Cover Craze: Miley Cyrus Bares It For Cosmopolitan, Victoria Beckham’s Leggy ELLE Cover, & More!


January isn’t even over yet, but there’s major buzz surrounding the upcoming March 2013 covers of the most popular fashion magazines, which is why I’ve updated Cover Craze. I guess this is natural, considering all the talk about spring fashion, upcoming films this year, & throngs of celebrities about to hit the red carpet for the Oscars. I’m sure there’s more to come since I haven’t seen what’s in store yet for Harper’s Bazaar, Shape, Self, Redbook, Marie Claire, Allure, or Elle in March.

The always stunning Dakota Fanning covers Glamour in a cute Mickey Mouse sweater, discussing the controversy behind her 2011 ad campaign for Marc Jacobs‘ fragrance Oh, Lola! Next, it seems that Lucky gets Lauren Conrad on their cover at least once a year & March is all about the designer behind Paper Crown & LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, who always gets the cat-eye right & talks about how she maintains her sleek straight locks. New mom Megan Fox takes on Marie Claire UK in a printed one-piece, opening up about her marriage, motherhood, & about her next career move.

Miley Cyrus has once again proved that she’s not a little girl anymore on the cover of Cosmopolitan, revealing more than just her cleavage. She talks about her latest album, being friends with Katy Perry, & prioritizing her relationship with her fiancé. The stunning co-stars of Oz: The Great & Powerful, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, & Mila Kunis, share the cover of InStyle in romantic pastel looks, as we anticipate at least three upcoming red carpet premieres for the fantasy Disney film. Lastly, Victoria Beckham takes over ELLE UK, wearing only best, including Lanvin, Burberry, Miu Miu, & of course her own brand. The hard-working designer candidly explains her work ethic, trust issues, & what’s next for the Beckham brood in 2013.

Accessing luxury designers has just got a little easier! Project Runway winner Christian Siriano is expanding his mainstream fashion palette beyond a shoe collection for Payless with a new collaboration for HSN called Striking. The collection features dresses & separates priced between $80.00 – $170.00, which will debut on air on February 22nd.

As for the opportunity to share his work with HSN & the HSN shopper “This is runway style that is accessible with a wide variety of styles that can be worn every day, at any age… It’s great thing for any designer to be able to explain the process of their work in front of any customer… I think when you have a face and a heart behind a brand to support it then it’s much more powerful. I’m excited to bring my collection into women’s homes and make them feel comfortable when they make a purchase of any new spring item.

Beyoncé is at it again! Not only is she this weekend’s Super Bowl halftime act & hitting the small screen for an upcoming documentary on HBO, but she’s recently shot an ad for her latest fragrance, Pulse NYC, inspired by her new hometown with a Gotham City-inspired bottle. The multi-talented singer has focused this scent on a woman who is “impossible to ignore, exuding sensuality & strength.” ELLE‘s Joe Zee styled the shoot, sharing metallic wardrobe pieces that resembling the mirrored buildings of the New York City.

Runway Rundown: Lauren Conrad’s Stylish Spring 2013 Paper Crown Collection!

It was only a few days ago that I shared a gallery of Lauren Conrad‘s Spring 2013 Collection for Kohl’s, featuring classic separates, feminine pops of color, & spring-ready dresses for a date; however the former reality star has also created a fabulous Spring 2013 line for her luxury brand, Paper Crown. The combination of belted & minimalist maxi dresses, luxe button-downs with chiffon accents, leather leggings paired with oversized matte sequins, & timeless pieces for day, date, & the office offers a variety to mix & match with any wardrobe. Of course, Lauren’s ladylike prepster style will resonate with the J. Crew / Banana Republic / Lulu’s shopper & I’m crazy about the details like cream lace, soft bows, a relaxed fit.

Would you wear any of the pieces in this collection? Do you like Lauren’s style & taste for this line? Do you follow celebrity-turned-designer brands?
