Actress Eva Longoria is covered in crystals for the December issue of Spanish ELLE.
The former Desperate Housewives star sports a nude bodysuit adorned with strategically placed Swarovski crystals.
Longoria on doing the cover:

Lea Michele fronts the Decemeber issue of ELLE magazine.
The GLEE star opens up about how she’s coping after the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith, hiding from the cameras and how Kate Hudson helped her maintain her privacy.
On getting through Cory’s passing:
“I never thought I would be in this position in my whole life. Now that I am in this position, you can choose to rise, and that’s what I’m going to try to do. I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people.”
On Kate Hudson helping her following Cory Monteith’s death:
“I called [Kate Hudson] and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”
On going away from the cameras:
“It’s very hard. And you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”
Marion Cotillard and Naomie Harris cover separate editions of ELLE magazine’s ‘Beauties in Hollywood’ issue.
This issue is dedicated to the women of Hollywood who are making strides on and off the big screen.
On being an actress:
“When I was a kid, I started to have a lot of questions about human beings, and I was a troubled child because of all of these questions. I guess that’s why I became an actress. Not only because my parents were actors and, yeah, it’s a beautiful thing to tell stories, but I think I became an actress because I wanted to explore this- to explore what a human being is.”
Naomi Harris –
On standing up for herself:
“On my first film, I played a stowaway on a ship heading to Germany, and the director told me I was going to be thrown into the sea. But he didn’t have any stunt coordinators! I told him I would agree to be pushed over the side, but only if I could watch him getting pushed over first. Both of us stayed dry.”
Lady Gaga‘s triumphant return to music is marked with a feature in ELLE magazine.
In the October issue of the magazine, Gaga reveals why she ‘change’ her name, how she handles pressure and more. She even discusses her past struggles in life.
Gaga was photographed by Ruth Hogben for this feature.
Check out some of Gaga’s ELLE interview below.
On how she handles pressure:
“What are you talking about, pressure? I’m great under pressure. I’m a warrior. I’m Rocky, round 12.”
On her past struggles:
“Everyone is so cynical – that I can’t purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking if I really truly struggled. Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?”
On her return to music:
“I went to look back to myself being 19, with all my Warhol books and all my Yoko Ono and John Lennon CDs, my Rolling Stones CDs and my Bowie… and I said, what would she want me to do right now? Well she’d want you to call Jeff Koons and Robert Wilson and Marina Abramovic and Inez and Vinoodh… and that’s what I did!”
On who and how she is off stage:
“I am – Stefani is – a perpetually tortured artist. That’s why I changed my name. I can’t be her in public. She would be a mess!”
MAC has a brand new artsy collection on the way.
MAC Cosmetics’ forthcoming makeup collection, pays homage to fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez. Lopez would constantly create illustrations of Supermodels Marisa Berenson, Jerry Hall, and Pat Cleveland (also known as “Antonio’s Girls”) in Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue during the 1970s.
MAC selected six of his drawings to feature on the packaging on lip, eye, face palettes,makeup bags and accessories.
“Our collection with Antonio Lopez is symbolic of a time when indulgence was at its peak,” explains James Gager, creative director of MAC Cosmetics. “There was a magic to his world and a time in history that hasn’t been recaptured; I think people are lusting after that glamour, which is difficult to come by today.” The collection hits MAC stores in September.
The collection consists of MAC Antonio Lopez Lips ($27.50), MAC Antonio Lopez Eyes, ($43.50) and MAC Antonio Lopez Face ($46) products. Additionally, the collection offers a pouch, large tote bag and a two-way pocket mirror with the same Lopez images on them.
