Dakota Johnson Covers British Vogue February 2016

Dakota-Johnson-Vogue-Feb16-Cover-23Dec15_b_426x639

The Fifty Shades of Grey star –  Dakota Johnson is the cover girl of British Vogue February 2016. This beauty was photographed by the legendary Alasdair McLellan, wearing Celine, and looking very sexy. I guess she was channeling her Anastasia “Ana” Steele character in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, while posing for the cover. I think the cover is so pretty.

I am not surprised to see Dakota Johnson on this Vogue cover. Her movie – Fifty Shades of Grey, was a huge success, and Vogue, just like every other magazine company, like being associated with anyone who is successful, just look at the likes of Lupita Nyong’o plastered all over various magazine covers last year and Kim Kardashian landing her first Vogue cover last year, to get the idea.

Will I be buying this issue? I doubt I will be, because if I am being honest (honesty is what we do here), I am not that interested in Dakota Johnson. Pretty girl and all, but she is just not my flavour. I think her acting was painfully poor, in fact bad in Fifty Shades of Grey. I was so disappointed in her and her co-star – Jamie Dornan’s acting skills. At times, I forgot I was watching the famous Fifty Shades of Grey, because it did not live up to the whole hype at all. I was grateful I saw the movie for free online, watching that in the cinema would have pissed me off proper. In my eyes, it was an erotic movie gone wrong.

Having said that, I would love to read the ‘Decoding spring, The runaway edit. That sounds like it would be a good read.

What do you think of Dakota Johnson on the cover of British Vogue? Are you a fan of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie or book series?

Lupita Nyong’o Covers Elle UK January 2016 Issue

ELLE_UK_January_Cover-510x677

The black and beautiful Lupita Nyong’o covers Elle Magazine UK January 2016 issue. This beauty looks amazing on the cover. I love her hair and makeup, and her Louis Vuitton outfit looks stunning. This Lancôme’s first-ever black ambassador is like a breath of fresh air, I love everything she represents and I am super excited to see her on Elle cover.

I remember Lupita Nyong’o from her Shuga Days (an African series), and I am so proud for all what she has achieved in such a short time. For a woman who was once told she was too dark for Hollywood, and would never make it as an actress, only for her to go on to win her Oscar for 12 Years A Slave in January last year, and to become a household name, and a force to reckon with in the entertainment industry, she has done pretty well for herself.

If you turn on the television and you are not represented on that television, you become invisible to yourself. And there was very little of myself that I saw on TV, or in the movies that I was watching, or in magazines that were lying around the salons or around the house. And so these are subconscious things. Yes, Western beauty standards are things that affect the entire world. And then what happens? You’re a society that doesn’t value darker skin.’

 

I must confess I didn’t take to Lupita at first. I was not so impressed with her in the movie – 12 Years A Slave (I preferred the other black woman with the kids), but her drive and determination to succeed inspires me. She is the real deal.

I will be picking up a copy of this issue, I can’t wait to read all what Lupita Nyong’o has to say. The ‘How To Shop The Sale’ and ‘Do You Have The Superwoman Syndrome’ features also look like a good read. I can always trust the Elle Team to deliver on each issue.

What do you think of the cover? Are you a fan of Lupita? Sound off in the comment section, let’s talk.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
