Sharon Stone bares all for the September cover of Harper's Bazaar, and reveals even more about herself inside, starting with her sex-symbol image. "You start asking yourself, 'What really is sexy?' . . . It's being present and having fun and liking yourself enough to like the person that's with you," said Stone, 57. The actress was also candid about the cerebral hemorrhage she suffered in 2001. "It almost feels like my entire DNA changed. My brain isn't sitting where it used to, my body type changed and even my food allergies are different," she said.

The "Empire" cast, series creator Lee Daniels and hit maker The Weeknd turn up the dial on fall fashion with a spread in the September Vogue. Daniels also shared his vision for Fox's hit. "I have been to Oprah's house, and I have been to Puffy's," he said, "and I have been to my Aunt Dot's on 46th and Walnut in the projects of Philadelphia, and there's a common thread. You can go down to the hood and still find gangsters' girls who ain't got two nickels, but the Louis Vuitton bag is fierce, and they will have the mink. I wanted to say: This is what people are wearing."
