Chanel Iman X Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.

I can remember back in the day when Chanel would grace the covers of Teen Vogue, and how whenever she was featured in the pages of the magazines, I’d be so happy for her and feel as though I was somehow living vicariously through her. I loved that we looked a little similar and how close in age we were – it almost felt like we were best friends.

Bling thing: The jet-setter showed off statement earrings as she filled the pages of the glossy read

Hard worker: Chanel has appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue, Vogue, Allure, Elle, i-D, Italian Vanity Fair, and Pop. She has also modeled for Bottega Veneta, GAP, Ralph Lauren, Express and DKNY

Over the years I’ve watched her career blossom and though I’m no longer living vicariously through her, I’m still always just as happy for her whenever I see her do something new.

Stunning: Iman started modeling with Ford Models at the age of 13 as a child model in Los Angeles

Horsing around: She lay across the horse's man as she posed for another sultry shot 

High achiever: The Southern beauty has also appeared on several TV shows, including The Tyra Banks Show, House Of Style and American's Next Top Model

Chanel covers the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and as always, she looks fab. For me especially, I think it’s such a big deal she’s not only featured in BUT covers a middle-eastern magazine, whose culture favours those with white skin. So to see Chanel (who is also part Korean), a black model on the cover of such a magazine in such a region, brings me great pride and a little tear to my eye.

Reigns supreme: Rising star, Chanel Iman looks incredible as she models high fashion outfits alongside a beautiful horse for the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar Arabia magazine 

All the glamour: The shoot took place at royal-owned Z7 International Showjumping, Polo & Riding Stables in the heart of Dubai and was styled by Katie Trotter, with photography by Silja Magg

The mane attraction: This rose-printed gown added a theatrical feel to the shoot as she patted her new pal

Going the distance: Switching into a series of different looks, the beautiful catwalk star also wears a pretty white dress which is embellished with sequin flowers throughout, teaming it with black headwear

No I know I must say this a lot, but Chanel really is one of my really good friends in my head.

Taylor Swift X GQ.

My best friend in my head aka Taylor Swift (isn’t she every girl’s best friend in their head though?) features on the November issue of GQ magazine, and girl is getting it! (Okay so that sounded a lot a better in my head lol). I don’t really talk about Tay Tay as much as I talk about some of my other celeb friends, but I’ve been a massive fan of hers since Red – OMG THAT ALBUM WAS EVERYTHING AND IT SERIOUSLY CHANGED MY LIFE – and even though I haven’t with everything she’s done, I always love to see her doing well and achieving her dreams.

Cover girl: Taylor Swift scintillated in a clinging number as she was revealed on the cover of GQ Magazine for the first time on Thursday

She truly is such an inspiration and I love her more and more every day. Not a bad way to end the week. Happy Friday.

Taraji P. Henson X Allure.

Ms Henson is Allure magazine’s July cover girl, and she is totally rocking it!

Cover girl: Taraji smoulders for Allure's July issue, turning heads in a revealing red number

If you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of months, you won’t know that Taraji is one of the leads on my favourite show Empire. She plays Cookie Lyon, the matriarch (I don’t like the term but now is neither the time nor place to go into details about it) who has just been released from serving seventeen years in prison. For more details on the show you had better watch it and find out for yourself.

Smoking hot: The Empire star poses in a series of plunging gowns 

I’ve always found her striking and mesmerising, but this cover is just S T U N N I N G. I can’t wait for Empire to come back in September.

Olivia Palermo X Elle Vietnam.

Kind of old news but these pictures were too beautiful to not share. There’s really no denying that Olivia is a worldwide style icon, so it’s great to see her covering the latest issue of Elle Vietnam.

Elle Australia X Olivia Palermo.

Every time I read or see anything regarding Olivia Palermo, I’m instantly reminded of my desperate desire to be her best friend. She’s incredibly down to earth, hands down one of THE most stylish women in the world, and she just seems like she’d be a really cool girl to hang out with.

October issue: The photoshoot appeared in this month's issue of Elle Australia

Puckering up: The blonde beauty looked happy to play around for the camera and pulled a range of funny faces

In her interview with Elle Australia, Olivia talks about staying grounded and appreciative of life, as well as the fact that her assistant is in college and that her studies come before helping out Ms Palermo, which I thought was pretty cute and totally understanding on Olivia’s part. Anyway, I’ll leave these stunning pictures to say the rest.

Beautiful: Olivia Palermo looked absolutely flawless in a photoshoot for the October issue of Elle Australia 

Down-to-earth: Olivia wore a range of outfits for the photoshoot which took place while her and model husband Johannes Huebl visited Australia in August

Sixties chic! The 28-year-old rocked a white shirt dress with over the knee Gucci boots

Truly such a great inspiration.
