Featured Article: Kendall Jenner for Elle US June 2018


Kendall is photographed by Chris Colls for her first ever Elle cover, with Anna Trevelyan responsible for the styling direction.

Jenner, whose anxiety was a central topic on the last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, talks about the response she’s gotten ever since she went public with her struggle, her famous family, social media, and much more

On talking about her anxiety publicly: “It’s interesting; ever since I said something about being anxious, a lot of people in the spotlight have come to me, being like, ‘Oh my God, me too!’ There’s this community. I take what they do to help themselves and piece it together to find what helps me.”

On her younger sister, Kylie, having a baby: “It’s obviously a bit weird that your little sister is having a baby before you. I didn’t expect it to happen like this. But it’s beautiful.”

On how Stormi has strengthened her and Kylie’s relationship: “It’s brought us closer together. We’ve always been very close, but we would butt heads all the time. This has made her a bit more loving toward me.” (source)

Featured Article: Charlize Theron for Elle US May 2018


ELLE US May 2018 cover star Charlize Theron opens up to her good friend Chelsea Handler about everything from her career, to co-parenting with her mother, to racism in the U.S., in the May issue that will hit newsstands April 24th. Mario Sorrenti shot the covers with styling by George Cortina.

Theron, who adopted her two children – Jackson (Jacks) and August (Auggie) – gained 35 pounds for her latest role in Tully, where she plays an overwhelmed and over-it pregnant mother of two. In the interview with Handler, who has famously chosen “otherhood” – aka not having children – Theron shares her thoughts on parenting, her career, and more.

On her career:
“If you look at my career, I have done more work in realism than the glamour stuff. It’s what I wanted to build my career on and why I fought so hard to not just play the ingénue or the girlfriend.”

On co-parenting with her mom, Gerta:
“I knew that I would have to have my mom help me if I was going to do this as a single parent. To not acknowledge her coparenting my children would be a lie.”

On the adoption process:
“I struggled mentally through the adoption process. Some of my lowest points in my life were dealing with the first time I filed; it really took an emotional toll. There were so many situations that didn’t work out, and you’d get attached and have all your hopes up and then just get crushed.”

On raising two black children:
“They need to know where they come from and be proud of that. But they’re going to have to know that it’s a different climate for them than it is for me, and how unfair that is. If I can do something about that, of course I’m going to.”

On racism in the US:
“I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic.” (source)

Featured Article: Kim Kardashian West for Elle US April 2018


Kim Kardashian opens up to Elle US in a revealing interview discussing everything from her relationship with Kanye West to using a gestational carrier to the whether or not she’ll have more children, and much more.

On caring less about what people think of her: “At the beginning, I looked at people’s opinions. Now I’m content in my life, and I don’t care. The Things that make me happy now are different. But I swear you have to be born for this. It’s not for everyone. I know I can handle it.”

On why four children would be her maximum: “I don’t think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom give the husband as much attention as the kids.”

On using a gestational carrier: “I hated being pregnant. But as much as I hated it, I still wished I could have done it on my own. The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it’s the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody.”

On her relationship with Kanye: “He’s taught me to have more of an opinion. I’ve taught him to be a bit more calm or cautious. We’re a good balance.”

Featured Article: Margot Robbie for Elle US February 2018


Elle US February cover star Margot Robbie is interviewed by her I, Tonya co-star, Allison Janney, where she discusses her future as a director, the highlight of her career and what it was like playing Tonya Harding:

On fear of playing a real-life character: “…playing Tonya [Harding], who’s very much alive and is widely documented, can be more intimidating.”

On directing: “I still love acting. But I’ve spent the last 10 years on a film set, and I realized that if I am pouring my heart and soul into a film, I want to be one of those voices in the conversation making decisions.”

On the first highlight of her career: “When I got to New York for the first time, I took my first paycheck, walked straight into Tiffany’s on Fifth Avenue, and bought an airplane charm that goes on my bracelet. It was the best feeling ever. I got my little blue box, and I got it for myself.”

On which skill she wants to master: “I recently bought fire-twirling poles, because I really want to get good at it. When I was backpacking in the Philippines, there were heaps of fire twirlers on the beach, and it was so cool. I was like, Wow, I really want to do that!”

Featured Article: Zoë Kravitz for Elle US January 2018


29-year-old Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Big Little Lies star Zoë Kravitz wears Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello dress and Kenneth Jay Lane earrings on the January 2018 cover of Elle US shot by Paola Kudacki with styling by Samira Nasr.

On how she fell in love with film: “I didn’t grow up with television. We had a TV, but it wasn’t connected to anything except for a VCR. My mom [Lisa Bonet] would go to the video store, and I was allowed to watch one movie a weekend. I was an only child, and your imagination goes crazy. These films kind of became my friends.”

On her Big Little Lies cast mates: “I said, Wait, I’m getting to work with whom? When? Women like Laura [Dern] and Nicole [Kidman] and Reese [Witherspoon], I’ve grown up watching them, and to me they’re, just untouchable. …They were so encouraging. When those women are in your corner, it gives you a little pep in your step.”

On how fashion inspires her acting roles: “For me, clothes are a gateway to characters. I watch Audrey Hepburn movies and I want to do my makeup like that. I watch Stand by Me and I think, I want to look like a boy.”

On the importance of being honest: “It’s good to be polite, but it’s important to be honest. There’s a difference between saying hurtful things and saying, ‘This may be a little uncomfortable, but no.’ Or ‘Please remove your hand from my lower back’ or ‘You made a weird joke. Why did you make that joke?’” (source)
