It's not October quite yet, but October's magazine covers were chosen and shot months ago. Gisele Bundchen, Natasha Poly, Lara Stone, Anja Rubik, and Chanel Iman are just some of the lucky women who grace the covers of various Vogue editions, as well as Harper's Bazaar, Elle, and W. Some play it sexy, some coy, and others cool. Step inside to get a closer look at October's cover shots.
We showed you 10 hot July covers but saved the steamiest for last. V Magazine just released its "The Sexy Body Issue" with five slammin' cover girls: Adriana Lima, Natasha Poly, Isabeli Fontana, Eniko Mihalik, and Lily Donaldson. As if that's not treat enough, every cover, except for Adriana's, features a scratch-off page that reveals an even sexier shot. Click through to see the bombshells, shot by Mario Sorrenti, then vote on which V babe is most Fab.
V Magazine Sexy Body Cover Features Scratch-Off "V" For More Sexiness From Lily, Eniko, Isabeli, and Natasha
Adriana Lima, Lily Donaldson, Eniko Mihalik, Isabeli Fontana, and Natasha Poly appear on the five covers of V magazine (issue #66) "The Sexy Body Issue." Mario Sorrenti photographed the bombshell bodies in some seriously revealing poses, and shockingly, there's more skin to uncover. The "V" on four of the steamy covers (Adriana Lima opted out) can be scratched off to reveal body parts that were carefully covered with the magazine's logo. The limited-edition scratch-off covers are being sold exclusively online at vmagazine.com starting today.
Frenzy over the World Cup hasn't escaped the fashion world, and our favorite soccer-inspired editorial comes from V magazine's "The Sexy Body Issue." Photographed by Sebastian Faena, Alessandra Ambrosio, Eniko Mihalik, Maryna Linchuk, Dree Hemingway, and Constance Jablonski appear in a 12-page spread inspired by Argentine footballers' wives. The layout is not unlike a South American celebrity gossip mag with photos of a breast-feeding Maryna and Dree in head to toe leopard print complete with sensational headlines like "Scandal! Girls Banned From Smoking!"
V magazine issue #66 also features the 50 hottest bodies in the world, and will be on newsstands July 8.

Fab favorite model Anja Rubik and her boyfriend Sasha Knezevic have ventured into something new: 25 Magazine. Sasha is now the editor-in-chief and creative director of the Austrian publication, while Anja is serving as fashion/art director. Another change: the former monthly mag will transform into a quarterly lifestyle publication. The Spring '10 issue features a handful of talent like Karlie Kloss, Eniko Mihalik, and Sessilee Lopez (left), with themes like Couture Sauvage and Spring Romance. Step inside for highlights.

>> Earlier this week, Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic celebrated their new new-look take on Austrian magazine 25 — the official launch issue features Constance Jablonski, Karlie Kloss, and Abbey Lee Kershaw on three separate covers, all styled by Barbara Martelo and photographed by Marcin Tyszka.
Sal Morale (who appears in the issue with girlfriend Maryna Linchuk) DJed the fete in an old Paris apartment, where fellow featured subjects like Heidi Mount, Karlie Kloss, Alana Zimmer, and Kasia Struss joined him. The issue boasts an abundance of couture — “It is rare to get so many couture clothes in a magazine," Rubik told WWD — and comes in a limited-edition English version (2,000 copies) and a larger print run in German (50,000 copies). “It’s an Austrian magazine so it was important to keep a link between the first issue and Austria,” said Rubik, explaining fashion editorials inspired by artists Egon Schiele (photographed by Victor Demarchelier) and Gustav Klimt (featuring Eniko Mihalik).
Knezevic and Rubik are already hard at work on their next issue of the quarterly magazine; noted the latter: “One of our contributors will be Julia Restoin-Roitfeld."

We're so obsessed with Fall's fresh color, as well as these styley editorials featuring it, we wanted to take you to the next level. Let's get dressed like a sexy explora. The bare bones: olive green shorts — you can cut a long pair, like these Chloe's, and cuff them — a rustic, green belt and a sexy neck tank. I included a swimsuit for when you need to trek across swampy terrain. A hooded parka should shield you from the elements, and a bushmaster hat will bring forth your inner Dundee. Dog tag necklaces are as tough as it gets. Adventure awaits . . .
Green is back in full force. The New York Fall 2010 catwalks were infested with all shades of green — olive, forest, chartreuse, apple, and hunter green, to name a few. Fab. Confused about how to wear these new greens oh-so stylishly? Here are a few of our favorite recent photo shoots with green from Vogue magazines around the world. Here is one smokin' way, like Eniko Mihalik. She proves that green on green on green can be downright gorge.
I was scared of him! I think a lot of people are scared of him, actually. I don't think I've ever really spoken to him — I'm still scared of him! I'm so shy. But every time I get confirmed there, it's still a big thing. If they ever said to me, 'Eniko, we want you to do our show, but you can't do any other shows,' I would be like, 'Ok!'
