A fashion magazine cover is a highly covetable place for any designer look. Each season a select few looks are deemed worthy by editors and become repeat offenders. Last season, a sequined gold Balmain dress sparkled from the front of at least seven covers while Miu Miu put in its best effort to become the fall 2010 cover star. Both brands set the bar sky high, daring any new dress to beat them. The spring 2011 collections showed up for the challenge.
This season is drawing to a close and while the cover wars still rage on, we've narrowed down the top five most popular cover looks. Click through the see what made the cut.
If it's good enough to be the first look at Gucci, it's good enough for a cover. Showcasing the popular spring trend of color-blocking, this brightly-colored dress made seven cover appearances.
Gucci's show-stopper finale dress, made popular by Beyonce and Naomi Campbell's cover turns, also graced the cover of seven glossies.
Prada stripes are having a big editorial and cover moment this season, making this pink and orange dress a popular choice with eight covers.
Gucci's satin front knot dress makes a bold statement on anyone, making it the perfect, attention-getting look for a cover. It also nabbed eight.
The combination of stripes and graphic print made this Prada dress an unstoppable cover force, and the star of this season with a whopping nine covers. We're officially impressed.
In our hearts we know that landing five or six covers is nothing to shake one's head at, so here are the best of the rest. Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton make a few appearances, but unfortunately not enough to give this season's cover giants Prada and Gucci much competition.
