Miley Cyrus in bed with Mert and Marcus.

Welp, it was just a matter of time until Miley Cyrus went completely topless for all to see. The signs were there: the pasties she wore to promote Unplugged, her Rolling Stone cover, her totally naked W cover where she uses a pillow as a coverup. The list goes on. As it turns out, Miley lost her pillow and went full-on topless—no pasties this time—for W. Fittingly, in the wee hours of the night, she tweeted a picture of her back in her bed, topless, and next to the photographers who took the portrait with the caption, “Coming soon in @wmag ‘bedtime portraits by @mertalass & @macpiggott’ so xxxited check it out to 2 the real deal.” We can’t begin to guess how the other “bedtime” portraits turned out?
Emma Watson for 'Wonderland.'

There are only, like, two or three people on the planet who don't already want to be IRL friends with Emma Watson, and after they get a load of her Wonderland interview—in which she spills about her social anxieties and wondering if she should apply for an internship—she'll probably be getting a certificate for being a BFF in the mail. The girl is just innately lovable and sweet as pie.
On the flip side, the accompanying fashion editorial—which seems to go with the first of her dual covers, the one Em herself describes as "Afro Prada Bruiser"—suggests there's also latent sultriness to the ex-Hermione Granger. She's always seemed wise beyond her years, but now, her vamped-up wardrobe and smoldering eyes finally seem to be catching up. For starters, Emma channels her inner biker babe in a Diesel Tribute minidress constructed of patched leather. With its zip-up front and tiny straps, this dress is a far cry from Hogwarts' strict dress code.
Is Rihanna fronting the next issue of 'Vogue'?

NAVY! Are you sitting down? No? OK, we'll wait. (*cue Jeopardy music*) That was for your own safety. Now brace for impact because it looks like your fearless leader, Rihanna, has MAAAYYYBE just landed herself the cover of Vogue yet again. (For the third time, NBD.) And we don't recall hearing ANY jumped-the-gun mumblings about this one, so congrats on keeping such a MAJORLY BIG DEAL under serious wraps, Vogue staffers. Until now, at least!
Lady Gaga on the March cover of 'Harper's Bazaar.'

After being noticeably absent from our lives thus far in 2014, Lady Gaga has resurfaced on the cover of Harper's Bazaar. While we've missed the multi-outfit days of November, between the spread and interview, there is a ton of fashion in this piece. There's prob enough to tide us over for, like, at least a week.
The spread was shot by Gaga BFF Terry Richardson, and on the cover she rocks a short blonde 'do and no shirt. She's not Miley-level nekkid—she has on a sparkly Saint Laurent jacket. And after staring at this picture for a few minutes, I'm honestly not sure what you could wear under that jacket, so no shirt seems pretty reasonable, IMHO.
Taylor Swift on the cover of 'Glamour.'

She may look like the sweet girl next door, but Taylor Swift's mischievous grin on the March issue of Glamour shows her sassier side. I mean, pairing that smile with the cover quote: "I would repeat all the same mistakes." The undertones are very #noregrets (dare we say #YOLO), BUT her wardrobe stays true to the twee T.Swift to which we're all accustomed. She wears a Rachel Comey dress with lace and ribbon details in the cover photo, and to soften things up a little, she traded her trademark red lipstick for a lighter shade of baby pink.

Does Vanity Fair know something we don't? Or did they just, like, happen to think, almost exactly one month before the Academy Awards, that a long, slinky gold dress was the perfect choice for our new favorite "It" Girl, Lupita Nyong'o? To be fair, we've yet to see something that doesn't look good on Nyong'o, but this dress is kind of suspiciously foreshadowing, considering the season (awards, not winter).
Yesterday, VF released a sneak peek (and by "sneak peek," it appears they mean the entire three-page pull-out) of their 20th annual Hollywood Issue cover, which was shot by famed photog Annie Leibovitz and "celebrates a year of spectacular film with a group of distinguished actors." Despite the fact that Lupita didn't make the front fold, we certainly think she's the center of attention.
On a recent Instagram spree under her new music label’s account, Saint Heron, Solange Knowles posted some very sunny pictures of her wearing her signature bright colors and showing off her flair for pattern mixing. But after a little sleuthing, it appears that these looks could be from a photoshoot with Cosmopolitan for their March 2014 issue, which would make total sense. Solange has always had a knack for springtime style. In fact, her wardrobe is like a how-to guide for wearing pastels without looking like a bag of Easter M&Ms. Those who suffer from all-black wardrobes and a fear of bold colors (*achem* what has two thumbs?), take note!
Judging by this spread and Miley Cyrus’ recent new look, slip dresses are poised for greatness this spring. Solange embraces the trend with a canary-yellow DKNY dress, only instead of going full-on ‘90s with a shag cardigan, hers is minimally styled with satin peep-toe mules from Sportmax and Jennifer Fisher rings. (Fun fact: J. Fisher is also a favorite of Sol's sister, Beyonce, who wore the brand to the Grammys with her Michael Costello gown.)
Miley Cyrus for 'W.'

No, the headline isn't wrong. This is a picture of Miley Cyrus, not Lady Gaga. Can you believe it? We barely can, TBH. After Miley's W cover leaked last week, we knew the full story and spread would likely be out soon. What we didn't realize was just how soon. A mere three days after the leak, the spread has arrived in full. Obviously, we need to discuss it.
While the piece, penned by Ronan Farrow, is titled "Miley Cyrus Laid Bare," Miley does little laying and is not entirely bare in the spread shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The bleached brows and longer bob she has on the cover remains throughout the spread, but instead of using only a pillow, she (partially) covers up with clothing, like a fully unbuttoned Balmain leather jumpsuit.
Emma Watson for 'Wonderland' magazine.

Today, while everyone and their mother was rehashing the Grammys, Emma Watson was sitting at home in sweatpants (or sweatpants under a dress?), eating pain au chocolat and admiring her dual covers for Wonderland magazine. OK, so I don't know ~for sure~ that Emma Watson ever wears/wore sweatpants today, but she MUST have been gawking at her covers, because WOW.
Vanessa Hudgens for 'Nylon.'

While we are the #1 fans of Demi Lovato's blue hair and its first feature on the cover of Nylon, we were eagerly waiting to see who the magazine tapped for their February cover. Well, we finally got our answer: It's Vanessa Hudgens! Two Disney stars in a row? Maybe Miley for March? The ex-Mousketeer hat trick is tempting.
Anyway, we're getting ahead of ourselves. Let's talk Vanessa. While the actual cover isn't out yet, Nylon just released some preview shots from her spread, and we are definitely feeling her styling. In one shot, she wears a pink bra with an Armani Exchange leather jacket and sheer Burberry Prorsum skirt. Are bras and leather jackets really becoming a thing? Katy Perry just wore the look in GQ, and if that's the trend for spring, I better stock up on publicly acceptable bras now.
