The shot at left is from Rihanna's raunchy GQ spread. She covers their January issue in a picture that makes Jennifer Aniston's shorts-only shot look conservative, but she spent this weekend making up for it on a shoot with actual fashion for W. We hope she wears this McQueen (at least the top), this Proenza and if she insists on going naked, maybe one of the Givenchy jackets over little else. We're guessing she covers February, otherwise, we'll have to wait until March.

Best and Worst-Selling Glossy Cover Stars Revealed: Is This the Beginning of a Kardashian Backlash?
In the magazine world, 2011 has come and gone (January 2012 issues are already out). Thus, WWD has issued their annual report on the year's best and worst selling American covers--meaning, which celebrity faces, from Lady Gaga to Kim Kardashian, achieved the highest success rate at newsstands. The results, while largely predictable, included a few surprises.
September Issue Report: Jennifer Aniston Still Sells Magazines, Tonchi's W Down 14%
WWD's got the sales stats on the all important September issues. A quick break down of the winners and losers: Who's up? Harper's Bazaar: The Hearst title won big this past September with Jennifer Aniston on the cover. Sales were up 22%, making it the best-selling issue in seven years. Aniston's love life (or lack thereof) has always moved tabloid weeklies, and apparently she can move fashion titles too. Go Jen. Glamour: Not a huge increase for Glamour, but their J.Lo cover upped newsstand sales about 1%. Marie Claire: Only a slight increase here too--the mag's MK Olsen cover was up 1% from last year. Of course, these are pre-Maura Kelly numbers. It remains to be seen whether Kelly's controversial blog post will have an effect on sales and subscriptions. Who's Down? W: Sales for W's September issue under new EIC Stefano Tonchi were down a whopping 14%. We're hopeful about Tonchi's redesign and direction for the mag, so hopefully the drop can be chalked up to some kind of adjustment period. We're sure October, featuring a naked Kim Kardashian, fared better.
