Sam Rollinson Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK March 2017

Sam Rollinson covers Harper’s Bazaar UK March 2017 issue, and she looks loely. This issue was inspired by by the most beautiful of the new-season collections, the magazine’s 150th anniversary year, as well as the glories of Bazaar‘s extraordinary heritage.

I always love Harper’s Bazaar Magazine covers because they are always full of colour and very distinct. They usually stand out for the right reasons on the newsstands, and this cover is not different. I love the background of the cover. The photographer – Agata Pospieszynska, and stylist – Charlie Harrington, braved the elements to shoot Sam Rollinson on a Scottish clifftop at Dunnottar Castle, and Erik Madigan Heck, Leith Clark and Madison Stubbington faced the wind and waves of Botany Bay on the south coast of England, capturing the spirit of the place. I can see why they went through so much trouble to get the shots with this amazing background. It looks so beautiful.

I have never heard of Sam Rollinson until this Harper’s Bazaar cover, so I went digging. I found out that she is a 21-year-old British model, who has appeared in Burberry, DKNY, Balenciaga, NEXT and many other campaigns.

On how she found herself modelling:

“I’d just turned into a teenager and she decided I was allowed to enjoy shopping with her now.” A month later, they travelled down to London to visit the Select model agency. It was “a bit of a weird experience. I had absolutely no idea [about modelling].”

I like both covers but I prefer the subscribers cover above because Sam has a big smile on, and this cover looks a lot more fun than the regular cover.

What are your thoughts? Which cover do you prefer?

Claire Danes Covers Harper’s Bazaar February 2017

The lovely Homeland star – Claire Danes, is the cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar February 2017, and she looks stunning on both covers.

I am a huge Homeland fan. It is an adrenalin pumping series, and it keeps me at the edge of my seat all through, almost like 24. It is currently one of my favourite series. I have binged watched all the seasons on Netflix as soon as I discovered it. So I am happy to see season 6 is out. I can’t wait to watch that.

This Harper’s Bazaar cover is beautiful as usual. Claire Danes looks amazing on it. I love her hair and makeup (the red lippie always wins), and the outfit looks good too. I would love to read this issue. The interview sounds like a fab read.

Here are some excerpts from Danes’ interview with Harper’s Bazaar:

 

On Donald Trump and BREXIT

“I do think that England and America are so closely affiliated that it’s not terribly surprising there’s this parallel phenomenon occurring between our two countries,” Danes says. “The Brexit and Trump phenomena are informed by similar forces and social and economic movements. I think it’s been really stressful; it’s been really scary. I think we’re in a fever state and we’re all really anxious about how we’ve gotten here and why we’ve gotten here.”

Yes it is a very stressful time for many.

On her Carrie Mathison Character

“You know, I don’t think of her as female,” says Danes. “I’m playing a person. I’m playing a person. She’s just not defined at all by her sex. She is defined by her ideals, by her patriotism, by her commitment to righting wrongs, by her relationship to her mental condition [but] it’s just really beyond the more conventional stereotypes about what it is to be a woman in this world.”

I love Carrie Mathison! She is not a typical heroine, and that is what I love most about her.

What do you think of these covers? Are you a fan of Homeland?

Keira Knightley Covers Harper’s Bazaar December 2016

The beautiful Keira Knightley covers Harper’s Bazaar December 2016 issue and she looks amazing on the cover as usual. I have had my eye on this British actress for years now. I admire her passion and dedication to her career, and I love the fact that she hasn’t aged at all. I wonder what these celebs are drinking. Whatever it is, I want it!

I have seen many of Keira Knightley’s movies. My favourites are Pride & Prejudice, Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean and Atonement. I think she is a talented actress, and I like the fact that she is not everywhere (if that makes sense). I can’t remember the last time I have seen her on a magazine cover, or read her story in the press. She is so elegant, a true English Rose.

In an exclusive interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the 31-year-old talks candidly about gender inequalities, childcare and her family.

Here is a quote from her interview –

On the cost of childcare:

‘One of the things that is so shocking in this country is that childcare is unbelievably expensive. It should be, it’s an amazing thing if you’re good at it. It’s incredibly difficult, it should be well paid. But there is no option for a woman to go back to work unless she’s being paid really, really well and can afford full-time care before [her child can] get into nursery. I think I’ve become unbelievably aware of that and how lucky I’ve been to be able to afford really good childcare, because otherwise it would be at least four years out of my career. I wouldn’t be able to get back to where I’d been if I’d taken four years out. I think that’s the same for most women. And I think that’s really hard.’

I can so relate. We parents all know how expensive childcare can be in the UK. I couldn’t afford to go back to work after having my kids. The childcare fees (a registered nanny is what I wanted) would have been more than salary then so it was pointless. Plus I HATED my job and the long commute. It wasn’t what I trained in, so I didn’t have a proper career to miss.

My decision to not return back to my old job was very easy to make but the journey has been far from easy. I am not Keira Knightley, so the road has been rough but I am happy I went through it because it made me more determined to succeed.
