“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.

“Hmm … good relationship advice for me tends to be being honest and knowing yourself. Don’t be an a**hole. That’s my advice. Don’t be mean. Don’t take s**t. Don’t settle.”
—Kristen Stewart gives Twilight scribe Stephanie Meyer her best relationship advice in the new issue of Glamour. I like that Kristen keeps it simple and, honestly, this is pretty sound advice. There have definitely been moments in relationships when I realize I am being a jerk and, yep, those would have been better avoided. [Huffington Post]
Now, I adore Crayola colored hair. I have turquoise streaks myself and highly approved of Katy Perry‘s royal blue wig phase. But something about her current cotton candy-colored locks just aren’t working for me. The tone is so aging and it pulls the focus away from her gorgeous eyes and face. Case in point: the October cover of In Style, which makes the situation far worse with its assorted pink text. Ick! [Styleite] Keep reading »
“What we’re saying is that [J. Edgar Hoover] definitely had a relationship with [Clyde] Tolson that lasted for nearly 50 years. Neither of them married. They lived close to one another. They worked together every day. They vacationed together. And there was rumored to be more. There are definite insinuations of—well, I’m not going to get into where it goes, but … If I were a betting man, I actually don’t know what I would bet.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio talks to GQ magazine about his new movie “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood. But even though DiCaprio spent months playing the infamous director of the FBI, who wore dresses to parties and supposedly had a relationship with the FBI’s associate director, Leo says he isn’t sure in the end if Hoover was gay. After the jump, hear what Eastwood thinks.

Michelle Williams plays Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming flick, “My Week With Marilyn,” and so Vogue naturally had her pose in character for their October issue. “I’d go to bed every night with a stack of books next to me,” she says, explaining how she prepared for the role. “I’d fall asleep to movies of her. It was like when you were a kid and you’d put a book under your pillow hoping you’d get it by osmosis.” Wow, I have to say that Michelle does look so much like Marilyn between the hair, the lips, the body, and the stance. However, does anyone else find that the overwhelming resemblance in those areas makes her normally gorgeous eyes and nose feel disconcertingly off? [Vogue]
