Natural was the big trend this month with a big chunk of the most noteworthy glossy cover stars going light on makeup, including both model and celebrity covers. February is the perfect time to go minimal with beauty looks (who wants to spend an hour doing hair and makeup that will quickly be ruined by hats and scarves?) and instead dial up fashion — and there were plenty of eye-grabbing, bold looks this month. Louis Vuitton, in particular, made a strong showing (sometimes for better, other times for worse).
Another trend? Doppelgängers. Hailee Steinfeld gave us Brooke Shields, Kaia Gerber gave us (who else) Cindy Crawford, Emily Blunt gave us Lady Gaga and Grace Hartzel gave us David Bowie. See all these and more in our roundup of the best and worst February 2018 magazine covers.
