The image is taken from the recently held Met Gala 2014 event. Rihanna is wearing Stella McCartney and Beyoncé in Givenchy Couture. Oh, have you seen that infamous video of Solange‘s attacking Beyoncé‘s husband Jay Z physically in an elevator during Met Gala!? What do you think about it? (source)

Vanity Fair started this year with one of our favourite covers from them. Some of the world’s funniest comedians and comediennes (we are talking about Jim Carrey, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Rock, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and Maya Rudolph amongs others!) were posed in front of Mark Seliger lens with hilariously ridiculous outfits. Not to mention that Judd Apatow guest edited the issue. So, it was a perfect Comedy Issue!
Another favourite from Vanity Fair is the August issue with first time cover star, Scandal‘s Kerry Washington who really deserves more major magazine front page slots in the future. She posed in a sexy white cut out bikini, half underwater by Norman Jean Roy. American actress Jennifer Lawrence landed the February issue before her Oscar winning moment (who can forget that historical time when she slipped on the stage!) and her cover came in perfect timing.
More Academy Award-related actors whose featured in this year’s line up were Ben Affleck–who directed this year’s Best Picture winner, Argo–and 2013 Best Actor nominee Bradley Cooper (with the lovely Emma Stone) for March, 1954 Best Actress winner Audrey Hepburn for May, 2009 Best Actor nominee Brad Pitt for June (our least fave cover of the year), and 2003 Best Actress winner Nicole Kidman for December.
The rest of the cover stars are singer Taylor Swift by Peter Lindbergh, actor Channing Tatum by Bruce Weber, the late Princess Diana by Mario Testino, model Kate Upton by Annie Leibovitz (celebrating their 100th anniversary issue), and rapper Jay Z by Mario Testino.
One thing we realized is that VF changed their bold masthead to be more vintage, classic yet slim since October issue. We are not complaining about it, as long as they keep producing good covers and attention-grabbing headlines. Sometimes the headlines were silly and too obvious (i.e The Wife Who Outfoxed Kristen Stewart in December), but it’s our guilty pleasure to see what will they write next.

41 year old rapper Shawn Corey Carter or famously known as Jay-Z is looking good and all suited up for the December cover of GQ US. Based on the magazine cover, should we expect more covers featuring Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Fassbender and Mila Kunis just like previous Men of The Year issues?
