Cover Girl: Elle Fanning for Teen Vogue

Rising star Elle Fanning (younger sister of Hollywood's beloved Dakota Fanning) is the February 2012 cover girl for Teen Vogue. This is yet another shoot with references to the 60s with pastels, lace, and shift dresses. Though its a repetitive theme right now, I still adore this shoot. My favorite dress is the pastel blue, amazing cut and color. 

This photo shoot makes me really miss my ultra blonde hair. She looks spectacular. If I had to choose my favorite images it would be the one with the blue dress (of course), by the pool, and in the checkered dress. Such amazing glamour shots.

Cover Girl: Kate Beckinsale for Harper's Bazaar

British glam queen and movie star Kate Beckinsale is the latest lady to grace the cover of Harper's Bazaar Russia. She is their cover girl for the January 2012 issue. She evokes swinging 60s glamour through her updo a la Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, big button earrings, shift dresses, and white rimmed sunglasses.  We've seen a huge comeback in 60s fashion this year such as Blake Lively's shoot for Glamour and Dianna Agron for Nylon

My favorite images from this shoot are the black and white close ups, though I do love the image of Kate by the pool wearing a mint jacket and stunning mod sunglasses.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo NYC Premiere

Rooney Mara and co-star Daniel Craig took to NYC to promote their film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. In dramatic fashion in line with their dark adventure-drama film, Craig wore a navy suit while Mara opted for a sheer cutout black cocktail dress. 

Katy Perry Promotes Meow

Katy Perry took to the Grove in LA to promote her latest fragrance Meow. I absolutely love this look for her. It still maintains a bit of the fun Katy that we all know and love (through the large bow around her neck) but she is more toned down. I think when she's not dressing to the extreme in lavish costumes, her natural beauty gets to come through. The soft pink color complements her skin tone.

Cover Girl: Carey Mulligan for W Magazine

Carey Mulligan star of this year's Drive and one of my favorite films, An Education, sat down with W Magazine about her new project called Shame also staring Michael Fassbender. The film follows a thirty something man with a deviant and uncontrollable sex life. His world is turned more upside down by the appearance of his sister who has moved in for an indefinite stay. 

The british beauty covers W's January 2012 issue. I love these photos. They convey her talent for acting as she expresses various emotions in the images. I'm also obsessed with the dress with prints of vintage automobiles! So fab!  
Mulligan is currently filming The Great Gatsby alongside Tobey Maguire and Leo DiCaprio.

Cover Girl: Dianna Agron for Nylon

Glee star Dianna Agron is the latest cover girl for Nylon Magazine in their January 2011 issue. I LOVE this photo shoot, being a huge fan of 60s fashion and makeup, this is a photo shoot right up my alley. Dianna takes style cues from the iconic Twiggy with long black lashes and flattened short hair. 
And here is Dianna celebrating the release of her magazine cover.
