“Glee” star Lea Michele has a cover and editorial in the March issue of Prestige Hong Kong; in it, she models opulent fashion curated by stylist Paris Libby for the expert lens of photographer Darren Tieste. Michele rocks frocks from Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford and Versace, and a killer beweled bodysuit by Dolce & Gabbana.
In the accompanying interview, Michele talks about her 14 tattoos, the many opportunities “Glee” has enabled and her reality television addiction. “The great thing about ‘Glee’ is that it has opened up so many doors for me to just show people that true beauty, inner beauty and whatever uniqueness your external beauty really is, is accepted and is cool and is what makes you unique,” she said. She also admits to loving “mindless” entertainment, especially reality shows like “Hoarders” and “Say Yes to the Dress.”

“Gossip Girl” actress Leighton Meester revealed new details about her hardscrabble upbringing in the April 2012 issue of Marie Claire. Both of Meester’s parents have served time in jail; she even spent her first few months after birth in a halfway house before living with her grandmother.
Despite these troubles, you won’t hear Meester bash her childhood. “You can take what is handed to you and use it as an excuse to mess up,” she said. “But I’ve always handled what was given to me by life. I consider myself lucky. I was never lied to. And I was loved.”
She also shared a disconnect she felt while attending acting classes for kids in Los Angeles. “I couldn’t relate to kid stuff,” she explained. “‘Jimmy doesn’t like me!’ Who cares? I was worried we didn’t have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.”

Jessica Biel brings sexy back with a cover editorial for the April 2012 issue of W magazine. Lynn Hirschberg interviewed Justin Timberlake‘s fiance on her good-girl reputation and rebellious nature, and it turns out that the actress is ready to walk on the wild side.
“I think I need to destroy my reputation,” she said. “This whole I’m outdoorsy, I’m really healthy — it’s too squeaky clean. That’s going to be my new thing: Go dark and unhealthy. It’s time to be very, very bad.”
Biel also revealed that while filming “7th Heaven,” she frequently had to apologize to Aaron Spelling for one mishap or another. “I cut my hair superhort and dyed it blonde,” she said, adding that another time, a friend had a stripper pay a visit to the set. “The show was all about family values, and they took that position seriously. I was always apologizing.”

Christina Hendricks adds to her growing collection of magazine covers with the March 2012 issue of BlackBook magazine. She’s photographed by Kurt Iswarienko and styled by Christopher Campbell wearing dark dresses amid a misty oceanside setting.
In her accompanying interview, Hendricks revealed that the gloomy hues she wore in her editorial aren’t far from the color palette she embraced as a goth in high school. “I wasn’t one of those sloppy, dirty goths,” she explained. “I thought it was very beautiful and I went out of my way to do it right, in a very high-fashion kind of way.” The actress went on to say that she now has a growing collection of pencil skirts, no doubt inspired by “Mad Men” and her character Joan Holloway.

Heidi Klum is on the cover of the April 2012 issue of Elle, and in her accompanying interview, the supermodel and “Project Runway” host opened up about her split with husband Seal.
“I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado,” she admitted. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness — with you wanting it or not wanting it — is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life.”
Klum also said that she doesn’t want to go into detail about her relationship with the press, explaining, “I don’t think it’s necessary — especially for our children — to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
