I like this magazine cover. It would definitely catch my eye on the newsstands. However, I see and hear about Gigi Hadid a lot so I am not dying to read anymore at the moment. The other features do look interesting though. I would love to the “What Makes An Influencer” and “Spring Fashion Special” as well. They sound right up my alley.

In her interview with British Vogue, Gigi Hadid spoke about her relationship with singer boyfriend – Zayn Malik, her open letter on body shaming and all.

On her relationship with Zayn Malik

“When I’m in LA I mostly stay in because it’s my time off and I like being with my boyfriend and doing art and cooking,” she explained. “We like late-night movies and we order from this amazing place that does lattes and gingerbread cookies. I need coffee to stay up. I’m always like, ‘Babe, let’s go to a movie.’ Then I fall asleep halfway through and he’s like, ‘You’ve seen the first half of every movie out there and you have no idea how any of them end.’”

This made me giggle because I fall asleep halfway through many movies too.

On her open letter

“The response was crazy,” she told him. “From Victoria’s Secret Angels to my friends who are considered plus size, everyone texted me and said they appreciated me saying something. The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure.”

I have read her letter and I am glad she stood for herself and colleagues. No one should be body shamed.

Dakota Johnson Covers Glamour Magazine UK March 2017

Dakota Johnson – the Fifty Shades of Grey star is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine March 2017 issue.

I really like this magazine cover. It looks very different from the other covers on the newsstands, which is a good thing. And Dakota Johnson looks very different on the cover too. I think she looks very beautiful. I love her makeup and hair a lot.

I know little or nothing about this cover star, I have seen the famous Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and I am not a fan of it at all. It made no sense to me, and the acting was not good enough in my opinion. There was a lot of room left for improvement. On that note, I don’t see myself buying this issue. But for those who may be thinking of grabbing it, here are some excerpts from Johnson’s interview with Glamour magazine.

 

On whether her parents have seen any of her movies –

“They haven’t because it’s such a tricky thing. It’s too uncomfortable for them. It’s one thing if a film has one sex scene in it, but with this, a large part of the premise is the arc of their sexual relationship, and I think that’s a little inappropriate for my family to watch.”

So sad her family can’t watch her biggest movie to date because of the very raunchy sex scenes.

On whether she can ever imagine a time when she thinks: “I wish I hadn’t done those films” –

“It comes in waves. But this project is not going to be my swan song. It has put my life on a path that I didn’t plan to go down, but I do feel proud of it. And the films have allowed me to do so many different projects and travel so much. In the end, Fifty Shades has plopped me in a world that I really wanted to be in.”

I guess Fifty Shades opened the door of fame for her. That is good.

 

What do you think of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie? Have you seen it? Are you a fan?

The lovely Homeland star – Claire Danes, is the cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar February 2017, and she looks stunning on both covers.

I am a huge Homeland fan. It is an adrenalin pumping series, and it keeps me at the edge of my seat all through, almost like 24. It is currently one of my favourite series. I have binged watched all the seasons on Netflix as soon as I discovered it. So I am happy to see season 6 is out. I can’t wait to watch that.

This Harper’s Bazaar cover is beautiful as usual. Claire Danes looks amazing on it. I love her hair and makeup (the red lippie always wins), and the outfit looks good too. I would love to read this issue. The interview sounds like a fab read.

Here are some excerpts from Danes’ interview with Harper’s Bazaar:

 

On Donald Trump and BREXIT

“I do think that England and America are so closely affiliated that it’s not terribly surprising there’s this parallel phenomenon occurring between our two countries,” Danes says. “The Brexit and Trump phenomena are informed by similar forces and social and economic movements. I think it’s been really stressful; it’s been really scary. I think we’re in a fever state and we’re all really anxious about how we’ve gotten here and why we’ve gotten here.”

Yes it is a very stressful time for many.

On her Carrie Mathison Character

“You know, I don’t think of her as female,” says Danes. “I’m playing a person. I’m playing a person. She’s just not defined at all by her sex. She is defined by her ideals, by her patriotism, by her commitment to righting wrongs, by her relationship to her mental condition [but] it’s just really beyond the more conventional stereotypes about what it is to be a woman in this world.”

I love Carrie Mathison! She is not a typical heroine, and that is what I love most about her.

What do you think of these covers? Are you a fan of Homeland?
