Ooh la la! Our Hills girl Lauren Conrad bares all on the May cover of Glamour magazine by posing topless poolside. We're not used to seeing the saucier side of LC, but we have to say, she looks GREAT. She totally channeled a soft, '60s sex kitten look with her tousled bouffant 'do, liquid liner, and light pink lips. She even sported high-waisted Blumarine flowery bikini bottoms that are subtly sexy with her overall ensemble (if we can call it that!). We're not surprised to see LC in something super dainty and girly—I mean, have you not seen her entire LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's collection? Flirty frocks and florals galore! But, dang, could Lauren look any MORE like a cool, toned, and tanned California girl? Nope!
The Fabulous Fanning Fashion Sisters™ are at it again! You might recall the fashion face-off heard 'round zee fashion world earlier this year when acting wunderkind siblings, Dakota and Elle Fanning, were featured on competing February fashion titles. Well, the phenomenon has happened yet again, as Dakota graces this month's My Fair Lady-esque Wonderland magazine cover while Elle is featured in a sun-kissed California shoot for Self-Service magazine. Our question is: Who triumphs in this international magazine fashion face-off?

It is, in fact, uncomfortably difficult to tear myself away from unabashedly STARING at these images of Douglas Booth in the latest issue of Bullett Magazine. I mean, seeeeriously, the happy juxtaposition of Booth's fateful genetics and the fantastic rugged-yet-also-tailored styling of Ruben Moreira elicits the kind of slack-jawed joie de vivre that is just SO necessary on a Friday morning, AMIRITE? I know I am.
Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of "Rolling Stone."

Jennifer Lawrence is all over the place, which is (wonderfully) unsurprising. If you don't know by now, she's the star of the mega-juggernaut book-to-film franchise, The Hunger Games, which has pretty much dominated popular culture for the last week (and a year before that if you count the fanaticism surrounding the awesome book series). The gal's working overtime in the publicity department, too, as she's appeared on ohhhhh, EVERY talk show on the planet, not to mention on various international mag covers (hi, Interview Germany). Her latest cover for the April issue of Rolling Stone is all-American, though, right down to the white T-shirt, dusty jeans, and windswept hair. We might go so far as to say in that it also includes that age-old tradition of pin-up fantasy, with what we can only describe as a generous display of nippulous areolasis.
Jennifer Lawrence for German "Interview" magazine.

In case you've been hibernating or took a brief sojourn to a distant planet, The Hunger Games opened this weekend to universal pandemonium. (PANEM-onium? Heh.) It pretty much dominated all conversation over the course of three days (as well as social media feeds, #srsly), and, as predicted, Jennifer Lawrence has been catapulted to mega-stardom for her searing portrayal of lead character Katniss Everdeen. Not only did she make the rounds of practically every talk show last week (even telling David Letterman that she was "a troll"), the fash media tracked her every style move, including that to-die gold Prabal Gurung dress she wore to the premiere. Well, now there's even more frenzy-making J-Law action to discuss regarding her Vegas showgirl leotard moment on the cover of Interview Germany.
So Swatch is pitting magazines against one another with their latest campaign for their New Gent Lacquered watches. Instead of shooting a set of ads themselves, they're running a contest in which they've rounded up some of the coolest glossies on the globe to help them track down "the world's most stylish and inspirational street," and YOU can help them pick the winner. Major incentive?: The mag that wins will throw a MAY-JOR street party come June. In the running for the crown is V magazine, repping the artist-teeming East Village in New York City, and for its competitive advertorial, V has elicited the help of three of our favorite emerging musicians: Grimes, Iggy Azalea, and SSION.

This just in: MTV News got the exclusive first look at Kat Graham's "Put Your Graffiti On Me" single cover art, and we had to find out who made her iridescent rainbow rhinestone-encrusted body suit IMMEDIATELY upon viewing. We turned to none other than Kat's stylist Brett Alan Nelson who tipped us off that The Blonds created this gorge plunging number. It's definitely not Kat's first time around The Blonds block, though—The Vampire Diaries star sported a silver bedazzled bustier and spiky gold and chrome onesie by the designer twosome for her "I Want It All" video from last year. For her cover outfit, Brett added a touch of grunge to her look by tying a plaid shirt around her waist (which she also did at SXSW this weekend), but kept her hair sleek and shiny in a high ponytail. She accessorized with some silver hoops and not much else (um, with a bod like THAT, who needs anything else?) and added a touch of sultry cat eyeliner to her lids. The single officially drops on Monday and to hear Kat talk more about her budding music career, check out MTV News or watch the video below!
Nicki Minaj on the cover of "Complex" Magazine.

Complex magazine continues to celebrate its 10th anniversary by releasing yet ANOTHER spellbinding cover (following Justin Bieber's jarring fashion beat down)—this time with Ms. Nicki Minaj. Nicki dished out one striped ensemble after another in her cover shoot photographed by Christian Anwander and styled by Rose Garcia. On the cover, she rocked a messy white blunt-banged bob with a black and neon green boat neck Ralph Lauren Purple Label sweater, killer rainbow nail art, and her signature light pink lips. Makeup artist Joyce Bonelli dotted Nicki's nose with some tribal face paint, but we're guessing that "10" around the eyes is pure CGI. If not, we seriously owe Joyce a round of drinks for making it look so perfect, but judging by the black and white tongue, we're not too convinced just yet. In the cover story, Miss Info sat down with the rap goddess to talk about the pressures of being a female in the music world and her burgeoning fashion empire that we can't wait to hear more about.
Justin Bieber on split covers of "Complex" magazine.

And a good Monday morning to you, TOO, Complex and Justin Bieber! As a doting Belieber, it's SUUUUPER jarring to see the "Baby" heartthrob bruised and bloodied and seemingly in pain, especially immediately upon turning on my computer. *rubs eyes vigorously in horror* In honor of the mag's 10th Anniversary Issue, Justin graces two of the monumental covers gussied up in a tux with bandages and a steak-soaked black eye as a physical/artistic representation of the growing pains experienced by both the newly 18-year-old Bieber and birthday-celebrating Complex itself.
Jennifer Lopez on the April cover of 'Vogue'.

Easily one of the most recognized women on the planet, Jennifer Lopez is having a fashion moment. Yes, she's had MANY throughout her decades-long music and film career. Who can ever forget that history-making cut-down-to-there Grammy dress? YOWZA. But now that she's captured a nation's heart as one of American Idol's most beloved judges, there's even more rabid attention being made about each outfit she wears on the show. (And she turns it OUT night after night waltzing to her seat in an array of peacock color ensembles and to-die-for heels.) Thus, it's no surprise to see her on the coveted April cover of Vogue magazine stunning our eye sockets in red. Seriously, though, our eyes are popping out of our heads with this shoot.
