Memo Pad: Charlize is Vogue's Cover Girl... Levi's New Man...

Vogue aims to leverage its September cover star to drum up excitement for Fashion’s Night Out on Sept. 10.

FASHIONABLE POLITICS: The U.K. edition of weekly fashion title Grazia is best known for spotlighting a must-have shoe or statement bag, but this week the magazine took a political turn. Grazia’s latest issue, which hit newsstands Tuesday, features a lengthy interview with David Cameron, the leader of Britain’s Conservative party who’s being widely tipped to be Britain’s next prime minister. In the interview with journalist Jane Moore, Cameron talks about his family life as much as his policies, particularly his marriage to Samantha Cameron, creative director of stationery and leather goods brand Smythson and daughter of Viscount and Viscountess Astor. “I look at her life and what she’s done and I’m so incredibly proud of her,” says Cameron in the piece. “As well as being an amazing mother and loving wife, she’s a fantastic designer. I’m not allowed to make a single decision about decor, not even a cushion.”

The magazine also puts readers’ questions on Cameron’s policies to the politician, asking him if he’ll regulate bonuses in the U.K.’s financial sector, whether his son will follow him to Eton and how he’ll tackle unemployment. However, the fashion weekly does manage to wring a few fun facts out of Cameron, too — he tells the title that he buys “virtually all my casual clothes at Gap or occasionally [Marks & Spencer],” and says he prefers Jennifer Aniston over Angelina Jolie. “I’d be afraid that Angelina would want to fight me,” he admits. — Nina Jones
