MTV is full steam ahead with their year-ending lists for 2011. Now they are giving homage to the Best Fashion Magazine Covers and Kristen Stewart's 'W' is their choice.
Stewart's 'W' cover set off a firestorm on the Internet. It caused another trending topic on Twitter and every gossip and entertainment site tweeted their excitement for the cover. It was definitely one of the sexiest magazine covers this year without her having to be obvious (wearing short and revealing outfits) like the majority of covers.
It was just a sexy classic throw back to the days of Ann Margret who you can picture singing Viva Las Vegas along with Elvis Presley. It was tremendously done and not one star had anything close to this cover this year...not even close.
Another cover that really sent the world in a frenzy was the GQ UK cover. But the cover wasn't the only story...the interview inside really pushed the Twitter into overdrive with only three words..."My Boyfriend's English." 'Nuff said.
GQ UK had tweeted that Stewart's cover was their fastest selling of the year at that time. We have not seen another tweet indicating that it has been beaten.
The magazine covers MTV is praising are eclectic and really good but did they cause a Twitter frenzy like Ms. Stewart did...twice?! Don't think so. The interior spreads themselves i.e. the underwater photographs in GQ UK, got a lot of people excited as well.
Here is what MTV had to say about the W cover:
Another year, another set of Twilight covers! Taylor Lautner smoldered as a throwback to the Rat Pack in a lean suit and slicked hair on the November issue of GQ Australia, while Kristen Stewart also exemplified an homage to retro fashion as a '60s bombshell on the September issue of W. (Do yourself a favor and look at that cover in a bigger version—it's a cat's eye to dream about.) On the opposite side of the spectrum, Robert Pattinson poses with an alligator (um, sure?) on the April cover of Vanity Fair in a very Crocodile-Dundee-meets-urban-cowboy shoot that leaves us with SO many questions: Is that marsh real? Why is Rob's shirt so wrinkled? Is that crocodile considered an accessory? Is PETA mad? We're not! Now if only he'd undo just one more button...
See their entire list of covers here. Take a look at a few of Stewart's covers with a couple of her memorable photos from this year.
