Taylor Swift on the cover of November's 'InStyle.'
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...on the cover of InStyle. The November issue features Taylor Swift lookin' ready to decorate a tree, bake cookies (though, to be fair, T.Swift is always ready to bake cookies), and open some presents. It's only mid-October, you guys! We still have Halloween and Thanksgiving to go! Swift was born in December and on a Christmas tree farm (yeah, really), though, so it's possible she's in the Christmas spirit 365 days a year. If I looked Swift-level good pairing green and red, I'd also be in that constant Christmas spirit. Also because I love presents.
For most people sitting at their desks, working/drumming their fingers on their keyboards, watching the clock and waiting for lunch, today is just another day. HOWEVER! If you’re a Miley Cyrus fan, today is Tuesday, October 8th—and that means BANGERZ is officially out, y’all! *raises roof* *throws confetti* *twerks twerks* But wait, there’s more! Today also brings another Miley interview to the interwebz, complete with purdy pictures and a little bit of insight into the inspiration behind her evolving style.
In a new feature from Hunger TV, the singer snuggles up with a powder blue fur for a series of beauty shots that produced the following faces: sexy face, sultry face, silly face, surprised face and tongue face. Always with the tongue face. (And yes, we’ve deemed “tongue face” to be an accurate description of multiple Miley expressions.) Clearly, Cyrus is well-aware that people are “so obsessed” with what she’s doing visually these days (see also: the VMAs, "Wrecking Ball" video, etc.), and her edgy new style is a huge part of her musical transformation.
Lady Gaga's 'ARTPOP' album cover.

Little Monsters, it's the day you've been waiting for! Lady Gaga just unveiled the cover of ARTPOP, a month before the album's release on November 11th. Gaga began teasing the cover and its release over the weekend, but she's been talking about how it's her "FAVORITE" of all her covers for weeks. The reason it's her fave? It was designed by Jeff Koons.
Madonna on 'Harper's BAZAAR.'

WOW. This has got to be the first time in the history of Harper’s that a grill has been worn on the cover, amirite? Man, Madonna STAYS breaking ground. *bows down* But wait. Does this mean that mouth jewels have officially received a nod of approval from the prestigious fashion mag? Well, I guess it is the “Daring Issue." And this is MADONNA. The only way this metal-mouth #FASHUN statement could be made any more daring by the 55-year-old Queen of Pop is if it included a death-defying motorcycle jump across the Grand Canyon.
Demi Lovato on the cover of 'Teen Vogue.'

We’ve seen Demi Lovato do a lot of things with her hair (remember when she dyed it blue on Wednesday? #memories), but this is the first time we’ve ever seen her –or any star, for that matter—rock a braided silk scarf as like, the tail of an actual braid. How do you even do that?! Tutorial, plz. For her second Teen Vogue cover, the singer/actress/X Factor Judge/Glee guest star/The New Black nail polish collaborator (whew! *wipes brow*) traded her rock-star style for a more relaxed, city-girl-in-the-country look, pairing a low-cut red top with a charcoal wide-brimmed felt fedora and a stunning emerald and gold necklace.
Big Sean for GQ.

Oh gawd! Who better to show off some of fall’s hottest trends for men than one of hip-hop’s most buzzed about MCs, Big Sean? In between promoting his sophomore album, Hall of Fame, collaborating with everyone from Drake to Miley, and, of course, cozying up with
girlfriend fiancé and total Gleeker, Naya Riviera, Big Sean somehow managed to find time to pose for a 15 photo spread. Swerve! The G.O.O.D Music signee was tapped by none other than GQ to model "Fall’s 15 Freshest Style Moves" for their November issue, and yes, the photos are amazing!
The Jonas Brothers on the cover of 'FAULT' Magazine.

If we’ve seemed at all out of sorts lately, it’s because we’ve really been struggling to fill a huge void in our lives—but fear not! Because that void is about to be refilled. Collectively, the Jonas Brothers have been AWOL for the past few months—and while we understand that they can’t do everything together all the time, it’d be a lot easier for us to keep track of their handsome mugs (and avoid future life-voids) if they just stayed in the same place. Forever. We’ve got a whole lot of love for plenty of other boy bands out there, but the JoBros are special. The JoBros are, well, BROS. And there’s something pretty presh about keeping harmonies in the family. (Also because, eyebrows.)
So, when we got word that Joe, Kevin and Nick would all be appearing on the cover of FAULT Magazine’s Fall 2013 issue at the same time AND talking about their new album, V, we swooned SO hard—like, right here at our desks. It was basically like watching a bunch of really stylish dominoes topple over in graceful succession. (FYI: No one was injured in said swooning.) Once we recovered, we peeped some shots from their “illumination”-themed shoot, and then we swooned again. JK we just squealed really loud instead because HI, they’re hot.
Rihanna on the cover of 'Glamour.'
No, your eyes aren't deceiving you: that is Rihanna with her short-lived curly 'do on the cover of Glamour's November issue! This haircut existed for a fleeting moment (OK, a few days) in early August, right before she made the switch to her current steelo: the mullet.
The cover is simple: a smoldering, smokey-eyed Rihanna, gold hoops, and a teeny-tiny collarbone tattoo. She's in a long-sleeved Dior bodysuit, but none of that even matters, TBH, because we can't stop looking at that hair. It' so curly! It's so full! It's so well-maintained! We don't spot a single fly-away. #HERO
Iggy Azalea covers 'Paper' magazine.
In between the VMAs and performing and making ALL of the rounds at ALL of the Fashion Weeks (for realsies), Iggy Azalea somehow managed to find the time to pose for the latest issue of Paper magazine. We’ve seen her rock a LOT of looks since she first twerked onto the scene—from Bollywood dancer to trailer park renegade to high rollin’ showgirl to bootlicious Bettie Page (is anyone else sweating trying to keep up?)—but this grunge goth steez she’s sportin’ on the cover of Paper’s “Nightlife” issue? This is brand spankin’ new and we hate it. JK, WE LOVE IT. But seriously, we love it. She is channeling Sky Ferreira x vintage Courtney Love in a major way and it is giving us LIFE. It’s no wonder that the 23-year-old Australian rapper is doing ‘90s right, though. Her fuzzy plaid cardigan, leopard-splattered dress, dot tights, belt and tiny pearl strands are ALL courtesy of Hedi Slimane and Saint Laurent. (Who, duh, just happen to count both Ferreira and Love as muses.)
Katy Perry on the cover of 'Billboard.'
Billboard just released the cover to their upcoming issue, and it features none other than Katy Perry! The cover is v. similar to the Prism cover art: soft lighting and flowers, which makes sense, because both covers were shot by Ryan McGinley. So, is the Billboard cover a BIG REVEAL of what Katy's wearing on the Prism cover, or did Katy and Ryan hit up two different flower fields on separate occasions? Katy's hair and makeup are similar (read: natural looking) on both covers, so it's totally plausible they were both shot in one go, which prooooobably means *BIG REVEAL* Katy is wearing clothes on the Prism cover!
