Kate Hudson Is Very Pregnant Under There

Don’t be fooled by the sheet. Kate Hudson was nine months preggers when she posed for this spread in the September issue of Elle magazine. And as she rolled around, showcasing assorted baubles and jewels, she definitely had impending motherhood on her brain. “[My mom, Goldie Hawn] never hands out unsolicited preachy words of wisdom,” More »


Gwyneth Paltrow Never Takes Her Marriage To Chris Martin For Granted

“[Chris is] a musical genius. It’s like living with Picasso and being like, ‘Should I make a little something-something?’ … Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid,… More »


Someone Really Needs To Stop James Franco

James Franco will not quit. This time? He’s added fashion photographer to his credit, shooting a spread for Elle magazine featuring friend and fellow beautiful person Agyness Deyn. Jesus Christ, Franco, will you leave some jobs for the rest of us, buddy? Has anybody looked into the possibility that James Franco may be responsible for… More »


Rachel McAdams’ Parents Spoiled Her Love Life

“[My parents are] still together and still in love. I’m very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that’s probably what makes me such a romantic, because I’ve seen it firsthand … You grow up and you assume that everyone is like that, and you quickly realize… More »


Gwen Stefani’s Middle Name Is “Vain”

“I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual.”Gwen Stafani in the May issue of Elle. I don’t know exactly what she means. Is she saying she loves the visual of herself? Or that she is obsessed with the way things… More »


Photoshop Disasters: Just Giraffe-in Around

This Danish Elle magazine cover model (the one on the right) seems to possess quite an amazing neck. Perhaps she’s one of those special giraffe girls, born with an especially long retractable spine. Or, more likely, she’s just been Photoshopped within an inch of her life. [Photoshop Disasters] … More »


Amanda Seyfried Compares Herself To Meryl Streep

“Meryl [Streep] makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.”
Amanda Seyfried on how to win friends and influence people in… More »


The Ladies Of “Skins” Show Some Skin In Elle

Considering that those PG photos of the Gleeks in GQ caused such a ruckus, I’m wondering if these images of the ladies of MTV’s “Skins” in the new issue of Elle will get any backlash. Sure, they’re reasonably covered—part of a spread on incorporating underwear into outerwear—but the actresses seen here are 17 and 16,… More »


“The City”‘s Erin Moving To Teen Vogue

Our favorite character on MTV’s series “The City” was never super saccharine Whitney Port or hyper-villainous Olivia Palermo–it was Elle PR head Erin Kaplan. Kaplan’s side-eye glare and over-boiled frustration said what we all felt about Palermo’s conniving ways. Well, now she’s got a new gig — as head PR honcho at Teen Vogue. The… More »


Katie Holmes’ Elle Cover Boasts Her Now-Cancelled Miniseries

Katie Holmes graces the cover of February’s Elle magazine, alongside the cover line, “On Tom, Suri, and coming back to TV—as Jackie O.” Only, as we reported yesterday, Katie’s miniseries “The Kennedys” has been indefinitely shelved by The History Channel. That’s a little awkward. [PopWrap] … More »


One Dress, 3 Covers, Big Drama

Miu Miu has some explaining to do. Somehow, the exact same dress from the Fall 2010 runway just appeared on the three different magazine covers, meaning the editors at British Vogue, British Elle, AND W are none too pleased! Now technically, there are a few variations in the design: while the colors are different, the… More »


Where Does The Word “Sneakers” Come From?

I came across a little tidbit in the “Hot Contents” section of Elle’s July issue that said advertising man Henry Nelson McKinney popularized the term “sneakers” while working on a 1917 Keds campaign. The athletic shoes, as Keds were known before this clever moment, had a rubber sole that allowed the wearer to sneak behind… More »


Rihanna Has A Big Head On The Cover Of Elle

If Rihanna’s head was really as big as it is on the cover of the July issue of Elle, it would fall off. [Elle] … More »


Kristen Stewart’s British Elle Cover Looks Ripped From The Late ’90s

Is it just us or does Kristen Stewart’s upcoming Elle U.K. cover look like it features a “Friends” cast member? The magazine says the simple hair and makeup were an attempt to keep in touch with Stewart’s “enviably effortless style,” but we think she looks distinctly unlike herself and a little too much like a… More »


Do You Want To See Average-Looking Women In Magazines And Movies?

Elle editor-in-chief Robbie Myers went on “Today” this morning to talk about body types and how curvier models are getting more attention in the fashion industry these days, with more womanly figures walking the runways at Louis Vuitton, Prada, and more. She said, however, that women reading magazines or watching movies don’t want… More »


Are You A Fan Of Anklets?

While flipping through the April issue of Elle, we learned that anklets and anklet heels are big right now. Lanvin (above left), Stuart Weitzman, and even Nine West incorporated anklets into shoes this spring, and dainty anklets got some attention in the magazine, too. The last time we considered wearing an anklet was probably back… More »


Who’s That Girl?

Why, it’s country music sensation and America’s newly minted sweetheart Taylor Swift, looking very edgy and grownup and oh-so-fashion-y for her new April Elle cover story. Photog Alexei Hay shot her in black and white for the mag, and we have to say, we’re a little surprised. Different, no? [Elle] … More »


J.Lo Brings The Leather Mama Look In Elle

While more than a few of us questioned her judgment when it came to that crazy New Year’s Eve catsuit, clearly, age-appropriate is not an issue for Jennifer Lopez. The February Elle cover pics have dropped and (with the help of Joe Zee, obvs), she brings it in leather and, well, more leather. On competing… More »
