She rarely does interviews, but this month, US Elle has scored Angelina Jolie as its June cover subject. The actress is promoting Disney's Maleficent, which is set to be a box office hit. The movie, due out May 28, is already creating buzz, with a new MAC cosmetics range set to debut this month and Jolie's co-star Elle Fanning on Interview's May cover. For this particular cover, Jolie was photographed by Hedi Slimane and styled by Slimane in collaboration with Jolie, wearing a top and leather pants from Saint Laurent.
"A big get for Elle. I like what they've done with her here; the raw simplicity is quite refreshing to see and it's a nice alternative to what would've been a super stylised Vogue cover," writes AL92.
Emmanuelle was pleased to see Slimane shoot the cover story: "You can recognize Hedi's pictures from miles away. I like them, that is a great edit."
Visualoptimism was also in favor: "This reminds me of the old school Angelina, the one I like so much! She is just so stunning — and those cheekbones."
"Wow, this cover just stunned me when I saw it, absolutely flawless and I agree it's giving that early 00s Angelina vibes from when I first loved her," commented Melly5525.
"This is such a big get for Elle. I really have enjoyed her latest covers and spreads where she's been ethereal and very otherworldly, but it's nice to see her being cool and effortlessly edgy again in print," writes pixiedust1603.
Rarely does Glamour magazine attract my attention, although it's hard not to admire a good strong magazine cover like the one for its June issue. Jessica Alba was photographed by Sebastian Kim and the team behind the shoot, stylist Laura Ferrara, makeup artist Lauren Anderson and hair stylist Danilo, have all done a wonderful job. On the cover, Jessica dons an Isabel Marant tank, Brunello Cucinelli pants and an Azaara earring.
More of this effortless photography continues inside the magazine, consisting of another four images of Jessica wearing a range of white outfits from T by Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Raquel Allegra and Burberry Prorsum. These images can be viewed within the 'Glamour – Worldwide' thread here.
Last night, Reese Witherspoon, Cara Delevinge, Rihanna, and Kate Bosworth attended the Met Gala together with designer Stella McCartney (she also dressed them for the event). Whatever you think of their individual looks, together the five women were one of the most eye-catching groups on the red carpet. They kind of look like the Spice Girls reincarnate, don't they?
Anyway. I brought us all here together today because I figured that you'd love to see a photo of McCartney squeezing the mother-effing hell out of Rihanna's butt while the ladies were posed together for pictures. Here it is!
Fascinating, eh? There's a reason they call the Met Gala "fashion's prom."
Interview's latest cover story could not be more perfectly suited for its May cover subject, 16-year-old actress Elle Fanning. Currently promoting her role as 'Princess Aurora' in Maleficent, Fanning is seen photographed by Craig McDean in a strong 90s-style shoot. Perfect, right?
"She has something so special … I love what she brings to a picture. Nice cover!" writes Emmanuelle.
"I love it, she looks like one of those teenagers circa The Goo Goo Dolls," commented MulletProof.
HeatherAnne was also in love with the cover: "I LOVE the artistic angle they took with her, it was about time someone did! She's an experimental person, and I think this cover suits her brilliantly."
As was justaguy: "Loving that Interview took a chance by taking Elle to a different level for her cover. She's looking a little more grown up with a not too over-the-top edge."
"Great cover. It has a strong 90s nostalgia feeling," wrote 5 8 6.
I, too, just look at this and think of the 90s. Check out the thread and see Fanning's cover story within the thread here.
What is it about fashion events that make people want to take off their clothes? We've seen it happen more than just a handful of times, and now, it's almost guaranteed that any high-profile fashion event will be disrupted in some way by folks running around in the buff. Last night's annual Met Gala kicked off with authorities having to apprehend a hot pink mankini-clad gentleman who ripped off his clothes and made a dash for the Met stairs. While his feet didn't touch the actual crimson carpet, he definitely made another memorable moment for the fashion set.
Perhaps they're just fans of irony, or maybe they're just immature and obnoxious, but it seems these days that crashing a fashion affair in little-to-no clothing is the thing for many brave souls looking to cause a stir. Check out these streakers of fashion events past…before more crop up in the future.
