Kendrick Lamar for BULLETT magazine.
THANK YOU, BULLETT, for this spread and feature of Kendrick Lamar (a.k.a. Benz-is-to-me-just-a-car)! You see, even though we've been bumping good kid, m.A.A.d city for almost a full year now, we're still beside ourselves with excitement when dude shows up in a fashion editorial. He's widely regarded as one of the most talented lyricists in the game right now, a shining light for the future of hip-hop, but what isn't as heavily chattered about is Kendrick's love and connection to style. Thankfully, BULLETT's been paying attention and swaddles him here in a Balenciaga shirt, Alexander Wang shorts AND boxing gloves (because, duh), a Lynn Ban earring, and a massive gold Versace heavyweight championship belt.

Dang, Jared Leto has been killing it as of late. Between his cotton candy pink-colored bob on the cover of Candy and his high-fashion spread for Mr. Porter, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman is constantly surprising us with his transformative (and inspiring!) style. Today, he added another magazine to his ever-growing collection by doing a super artsy shoot with BULLETT, and we're—GULP—loving it a bit too much. Basically, Jared is juxtaposed against some seriously '80s backgrounds including spray-painted drywall, a hot pink, photo-covered tarp and, um, garbage bags? Yeah, garbage bags. In his first look, we peep Jared rocking his signature stubble and baby bun in a graphic black and white John Galliano blazer and matching shirt. In another shot, he gets little kookier in a Muppet-inspired (à la Rihanna?) fuzzy teal Paul Smith sweater with a silver Siki Im apron (!!!), Dior Homme shirt, white Calvin Klein trousers, Jared's own checkered socks and metallic Comme des Garçons oxfords.
James Franco for 'Bullett' magazine.

Listen, we're MORE than excited about all the chitchat surrounding Spring Breakers and it's upcoming release, especially when it relates to James Franco. I mean, we can't get enough of his sick braids, Hawaiian shirts, and all-around Riff Raff-inspired Florida rapper steez in the film, but, we have to admit, when we peeped Bullett magazine's latest photo shoot featuring Mr. Franco, it felt like the BIGGEST breath of fresh air. James is completely stripped of his gangster nuances—no tattoos, no grills, and (perhaps most importantly) no cornrows. Instead, he takes on an entirely different era—the '80s! James is juxtaposed against KILLER surrealist art deco backgrounds while sporting bold suit jackets and feathered hair in a spread that feels very (as Gaby Wilson put it) "Miami Vice meets Salvador Dali." We couldn't agree more. In his first look, James wears a fire engine red suit jacket with a matching red and white striped tie, black trousers and crisp white shirt. We love his fake-outdoor-but-obviously-in-a-studio set-up that (thanks to some serious mood-lighting) really brings the drama.
Alice Glass in June/July's BULLETT.

HOLD UP. Is that Alice Glass splashed across the glossy pages of BULLETT? A.K.A. the ultimate cool girl- so cool that she even shunned the title when NME bestowed it upon her back in 2008? Yep, the 23-year-old singer has unexpectedly gone high fashion, and you’ve gotta see it to believe it. We might’ve needed a double take, but it’s definitely the Crystal Castles frontwoman showing off a seriously chic side in the new 'Sin Issue' of the style magazine. The jaw-dropping spread, styled by Jessica Bobince, is appropriately dubbed “Grrrl Interrupted” and features Glass decked out in chiffon dresses, major makeup (helloo purple lips!) and even a wedding veil.

It is, in fact, uncomfortably difficult to tear myself away from unabashedly STARING at these images of Douglas Booth in the latest issue of Bullett Magazine. I mean, seeeeriously, the happy juxtaposition of Booth's fateful genetics and the fantastic rugged-yet-also-tailored styling of Ruben Moreira elicits the kind of slack-jawed joie de vivre that is just SO necessary on a Friday morning, AMIRITE? I know I am.
Daniel Radcliffe featured in "Bullett" Volume VI, The Obsessed Issue, on newsstands Feb. 28, 2012.

Holy transformations! The Daniel Radcliffe depicted in this Bullett magazine cover story is decidedly NOT the bespectacled wizardboy the world was first introduced to by Warner Bros. in the Harry Potter film series. He's also not the bow tie-clad window cleaner turned businessman in How to Succeed on Broadway, either. Bullett has portrayed Radcliffe as the burgeoning heartthrob, a role he carries SO so well and one we, frankly, are dying to see him in more. I mean, just look at the upward looking smoldering gaze. That effortless swoop of hair perched above a starched collar, pop of scarlet, and piercing blue eyes. The tasteful hint of facial scruff. YOWZAAAA, Mama like. And this thing only gets BETTER as you flip through the pages.

We don't want to play favorites, but in the vast sea that is Mega Fashion Mag Month, Bullett magazine has managed to float to the top of the pile. We've been OBSESSED with this new culture and style mag for the past year, not to mention its carefully curated array of subjects who are cinematically shot wearing the latest (and edgiest) labels. Every issue features up-and-coming actors and artists we should get to know as well as more well-known ones we need to know better. Case in point, this month's cover star, Christina Ricci, who's all dolled up in her best urban glam. Continue flipping the pages and you get an insightful interview with Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick conducted by indie queen Parker Posey. Oh, and then there's a profile of your guaranteed soon-to-be crush Matthew Gray Gubler. Shall we take an exclusive peek? YES, PLEASE.

Yes, there is no doubt that us at MTV are jumping onto the supernatural bandwagon. To be quite honest, that is a delicious bandwagon, and we have no shame to be a part of the hyper-sexual, totally thrilling spooky werewolf club. What is so particularly invigorating about girls and monsters? One word, my pets: brooding. And when you have the full moon waiting for you, you've got not much else to do than brood.
At first, Teen Wolf seemed like another Twilight-esque venture. Except when, in a work-drunk haze, we watched the first episode thrice in a row (it premiered after the Movie Awards, which was viewed several times to make sure we didn't miss a dern thing), and we realized: Wait--this is pretty gold. This guy turns in to a werewolf just when high school is at its most awkward and suddenly, he is a werewolf who is responsible for giving guff to our man (and a formal model) Colton. Which is great... except, well, look at Colton. There is really nothing left to do but melt by the intense one-liners, the smoldering rivalry, and all that body hair--and become a puddle of lupine goo.
