Featured Article: Camila Cabello for Marie Claire US Holiday 2018


Photographed by Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello, Camila Cabello opens up to Marie Claire US about the two sides of personality, trusting her instincts, and for the first time – her relationship with British relationship coach, Matthew Hussey.

The Holiday 2018 cover is styled by Joseph Errico. Hair and makeup by Peter Savic and Allan Avendano, manicurist Tara Finley.

On the two sides of her personality: “Basically, there’s the me that I really am, on the inside, which is the nerdy one—the kind of introverted, shy one—and then there’s the sexy, overly confident one, doing great dance moves and being super sassy.”

On being vulnerable: “I’ve challenged myself to be vulnerable and to not have a script of what you’re going to say.”

On what the success of her debut single, Havana, taught her: You just have to trust yourself. I’m never going to be like, ‘This is a huge song.’ But I really liked it, and that’s what matters.”

On boyfriend, Matthew Hussey: “He’s so similar to me. In person, we’re just weird and silly and stupid together. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”

On rumors she’s will star as Maria in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming West Side Story: “I don’t think so… I know exactly who I am, and I know what I want to do. I’m just not ready to give up that voice for something else right now.” Image courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)


Featured Article: Zendaya for Marie Claire US September 2018


At 21, Zendaya has never been shy about using her voice, whether she’s calling the shots at Disney or clapping back on social media. For Marie Claire US’ September 2018 issue, she opens up to Janet Mock about re-rewriting the Hollywood narrative, inspiring others to do the same, stepping out of her Disney comfort zone, and how she deals with rejection.

She wears Max Mara coat and Chanel earrings on the cover photographed by Thomas Whiteside with styling by Joseph Errico. Hair and makeup by Larry Sims and Allan Avendano.

On stepping out of her comfort zone, from Disney to feature films:
“…I’m coming from this very different world of Disney. Having been consistently on a TV show, I felt stagnant. Not having that anymore, I am being seen as a real actress, doing what makes me feel pushed and motivated. I don’t necessarily think comfort is always the best place to live in. I’ve really found the power in just doing what makes me happy.”

On creating opportunities for more actresses of color:
“What’s important to me is knowing we [Yara Shahidi, Amandla Steinberg] are not the only black girls in the industry. We kind of have been painted as the face, and that’s not the truth. It’s important to have a conversation where we are opening the door to our peers and more black women who don’t necessarily look like us.”

On changing people’s minds and dealing with rejection:
“I’m an actress. We’ve all experienced getting the no’s, and that’s okay. I always tell my theatrical manager, ‘Anytime it says they’re looking for white girls, send me out. Let me get in the room. Maybe they’ll change their minds.’ And honestly, if there’s a part that I didn’t get or that I really wanted at the time, sh*t always ends up working out.”

On how Olivia Pope liberated her to make her own decisions:
“I call it my Olivia Pope gut. I just had to be in tune with that and be like, ‘Listen, whatever feels right, go after that.’ There’s something liberating about making decisions for yourself.” (source)
