Holy transformations! The Daniel Radcliffe depicted in this Bullett magazine cover story is decidedly NOT the bespectacled wizardboy the world was first introduced to by Warner Bros. in the Harry Potter film series. He's also not the bow tie-clad window cleaner turned businessman in How to Succeed on Broadway, either. Bullett has portrayed Radcliffe as the burgeoning heartthrob, a role he carries SO so well and one we, frankly, are dying to see him in more. I mean, just look at the upward looking smoldering gaze. That effortless swoop of hair perched above a starched collar, pop of scarlet, and piercing blue eyes. The tasteful hint of facial scruff. YOWZAAAA, Mama like. And this thing only gets BETTER as you flip through the pages.

We have to agree with Rollacoaster magazine's cover line "We Heart Solange" because what's not to like about Beyoncé's fresh and fashion-forward younger sis? She's constantly impressing us with her wonderfully unconventional wardrobe choices (have you been following her daily outfits on Vogue UK?) so we were beyond stoked when we spotted Sol fronting the British mag. On the cover, Solange wears a popped collar denim jacket by Levi's and amazing hexagonal Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses. She kept her hair and makeup au naturel, adding a cool '70s feel to the shoot.
Nicki Minaj goes ethereal for the February/March issue of Vibe! The fashion-forward rapper donned a sky-high diamond tiara, off-the-shoulder silver brocade and chiffon gown, and fiery red locks. This outfit paired with a regal stance and "don't mess with me attitude" give us serious Snow Queen vibes. Her beauty game is cheery and bright against her silvery ensemble—she wears light pink eye shadow with a soft cat eye, hot pink cheeks, magenta lips, and, um, look at those nails! Is that an ice cream cone nail design on her tips or have we gone completely cray? We're mighty convinced she's sporting food as nail art, and we're so not mad at that.

We knew it was coming. No, we're not just talking about the full-on Grammy Awards sweep Adele achieved (SIX awards!) last night, but also the March 2012 cover of Vogue magazine, which just hit the fashion wires. When it was first revealed that she would be shot for the magazine, there was resounding applause from women the world over. The magazine has often been criticized for its lack of diversity where the cover is concerned, so the choice of the bodacious and beautifully curvy Adele was met with triumphant fanfare. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Pigott, she is captured in a full-lipped, cat-eyed, classic Hollywood meets Raphaelite painting sort of way, and HOLY BAZOOMBAGE is she stunning. In the accompanying cover article, she opens up to Vogue about her breakup, Grammy nods, Beyoncé, and just how she felt on the MTV VMA red carpet.

I mean, can you even? Because THIS? This is everything. Lana Del Rey shot by Ellen von Unwerth for the music issue of Lovecat magazine dropping Friday, Feb. 17. Yeah, just let these separate pieces of information greet each other in your brain and MAKE. IT. SPLODE.

Lovecat mag founder and editor Prince Chenoa nutshells it thus: "We wanted to celebrate women in music! And there's only one woman in music right now making all the noise, no matter what her critics say, and that's the gorgeous and talented Ms. Lana Del Rey. Plus, what other photographer can capture that essence and beauty like Ellen von Unwerth?"
Truth. And MTV Style's got THE exclusive.

Electronic dance music gods Diplo, Skrillex, and A-Trak cover the latest issue of Billboard magazine, and, well, we're a little swoony. First of all, we're super into the fact that electronic music is having its fair share of attention these days, and that it has been catapulted to the forefront of popular music again thanks to pioneering DJs and producers like these fine fellows. At a time when the way we discover music—let alone the way artists release it—is forever changing, it's refreshing to see what was often considered a subculture scene find its way to the more mainstream. Also, these three gentlemen have several Grammy Award nominations between them. Oh, and they're seriously stylin'. Let's break down this mega blazer-slash-varsity-jacket-slash-scarf action bizness because, BOY, are we're feeling it.
Lana Del Rey for British "Vogue."

OK, it's official. Lana Del Rey is EVERYWHERE. The "Video Games" chanteuse's incandescent rise to fame has become a cross-continental event. Not only has she arrived stateside in a sort of Lana-Turner-plucked-from-the-stool-of-a-diner sort of way, she's a total sensation over in the U.K. now, too. Case in point, the cover of British Vogue. Not to shout it or anything, but this is MAYJAHHH. Shot by world renowned photo king Mario Testino wearing a gorgeous yellow broderie anglaise blouse from Louis Vuitton's spring collection, Del Rey looks like a retro Hollywood starlet in an art deco jeweled hairpiece and cat eyes but keeps her trademark Brooklyn hipstah cred with a three-fingered matte sparkle knuckle ring. Also? British Vogue thinks she's "Oh so pretty!" and also fascinating. What else did they have to say?
Azealia Banks for "Wonderland."

And so continues Azealia Banks's steady conquest of the fashion world. The latest issue of Wonderland magazine (you know, the one with Nicki Minaj and her hot rod-clad bazooms on the cover) features the Yung Rapunxel in its inside pages gabbing about her background and straight up dripping in Spring 2012 Miu Miu with a smattering of vintage. You'd think with her recent ties to Nicola Formichetti and Karl Lagerfeld that she'd be swaddled in Mugler or a grip of Chanel interlocking C's, but no. This time AZ is styled in one of the most whimiscally feminine names on the block, and yet she's still able to make thick tailored A-line skirts and structured kiss lock bags look tough.

Oh, la la! Nicki Minaj's one fiery '50s girl in the February/March issue of Wonderland magazine. We totally get a Pink Ladies-from-Grease girl gang vibe with her bright pink cotton candy curled bob and matching Prada Cadillac Coupe de Ville printed jacket and dress. We love how she added a bit of edginess to her ensemble by throwing on a gold-plated tooth necklace and gold snake ring, but the fiercest thing of all are those nails! She sported royal purple, gold, and pink nail art on her extra long stiletto tips. Uh-mazing. Her beauty game is absolutely out of CONTROL—we could spot those lashes from (literally) miles away, and she totally took the cat eye to the extreme. In traditional Barbz fashion, she sported some light pink lips, but this time used a fuchsia lip liner to define her pout. She finished the look with some hot pink, '80s-inspired cheek-defining blush and sported some serious sparklers for hoop earrings. (Do those things hurt?)
Selena Gomez on the March "Cosmopolitan" cover.

Dang! Selena Gomez looks very, um, grown up on the March cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. The 19-year-old singer showed off her sultry side in a plunging pink and red floral Nanette Lepore dress paired with...no shoes! She looks totally beach ready in her summery ensemble, and we're jealous. *huddles closer to heater* Her beauty game is sooo on lock—she sported a shimmery smokey eye, peach blush, and a glossy pink lip paired with fire engine red nails and (of course) perfectly wind-blown hair. We like her minimal accessories, especially the teeny, tiny gold heart pendant around her neck. But gorgeous looks aside, we HAVE to get all mom-ish for a minute here. Isn't our girl Selena still a wee bit young to be put next to such suggestive headlines in a dress that low? Call us crazy, but we think it all looks a little bit out of place.
