Faces on the Newsstand: Drew Barrymore on Marie Claire, Shakira on Glamour, Oprah on W

Drew Barrymore is all grown up on the cover of Marie Claire’s February issue, lamenting about her childhood. “When I was a kid, everything was so unplanned, my parents were so erratic,” the Blended actress said. Since marrying into the Kopelmans, she knows the sort of values she wants to pass down to her children. We’re sure the film and beauty empire Barrymore is building won’t hurt either.

W magazine’s style and fashion director Edward Enniful has reached a momentous occasion while building his personal empire; he styled Oprah Winfrey for one of the six issues commemorating the glossy’s movie issue on newsstand this February. Despite styling covers for Jennifer Lawrence (and her new pixie), Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, and Amy Adams, his Instagram is littered with picture of him and Lady O.

Shakira shared the secret to her success in the February issue of Glamour magazine, saying “Success happened little by little for me. I tasted the flavor of fame in small doses: I started at 10 years old when I won a music contest; I was performing at birthday parties, company meetings. I meet with a record executive when I was 13 and sang ‘Material Girl’ to a cassette-tape boom box. I’ve shaken hands at every radio station, from Honduras to Ryan Seacrest’s. One day [I realized I was famous] enough. But here’s the thing: I’m still hungry. But I’m not hungry for fame — just the need to prove to myself that I can still do this.”

Singer Ariana Grande is revealing her first taste of success… and perhaps her first adult magazine cover. She is Cosmopolitan’s February cover girl. “I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it’s just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I’ve dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn’t expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca.”

Fashion’s nice girl, Sarah Jessica Parker, was interviewed by her good friend, Katie Couric for InStyle magazine’s latest issue. She’s so nice, she can’t even be bothered to manufacture her image. She told Couric that she chooses her clothing based on how she responds to them and not because she wants to be on a best-dressed list. “So I think pulling it off or not pulling it off, that almost doesn’t exist for me because, really, I’m looking for experiences, not some report card.”

Speaking of experiences, Harper’s Bazaar’s cover girl, model Daria Werbowy is all about them. She lives in Ireland and only joined Instagram as @dotwillow so that her family could keep up with her. What’s next? Perhaps, acting? “Hello, HBO, I really want to be on Game of Thrones,” she said intently into the reporter’s recorder. “I could be a warrior, I’ll do anything.”
