Ashley Graham Covers Harper’s Bazaar July 2017

Hey peeps! A new day, a new magazine cover. Today’s cover is all about the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and Ashley Gralam is slaying on the cover.

I really like this magazine cover. It is a great shot and that beautiful smile is sure to attract thousands if not millions of eyeballs on the newsstands. I can’t wait to see it in flesh.

Ashley Gralam kind of looks like Eva Mendes on this magazine cover. I had to take another look to confirm it was really Ashley Gralam, and I am sure I am not the only one that would think that. Do you think both ladies look alike? I think they do.

I am a fan of anything Ashley Graham. I think she is a phenomenon woman and astonishing beauty. And I truly admire her.

Ashley Graham prefers to call herself a body activist, rather than a plus-size model – but labels are less important than her bold confidence and voluptuous curves, along with her campaigning message of female empowerment, self-acceptance and the compelling beauty of diversity.

On the subscriber’s cover, Ashley wears shirt by Marina Rinaldi, shorts by Good American, earrings her own. This is also photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.

One thing I really admire about Ashley is her carriage. I think she carries herself really well. She is the definition of a strong, beautiful and body confident woman.

Graham is a size 18, and proud of it. “I love my body,” she says. “When I look in the mirror, I see a woman who is strong and ambitious, satisfied with who she is,” she says.

This Harper’s Bazaar July issue is now available on the newsstands. Have you read it? Will you be reading it?

Ariana Grande On Cosmopolitan UK May 2017 Issue

The cute Ariana Grande covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan UK and she looks lovely as always. I love her signature ponytail hairdo, and her makeup is always on point. This is a fab cover!

I can clearly see myself reading this issue. From the topics on the cover, it looks like it would be a great read. I would love to read the “Dress like a Boss” article, “How to join the 150k Job Club”, and “Beauty Bloggers: Can we trust anything they say” articles. They sound interesting.

I do find it funny that magazines editors are mostly threatened by bloggers in general, I find it extremely flattering. I am not sure if this Beauty Bloggers article is a positive or negative article, but it is funny that many of these magazine bosses are having sleepless nights over bloggers.

I think there is more than enough room for magazines and bloggers, there should be no competition or bad blood at all. I celebrate the magazines I read, and I truly enjoy writing about them. I have been reading magazines long before I started reading blogs or writing on Fashion and Style Police, and I have a separate place in my heart for magazines and blogs. They feed a different part of me in different ways.

I like blogs because I can relate more to them, and I like magazines because I can’t relate with them, if that makes any sense. I do prefer reading blogs to magazines and that could be because I am a blogger and blogs are free!

 

 

Anyways, back to Ariana Grande. She looks gorgeous on the cover and I want to read this issue now.

What do you think? Have you read this issue? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the week!

 

 

 

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!

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?
