I think it's pretty safe to say that Emma Stone is one of the most universally loved young actresses in the game right now. She's beautiful, talented, sartorially adventurous, and hilariously adorably down-to-earth. With a volatile combination like that, it's no wonder the magazines of the world are all clamoring to feature her in their pages and on their covers, and in turn, people are nabbing up issues fronted by the Gangster Squad star left and right. Miss Stone has racked up another international glossy cover for her CV this month with Glamour UK featuring her as their February 2013 cover girl. Thing thing is, though, being avid watchers of her every move, we totally recognize this cover shot, and it's from — wait for it — almost two years ago.
AnnaSophia Robb for "Teen Vogue."

The Carrie Diaries doesn't premiere until January 14, but AnnaSophia Robb is already being forecast as one of fashion's next major "It" girls. She hits a kind of style star jackpot by undertaking the role of a young Carrie Bradshaw in a world that's not only post-Sex And The City but post-Gossip Girl, so it comes as no surprise that she's already starting to rack up magazine features. Robb illustrates, though, in this Teen Vogue cover spread that she's absolutely worth the hype, knocking the '60s mod steez just as far out of the park as her '80s Carrie togs.
Rita Ora in a custom jacket on the cover of 'ASOS' magazine.

When Rita Ora covered ASOS magazine way back in September, we obsessed over the singer's amazing studded denim jacket— and mourned the fact that we couldn't score her custom topper for ourselves. Clearly we weren't the only ones bummed out, because thanks to ALL of the requests to buy the one-of-a-kind number, ASOS has officially added it to its stock! And while the statement piece is definitely not cheap at $351, just think of it as an all-inclusive deal to alleviate some buyer's guilt (trust us, it'll make you feel better!). After all, the bomber is a complete mishmash of materials, patterns, and colors. With silver and gold spikes, jeweled details, and a satin paneled artsy print, it's basically every item in our closet crammed into one signature item. How's THAT for more bang for your buck?!
HAI INTERNET! *waves* Whew, it feels like we've been apart forever (OK, it's been, like, a week), but I'm really excited to kick off 2013 with a blog post featuring one of my most favorite peeps of all time, Ms. Lana Del Rey. And, no, this is not just another celeb spotting of the singer sporting her signature retro waves and a short white frock, this is Lana gracing the cover of Rolling Stone Mexico wearing nothing but--wait for it--long johns. You read that right, people. Long. Johns. She wore a cropped, ribbed white sweater with silver trimmed long underwear, gold hoops, a watch, and, well, not much else. She kept her beauty game super soft and simple with center-parted locks, a killer cat eye and nude lips. She finished the entire look with an aerobic-inspired pose and a super wide smile. Get it, girl.
Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls cover Vogue.

In 2012, House of Style co-hosts Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss became bonafide mainstays on the pages of the fashion’s heaviest-hitting publications. Karlie and Joan are individual powerhouses, but this year they really became a gruesome twosome. We'd like to think that House of Style solidified their BFFL status, but other iconic moments together included storming the runway at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and landing individual covers for W Magazine's July issue. With a glowing (and growing) CV, it comes as no surprise that BOTH Karlie and Joan ranked among Vogue's top 10 featured models for 2012.
It's no secret that 2NE1 and Jeremy Scott are total besties (he designed their first world tour outfits, after all) so whenever the K-pop group and badass designer get together, we KNOW it's gonna be good. See: The latest issue of Hong Kong mag Ketchup. Umm, haiii! 2NE1's own CL graced the cover (alone!) decked out in Jer's latest duds, and we CANNOT get enough of all that gold. Jeremy tweeted that CL is sporting his gold flourish silk bomber jacket, scarf print dress and flourish Jeremy Scott x Linda Farrow shades. Also, PUH-LEASE notice the dangling pearl tear drops on those bad boys. *claps* Her beauty game is equally out of control—she wears a shiny, fire engine red lip, a platinum blonde high bun, and a killer talon ring. For her jewelry, she amped up the gold even MORE with a thick medallion chain and matching earrings.
Gwen Stefani covers the January issue of 'Vogue'.

Along with the fact that she's, you know, a rock star, Gwen Stefani also has her own L.A.M.B. label, an upcoming collab with Fred Perry, and a street style killer enough to make pretty much anyone swoon. So considering her fashion cred, it's suuuuper surprising that the No Doubt frontwoman hasn't landed the cover of VOGUE since '04. But get ready, because she's baaaack! Yep, the singer, mom, and fashion designer is the newest cover star, gracing the January issue of the glossy dressed in Saint Laurent. We're talking head-to-toe, fresh-off-the-runway, Hedi Slimane realness. WHOA.
Elle Fanning covers 'BULLETT's' Surreal issue.

Whether they're transforming an underground style icon like Alice Glass into a bride, morphing an ingenue like Elizabeth Olsen into elfin queens (with pink hair, no less) or just serving up our quarterly dose of eye candy, we can always count of the creative minds behind BULLETT to do so in ridiculously original ways. But they've truly outdone themselves in the magazine's new Surrealist issue, turning Elle Fanning into a work of art— literally. The 14-year-old Ginger and Rosa actress looks every bit the part of a bonafide movie star on the cover, working a bejeweled Miu Miu midnight blue satin dress, fresh-faced makeup, and dreamy expression against the blue-gray background. And while the image is compelling enough to make us stop and take notice, the final touches- colorful rainbow streaks swooped right across Elle's wispy blonde hair- make it pretty much impossible to turn away.
Adam Lambert covers the 'Obsession' issue of Fiasco Magazine.

Excuse us for a sec while we pick our jaws up off the floor....because WOW. How amazing does Adam Lambert look on the cover of Fiasco magazine?! We may know and love the singer for his totally OTT outfits (see exhibits A, B, and C), but who knew he looked SO good rocking clean cut minimalism, too? He's on the new "Obsession" issue for the London-based publication, smizing hard in leather-trimmed overcoat, collared shirt and black tie. Oh, and get this— there's absolutely ZERO eyeliner in sight! This no-makeup look paired with his slick side-parted gray hair is such a departure from Adam's signature statement aesthetic, we almost wouldn't recognize him were it not for those piercing blue eyes. Bottom line: this is Glambert as we've never seen him before.
Rita Ora goes girly for 'Glamour' UK and models masculine pieces for 'Harper's Bazaar' UK.

With a handful of amazing singles, unforgettable live performances, and a new modeling contract under her belt, 2012 has been an absolutely epic year for Rita Ora. We're not exactly fortune-tellers, but we're still willing to place bets that 2013 is going to be equally as awesome for Jay-Z's Roc Nation protege. The U.K. singer already has one foot firmly planted in the future, with two magazine cameos for January, showing off just HOW versatile the star really is. The 22-year-old shows her girlier side on the cover of the new issue of Glamour UK working a sweepy side ponytail, a floral Christian Dior shirtdress, and not a sneaker in sight (!). It might be a different Rita than the one we're used to obsessing over for her kooky-cool style, but the girl pulls off this pretty femininity perfectly. Almost as perfectly as she does the menswear-inspired ensembles for Harper's Bazaar UK, we might add. Because let's be honest: two Ritas are ALWAYS better than one.
