Michelle Williams in cover of the Vogue US October issue, shot by Annie Leibovitz.
In her interview with Vogue, Michelle talks about how she went to great lengths to transform into the curvy Monroe, including working with a choreographer to capture Monroe’s walk to weight gain, which she says didn’t work out so well:
“Unfortunately, it went right to my face. So at some point it became a question of, Do I want my face to look like Marilyn Monroe’s or my hips?”
On using foam padding to complete the look: “It felt like being reborn. It felt like breaking my body and remaking it in her image, learning how she walked and talked and held her head. None of that existed in my physical memory, and I knew I needed as much time as possible to make it part of me.”
On how the role couldn’t have arrived at a better time: “I feel like something has changed for me…Maybe it has something to do with turning 30. I don’t feel as shy or nervous or self-conscious. I have more confidence that I can handle what life brings me…It’s like I’ve found my voice.”
On playing the legenday icon: “As soon as I finished the script. I knew that I wanted to do it. I wish that I could play her for the rest of my life.
The October issue of Vogue Magazine hits stands September 20.
Supermodel Kate Moss graces the covers the August issue of Vogue UK photographed by Mario Testino (the same who photographed her wedding).
Wearing a peach sequin and embroidered dress by Miu Miu, Moss looks every inch her supermodel self in her very Forties-esque shoot with a soft curled up ‘do and ruby red lips. Inside the mag she dons vintage-inspired pieces from Moschino, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
On the cover, I like the contrast between her pale skin, and the strong red lip color which balances the lower intensity of her outfit and the title font… Enjoy!

Mario Testino photographed US Vogue’s cover with Lady Gaga for their March issue. The shooting took place last november in the Royal Museum of Fine Art in Antwerp.
Inside the magazine, she poses surronded by Thierry Boutemy’s floral creations.
I think that she does great videos but looks tacky as a truck driver’s tattooed arm, and boringly ordinary on paper – whether she’s shot by a lame paparrazi or by one of the Gods of photography, Mario Testino.
Why do celebrities always assume they’re so polyvalent!?
Jennifer Aniston is Allure Magazine’s February 2011 cover girl. On the cover page, the 41-year-old actress is featured giving an attention grabbing stare with nude lips. Inside the magazine, she is featured cuddling a teddy bear and donning a Barbie doll expression on her face.
The inspiration of the creative director, Paul Cavaco, came from a 1960s photograph of Brigitte Bardot. Too bad Jen ends up looking more like a wax doll trying to appear 20 years younger and looses a lot of the natural charm and glam’ of Bardot.
