COVER: RYAN GOSLING BY MARIO TESTINO, GQ GERMANY, JULY 2013

I’ll admit, I’ve never quite understood actor Ryan Gosling’s appeal, that is until I saw him bring his A+ fashion game to the Cannes Film Festival back in 2012, and more recently playing the suave, slick and sartorially sleek ladies man Jacob Palmer in the film Crazy Stupid Love.

Living up to the strap-line, the actor is the epitome of cool in a simple white shirt and pistachio sweater on the cover of GQ Germany July 2013.

The colour palette is fresh, zesty and screams summer, while the trickles of text in various fonts surprisingly do not take anything away from the striking Mario Testino lensed image and those piercing eyes.

Side Note: Yes I’ve seen the Notebook several times and still didn’t get the fuss but now I want to be him.

COVER: BEYONCE KNOWLES BY TERRY RICHARDSON, GQ US, FEBRUARY 2013

I’ve made it no secret that I am not a Beyoncé fan, (even though I think she is a great singer and performer). There’s simply too much anger within me stemming from the LaToya & LaTavia debacle paying for Grammys and all those plagiarism accusations. But I cannot deny how frikkin sexy she looks on the cover of February’s “The 100 Sexiest Women of The 21st Century” GQ, wearing only a severely cropped Nike tee, Agent Provocateur underwear, Lorraine Swartz Jewellery and a gold body chain by Manon.

From the low-res preview that was being circulated online, this had Terry Richardson all over it, but as we haven’t seen the singer strip off of a while now, It’s both welcomed, refreshing and appropriate given the subject of this issue.

Check out a preview of the scantily clad singer’s editorial below.

COVER: CHRIS HEMSWORTH BY SIMON EMMETT, GQ AUSTRALIA, DECEMBER 2012

Despite playing a mythical Norse God who wields the power of thunder and lighting, and a courageous Huntsman who guards Snow White, Chris Hemsworth proves that sometimes it’s just a simple smouldering shot of himself that makes a great cover, as GQ Australia name him their Man of the Year.

The handsome actor gazes intently with his sharp blue eyes, a relaxed styled tux, his tied up blonde hair and some manly stubble, making me hate the fact I can’t wake up in the morning and look as effortlessly cool as he does…

Check out the images from his editorial here.

COVER: RIHANNA BY MARIO SORRENTI, GQ MAGAZINE, DECEMBER 2012

December just keeps on getting hotter as a nude Rihanna covers GQ Magazine in an absolutely striking cover.

The star poses adorned with only her spiritually themed tattoos and an All Saints leather Cropped Escape Biker Jacket, and let’s face it, she needs nothing more! Everything from the composition, pixie hair, the provocative pose that amplifies her curves, and her attitude, is pure FIRE!

The Bajan babe’s seventh studio album Unapologetic hits stores on November 19th 2012. The latest single Diamonds is out now.
