Just when you think Katy Perry covered every fashion mag known to man, the singer still had a lot of magazine firsts this year—Vogue this past July, and now ELLE UK for September! She traded in all those romantic couture gowns from her Vogue spread with a super fun and fresh look that we TOTALLY want to cop this fall. KP ditched her signature perfectly-curled coif for a messier, edgier razor cut 'do. She also opted for a swipe of super thick liner all around her lids for a '60s-model-meets-punk-rocker feel. For a pop of color, she sported bright teal polish on her tips. Me-ow.

Look, guys! It's One Direction on the cover of Teen Vogue! Feel like you're having déjà vu? Pretty sure you remember 1D JUST posing for the The Fashion Bible's younger sister really recently? Welp, you're not alone. And you're not wrong, either! The world's most adorable Brit-Irish boy band is gracing the cover of Teen Vogue for a second time, less than a year after the group's first appearance. Back in winter, Teen Vogue gave Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall, and Louis individual covers swaddled in tweeds and wool knits—"Hot Holiday Style" was the predominant cover line. Now, the teen glossy has the dudes (deservedly) back for their September issue (a.k.a. the Super Bowl issue of the fashion editorial world)!
Demi Lovato for "Fashion" Canada.

Welp, that Just Cavalli dress is one way to turn heads on newsstands! AMIRITE? Thank you, FASHION magazine, for this gorgeous cover snap of our girl Demi Lovato. D pops off the page in this tropical, multi-patterned bodycon dress with almost-peplum details at the waist. Her hair is dark, dating the shoot to at least pre-May of this year, and her makeup (done by Mai Quynh) is natural and fresh-faced save a boldly kohl-lined cat eye and an immaculately sculpted brow. Pairing a dress THAT vibrant with a more subdued beauty look seems like the right balance. It ALSO gives you enough outfit cap room to add giant gobstopper-sized drop Mawi earrings. *WINK*
Beyonce for "Flaunt" magazine.

Being that the woman has been on a MASSIVE international tour for the past three months, we're not surprised that we've experienced a kind of Beyonce editorial spread drought. That is, until now. Brace yourselves, Beyhive. Flaunt Magazine has unveiled its latest issue and guess who's gracing the cover? QUEEN BEY, DUH. Also, umm, IDK if you, erm, noticed, but... it looks like she's just wearing glitter. As in, no clothes, only glitter. *GULP*
Sky Ferreira for 'BULLETT.'

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.
