Rachel Zoe Shares on Her "Really Wonderful, Drama-Free" Pregnancy and John Galliano in The Hollywood Reporter
Rachel Zoe proudly bared her baby bump for a special issue of The Hollywood Reporter. She was so happy with the article that she tweeted, "pinch me — such a beautiful piece!" The superstar stylist, who's expecting a son with her husband Rodger Berman, has been busy prepping for their new arrival with a star-studded baby shower and a stint shopping for his room. However, she's busy as always and just came off a well-regarded job dressing Anne Hathaway at the Oscars. Rachel spoke to the publication about her happiness with her select client list, loving this time in her life but still prepping for the future, and even weighed in on John Galliano's public meltdown and firing. She said:
- On the current time in her life: "I can say in all honesty that being pregnant, working with the kind of people I work with and being this businesswoman has been a really wonderful, drama-free time in my life."
- On why she went to LA: "To merge the worlds of Hollywood and fashion . . . Because I felt that there was this huge disconnect. I didn’t understand why the most glamorous place in the world wasn’t using the most glamorous clothes . . . Ten years ago, you couldn’t find a fashion photographer or couture anywhere around here. Coming out, I was fascinated by the red carpet and Old Hollywood in particular, so I was like, ‘You’ve gotta mix things up. You need to give some edge, some glamour, take some chances.'"
- On John Galliano's comments and firing: "It’s a little insane and super-sad. Anti-Semitism, racism or any prejudice is not something I tolerate. I’ve fired clients because they were anti-Semitic, or anti-everything, except what they were. . . I’ve known John Galliano and his boyfriend for years. I don’t know enough about it to make a clear statement, but if it’s true, it’s tragic."
- On her family's future: "I have this visual of me and Rodg living in this amazing house that’s not too big in the south of France, where we go for four months and just sit on the beach and make jewelry. Not to sell, just for fun and therapy. Like literally, take rocks and shells and glue them."
Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Country Strong, Champagne Confidence with Jay-Z and London Dance Parties in InStyle
Gwyneth Paltrow is interviewed by Faith Hill in the April issue of InStyle magazine. Gwyneth stars alongside Faith's husband Tim McGraw in Country Strong, which will be released in the UK on March 25. Here are some highlights from her interview:
- On how she prepared to play a Country singer: “I’ve never prepared for anything more in my life. It was a big responsibility. There was studying with an accent coach, learning to play guitar and, of course, the singing. My voice didn’t have any power and I wanted to try to sing properly. I was so nervous about performing live scenes in the film; that’s so foreign to me.”
- On performing with her friend Jay-Z: “I did. I got onstage with him at the Royal Albert Hall [in 2006]. I stood in the back and sang with him. That was the night of my 34th birthday and I drank a bunch of champagne before going on just to get through it. It was also before I had any singing lessons. I was sooo nervous, but that was just for fun. I’m glad I did it.”
- On a typical Saturday night: “Well, last Saturday night, I made turkey meatballs and we all had dinner together, then put the kids to bed and watched a movie on Apple TV. We always go out one night of the weekend, because it’s nice for me to get out of the house. I cook so much during the week, it’s good for me to have a break and eat something that I don’t make, like sashimi or Indian food.”
- On her life in London: “I like having dance parties at my house and being super-goofy with my girlfriends. We just play dance music like whatever is on the radio and then old stuff – Michael Jackson, disco – and new stuff; we mix it up. It’s fun.”

Gwen Stefani looks stunning on the cover of April's Elle magazine, and inside talks exclusively and candidly to Shirley Manson about her busy life, workout regime, family, fashion, No Doubt and Brit culture as well as much more. Take a look behind the scenes at her shoot — here are some interview highlights:
- On her workout regime: "It’s a daily struggle. I work out five days a week, I can’t imagine not doing it. I’d like to have no rules and eat what I want, but I’ve learned over the years that I’m so disappointed when I can’t wear the clothes I want to wear. And if I let myself down, appear on stage when I’m not looking my best, it’s not fun for me. I just beat myself up about it."
- On British culture: "It’s really weird becoming a part of it, because I was always such a fan! When I discovered music, it was all about the UK… Madness, The Specials, UB40, Depeche Mode, The Cure and all of that 1980s music that I worship. The music that they wrote was so English, it was so about their world, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. When you grow up in Orange County, you never think you’ll go there. The fact that I ended up with this English guy is really weird. I don’t know how that happened."

Amanda Seyfried graces the April cover of Elle US wearing a Prada dress reminiscent of Hailee Steinfeld's SAG Awards gown. The Red Riding Hood star gives a candid interview in the pages of the magazine, opening up about her past relationships with Dominic Cooper and Alexander Skarsgard. The actress, who attended the premiere of her dark new film in LA last night, also talks about Hollywood's beauty standards and what it was like to lock lips with the likes of her Now costar Justin Timberlake. Here are some highlights:
- On kissing on the silver screen: “I can’t lie. It didn’t suck making out with Channing [Tatum] and Justin [Timberlake]. “
- On being asked to get Botox: "I was like, Damn you! But we’re in Hollywood. I’m on a huge screen. With these new digital cameras, you can see the peach fuzz on my face.”
- On how Dominic Cooper's previous girlfriend led to their breakup: “I was just kind of foolishly thinking that the two of them were done and Dom and I were involved. But we weren’t really as involved as I thought. So I got my heart broken pretty hard. After that, it’s really hard to open myself up to a new person. Really hard.”
- On another famous ex, Alexander Skarsgård: “We dated. He’s superfunny, but I was too involved with Dom.”
- On her reported new love Ryan Phillippe: “Um, yeah. I’ve been ‘seen’ with him.”
Britney Spears made a splash on the cover of the Spring V Magazine, which is out on US newsstands today. She was photographed by Mario Testino in multiple skimpy ensembles for the spread, which is in the same issue that features very sexy Gisele. Britney's promoting Femme Fatale, which is one of BuzzSugar's must haves for March, following the success of her first single, "Hold It Against Me." She opened up about working on the "best album" she has ever made, her boys, and fame. Here's more:
- On if she thinks she was destined to be a star: "If not, then God definitely has a strange sense of humor."
- On what she'd do if she stopped making music: "I'd be a full-time mom which would be cool. I'd miss my fans and all of the love the most, but I definitely would not miss having my picture taken everywhere I go. I wouldn't miss showering in arenas either. So gross!"
- On her legacy: "Two amazing boys and a lot of music that hopefully brings a lot of people a lot of happiness."
- On her other interests: "I love to cook, especially for my boys. I also make a mean southern sweet tea from a recipe my mom passed on to me. It's really good. I love it. I make it for my boys all the time."
- On fame: "I don't think I thought about 'fame' when I was a child. I knew I wanted to perform and I knew I wanted to be on stage but I don't think I ever thought about fame or what comes with being famous."
Eva Herzigova posed with her baby bump in Lanvin, Dior, and Chanel for an eight-page fashion shoot in Harper's Bazaar UK's April issue, which celebrates contemporary motherhood. Eva, who is represented by Storm Models, revealed she was four months pregnant last October, and enjoyed the haute couture shows in Paris in January. She found time to chat with the magazine about motherhood, pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding in public. Here are the highlights:
- On her theory on motherhood: "It’s like you grow an antenna on top of your head and you are constantly connected. It puts your priorities in perspective, and your everyday choices. When I’m pregnant, I feel like I could run the country, become president. I feel very clearheaded, quite powerful in my mind. The protective instinct is very strong; you are not thinking about yourself, but for someone else all the time, putting them first. Pregnant women should be running the country. They should be in very important powerful places around the world."
- On what pregnancy does to her body: "Being pregnant is less about being sexy than being sensual. You feel very feminine. There are all these special hormonal enhancements. It’s like you’ve had all these operations done. You really blossom, especially in the first three months: my skin and my hair were in great condition; my breasts were like “wow”; it was like I’d had a facelift and breast-enhancement surgery. It’s amazing refinding the body that you used to have in your twenties, and you’re like, 'Oooh, I remember what it was like.'"
- On being pro-natural childbirth: "I wanted to give birth naturally at nine months. I’ve heard that some women these days book delivery by Caesarean early before their due date. I think a lot of them do it because of the fear of pain of a natural birth. But I think it’s important not to judge anyone, because motherhood is a very personal thing… There is a lot of pressure put on mothers in all areas. Everyone has their say on how and when you do things, just when you are feeling vulnerable, and it’s very hard to speak out."
- On why she thinks the hullabaloo over breast-feeding in public is ‘silly’: "Obviously you shouldn’t be pulling your breast out and showing it off in public, there are subtle ways of doing it."
- On why she’s glad she waited to have children in her thirties: "I would have been way too old to have a child if I was still living in the Czech Republic. But I am much more patient now, and I’ve had so many experiences. When you’re younger you have more energy, but less wisdom to pass on."

Beyoncé Knowles is the cover girl for Cosmopolitan UK's April issue, which also stars Sam Attwater as the naked centrefold. The singer has been enjoying Grammys fun, NBA All-Star games, and Caribbean holidays, but she made time to chat with the magazine about her seduction tips, advice to other women, and plans for a family. Here are the highlights:
- On her rules of seduction: "Put on good music and something that makes you feel great. I love a pair of high, sexy stilettos with a beautiful dress, but you have to find what works for you - whether it’s doing the whole smoky eyes thing or a natural look. And never be predictable. Mix it up, surprise him, change your hair - be the woman he knows with a little bit of a twist."
- On what makes a woman sexy: "The most alluring thing a woman can have is confidence. You can be beautiful but if you’re not secure in yourself, you don’t come across as sexy. You have to feel good about yourself to make others feel good about you… No one is perfect but everyone has the opportunity to make the best of themselves."
- On the women she admires most: "I love Halle Berry - she has great arms, and Kim Kardashian is gorgeous with all those curves. And Naomi Campbell has a fantastic body."
- On her advice to other women: "I want to say just two things. Learn the power of the word ‘no’… The other is something I learnt from Oprah Winfrey, which is visualising goals. Work out what you want from life, write those things down and look at them and believe you can attain them. I write down my goals and it definitely works for me."
- On the future and having a family: "My attitude is, there is always room for growth. I feel more comfortable about expressing myself, more in control and yes, I do want to embrace what happens next - and family. It’s funny how your outlook changes as you get older, how you look at life, at other women, in a different way. I have so much admiration for women who are mothers, who balance family and work… I do believe that it’s possible to have it all - work, a career, babies… It’s all a question of being very organised. That’s what I’m getting my head around."

Kate Winslet graced the cover of April's Glamour US in a tight dress by Hervé Léger, and she donned even more sexy looks in the accompanying spread from photographer Matthias Vriens-McGrath. She was named one of the magazine's 50 Most Glam along with other stars Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Gwyneth Paltrow — check out the full list at their site. Kate didn't join her famous counterparts at this weekend's Oscars, but she was apparently partly responsible for her Mildred Pierce costar, Melissa Leo's, profanity-laced acceptance speech. Kate opened up about her own Academy Award win, motherhood, and more in the issue, which is available on US newsstands March 8. She said:
- On plastic surgery: “No, I have never tried any of that stuff. I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.”
- On winning an Oscar: “I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasn’t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasn’t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.”
- On raising her children: “The challenge is making sure that they’re never treated different just because I sometimes am. I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky. The highest compliment I could ever receive about my kids — and I can say that this does happen frequently — is when the in-flight crew say to me, "Your children are wonderful. They are so well-behaved." Every time I am told that, I could weep.”
Robert Pattinson is on the April cover of Vanity Fair, and the magazine just released the cover with some teaser quotes from the article. He's starting to promote Water For Elephants, and his director in that movie spoke about Rob's connection with a certain costar, the elephant Tai, while Reese Witherspoon recounted another story about his crazy fans. Robert also spoke about Kristen Stewart, Twilight, his favourite candy, and why he respects Charlie Sheen. Here are highlights:
- On his relationship with Kristen: "It's just very traumatic. When [Twilight] is over, the media will lose interest [in the relationship]. There'll be nothing to say. It won't fit into a headline anymore. It won't fit into a template."
- On Kristen: "Kristen is very focused on being an actress. I mean, that's what she is—she's an actress. Whereas I—I just don't really know. She's cool. Even before I knew her I thought she was a really good actress. Like, I saw Into the Wild, and I thought she was really good in that. I still think there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is."
- On Tai the elephant: "She was the best actor I ever worked with in my life. I cried when the elephant was wrapped. I never cried when anyone else was wrapped."
- On being anonymous during his recent road trip: "No one recognized me or anything. And I was like, Ah, this is really cool, sitting there eating chicken wings and stuff. They always find out somehow."
- On his downtime: "I've just kind of stopped doing everything. I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of House of Payne and Two and a Half Men. I love Cops—I think it's my favorite TV show… God," he says, laughing, "I sound like such a loser."
- On Twilight: "There's nothing you can do about it. That's the way it is. But it is weird being part of that, kind of representing something you don't particularly like … God. I just really headbutted it. This thing with everyone knowing you … it's weird, because people have this one-sided relationship where they look at your picture and feel they know you more than someone they actually know. I don't really know myself that well. I can't really understand it even now. It does have an angle which is attached to something quite primal in girls. I guess people want it to define them, like 'I'm a Twilight fan.'… I think people really just like being part of a crowd. There's something just tremendously exciting about hyping yourself up to that level."
- On Charlie Sheen: "I like crazy people who don't give a f*ck."
- Reese Witherspoon on Rob mania: "I'd never seen anything like that, ever. They were waiting at five o'clock in the morning to see him. Young girls. Where are their mothers? I hear so many horror stories about young actors with attitude showing up late or hung over, and there wasn't any of that. He worked so hard."
- Director Francis Lawrence on Rob and Tai: "I wouldn't be surprised if Rob says the reason he took the movie was because of the elephant. He really fell in love."
