The beautiful and talented Amy Adams is on the cover of ELLE UK November 2016 and she looks so cute. I love the cover. She looks so relaxed and pretty, like a typical girl next door, and I love it. I also love the fact that she is channeling her autumn style in Balenciaga. Loving the autumn vibes.

This issue promises to be a good read. In her interview with ELLE UK, Amy discusses her struggles to balance family and work, being compared to other women in Hollywood, the issue with the pay gap and being over 40 in a competitive industry.

‘The negotiation comes to a standstill and I have to make a choice, which a lot of women do. I can walk away. But I choose not to…This is an issue not just about women’s pay; we need to work on how women are viewed in society and then the pay will be reflected in that…Right now time is more important to me. So that’s what I negotiate because any time I’m working, I’m not spending with my daughter.’

‘I gave up wanting to look like Charlize when I was, like, 12. I have short legs, I’m athletic, I have pale skin that reacts to cold and hot moisture. You just have to accept who you are. In those comparisons, I always lost.’

This five-time Oscar nominee is also the star of Tom Ford’s new film Nocturnal Animals and Sci-Fi drama Arrival, both of which are garnering five-star reviews and Oscar buzz at the moment.

I would love to read this issue. I can see myself grabbing a copy. I have always liked Amy Adams. I find her very interesting so I would naturally want to know more about her. The price usually puts me off but I have been feeling generous lately so I may get this.

What do you think of this issue? Are you a fan of Amy Adams?

Models Cover ELLE UK August 2016 Issue

ELLE UK August 2016

It is the season of group models on magazine covers and I am loving it so much. On ELLE UK August 2016 issue, we have 4 beautiful models gracing the cover; Ysaunny Brito, Bhumika Arora, Sofie Hemmet, and Maggi Jablonski, and they are all rocking Prada pieces. This cover was shot by photographer Kai Z Feng for ELLE.

I like the fact that these ladies are models on the rise and not supermodels. I like to see new, fresh faces on the cover of a magazine every now and again. I also like the fact this cover is the reader’s choice cover. This is actually ELLE’s first ever group cover shot featuring new models. The whole idea behind the cover is to celebrate fashion’s brave new spirit, and the power in being YOU. I like it.

I really like this cover. I like the fact that various races are featured on it. The beautiful faces are strong and fierce and it looks excellently. This here right is one of my favourite ELLE UK covers till date.F

I am interested in the features on the cover as well especially ‘GET NAKED – The right nude lipstick for you’. That sounds like an article I need to read after my last encounter with a nude lipstick. I am still in the pursuit of a nude lipstick that will look good on me. The ‘GET HIGH – The heel is back’ also sounds like an interesting fashion article.

I am hoping to grab a copy of this issue before it goes off the newsstands. I am quite behind on my reading this month. I am currently reading Anne Frank’s Diary – The Diary of a Young Girl, but once I am done with that, I will play catch up on the others.

What are your thoughts on this August cover? Do you like it? Have you read the issue?

Drop me a comment, lets chat.

Thanks for reading and commenting xo

 

 

 

 

Bella Hadid Covers ELLE UK July 2016 Issue

Bella_Hadid_COVER_MAIN_JULY1

The model; Bella Hadid is looking very fierce on the cover of ELLE UK July 2016 issue. I am loving this cover so much. The pose, denim shirt, light makeup and messy hair looks amazing. I knew little or nothing about Bella Hadid, never heard of her until this cover, so I was very curious to read more about her. I guessed she was related to the famous Gigi Hadid, they are actually sisters, but that is all I knew, her face didn’t ring a bell.

However, after reading her interview with ELLE, I know quite a bit about her now. Her full name is Isabella “Bella” Khair Hadid. She is an American fashion model, signed to IMG Models. She was born in California in 1996 to Yolanda Hadid and Mohamed Hadid. She has a fantastic modelling career, and has recently appeared on the campaigns of Balmain x H&M, Marc Jacobs, and Topshop. Her mother Yolanda is actually a ‘Real Housewife’ on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and that is how the family got into the limelight.

When asked how she copes in the demanding world of modelling:

My mom always taught me to think about something happy when I’m working, because it kind of shows through your face. I used to think about my horses. But now I think about other things. I wonder what was going through her head during the shot when she was stand- ing outside in the freezing rain, wearing just a high-cut red swimsuit and leather jacket? Well, that’s more of an aggressive look. It depends on what the vibe is. I was probably thinking, “Get me the hell out of this bathing suit.’”

I love her sense of humour. A woman with a good sense of humour can survive anything. What are your thoughts on Bella Hadid? Have you heard of her?
