Lindsey Wixson Covers Flare's September 2012 Issue

Lindsey Wixson is Flare magazine's September 2012 cover girl. The supermodel is featured on the cover wearing a stunning, metallic gold Prabal Gurung dress. She is accessorized with earrings by Laruicci and a ring by Cocoa Jewelry. The editorial features Wixson wearing looks from Prada, Rodarte, Altuzarra and J.W. Anderson.

Inside the 18-year-old talks about everything from listening to 90s music (it should be noted Lindsey was born in 1994), how hard it is to make friends with models, maintaining her image and never forgetting where she came from.

Lindsey on her model friendships: Most of the time I am having fun, but a lot of the times it’s overwhelming. I did the Oscar de la Renta show for resort recently and I didn’t know many of the girls. Everyone has their friends and people who they talk to. I sit back and do my own thing. I mainly talk to girls from my agency because I know them and always see them. It’s kind of hard to get to know the other girls.

Lindsey on staying true to her morals: The people around me -- especially my parents and my sister, who give me input. I try to visit them every month or every other month, but I’ve been so busy with work. I want to make them proud and I try to keep it pretty modest. The fashion industry always wants something else out of you and you can decide if you want to fall into that or maintain your morals and stay true to yourself. I always think about what the people from my hometown would think of some of my shoots. I care about what my family thinks -- they wouldn’t want to see my boobs printed everywhere.

The issue hits stands in August. What do you think of Lindsey's Cover?

Ashley Greene Covers Nylon's August 2012 Issue

Ashley Greene is a two time cover girl in the month of August. Not only is the Twilight star featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan, but she also shines on the cover of Nylon magazine next month. The brunette beauty is featured on the magazine's denim issue cover looking causal chic wearing a black Moschino vintage blazer, A What Goes Around Comes Around tee and bandana paired with Element cut-off shorts and Dsquared2 shoes. The 25-year-old dishes on dating and the tabloids, her past modeling days and her instant fame thanks to Twilight.

Ashley on dating and the tabloids: “Imagine going out with a girl one night, then the next day she’s like, ‘We’re hooking up! This is serious!  It’s this overload of someone saying, ‘This is what this is, even though we’ve only been on one date and I don’t even know your middle name.’ Everything has a title immediately.”

Ashley on her modeling days before becoming the face of DKNY: “I knew I was never going to be a supermodel. I mean, I’m 5'5"—it’s not going to happen unless you’re Kate Moss, which I’m not. And until you hit a certain level in the modeling world, it’s really rough: You’re never tall enough, you’re never thin enough, there’s always another girl. It just wasn’t for me anymore.”

Ashley on her instant Twilight fame: “Right when I was cast, my IMDb STARmeter [a chart that tracks actors based on how many searches are done on them] went through the roof—all of ours did, and we hadn’t even done anything yet! Now I have to remind myself that not everything is always going to be like that.”

Kristen Wiig Covers Marie Claire's August 2012 Issue

Kristen Wiig is featured on the cover of Marie Claire's August 2012 issue wearing a sleek, white, Tom Ford suit and Bulgari gems. Inside the 38-year-old former Saturday Night Live actress talks about leaving the show after seven years. Kirsten also dishes on her relationship with Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti and her love of rainy days.

Kristen on leaving SNL: “I know a lot of people probably assume, ‘Oh, she’s leaving because she is going to be doing movies now and things like that,’ which I will be. But I just always knew it was going to be seven and that was it. I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time. [Still], it was very emotional. I just wanted to get through it without breaking down in every sketch. Because nothing says comedy like breaking down.”

Kristen on her relationship with Fabrizio: "I will say that I'm happier than I've ever been and I feel very lucky right now. Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones."

Kristen on her love of rainy days: "I love the rain. It's my favorite weather. I feel like it cleans the city a little bit."

You can read more with Kristen when the issue hits stands on July 17th.

Kate Beckinsale Covers Glamour UK's August 2012 Issue

Kate Beckinsale is Glamour UK's August 2012 cover girl. Inside, the Total Recall star talks about having another baby, the pressure the media places on celebrity mom's and their bodies, beauty and growing older.

Kate on having another baby: "There's absolutely part of me that goes, 'I'd love to have a baby in the relationship I'm in, and have that experience when the relationship's really good and exclusive,' but I'm just not sure. At some point the decision will be made for me, when my ovaries dry up and die. We'll see. There's nothing that makes me go, 'And now I must have triplets!'"

Kate on beauty: "I feel like beauty is a gift that you have for a while, and you enjoy the hell out of it while you have it. And if you’re lucky enough to have a daughter and you give it to her, you enjoy the fact she has it. My mother was always very, very beautiful – she still is, in her sixties. I’m sure she feels, 'Wouldn’t it be nice if my neck did this?' but not to the degree of cutting parts of herself odd and dragging them behind her ears. I feel very similar. I much prefer how my mother looks to the people I see here [in Los Angeles] with wind-tunnel face,"

Kate on the pressure that the media places on celebrity mom's to regain their figures: "There’s an obsessional hatred of normal human processes. Pregnancy changes and woman’s body and should. It isn’t normal to not look like you’ve had a baby immediately after you’ve had a baby. I was gigantic after I had Lily – I put on a good 3 ½ stone, and it didn’t go ‘til I stopped breast feeding… I was lucky that Britain wasn’t so paparazzi-orientated [then]. I was allowed to get on with it and enjoy my baby – and figure out what being a mother was all about instead of worrying about [fitting into] my f**king jeans..."

Ashley Greene Covers Cosmopolitan's August 2012 Issue

Ashley Greene is featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan's August 2012 issue wearing a floral print, Minkpink bustier and light pink Rich & Skinny jeans. Inside, the Twilight star talks about her career, avoiding the Hollywood scene and all the craziness, but also marriage and love.

Ashley on her career: "I'm looking for things that are going to push boundaries. I want to work with directors I know get great performances and actors who force me to up my game," she says. "Hopefully, I'll be able to find that."

Ashley on getting married: “I’m not one of those girls who sits at home thinking, 'By 25, I have to be married.' Right now, I’m like I’m 25, I need to book my next movie! My parents have such a beautiful marriage. I’m not someone who takes it lightly. So I’m not going to get married until I know I’ll be with someone forever.”

Ashley on whether she has a type: "It's about chemistry and a connection. I've changed so much over the past 10 years. What I wanted when I was 16, I didn't want when I was 20, and that's changed to something else now that I'm 25. Having a type is not for me."

Ashley on the crazy Hollywood scene: "In this industry, it's easy to get sidetracked by the glitz. But there are certain precautions you can take. Look, if you go out to a club, you're going to be written about."

Rose Byrne Covers Flare's August 2012 Issue

Rose Byrne graces the cover of Flare's August 2012 issue wearing a radiant, red Marchesa gown paired with a Aurélie Bidermann cuff. The Marchesa gown is the same one that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Berlin premiere of the Hunger Games. The Bridesmaids star talks about her red carpet fashion rule book, her casual style and working with the late Heath Ledger.

Rose on her red carpet style rules: "I think for the red carpet in general it’s important to keep it youthful. A lot of people can look very dressed up and old and severe. That’s sort of my worst fear, is erring on that side.”

Rose on her casual fashion style: "I go through phases, but I mostly dress in high street clothing, like Urban Outfitters. Every day, really. My [best recent purchase was my] Zara boots … they get so many compliments. They’re great walking shoes, perfect for the city.”

Rose on working with Heath Ledger: “I’m so proud of that film [1999’s Two Hands]. It’s an Australian classic. Heath is so beautiful in it … they couldn’t have made it without him. We were just kids making that movie.”

Rose on her role in Damages: “It totally changed my life. I wouldn’t have got all those [subsequent] films if I hadn’t been on that show.”

Mila on dating rumors: “Ninety-nine percent of it is bulls–t. That is the biggest form of bullying ever, the paparazzi. Printing lies, making accusations, it’s just bullying.”

Mila on feeling pressure to have a baby: “This isn’t the right time for me to have one, but I do want a family. I’d rather be in love and have a baby than have a movie.”

Mila on online dating: “One of my really good friends met her fiancé on an OkCupid-style website. OkCupid’s really popular—all my girlfriends have joined. I love those sites. I go on and I pick the guys for my friends. I think it’s great. It’s online shopping! We all get together with our laptops and have a glass of wine. Then we message the guy.”
