Much has been made on Fashion Internet as of late about a pattern surrounding cover stars on major fashion magazines, particularly those published in America. On Monday, Allure revealed that Kendall Jenner — a super-famous model who is already fronting three international Vogue editions this month — covers its annual "Best of Beauty" issue. On Tuesday, Harper’s Bazaar dropped its own October issue, which Gigi Hadid — a fellow super-famous model who is also the star of Dazed's just-released 25th anniversary issue — covers. You also might've heard about Gigi's super-famous model sister, Bella, who covers the October issue of both Canadian glossy Flare and British GQ, as well as September's Glamour and Vogue Paris

Listen up, magazines, we just have to ask: Was every other viable model, actress or general celebrity booked up this month? Is literally no other model fit to serve as the face of your respective books? We get that these women are beautiful, famous and have built-in followings of tens of millions of fans (and, duh, those issues must sell well), but one can only read artful prose about Jenner's nipple ring so many times. 

The madness ends now. We like models here at Fashionista, so we have a solution. Here's an alphabetized list of 50 contemporaries of Jenner, Gigi and Bella that leading American publications should consider, instead:
