Rihanna on the cover of 'Glamour.'
No, your eyes aren't deceiving you: that is Rihanna with her short-lived curly 'do on the cover of Glamour's November issue! This haircut existed for a fleeting moment (OK, a few days) in early August, right before she made the switch to her current steelo: the mullet.
The cover is simple: a smoldering, smokey-eyed Rihanna, gold hoops, and a teeny-tiny collarbone tattoo. She's in a long-sleeved Dior bodysuit, but none of that even matters, TBH, because we can't stop looking at that hair. It' so curly! It's so full! It's so well-maintained! We don't spot a single fly-away. #HERO
Iggy Azalea covers 'Paper' magazine.
In between the VMAs and performing and making ALL of the rounds at ALL of the Fashion Weeks (for realsies), Iggy Azalea somehow managed to find the time to pose for the latest issue of Paper magazine. We’ve seen her rock a LOT of looks since she first twerked onto the scene—from Bollywood dancer to trailer park renegade to high rollin’ showgirl to bootlicious Bettie Page (is anyone else sweating trying to keep up?)—but this grunge goth steez she’s sportin’ on the cover of Paper’s “Nightlife” issue? This is brand spankin’ new and we hate it. JK, WE LOVE IT. But seriously, we love it. She is channeling Sky Ferreira x vintage Courtney Love in a major way and it is giving us LIFE. It’s no wonder that the 23-year-old Australian rapper is doing ‘90s right, though. Her fuzzy plaid cardigan, leopard-splattered dress, dot tights, belt and tiny pearl strands are ALL courtesy of Hedi Slimane and Saint Laurent. (Who, duh, just happen to count both Ferreira and Love as muses.)
Katy Perry on the cover of 'Billboard.'
Billboard just released the cover to their upcoming issue, and it features none other than Katy Perry! The cover is v. similar to the Prism cover art: soft lighting and flowers, which makes sense, because both covers were shot by Ryan McGinley. So, is the Billboard cover a BIG REVEAL of what Katy's wearing on the Prism cover, or did Katy and Ryan hit up two different flower fields on separate occasions? Katy's hair and makeup are similar (read: natural looking) on both covers, so it's totally plausible they were both shot in one go, which prooooobably means *BIG REVEAL* Katy is wearing clothes on the Prism cover!
Miley Cyrus for 'Fashion' magazine.

Another day, another Miley Cyrus magazine cover, AMIRITE? But wait—there’s something different about this one. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but it definitely stands out. *scratches head* Is it the lipstick? Nah, she sports that shade of red on the reg. *strokes imaginary beard* The hair? No, that’s pretty standard, too. OH. *light bulb* SHE’S CLOTHED! I mean, mostly. She’s at least wearing more than what we’re used to seeing her in these days (nothing), which, in Miley’s words, puts her in a class of her own. “What I wear adds a factor that other girls can’t compete with,” Miley told the mag. Go on brush ya shoulders off!
Hailee Steinfeld for 'ASOS' magazine.

Hailee Steinfeld stays steady killing it with her style, so seeing her on the cover of ASOS magazine was a total DUH moment. “Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in,” she told the mag. “I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards ... It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything. Now it’s become a huge part of my life.” OMG, SAMESIES! I didn't get into fashion until I was flown out to Paris for MY first show either! JK I have never been "flown" anywhere, unless you count my parents paying for half my flight home for Christmas.
At 16, the former face of Miu Miu makes high fashion look easy. She’s forever rocking the biggest names in the biz and has a keen eye for quirky details. Needless to say, if I can’t pay my rent next month, it’s because I purchased EVERYTHING she’s modeling. On the November cover of the U.K. retailer’s monthly mag, Hailee appears to have stumbled up on a super-sweet rope swing while frolicking in the woods, as you do in your Chelsea ankle boots. Wearing head-to-toe ASOS goods, I suddenly find myself in desperate need of an over-sized color block coat and leopard print pants: two things I would have never paired together on my own, but suddenly makes all the sense in the world.
You know that feeling you get sometimes on Saturday mornings? The one where you wake up at noon in a panic, momentarily convinced that you've missed something HUGELY important, like work or a test or the beginning of an America’s Next Top Model marathon? Well, I've started to feel that way if I don’t get my daily dose of half-nude Miley Cyrus photos, so thank goodness they’re here before lunch today! *PHEW*
For her first EVER Rolling Stone cover, Smiley Miley did what she’s been doing best, as of late—she stripped down and stuck her tongue out. And no, that dream catcher tattoo, while prominent in the shot, isn't new (in case you were wondering)—but Cyrus did get the words “ROLLING $TONE” tattooed on the bottom of her feet for the occasion. (Not pictured, and also: OUCH.) Not to worry though, because Miley's feet will forever be protected by her precious fur-lined Celine flip-flops. And we do mean forever, thanks to her new "homie," Kanye West, who bought her FIVE pairs of the thousand-dollar shoes after she happened to casually mention that her original pair was falling apart. NBD.
Dang, y'all. If we didn't know any better, we'd swear Rita Ora was a full-time model (rather than, y'know, a most-of-the-time singer who only moonlights as a model). She looks the part, she WERQUES the clothes, and she just happens to be BFFs with one of the most-wanted
eyebrows walkers in the runway game. All things considered, peep this spread she did for S Moda magazine and try to pick your jaw up off the floor because ZOMG! She is giving some seriously fierce face in every single shot and *bows down* WE'RE NOT WORTHY! *more bowing* WE'RE NOT WORTHY! (OK, we're getting up now...)
For her stunning cover, the Brit singer served delicate burgundy lace in a turtleneck dress by Todd Lynn that, TBH, makes me very, very nervous—so many possibilities for snagging! Rita let her roots hang out with a swept-back bed-head 'do, smoky eyes and otherwise minimal makeup. We're also kind of envious of her inch-long crimson-colored nails, but since they'd probably prevent us from doing our jobs (#computers), we'll just take that bundle of gold midi-rings instead. No, but seriously—they're from ASOS, and we need to order them right now so BRB. (You can get a similar stack here.)
Child star, shmild star. At 23, Emma Watson is a grown
Muggle woman—and The Edit’s got the pictures to prove it. Polished, poised and far, FAR from Hermione, the actress and eco-activist was recently tapped by Green Carpet Challenge creator, Livia Firth, to star in an editorial spread that supports ethical fashion AND looks super pretty. BTW, if you’re scratching your head about the phrase “ethical fashion,” it’s not as cray as it may seem. And it’s not all tie-dye and Tevas and giant threads of harsh hemp made into a basket-weave bodice. (Although, if something like that exists, I would very much like to see it.)
HELLO, NEW DESKTOP BACKGROUND. In a recent spread from T Magazine, Justin Timberlake pierces our hearts with his eyes and makes us want to live in black and white FOREVER. He also appears quite pensive in kind of a worrisome way, in which case, we are totally here for you, JT. Seriously, cry us a river. (Heh.) We are available at a moment’s notice if you need a shoulder to weep on when Jessica isn’t around, or whatever.
Iggy Azalea on the cover of "Complex" Magazine.

Just as we were getting ready to say goodbye to summer, Complex magazine goes and releases a summery, Hawaiian-themed cover and spread featuring Iggy Azalea. Now we won't be able to leave summer behind until the magazine leaves stands in November. SUMMER 4EVER, Y'ALL. The colorful cover features a naked Iggy (*GASP* SCANDAL!) on a bed of flower leis, a few of which are strategically placed to cover some crucial areas. If this cover doesn't make you want to drench your bed in flower petals and then roll around in them, nothing ever will.
