On the newsstands cover, Karen Elson is wearing a Gucci dress and Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery, and she looks fabulous. I love the photo, I think it is a great shot, the fox looks gorgeous with her, and the location –  a Palladian mansion in Kent, looks so beautiful. I wonder who owns it.

I must confess, I have never heard of Karen Elson until this cover, so although it looks like an interesting issue, I am not in hurry to read it. I would love to listen to her songs though, her new album sounds like it would be a good one, so I will be looking out for that on Spotify when next I am chanced.

Here, Karen Elson is wearing Dior Haute Couture, and looking magical! She has a very distinct look, with her slender figure, copper curls and milky pale skin. She is the definition of a wild English rose.

Here are a few excerpts from Karen’s interview with Harper’s Bazaar –

On her divorce from rockstar Jack White

I view him as a 50/50 partner and I would never want to have his role diminished. We adore our kids and we’re close – we have to be for our children.

‘In the days when my parents split up, it was “never speak to your father again” kind of thing, and I don’t have that attitude at all… I’ve seen when people have terrible break-ups, when a person is bitter, it’s not good for your kids, it’s not good for your family. I’ve seen a lot of that, and I don’t ever want it.’

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?

Nicole Kidman Covers Harper’s Bazaar March 2016

The lovely Nicole Kidman is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar for March 2016. The beauty wears Alexander McQueen jacket and dress with La Perla slip and Harry Winston jewellery, photographed by Norman Jean Roy and styled by Miranda Almond.

Nicole Kidman is one woman who always looks good on magazine covers. I am yet to see a magazine cover of her not look good. This cover is right up my street. I am loving her pose and outfit, with a pop of red and white as the cover theme. That Alexander McQueen jacket is giving me life right now.

Nicole Kidman wears Marchesa gown, Van Cleef & Arpels earrings, Tiffany & Co bracelet and Bionda Castana heels on the subscribers’ edition cover.

I prefer the main cover, it is sure to catch the eyes of many on the newsstands, unlike the subscribers cover. I guess the powers that be at Harper’s Bazaar don’t have to worry too much about the subscribers cover. The subscribers are reading the magazines mainly for the content, unlike the rest of us that grab a copy mainly for the cover, lol…

I remember back in the day, when my dream was to work as a staff of one of these magazines. I had my eye on all the major ones – British Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Cosmo and Harper’s Bazaar. I stalked followed the editors on Twitter, applied for various roles, and kept dreaming of the day my dreams would come true. Today, that feels like a long time ago. I have zero interest in working with any of them on a full-time basis, but will happily freelance, hahaha. My dreams have come true but in a very different way.

Anyways, back to Nicole’s cover, I love it but not enough to buy it because I have zero interest in her life or career, and the other features on the cover do not entice me enough to buy it.

Did you ever dream of writing for any of the big magazines or do you? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading.
