Red Carpet Fashion: Emma Stone at the Amazing Spiderman 2 Premiere in London
My unrequited love affair with Emma Stone continues. Here she is donning a bright yellow pleated Atelier Versace custom gown which features beautiful, delicate Swarovksi crystal embellishments on the padded shoulders and a draped open back. This look is so ladylike while also feeling fresh and young with the bright hue.

Don’t even get me started on how perfect the colour of the dress is with her signature red locks.

  • May 2014
  • Model: Miley Cyrus
  • Photographer: Michael Thompson

For ELLE Magazine's annual 'Women in Music' issue they naturally picked miz Miley Cyrus because I mean, who else has made nearly as much noise as the Bangerz singer herself?

Less predictable? The fact that Miley is actually covered up in the spread. As the face of Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 ad campaign she dons a straight off the runway metallic, heavily sequinned tunic and flared pants combo for the cover.

In the accompanying article Miley discusses becoming a stronger person, the connection she has with her fans and double standards:

On being stronger than she used to be: 

“You know, I’m really thankful that I started on Disney. I got the most intense training. There’s times where I wish I could have just started as a new artist, but the world has kind of allowed me to do that. I feel really lucky—a lot of kid stars get all crazy or stuck in what they were, so they can’t actually become what they’re meant to be. When I went through a really intense breakup—you know, I was engaged—and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn’t there to carry me anymore or if I didn’t have him. And now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”

On connecting with her fans: 

“I have guys and girls that come out, and they’re like, ‘The only reason I’m able to admit that I’m gay is because you’ve made me feel like that’s okay.’ That is so intense, because that is a part of this generation—it wasn’t always accepted—and I feel like I am a big part of that change. Or they know that I’ve struggled with depression, and that helped them get over theirs. That gives me a big purpose—a reason to wake up in the morning that’s bigger than to put on my fucking feathers and my little outfits.”

On feminism and double standards: 

“I’m just about equality, period. It’s not like, I’m a woman, women should be in charge! I just want there to be equality for everybody. I still don’t think we’re there 100 percent. I mean, guy rappers grab their crotch all f*cking day and have hos around them, but no one talks about it. But if I grab my crotch and I have hot model b*tches around me, I’m degrading women? I’m a woman—I should be able to have girls around me! But I’m part of the evolution of that. I hope.”

Check out the video below for a behind the scenes look at her cover shoot:

The issue hits newsstands on April 22. For more Miley head on over to elle.com.

  • ELLE Canada
  • May 2014
  • Model: Rose Byrne
  • Photographer: Colette De Barros
  • Stylist: Katie Young 

Here we have the lovely Rose Byrne posing at the Mike Weiss Gallery located in New York City in a host of very ‘of the moment’ monochromatic looks. I am totally digging each and every piece styled in this shoot, especially those nifty white overalls. Neon artist Thrush Holmes’ works really do provide the perfect punchy backdrop to showcase the on point styling and adding a much needed pop of fun. 

In the accompanying article Rose dishes on her new movie 'Neighbors', acting and female entertainers:

On acting:

“My style of improv is a little ephemeral. Sometimes I can really tap in and other times I’m just absolutely terrible, so it is daunting.”

On ‘Neighbors’:

“My character is a reformed party who girl who is trying to keep it together and is a little bit ditzy – you know, those airheads.”

On female entertainers:

“I am always drawn to a female protagonist and delighted when I find something to watch like ‘Girls,’ which is so great. It’s not just people complaining. There were, like, four to five pages for the lead actors and only half a page for the lead actresses. It was a stark reality right in front of me on paper. That was a really big reality check for me – it was quite depressing, to be honest.”

Make sure to check out the trailer for 'Neighbors' (out May 9th) below:

Red Carpet Fashion: 49th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards
Normally for award show red carpet’s I do a long write up about my picks for best dressed. However, on this occasion I was not overly thrilled or wow’d by anyone. Anyone that is aside from Taylor Swift. 

For a long time I grew very tired of Taylor because she always seemed to show up on the red carpet in pretty much the same look. She never looked bad, but she left me yawning. This year however she has knocked it out of the park a few times and in the process slowly breaking away from that overly sweet, charming girl to a riskier stunner. 
Case and point: this two piece custom look from J. Mendel. Everything about this look is so chic I cannot even deal. From the structured ivory cut-out-shoulder-detail crop top to the black thigh-high-slit skirt - she hit all the marks. Finishing off her look was that signature red pout and an awesome pair of  black leather Casadei ‘Trikini’ sandals.

You can buy Taylor’s Casadei sandals for $890 here.
