Jennifer Aniston2 of 17
Arriving fresh-faced to her cover shoot in relaxed denim cutoffs with a white tee, Aniston discussed baby rumors before boyfriend Justin Theroux dropped by the set.
On the baby rumors: "But it's not what you read. There's no desperation. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. I'm at peace with whatever the plan is. But will you hate me if I say I don't want to talk about my relationship? "
In Print3 of 17
Aniston attended her hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre this July, and her playful frock made yet another mark on Hollywood.

Viola Davis4 of 17
Wearing a Lanvin shiftdress, Davis requested a Rihanna mix while playing on set at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.
On how her career has panned out: "I didn't get my SAG card until I was 30. But that's how it works. You keep putting your work out there, and at some point, if you're fortunate, if you're lucky, if you're blessed, it morphs into something. One role has led to another until I've emerged as this. This!"

Viva Viola5 of 17
The Oscar-nominated and Tony Award-winner made a statement in this red Escada gown with gilded accessories while attending the Los Angeles premiere of The Help.
Freida Pinto6 of 17
Before deciding on a lotus-printed Givenchy dress, Pinto fell for stunners by Chanel and Nina Ricci.
On being described as the "perfect obscure object of desire" by Woody Allen: "For me, it wasn't trivializing, but it would be if I did that in film after film. It gave me the opportunity of exploring the woman I'm not."

Bombay Sapphire7 of 17
Wearing a pink champagne hued Valentino dress, Pinto attended the premiere of her upcoming film, Trishna, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Elizabeth Olsen8 of 17
Well into her senior year at New York University, Olsen got '80s preppy in Manhattan with a classic Omega gold watch and cozy v-neck sweaterdress.
On what made her want to act: "Watching old Frank Sinatra musicals when I was, like, 6. I wanted to be one of the love interests when I got older."
Stepping Out9 of 17
She may be gaining critical recognition for her role in Martha Marcy May Marlene, but Olsen's brightly hued Erdem floral dress snagged the attention of fans at the premiere in Toronto.
Michelle Pfeiffer10 of 17
Pfeiffer was shot in Venice, California and played dress-up in featherweight vintage Calanos gowns from the 1950s.
On plastic surgery: "I'm all for a little something here and there—fine. It doesn't matter to me if people have plastic surgery or they don't, or if they do Botox. But when people don't look like themselves anymore, that's when you kind of go, "Oooh," and it's kind of sad. It's uncomfortable for us, but if they're happy with what they see in the mirror, does it matter?"
Serious Style11 of 17
From portraying the glam Elvira Hancock in Scarface to playing the pleather-clad Catwoman in Batman Returns, Pfeiffer remains one of the sexiest and best-dressed actresses in Hollywood.
Evan Rachel Wood12 of 17
Wood rocked a boyishly charming look in a Stella McCartney jacket and an Elvis-like pompadour.
On the roles she chooses: "I always want to do things that reflect where I am. I do the roles that give me butterflies."
Trench Town13 of 17
Wood dons a '70s retro-inspired leather trench and fedora while attending the premiere for the highly anticipated film The Ides of March, in which she plays opposite not one, but two swoon-worthy leading men: George Clooney and Ryan Gosling.
Naomi Watts14 of 17
Watts kept it casual by posing in a plain white tee, Calvin Klein skinny jeans and urban-appropriate combat boots.
On her breakthrough role in Mulholland Drive: "It was a game-changer, but I knew I had to be careful. You can get a lot of attention and still be gone in a flash.”
High Wattage15 of 17
Dressed in a white-hot Stella McCartney suit, the mother of two attends the New York City Ballet Fall Gala.
Barbra Streisand16 of 17
The original Funny Girl brought ELLE into her Malibu home for a shoot styled with black and white Chanel pieces from Streisand's own closet.
On how Warren Beatty got her to sing at a fundraiser for presidential candidate George McGovern: "Warren and I met when I was 15 years old. I was babysitting for my acting teacher, and it was Warren's first summer of stock. Can you imagine, he asked if I would cue him! That's the closest I ever got to a casting couch, not that I could get a part! I saw him a month ago. We're always, 'I can't get over it. Here we are. We were both nobodies!'"
Sing Your Heart Out17 of 17
With over 50 years in the entertainment industry, Streisand is one multitalented entertainer. She has an exceptional record of releasing multiplatinum albums, and has won an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award.
