We all know Robert Pattinson has impossible cheekbones, piercing blue eyes, and one of the most celebrated heads of dude hair in the business. BUT did you know that before Twilight, even before Cedric Diggory, our beloved R.Pattz used those rosy cheeks and baby blues to model swim wear for the South China Morning Post back in 2003??? Honestly, this is probably old news for most Twi-hards since a few black-and-white photos of shirtless Robert Pattinson wearing only a scarf from that shoot cropped up online almost four years ago. Thanks to celeb blog Snakkle and their "celebs wearing underwear" round-up, we are born again into the world of Robert's early modeling career with yet ANOTHER photo from the same shoot, this time showing wayyy more outfit (also, man-thigh), and suffice it to say, we are way into it.
Zayn Malik's Teen Vogue cover.

Talk about going from zero to sixty! The One Direction dudes went from premiering their debut American magazine cover on Seventeen just LAST MONTH to today's big Teen Vogue reveal: each of the 5 guys (not the burger place) gracing their very own individual covers for the mag's December/January issue! *massages out neck crick from the editorial whiplash* Zayn, Niall, Liam, Louis, and Harry (the last to be revealed) give exemplary face behind digital recreations of each dude's signature, a quip from their interview, and a bold "HOT HOLIDAY STYLE" cover line (uhhh, I'll say!!).
They may be inhabiting separate covers, but they have to coexist on the same shelf somewhere (presumably in
my your bedroom after you've collected them all...), right?? Thus, the 1D dudes STILL coordinate their outfits with tailored casualwear in luxurious chunky knits, tweed and wool coats. We're talking soft charcoal greys and herringbone and ribbing and heathering GALORE. Plus, so much man-smize we can barely maintain homeostasis (1D AND a biology lesson! Don't say MTV Style never taught you anything *flips hair*) long enough to finish this post. Peep the rest of the One Direction dudes' individual Teen Vogue covers after the jump!
Azealia Banks in 'V' Magazine.

We couldn't have named V Magazine's spread better ourselves—Azealia Banks, Grimes, Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX and Porcelain Black really are the "Girls Of Now." From their killer music-making abilities to totally-on-trend style, these young ladies are totally pushing the boundaries in ALL aspects of their life, and we love that. Up first: Our fashion-y fave Ms. Azealia Banks. She stunned in her super long, purple mermaid waves, Dior hat, black sequin Donna Karan blazer, Alexander Wang leather bustier, and striped Norma Kamali briefs. (If only WE looked this good sans pants. *sobs*)
One Direction on the cover of Wonderland Magazine.

I'm not sure why or how Wonderland Magazine is the first editorial to unlock the "One Direction + cable knit cashmere sweaters + flexible hold hair product + PUPPIES" equation, but I am so THANKFUL for it. The cover and the extreme close-up spread that inhabits the pages of Wonderland's November/December "Obsession Issue" are such guaranteed lady-kryptonite, if I could cut the copy here and just embed a GIF of me sitting at my computer with my mouth gaping open and glittering pixelated hearts for eyes, I WOULD.
One Direction and Edie Campbell for British Vogue.

Looks like One Direction's "Little Things" music video isn't the only black-and-white release the boys are pumping out this week. Everyone's favorite Brit-Irish fivesome is also featured in greyscale alongside UK beauty Edie Campbell in the December issue of British Vogue — the mag's Pop Issue. The model/socialite and the internationally famous boy band were photographed by Patrick Demarchelier in deliciously throwback late '50s-inspired threads. One set-up they're in crisp, skinny-lapeled suits, the next, they're all wearing contrast-sleeve letterman jackets with teased high and combed back hair (yes, everyone — not just Zayn!).
Kristen Stewart is the master of transformation. By now, the Twilight star has tried just about every look—from a '60s bombshell to a vampy vixen to a bewitching beauty, and still manages to nail it every time. This month, though, she graces the cover of Glamour Poland looking very much, well, like herself. It's oddly refreshing to see K Stew donning high-fashion duds on a mag cover without transforming into a completely different persona. It's like she added just a touch of glamour to her everyday appeal, and we LOVE that.
Claire Boucher, is that you?! We're used to seeing Grimes wearing everything from witchy capes to ripped tights onstage, but scarves, gloves, and retro silhouettes? Eh, not so much. This is why we're so surprised—and excited—to see the Canadian musician showing off her versatile fashion chops for T magazine, proving that '50s-inspired ensembles work just as well on an indie music star as they do in Pleasantville soda shops. In this fashionable ode to "ladies who lunch," Grimes wears a Celine top, skirt, and scarf paired with accessories courtesy of U.K. designer JW Anderson. The prim, ladylike look is a far cry from her t-shirt and jeans uniform, but we've got to admit—she looks gooood.
2NE1 on the cover of 'FAULT' Magazine.

It's kind of impossible not to fall in love with 2NE1. Like, the moment we realized they also share a serious obsession with Jeremy Scott and decked-out winged sneakers, we were ALL aboard this K-Pop train. Typically, the 4-piece girl group (which includes Dara, CL, Minzy and Bom) can be seen sporting larger-than-life technicolor onstage ensembles or killer customized streetwear, but when we peeped them on the recently-released Dreams & Nightmares issue of FAULT Magazine, they totally transitioned over to the dark side. *cue spooky ghost sounds* All four ladies were clad in fancy, all-black ensembles paired with animal-inspired headgear that looked straight from the Viking era. And we're not talking cutesy little horns here—we're talking insane headpieces with spikes on them. Yeah. Spikes, people. On horns. The cover shoot, photographed by Giuliano Bekor and styled by Avo Yermagyan, shows a darker, goth-glam side of the girl group, which was used as a double cover with Kelly Osbourne's goth glam shoot from a few weeks ago. OMG, our cold, black hearts can barely handle all this goth-y goodness.
Lauren Conrad on the November cover of 'Allure.'

If there's one thing we know about Lauren Conrad, it's that she's got her beauty game on LOCK. Whether she's switching up her strands with hot pink tips or teaching us how to do a step-by-step half moon mani, LC is always sharing the best beauty advice with her fellow ladies. I mean, it's no wonder she's releasing a book about, well, exactly that (appropriately titled Lauren Conrad BEAUTY) and was hand picked as Allure's gorgeous November cover girl. Presh! For her cover look, she ditched her typical wing-tipped liner for bare lids, luscious lashes, and a fire engine red matte lip. She wore her hair down and straight, which gives off a soft and beautiful beachy vibe that's totally reminiscent of her Laguna Beach days. She finished her look with a navy 3.1 Phillip Lim bikini top and matching cotton silk Dior toile skirt. (No one remind us that winter is just a couple months away, please. Kthxbi.)
Rihanna on the November cover of 'Vogue.'

"Since my first Vogue cover, I've gotten a lot more fearless, a lot freer, a lot more comfortable with who I am," said Rihanna in a behind-the-scenes video during her November Vogue cover shoot. Honestly, we couldn't have said it better ourselves. RiRi appeared on the most recent issue sporting a super-short pixie cut, seriously smokey eyes, a fire engine matte red lip and bold red strapless Valentino Resort lace gown exuding TONS confidence. It's a totally different vibe than her soft and ethereal April 2011 cover where she looked more unassuming and cautious in her mermaid-inspired ensemble. "As I've started to change and grow up, I've started to embrace that. I've started to infuse that in my fashion, as well as my music," Rihanna continued. We couldn't be MORE on-board with Rihanna's ever-evolving look, especially her freshly-shorn 'do. She said, "I love cutting my hair. The shorter it got, the more I was falling in love with it. I felt like the long hair was holding me back a little bit. I loved it, but it was always a thing I had to think about and make sure it was done. It felt brand new."
