Quote Me: Victoria Beckham On Life

For the first time, I feel like what you see is what you get. This is me: the more natural hair, the slightly more relaxed way of dressing. I feel really content personally and professionally. I’m not freaked out about getting older. I’m growing older with the most amazing man I’ve ever met - with my soul mate. Life’s great.

Could Last Year's Dip In Magazine Newsstand Sales Mark The Beginning Of The End?

We all know that printed publications are slowing coming to the end of their era, as their online versions take centre stage. It seems, however, that this end could come sooner than we had thought. WWD reports that newsstand sales of some magazines had dropped during the second half of last year, which shows that not even Vogue can escape the wrath of the big 'R'. Indeed, Vogue has seen a 15.1-percent dip in single-copy sales, whilst Allure and Marie Claire have lost 17.2 and 14.6 percent in sales, respectively. Elle, however, fared much better in comparison to the others, having only suffered a 0.2-percent decrease.

Behind The Scenes With Amy Adams

Allure opens up this month with a behind-the-scenes look at Amy Adams' August cover shoot, and we're pretty entertained at the style transformation the 'Julie & Julia' star makes. Of this Dior Haute Couture gown - the closing dress for Spring '09 - the actress says: "This is nothing compared to the one I wore for 'Enchanted'. That dress had a life of its own."

To see more insider looks from the shoot, photographed by Michael Thompson in Dublin, visit Allure online.

Cindy Crawford Is in No Mood for Bread

Carb-haters unite! Cindy Crawford destroys an innocent loaf for this Michael Thompson shoot in the April issue of US Allure.

When she's not ripping baked goods, the 43-year-old model shows that, well, she's not ageing much. The shoot gets pretty racy, with one 'look' consisting of nothing more than skin creams.

Side note: my university grammar teacher (yes, grammar) went to high school with Crawford in Illinois. She described her old classmate as 'just another farm girl', or something like that. These pictures say otherwise.
