In Fashion: Six Must- Reads in Style

In addition to lots and lots of new fashion collections, my glossies delivered some wonderful stories and features this month. I always look forward to Vogue's Age Issue, and this year's featured the fabulous Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover ... and how I covet her Burberry sweater coat with epaulets! So natty! The tie-in to SJP's new movie, I Don't Know How She Does It, made her the perfect cross-marketing choice for the age issue; Parker's character in the film is a working mom trying to balance a high-powered career with motherhood. I'm "meh" about the movie, but I'm wild about SJP's photo shoot (Mario Testino, of course). The yellow Chanel suit is giving me fits--love!

So what else is worth reading this month from the online editions? Check out my picks after the jump.

Vogue

"Annual Age Issue Portfolio": Photos and quotes from fascinating women of all ages. The pictures are beautiful, the women are ethereal.

"Queen Jane Lynch": A profile of the Glee star. I'll read anything and everything I can get my hands on about this funny lady--I'll even watch her host the Emmys, my least-favorite award show.

Vanity Fair

"Emma Stone: Hollywood is Her Oyster": It would be too easy to call Emma Stone the more beautiful, talented, and less-troubled Lindsey Lohan--mostly because that's what everyone is always calling her. Stone is funny, smart, and thoughtful and her interviews reflect a fun girl who takes her work seriously.

"Photos: Vanity Fair Goes Inside Comic-Con": A great slideshow of Comic-Con, VF style.

ELLE

"Austin Found": The girl who gave a lot of folks a major "Huh? Who is that?" moment at this year's Grammy's gives us a brief tour of Austin. Esperanza Spaulding just moved to Austin and does a little name checking in the state capital.

"Lust in Translation: Justin Timberlake & Mila Kunis": The pair takes on questions, and the cover, in the most recent issue.
