To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Cosmopolitan pulled out the big guns, casting the legendary Madonna as its May star with four special-edition covers. This is somewhat of a homecoming, as the 56-year-old singer posed for the magazine's 25th anniversary cover back in May 1990. Times have changed since then, but Madonna's level of celebrity certainly has not. The issue hits newsstands on April 14. {Cosmopolitan}

German designer Philipp Plein sure knows how to put on a wild (and insanely expensive) runway show, which often leads people to wonder how he can foot the bill for such large-scale events. In a new interview with W, Plein gives readers a peek into his immensely successful operation that caters to the richest of the rich, and how he got to where he is today by "having balls." {W}  

Uniqlo has re-released bestselling pieces from its cult-favorite collaboration with Jil Sander. The spring range includes jackets, button-downs and trousers in clean, slim silhouettes, and is available to shop right now. {Uniqlo}

Ever wonder why fashion is so obsessed with nostalgia these days? Dazed investigates this phenomenon of designers looking back — even just a decade or two — for inspiration. {Dazed}
