Magazine covers in 2010 could be arranged into two simple categories: the absolutely amazing and the offensively bad. But let's focus on the good here... 2010 was the year that brought us two sets of fantastic LOVE covers (including Alessandra styled by Katie Grand, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Lauren Hutton, styled by Fashionista columnist Sally Lyndley), Anna Wintour on the cover of the somewhat mysterious Industrie magazine, Dakota Fanning doing her best starlet in Dazed & Confused, and Lara's boobs, looking better than ever on the 90th anniversary issue of Vogue Paris. Overall, covers in 2010 were dynamic, bright, and a bit raunchy, so click through to see which ones hit the right note.

The 60th anniversary issue of German mag Stern Fotografie features Karl Lagerfeld's photography portfolio, specifically his shots of fellow German Claudia Schiffer. While we're head over heels with most of Karl's work, the six covers of the magazine are everything from crazy and sexy to mildly racist and all-over strange. Styling Claudia in six wildly different ways for the cover, Karl banks on the viewer's ability to recognize the pop culture references implied. While they're meant to be iconic and kitschy, blackface is never a good idea. Click through to see our takes on the images.
