Born to Reign

Emilia Clarke On The Real Meaning Behind Her ‘Game of Thrones’ Tattoo. Her dragon ink has a far deeper meaning.
Given she’s spent most of her working life in a platinum blonde wig and an elaborate costume, you could be forgiven for not recognising Game of Thrones actress and ELLE Australia April 2019 cover star, Emilia Clarke, in her more everyday garb.

Lady Gaga Is Born Again

The world’s most famous pop musician disappears into a role that’s a fun-house mirror version of her own rise.
I feel like I’m still a fetus,” says Lady Gaga, looking impeccably glamorous in a wide-belted black Alaïa dress, stabby heels, extravagant lashes, and dark brows, her platinum hair framing her face in soft waves. What she looks like (no doubt deliberately) is a midcentury Italian film star—Monica Vitti in some long-lost Antonioni picture, or a tiny, blond Sophia Loren. What she means is that she feels like she’s just getting started as an artist—that she’s only accomplished a fraction of what she still plans to do—but I have a hard time wrapping my head around this notion, considering the decade she’s just had.

Jenna Dewan is starting over. And it might just be her most exciting role yet.

At her ELLE cover shoot in sunny Los Angeles, Dewan—who was interviewed by her friend, the hairstylist Jen Atkin—was optimistic about the future. Speaking about her new production company, Everheart, Dewan says she increasingly felt the need to make her own stories.
Throughout the shoot, Dewan dances, poses and reflects on the changes to come in her life. She feels a lot of inspiration, she says, to examine what she really wants from life.
