In Russia, isn't it always Winter somewhere? In a season where swimwear dominates, Zoe Saldana plays it quite the opposite, dressing up in plaid and tweed Gucci and Oscar de la Renta layers for the July/ August issue of Harper's Bazaar Russia. It's the equivalent of a nostalgic, wintry fantasy. Granted we're given the Russian theme to work with, but we can't help but feel transported to a Nabokov novel with the gorgeous Saldana as our modern protagonist.

"You can't really get mad at David because he's not a malicious person. He was dealing with things the best way he could. And don't get me wrong, he was on a show for entertainment. David is smart, and David is also a showman. He knew what he was doing . . . He's not out to harm. But I'm his biggest protector. I can't help it."
— Courteney Cox says she bears no grudge toward her separated husband David Arquette in April's Harper's Bazaar. After their split last October, David divulged intimate relationship details on Howard Stern. Maybe it's his well-documented remorse? Or maybe she subscribes to the British royal etiquette of rising above hostility toward former lovers? But it sounds to me like there's still some mutual affection.
Rita Wilson opens up about her weight loss journey in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar, and in the first person chronicle, describes what prompted her to reach out to trainer Jillian Michaels. The actress, 54, describes putting on the "the freshman 15 at 53" and what it took to get it off.
- On why she sought help: "My comfort food had now become . . . uncomfortable . . . It was time to get into shape, because how many times could I put one more photo of myself into my scrapbook, angling my body behind my husband's (or an unsuspecting person or a piece of furniture) so I would appear half my size?"
- On meeting Jillian: "The first day Jillian came over to my house, I thought we would just discuss process, diet, physiology — you know, two girlfriends shooting the breeze . . . So when Jillian told me to get up and start running my interior stairs, I thought she was joking."

"My mother never said to lose weight. Diets were never a big deal. My mom was always beautiful and voluptuous and curvy, and I always thought she was gorgeous."
— Christina Hendricks talks to Harper's Bazaar about the postive message of body image she received growing up. Since rising to fame in Mad Men, Christina has become an unofficial icon for curvy women, but Très wonders if the body talk is too much.
I am so devoted to Mad Men that it's probably considered offensive in some cultures. I love Joanie, her hillsides, and what her character has done for women and body image. And while writers put words in her mouth, Christina Hendricks delivers them to biting perfection.
Yet in seemingly every interview lately, she's gushing over the positive effect her body has had on women. In November's Harper's Bazaar, she discusses her mass appeal. "Women hit on me. My husband thinks it's so odd that so many women hit on me." But things get odder when gay men do, too. "They say to me, 'Well, I'm not straight, but if I was . . . '"
To be fair, she's not asking the questions or writing the stories, so the media probably deserves the real wag of our fingers. But for a woman who said, as recently as February, she'd talk about anything but her body, I question what's up. Her confidence? Or the media's insatiable interest?

Cameron Diaz struck a pose for August's Harper's Bazaar, which hits newsstands on July 20. She also posed for an NYC-themed spread inside the magazine, shot by photographer Terry Richardson. She's been busy promoting Knight and Day around the world with her costar Tom Cruise, and the pair are currently in Brazil for their latest premiere. Cameron shared with the magazine about her work and her famous body — she also touched on her boyfriends, both past and present, by commenting on working with Justin Timberlake in Bad Teacher and making a passing reference to her current flame, Alex Rodriguez. She said:
- On her love life: "I grew up with the Dodgers, but now I'm a Yankees fan."
- On her behind: "Most booties that propel girls are usually the bigger booties. I have a little tiny one, but it is, nonetheless, juicy."
- On bad boys: "I've always loved men and boys. I don't get hung up on what boys do. I don't have a nagging nature. I feel like I can be a woman but also relate to a man . . . Who doesn't like the bad boy, until you grow up and realize bad boys are not the way to go? I'm done with that."
- On working with Justin Timberlake in Bad Teacher: "Justin and I have laughed together for years. He is the funniest guy; you've seen the stuff he does on SNL."
