As the new month begins, seeing who lands what magazine cover is always exciting. The honor of someone's first Vogue moment or Time's Most Influential undoubtedly serves lots of controversies. 2018 has been responsible for some of the best celebrity magazine covers on stands.
From the courageous students of Stoneman Douglas High School on Time magazine to Kylie Jenner photographed by older sister Kendall and interviewed by mom, Kris, for LOVE magazine, each of these covers caught our eyes - for very different reasons.
With a roster of newcomers such as Kaia Gerber and Tiffany Haddish to vets such as Nicole Kidman and Jessica Alba, you'll love flipping through the below gallery of the most beautiful covers throughout the year.

@nicolekidman is one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018—and one of our six #TIME100 covers. "Dead Calm was released in 1989. Big Little Lies was released in 2017. In the interim, Kidman has never once left our consciousness," writes @naomiwatts, the Oscar-nominated actor. "And even after decades, she continues to break new ground." Beyond being an outstanding actor, adds Watts, "Nicole has intelligence, compassion, kindness and humor that make her the epitome of a great woman and friend. There is no question that I and audiences the world over will continue to value and admire her for decades to come." See the full list at TIME.com/100. Photograph by Peter Hapak for TIME

Hair by @chrisappleton1 and make-up by @markcarrassquillo, manicure by #NatalieMartins. On newsstands Friday 8 June.
@tiffanyhaddish is one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018—and one of our six #TIME100 covers. @kevinhart4real met her on the #comedy scene 13 years ago: "She was young, raw and funny, almost like she didn’t have a care in the world. But when I noticed her car was packed to the brim with her belongings," recalls the actor, who stars alongside Haddish in @nightschool (out Sept. 28), "I asked her if everything was O.K. That’s when I found out she was homeless and living in that car." Hart gave her $300—"it was all I had with me"—and handed it to her. "Now Tiffany is bringing a whole new level of fresh to the comedy scene. She’s just so authentic and unfiltered," he adds. "You never know what’s going to come out of her mouth. And you can tell she’s having fun—she’s seen a time when things couldn’t get any worse, and she’s giving it all she has." See the full list at TIME.com/100. Photograph by Peter Hapak for TIME

@jlo is one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018—and one of our six #TIME100 covers. "As a kid growing up in the Bronx," writes Emmy-nominated actor @kerrywashington, "I used to watch Jennifer Lopez from the wings. Several of us girls would hide in the folds of the curtains at the Boys & Girls Club to watch her perform. We were in awe of our neighborhood role model and phenom. When Jennifer left the Bronx to pursue her dreams, I would rush to finish my homework on Sunday to watch her on In Living Color. She made me believe that you could come from where we came from and achieve whatever you imagine is possible." Lopez became the first Latina actor to earn over $1 million for a film and the first woman to have a No. 1 album and a No. 1 movie in the same week. Adds Washington: "But she’s also a mother, an entrepreneur, an activist, a designer, a beauty icon, a philanthropist and a producer. She is an undeniable force and a powerful example—not just for women of color but for anyone who has been made to feel 'other' and for everyone who carries the burden and the privilege of being a first."

Unveiling @ellefanning by @alasdairmclellan and @kegrand for #love19! ✨ “I feel I owe a great deal to those who have been around me while I grew up. I have had so many strong women in my life. My grandmother, Mary Jane, is a person who has just always been there when I needed someone. I really hate auditions, for example, and I’ll never forget at one audition when I was 12 I was just not having a good time at all – in fact, I fainted. My grandmother took me to Burger King to make me feel better, rather than scolding me for messing up. Such a simple act of kindness stayed with me.” Says Elle whilst having a tri-coastal chat over the phone with friend and fellow actress, @selenagomez 💕

Abel Tesfaye, 28, better known to the public as @theweeknd, has made a career out of hiding in plain sight. When he began releasing #music in 2010, he kept his persona intentionally vague, building buzz primarily via the Internet; fans grew to love him without knowing if he was a band or a solo singer. Now Tesfaye is a budding superstar, with a string of No. 1 hits (“The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Starboy”) and a new album, My Dear Melancholy, that tallied more than 25 million streams on @Spotify and @applemusic, respectively, during its first 24 hours of release—among the best digital debuts of all time. #TheWeeknd is one of three International covers showcasing the Next Generation Leaders.
