Damaris Goddrie Covers ELLE UK April 2017

The beautiful model of the year – Damaris Goddrie is the cover girl for ELLE UK April 2017, and I am loving it. She looks amazing on the cover.

 

 

This stunning 19-year-old Dutch model has fronted campaigns for Zara, Versus, Coach, Kenzo, Topshop, and many more brands, and I think she is the perfect cover girl, with the most amazing curly hair ever! She is hair goals right here!

In her interview with ELLE Magazine, Damaris Goddrie talks about her modelling career, and everything else in between. Here are a few quotes from her interview –

 

Her Go-to Outfit

My go-to outfit is a pair of knee-high stockings. I wear them with a short skirt and a crop top. Sometimes I throw a sweater over the top; I have one from Moschino that has little lips with cigarettes between them embroidered all over it – that’s getting a lot of wear at the moment.

 

Spotted by a Model Booker

I was 16, shopping with my mum, and I wasn’t interested in being a model. A year later, I was spotted by JD again while I was eating in a fast-food restaurant. I guess I was ready that time. I wasn’t always sure I wanted to model. I was into being curvy and beautiful – not the model ‘ideal’.

 

 

I would love to flip the pages of this issue, it sounds like it would be a great read, and the cover star is such a beauty. The other articles also sound very interesting. I would love to read the Diverse Skincare for all Women and The Denim Report, sound like they would be worth reading.

Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mothers out there.

I love how simple this cover looks. And Emma Watson looks very beautiful in a natural way as always. I am happy to see she is back to acting after taking a year out to focus on her activism. It feels like I haven’t seen her in a movie in ages.

Speaking with Lorraine Candy, Watson talks about her new movie – Beauty and the Beast, taking time off acting for activism and everything else. Here are some quotes from her interview –

 

On taking a year off acting

‘It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything… I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.’

Good for her. We all should try to make a difference in our everyday life.

 

On her role in the new movie – Beauty and the Beast

‘For me, Beauty was the perfect, most joyful thing to do… There was something connected about Hermione and Belle, and it was good to be reminded that I am an actress; this is what I do. The film is pure escapism.’

It sounds like a great movie. I can’t wait to watch it.

On dealing with critics

‘It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.’

One thing I know for a fact is that you can’t please everyone. So I live my life and do me unapologetically. And you should too.

This new issue of ELLE magazine sounds interesting. I will be looking out for it.

What do you think of this new issue? Are you a fan of Emma Watson?

 

 

 

 

Alicia Keys Covers ELLE UK December 2016

Now this is one magazine cover I am completely in love with. It is definitely the best December 2016 cover.

I am a massive fan of Alicia Keys, and I am very delighted to see she is a cover girl for ELLE UK The Feminism Issue December 2016. I have not seen Alicia Keys on a UK magazine cover for a very long time. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw her on one, so this issue is like a breath of fresh air.

Alicia Keys chats exclusively with ELLE UK about her family, being a feminist, and going makeup free.

 

On feminism:

‘Let’s look the definition up because I have in my mind what I feel it means.” Reading on her phone, she continues: ” ‘The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of political, social and economic equality’ – so yes. Yes, I am a feminist, and whoever isn’t is crazy…It’s about owning your power, embracing your womanhood.’

 

I agree with the fact that any woman who isn’t a feminist based on the original definition here, is crazy. I even wrote about being a feminist some months ago. But the problem today is there are various definitions of a feminist, and various types too. I don’t agree with a bunch of them, I think they are just overly excited but I do agree with the original definition Keys read out here, and I wonder who wouldn’t!

On going make-up free:

It took me forever to get this skin. I mean, I know how it feels to have a face full of bumps and pimples. I lived through that in the public eye. But when I first got pregnant [six years ago with her son, Egypt] I started to eliminate dairy from my diet and drank a lot more water, which made a huge difference to my skin. Some have called this a crusade. Well, I died laughing at that. I use to feel the pressure to appear as the music industry expected, but I don’t now.’

I am so happy to know she is now very comfortable in her own skin. I am hoping I get to that level of comfort some day. It is a work-in-progress but I will get there eventually.

 

What do you think of this issue? I am yet to read it but I want to. It sounds like a fab read. I can see myself grabbing an issue this weekend before it leaves the newsstands.
