Magazine covers have sometimes impacted Pop culture as much as successful songs or albums. Some amazing covers have made history and remain celebrated as part of the cannons, being it for the photo itself, headline or popular reaction to it. I'll start with Janet Jackson. Many celebrities have replicated her iconic photograph.

Image

Another one I personally adore is the Parade cover from 2008 where Mariah Carey appears surrounded by Platinum records defying Elvis Presley, which she eventually came to pass in America.

Image

This Michael Jackson cover from Jet (1991) resonates old paintings of Kings. :o

Image

I'll post more in time, would love to see some of you share your personal faves!

That Janet one is >>>

I think Celine's most famous are the ones about Rene's funeral:

It's a cover full of sadness.

From which year it's that cover on Time magazine? She resembles Nippy's haircut on MLIYL days. Beautiful!

August 12th 1996 edition.

CelineDionForum appear to have collated the majority of her magazine covers over the years and incredibly, she's covered 844 magazines :o

The benefits of being so international that you cover magazines everywhere from the US, UK and Canada to France, Serbia, Portugal and South Africa!
