Flashing back to a time when magazine covers were designed like this—all blocky and basic!—and Susan Howard, Bruce Weitz and Pat Klous were considered good ways to sell an issue. Of course, a chest-exposing Jon-Erik Hexum still looks like he could move some copies. Just put that same image on anything but Cat Fancy and watch it fly off the shelves.
Cute, increasingly buff Real World: Denver star/AfterElton correspondent Davis Mallory and his equally hot "boo" Tyrone apparently just moved in together and commemorated the occasion with this (perhaps too) unselfconscious, sexy video all about being in love (were you ever this in love?), having "bang-up sex," smoking weed, enjoying Burlesque and Anna Nicole Smith and battling over who gets to be called Daddy...
Now that we have seen a peek at her Super Bowl stage, I must say I'm in love with Madonna's MDNA cover, which was released via her official Facebook page—the colors are beautiful, it's a great Mert & Marcus shot and the paneling of the face and slashes through the lettering echo the paneling of her triptych single cover. Here are some instant images it reminds me of, though I like that it doesn't feel like a retread...

W.E. tells the story of two fragile but determiend women—Wally Winthrop and Wallis Simpson—separated by more than six decades. In 1998, lonely New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward VIII's abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson. But Wally's research, including several visits to the Sotheby's auction of the Windsor Estate, reveals that the couple's life together was not as perfect as she thought. Weaving back and forth in time, W.E. intertwines Wally's journey of discovery in New York with the story of Wallis (Andrea Riseborough) and Edward (James D'Arcy), from the glamorous early days of their romance to the slow unraveling of their lives in the decades that followed.
