TEEN DREAM?: Miley Cyrus on the May cover of Seventeen Magazine
Singer Miley Cyrus has seemed to cover just about every glossy out there. From Harper’s Bazaar to W Magazine and most recently–Elle, publications have been clamoring for more. WWD has revealed that teen-geared magazine Seventeen wanted a Miley cover, but it was not approved by the star. “She’s very, very selective when it comes to magazine covers,” says a source close to her camp. “Miley declined Seventeen and denied being a part of it, completely.” Which makes sense considering her recent foray into the high fashion scene.
Kirsten on Gender–American actress Kirsten Dunst is the May cover star of Harper’s Bazaar UK, looking lovely in a look from Miu Miu’s spring collection. The star of “The Two Faces of January” poses for David Slijper and wears flower looks styled by Leith Clark in the cover shoot.
Dunst is very vocal about her views on gender when speaking to the magazine, saying, “I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” the face of L’Oréal Professionnel states. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my [mom] created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…” Tells us what you think below.
Fresh Talent on Marie Claire–The May issue of Marie Claire US releases not one, not two but five covers–each featuring a “fresh face” in Hollywood. Recent Oscar winner and Lancome face Lupita Nyong’o, Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, Kate Mara, Elizabeth Olsen and Elle Fanning (star of this season’s Miu Miu campaign with Lupita and Elizabeth) cover the magazine photographed by Cedric Buchet.
Lupita talked to the magazine about the success of this year, saying, “It was phenomenal. As brilliant as it was, onward ho. I hope that I will get to work soon. In due time, what I should do next and what I want to do next will reveal themselves. I am not in the business of trying to top this year – that’s virtually impossible. I’d have to be pronounced the queen of England or something.” Check out all the covers below and see more on MarieClaire.com.
Scarlett on Vanity Fair–Actress Scarlett Johansson covers the May issue of Vanity Fair, giving a sultry look in the image photographed by Craig McDean. Scarlett recently covered WSJ Magazine as well, with a more demure look. Shot on location at the New York Palace hotel, the blonde bombshell exudes glamour in the glossy feature.
Here’s what Lily Anolik, the writer of the cover story had to say about Scarlett when she was on set of the Vanity Fair shoot, “She looked ravishing, radiant, sublime, good enough to eat…And as I joined the small throng that had gathered to watch, throwing subtle elbows to secure a better position, I realized that I was acting the opposite of cool, that I was acting totally and completely gaga. I realized, too, that Scarlett wasn’t just a movie star. She was a movie goddess…”
Beyonce on OUT–Pop superstar Beyonce covers the “Power Issue” of OUT Magazine, wearing a short, blonde wig for the black and white photo shoot. The “Drunk in Love” singer poses for Santiago & Mauricio in the spread. In the article, Beyonce opened up about her surprise album which she dropped last December which ended up being a smash hit on the charts.
On the album being one of her most sexually liberated projects:
“I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist – whatever you want to be – and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”
Miley on ELLE–Singer Miley Cyrus lands her first ELLE cover with the magazine’s May issue. The “Wrecking Ball” star who appears in Marc Jacobs’ spring 2014 advertisements, wears a sequined pants and top look from his fall collection in the image photographed by Michael Thompson. The May issue is devoted to woman in music, and Miley is certainly one of the most talked about names on the pop scene right now.
Lorde on Fashion–New Zealand born, 17-year-old singer slash songwriter Lorde shines in a gold look from Dolce & Gabbana’s spring collection on FASHION’s May cover. Set to launch her own MAC Cosmetics collaboration later this year, the pop star poses for Chris Nicholls in the feature styled by Zeina Esmail. Lorde opens up to the Canadian magazine about teenagers today, her strong sense of self and facing industry pressure.
On her strong sense of self:
“I know who I am,” she notes when she looks at a cherry-red biker jacket by Saint Laurent, “and I’m not this.”
On kids today:
“I think young people have changed the way we view pop culture…we now have this discerning power. We all have Tumblers, we curate imagery every day. We can sniff out bullshit faster.”
