First things first: we want to wish a very huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Sky Ferreira! She may have turned 21 on Monday, but leave it to this girl to turn the tables and give US the present with a new magazine cover. Sky has an inimitable cool factor that just pops—whether it's on stage, during one of her frequent Terry's Diary cameos, or from the pages of fashion spreads. The model, actress (she stars in Grant Singer's new film IRL), and singer might have more slashes to her resume than 95% of the population, but the thing is, Sky doesn't just dabble. She does them all well (siiiigh). Luckily for everyone else not blessed with these triple threat skills, the multi-hyphenate's dishing on all of her projects and flaunting this cool factor for BULLETT's "Wild Issue." The star's showing off her choppy new 'do on the captivating magazine cover, which features Sky glancing sultrily back at the camera against a tangerine background. Thanks to some subtle rainbow highlights and a bold red lip, it's impossible to even TRY to look away. But then again, would you really want to?
Nicki Minaj in the August issue of 'Marie Claire'.

We'll be honest—we never get tired of seeing Nicki Minaj on magazine covers. Whether she channels a bedazzled Barbie or rocks an au naturel look, Nicki always manages to surprise us with something new. Today, she did just that. Marie Claire unveiled their August cover and it features—you guessed it—the Barbz herself! This time she channeled a punk couture look (inspired by this year's Met Gala, perhaps?), which mixed Mohawks with high-end duds. In one ensemble, Nicki straight-up KILLED. IT. in a skin-tight, perforated LaQuan Smith bodysuit, which she accessorized with a giant Mohawk headpiece and statement rings. For her beauty look, she sported stick-straight platinum strands with an exaggerated cat eye, matte red lip, and light pink tips. #WERK
Chloe Moretz for 'InStye' UK.

Judging from her recent covers for mags like NYLON and Teen Vogue, we already know that Chloe Moretz is just as versatile with her style as she is with her movie roles. She's done princessy-punk, she's done geometric minis, she's EVEN done denim on denim. But still, we've never seen her seem quite so...purple as she is on the cover of InStyle UK. The Carrie star is a total vision in lilac on the "color-themed" August issue of the glossy, looking seriously lovely in an embellished houndstooth dress and gorgeous pastel eye makeup swooped across her lids. Talk about drama! (In a good way, of course).
Demi Lovato on the cover of "Cosmopolitan" magazine's August 2013 issue.
There's one very good reason for Cosmopolitan to give Demi Lovato her second summer cover for the magazine in a row: she's a smoke show! In case you need a reminder, D fronted the glossy back in July of last year in a canary yellow scuba mini with long flowing brunette waves. This year, Cosmo's summer girl is the face of August in curve-hugging tangerine with a cerulean bra on display, a smoldering expression, and a windblown blonde mane. A few chunky silver accessories finish off Demi's cover look, but there's even more summer-ready Cosmo steez on the inside pages!
One Direction and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the cover of 'Glamour' magazine.
Because a movie trailer full of rampant half-nudity isn't enough One Direction for one week, Glamour has just revealed that everyone's favorite Brit-Irish boy band is gracing the cover of their August music issue. Not only that, they're joined on the glossy front by drop-dead model-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. As expected, the dudes' hair game is on lock. Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall, and Zayn all expertly toe the line between effortless bedhead and exceptional grooming while their mugs (which BTW are sporting some of the most endearingly dopey fanboy smiles we've ever seen) circle Rosie obliging head like some kind of magical dream ladyteen Christmas wreath.
Emma Watson covers the August issue of 'Teen Vogue.'

Thanks to a little movie called The Bling Ring (maybe you've heard of it?), it's been one VERY busy summer for Emma Watson. Besides, ya know, acting in the Sofia Coppola film itself, the British star has also embarked on a worldwide press tour, picked up a golden popcorn for her "Trailblazing" career, AND put our airport style games to shame... all before you can say, "Wanna rob?" Within the past couple of months the 23-year-old has also racked up more magazine covers than we can keep track of—and now she's adding yet another! Emma fronts the August issue of Teen Vogue, the fourth time she's landed the honor. Looking completely fresh-faced (with freckles!), Emma's repping a different side than we're used to seeing on covers. Out of character and dressed in clothes she'd probably wear IRL, her look is totally back-to-school-cool with an edgy twist.
We need to get something off our chest, y'all—we're jealous of Jared Leto. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has sported everything from spiky mullets to mesh tank tops to bare brows and STILL always manages to look amazing. At this point, it's just become straight-up unfair, but today, he dropped the mega bomb. He posted an Instagram pic featuring his gorge face on the cover Candy magazine's summer 2013 issue—completely in drag. The cover, shot by Terry Richardson, features Mr. Leto KILLING. IT. in a cotton candy pink bob with blunt bangs, out-of-this-world lashes, and shiny, crimson lips. LAWDY, we can barely handle this. #WERK
Ariana Grande on the August 'Seventeen' cover.

We can't help but love Ariana Grande. The singer/actress/almost birthday girl (she turns 20 tomorrow!) has been dishin' out the style tips for as long as we can remember—and with good reason! She's managed to carve out a particular playful girly-girl-meets-tomboy aesthetic that's we're obsessed with. Case and point: her latest cover and spread with Seventeen magazine! The August cover girl TOTALLY schools us on how to feminize even the most sporty duds (see: baseball caps and track jackets), and we cannot get enough. On the cover, Ariana wears a summery orange graphic print crop top with a green sequin skirt, DC hat and a denim jacket tied around the waist. For her makeup, she sports a touch of liner around her lids, light pink lip gloss, and her signature GORGEOUS brown ringlets.
Katy Perry on the cover of Vogue's July issue.
Holy moly, what a morning of firsts for Katy Perry and her Katy cats (her fans, not these cats)! Those, like us, with eyeballs squarely locked on her Twitter feed know will know that KP launched her brand spankin' new Instagram account this morning. And what special snap did she use to kick it off? A teaser for her VERY FIRST VOGUE COVER! *hyperventilates trying to imprint the historical moment forever* That's right, ladies and germs. Our girl Katy is officially a Vogue cover girl.
Lauren Conrad on the July issue of 'Marie Claire.'

We can't stop talking about Lauren Conrad! Between her debut bedding collection with Kohl's, summer LC Lauren Conrad clothing line, and new Infamous book, the ex-Hillsie has certainly been keeping us atwitter. Today, we were hit with even more LC amazingness thanks to Marie Claire. She graces their July issue in a edgy new look, which features bold beachside ensembles, sultry smoky eyes and, most notably, BANGS. She showed off her fresh Brigitte Bardot-inspired fringe only a couple weeks ago, so we are mega shocked (and psyched!) to see her sporting them on the cover. And, not to be totally weird, but LC looks hot in this issue. On the cover, she sported a sizzling yellow Emanuel Ungaro bandage dress with black and white polka dots, stacked Pomellato bracelets and her signature blonde strands.
