Featured Article: Rihanna for Harper’s Bazaar US May 2019


If anyone embodies the flawless intersection between beauty and fashion, it’s Rihanna. For Harper’s BAZAAR’s May 2019 issue, the singer, fashion icon, and makeup mogul stages the ultimate one-woman show in the season’s most daring beauty looks and show-stopping couture.

Glenda Bailey, Editor in Chief of Harper’s BAZAAR, notes in her Editor’s Letter: “The incredible feat of design that is couture fashion calls for an equally impressive person to wear it. Our cover star, Rihanna, is fully up to the task. The multitalented artist, entertainer, and entrepreneur wears museum-worthy masterpieces ranging from rainbow Givenchy to embellished Chanel with a confident ease.” Image courtesy of Harper’s BAZAAR.

Featured Article: Eva Mendes for Women’s Health US May 2019


Eva Mendes covers the May 2019 issue of Women’s Health US magazine, sharing why she stepped away from Hollywood to focus on fashion and raising her two daughters – and why her hot healthy relationship with Ryan Gosling makes her a better parent.

On looking back a few years and how she ended up with her 2- and 4-year-old kids:
“It was the furthest thing from my mind. Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have…not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.”

On how parenting has changed her life:
“We’re just starting to get out of survival mode. I’m starting to feel like a person again.”

On getting back to exercise (a mix of mobility, stability, strength, cardio, and plyometrics moves with trainer Johana Spates) three times a week:
“I’m envious of women who enjoy working out, because I have the worst attitude about it. My vanity gets me to the gym – and obviously health reasons – but I’m kicking and screaming the whole way through.”

On watching what she eats:
“I have blood work done at least twice a year because I have high blood sugar, and high cholesterol runs in my family. I’m not squeaky-clean healthy. I have a sweet tooth, so I can’t keep anything in the house.” Images courtesy of Women’s Health. (source)

Featured Article: Dua Lipa for Elle US May 2019


Grammy winner Dua Lipa stars on the cover of ELLE US’ May 2019 issue and opens up about dealing with fame, the US market, not reading about herself online, and much more (the issue hits newsstands on Apr 23rd).

Grammy acceptance speech for Best New Artist: “I didn’t plan it. It just came out of my mouth. But it felt right; it was obviously shade, but at the same time, he’s spoken about it and he knows what he did.”

On the difference between the American and European audience: “They’re brutal. The trolls stateside are the worst. When I was starting out, I never remember feeling hate. Then things got big, and I felt this weird expectation of being Beyoncé already. Everything you’re doing gets looked at under a magnifying glass. People want to stunt your growth. They scrutinize you and tell you what you should look like or what you should do or ask why did you cut your hair? You constantly live in fear of not being good enough. It’s crazy; you have to be really strong.”

On not reading about herself online: “It’s this vicious cycle where you don’t want to read it, but you go looking for it, then you get yourself upset. I can’t let the opinions of others define what I feel about myself. That’s something I’m constantly telling my fans as well. Platform or no platform, musician or not, everyone’s getting bullied because everyone’s got this screen and they feel like no one can see them.” Images courtesy of ELLE. (source)

Featured Article: Jodie Comer for Town & Country May 2019


Last night, Jodie Comer made her return as TV’s most charming assassin in the second season of Killing Eve. This morning, Jodie is the cover star of Town & Country’s May 2019 issue (on newsstands April 10th).

Inside the issue, the 26-year-old breakout star opens up about her childhood, her serious skincare regime, why she and her mother love to watch Judge Judy together, and more. T&C also secured an exclusive interview with Jodie’s London facialist, Jasmina Vico.

On childhood and if her parents ever expected her to be a famous actress: “I recently asked my mom if she ever thought I’d end up doing this professionally, and she said no. I didn’t really go to a local drama school until I was maybe 11. But as a child I was always doing impressions – of Cilla Black, of the singer Anastacia. I was very extroverted, very in touch with my emotions. I loved to talk, and I was probably a bit of a nuisance in the classroom because I never shut up.”

On how she views her character Villanelle on Killing Eve: “…I viewed Villanelle at the start as an actress of sorts. The way she prepares for her jobs, how she takes them very seriously and is proud of her work and gets off on seeing people be convinced by her guise and her charm.”

On her dedication to sunscreen: “Every day, rain or snow. I try and tell everyone how important this is, and they’re all like ‘Shut up, I’m not putting [SPF] 50 on when it’s thunder and lightning outside.’ And I’m like, ‘You can still get the damage!’

On why she and her mother love to watch Judge Judy together: “She’s fierce – she takes no sh*t!” Image courtesy of Town & Country. (source)


Featured Article: Yara Shahidi & Charles Melton for Cosmopolitan US May 2019


Separately, Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton are very different people. She’s the brains, hitting the books at Harvard and hobnobbing with Michelle Obama. He’s all heart, the real-life sensitive guy behind TV’s favorite jock. But together, the magnetic leads of The Sun Is Also A Star are pure chemistry—and young Hollywood’s new king and queen.

Yara Shahidi on how her Grown-ish character, Zoey Johnson, has impacted her life: “I can tell you that I give my friends the best advice, because my character gets into so much trouble. I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, we tried the whole love-triangle thing. Doesn’t work.’”

Yara on her Grown-ish castmates/onscreen love interests, Luka Sabbat and Trevor Jackson: “It’s really funny. I forgot what story I was telling them—it wasn’t anything bad, but somebody wasn’t being the nicest to me, and I think they both offered to fight them on my behalf. I said no—I’m a pacifist! But I appreciated the gesture.”

Charles on being cast in a lead role as an Asian American: “Being an Asian-American lead for a studio film—it almost seems like it’s not real for me, you know? Growing up, I never saw anybody who looked like me, really. So it’s very emotional for me… [After seeing Crazy Rich Asians] I cried seven times. It was just so emotional. Everyone was of Asian descent, and I was like, Wow. And I’m thinking about the movie I did with Yara, and Yara is Iranian and Black. It’s very surreal.”

Charles on falling in love: “I think you can fall in love in the snap of a finger, you know? It all started when I was 13 or 14. Every girl I was with, I thought I was gonna marry… My head’s in the clouds. I’m a dreamer. I’m a hopeless romantic!” Images courtesy of Cosmopolitan. (source)
