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.

Ashley Gralam Covers Cosmopolitan UK January 2017 Issue

It is an Ashley Graham season as she features on yet another magazine cover. This time, she covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK, and she killed it!

I previously featured the stunning Ashley Graham British Vogue cover some days ago. So it was a pleasant surprise to see her on the Cosmopolitan January issue as well. I think I can see more of her body on this cover but I think the Vogue cover is more tasty.

Here is the Vogue cover for January for those who have no clue what I am on about –

I do like both magazine covers. I just think the Vogue is a prettier and more classy shot. Do you agree?

Anyways back to the Cosmopolitan January issue, I have seen it around in the shops and I am hoping to grab a copy (as it is just £1) this week while on holiday. I would love to read more about Ashley Graham. I have gone from not knowing who she is, to seeing her on the cover of 2 major magazines in the UK, in the last couple of days, so she has my full attention now.

I would love to read more about he modelling career and how she has survived the whole plus size modelling industry. I hear it has not been a smooth ride to the top. I even read about many brands allegedly refusing to send Graham clothes for her British Vogue cover, can you imagine that? I would have thought designers would jump at dressing anyone for a British Vogue cover. I guess sizeism is alive and very common in the fashion industry.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you aware of sizeism in the fashion industry? What do you think of this Cosmopolitam cover?

Sound off in the comments section below please.

 

 

 

 

Michelle Williams Covers ELLE Magazine January 2017

The lovely Michelle Williams is on the cover of ELLE Magazine January 2017 issue and she looks good. I remember seeing Michelle Williams for the first time on the TV series – Dawson’s Creek, I have followed her acting career since then and although she has gone quiet in the last few years, she is definitely a talented actress.

Here are a few excerpts from her interview with ELLE Magazine –

Being open but setting boundaries

“It’s not naturally my inclination to be a boundary draw-er,” she says, shutting her eyes and pinching the bridge of her nose. “I’m like, ‘Open up all the doors and the windows and let everybody in.’ That’s the aim of my work, too.” But this isn’t acting. “It’s been a really, really long time since I’ve been in an interview. But I have better boundaries now. I feel less susceptible to emotional wreck-diving to come up with explanations for everything.”

 

This quote explains why I have seen and heard little about her in the last few years. I can see what she means. Being open and having boundaries can be tricky but boundaries are needed for a normal sane life.

 

Tabloids and having an authentic life

“If you feel like people are watching you, it’s impossible to have an authentic experience of being alive,” Williams says. “There’s a performative aspect and a guardedness, and that’s just death. I don’t know how to live like that, and I don’t know how to give a life to my child like that.”

 

I can never understand how these celebs cope with the press all up in their business every time. It must be very hard for many.

I think this picture right here is so beautiful. The hair, makeup and pose is just perfect. I love me some Michelle Williams anytime.

 

What do you think of this issue and cover girl? Are you a fan? Do you struggle with being open but having boundaries?
