If y'all aren't watching Teen Wolf right now, you're missing out on some serious amazingness. See: One of the show's stars Mr. Colton Haynes (above). This TV drama is not only a killer (heh) show, but it's also bringing to light some of the rising Young Hollywood talent and their incredible style. We already knew that Colton has some serious acting chops, but, um, we're prettttty sure modeling couture clothes comes in at a close second. Colton covers the July/August issue of Essential Homme and his sultry summery spread is surely making our heads spin! In a dramatic (and inviting!) poolside shot, Colton sports a cashmere Gucci cardigan with nothing underneath (GULP) paired with floral jacquard Gucci pants that we LOVE. He finished the look with some patent leather Hermès oxfords and a clean-cut 'do. Mmmmm.
Rihanna for "Harper's Bazaar."

If you ever get a chance to take a visit to the mystical and magical MTV Style headquarters, you'll find us swimming eyeballs deep in fashion mags. Maybe you're envisioning all of the clumsy papercuts a scene like that would yield, but just pump the brakes on The Judgement Train™ for a second because being in these close-quarters with glossies is something we really enjoy. And as long as magazines like Harper's Bazaar keep pumping out brain-pettingly beautiful spreads like this here cover shoot with Rihanna, we won't be reconsidering our paper-wading practices any time soon.
Emma Stone on the cover of British "Vogue."

Just when we thought Emma Stone's reign over the summer magazine cover game was tapering off, along came August and the month's installment of British Vogue. The Amazing Spider-Man leading lady has graced the cover of more than four magazines in the last month, from Vogue to New York Magazine to Italian Glamour. Apparently, just because the Fourth of July is now under our belts, Emma doesn't have any plans to relinquish her title as Summer Cover Queen™ any time soon.
Kelly Clarkson on the August 2012 issue of 'Lucky' magazine.

We could NOT have been happier when we discovered Lucky magazine was coming out with its first-ever music issue this August (I mean, fashion + music = haiiiii), but when we realized Kelly Clarkson was the cover girl, our minds basically exploded. No one truly encompasses that all-American look like Kelly does, so of course she went for a jeans and T-shirt ensemble for her cover debut. She wore a coated tweed Rachel Comey coral jacket with a burgundy scoop neck Michael Stars top, a brown Lucky belt, Diesel jeans and tons of beaded jewelry.This is an outfit Kelly would TOTALLY wear IRL, and we love that! She even said in her Lucky interview, "In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans." Now THAT'S commitment. #denimdiapers
Georgia May Jagger for Material Girl.

Remember back in May when we reported that the team behind Material Girl (um, that would be Lourdes "Lola" Leon and her mom, Madonna) had recruited Brit model Georgia May Jagger for the label's new ads? Now the campaign has finally dropped, and let's just say it's a collision of rock star magic. As the daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, Georgia May already has music in her blood. And for Material Girl Fall 2012, she's returning to her rock star roots in minidresses, combat boots, and motorcycle jackets.
Victoria Justice for V Magazine.

There are many people we really truly love here at MTV Style. One is Victorious star Victoria Justice who we're having a great time watching grow up into a full-fledged fashionista right before our eyes. Another is the positively RADIANT Drew Barrymore, mastermind director behind the Best Coast "Our Deal" supervideo. You can imagine, then, our unbridled SMILE ATTACK upon first glance of this Drew-shot feature of Justice in the latest issue of V Magazine.
Grimes, Sky Ferreira and Charli XCX on the cover of V Magazine.

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.
