There’s something different about Lorde’s Teen Vogue cover. *Squints eyes, cocks head* Oh right! Lorde is wearing a whole lot of color. The 17-year-old alt-pop wunderkind is glowing on her latest magazine cover, where she’s styled in an orange-and-red plaid top from Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection—a pivot from her typically goth, mostly monotone M.O. Lorde’s softer makeup—a light smoky eye finished with silver shadow and a natural lip (not her signature purple shade)—is another departure that we can get behind.

Lorde opens up in her profile about the unrealistic beauty ideals placed on pop stars—and, she hopes, their eventual disappearance. "There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she says. "I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too. I guess that's why I get labeled as 'the grumpy girl,' because I don't play into that."

Lupita Nyong'o

If two magazine covers are better than one, five is, like... *eyes turn to hearts and spring out of skull, tongue unfurls onto floor, and a tiny version of you walks out from inside your mouth and faints on the tip* And that's EXACTLY (more or less) what happened when we saw that Marie Claire had tapped Lupita Nyong’o, Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning, Emilia Clark, and Kate Mara for the mag's May issue.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Lupita can do no wrong. For her cover, Lupita wears a hot-pink, snakeskin-trimmed gown by Christopher Kane. Inside, she wears a black-and-white optic Dior stunner that she accessorized with a ribbed scarf and a Graziela Gems ear cuff. And in her interview, Lupita is as poised as ever on the topic of other peoples’ opinions: "Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don't want to thrive on people's opinions of me."

As for her path to fashion darling-dom? It has a lot to do with her stylist, Micaela Erlanger, who covered the Hollywood Reporter with Lupita earlier this year. "I wasn't a follower of fashion. It was a world unknown,” Lupita says, “Then I met my stylist, Micaela Erlanger...and we came to interpret my style: clean lines, strong color."

Beyonce

Ring the alarm. Beyonce is not only topless on her first magazine cover of 2014, Out, she’s also platinum with a bob à la Marilyn Monroe. We’ve seen a lot of different Beyonces over the years—case in point: We saw 17 of them just over the course of her visual album—but this is an entirely new look for Queen B.

Inside the magazine, we get a look at Beyonce’s revealing cover outfit: just two body chains and two tiny necklaces. But then again, those necklaces likely cost more than our clothes budget for the year, so you do you, Bey. Since she was in the midst of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour during the shoot, she was probably pressed for time and needed quick outfits to wear. (I mean, she didn’t even have enough time to sit down with the writer for a face-to-face interview—they emailed.) To be fair, though, Bey does make a great case for an all-white suit when she pops up in a beaded eyelet tuxedo in another shot.

Miley Cyrus

Does Miley Cyrus get more hours per day than everyone else? How else could she manage to be on her Bangerz Tour, act as the face of Marc Jacobs, and cover magazines practically every month? Her latest cover is a big one—Elle's Women in Music issue. Unlike her most recent cover—for W, where she was wearing a whole lotta nothing—for Elle, Miley has on a sequined jumpsuit from Marc Jacobs' Fall 2014 collection.

What Miley gained in clothing she lost in accessories—while her W cover featured baubles on baubles and bling on bling, here she only has on two bracelets and one ring. Her makeup is similarly just as low-key, with her strong brows (welcome back, bbs!) standing in stark contrast to her platinum pixie.

Holland Roden

Quick—everyone jump in the shower right now, because wet hair is IN. First Beyonce worked a saturated 'do for her Grammys performance. Then Harry Styles' hair was (mysteriously) soaked in One Direction's "Midnight Memories" video. The trend even appeared in Phillip Lim's show during New York Fashion Week. And NOW, Holland Roden is making us rethink hairdryers entirely in Line magazine's latest issue. The Teen Wolf star sports the wet hair look on the cover and in every single one of the inside photos, and honestly? We've never seen her look more unbelievably gorgeous.

Solange

Hair is officially the biggest accessory for spring, at least in the world of editorial spreads with our favorite female musicians. We kind of called this one after seeing Solange’s angled 'fro in a Harper’s Bazaar feature and V Magazine’s very hairy music issue covers—now Essence magazine has confirmed our inkling with their May 2014 issue dedicated to the topic of natural hair. Fittingly, the magazine tapped Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi—ladies whose hair (and music and style) we’ve always admired—to be the alternate cover stars.

Predictably, they all nailed it. Solange and Badu wore toned-down makeup, all the better to show off their wild curls. In a behind-the-scenes video, we get a closer look at their outfits. For the shoot, Solange stuck with a pastel palette, wearing a reverse-racerback, white lace crop top and mint crocheted skirt on the cover and an ostrich-feather-covered strapless dress and a pink floral jacket inside the issue.

Rita Ora

The topless trend is becoming so mainstream these days, it's a wonder designers even bother making shirts anymore. The latest "It" Girl to jump on the semi-nude bandwagon? Rita Ora on this month's cover of Elle UK. The British singer clearly doesn't need fancy clothes to look totally gorgeous, as she appears in nothing more than a pink Dior skirt and a Cartier bracelet. She is forced to share the spotlight with one other pretty gal, however—"Rosetta," her detailed ribcage tattoo.

Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad has always been a California girl. She's blonde and sun-kissed, sophisticated and casual. Oh, and duh, she was the star of Laguna Beach and The Hills. Although she's maintained her beachy personal brand, she certainly has come a long way since her Brody Jenner-pining days. LC is now an author, fashion designer, business owner, Instagram guru—you name it, she does it. And as of this month, she can now add "three-time Allure cover model" to her ever-growing resume.

Vogue blew everyone’s minds on Friday when they released their April cover kover featuring Kanye West and Kim Kardashian #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple. Not only was it a triumphant moment for Kimye stans, it was also a major moment for Vogue. The April issue also marks the first time the magazine has used a hashtag on their cover. Fittingly, Kimye lived up to the hype of their label, err hashtag, eliciting a panoply of Tweets—some in support of the cover story and some not. We rounded up a few of the best responses below, from Seth Rogen and James Franco’s very necessary spoof to how Bey and Jay Z might have reacted.

Well, well, well, looks like all of those lunch dates with Anna Wintour finally paid off because guess who just got her—err, their—first Vogue cover? KIMYE! In what will most likely be the most fascinating cover story of all year, Vogue profiled Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in anticipation of their upcoming, surely epic wedding. I mean, just look at the tagline: Their fashionable life and surreal times #WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOUPLE. We can only guess what that entails. We have SO MANY questions. “Who is making Kim’s wedding dress/what will Kanye wear/what will North wear/how do you even top this proposal?” only scratches the surface.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
