2NE1 on the cover of 'FAULT' Magazine.

It's kind of impossible not to fall in love with 2NE1. Like, the moment we realized they also share a serious obsession with Jeremy Scott and decked-out winged sneakers, we were ALL aboard this K-Pop train. Typically, the 4-piece girl group (which includes Dara, CL, Minzy and Bom) can be seen sporting larger-than-life technicolor onstage ensembles or killer customized streetwear, but when we peeped them on the recently-released Dreams & Nightmares issue of FAULT Magazine, they totally transitioned over to the dark side. *cue spooky ghost sounds* All four ladies were clad in fancy, all-black ensembles paired with animal-inspired headgear that looked straight from the Viking era. And we're not talking cutesy little horns here—we're talking insane headpieces with spikes on them. Yeah. Spikes, people. On horns. The cover shoot, photographed by Giuliano Bekor and styled by Avo Yermagyan, shows a darker, goth-glam side of the girl group, which was used as a double cover with Kelly Osbourne's goth glam shoot from a few weeks ago. OMG, our cold, black hearts can barely handle all this goth-y goodness.
Lauren Conrad on the November cover of 'Allure.'

If there's one thing we know about Lauren Conrad, it's that she's got her beauty game on LOCK. Whether she's switching up her strands with hot pink tips or teaching us how to do a step-by-step half moon mani, LC is always sharing the best beauty advice with her fellow ladies. I mean, it's no wonder she's releasing a book about, well, exactly that (appropriately titled Lauren Conrad BEAUTY) and was hand picked as Allure's gorgeous November cover girl. Presh! For her cover look, she ditched her typical wing-tipped liner for bare lids, luscious lashes, and a fire engine red matte lip. She wore her hair down and straight, which gives off a soft and beautiful beachy vibe that's totally reminiscent of her Laguna Beach days. She finished her look with a navy 3.1 Phillip Lim bikini top and matching cotton silk Dior toile skirt. (No one remind us that winter is just a couple months away, please. Kthxbi.)
Rihanna on the November cover of 'Vogue.'

"Since my first Vogue cover, I've gotten a lot more fearless, a lot freer, a lot more comfortable with who I am," said Rihanna in a behind-the-scenes video during her November Vogue cover shoot. Honestly, we couldn't have said it better ourselves. RiRi appeared on the most recent issue sporting a super-short pixie cut, seriously smokey eyes, a fire engine matte red lip and bold red strapless Valentino Resort lace gown exuding TONS confidence. It's a totally different vibe than her soft and ethereal April 2011 cover where she looked more unassuming and cautious in her mermaid-inspired ensemble. "As I've started to change and grow up, I've started to embrace that. I've started to infuse that in my fashion, as well as my music," Rihanna continued. We couldn't be MORE on-board with Rihanna's ever-evolving look, especially her freshly-shorn 'do. She said, "I love cutting my hair. The shorter it got, the more I was falling in love with it. I felt like the long hair was holding me back a little bit. I loved it, but it was always a thing I had to think about and make sure it was done. It felt brand new."
Taylor Swift on the November issue of 'Rolling Stone' and in New York City.

It's football season, ya'll, and who better to kick it off than THE ultimate homecoming queen herself, Taylor Swift? The pop star lands the November cover of Rolling Stone magazine decked out the ultimate sporty-meets-collegiate duds, proving that you don't have to be a hardcore jock to get in on the trend. We first spotted the look on Taylor out and about in New York City about a month ago, and now we're glad to know the real reason behind her adorable outfit. Dressed in light brown shorts, tomboyish oxfords, and a basic white t-shirt under a killer varsity jacket, it's enough to convince ANYONE that these high school staples are back in fashion.
Iggy Azalea covers the October issue of 'NYLON' Mexico.

Iggy Azalea's been teasing us about a top-secret NYLON project for what seems like forever— and while waiting is the worst, at least we've had other Iggy cameos like a Flavor mag spread and Dim Mak campaign to tide us over. But now we don't have to sit patiently refreshing our Twitter timeline, because the Aussie hip hop star's NYLON Mexico cover is finally here! Decked out in a Jeremy Scott top, Pavon NYC leggings and classic black Vans, the whole ensemble is a super animated take on the '90s club kid scene....so obviously we love it. And because we love YOU, too, we've done the hard work for you and tracked down how you can get Iggy's look yourself. Check it out after the jump!
Ke$ha on the October/November cover of 'VIBE.'

First off, WOWZA. Ke$ha sure knows how to grab our attention, amirite? *winks* The sultry blonde singer graced the October/November cover of VIBE in a retro glam, vampy-chic ensemble, which is a far cry from her typical all-American, '60s rocker style. We ain't mad, though! We love her platinum old Hollywood waves (it looks like her Skrillex-inspired shaved head is beginning to grow out!) paired with a super strong brow, kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip. She sported a GORGE long-sleeve, black lace gown with layered gold chains and tons of oversized rings. Mama like.
One Direction covers "Seventeen" magazine.

WOW. *initiates slow clap* Way to GO, Seventeen magazine. Adorable Brit-Irish boy band One Direction has FINALLY graced the cover of a major U.S. magazine (their first one!!), and guess what? It's YOURS. And we have to say, they're looking exceptionally heart-meltingly approachable in this blue hued, color-coordinated casual wear. Heathered navys and henleys and light-weight fall knits! *fans self with nearby notebook* HOW. ARE. THEY. SO. CUTE??? As Seventeen mag's newest cover boys, the 1D dudes also posed for a full inside spread complete with 5 individual shots of Louis, Zayn, Harry, Liam, and Niall that are both great at giving a better look at each guy's style, but also are PERFECT for locker-decorating.
Demi Lovato covers the November issue of 'Teen Vogue'.

Whether she's doing the '90s fashion thing or spearheading anti-bullying campaigns, there's no question that Demi Lovato is gorgeous both inside and out. We didn't think it was possible, but now the singer's taking her natural beauty to a whole new level in the November issue of Teen Vogue! The X-Factor host is the magazine's newest cover girl, gracing the front of the glossy for the second time—a rare honor she shares with stars like Victoria Justice and Karlie Kloss. But whereas Demi's 2010 cameo was with then-boyfriend Joe Jonas, this time the spotlight's ALL on her, and we couldn't be more excited. In the cover shot above she's working her bright blue ombre hair (remember when she debuted the look at the Teen Choice Awards!?) with a breezy Guess blouse and printed Marc Jacobs skirt. We're loving the bold eyebrows, nude lips, dark nail polish, AND the chance to scope out her cross tattoo up close. It all comes together for a result that's totally fresh, modern, and injected with a burst of personality....kind of like our girl Demi herself.
Jennifer Lawrence on the November cover of Vogue UK.

It's undeniable: Jennifer Lawrence has made it. She's been nominated for an Oscar (for her role as Ree in Winter's Bone), been in a gigantic hit movie, and even has a Barbie made in her likeness--if that's not success we really don't know what is. But up until now, guess what? She's never been on the cover of any version of Vogue magazine. Sure, she's done W, Rolling Stone, and yes, appeared in a spread in the American edition of Vogue, but never the cover. It's all gonna change when the November issue of Vogue UK is released, with Lawrence absolutely killing the cover shot. Wearing an ornate black and white, body con dress, loose waves and orangey red lipstick, Lawrence looks much more relaxed than she did on her futuristic bird themed W cover, but still looks 100% as glamorous.
Adam Lambert on his new 'Trespassing' EP cover.

Whoa, are we having déjà vu? Adam Lambert released his Trespassing remix cover art today (the EP will be available to purchase October 16 and pre-orders are being accepted now), but we were doing some serious double takes when we first peeped this image. Adam's silhouette stands against a golden-yellow background with a wide-brimmed Stetson hat that casts an aura of mystery (and '90s throwback style) over Glambert's entire look—especially paired with those pitch-black aviators. We also have a LOVELY eyeful of supple black leather thanks to his high-collar, asymmetrical jacket (with the collar folded down), but it's all a little too familiar for our taste. We racked our brains and—A HA!—FINALLY remembered what this reminds us of... Ms. Azealia Banks!
