Dear Anna,

This is how you do a celebrity editorial. Love, your pal Glenda.

I kid. But not really. Kate Hudson is on the cover of this month's issue of Harper's Bazaar. This is a perfect example of how to put a celebrity in a fashion magazine. Anna Wintour and friends: take note.

The cover is clean, it's fresh and Kate Hudson looks lovely.











Like I said, this is how you do a celebrity editorial. It has personality and doesn't sacrifice fashion. It's not crazy edgy but still perfectly on trend and featuring amazing pieces. Everything is wearable and she's likeable and relateable (oh stars, they're just like us..except for wearing Dior to a cafeteria lunch and Prada to pump gas). Besides the cover story/editorial on Kate, the rest of the magazine is 100 percent satisfying. Thank you Glenda Bailey, for giving me my money's worth.

  6. You're absolutely right. The pictures are stunning too.

    Yay Bazaar. Now I wish I'd bought it instead of Marie Claire the other night.

  7. She was also on the cover of Elle UK recently and looked completely unrecognizable with black eyeliner. I know what you mean about keeping them 'normal' as opposed to overly edgy (though in their defence, Elle UK currently has a gorgeous pic of Natalie Portman on the cover). Lovely editorial, I agree!

    But to be honest, I'd love to see models take back the center stage when it comes to fashion mag covers. I think celebrities get enough media exposure as it is. It's probably what I love most about Vogue Paris.

  8. this editorial is perfect! i love how it's completely age appropriate and wonderfully shot - and how cute is her son? great job bazaar! ... too bad they've put miley on their cover last month... that's a misstep. :/

  12. you are so right. this is completely perfect.

    usually celeb features in fashion mags are a snooze, but this one is gorgeous, and probably way more fun for the celebrity too, since they get to do something fun and different.

    love it!

    thanks for sharing.

    p.s. you're welcome for sticking up for you the other day... that's what blog friends are for :). besides...somebody's got to put all the douches in the world in their place.

  14. Pumping gas, eating at the cafeteria and doing laundry never looked so glamorous.

  19. Kate looks awesome in NINE. And that girl can sing.
    I'm not understanding what Anna Wintour is doing right now...her mag covers are looking more like Good Housekeeping

  22. she looks stunning! glowing and bubbly and she makes even pumping gas look glam. those legs are so toned and they go on forever...girl crush...

    that cover is incredible, especially in contrast to that horrid rachel mcadams cover you showed us before.

  23. I definitely agree, this is how to do it, not that drab Rachel McAdams cover! - Natalya of Wear Necessities

  24. I love Kate Hudson- she's such a fun-loving naturally beautiful woman! I esp. love the photo of her in the back of the taxi. And I just saved the black and white shot of her crossing the street - totally want my wedding dress to look like that! Do you know who made her dress? xo, Mel

  28. i love this spread. i need to pick up a copy. can you believe the next hb issue features miley cyrus, though? >.<

  29. I am a magazine-whore myself and I could not agree more! I'm always thinking about these kinds of things and this is a beautiful editorial. ELLE and ELLE Canada do a good job of this usually... VOGUE needs HELP! We should start VOGUE Canada and show 'em how it's really done :)

  40. I completely agree, this editorial is stunning and realistic.. Australian editors need to see this! It really shows the similiarities and the differences between 'real' people and celebrities... they do all the same things we do in a day.. but they are almost forced to do it differently and live up to an expectation because they are 'famous'.. i love it.

  41. i LOVE this...it shows her in natural state! She's GORGEOUS! I loved her in Bride Wars & How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days!

  42. KAWAII!!!
