Courtney Love is looking healthier than ever on the new issue of FASHION magazine.
Love dishes on style, her upcoming book, and what she thinks of the artists of today.
Check out some of her Fashion interview quotes below.
On her life as a style icon:
“I got ostracized by [fashion] after I went to rehab in 2006. After I got out, no one would dress me and I sucked it up. I went to Paris, got on a plane and I was only invited to two shows. Two shows! YSL and Stella. Then I met my stylist Panos [Yipanis], who got me to sit down with Riccardo Tisci and he was more than happy to dress me during the biggest weight gain of my life. He renewed my faith in fashion… It’s really about who you surround yourself with in your career. The next time I went back to Paris was in 2008 and I got invited to a hundred shows and the minute [Givenchy creative director] Riccardo [Risci] said, ‘she is my muse,’ everyone threw clothes at me. That’s just fashion 0 it’s such a reactive community.”
On her upcoming autobiography:
“I keep wanting to write this one chapter about a man that I was very much in love with but I just don’t want to name him. I used pseudonyms like Mr. Cat – this guy who was a billionaire and our relationship ended weird.”
On her views on now rock stars:
“Being a rock star today is almost like a politician. You have a platform where you can say things and the good ones like [Bruce] Springsteen, [Michael] Stipe, and Bone use it for good politics.”
Those infamous Olsen Twins cover the new issue of THE EDIT magazine.
Mary-Kate and Ashley have gone from childhood stars to adult fashion designers. They chatted with the magazine about their fashion careers, dealing with the paps, and fame.
On The Row:
We saw a space in the market. We knew there wasn’t another brand offering basics in a luxurious and contemporary way. If I wear certain designer brands, or too much of something, I look crazy, and I need something to break it up. If you are wearing a Chanel jacket and you need an anonymous piece that will show just how special that jacket is, I hope that is what The Row gives you,”
On becoming famous at a young age:
“We were nine months old when we started, so fame has always been part of our lives. There wasn’t any weirdness where we decided that we want to be famous. Then as we got older, we were very fortunate that we could hire and work with amazing people who want to protect us.”
On dealing with the paps:
“There is a threshold in New York, and once you pass that and are considered a New Yorker, they leave you alone. But we’re at the office every day, then home or out for dinner, so there aren’t the opportunities for them to take pictures. For the most part you try and avoid it… [I do] at least.”
On fashion and their career:
“We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite. So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession.”

Washington dishes on the similarities and differences between her and her Scandal character in a feature titled “”Olivia Vs. Kerry.”
On Olivia’s fashion style:
“Olivia has three [fashion] modes: Work Olivia, Black-Tie Gala Olivia and At Home Olivia…
On her fashion style:
My fashion is more eclectic: There’s Going to Work Kerry, which is gym clothes and Nike kicks. That’s the Bronx girl. There’s also Red Carpet Kerry and Out to Dinner With Friends Kerry.”
On what a Girls’ Night Out for Olivia would be:
“it would involve a lot of wine.”
On what a Girls’ Night Out for Washington would be:
“I drink maybe twice a year. I would be with my three best friends from high school or my girlfriends from the show.”
Look for Washington to appear on today’s episode (Oct. 3) of ABC’s The View; check your local listings for air times. Season 3 of Scandal premieres tonight on ABC.

Miley Cyrus must be doing something right, because she’s on the cover of yet another magazine.
The “Wrecking Ball” singer covers the November issue of FASHION magazine.
Cyrus dishes on her VMAs performance, her critics, taking advice from Pharrell Williams and much more.
Check out some snippets from her interview below.
On her discerning taste in fashion:
“I can go through so many clothes say ‘no, that’s not me’ right away. I’m so adamant and controlling and OCD about my work that I can scare some people—especially when it comes to clothes. I have a very specific style of my own and I think it is better to be stylish than trendy. I find vintage Celine or Chanel and mix it with athletic or vintage pieces makes a look modern and fresh. Vintage makes everything look punk.”
On MTV censoring her VMA performance:
“I was trying to slap Robin’s ass but no one saw it! Believe me! MTV edited so much. They cut almost everything I did. I’m proud of that performance. I feel like music is really stale right now. I could have guessed what a lot of artists would have done that night. The reaction to what I did has been insane. I think it was a breath of fresh air! For the people that don’t get it, you weren’t meant to.”
On critics and her “competition:”
“I feel like I’m in a different lane now. When it comes to critics, I have my blinders on and I don’t really feel like I have to compete with other pop artists. I never think, ‘oh this performance is going to make her look bad or out-shadow her’ either but if there is no competition, there would be no reason for any of us to show up to work. At an office, everyone is trying to be boss. Pop music is the same. What I wear adds a factor that other girls can’t compete with.”
On “Drive”—a new song that alludes to her relationship with ex-boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth:
“I wrote it while I was working on Valentine’s Day—emotionally it was such a hard time. It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t. It’s also about moving on.”
On the artists who fuel her vision:
“Terry Richardson shot my video for “Wrecking Ball” and he’s about capturing strength versus beauty. His women look so strong in his images. I was so inspired by [photographer] Ryan McGinley’s work too [for the video to “We Can’t Stop“]-especially a series where he shot all these the girls coming out of trees. Having artist Todd James create all the teddy bears for the VMAs was a thrill too—it was one of the things I was hoping people would focus on. I was hoping some would think, ‘Miley may be out there shaking her ass and having fun but she’s got some intelligence.’ Some people just saw the teddy bears but they didn’t look into the details. We had [faux] Picasso paintings going by the stage too. People who want to open their eyes can see something bigger in my work.”
On taking style advice from Pharrell Williams:
“I found what I wore on the red carpet to the VMAs with Pharrell. It was a Dolce and Gabbana piece from 1992—the year I was born. He saw it and said, ‘you have to buy it.’ I think that outfit added a factor that the other girls couldn’t compete with. Pharrell says it’s not about what you’re wearing; it’s the way you wear it. That was a lesson I took to heart. I think it is important that I execute a look better than other people. Fashion is what separates me from everyone else.”

In the newest issue of REDBOOK, Jennifer Lopez gives her ‘3 Lessons in Sexy from JLO.’
Lopez has made strides in fashion since hitting the scene in the 90s, now she’s sharing some tips and tricks when it comes to wardrobe. Check out her quick tips below.
Balance a loose shape with flirty fabric.
“My favorite blouses are flowy with touches of sheer material, so you see skin through it. They’re sexy in an easy, effortless way.”
On ignoring the age police when it comes to fashion:
“I don’t care who thinks I’m not the right age for something. Right now, I’m in love with leather pants! If you have the legs for a short skirt and can pull it off, do it. When it doesn’t feel right to you anymore, you’ll know it’s time to stop.”
On her golden ratio rule of fashion:
“If you’re showing a lot of leg, don’t do cleavage. If your dress is tight, it shouldn’t be short. You cross the line into trashy when you reveal a lot.”
