All On The Cover: Jennifer Aniston Covers GQ

Jennifer Aniston is not shy.

Wearing nothing but a necktie in the January issue of GQ magazine, she not only bares her soul about the current state of her relationship with ex-husband Brad Pitt, she bares just about every inch of her body, before she turns the big 4-0.

Aniston is sandwiched between two seemingly naked men. The star of the upcoming movie Marley & Me tells GQ that while the two are hardly best friends, they do still keep in touch. Inside, there’s a candid interview in which Aniston calls her relationship with Angelina Jolie and Pitt an “insane Bermuda Triangle.”

Below are more photos of Jennifer Aniston.

“When there’s something to congratulate or celebrate, there’s an exchange,” she tells the magazine. “But there’s no charge on it.” There is, however, quite a charge in the racy photos Aniston posed for, wearing nothing but a red, white and blue tie, reclining on the ground between two buff boys.

It’s hard to believe the former “Friends” star is 39 years old. The “body” part, at least, is quite apparent.

She jokingly continues: “The funny thing is that people don’t realize we all go away to the Hamptons on the weekends … No. But can you imagine? That’d be hysterical: I’ve got Zahara on my hip, and Knox …” she said, referring to two of Jolie and Pitt’s six — and counting — kids.

But she says she and Pitt do speak from time to time: “When there’s something to congratulate or celebrate, there’s an exchange. But there’s no charge on it.”

More of what she said in the interview:

On looking jaw-dropping at 39: “I feel more comfortable today than I ever did in my 20s or early 30s,” she said. “I’m healthier. I’m more at peace in my mind and with my body.”

On her on-again boyfriend John Mayer: “Honestly, did not know much about him before I met him. I’d heard … you know, uh, ‘Your Body’ – that song. But what I can say is that I had no idea what an extraordinary musician he is. And it’s just great to sit and be witness to that. It’s kind of like, Whoa!”

On the rumors surrounding pregnancy and marriage: “I am not having his baby. And I have not popped the question.”

On Aniston’s current work on the film, “Pumas,” which she calls “sort of a female ‘Wedding Crashers’” about two “aspiring cougars”: “It is so a comment on the sexual double standard, and what’s been ironic is how hard it’s been to get this movie made,” she says. “Studios want it, but they are afraid of Middle America. They’d want to change it; they’re saying, ‘Oh, you can’t do that, people just can’t imagine you …’”

On female movie roles in Hollywood: “Look, I think all women on some level just want to rage against the machine,” she says. “There are too many movies out there that don’t empower women, movies in which their only way of being happy is finding a man. And you know, that’s not my favorite theme.”

The January issue of GQ hits newsstands December 23. Excerpts of the cover story appeared in the New York Post, People.com, JustJared.com and wowowow.com.

Aniston isn’t the only piece of the “Bermuda Triangle” running her mouth. Brad Pitt recently spoke to Rolling Stone. In the interview he says that he and his partner Jolie don’t fight. Pitt says, “I don’t want to waste time being angry at someone I love.”

Designer Spotlight: Common “Softwear”

09_common_lgl

So here’s a fashion collab we never saw coming: Rapper Common has partnered with Microsoft to create a clothing line called Softwear.

Microsoft’s soft launch party for Softwear, the company’s new line of graphic tees designed by hip-hop artist Common and “inspired by the 1980s when both Microsoft and hip-hop really came of age.” The software giant’s foray into fashion is intended to conjure a sense of nostalgic hipness around the brand, while reacting to the “I’m a PC” stereotype made popular by Apple. The shirts (which hit select stores in the US on Dec 15) incorporate old DOS iconography, geek vernacular, and a retro-futuristic aesthetic into some surprisingly stylish designs. Softwear’s two lines – Classic and Common’s designs – can be previewed at Microsoft’s Softwear site where viewers can also learn about the impetus and story behind the concept, narrated by Common.

In the words of Common, shirts that make you go, “Man, this is incredible artwork and I want to wear this and I want it to reflect beauty, creativity and humanity…look fly but say something, too. So some of the shirts got messages, some of it bring…all of it got a purpose.”

The t-shirts are expected to retail for around $32 a pop.

Designer Spotlight: Sofia Coppola For Louis Vuitton

Sofia Coppola Bags And Shoes For Louis Vuitton

sofia-coppola-bags-shoes-collection-louis-vuitton

Sofia Coppola “created” a bag for Louis Vuitton. As a film director, I wouldn’t have troubles imagining how she managed to design something, like Sofia herself admits:

”I am able to ask people to make exactly as I would”.

But saying that the perfect bag doesn’t exist is an offense to the rest of the consumerism world who finds the perfect “something” at least once a month! Now you should all know that this perfect bag is called SC Louis Vuitton and it comes in gray suede, burgundy, blue calf leather and monogram canvas (appx $2,200).

So not only she’s truly creative and a fashion current consumer (to say that the perfect bag doesn’t exist, you really have to up to date with everything that has been done in the matter!), she also reinvented the wheel! Making an evening clutch with a mirror inside, now, there’s got to be only 40 % of the (serious) evening bags of the world that don’t have one!

The miracle clutches come in the same colors as the bags, plus a golden version. (appx $1,100). And you have to consider the brilliant cut of an Yves Saint Laurent shoe (originally made in the 70s and belonging to Sofia’s mother) redesigned (like we’d actually search and confront too see how much re-designed was applied to it!) and signed Louis Vuitton (appx $1,100)!Oh, isn’t this fashion in its truly pure form? Let’s see who’d be willing to pay $2,200 for a LV without LV allover it! (via iht.com, wwd)
