Jourdan Dunn Covers Glamour Magazine UK April 2017

The beautiful Jourdan Dunn is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine UK April 2017, and I am loving the cover!

 

glamour-magazine-april-2017

 

Jourdan Dunn looks great on this month’s Glamour Magazine cover. I love her short hair and simple makeup. Her outfit is edgy and so her, and that smile is so beautiful. This is one issue I will definitely be reading this month.

In this issue, Dunn chats with Glamour about her career, new collection with Missguided, and everything else in between.

 

On her new collection – LouDunn + Missguided

“I want to have the final say, because it’s my name and it’s a representation of me. I don’t want to have my name on it if other people have done all the work.”

I like the sound of this collection already, and can’t wait to see it in flesh!

 

On designing a collection for “real women” vs models

“I don’t really like the term ‘real women’. When you compare ‘real women’ to models, it’s like they are not real, and it’s like, what do you mean? I live on earth. I have breasts, I have a vagina, I am very much real.”

I get what Jourdan means, she is a real woman of course, but many of these collections are not designed with a ‘real woman’ in mind.  But I guess since this collection is a representation of her, it is going to fit a certain body type more than others, and there is nothing wrong with that.

On her attitude to life

“I have down moments, but I just let them be moments and not drag on. I’m like ‘Be a big girl, get on with it, you’ve got shit to do’.”

That is exactly how I see life too.

 

I love the sound of this issue, it ticks all the right boxes for me. I am looking forward to reading Jourdan Dunn’s interview in full, and the other features as well.

Will you be reading? What are your thoughts on this issue?

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?

 

Anna Kendrick Covers Glamour Magazine February 2017

2017 is off with an amazing start with Anna Kendrick on the Glamour Magazine UK February 2017 issue. I love this cover a lot. I think she looks beautiful and the dress is banging! I can clearly see myself reading this issue.

I have followed Anna Kendrick’s career since her GIRLS days and I am blown away by how far she has come. She is in the new movie Pitch Perfect, and host of the Golden Globes 2017, I am super impressed.

Here are some excerpts from her interview with Glamour Magazine –

 

Should Celebrities Talk About “Issues”

“Well, it’s weird, isn’t it, because I feel like why would anybody want my ‘expert opinion’ on any of these topics? If you want to learn about intersectional feminism, read Roxanne Gay, don’t ask me, you know? I’m being asked to speak on these things when I’m trying to learn about them myself.”

 

I kind of see where she is coming from. Many seem to believe celebrities know it all and have all the answers to world issues. Well they don’t.

 

Sexism in Hollywood

“It shouldn’t be the most important conversation about sexism – because no one really wants to fucking hear actors talk about this, because we’re in such positions of privilege… I would love to hear more about sexism that exists in other fields and how we can address that – but we keep getting asked about it.”

 

I can also see where Anna is coming from with this response. I bet all actors are sick and tired of having this sexism question thrown at them.

I would love to read this issue. I am very interested in Anne Kendrick’s interview, and the other features on the cover look very interesting too.
