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.

Ashley Graham Covers British Vogue January 2017

The beautiful American model – Ashley Graham covers the January 2017 issue of British Vogue, and she looks divine on it. I have never heard of this beauty before so it was kind of good to see her on a Vogue cover. I am not completely surprised she is on it though, Vogue tends to feature models a lot more than regular celebs which is kind of good thing I guess.

This issue sounds like a good read. Here are a few excerpts from Graham’s interview with the magazine –

 

Her career journey:

“For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalogue girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom. See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back,” she told D’Souza. “Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, ‘OK, so what can I do now?’”

I agree with what she has said here completely. The job is to get invited back.

 

On being called a plus size model:

“When we’re supposed to be talking about diversity for women, it feels so divisive and purpose-defeating, giving us yet another label,” she said. She does, however, acknowledge that her body shape, and positive promotion of it, has been not only her own USP, but an inspiration to millions of women who feel forgotten when it comes to finding fashion to fit.

I like the fact that Ashley Graham looks happy in her own skin.

Scarlett Johansson Covers Cosmopolitan UK June 2016

Cosmopolitan UK June 2016

 

The lovely Scarlett Johansson is gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan UK June issue, for the first time in 9 years, and she is looks fierce on it. I love the all black outfit she has going, with a bit of skin on display. The short hair looks amazing on her as well. This outfit is putting me in the summer mood already. I can’t wait to rock some summer pieces, and enjoy the lovely weather. The weather in Cheshire has been up and down like a yo-yo, for the past 1 week, so here is to hoping.

I can see this June issue clearly standing out on the newsstands, the black outfit, pose and blue background works incredibly well. It is a stunning cover, with an even more stunning cover girl. The only thing I would have wanted to see on her is her signature red lips, but her makeup here looks good too.

In this Cosmo issue, the 31-year-old outspoken cover girl bares it all. No topic is off-limits, she dishes out her thoughts on planned parenthood, equal pay for ‘every woman’, losing love and finding love, being a wife and mum to a toddler, and everything else in between. It promises to be a good read so I may be getting a copy of this. Plus it is just £1, which is great.

I love this second look. The white mesh dress and the sandals look so stylish paired together. I am loving the sandals especially, it looks fabulous.

There are other articles on the cover that look quite interesting as well. Articles like – Young, Hot & Loaded – We partied with Donald Trump’s daughter, I would love to read this simply for entertainment, I can’t stand Trump and I hope he doesn’t win the election, How to Rule the Coolest Company in the World, by the Woman who does, sounds like an inspiring read.
