Elle's Women In Music

The Women of Music issue of the US version of Elle Magazine is probably my favourite issue every year. The reason being because it brings together two of the biggest loves of my life, music and fashion. The only thing missing from this issue to make my year is candy. Because let's be honest, Candy makes everything perfect! For the May 2011 publication, No Doubt singer and L.A.M.B designer Gwen Stefani graces the cover of the coveted issue. Stefani looks stunning in a Givenchy Pre-Fall 2011 collection dress made by Riccardo Tisci.

In the mag, Stefani talks about making music, writing, her marriage and other popstars like Rih-Rih, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. The blonde bombshell also talks about performing while preggers saying, “It was horrible. Certain songs would make me want to puke. You feel pretty gross when you are first pregnant. You don’t feel cute, you feel disgusting. You’re getting fat. It was hard.”

Also the issue features hip hop's leading lady Nicki Minaj and music. Nicki looks gorg a black and white portrait where she is sporting a Mark Fast knit minidress, a Maison Martin Margiela bodysuit, and suede Guiseppe Zanotti wedge boots. Nicki tells Elle about what it's like to be a female rapper in a predominately male industry, “I always wanted to play with the boys,” she tells the magazine. “I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character—a superhero.”

You can also see music rookie, Willow Smith in the issue gushing about her upcoming debut album saying, It’s going to be a party beat. I think you’re gonna like it!” The magazine is filled with the biggest females in the music industry this year. You'll also see, Liipstik LOVE, Adele, Feist, Florence Welch and Jennifer Husdon. I love that Elle is embracing some of the strongest, most talented and unique female music stars in the world and giving them time to shine! LOVES IT! The issue is available on newsstands April 12th. Check out some pics from the issue below.
