Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron are both undeniably gorgeous human beings and outstanding performers, so naturally I’m a fan regardless of how they play it. The “Prometheus” co-stars landed the August cover of W Magazine, and while there is basically no photograph in the world that could make these two look bad, I can’t help but feel like something is a little off. Fassy just looks so worried, and Charlize’s head is at a weird angle, and there are so many arms and hands and elbows involved that it all comes off as being awkward to me. Am I imagining things? Do you think this cover photo does the spectacular actors justice, or is it not quite what you expected? Also, for what it’s worth, if it is worth anything at all: they are both wearing lambskin.
Do you ever pause before putting in your mouth guard and slipping into your oversize Sugar Ray concert T-shirt and think, “Maybe I need to add some old-fashioned sultriness to my bedtime routine?” Don’t worry–Life magazine has got you covered. In a 1937 issue, they published a photo spread to teach wives how to undress in front of their husbands, featuring ex-burlesque dancer June St. Clair.

Keep this on the down low: Vogue‘s July cover hasn’t yet hit most media outlets, but someone, somewhere, let it slip, and it is gorgeous! Vogue is notoriously heavy-handed with the airbrushing, especially when it comes to the front of the mag, but it’s a good sign that Emma Stone(cold fox) still looks like herself. I’ve always said I preferred the actress as a redhead, but her icy blonde is looking really, really good here. I think I’m in love! [ONTD] Keep reading »
“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting — you don’t shave your legs!”
— Kristen Stewart may prefer jeans and dirty sneakers in her downtime, but when it comes to the glossy, highly coveted cover of a magazine, the “Twilight” actress sure does clean up nicely. Stewart is an unlikely style icon, a rare breed who grapples to stay true to herself even when inundated with ideas of what she’s supposed to be like. It seems that the 22-year-old actress has even come to embrace her cover-girl side, and she plays the glamorous part better than we could ever have imagined when she first emerged on the scene as a messy-haired tomboy, but who’s counting? The upcoming July issue of “Vanity Fair” features Stewart glamorized to the utmost point in Paris, photographed by Mario Testino in avant-garde fascinators and lush gowns. The cover alone has me wanting more, more, more — I’m fascinated by Kristen and her dichotomy of soft, sensitive femininity coupled with headstrong boyishness. [Vanity Fair]
A couple weeks ago we told you about an amazing 14-year-old activist named Julia Bluhm who wrote a petition to Seventeen magazine asking them to publish one unaltered photo spread every month. Well, since then Julia’s been busy. Her petition has garnered over 74,000 signatures (yep, you read that right: 74,000), she scored a profile in The New York Times, and she recently held a mock photo shoot outside the Seventeen offices (that’s her in the middle)… Keep reading »
Kate Moss and Vogue UK go together like ham and cheese. Like peanut butter and jelly. Like crimson and clover. Like yin and yang. So while it isn’t too surprising to see Moss’ visage on the cover of the magazine’s June issue, it should be a little striking to know that this is Moss’ 32nd appearance on the front page of the fashion tome. Here, my 12 favorite Kate Moss Vogue UK cover looks. Keep reading »
I love me some Taylor Swift, but honestly, I never thought she was the Vogue type. Tay-Tay is more suburban mall than bombshell and all those princess dresses are not exactly fashion-forward. But lo and behold, here she is on the February 2012 issue of Vogue with straightened hair and a big-ass wide-brimmed hat. Taylor looks more grown-up than usual here … which I suppose is the point of posing for Vogue, no? [Styleite]
Mila Kunis had a very good year. Besides starring opposite Justin Timberlake in “Friends With Benefits,” Kunis was the top-selling cover girl for GQ magazine this year. Other super successful cover ladies? Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum and Jennifer Aniston. The triumvirate of blonds were top sellers for Elle, Vogue, and Marie Claire. In fact, Aniston had the top-selling cover for Marie Claire with her July cover. Surprisingly missing from this year’s top performing list — Lady Gaga, who covered almost all of 2010′s most successful magazine issues.
Not that Gaga didn’t do well …

“I threw a chair at a director. It wasn’t my proudest moment. He was treating a script supervisor horribly … When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him. I missed, of course. I was like, ‘You can’t speak to people like that.’ I can’t tolerate it.”
—Jennifer Aniston talks to Elle magazine about the time she got so fed up with a director for abusing the crew that she threw a chair at him. Because the tossing of furniture isn’t mistreatment also? Just ask Naomi Campbell.
After the jump, the quote from this interview that every other news source is going bonkers over because JenAn sort of, kind of mentions babies and her relationship with Justin Theroux.
