For the record, Sofia, who is 41 years old believes in Sandy’s ‘Less is not more’ logic and doesn’t get tired of all the work she puts into being gorgeous bombshell, all the time:

“No, I’m Latin; I do it no matter what. It’s automatic. I shower, do hair and makeup. for me, it’s like shaving. I don’t believe in natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you’re Gisele Bundchen or 19, you need something!”

She’s awesome.

Beyonce Gets Her Kit Off And Sparkles in FLAUNT Magazine

Hi Poutlings

BEYONCE (2)Despite the fact I am not the biggest fan of Beyonce’s music, one cannot deny that she is exceptionally beautiful. Beyonce is on the cover of Flaunt Magazine, July 2013 with swoon worthy images shot by the talented Tony Duran.

Seems like Flaunt’s creative directors know that there is no need for wasting time on shopping and dressing if all you have to do is to get a couple of body paint bottles and a good brush or two add Beyonce’s figure in the mix and you have one other worldly images as a result.

BEYONCE (4)

The makeup is absolutely first class, and I am slightly jealous I couldn’t get my brushes all over Beyonce. That sounds dirty, but really, it is NOT supposed to.

BEYONCE (5)

well done Queen Bey & co!

Animal Nursery Editorial Controversy

Hi Poutlings

upton3

Here are some photos from a Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot featuring Kate Upton and some exotic fur babies. There is a lot of controversy, of course, as there always is with Miss Upton. However, before I touch on that, please can I confess – I love Kate’s styling in these photos. It’s very retro, but it’s incredibly flattering. I love the fact that no boobs are pushed on you when looking at these images, and I lovelovelove the fact that Bazaar has some hair and makeup people who weren’t hypnotised by her boobies and actually put some great effort in to make her look great!

The controversy? The editorial is aptly named “The Animal Nursery” and the theme is that Kate, is not only a largely talented breasted model, acting as a nurse to baby animals, and she poses winningly while holding up various kinds of animals.

upton4

The shoot was styled by Carine Roitfeld and it will appear in all 26 international editions of the magazine. This is hardly the first time a major fashion magazine appears tone deaf about how fashion editorials are accessorised. Vogue recently went under fire by using actual babies as accessories for fashion shoots, and just a couple of months ago, Vogue did an absolutely terrible shoot in the areas of New York which were drastically affected by Hurricane Sandy. So, where does “using endangered baby animals”” fall on the list of editorial disasters?

Fashionista reached out to Harper’s Bazaar, but no one at the magazine would issue any statements. Fashionista also reached out to Zoological Wildlife Foundation, which apparently provided the animals for the shoot, and they wouldn’t go on record either. But, as always PETA did, FYI – I am not a fan of PETA however their statement was interesting…

“The gibbon featured in the photographs is an infant and should be with his mother at all times. Besides the emotional trauma that he has undoubtedly suffered as a result of the separation, his delicate immune system is still developing, and he is susceptible to illness that humans carry. All the animals in the photographs are endangered and should be protected rather than being treated like props.”

Now, PETA, are melodramatic all the time, however – if all of what they are saying is true, (I’m not claiming to know because I am not a vet), then the gibbon should most definitely be with its mother. Damn. As for the little tiger… I think he is adorable. I wish he would follow me home and he could be my tiger for life. I bet he has super sharp kitten claws though… and to honest, that is what bothers me most about this shoot – that they had all those babies together on the set. What if the baby tiger thought the gibbon was a playmate and those kitten claws come out and then…? Disaster.

Anyway, what are your thoughts?

Miley Cyrus Covers Cosmopolitan Sans Bra

Hi Poutlings

I’m not gonna lie, I do have a soft spot for Miley Cyrus.

I admire the way she has publically rebelled against being the big-haired pop princess and goodie-two-shoes that Disney, no doubt, wanted her to be.

Here she is on the cover of Cosmopolitan, sans bra, incase you did not get the memo that she is NOT  a little girl anymore.

Naomi Watt’s Talks About Playing Diana on the Cover of Vogue Australian

Hiya Poutlings!

First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO OUR DEAR READERS! This is our first blog post of 2013, and I would just like to extend my biggest gratitude to our readers, a blog is nothing without its readers, and you guys are all awesome. I wish you all every day a happy one filled with all the good stuff.

Naomi Watts has is gracing the covers of the February issue of Vogue Australia, and I think this is maybe one of her loveliest pictorials ever. Now, that being said, I can’t really recall any of Naomi’s magazine editorials ever making an impression on me either way. I actually don’t think she does a lot of magazine interviews and editorials…?

naomi2

So, this is a special case, and it’s lovely. I like the floral background and I love the green Gucci gown on the cover. Beautiful.

Naomi appears on the cover for two projects – one, she’s promoting The Impossible, for which she will probably get a Best Actress Oscar Nomination, and God knows, she might even be a major contender for the award too. She’s also talking a lot about her Princess Diana film, which as this point is only called Diana.

That film doesn’t even have a UK or USA release date yet, so who knows when it will come out. Anyway, Naomi spent a big chunk of this Vogue interview talking about Diana.

And here are my favourite parts:

NAOMI ON PLAYING DIANA

“In the case of Diana, of course, there is a huge pressure to look right, to have good hair, to walk and speak like her. And I instantly thought “Oh no, I’m going to fail at that because the comparisons are going to be monumental”. I’m always interested in complicated women, in women who are full of contradictions: strength, vulnerability, success, loneliness and all those things. Diana exemplified that in major ways. She was a great mother, did a lot of things with AIDS charities and the landmines, and had an extraordinary life, but her life was filled with tragedy and, of course, ended in the most tragic way.”

NAOMI ON COMPARING HER CELEBRITY EXISTENCE TO DIANA’S

“Most of the time I go completely under the radar but I do understand a little the pressure and how awful it must have been for her. She was properly isolated because of the media attention and, as a result, paranoid. She didn’t know who to trust and that is horrible. Such a lonely idea… a horrible way to live.”

NAOMI ON THE IMPOSSIBLE

“It was definitely hard work but had it been on green screen, you wouldn’t have got the same feeling. I mean, we were in that pool, struggling to breathe. Of course, nothing to the extent to what the real people went through, but, nonetheless… I’m not even a strong swimmer. The pressure of The Impossible was huge because it is such a sensitive subject and needs to be told with a lot of truth.”

ON LIVING A NORMAL LIFE

“There is nothing that is going to stop me [living a normal life]. I won’t allow that. Sometimes we may be suddenly surrounded by 10 or 15 photographers on the school run and they just won’t get out of your face, but most of the time we’re fine and can get through it. I don’t want to be stuck in the house and send someone to fetch the children.”

ON KEEPING A WORK/LIFE BALANCE

“You know, I want be able to do normal things. You can also add to the problem if you do the secretive thing, putting up the umbrellas and all that. It creates more allure that way. I think it’s better to go out with messy hair. They might write that I look tired or old or something but they are going to pick on something regardless.”

ON TOUGH CRITISM

“I got knockback after knockback at auditions. Just before ‘Mulholland Dr.’ my agent told me I was so intense I was freaking people out. She told me I was a brilliant actor but the feedback was that I made people feel uncomfortable because I was so nervous and intense. I just sat there and blubbed. My mum was staying in LA at the time and I went to her and said: ‘I just can’t do this. I’m not cut out for it.’ She just said: ‘Don’t believe a word people say about you. Forget them.”

I’m certainly looking forward to watching Diana, aren’t you?
