Like the rest of the world, we're already obsessed with Grimes, Sky Ferreira, and Charli XCX individually. But when you put three of our favorite emerging musicians together? Um, let's just say our minds exploded a little bit- okay, a lot- from the pure excitement of it all. The trio covers V Magazine's new "Youth Quake" issue, looking, well, exactly like the Next Big Things decked out in head to toe Givenchy. Look even closer and you'll see that the three rising pop stars aren't the only ones fronting the mag- they share the cover with three tiny mice (eeeek).
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield in the August issue of 'Teen Vogue.'

Dawwww! We can't stop smiling ever since we laid eyes on the August 2012 issue of Teen Vogue because the cutest couple of the year, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, flash their fashion-y selves all over the pages of the mag. This isn't the first summer cover for The Amazing Spider-Man stars—just last week Andrew was unveiled on the Nylon Guys cover and Emma made her glorious debut on Vogue's July issue. (Also, remember back in May when we deemed this the "summer of Andrew Garfield?" Well, so far our theory is still going EXTREMELY strong, and it's only June!) For their Teen Vogue spread, the 'dorbs couple exuded utter cuteness looking their Sunday best in matching black hats. Emma wears an orange Mulberry dress, black lace Calvin Klein socks, and white Acne boots, while Andrew sports a midnight blue Carven jacket, shirt and pants ensemble.
Channing Tatum on the cover of British "GQ Style."

Oh, hello, Channing Tatum! How resourceful of you to find the only sunroof in New York that looks (by some bizarro M.C. Escher mind-maneuver that somehow puts you below it and looking up?) square in the middle of my desk area. You know how I love when you pensively watch me go about my afternoon activities through a glossy veneer and... cover lines? *aggressively shakes head, also jowls* Oh, right, nevermind.
As is typical upon first glance at Channing Tatum, the title character of the HOTTLY (yes, with two Ts) anticipated Magic Mike, we've been locked into his superhuman-strength bedroomy gaze, and we ALMOST forgot this was just a magazine cover. Channing is British GQ Style's latest cover boy, and while his upcoming film may have him portraying a present-day male stripper (plus, shirtless Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey *rolls tongue back into skull carpet-style*), this cover spread is a little more Pleasantville than Chippendales.
Azealia Banks for "Paper" magazine.

How many times can we reiterate just how much we capital L, LUHHHH Azealia Banks? Answer: not enough. As long as this girl keeps making cheeky music videos like "Liquorice" and "212" and looking fierce in magazine spreads like this here cover spread courtesy of Paper Magazine, we will forever glorify AZ from the highest hilltops this side of the Mississippi. Banks fronts the glossy's summer Music Issue in a graphic Alexander Wang tee, dip dye shorts and a mirrored hat both by Joyrich, GAW-GEOUS black Pedro Garcia platform wedges, and a gold Mickey Mouse head bag by Todd Pearce for Love Bailey that winks back at both her debut music video AND Paper's own Mickey Boardman.
WHOA. Our Monday just got about 1000x prettier, thanks to Miss Emma Stone and her major new magazine spread. The actress looks drop-dead gorgeous on the cover of July's VOGUE , casually posing in a Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci blue and orange satin dress. VOGUE has been known to churn out the glammest covers around, but this one is by far our new favorite. Emma's sporting the same blonde hair she had at the Movie Awards earlier this month, but instead swapped her signature statement lips for a natural peach and rosy blush. And wow, those eyes! Maybe it's the kohl liner or her intense baby blues, but seriously- she's staring straight at us, and we can't look away. The issue marks the first time The Amazing Spider-Man star fronts the glossy, and it's about time, because she's officially hit a fashion home run.
Rita Ora will front ASOS magazine's September issue.

Breaking news: Rita Ora is officially blowing our pop culture minds. Besides her ridiculously infectious sound (see: "How We Do (Party)" for a refresher), she's been spitting some serious style game, too. We already know the Kosovo-born songbird loooooves to play dressup, and now she's at it again for ASOS. The new signee to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label is gracing the cover of the September issue, joining everyone from Shailene Woodley to Elizabeth Olsen in the mag's "It" girl ranks. The issue doesn't drop for a couple more months, but because we love you (and Rita, obviously) we've got a sneak peek right here!
Andrew Garfield on the cover of June/July Nylon Guys.

We've said it once, and we'll say it again: the summer of Andrew Garfield has officially begun. Not that we're complaining or anything, because we've had our eyes on the actor ever since last year's The Social Network and finally- FINALLY- we can catch him back on the big screen next month in The Amazing Spider-Man. But you don't even have to wait until July to get your Garfield fix, because his brand-new Nylon Guys cover can tide us over until then. The 28-year-old fronts the latest issue of the magazine, looking every bit the Hollywood heartthrob in a classic suit...the formal kind, not the Spidey variety.
Lady Gaga on the March 2011 cover of 'Vogue.'

Breaking fash magazine news! Lady Gaga is officially confirmed to cover Vogue's September issue, according to WWD. September is THE biggest/most important issue of the year in the fashion world, and we're sososo glad Vogue took a cue from Gaga's March cover (above), which flew off the shelves (It was their second best-selling issue of the year!). Apparently Mother Monster has already been shot by famed photogs Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (their photos include that gorge Kristen Stewart W cover from 2011 and Jennifer Lopez's red hot April Vogue cover), but that's not all! There is word she is ALSO coinciding this cover with the release of her debut fragrance. Eeee!
Blake Lively covers the July issue of Marie Claire.

Gossip Girl may be on summer vacation, but don't worry- Blake Lively hasn't gone all MIA on us until the show returns in the fall (whew!). In fact, it's kind of the opposite, since the actress has been popping up EVERYWHERE recently onscreen and off. She's already graced the cover of the new issue of Bullett-sharing the honors with Alexander Skarsgard- and now the actress is seeing red on the cover of July's Marie Claire magazine. Sporting everything from a cherry red satin tuxedo dress to a glittery Jenny Packham gown to a statement leather corset, the attention-grabbing spread is enough to make us forget about Serena Van Der Woodsen for the next few months. This summer, it's all about Blake.
Selena Gomez for 'Elle' Magazine.

Helloooooo, NURSE! Excuse us while we shove our eyeballs back into their sockets, but this Selena Gomez Elle Magazine spread is tongue-waggingly amazeballs. Our little Selenita is all grown up and flaunting some seriously sexy fashion. I mean, this is some opulent, glamourous Donatella Versace muse-type steez. For the newstand cover, Sel wears a heavily embellished mesh corset from Dolce & Gabbana with a bold scarlet lip and a grip of gold baubles. She's backdropped against a far-reaching horizon line of rolling ocean waves, onyx hair perfectly windswept, shimmering eyes framed by extra-strong brows.
