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.

I love this Elle cover, simple but striking. I love her messy hair and light makeup, she looks very beautiful in a natural way. The white background also looks really good, this cover will surely catch many eyes on the newsstands.

In her interview with Elle, Beyoncé chats about freedom, feminism, how her new fashion line, Ivy Park, helps women love their bodies, and a lot more. Ivy Park is an active wear & athleisure collection, designed by Beyoncé in collaboration with Topshop.
