Dont judge a book by its cover... Unless it's a magazine, in which case, sometimes the cover is the deciding factor of whether or not to buy the mag altogether. The best covers of 2011 returned to a new naturalism and a fun aesthetic, like the Lara Stone T cover we're still drooling over, pictured at left. Sure, there's still room for artifice in fashion (see: Stella Tennant on Vogue Italia), but 2011 was a year for reflecting on natural beauties, incredible models, and stellar photography. After toiling over hundred of covers, we're bringing you "The Best" according to us. Did we forget your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
It happens every year: Our ever-growing pile of fashion magazines inches higher with each passing month, and by the time December rolls around, we can barely sift through the hundreds of stylish images we bookmarked for inspiration. 2011 was no exception, and in a year that celebrated retro supermodels, androgyny, vivid colors, and plenty of experimentation in the beauty department, choosing our favorites was particularly difficult. The best editorials of the year ran the gamut from huge ensemble casts of blue-chip models styled by greats like Katie Grand and Carine Roitfeld, to intimate, one-on-one portraits of our favorite girls like Lindsey Wixson and Daria Werbowy. The acid brights that dominated the spring collections allowed for some pretty trippy trend stories last season, but the fall glossies featured much moodier imagery, with a number of gorgeous spreads in black and white. Here are the editorials from 2011 that will stay tacked up on our walls and fill our inspiration boards well into the new year—and beyond.
Last night Versace and H&M pulled out all the stops--and we mean all of them--to put on a runway show and party to celebrate their collaboration, which hits stores on November 19. Pier 57 was transformed into "Versace Hall" complete with a mirror-walled cocktail lounge (made to resemble Versace's show space in Milan) and a wood paneled runway in a pattern that seemed to mimic Versace's Greek fret motif (and also ensured everyone got a front row seat). Everyone except Anna Wintour was there (and maybe she was and we just didn't see her?): performers Prince and Nicki Minaj (wearing an enormous green wig and sequined Versace for H&M) sat to watch the show; celebs, all dressed in h-to-t Versace for H&M, included Blake Lively, Uma Thurman, Jessica Alba, Chace Crawford, Chloe Moretz, Jennifer Hudson and Alan Cumming; there were designers aplenty from Joseph Altuzarra to Alexander Wang to Christopher Kane; in keeping with the collection's '90s theme, '90s supermodels Linda Evangelista and Helena Christensen were there; and there were too many stylists and editors and socialites to count. "It looks good," Minaj told us about the collection as she walked the red carpet. "All the stuff they brought to my room today I was like, 'I'm keeping that!' Minaj confessed that she fell in her platform Versaces during the filming for her Superbass video but she said, "I'm not taking them off, fashion is pain, and I'm keeping them on, and Superbass went on to be such a big song, so maybe Versace's good luck."
The past four days have been a non-stop party for a lot of fashion people here in New York. And those Halloween parties have been well-documented. The Tribeca Grand's Overlook Hotel party, the Boom Boom Room's fete and last night's V party hosted by Terry Richardson drew the most fashion-heavy crowds and, as we all know, fashion people like to dress up. They also seem to like obscure references--many of their costumes were tough to identify, but still fun to look at. So, from Alexa Chung to Joan Smalls to Marc Jacobs, here are a bunch of fashion people in their Halloween best! Photos: Terry's Diary, Paper, Style.com, BFA

I don't like to do a lot of end of year reflecting about anything, except maybe all the shoes I wish I had bought but didn't (a girl can dream, right?), but 2010 has seen some major model mayhem. 2010 saw more diversity in the typically cookie-cutter world of modeling. Was it perfect? Of course not, but the modeling industry may be taking much needed steps into the right direction. The top models of 2010 came in all body types, genders, ethnicities, ages, and sexual orientations, proving that there's a lot more to being a successful model than a symmetrical face and a size zero frame. Click though to see our list of the models that made made it big in 2010.
