ScarJo goes Old Hollywood on Vogue, Mariah Carey bares her post-baby (Photoshopped) belly on Shape, and more May cover standouts.
Close-up shot of her face on the cover...nude shot inside. Kudos to Heidi Klum for being one of the few models to go nude, without a baby bump.
Looking gorgeous as ever (those legs!), Charlize Theron was shot in a Versace gown by Patrick Demarchelier.
Didn't the dip-dye hair trend die already?
Sporting the opposite of Kate Bosworth'sdip-dyed hair, Rihanna goes with full-on roots galore for Elle's "Women in Music" issue. The singer's bipolar hair hue — which surprisingly doesn't look half bad — is paired with a studded, yellow lambskin skirt, jacket, and bustier by Versace
Harper's Bazaar UK
Fierce may be up there with fabulous as one of the world's most obnoxious words, but could there be a more fitting one for this Victoria Beckham cover?
There's no denying she looks beautiful, but for an actress, Penelope Cruz looks rather expressionless on May's Harper's Bazaar.
A slight snooze of a cover, but a beautiful Valentino lace dress on Cameron Diaz.
Marie Claire Australia
Don't you just want to give Jennifer Aniston a hug? Glad Chelsea Handler has her back.
Hard to decide what's worse — how obvious it is that Mariah Carey's body is Photoshopped or her outfit.
A white shirt, straw hat, and faux mustache...why not if you're Christy Turlington?
Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen, who play a married couple in HBO's Hemingway, cover May's W with a pensive shot.
Hopefully Crystal Renn's blond phase will be short-lived.
Sure it's a forgettable cover, but Scarlett Johansson pulls off Old Hollywood glamour so well it will never get stale.
Town & Country
Town & Country doesn't get nearly the recognition it deserves. Aside from offbeat and unexpected cover stars, they more often than not have unique cover shots and elaborate backdrops.
I know, I know, it has been said a million times, but Katy Perry's smurf hair has more than run its course.
Now here's an aspirational cover — Laetitia Casta shot by Mario Testino. Thank goodness we can always count on Vogue Paris to feature beautiful cover MODELS.
It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but at least this Lana Del Rey cover stands out from your run-of-the-mill cover shot.
