Angel Haze, Iggy Azalea

Springtime is not only in the running for the greatest season ever because it’s when we can finally come out of hibernation—it’s also the time of the year when fashion magazines put out their music issues, cast our favorite artists in new editorial light, and get them to open up about their style and more. We already peeped Miley Cyrus' cover for Elle's Women in Music issue, but now we can see who appears inside and we are pretttty excited about who they tapped.

Eleven ladies are featured inside the issue, including Angel Haze, Iggy Azalea, Lily Allen, and Ariana Grande. Of course, they’re all styled to perfection. Angel Haze pulls off what must be a very heavy Dolce & Gabbana coin belt with matching earrings and a silk fringe top by the fashion house. Iggy, meanwhile, wears both some crazy bedazzled arm cuffs by Maison Martin Margiela and the wet-hair trend.

Lorde

There’s something different about Lorde’s Teen Vogue cover. *Squints eyes, cocks head* Oh right! Lorde is wearing a whole lot of color. The 17-year-old alt-pop wunderkind is glowing on her latest magazine cover, where she’s styled in an orange-and-red plaid top from Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection—a pivot from her typically goth, mostly monotone M.O. Lorde’s softer makeup—a light smoky eye finished with silver shadow and a natural lip (not her signature purple shade)—is another departure that we can get behind.

Lorde opens up in her profile about the unrealistic beauty ideals placed on pop stars—and, she hopes, their eventual disappearance. "There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she says. "I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too. I guess that's why I get labeled as 'the grumpy girl,' because I don't play into that."

Kiernan Shipka

I will never NOT be surprised that Kiernan Shipka is only 14 years old. Maybe it's because she fits in so well with the 1960s setting of Mad Men. But more likely, it's because her personal style is already more mature and high-fashion than most adults in the entertainment industry. She always (ALWAYS) kills it on the red carpet, and now, in this month's issue of Vanity Fair, she brings that same glamorous flair to a retro-themed photo spotlight. She even showed up to the interview looking flawless—a vintage Céline sweater, drop-waist Rag & Bone skirt, black ankle boots, and pink Miu Miu purse. Like...what??? I guess Kiernan is the one girl in the history of the world who hasn't had to go through an awkward preteen phase #blessed.

Lupita Nyong'o

If two magazine covers are better than one, five is, like... *eyes turn to hearts and spring out of skull, tongue unfurls onto floor, and a tiny version of you walks out from inside your mouth and faints on the tip* And that's EXACTLY (more or less) what happened when we saw that Marie Claire had tapped Lupita Nyong’o, Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning, Emilia Clark, and Kate Mara for the mag's May issue.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Lupita can do no wrong. For her cover, Lupita wears a hot-pink, snakeskin-trimmed gown by Christopher Kane. Inside, she wears a black-and-white optic Dior stunner that she accessorized with a ribbed scarf and a Graziela Gems ear cuff. And in her interview, Lupita is as poised as ever on the topic of other peoples’ opinions: "Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don't want to thrive on people's opinions of me."

As for her path to fashion darling-dom? It has a lot to do with her stylist, Micaela Erlanger, who covered the Hollywood Reporter with Lupita earlier this year. "I wasn't a follower of fashion. It was a world unknown,” Lupita says, “Then I met my stylist, Micaela Erlanger...and we came to interpret my style: clean lines, strong color."

Ellie Goulding

It's no secret that Ellie Goulding's style is on point. As a quick scroll through her frequently updated Instagram will tell you, the singer's fashion sense is the perfect combination of leather pieces, streetwear, and, like, totally elegant gowns. Her performance outfits often pair shorts and crop tops, but she looks equally as comfortable in a floor-length number at more formal events. Cosmopolitan's spread featuring Ellie totally nails her natural tough-yet-feminine vibe and puts her in pieces we can totally see her wearing IRL.

This peach Gucci dress, for example, shows off some cleavage and leg, and has black accents. It goes perfectly with her always expertly mussed hair—what doesn't, though?—and would be perfect for, IDK, something like the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Oh, yeah, she's performing at the awards on Sunday. Will she wear one of these dresses? She totally should, IMHO!

Beyonce

Ring the alarm. Beyonce is not only topless on her first magazine cover of 2014, Out, she’s also platinum with a bob à la Marilyn Monroe. We’ve seen a lot of different Beyonces over the years—case in point: We saw 17 of them just over the course of her visual album—but this is an entirely new look for Queen B.

Inside the magazine, we get a look at Beyonce’s revealing cover outfit: just two body chains and two tiny necklaces. But then again, those necklaces likely cost more than our clothes budget for the year, so you do you, Bey. Since she was in the midst of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour during the shoot, she was probably pressed for time and needed quick outfits to wear. (I mean, she didn’t even have enough time to sit down with the writer for a face-to-face interview—they emailed.) To be fair, though, Bey does make a great case for an all-white suit when she pops up in a beaded eyelet tuxedo in another shot.

Miley Cyrus

Does Miley Cyrus get more hours per day than everyone else? How else could she manage to be on her Bangerz Tour, act as the face of Marc Jacobs, and cover magazines practically every month? Her latest cover is a big one—Elle's Women in Music issue. Unlike her most recent cover—for W, where she was wearing a whole lotta nothing—for Elle, Miley has on a sequined jumpsuit from Marc Jacobs' Fall 2014 collection.

What Miley gained in clothing she lost in accessories—while her W cover featured baubles on baubles and bling on bling, here she only has on two bracelets and one ring. Her makeup is similarly just as low-key, with her strong brows (welcome back, bbs!) standing in stark contrast to her platinum pixie.

Holland Roden

Quick—everyone jump in the shower right now, because wet hair is IN. First Beyonce worked a saturated 'do for her Grammys performance. Then Harry Styles' hair was (mysteriously) soaked in One Direction's "Midnight Memories" video. The trend even appeared in Phillip Lim's show during New York Fashion Week. And NOW, Holland Roden is making us rethink hairdryers entirely in Line magazine's latest issue. The Teen Wolf star sports the wet hair look on the cover and in every single one of the inside photos, and honestly? We've never seen her look more unbelievably gorgeous.

Solange

Hair is officially the biggest accessory for spring, at least in the world of editorial spreads with our favorite female musicians. We kind of called this one after seeing Solange’s angled 'fro in a Harper’s Bazaar feature and V Magazine’s very hairy music issue covers—now Essence magazine has confirmed our inkling with their May 2014 issue dedicated to the topic of natural hair. Fittingly, the magazine tapped Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi—ladies whose hair (and music and style) we’ve always admired—to be the alternate cover stars.

Predictably, they all nailed it. Solange and Badu wore toned-down makeup, all the better to show off their wild curls. In a behind-the-scenes video, we get a closer look at their outfits. For the shoot, Solange stuck with a pastel palette, wearing a reverse-racerback, white lace crop top and mint crocheted skirt on the cover and an ostrich-feather-covered strapless dress and a pink floral jacket inside the issue.

Rita Ora

The topless trend is becoming so mainstream these days, it's a wonder designers even bother making shirts anymore. The latest "It" Girl to jump on the semi-nude bandwagon? Rita Ora on this month's cover of Elle UK. The British singer clearly doesn't need fancy clothes to look totally gorgeous, as she appears in nothing more than a pink Dior skirt and a Cartier bracelet. She is forced to share the spotlight with one other pretty gal, however—"Rosetta," her detailed ribcage tattoo.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
