On that note, here’s the scoop on the cover girls, the inside stories, and what you can expect from seven major fashion magazines in March.
Pop sensation Lady Gaga looks pretty in pink on the cover of Vogue’s March 2011 issue. Inside, she reveals how she sees herself as a performer: “Speaking purely from a musical standpoint, I think I am a great performer. I am a talented entertainer. I consider myself to have one of the greatest voices in the industry. I consider myself to be one of the greatest songwriters. I wouldn’t say that I am one of the greatest dancers, but I am really quite good at what I do. I think it’s okay to be confident in yourself.”
Newly-married pop star Katy Perry is bright and bold in Gucci on the cover of Elle’s March 2011 issue. Inside, she talks about her figure: “I was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder, and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know that these things would come in handy someday.”
Reality star Kim Kardashian is red hot on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s March 2011 issue. Inside, she interviews iconic actress Elizabeth Taylor and discusses her new music video, which was filmed with Kanye West: “I can carry a tune, yeah. I have a cute little voice. I talked to people in the business, and they said, ‘This is what we do for fun. You go to the movies, you go shopping, why don’t you try what we do?'”
Actress/singer Miley Cyrus shows off a Roberto Cavalli dress on the cover of Marie Claire’s March 2011 issue. Inside, she discusses her fans: “What I never wanted was for my fans to ever feel like I betrayed them, to feel like I said I was something, then turned around and was something that I’m not. But I’ve never, ever claimed to be perfect.”
Actress Julianne Moore poses in a Tom Ford dress on the cover of InStyle’s March 2011 issue. Inside she talks about feeling sexy: “Well, I think you need to be away from your children. Doing the mommy stuff does sort of squash that area of your life. I can feel that way when I’m alone with Bart or when we take a trip. But the day-to-day of picking up kids and going to the eye doctor and then dropping them off at basketball and then going to the middle school concert, that stuff doesn’t make you feel very sexy! That was my day yesterday.”
Black Swan actress Mila Kunis looks gorgeous on the cover of W’s March 2011 issue. Inside, she talks about watching herself in Black Swan: “Before I started, I couldn’t even lift my arm properly. I literally had no posture, so, yeah, the first time I saw the movie, my jaw dropped. I was like, Oh, my God—I don’t suck. And it’s great that the performance has been captured on film, because I will never put on those pointe shoes again.”
Actress Diane Kruger wears a Chanel jacket on the cover of Glamour’s March 2011 issue. Inside, she talks about her biggest splurge: “The biggest fashion purchase I ever made I thought about for six years. I’m not kidding. All my life I wanted to own a Hermès Constance bag, and when I signed with Calvin Klein, I decided this was the time that I could afford it. I truly broke a sweat when I paid for it.”
