Our deep love for Demi Lovato is not a thing we keep secret around here at MTV Style. From her killer pipes to her arguable Topshop addiction to her airtight beauty game, Demi hits all of our favorite intersections of music and style. That's why, even though we're pretty sure this cover snap for the Spring Term 2013 issue of British Cosmo On Campus is recycled from Lovato's American Cosmopolitan cover shoot with Marc Hom, we're STILL bananas excited for it. I mean, look at this girl! The windblown loose ringlets? The sweet, underwire dress with a natural waist? The GLOWING bronzed skin that is starkly reminding us of our severe Vitamin D deficiency? She's a goddess.
Lauren Conrad on the March 2013 issue of 'Lucky' magazine.

If there's one thing we needed to see in the dead of winter, it's Lauren Conrad in cutoff denim shorts. The ex-Hillsie graced the March issue of Lucky magazine looking as summery as possible, reminding us that, yes, there is a light at the end of this dark, snowy tunnel. *looks outside, sobs* She's mastered the warm, West Coast look ever since her Laguna Beach days, so it's only fitting that Lucky used the headline "Think Spring!" over her sheer lace BCBG Max Azria tank, black Natori bra, Ralph Lauren denim shorts, and layered Isabel Marant pendant necklace ensemble. LC also WERKED her side-parted blonde waves and added a gorge crimson matte red lip to finish the look.
2NE1 for 'Complex.'

Guys, it's time to admit it: 2NE1 have officially solidified themselves as style icons. All four ladies—Dara, CL, Minzy and Bom—continue to completely dominate every photo shoot they do with inspiring, out-of-the-box looks. Proof: Their latest spread for Complex mag! They pulled out ALL the stops for this shoot—we're talking neon fur dresses, plastic chains, and leather tees, just for starters. Jeremy Scott outfitted their '90s-candy-raver-meets-The-Muppets ensembles (above), and we seriously can't get enough. Dara sported a shaggy blue fur dress paired with combat boots, while CL wore a neon green monster graphic tee and RIDIC nail art. Minzy showed off a magenta stuffed animal hoodie paired with graphic print leggings, and Bom sported a furry blue mini-dress that is TOTALLY reminiscent of Cookie Monster. Nom. Nom. Nom.
Miley Cyrus on the cover of "Cosmopolitan" magazine.
We don't know about you guys, but we're really glad Cosmopolitan reconsidered their roll-out plan for Miley Cyrus's March cover. Initially, the magazine teased they'd be releasing Miley's first post-pixie cut cover shoot piecemeal, starting last Friday. On paper, that seems like a fantastic idea. Get several days of buzz out of one image? Umm, HELLO, promotional jackpot! And then, a little after noon, they tweeted out a cropped version of her cover. The inevitable reaction was best summed up by Miley herself, "just what we've all been waiting for! A picture of my crotch."
Ryan Gosling on the November 2011 'GQ' Russia cover, the February 2013 'GQ' Australia cover, and January 2011 'GQ' cover.

Listen, there's never too much Ryan Gosling. We could see a pic of him every single day (which we might already do... shhhh) and never get sick of staring at that crooked smile and those piercing baby blues. It seems that GQ magazine is also FULLY on-board the R Gos train because when GQ Australia unveiled their February 2013 cover (above, middle) this week, it officially marked the third time that the men's fashion has recycled this photo. The first time we peeped this gorge Mario Testino-shot cover was on GQ back in January of 2011. Since then, it's been featured on GQ Russia (with a slightly different yellow background), and now GQ Australia. But, um, is anyone else weirded out how they blatantly Photoshopped a new suit on him in the latest version? *raises hand* We are.
Lana Del Rey on the March 2013 cover of 'Numero Tokyo.'

If there's one thing we love about Lana Del Rey, it's her ability to channel that badass "gangster Nancy Sinatra" look into every magazine shoot she does. Case and point: Her latest cover with Numero Tokyo. The March 2013 issue, photographed by Mariano Vivanco and styled by Miranda Almond, shows Lana transformed into an oh-so-sultry '60s-era Snow White with a giant red bow on her head and "poisoned" red apple in tow. Her beauty game knocked it out of the PARK—she sported an exaggerated cat eye (with liner on both the top and bottom lid), strong brows, light pink lips, and super dark bronzer to define her cheekbones. She left her long, brown hair down in soft waves, which gives her an ethereal, Disney princess feel. LOVE.
Beyonce in the February issue of 'GQ.'

If you still can't stop thinking about Beyonce's insanely hot GQ cover and spread, you're not alone. Just as we were barely recovering from all that pantless Beyonce amazingness, GQ released even MORE Terry Richardson outtakes, and, um, we may just explode. In the latest photo, Bey sports nothing but a lacy bra, Brooklyn Nets hat (duh), a silky white robe, thick gold chains, and—gasp—Calvin Klein men's underwear. For her beauty look, she showed off stick-straight strawberry blonde strands with blunt bangs, smoky eyes, and a glossy nude lip. *bows down* But Bey stans, there's even more Mrs. Carter goodness that hit the interwebs today. Are you sitting down?
Selena Gomez on the cover of "Nylon" magazine.

Give it up for Nylon magazine with the drop-dead cool girl Selena Gomez cover snap. Also, for the precise cover line. Judging from the Spring Breakers trailer that dropped this morning, "drops the princess act" is right! In the trailer and on this cover, Sel channels her inner bad girl. Nylon styles the girl who once was Alex Russo in a woven black flat brim hat, the light blue basket weave jersey from Jeremy Scott's Spring/Summer 2013 collection for adidas Originals, and an itsy bitsy string bikini underneath, and WOWOWOW this is a look we could get used to.
Lena Dunham on the February issue of 'Interview'/ Allison Williams on the February cover of 'Company.'
Photo: via 'Interview' and 'Company' magazines.
Hannah wears thrifted dresses. Marnie goes for Jackie-O shifts. Hannah's messy. Marnie's painfully neat. Let's cut to the chase here, shall we? If you watch Girls, then you know that Lena Dunham and Allison Williamss characters are about as opposite as they come. It's these undeniable differences that drove them apart as roommates at the end of last season, and- spoiler alert!- are already coming into play in season two. But while all the onscreen drama's clearly fiction, the co-stars continue to work completely opposite looks on a pair of February covers (coincidence?). Lena takes a retro turn in stripped-down mod for Interview magazine, framed in a black and white portrait by Gregory Harris. With her pixie crop, accentuated lashes, and statement eyeliner, the muse for the shoot is obvious (here's a hint...).
To say that Rihanna is the master of Instagram selfies is nothing new. I mean, her feed is littered with perfectly-lit self portraits, and in the February/March issue of Complex magazine, she totally owns up to it. "It's narcissistic, but whatever—everyone does it. I’m capturing personality... Everybody has their thing they like or don't like to see. It’s all in your head. That's why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek." Complex took this theme and really (really!) ran with it for their latest issue—they released not one, not two, but SEVEN COVERS with Rihanna sporting a completely different outfit in each. They also let RiRi have her own way with a Polaroid and published some seriously revealing selfies, which, um, are sorta NSFW. All looks were outfitted by stylist Mel Ottenberg and photographed by Zoe McConnell, and in one of our favorite cover shots (above), Rihanna wore camo print bra top, Chanel suspenders, oversized black trousers, large Chanel hoop earrings, and a bow-tied bandana.
