazines and think a healthy lifestyle is attainable,” she told Vogue. “Now that the fashion industry likes the idea of me, I’m happy if I can have an influence.”

She claims she’s not interested in starving herself again. “I still want to hang out with my family and be a normal girl,” she added. “You have to be confident, and that doesn’t mean starving yourself.”

Her Vogue spread has a seven-page photo shoot by famed photographer Steven Meisel, which includes the 20-year-old bombshell blonde in swimsuit attire.

Earlier this year, Upton was criticized by an anonymous blogger on the website SkinnyGossip.com trashing the model for having “huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition.”

The blogger later apologized for the “intentionally outrageous” post, but said she was merely expressing her opinion about her preferred body type.

Upton received an avalanche of support after the controversy.

Her personal trainer, David Kirsch, told Vogue that he’s one of her biggest fans.

“I have trained a lot of models and celebrities, and let me tell you she is so determined and willing to do whatever it takes,” he told the glossy. “She’s incredibly smart and driven.”

She looks beautiful! Love the pics!

Rihanna covers Vogue Magazine, talks about Chris Brown: “They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view.”

Rihanna covers the November issue of Vogue Magazine, and inside the mag, the singer promotes her new album, ‘Unapologetic’. The new album is Rihanna’s sixth album, in seven years.

Annie Leibovitz photographed Rihanna for the magazine, and the pictures are beautiful!

The interview was conducted on the evening of the MTV Video Music Awards, shortly after Rihanna debuted her newly cropped hairdo. Rihanna talks about Chris Brown quite a bit, and it’s obvious that at the time the two were working towards a reconciliation. The two are now officially together again.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On her new hair: “Spur of the moment. My hair was supposed to be down to my ass tonight.”

On the Robert Pattinson texting rumors: “The most bullsh-t ever.”

On time and space: Rihanna says she found herself one morning in a hotel room in Tokyo and had no idea where she was. “Jen, my assistant, was waking me up, and I was like, ‘Whose room am I in? Why am I in this room?’ I never know what day it is. Never, ever, ever.” What day is today? Rihanna pauses. Her lips curl, and she begins to make an “S” sound. “Ooh, I went to say Saturday.” She laughs and corrects herself. “It’s Wednesday. Wednesday.”

She [was] single: “I have not been on a date in forever. Like two years. Haven’t gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero. I would love to go on a date,” she says. “You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point. Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my ass back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour. No one asks. Trust me on that. I’m waiting for the man who’s ballsy enough to deal with me. I’m going to wait, though. You always find the wrong sh-t when you go looking.”

She never wanted to tweet: “I just thought, Who cares? Do I say, ‘Getting in thecar. Getting on the plane’? I was so distraught by the whole idea.”

Jay-Z on Rihanna’s tweeting: “It’s the rawest form of freedom of expression, right? She has the right to express herself, and I know she’s being playful. I know when she’s being serious and when she’s just having fun. What were you doing when you were 24? I mean, you’ve got to have fun. She’s having fun. She’s having so much fun.”

Will she talk about Chris Brown forever? “To the world, I feel like there’s no closure. There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go. They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song.”

The “Birthday Cake remix was her idea: “I didn’t think it could be anything detrimental to my career. I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking. So now it’s a bit of a fascination, I guess. I don’t know if people will stop soon, but I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will. But they’re not on the inside. They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view. I guess I’ll learn to accept that.”

Riding on her private jet: “Every time we come on one of these things, it’s unreal. I’m in a positive space, but I do have my days. Everybody has their days.”
