Amanda Seyfried is the cover girl for Allure magazine's May issue! I just fell in love with the spreads I previewed, and had to feature them! The issue is photographed by the incomparable Patrick Demarchelier and the images are stunning. We are starting with a few images from Amanda's shoot and then we get to the lovely actresses who bared all for the issue ;) (Warning, it may be NSFW for some of you!) For more of the issue, be sure to pick up your own copy of Allure when it hits stands, and check out their site www.allure.com

Amanda is wearing a silk Nina Ricci dress and her makeup was done by Fulvia Farolfi.
This Zac Posen dress hugs Amanda in all the right places ;) One of my favorite qualities of Amanda is how unfiltered and natural she is in interviews, as she says in the magazine: "I have no edit button." I love that!
Here she wears this lovely eyelet dress by Dolce & Gabbana and her tresses were styled by Teddy Charles.
Now we move on to the more risqué spread in the issue!
Glee's Naya Rivera wasn't shy about stripping down for the shoot. As far as body image goes, she told Allure: "You can't be so hard on yourself that you're not enjoying every day." I whole heartedly agree with that statement!
For any Once Upon A Time fans, Jennifer Morrison took this gorgeous shot. When Allure asked how she prepared for the shoot, she said: "Nothing crazy or extreme, but maybe one glass of wine instead of two, fish instead of steak. And I got waxed and shaved my legs."
If you're a Nashville fan, like me, then you'll recognize the lovely Clare Bowen. When Allure asked what this shoot meant to her, Clare responded: " I said they could photograph my scars. This isn't a rite-of-passage thing or a risqué thing. It's about body image and making other people feel good."
Christa Miller from Cougar Town stuns in this black and white shot. The lighting and natural nature of the photo is what makes it truly beautiful, to me at least :)
See you Friday!
