“I don’t want to paint our relationship like we met and it’s been happy family fantastic-ness ever since,” cautions Harris. “What defines a relationship is the work that’s involved to maintain it, and it’s constantly changing. Sometimes I’m deeply in love with David and head-over-heels, and sometimes I question whether it’s going to work out and is meant to be. It’s like a business relationship, as well as a personal one; we have a business together and that’s maintaining our love for one another.”
Burtka expressed similar sentiments in his portion of the profile. “We’re not trying to pretend that we’re perfect,” he said. “We’re just trying — in a good, positive, loving way — to live our lives.”

Country crooner Taylor Swift has landed the cover of the February 2012 issue of Vogue. It’s Swift’s first cover for the venerated fashion mag, and she posed for legendary photographer Mario Testino in wild patterns and prints from Rodarte.
Swift’s editorial is called “The Single Life,” so it’s no surprise that she dishes on her love life. “I got nothing going on,” she confessed. “I just don’t really feel like dating. I really have this great life right now, and I’m not sad and I’m not crying this Christmas, so I am really stoked about that.”
Taylor Swift also talks about what freaks her out: “When is the other shoe going to drop? I am so happy right now. So I am always living in fear. This can’t be real, right? This can’t really be my life.”

For most women, go-to styles when we want to get noticed are low-cut necklines and short skirts. But there’s something unexpected, mysterious, and provocative about showing skin in an unconventional place. What body part is having a moment right now? The back.
The back has historically been considered an area of sensuality and vulnerability. The curves of the female back have long been the subject of paintings intended to communicate sensuality without being overtly sexual. Backless, or embellished-backed garments have the same effect. …Read More
“Twilight” star Ashley Greene is ethereal in the first ads from the DKNY Spring 2012 campaign. The actress poses atop a New York City skyscraper in denim, diaphanous dresses and plenty of patterns for famed fashion photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
“I’ve always been a fan of the brand, so I think it’s a really organic fit for me,” Greene told Teen Vogue. “I was very flattered that they asked me to jump on board.”

Zooey Deschanel plays up her quirky, “adorkable” persona for the February 2012 issue of Allure magazine. Although nearly everyone loves the “New Girl” star now, she revealed that she was bullied as a youngster. “Girls spit in my face — people were so mean to me, I’d cry every day,” she recounted.
Deschanel also discussed her body image, especially as her figure compares to other Hollywood actresses. “Some people around me, they’re like 89 pounds,” she said. “I’m not going to say I’m a big girl. I’m a very small person, but I’m a healthy weight. That might be a little weird for Hollywood.”

Michelle Williams channels Marilyn Monroe yet again for the February 2012 issue of GQ magazine. In the accompanying interview, she talks about Heath Ledger and some of the advice she got before filming “My Week With Marilyn.”
Philip Seymour Hoffmann, it turns out, gave her the best advice: “If there’s even a whiff of the icon, things get much less interesting.”
It’s Williams’ talks about Ledger, though, that are the most poignant. Speaking about the nexus of their relationship, she said, “Our initial meeting, the circumstances of how we first met, were cosmic or something. A lot of things happened at once. It’s a bit like: We had a lot of things to do, because we didn’t have a lot of time, or something.”
When writer Chris Heath asked whether she ever imagined that she and Ledger would somehow end up together, she responded, “That would make me way too sad to answer.” Then, she recanted: “No, I said it would make me too sad to answer, but it’s also one of my favorite things to imagine. It’s actually one of my favorite places to visit.”
