Kate on Bazaar–Fresh off the heels of her Vogue UK cover released earlier today, Kate Moss lands another with the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar US. The supermodel stars on “The Beauty Issue” photographed by longtime friend Terry Richardson. This marks Bazaar’s third model cover for the year (see our roundup of models on US magazine covers). Inside the issue, Kate will talk about new Topshop collaboration which is set to hit stores on April 30th.
Emma Talks Negative Side of Fashion–23-year-old star Emma Watson graces the latest issue of the UK’s The Sunday Times Style and included inside is an illuminating interview. The “Noah” actress told the magazine that it has been difficult growing up in the spotlight, but she can “take criticism on the chin a lot more”. As for the pressure to be perfect, Watson admits that the expectations can be hard.
“As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can be an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the aging process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling,” the red carpet star tells the publication. Ellen von Unwerth captured Emma for the new photo shoot which is out on newsstands now.
Rita Reveals All on Elle–UK talent Rita Ora graces the May cover of Elle UK, wearing a Dior skirt and a Cartier bracelet. Her “Rosetta” tattoo is the true star of the image (photographed by Thomas Whiteside) though. Rita tells the magazine about the pin-up girl featured on her torso. “It’s based on an original piece by Alberto Vargas, who was an incredible illustrator in the 1930s. He was one of the creators of the pin-up image. That’s our build, our power,” the face of Material Girl explains.”That’s why I was obsessed with it; learning what men don’t understand about women and what women don’t understand about men. I was obsessed with the painting a long time ago, and then I got it done six months ago.” The new issue of Elle hits newsstands on April 3rd.
Amanda on Glow–Actress Amanda Seyfried graces the May cover of Canada’s Glow Magazine, looking ethereal in look from Givenchy’s spring-summer 2014 collection. The blonde starlet was recently named the face of the brand’s Very Irrésistible L’eau en rose perfume. Inside the issue, Amanda opens up about what it means to be a face of Givenchy, saying, “It’s not something I would ever have imagined could happen to me…I never saw myself as somebody who could represent something so chic.”
Miranda Talks Sex with GQ–Top model Miranda Kerr strips down and almost bares all for the May cover of GQ UK. Photographed by Mario Testino (who recently shot her for his “Towel Series”), the Australian model gives a sultry gaze in the image. Inside the magazine, Miranda opens up about her dating life, breakup with Orlando Bloom and sex. Check out some quotes from below, and you can see more (NSFW) images of Miranda on GQ-Magazine.co.uk.
On being more confident about sex:
“The older I get, the more confident I am about asking for things I enjoy,” she says. “One thing I’ve noticed is now that I’m having less sex my body isn’t as toned. The more sex I have, the more defined my arms and stomach get. Orlando and I always had great chemistry. One-night stands aren’t my thing. I made Orlando wait for six months until I even kissed him… I always ask for a critique on my performance. I always want to better myself in every way.”
Fashion lovers have been lamenting the lack of models on magazine covers for awhile now. While foreign editions of glossies often feature models, US magazines have been favoring celebrities for the last decade or so. However, these past twelve months we could not help but notice a trend of models landing covers previously reserved exclusively for actresses and singers. While the heyday of the supermodel may never return to its full glory, these girls are leading the pack in mainstream fashion coverage. Check out our roundup of the model cover takeover featuring Lara Stone, Kate Upton, Daria Werbowy and more top faces.

On staying in shape, she reveals, “I travel a lot, so my routine varies greatly, depending on where I am. But I try to work out an hour a day every day. Usually I do not have that time, so I try to do at least 15 minutes of yoga or stretching.” See a preview of her shoot for Marie Claire below.
