So Far, January's Covers Do Not Disappoint

January 2013 Fashion Magazine Covers | Pictures

This was a big year for Jessica Chastain, but judging by the January covers that are starting to trickle in, 2013 might be even better.

The flame-haired actress and face of Yves Saint Laurent's Manifesto graces a lion's share of glossies this month. While all are striking, the very best of them are the four from W created by four separate artists. Each is fantastic in its own right, and each lets Chastain's chameleon appeal shine.

But even if Chastain steals the show with W, that doesn't mean there aren't a few supermodels vying to give the actress a run for her money. Kate Upton on Vogue UK looks as lush as can be, while Carolyn Murphy on Vogue Australia is a sunny blast of fresh air that feels particularly welcome in this hemisphere.
