Lupita Nyong’o is the October Vogue cover girl, and man does she look amazing in all these GORGEOUS dresses. The star knows how to wear couture but more than that- she doesn’t let the couture wear her. Here are some snaps from the shoot and some snippets from her interview:
On fashion in Kenya: “salons were a big feature in my life. We would go every two weeks to get our hair braided, washed, or treated. That’s where I read American, British, and a few African magazines.Then I would design my own clothes. In Kenya it’s much cheaper to get clothes made than to buy them. We would have everything run up by a tailor, or my aunt Kitty, who is very creative, would sew things for me.”
On her father’s political career/tragedy: “I was definitely exposed to some extreme situations. Tragedy is something that I have known and that I have tried to accept as part of life. But I don’t dwell on it. . . . OK! I need to powder my nose!”
On winning her Oscar: “In Africa there is a nationalism that comes with things like winning an Oscar. It’s traditional to be welcomed and celebrated. Praise songs, which are the highest honor in Kenya, were sung for me, and they included lines from my Oscar speech.”

Sienna Miller is confirming what we all knew: being an actress and a mom is TOUGH AS HELLLL.
Clearly, last year has been one of extremes for the girl- ending her four year-long relationship with boyfriend Tom Sturridge and working hard all year on four different movies. And she lets Vogue know what that shizzz is alll about:
On the year: “Everything’s shifting,” she explained to the mag. “It’s actually been the s–ttiest year, and amazing. It’s always yin and yang. I feel like if you’re excelling in one area, it’s hard to manage both and I do feel like the work is going really well.”
On being a mom: “Obviously when you have a baby it’s the most incredible experience but your life is also catapulted into this chaos and you are exhausted,” Miller told Vogue. “I could literally get on this table and fall asleep.”
On “the curse of motherhood”: “I’d like to be better at managing things; I’d like to be more super — although we’re never going to feel it, even if we are. That’s the curse of motherhood — we just run ourselves ragged. I’m just trying to get a sense of what that guilt is. I sometimes feel like it’s a totally invented emotion. It’s strange to be punishing ourselves this way. It’s not healthy.”
Sounds pretty honest to me. Sienna- hang in there. Maybe 2016 is the year of chill?

Hey Beyonce, I see your butt.
Sure, I know it’s probably PURPOSEFUL that the singer forgot her draws for Vogue‘s September issue, but did she also forget to blow-dry her hair?!
I kid, I kid.
In these newly released images of bey in sheer dresses (including one in an Atelier Versache gown), Bey, 33, rocks some clothes that highlight her killer curves, and I haven’t even read the interview yet but I have an idea that these pics will be more of the peoples’ vocal point.
What do YOU think of these pics? Hot as hell or a little…off?

Aw, man. Can Nicole Kidman just retire already, so I won’t have to look at what she’s done to her face anymore?
Granted, it’s not like these pics are HORRIFIC, she just looks too perfect/botoxed/photoshopped and it makes me sad. She doesn’t even look like herself anymore. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Basically, the Oscar-winner posed for the August issue of Vogue and the internet went all HAM on her for looking really…edited. And I agree.
That being said, the Marc Jacobs dress she’s wearing is gorgeous.
What do you think of these Vogue photos?
