This Season’s Covers Hint at What’s New in Fall Fashion

Elle Magazine September 2012With the entrance of fall onto the fashion stage, we’re taking a look at some fashion-forward magazine covers to get a glimpse of what to expect.

It’s officially the last week of summer, and that means temperatures are dropping, pumpkin lattes are back on the menu and fall fashions are making their seasonal debut. With New York’s Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week full of spring 2013 looks behind us, we’re watching to see how the fall 2012 runway looks will translate to the everyday.

Giving a glimpse into this season’s trends are the covers of fashion-forward magazines like Elle, InStyle and Seventeen. Covering the September issue of Elle–the magazine’s biggest fashion issue of the year–is a pretty in pink Katy Perry. The cover promises more than 600 pages of “the best dresses, jackets, ideas, shoes and bags.”

Perry is edgy-chic in a tight, light pink dress embellished with unique sequins on the bodice and the shoulders. Her dark hair is streaked purple and her nails are painted in black and white Yin-Yangs. On her left wrist, her tattoo shows fairly prominently. The bad girl look is a bit of a juxtaposition to the clean feel of her pastelle-colored frock. This look is not atypical of the season, as we’ve seen celebrities like Heidi Klum streak her hair pink. It’s a time in fashion when the goal seems to be letting in a bit of the edge without forfeiting the class.

JLo is smokin’ hot on the cover of this month’s InStyle. Hinting to the natural colors of autumn are her Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci top and skirt in a deep red accented with black. Even her nails are a fiery red, harkening back to the tension between the classy lady and the adventurer. The 652-page issue promises the best trends and how to wear them, as well as a “fall bag and boot blowout.”

On the younger scene, Canadian model/actress Nina Dobrev covers the October issue of Seventeen. True to Seventeen style, Dobrev is tipping the scales more on the sweetly innocent side rather than following suit with the dangerous damsal featured on other covers. Sporting pinks, oranges and reds in a scarfed sweater and shiny skirt, Dobrev covers the issue that promisees “The best fall clothes under $20.”

If you want to dig into the styles of these fashion-heavy issues, you can get these titles and more at an extreme discounts right now on Magazines.com.

InStyle Covergirl Jennifer Aniston Comes to Terms with Aging While Finding Love Again

Our favorite “Friends” alum is covering InStyle again, which is a wise choice for the magazine, considering she’s a bestselling celebrity face for the magazine industry. Why do we love Aniston so? Perhaps because we just want to see her find happiness again.

Jennifer Aniston doesn’t need a holiday like Valentine’s Day to make her feel special. Thanks to her “Wanderlust” costar and real-life beau Justin Theroux, the actress, feels celebrated year-round. Covering the March issue of InStyle, she assures the magazine that this time, she knows what she wants in  relationship.

“Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle for.” Wise words for those single folks out there who might be settling.

Hard-won wisdom often comes with time, something the 43-year-old realizes has passed by very quickly, even with the help of facials and the like. While she’s “fascinated” by dermatology–”skin, products, lasers…I call it ‘laser porn’”–Aniston’s happy to stick with her day job, though, she realizes she’s got some serious company from the younger set.

She confesses, “You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and I think, Aren’t we kind of the same age? You lose perspective.”

From time to time, the age-defying stunner is offered the part of the older woman in a film or one with a teenaged child. Aniston says, “It’s like, ‘I’m not old enough to have a 17-year-old!’ And then you realize, well, yeah, you are.”

But don’t waste your time worrying for America’s Sweetheart. She knows she’s still got it going on. “Young? I don’t feel my age. I feel young every day.”

See the ever-young Aniston along with Theroux and Paul Rudd in the comedy “Wanderlust” when it hits theaters February 24.
