Which magazine cover is Kerry Washington not on right now? She is currently on the cover of the October issues of Marie Claire magazine South Africa and Elle magazine South Africa. This girl is blazing a hot trail right now with the success of her hit TV Drama, Scandal, which in South Africa we know as The Fixer. I read the article on the Marie Claire magazine and I love how Kerry is embracing her success because of how rare it is for an African-American actress to be playing a lead role in a riveting TV drama. She is choosing to focus more on women’s issues versus race. Once again she barely mentions her marriage still choosing to keep her private life private.

This week Kerry was named PEOPLE magazine’s best dressed woman for 2013. It’s safe to say that Kerry Washington has an amazing year! Below are a few of her looks:

The gorgeous Kerry Washington is on the cover of Elle Magazine in the US. Most black women struggle to be on the covers of the high-end glossies and for someone like Kerry it is long overdue. Her hit show The Fixer is back on our screens next Monday on M-Net at 20:30, cannot wait! Here’s what she had to say:

On her success:
“I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie I don’t get to ask for more.”

On a career she thought she’d have:
“I imagined I’d be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I’d figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people.”

On getting ready for the red carpet:
“I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.”

losing you

Solange Knowles released an EP (Extended Play, larger than a single shorter than a full album) in November and has released the first single titled Losing You. She shot the music video for the song in Cape Town when she was here last year to shoot the cover for Elle Magazine. I love the video, it’s so retro and Solange’s sound is definitely miles apart from her sister Beyonce’s sound. I think she is finally finding her voice. I love the song and have been playing it over and over in my car. Enjoy!



a sneak peek in kim k’s closet

Kim Kardashian did a fashion spread for the March 2013 issue of Elle Magazine. She was styled by Nicola Formichetti & the photographer was Miguel Reverigeo. Below is also a video of Kim giving her friend Brittany Gastineau a sneak peek into her closet. She apparently has two closets one for her handbags and shoes and one for her clothes. She also talks about finding her style & having fun with it and the $90 00o sneaker in her closet.

bonang covers elle

Your girl B, more fromally known as Bonang Matheba is on the cover of the October issues of Elle Magazine clad in Louis Vuitton from head to toe. Bonang had the opportunity to go to New York City with the editor of Elle Magazine to experience Yoyoi Kusama collaboration with Louis Vuitton and fashion week. The magazine features pictures of Bonang’s experience, her cover shoot and an interview with the Queen B. Bonang has been featured on may magazine covers in the last two years but Elle still managed to interview her in such a way that we were able to learn something new about her. She’s open about making the mistake of trusting people with details of her personal life, regretting sometimes being too open with the media and fearing that she might fail. Don’t get it twisted though, she is still dreaming big and the sky is the limit for this stylish and talented girl!

kristen cracking out of her shell

Kristen Stewart recently did a cover shoot for Elle Magazine and I loved the male alter ego concept because I always see her as this frail and vulnerable actress who is overwhelmed by fame and she seems to be quite the opposite. She talks about her love for acting, her childhood memories and the ring on her index finger rumoured to be from Robert Pattison.
