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.
Jared Leto for 'BULLETT' magazine.

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.
Sky Ferreira for 'BULLETT.'

First things first: we want to wish a very huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Sky Ferreira! She may have turned 21 on Monday, but leave it to this girl to turn the tables and give US the present with a new magazine cover. Sky has an inimitable cool factor that just pops—whether it's on stage, during one of her frequent Terry's Diary cameos, or from the pages of fashion spreads. The model, actress (she stars in Grant Singer's new film IRL), and singer might have more slashes to her resume than 95% of the population, but the thing is, Sky doesn't just dabble. She does them all well (siiiigh). Luckily for everyone else not blessed with these triple threat skills, the multi-hyphenate's dishing on all of her projects and flaunting this cool factor for BULLETT's "Wild Issue." The star's showing off her choppy new 'do on the captivating magazine cover, which features Sky glancing sultrily back at the camera against a tangerine background. Thanks to some subtle rainbow highlights and a bold red lip, it's impossible to even TRY to look away. But then again, would you really want to?
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.
Elle Fanning covers 'BULLETT's' Surreal issue.

Whether they're transforming an underground style icon like Alice Glass into a bride, morphing an ingenue like Elizabeth Olsen into elfin queens (with pink hair, no less) or just serving up our quarterly dose of eye candy, we can always count of the creative minds behind BULLETT to do so in ridiculously original ways. But they've truly outdone themselves in the magazine's new Surrealist issue, turning Elle Fanning into a work of art— literally. The 14-year-old Ginger and Rosa actress looks every bit the part of a bonafide movie star on the cover, working a bejeweled Miu Miu midnight blue satin dress, fresh-faced makeup, and dreamy expression against the blue-gray background. And while the image is compelling enough to make us stop and take notice, the final touches- colorful rainbow streaks swooped right across Elle's wispy blonde hair- make it pretty much impossible to turn away.

Whether it's Blake Lively, Alexander Skarsgård, or Daniel Radcliffe, BULLETT list of past cover stars reads like a who's who of Hollywood (not to mention, a rundown of our celebrity crush list). But while the publication has definitely seen its fair share of hotties, we've got to admit- its latest crew might be our most favorite yet. Elizabeth Olsen, Pharrell, and British actor Aaron Taylor Johnson cover the "Romance" issue in total triple threat fashion, each sporting their own take on the theme. Elizabeth Olsen channels her inner fairytale princess on her cover above, Chanel high-necked dress, Dior jewelry, and pale pink hair. Talk about a transformation! The choppy 'do might be a wig, but the actress works the modern day Snow White look to perfection with magenta lipstick, porcelain skin, and a soulfully angelic gaze.
Alexander Skarsgård fronts BULLETT's Summer Issue.

Our dreary Monday just got a whole lot better, thanks to BULLETT magazine and a one Mr. Alexander Skarsgård. The actor fronts the publication's new "Sin Issue," heating things up in the sleek downtown spread shot by famed photog Tim Barber. And although the True Blood star technically shares the honors with Blake Lively (she scored a separate cover), for now all of our attention's on Eric Northman-uh sorry, Alex Skarsgård-and can you really blame us?! He's working a crimson Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci suit and shirt on the cover, but trust us when we say it only gets hotter from there. Get a sneak peek of the photoshoot below and see for yourself.
