One Direction on the cover of 'Seventeen' Magazine.

When we heard One Direction would be on the cover of Seventeen Magazine's December/January issue, we were, obviously, excited for new photos to adorn our bedroom walls with/glue onto a body pillow to sleep next to. But then, we saw the cover and were like: hold up, Harry's hair hasn't had that beautiful swoosh in, like, almost a year. Liam and Zayn haven't been this clean shaven for months! Do these five guys have Benjamin Button syndrome or what? Then, after racking through our encyclopedic knowledge of all 1D photo shoots in the history of the world, we realized we'd seen this photo before!
Lady Gaga for 'Attitude' magazine.
For the December cover of Attitude magazine, Lady Gaga dyed her hair grey, refused to wash it for three weeks and repeatedly rubbed her strands with beeswax like kindling for a fire. JK! She’s wearing another wig. Quite possibly her heaviest wig yet! I mean, just look at that stack. That thing weights at least as much as a Pomeranian, if not a full-grown Corgi. Loyal Little Monsters may recognize this big ol’ heap o’ hair from a rando ARTPOP promo pic that Gaga tweeted back in September, where she was snapped sitting in a chair constructed of computer chips while wearing a burlap onesie. Naturally.
Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of 'InStyle.'
Behold pre-pixie Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of the December issue of InStyle. The cover captured J.Law before her major chop and dye job, at a time when, according to the Hunger Games star, her hair was an "awkward length" and "awkward color." Yesterday, during a Yahoo Fireside Chat, Jennifer said she cut it because it "...couldn't get any uglier." It's really not that bad, Jenn! It looks sleek slicked down on this cover and, TBH, we're feeling the "awkward" length, but if you're not happy, we're not happy.
Gisele and Daft Punk for 'The Wall Street Journal' Magazine.

Aww SNAP! Karlie, take your earrings off and put your dukes up, girl. Gisele just popped up on the cover of the Wall Street Journal magazine with BOTH of your men. Oh, you didn’t know Karlie Kloss was in a thruple with Daft Punk? JK, she’s not. But she did appear in an oddly similar editorial spread with the helmet-clad electronic duo for Vogue in July. Those two are gettin’ lucky, indeed.
For the November cover of the Wall Street Journal magazine (which was shot by Terry Richardson), Daft Punk got handsy with Gisele Bündchen, wearing what looks to be the ~exact~ same helmets they wore in Vogue. Hmm. *strokes imaginary beard* But hey, at least they took their suit game in a totally different direction with some SUPER shiny sequined blazers and slim-line tuxedo pants. Oh, wait. Turns out that while their suits may appear to be from another planet entirely, Saint Laurent actually dressed Daft Punk for *both* editorial spreads. WHATEVER. Maybe they're just particular! Besides, they’re musicians, not models!
Gisele strikes a power pose on her WSJ cover in a navy, plunging, semi-sheer Atelier Versace jumpsuit and surprisingly, doesn't seem to have a problem with how close that one gold guy's hand is to her, um, ladyplace. (*Insert another "Get Lucky" joke here.*)
Demi Lovato for 'Latina.'

Dang, Demi! And here we thought your last magazine cover was a knock-out. I mean, to be fair, it was. But this—this is like, stutter-inducing gorgeous. Latina magazine named Demi Lovato one of this year's "Latina Women of the Year," and it's easy to see why: the 21-year-old singer has been RULL busy over the last 12 months, doing things like singing catchy songs (duh), hosting The X Factor (for the second season in a row), collaborating on her own signature nail art collections, making charitabe trips to Africa and, oh, rocking the heck out of blue hair, which, TBH, is no easy feat.
And even though our dreams of a blue-haired Demi cover have yet to come true (*sigh*), she looks G-G-GREAT as a blonde. (Like we said, stutter-inducing.) Especially when paired with a body-con black dress, embellished cropped jacket, a majorly stunning necklace and a come-hither stare that, quite frankly, is making us blush.
Ariana Grande for 'Complex' Magazine.

When we think of Ariana Grande, the first thing that comes to mind (after her multi-octave, mini-Mariah voice, of course) is her super-girly, vintage style. She’s like a tiny ‘50s housewife, but with way longer hair and way higher heels. The squeaky-clean starlet has never met a floral, a-line dress she didn't like, which is why we ACTUALLY gasped out loud when we saw her new photos for Complex magazine. Grande channels gangster glam in the mag’s December issue and resembles a mob boss’ well-dressed wife or like, the deviant star of a film noir.
Selena Gomez on the cover of 'Teen Vogue.'

It's been three months since we've seen Selena Gomez grace the cover of a magazine—she has been a little busy with her Stars Dance tour, after all—but now she's back on stands for the December cover of Teen Vogue. Oh, and, NBD, it's her fourth cover for the mag. On #4, Selena sheds the elaborate hairstyles she's been sporting recently for an undone (yet chic) 'do. The slightly mussed look is totally appropriate though, seeing as how she's sitting in the back of a convertible. #windblown Sellie wears a pink-and-red heart print Gucci dress and sports nearly no makeup: looking this serene in the back of a topless car is rarely this easy for us regular folk.
Rita Ora for 'Liberation.'

Rita Ora is the kind of woman who wears many, many hats (and we mean that both figuratively and literally). Figuratively, we've seen the British pop star moonlight as a model, a makeup designer and an all-around fashion fixture in the last few months alone. Literally, she also has an extensive, ever-growing collection of lux headgear. Like this rabbit-ear headband, for example. And this House of Holland metallic snap-back. And this ~very~ memorable, diamond-encrusted, antler-horned hat-mask hybrid, which we first spotted several weeks back—and now, has finally re-materialized on the cover of Libération.
Ariana Grande for 'Notion' Magazine.

What’s cuter than Ariana Grande on any given day? Aside from like, a bathtub filled with puppies, not a whole lot. Actually, after seeing the new cover of Notion magazine, we take that back. Dressed in a textured, black-and-white bustier crop-top and flared black skirt, Grande gets the cartoon treatment with illustrated embellishments from emerging artist, Hattie Stewart. OK, so, correction: the only thing cuter than Ariana Grande on any given day is now Ariana Grande surrounded by doe-eyed cartoon faces. (Sorry, puppies.)
Lady Gaga on the cover of 'Glamour' Magazine's Women of the Year' issue.

Lady Gaga takes the gold on the cover of Glamour's "Women of the Year" issue. Gaga sports a toned-down version of the Botticelli Venus wig she's been wearing in the lead-up to ARTPOP, but rather than wearing white face makeup or a large merkin mask, she keeps it simple in a gold Gucci wrap-dress. Though in the interview she says she "feel[s] so much more comfortable with, like, a giant paper bag on [her] whole body and paint on [her] face," we're glad she skipped the theatrics for this gorgeous cover, which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier.
